BBR’s new Stage 1 package for the current Mazda MX-5 delivers huge output and performance improvements.
According to Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer at Daimler AG, “Our Concept A Sedan shows that the time of creases is over. With its perfect proportions and a sensual treatment of surfaces with reduced lines, it is the next milestone of ‘Sensual Purity’ and has the potential to introduce a new design era.”
While the 2018 Navigator certainly has an imposing presence, Lincoln should be admired for resisting any temptation to overdo the glitziness. The ethos behind this all-new full-size SUV is summed up by Kumar Galhotra, brand President, who said, “Quiet luxury is both a look and a feeling.”
As Porsche has already demonstrated with the 718 Boxster and Cayman, four-cylinder premium sports cars are perfectly acceptable. Indeed, maybe the arrival of those models prompted Jaguar to develop new entry-level versions of the F-Type Coupé and Convertible?
Thanks to a supercharged 6.2 litre V8 engine which produces 707 bhp (527 kW / 716 PS) with 875 Nm (645 lb/ft) of torque, Jeep’s 2018 Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has become the world’s most powerful SUV.
Over the past few years, several members of Buick’s range have been based on Vauxhall / Opel models. That arrangement looks set to continue (United States import tariff increases notwithstanding), even after PSA Group completes its purchase of General Motors’ European subsidiaries.
While Vauxhall’s and Opel’s marketing departments will probably portray the new Insignia Country Tourer as perfect for people who like to explore the great outdoors, it’s also very suitable for urban environments.
Porsche’s FIA World Endurance Championship ambitions for 2017 are simple: win the manufacturers’ title, win the drivers’ title and win the 24 Hours of Le Mans race (all for a third consecutive time). The absence of Audi this season makes achieving those objectives slightly easier.
Toyota’s Australian subsidiary has built a unique Hilux pick-up that’s designed for extreme off-road use. As its name suggests, the Tonka Concept was inspired by the toy truck maker.
Three factors should help the new Fullback Cross appeal to people who are considering buying a pick-up as their daily driver.
Compared to a regular Street 750, the 2017 Street Rod looks much more purposeful thanks to its unique 17” alloy wheels, colour-coded headlight cowl, bar-end mirrors and shorter tail unit.
Following the introduction of Kia’s Optima Plug-in Hybrid saloon in 2016, a Sportswagon estate version has been unveiled. It’s a logical move, especially considering the threats being made by numerous cities to restrict or even ban diesel-fuelled vehicles.
