The Citroen C3 Exclusive – Citroen Revival Continues
Citroen's revival in New Zealand is slowly gaining momentum. As reported previously, the plan from new distributor Sime Darby was to grow the dealer network, rationalise the range and add value to the products. So far, sales total just 138 units, though Citroen NZ is hoping to have between 350 and 400 cars on the road by year's end
The Holden Commodore SV6 – Sixes To The Fore
The SV6 takes the Lion's share of Commodore sales. Key to its popularity is sporty styling. It looks exactly like the SS, but is powered by a V6, which keeps company accountants happy. SV6 follows the same recipe in VF guise, and so is again expected to carry the sales for the range. It's the second rung on the variant ladder and costs the same as the old model, at $55,490.
The Jaguar F-Type V8 S – Hell Cat (Part 3)
The soft-top roof is designed to keep unwanted noise at bay and considering its massive footprint an average in-cabin dB reading of 77.9dB is pretty remarkable. Certainly it's tolerable, and there's always the cackle of the engine on the overrun to listen out for. Not all noise is nasty.
The Jaguar F-Type V8 S – Hell Cat (Part 2)
F also stands for Fresh, and the F-Type gets up to the minute underpinnings, designed for optimum rigidity and dynamics, minimum weight, supposedly. Cue an all-alloy body, except for the boot lid which is a composite design. There's so little conventional metal on the exterior that we had to attach the magnetic GPS antenna to the windscreen wiper blade!
The Jaguar F-Type V8 S – Hell Cat (Part 1)
And the F-Type does a pretty decent job of doing so. Where the E-Type stood for Elegance, the F-Type stands for Ferocious. No other way to describe it really, though Fantastic also springs to mind. Fuel efficient? Not quite so much.
Smart Forfour And Fortwo - New Rivals For The Volkswagen Up
The all-new smart Forfour and Smart Fortwo go on sale this autumn. Both have the same goal: to lure buyers away from mainstream rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, Hyundai i10 and Volkswagen Up through the promise of quirky, futuristic looks and the premium quality materials, build quality and equipment traditionally associated with parent company Mercedes-Benz.
Studio To Street Back In 2012 It Was Just A Show Car
The Italian countryside is at its resplendent best, as if to greet the Diso Volante. Now it might sound romantic, but it somehow befits the occasion. The area around Lake Como looks as beautiful as the gorgeous body of the Touring Superlaggera, which has been pulled out exclusively for an AUTO BILD test drive.
The Audi Q3 S – Clutch It Tight
You can count on your fingers the number of luxury cars from the German big three (sold in India) that have sported a manual transmission. Mercedes-Benz briefly sold the C-Class (W203) with a manual 'box. Audi offered the R8 coupe, powered by the 4.2 V8 with a rower. Heck, even Nissan offered the 370Z with a manual gearbox.
The Brazen One - The All-New Mini Cooper (Part 2)
There are two glaring omissions in the Cooper S, though. Firstly, the pedals aren’t finished in stainless steel with rubber grip inserts (which is standard in the previous model), and secondly, the steering wheel does not come with paddle-shifters. According to the local agent, the paddle-shifters can only be had with the Sports Automatic transmission, which is a $6k option (ouch).
The Brazen One The All-New Mini Cooper S (Part 1)
Mention “MINI” to anybody who loves cars, and adjectives such as “fun to drive”, “unconventional” and “stylish” will be used to describe the three-door hatchback. What’s amazing, however, is that these are the same words used to describe the original Mini, which was launched in 1959.
