Audi Q2 designer had the young, fashionable and sporty in mind

As soon as the covers were lifted on the all-new, 2017 Audi Q2 at the Geneva International Motor Show, the design polarised almost everyone who looked at it. Many punters loved its almost ‘non-Audi SUV’ appearance, but some didn’t. And the ones who didn’t like it, really didn’t like it...

2016 Mazda CX-9 improves fuel economy by 25 per cent

The new turbocharged four-cylinder petrol 2016 Mazda CX-9 due to arrive in Australia later this year will be almost 25 per cent more fuel efficient than the outgoing V6 model. In one fell swoop, Mazda’s answer to the Toyota Kluger, Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento will therefore go from being one of the thirstiest petrol cars in class, to one of the most frugal...

How does the Koenigsegg Regera drive without a gearbox? Koenigsegg Direct Drive (KDD) explained

If you're anything like me, you would have become weak at the knees when the Bugatti Chiron was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva motor show. That knee weakness then turned to hot flushes when the wraps were taken off the Koenigsegg Regera. While it's not as quick as the Chiron to 100km/h (a little over 2.8 seconds v. 2...

Morgan EV3 unveiled: Morgan 3 Wheeler gets electrified - UPDATE

The Morgan EV3 is an electrified version of the already niche Morgan 3 Wheeler, and it has made its debut in pre-production guise at the 2016 Geneva motor show. The new EV3 model continues on the theme that the motorcycle-engined 3 Wheeler started with design inspiration from "1930s aero-engine race cars, classic motorcycles and 1950s fantasy automatons" - whatever that means...

2017 Holden Colorado caught on camera - UPDATE

Here we have what is claimed to be the first glimpse of the 2017 Holden Colorado's front-end styling. Dramatic change, right? The image was posted to Thai site MZCrazyCars, and going on the bad photoshop effort it appears to have come straight from the production line (hard cropping and blank background indicate that the car's surrounds were sensitive...

Fiat Tipo hatch and wagon revealed

The hatch and wagon body styles for the latest-generation Fiat Tipo have been unveiled at the 2016 Geneva motor show. The new variants join the sedan that was revealed in the middle of 2015. Thanks to its reduced rear overhangs, the Tipo hatch measures 4.37 metres long, 1.79m wide and 1.5m tall, and has a claimed 440 litres worth of boot space...

2016 Fiat 500S gets sporty at Geneva motor show

So you want a Fiat 500 but you don't want the poppy, stroppy Abarth model? The 2016 Fiat 500S is the car for you. This new, sportier-looking version of the 2016 Fiat 500 debuted at the Geneva motor show, bringing with it a revamped exterior and revised interior which, according to the brand, is "unmistakably 500 and even more attractive"...

Ssangyong SIV-2 concept debuts at Geneva motor show

The Ssangyong SIV-2 concept that debuted at the 2016 Geneva motor show this week answers the question: "how would a bigger Ssangyong SUV look?" No, we're not talking as big as the Rexton, but if the mid-sized Ssangyong concept model offers any indication of what a production model to sit between that and the Tivoli could look like, the answer to our rhetorical question could well be: "quite nice, actually"...

Mercedes-AMG naming convention about brand philosophy, not raw figures

It used to be so simple. A Mercedes-Benz 300E was an E-Class with a 3.0-litre engine. Even the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG used to identify an SL-Class with a 5.5-litre V8 tuned by AMG. With numerical model suffixes of 45, 63, 65 and now 43, how do these translate to the vehicles they represent? If the numbers are important, why release a 43 when there is already a 45? CarAdvice spoke with Mercedes-AMG Chief Executive Tobais Moers who said, “a 45 is a different attitude of car (to a 43)”...

2017 Renault Scenic: Funky French MPV not bound for Australia

The curvaceous new-generation Renault Scenic MPV will not herald the nameplate’s return to Australia. Renault’s fourth-generation Scenic comes 20 years after the first iteration launched, and largely defined a new segment. This time, in classic French style, it clearly wants to make something practical sexy as well...

Ssangyong XLV revealed

Boot space is at a premium in the small SUV segment, but not when you’ve got a backside as big as the Ssangyong XLV that debuted at the 2016 Geneva motor show. The new Ssangyong XLV showcases what happens when you take a compact SUV and make it, well, not so compact. The boot of the XLV is claimed to be able to swallow a massive 720 litres of luggage, a huge jump of 297L over the regular Tivoli on which it is based...

Kia Australia mulling Cee'd GT, next-gen Cerato Turbo

The sporty Kia Pro_Cee’d GT may be gone from Australian showrooms, but the Korean car maker’s local arm has not given up on the dream of a quick halo hatch model. Despite positive reviews, the 150kW 1.6-litre turbocharged Pro_cee’d GT exited the local market in late 2015 after poor sales led the company to decide against introducing the updated model that debuted overseas in June...
