The automotive news wheel is always turning. If you’re not constantly checking CarAdvice – which you should be doing, by the way – it can be easy for some headlines to slip through the cracks.
To make sure you haven’t missed anything important, we’ve gathered what we reckon are the hottest news stories from this week, right here. Check them out, and let us know what caught your eye.
With a rugged, body-on-frame construction, the Terra is something of a successor to the last-generation Pathfinder. It also breaks the mould set by Nissan’s current road-biased set of crossovers.
Toyota will use the Geneva motor show to unveil a new Corolla. Likely to be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture underpinning the Camry, C-HR and Prius, it promises to bring sharper looks, more technology and more space to the segment it already owns in Australia.
It even looks like Toyota will offer some interesting colour and roof combinations. Yep, hell has officially frozen over.
The biggest news? The entry-level Neo Sport (formerly just Neo) comes standard with the 7.0-inch MZD Connect system and a rear-view camera. Pricing kicks off at $21,490 drive-away in manual guise.
The Lexus UX was polarising in concept form, and it looks like the production car is going to split opinion as well. We saw the first official image of the car this week and… it’s definitely a Lexus. Full details will be revealed in Geneva.
It looks like a regular car on the outside, it’s got a (mostly) conventional interior and it should, hopefully, not be too expensive. Is this the mainstream electric vehicle to take Australia by storm?
Does that mean we’ll be seeing an X5-based pickup in the near future? Not necessarily, but BMW Australia is keen nonetheless.
Although the exterior design is evolutionary, the interior is a huge leap forward from the current car and, in news that will please tech nerds and eco-minded buyers, the launch petrol and diesel engines will be boosted by 48V hybrid technology.
Speaking of cars that will excite eco-minded luxury buyers, the I-Pace has been officially unveiled and – shocker – it looks really good. With a 90kWh battery and dual motors, it’ll hit 100km/h in 4.8 seconds and cover 480km without a charge.
Starting price? $119,000 before on-roads. Still want that Model X?
