People often say “don’t forget where you came from”. Although we’re focused on every new car, every last detail here at CarAdvice, we have an extensive back-catalogue of news stories, lifestyle yarns and reviews.

Here’s a look at what happened on the week of March 26 in years past.


26 March 2018: Volkswagen Touareg revealed

Pitched as "Volkswagen's claim in the premium class", the new Touareg is a showcase of the brand's latest design, technology and luxury – as any flagship model should.

It should be in Australian showrooms very soon, too


24 March 2016: Audi R8 V10 Spyder revealed

The all-new 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder has debuted at the New York motor show, a week after fans scored an unscheduled glimpse of the convertible performance car free from camouflage.

Get a load of that open-top V10 goodness


26 March 2015: Kia Optima revealed

The new-generation Optima represents a design evolution, building on the styling of the current model that kicked off Kia’s uprising in 2010.Angular headlights flow seamlessly into the Optima’s diamond-effect ‘tiger-nose’ grille, while a wide lower air intake and side intakes pushed to the edges of the muscular bumper add width and presence to its new front end.

Sadly, the handsome Optima won't be around in Australia much longer


25 March 2014: Ford Everest confirmed for production

To be produced in Thailand alongside the Ford Ranger ute with which it shares its basic underpinnings, the seven-seat Everest will compete with other rough-and-ready, ute-based four-wheel-drives such as the Holden Colorado 7 and Isuzu MU-X.

Is it your pick of the ute-based SUV segment?


27 March 2013: Audi A3 sedan revealed

Debuting at today’s New York auto show, the Audi A3 sedan marks the small car’s entry into the compact sedan market for the first time.Blending Audi’s three-box and coupe design philosophies, the 4.46m-long A3 sedan has short overhangs, sharper door lines and slightly larger wheel arches flares than the 4.29m-long Audi A3 Sportback, while riding on a 62mm longer wheelbase and being 11mm wider.

Now six years on, it still looks damn good


27 March 2013: Range Rover Sport revealed

Revealed in New York today ahead of its official unveiling at tomorrow’s auto show, the second-generation Range Rover Sport is up to 420kg lighter than its predecessor – down from 2535kg to 2115kg – a feat achieved largely through the luxury SUV’s switch from its old Land Rover Discovery 4-derived separate-chassis underpinnings to an all-aluminium monocoque borrowed from the new Range Rover.

Like the A3 sedan revealed on the same day, the Range Rover Sport has aged rather gracefully


27 March 2009: Tesla Model S concept revealed

Mr Musk says that the car will be built in California and initial customers can expect delivery during 2011.Interestingly, you will be able to select three different power configurations, that’s a 257-kilometre, 370-kilometre and 482-kilometre battery packs.The company is planning a production run of up to 20,000 Model S a year once the factory is at full capacity in 2012. However, the go ahead on this particular Tesla model depends on whether the company receives an A$500 million loan from the Department of Energy.

A decade later and Model S continues to be a trailblazer
