Mitsubishi compact SUV concept previews next ASX

Mitsubishi will take the wraps off a new compact SUV concept at the 2015 Geneva motor show in March, and the car could offer some clues to the design of the next-generation Mitsubishi ASX. Described as “a declaration of intent for Mitsubishi Motor Corporation’s future direction”, the compact, five-door crossover appears to be an evolution of the XR-PHEV concept that debuted more than 12 months ago at the 2013 Tokyo motor show.

Audi board member for technical development Ulrich Hackenberg threw his hand in the air to admit he culled the previous all-electric R8 e-tron range that was due to go into production, instead pushing his engineers to boost battery range.

Jeep Renegade baby SUV 'no risk' to brand's tough reputation

Jeep’s global boss says the soon-to-launch Renegade small SUV is not risking the brand’s hard-earned reputation for producing tough and rugged vehicles. The Jeep Renegade is set to launch in Australia later this year and will become the smallest offering from the American brand. It will sit in the ever-expanding subcompact SUV segment currently occupied by the likes of Holden Trax, Ford EcoSport, Peugeot 2008 and the incoming Honda HR-V.

Fiat convertible delayed after switch from Alfa Romeo

The switch from Alfa Romeo to the Fiat or Abarth brand for the upcoming convertible built by Mazda has meant production delays of up to four months. The Fiat or Abarth-badged MX-5 equivalent was originally slated to be released as an Alfa Romeo this year but the decision was taken last minute to switch brands in order to keep the premium feel of the Alfa product.
