Mazda MX-5 : next-generation model could be cheaper

The next-generation Mazda MX-5 could see a significant price cut. The Mazda MX-5 was once a far more affordable car, but over recent years its price has crept higher and higher: the current model sets buyers back almost $50,000 on the road. However, the Japanese brand's local arm has indicated that the fourth-generation model, which will be revealed later this year and go on sale in 2015, will be more wallet-friendly.

Suzuki iV-4 SUV : Production version due here in 2015

The Suzuki iV-4 is set to become a production reality, with Suzuki Australia confirming the road-going version of the funky, tiny SUV will be sold here in 2015. The iV-4 was first shown in concept car guise at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show, and while the model had already been confirmed to make it to production, it won't be a successor to the Jimny model that was axed late last year due to lacking electronic stability control.

Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet axed

It seems the drop-top two-door Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet was a niche too far for the Japanese brand - it is finished. Nissan global chief planning officer Andy Palmer confirmed to CarAdvice at the 2014 New York auto show that the odd-bod Murano Crosscabriolet is done and dusted. "That's fair to say," he said when asked if the all-new Murano revealed at the show signalled the end of the convertible variant of the previous generation model.

Land Rover Defender : new-generation model set to include ute variant

The next-generation Land Rover Defender has plenty of roles to fill when it finally makes it to production, and one of them could well be a ute or pickup variant. Jaguar Land Rover global operations director Phil Popham told CarAdvice that the new-generation Defender model - which was previewed in 2011 by the DC100 concept and is expected to be revealed in 2015 in production form - has its work cut out for it.
