Aqua is back, baby!

You guys, have you noticed? Aqua is back. No, I’m not talking about the shit band from the 2000s that had the hit about Barbie. I’m talking about the colour. On cars, specifically. In even more specific terms, car brands are seemingly embracing the idea that not all cars have to be black, white, grey or silver, though the targeting is very much where you’d expect it – at the younger buyer group, the ones who aren't going to be spending more than about $40,000 on a car...

The C-HR, which launched this week predominately as a rival to the Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke, is being sold here exclusively with a 85kW/185Nm 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine...
