The new DS 3 Crossback has been revealed in full ahead of its arrival in UK showrooms this May.
Jaguar wants E-Pace owners to take the car here, there and everywhere. Adventure is the name of the game, and it’s why you’ll see E-Paces plunging through distant lands or sweeping through bends framed by craggy mountains and rivers in most of its promotional material.
It’s all too easy to get familiar with a car these days – you jump in and out so often, that you forget what you like, and those niggly issues can just become the norm.
As you might’ve noticed in the headlines this month, Jaguar’s been having a bit of a tough time of it. Sales of its traditional saloon-shaped models – the XE, XF and XJ – have shrunk dramatically in the last 12 months.
What is it? The UK’s car buying community is gobbling up compact SUVs at a fearsome rate, with the likes of the Volvo XC40 and Jaguar’s E-Pace showing that people really do like a premium badge and a high ride height more than most things. It’s why this new Q3 is so crucial to Audi, as it’s an offering in a drastically growing segment.
The future’s electric – that’s what many car manufacturers would have you believe. In recent years, there’s been a surge (excuse the pun) in the adoption of plug-power, and Jaguar is the one of the latest to join the electro-fray with this, the I-Pace.
What is it? This is the top-end version of Hyundai’s Tucson – fitted with an all-new powertrain for the brand. It’s a mild-hybrid unit, but fitted to a diesel engine. That means it’s not going to resonate well with your traditional hybrid buyer, but should instead appeal to those who simply want a slightly more powerful, more versatile diesel engine.
What is it? Think of Skoda and what springs to mind? Practical estates perhaps, or maybe even a series of rugged SUVs. Well, the Czech company also has a bit of form with making incredibly low-key yet punchy performance versions of its production cars and this – the Kodiaq vRS – is a sporty take on the brand’s popular seven-seater.
Porsche has announced pricing for its new Macan S – the fruitiest version of the brand’s compact SUV.
SsangYong is offering zero per cent finance and no deposit on its Tivoli and Tivoli XLV diesel models.
