A major manufacturer is giving Autocar readers an exclusive chance to get up close with a new crossover
19 May 2016

There’s nothing quite like new car smell – especially when it’s wafting from a brand-new model of car. And if you want to be among the first people in the country to take in that unmistakable fragrance from one of the latest SUVs to hit the market, this is your chance.

A major car manufacturer is launching a new crossover later this year, and has offered a limited number of Autocar readers an exclusive chance to attend a special event where they’ll be able to meet it in the metal. Nothing beats seeing a new car for yourself, and if you’re considering buying a new SUV, this is a brilliant opportunity to check out one of the latest machines to hit the market.

Guests attending the event will be able to get up close with the new car. They’ll be able to admire the design, poke around the boot, play with the features and try out the seats for size. Experts from the manufacturer will be on hand to highlight key features and answer questions.

The invite-only event will take place at a secret location in London on Saturday June 18. There will be a number of sessions, each lasting a few hours, for small groups throughout the day. There’ll even be some free food and drink thrown in.

To register your interest in receiving a pair of places at the event, just email paula.croggon@haymarket.com by June 3, 2016, including your name and contact details.
