Honda Civic Tourer for Frankfurt debut alongside NSX, Renault says goodbye to Twingo Renaultsport 133, Historic Jaguars in action at the Nurburgring

Honda's Civic Tourer will make its public debut at the Frankfurt motor show. The British-built Tourer is set to go on sale in 2014, and will be shown alongside Honda's NSX and a refreshed version of the Civic hatchback.

Renault is bidding a fond farewell to the Twingo Renaultsport 133. It says that with a replacement Twingo being readied for launch next year, it is time for the entry-level Renaultsport model to retire. That said, the last six examples of the car are still available for sale.

Jaguar will celebrate its motorsport heritage at the upcoming Oldtimer Grand Prix this weekend. The event, which is held at the Nürburgring, will see Jaguar put its C-type and Mk II into action with Le Mans winner Andy Wallace piloting the latter. The hybrid C-X75 hypercar will also be present.

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
