1 March 2013

McLaren will release further details of its new P1 hypercar at next week’s Geneva motor show. McLaren Group Executive Chairmen Ron Dennis CBE, and Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver Sergio Perez, will be joined by F1 presenter Lee McKenzie to discuss the new car. The P1 will be the third new McLaren in as many years. 

Chevrolet has announced pricing for its Trax, a small SUV. Two trim levels will be available. The entry level Chevrolet Trax LS range will start at £15,495, the higher-specification LT model will cost £17,495. LT models will get Chevrolet’s MyLink media system which features a seven-inch touchscreen display.  

Hyundai has introduced a range-topping trim for its i40 range. The new Premium SE trim sits above the Premium models. Standard kit includes a heated steering wheel, ventilated and heated front seats, heated rear seats, adaptive xenon lights, lane departure warning and tyre pressure monitoring. Prices for the Premium SE models start at £26,065.

Mini is celebrating back-to-back wins in the world’s most challenging rally with a limited edition version of the John Cooper Works Countryman ALL4. Called the Dakar Winner, it features Mini’s four-wheel-drive system, a turbocharged 215bhp four-cylinder engine and a matt black finish with bright green details.

is the Chevrolet Trax built at the same factory as the Mokka? I was recently talking to a salesman at a Vauxhall dealer who said that they are struggling to get Mokka's due to the numbers available, sounds like GM  should be upping production especially if the Trax is coming soon also.
