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.

    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
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
