The week in one story
1 September 2006

We've seen plenty of fresh metal - officially, and unofficially, on Autocar.co.uk during the last seven days.We've started with the hottest-looking Audi TT to date - the S-Line edition, and followed that with Honda's new CR-V.

We also brought you some great spy footage of the forthcoming 197bhp Vauxhall Corsa VXR, Maserati's new coupe and Porsche's 2007 Cayenne.

The biggest bombshell landed on Thursday, though, when Ford announced that it was effectively putting one of its premium brands up for sale - not Jaguar, but Aston Martin As Steve Cropley wrote in his blog, it could be great news for Aston, Jag and Ford.

Jaguar is still in dire trouble, but at least it is still producing some great products. The XKR was our star first drive of the week, with Ed-at-large Steve Sutcliffe describing the rorty coupe as 'one of Jaguar's best cars for decades, perhaps ever'. We also got behind the wheel of the Audi S3 and Kia Carens.

Next week the build-up to the Paris motor show starts in earnest. Watch out for Nissan's new SUV crossover plus concepts from Peugeot, Renault and Chevrolet. And we've also got some exclusive spy video of one of next year's ultimate luxury cars.
