2015 Jaguar XE Review : International Launch in Spain
http://www.caradvice.com.au/353443/?yt_desc - Read the article here. It’s no secret the global launch of the all-new Jaguar XE this week is likely to go down as one of the most critical events in the company’s 80-year history. Not only is the XE’s success hugely important if Jaguar is to achieve critical mass with its worldwide production volumes, it’s also intrinsically tied to the brand’s very viability. Make no mistake; you’re looking at Jaguar’s future top-selling model, boasting a platform that will underpin a succession of the brand’s upcoming cars. Success won’t come easy. Jaguar has a ‘David and Goliath’ fight on its hands with three hugely successful German marques primed to block the niche Brit player from taking a slice of what is a massively lucrative segment. For decades, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have controlled this end of the prestige spectrum. Japanese brand Lexus is in there too, peddling luxury and service, but it’s the Bavarian brands that have continued to rule this market with a succession of outstanding cars. And so the XE is Jaguar’s contender in a looming five-way battle for the all-important volume end of the luxury segment against the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class – all of which offer high-value cachet and superb engineering.





2016 Toyota Hilux Reveal : Walkaround
http://www.caradvice.com.au/355443/?yt_desc - Read the article here. CarAdvice.com.au takes a look at the new 2016 Toyota Hilux, unveiled simultaneously in Sydney, Australia and Bangkok, Thailand. The 2016 Toyota HiLux has been revealed at last, ahead of its arrival in Australian showrooms in early October. The new generation of Australia’s top-selling commercial vehicle was unveiled simultaneously at a special event in Sydney as well as in Bangkok, Thailand — where the reveal was also broadcast across several public television networks. The eighth-generation Toyota HiLux will launch with four engine options including a punchier new flagship diesel, two gearbox options (including rev matching between gears for manual gearboxes), and three model grades. There will be a total of 31 variants available, up from 23 with the old model. Locally, the HiLux will be available in Workmate, SR and SR5 trim levels. These variants will be detailed further closer to the vehicle’s launch. CarAdvice will bring you more details as they come to hand.





2015 Mitsubishi Mirage LS Review
http://www.caradvice.com.au/355169/ - Read the article here. The Mitsubishi Mirage is the best-selling micro car on the market in Australia. The Mirage is also one of the cheapest models available from a brand that’s a household name. So if you’re in the market for a first car, a cheap second car for the family or maybe something to get you to bowls and back, should you take a look at a Mirage? I doubt many people are going to buy the Mirage for the way it looks. But at least it’s fairly inoffensive, and it’s got a cute smile on its face. Trainspotters will note that this is the top-spec LS, which gets fog lights, 15-inch alloys and a rear spoiler. Not sure about the Pop Green paint though, and even less keen on the $550 it costs to option it on. I think I’ll stick with the standard white, thanks. What’s more important than all that however, is its size. It’s only a smidge over 3.7 metres long, which makes it ideal for squeezing into tiny spaces in busy suburbs. You’d think squeezing would be a neat segue to talking about the interior space, but it’s actually okay in here. Even set to my driving position, I’ve got enough legroom and decent headroom. Unlike two of its biggest rivals, the Fiat 500 and the Suzuki Celerio, the Mirage also has five seats rather than just four. And, there are six airbags in here, including curtains that stretch to the second row. They form part of the Mirage’s five-star ANCAP safety rating. And there’s a nice deep boot behind me too, which is big enough to swallow a couple of weekend bags or a week’s worth of shopping. Sliding into the front you’ll notice that there’s no big screen here, that means no sat-nav and no reversing camera – although that’s not such an issue in the Mirage thanks to its good visibility and square bum which make it easy to know where its corners are. The dash layout is very basic, and there’s nothing even close to a soft-touch surface in here. But it’s refreshingly easy to use, and you get handy buttons on the steering wheel for audio, phone and cruise control. The Mirage has the most convoluted voice-controlled Bluetooth pairing system I’ve ever used, but it knows your phone it cleverly finds you nice and quickly every time you get behind the wheel. Speaking of, let’s go for a bit of a spin… While the Mirage might be the best selling car in its class, our pick of the tiny tikes is the Suzuki Celerio, which is newer, more polished, more comfortable and more fun to drive. But the Celerio can’t match the Mirage’s five-year/100,000km warranty, and five years of roadside assistance if you get your car serviced at Mitsubishi, which could work in your favour, because four years of capped-price servicing will cost you just $1000. Mitsubishi also regularly offers good driveaway discounts on Mirages, so if you’re keen, we recommend haggling hard and pushing for a deal. There may be better options, but if purchase price, running costs and safety are your priorities in a micro car, the Mitsubishi Mirage is well worth a look.
