After the acquisition by PSA, Opel released the all-new Crossland X a few months ago at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, although clearly it was in development long before the French takeover. The Crossland X is a small crossover based on the Peugeot 2008. Opel has now taken the Peugeot 3008 as a stencil to create a bigger version called the Grandland X.
There is nothing more controversial than vehicles like the BMW X6. Dreamt up by Bavarian marketeers as a “four-door sport-activity coupe”, it has spawned a few imitators, including the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. This here is the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe, one of the fastest SUVs on the planet right now. But is the performance enough to overcome its looks?
Let us get this straight — we didn’t intend to buy a Mercedes-Benz of any sort. Aside from a couple of AMG models, Mercedes-Benz is mostly the default choice of brand-biased individuals who grew up listening to their parents wax lyrical about how they aspire to own a car with a three-pointed star on the bonnet. It’s true, your parents were right in their infatuation — Mercedes-Benz actually was at the top of their game back in the day (and I personally owned one of those old ones), but they fell by the wayside long ago, starting to regain their mojo only recently,
Italdesign’s new supercar brand Italdesign Automobili Speciali has shown off their new creation, the Zerouno at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Italian company has given the Lamborghini Huracan a fancier carbon-fibre cloak but it’s more than just a modified car. And the best part is, this isn’t a one-off destined to grace just the show stand but a production model. Italdesign plans to sell five of these machines.
The 2017 GMC Sierra All-Terrain, a new variant, has been added to the American carmaker’s line-up in the UAE and GCC. It was launched in the U.S. last year as the All Terrain X.
The compact sedan segment is a fast-growing playground leveraged by many luxury brands to add cheaper entry-level models to their range. BMW is now offering a new 1-Series sedan in China. The new model will be pitted squarely against the German flag-bearers, the Mercedes CLA and the Audi A3. Even though they had a long-standing base to use in the form of the 1-Series hatchback, BMW has taken their time to create the sedan. For now, the 1-Series sedan will be a China-exclusive model. But in the future, it might make its way into other markets as well.
Expanding the currently-popular Honda Civic family, the new Civic Si has been added to the line-up with an updated engine in the United States. The Si slots in between the standard Civic and the hot Civic Type-R. Honda claims the new model to be the “fastest, most powerful Si yet” even though its power output remains the same.
The second generation of the “new” Volkswagen Beetle is a much more interesting car than the one before it, but it’s struggling to make headway in our GTI-loving market. So VW has been offering this R-Line kit for a while now, to spice things up.
In the past few months, Chevrolet introduced a few special editions for its cars under the monikers Rally, Redline and Midnight. And now there is a new RST kit for its full-size SUVs – Tahoe and Suburban. But it’s not just a cosmetic treatment like the others. The changes go way deeper than the skin.
