There has been a lot of speculation, and negativity, on what the upcoming 2020 Land Rover Defender will look like, especially as there is no way the Defender can continue its classic looks in a modern safety-conscious world. With numerous spy shots hinting at something that looks like a previous-generation Land Rover LR4, the reincarnation of the legendary off-roader is largely expected to become the new boxy option to the blobby new Discovery. And the wait to see what the new Defender looks like is almost over, as a leaked image of the Defender surfaces, presumably from the instrument cluster of a pre-production prototype.
GMC’s all-new 2019 Sierra regular cab variant was introduced recently in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and GCC. Joining the 2019 Sierra crew cab body style, already on sale across the Middle East, the regular cab variant is joined by two models exclusively available for the region – the Sierra Elevation and AT4 regular cab trims.
As comparison tests go, this isn’t the most exciting, but it is probably relevant to a whole lot more people than pitting Porsches and Ferraris against McLarens and Lamborghinis yet again (spoiler alert: Porsches and Ferraris are always better). What we have here today are the newest segment of vehicles to sprout from the SUV revolution — the sub-compact crossovers. Not quite SUVs, but not really cars either, the sub-compact crossover gives owners the feeling of driving an SUV while keeping ownership costs within car-like levels. The newest of the bunch is the Honda HR-V, going up against the immensely-successful Nissan Kicks.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB is the latest addition to their crossover lineup. The GLB will be looking to capture market share by offering up to seven seats, which no one is currently offering in the luxury compact crossover segment.
The all-new 2020 Toyota Corolla has been revealed in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries. A new hybrid engine has joined the line-up. It is built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, giving it a lower centre of gravity, 60% more rigid body shell and multi-link suspension which Toyota claims improves handling and stability.
A hybrid Ferrari is not new to the market, as they had the limited-edition LaFerrari hypercar. But this time, the stable of the prancing horse has made permanent room for a hybrid. Introducing the SF90 Stradale, the most powerful road-going Ferrari ever which also has proven to be faster than even the mighty LaFerrari.
