Nissan’s new Altima sedan will arrive in Australia next month, priced from $29,990 plus on-roads.
Set to replace the Maxima in Nissan’s local line-up, the Altima will be available with a choice of two petrol engines and four trim levels, rounding out at $45,390 plus on-roads for the range-topping Ti-S.
The Koup is available in two trim levels with a 2.0 litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine and a zesty 1.6 litre turbocharged four-pot in the Koup Turbo.
Just days after pictures of the convertible were leaked, BMW released images and specs for the new drop-top, which is lighter than its predecessor and comes with petrol and diesel engines.
Expect to see the 4 Series convertible arrive locally early next year, joining the coupe range which arrived this month. (And take a look at our review of the new 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupes, released to Australia just this week.)
New rules were announced in Victoria regarding speed cameras this week, which may now see them deployed at the bottom of steep hills and ‘hidden’ behind fixed roadside objects.
Nissan announced that its Qashqai SUV will be heading to Australia next year as a replacement for the current model, which is badged locally as Dualis. The Pulsar SSS sedan is also on its way next year, joining the SSS hatch which is already on sale.
In case you missed it earlier, check out our Kia Cerato Koup Launch Review in which we sampled both the 2.0 litre naturally aspirated and 1.6 litre turbo-powered variants.
We drove all three of the locally-available 2014 BMW 4 Series Coupes at their Australian launch; the 420d, 428i and 435i. There is another one coming: the entry-level 420i model set to arrive in Australian showrooms in January. Check out our review.
And finally, we drove one of the most important new cars to arrive in Australia before its 2014 launch; the new Mazda3.
And that’s… the week that was.
