Volvo unveiled the Coupe Concept this week, matching sleek style with the company's new 298kW petrol-electric hybrid system.
In other news, the Kia Niro concept was unveiled this week, evolving the Korean carmaker's styling language and promising an “innovative new powertrain”.
Volvo’s V40 Cross Country went on sale this week, reviving the Cross Country badge in Australia and offering all-wheel-drive with the petrol-powered T5.
There were rumours this week of the possible demise of the Toyota FJ Cruiser, with reports out of the US suggesting 2014 could be its final year.
It was another busy week in the TMR garages, with some hotly anticipated models arriving on the local scene.
We drove the new BMW Z4 sDrive20i, 28i and 35is; a range starting at $80k and each the modern embodiment of the sports roadster.
Ford’s new Fiesta ST offered up a fun factor off the scale, with its beautiful 1.6 litre turbo-charged engine.
We also put the Hyundai i30 Tourer Elite Diesel under TMR's addled eye. It offers plenty of space, style, practicality and ride comfort, and is priced from $31,390.
Volkswagen’s Golf 103TSI Highline DSG also graced the TMR garages this week; VW would seem to have a monopoly on beautiful interiors - and this one also comes at a nice price.
And finally, “big” is how we would describe the Mercedes-Benz GL 500 BlueEfficiency; big engine, big car, but a big thirst for fuel too.
And that’s... the week that was.
