Ssangyong is back with an all new attitude

So many years ago you may or may not remember Rich testing the Ssangyong Rexton 4x4.  It left him a little dissapointed to say the very least - but now it seems the Ssangyong team are planning to make a splash when the land into the UK with their new model line-up, the first of which is the rather more understated Korando.

A crossover that will see the brand aiming at a new market, the Korando is compact and a lot better looking than anything else the Ssangyong have produced, so best of luck, and maybe we will see one on the road from September 2011.

Audi's Worst Kept Secret - The Q3

Audi has finally released the information on the badly kept secret that is the Q3.  A compact SUV making it's debut at Shanghai Motorshow, the Q3 is said to look just at home amongst the city walls as it would scaling hills and fields.

Increased ground clearance and Quattro all wheel drive systems make the third model to be introduced into the 'Q' family of cars carry the same luxury and experience of driving an Audi SUV - just in a smaller shell.

Engines will all include start-stop technology offering the choice of two 2.0l petrol engines and a 2.0l TDI all reaching impressive mpg, however not as impressive as the efficiency focused 2.0l TDI reaching a high 54mpg.

Priced from around £25k this Audi Q-car is a nice introduction to becoming an Audi SUV owner and will be sure to offer everything Audi include throughout their range.
