Where it goes pear shaped is when it comes to the powertrain in this downsized turbocharged world.
It's not all that often that you get a refreshed model, where at first glance the updated car looks quite a lot different to the model it replaces. Normally it's a subtle exterior nip and tuck and a bit of an upgrade to the interior, but this is not the case with the facelift Mitsubishi ASX.
Replacement for the Kicks at the entry-point of Nissan’s crossover/SUV line-up will be styled to resemble the latter instead of the former.
It is worth noting though that all of the mentioned prices include the 25-cent hike in fuel and Road Accident Fund levies.
Publication also claims that the Fortuner could receive the upgraded 2.8 GD-6 engine.
Biggest anomaly for the year was when Subaru’s more powerful Impreza WRX STI ran slower to 100 km/h compared to the WRX.
Lengthened Jimny will be built by Suzuki’s Maruti division and feature the same chassis and drivetrain as the regular three-door.
Newcomer could carry the SVR moniker and retain the 6.5-litre normally aspirated V12 engine, albeit ramped-up to 610 kW.
Application of a four-cylinder would result in the engine being turned-up and therefore possibly stressed.
Manual transmissions and big capacity naturally aspirated engines still ruled the roost.
