Mark Jones lets the new BMW M2 Competition and M5 Competition loose at Gerotek.
What a week! I didn’t just get to drive one special car, but two, in BMW’s M2 Competition and M5 Competition. BMW M and Mercedes-AMG are going at it hammer and tongs and the result is that the brilliant and exciting machinery just keeps coming the way of performance enthusiasts.
The Eco Boost Auto Convertible is very pretty, but it’s a real gas-guzzler.
Cheaper than the GTI with most of the creature comforts.
Output increase is nominal but it does feel crisper.
Initial disdain was due to lack of airbags and poor score in international safety tests.
AWD system makes it a breeze to handle the 260kW of power from 2.5l turbo-charged Boxer engine.
The model range was recently given exterior nip and tuck to update looks
Has the same mechanical pedigree as always and is ready for off-roading.
Car aimed at first time buyers, young families and mature people.
New offering has a perky 998cc three-cylinder turbocharged engine.
Behind the wheel, Navara is nimble and road friendly, despite being hulky.
Apart from trademark trims, it also comes with good spec set of safety features.
Plan is to curb the manufacturers from manipulating outcome of a laboratory test.
Ford’s little number also scores high for reliability, comfort and style.
