Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The final car off the GS platform that’s been spawning offspring since Howard was member for Bennelong – think such automotive gems as the Chrysler Sebring, Dodge Caliber and the second-generation Mitsubishi Outlander – also marks the first application of Mitsubishi’s promising 1.5-litre direct-injection turbo-petrol four ... with yet another CVT. Features include Apple CarPlay, a touchpad controller in the console, and a head-up display across a three-tier range that starts at $30,500. o e eo g t suc auto ot ege s

Mazda MX-5 RF limited edition

The forthcoming special edition MX-5 RF was initially only offered in Japan to customers who are part of the ‘Kizuna’ loyalty scheme and existing MX-5 owners, but now buyers in Oz can expres their interest in one of the 110 units headed our way. Among the tasty inclusions are Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers, a front strut brace and a pair of Recaro seats. Visually, there are side skirts and front and rear spoilers from the Mazda Kuroi sports pack, and BBS alloy wheels. The drive-away price in your choice from five colours (with a contrasting black roof) is $55,790, with deliveries in March. p y, Kur w t w express d n roi colour urs h

Volkswagen Polo Mk6

The forthcoming sixth-gen Polo is a bigger small car boasting more tech than the model it replaces. Built on the MQB component set, the Mk6 has a roomier cabin and a 25 percent bigger boot (now 351 litres). The five-door-only hatch also sits on a 100mm-longer wheelbase to deliver greater rear legroom. Engines will run from 1.0-litre triples to 1.5- and 2.0-litre fours (the latter in the GTI, here Q2), backed by both manuals and seven-speed DSGs.
