While the 12th-generation hatch was released last year, the previous sedan has soldiered on – until now. The booted Corolla will ride on the TNGA platform, naturally, and be powered by the new 2.0-litre engine, which produces 125kW/200Nm. A hybrid will join the line-up in 2020.

At 225kW, it’s the most powerful JCWfettled Mini to date – and it’ll cover the 0-100km/h dash in 4.9sec thanks to AWD. If it sounds a lot like the BMW X2 M35i, you’re right, the 2.0-litre four is shared. Two specs are offered, priced from $57,900.

VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT

The range will start with the 140TSI and top out with the 206TSI with 4Motion. Inside, the new MIB3 infotainment system will be available with a range of screen sizes – expect an MBUX-style “Hello Volkswagen”.
