THE NEW METAL HEADING OUR WAY
If you deem the CX-3 a bit small and the CX-5 too big, the CX-30 from Hiroshima could be for you. There are eight variants and two powertrains (atmo 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre four-cylinders), with prices starting at $29,990. It gains an upmarket interior and the choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
Want to merge a luxury GT with the performance of M? Like a best mate, the M8 has you covered. The 460kW/750Nm twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 does the go-fast bit, while the 8 Series cabin takes care of the pampering - and all for $352,900. With AWD, itíll get to 100km/h in a claimed 3.2sec.
As the successor to the 488 GTB, the F8 Tributo packs Pista-rivalling figures. The 3.9-litre twin-turbo V8 cranks out 530kW and 770Nm, good for 0-100km/h in a claimed 2.9sec. Itíll cost you $484,888 but the number allocated to Oz is unknown.
While smaller stablemate T-Cross is the budget choice, the T-Roc is for those seeking something more extrovert in nature. Prices are set to start in the mid-$30K region for a 140kW/320Nm four-pot with 6.8L/100km economy and a 392L boot.
