Two new 4x4s from Ford and Volkswagen are set to go head-to-head - but these are vans. Following VW's news of a 2.5 TDI T5 Transporter 4MOTION, blue oval bosses have told Auto Express about plans for a four-wheel-drive Transit.
With a sharp new look, a finely tuned rear-wheel-drive chassis and luxurious cabin, all the fresh Lexus IS range needs now is a high-performance flagship -and this week's mag has the pictures to prove it.
Although it looks like a Toyota, this SUV is not the next RAV4. Called the Tiggo, it's actually the work of Chinese firm Chery. However, with a side-hinged tailgate and rear-mounted spare wheel, the RAV4 was clearly an inspiration.
We revealed first details of the Alfa Brera Spider in a world exclusive story in issue 849. Now, this week's mag has conclusive proof that development is well underway, and the car will arrive in showrooms in 12 months' time.
