In releasing the new S60 Cross Country, Volvo thinks there might just be a niche for an extended ground clearance D segment sedan. And, the company is hedging its bets, by also launching the V60 Cross Country estate.
The Sorento must surely be one of Kia Motors’ most profitable vehicles, especially in Europe. British market prices now stretch beyond the GBP40,000 mark, which arguably makes the latest model a premium brand vehicle.
Is it far fetched to suggest that Honda might eventually withdraw from the European market? That would be the worst possible scenario but where is the vision to prevent such a humiliation for this company, a global giant which keeps failing in EU markets?
Jaguar Land Rover's announcement that it is planning a production plant at Nitra in Slovakia potentially raises its capacity by as much as 300,000 units a year. Calum MacRae considers the announcement in the context of the company's plant-model mix, its future growth strategy and outlines why the first model to be built in Slovakia could be the next Defender.
It's a big seller in the USA, but here in Europe, the latest Subaru Outback is a fairly rare sight. That's a shame, as it makes a terrific family car and its rev-happy Boxer diesel engine is a brilliant piece of engineering for enthusiast owners.
The car's exhaust system is a technology hotbed, playing a decisive role in controlling emissions and acoustic comfort. Continuing just-auto's series of research snapshots - pulled from its automotive research platform, QUBE with comment from market leaders Tenneco and Faurecia - Matthew Beecham reviews some technical trends in the exhaust sector.
A plug-in hybrid e-tron is coming in 2016 but Audi UK is about to launch the new Q7 with just one engine: a 272PS 3.0-litre TDI. Will that be enough to tackle the multi-engine new Volvo XC90, a car Audi admits is likely to become the segment leader?
Ease of use was the single thing that impressed me most about Land Rover's new, seven seat, Discovery Sport.

For many years, power steering technology was focused on hydraulic systems but demand is now favouring electric power steering mainly due to fuel consumption and logistical benefits. In this briefing extracted from just-auto/QUBE's research service, Matthew Beecham provides an overview of some key companies and developments in the steering sector.
One of the major reasons for Kia's phenomenal rise in recent years is its ability to produce specific models in and for the markets where they are sold. It's a 'think globally, act locally' approach.
GM Europe's Mokka is one of the most successful B-SUVs in the region, but does that mean that few people are interested in a pricey Corsa? Not at all, with orders for Opel's new OPC and Vauxhall's just-launched VXR soon to cross the 1,500 cars mark.
Just as in Europe, India or the USA, looking at China as one market doesn't give you the full picture. Differences across geographical areas are one reason why some models are suddenly hugely popular, while others are fading rapidly.
Minnow Mitsubishi Motors UK (MMUK) is only a bit player in the 2.5m unit UK new car and 321,000 commercial vehicle market but has long punched above its weight in one tonne pickup trucks. And it's making some pretty bold claims for its fully redesigned L200 line.

As noted recently on just-auto, Mazda is on a roll in its home market but it’s also doing very well in North America, China, Australia and across Europe. The company's largest sedan and its only estate car has been refreshed and is now selling better than ever.
Vehicle sales ended the first half of CY2015 down 11%, due mostly to a tax rise for Kei-models. Yet not every OEM is suffering. Mazda was up 47% in June, while multiple European brands are also enjoying high percentage gains.
