Column: From the Editor

After the break-up of supplier giant Delphi Automotive into Aptiv and Delphi Technologies, Delphi Technologies is in transition as a specialist Tier 1 supplier of propulsion technologies to OEMs. Meeting changing fuel mix and e-mobility market needs are at the top of CEO Richard (Rick) F. Dauch's agenda. Dave Leggett caught up with him in Frankfurt to hear a progress report.


Volvo surges as Lynk and Geely sales nose-dive 19 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

What's the best selling premium make C segment SUV in Europe? A BMW. And what's number two? Hint: it's neither a Mercedes nor an Audi. The Volvo XC40 is not only ahead of the GLA-Class and Q3, it's closing the gap to the market leading X1 too.

General Motors future models - Holden 17 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

Once the number one make in Australia, Holden now mostly dwells in position number nine. In August, sales dropped by 18 per cent, almost double the market average. Had Subaru sold just 17 more cars, Holden would have been pushed into tenth place. A new Trax is set to land locally in 2020 but other than this small SUV, the future product cupboard is looking fairly bare, at least in the short term.

General Motors future models - Cadillac 16 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

Stung by criticism that Cadillac wasn't offering the right luxury vehicles for shifting customer preferences in China and North America, GM has thrown much money at the division and infused it with fresh thinking. Suddenly, no-one can say there are too many big cars but too few SUVs. The CT4 and CT5 sedans will soon be rolling into showrooms, an elegant next generation Escalade is now just months away from being revealed, while the 2020s will bring an electric SUV and many other novelties.

Interior design and technology – VW Golf 13 Sep 2019

Column: Beecham's Tech-Talk

Although the VW Golf Mk 7 has been around for quite a while (appearing on our shores in 2012 and updated in 2016), its timeless progressive design has earned the status of Europe’s best-selling hatchback. While it may no longer dominate the C-segment class as it once did, the Golf is renowned for being a comfortable, practical and economical choice. As we await the Mk8, we slipped inside the current model for a closer look at this family favourite. VW has delayed the launch of the next Golf to ensure its ID.3 basks in the media limelight at the IAA this week.


Renegade Trailhawk - the torquetastic baby Jeep 12 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

In a segment where 4x4 drive is the exception to a front-wheel drive rule, the most rugged version yet of Jeep's smallest SUV is now on sale in Britain. Not only does it look the business, the Trailhawk has genuine off-roading ability.

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

The media preview days of the 2019 Frankfurt IAA brought a few surprises. Volkswagen (a camouflaged and altered I.D. Crozz which will be called ID.4), Hyundai (i30 N Project C), FAW (Hongqi S9 & E115 prototypes) and BMW (i Hydrogen Next, and the Concept 4: yes, the one with THAT grille) were among the OEMs showing unheralded vehicles.

General Motors future models - Buick 11 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

A relatively small brand in North America, Buick is a big deal in China, where 432,264 vehicles were sold in the first half of the year (compared to 107,240 in the USA). Which is why talk of GM phasing out Buick cars won’t happen, at least not in its number one market.

Steering system acquisitions open AD truck opportunities for Knorr-Bremse 10 Sep 2019

Column: Beecham's Tech-Talk

Braking system supplier, Knorr-Bremse entered the commercial vehicle steering market in 2016 when it acquired tedrive Steering Systems GmbH. Adding steering systems to its portfolio has given the supplier new opportunities to supply highly integrated systems for autonomous trucks. Earlier this year, Knorr-Bremse completed its acquisition of the commercial vehicle steering business of Hitachi Automotive Systems thereby creating a solid global basis for the subsequent introduction of torque overlay systems for automated driving (AD) functions. To learn more, we caught up with Dr Peter Laier, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG, responsible for the commercial vehicle steering division.


General Motors future models - GMC 9 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

For a long time, not even General Motors itself seemed to know just what GMC was meant to be other than an alternative to Chevrolet when it came to light trucks in North America and the Middle East. The brand has lately become more premium, more rugged and in many ways, GM's all-American answer to Jeep, albeit without the smaller vehicles.

ANALYSIS - HR3 Subaru Impreza 4 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

A Golf-sized hatchback with a standard CVT, 1.6-litre horizontally opposed petrol engine and four-wheel drive: it could only be an Impreza. The latest generation HR3 series model is an excellent car but with prices starting at more than GBP24,000, it's understandable why this Subaru is a rare vehicle in Britain.

Management briefing - 2019 Frankfurt motor show preview 3 Sep 2019

Column: Brooks On OEM Product Trends

There is no question about it, the ID.3 will be the main attraction of the 2019 edition of the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA). Volkswagen even delayed the next Golf to be certain of no other vehicle stealing the thunder of this EV. The Land Rover Defender will also be making headlines, as will the Porsche Taycan even though the latter is to be revealed on 4 September, almost a week ahead of the IAA's first press day.
