November see’s the release of new models from the likes of BMW, VW and Jaguar. Hyundai and Citroen are also releasing new models as the market looks ahead to 2018.
The BMW X3 is the newest vehicle from the German car giants after being originally released in 2003 as the smaller sister of the X5. The storage space has been rethought and more driver assistance systems including a radar- and camera-based active lane keeping/cruise control that amounts to limited autonomous driving.
Next up is the new C3 Air Cross from French manufacturers Citroen. As with its hatchback brother, the C3 prioritises comfort and space for both driver and passenger. It includes cruise control and lane departure warning (standard on the base model), active safety braking, active headlamp high beam and a head-up display, all novel for the class. It can self-park, too.
The next new release in November is the Hyundai i30N. This is the first vehicle to be released under its new N brand. Ex-BMW M Division right-hand man Albert Biermann in charge of bringing the i30N to production.The i30N also allows the driver to select numerous different driving modes; Eco, Comfort, Sport and N – while an N Custom mode allows you to tweak the various maps to your personal preferences.
With the Performance Pack pushing out around 276bhp and 295lb ft of torque – it makes for a desirable choice for those looking to tap into the hot-hatch market.
Jaguar are next to release a new model in November.
The XJR 575 is based on the outgoing 542bhp XJR and boasts a fine supercharged V8 engine, boasting a 0-60 in an impressive 4.2 seconds.The new model now has LED headlights as standard, a unique new double ‘J-Blade’ daytime running lights, as well as special badging and gloss black details. Plus there’s a range of new colour options that include the striking Velocity Blue.The interior included a 10-inch InControl Touch Pro touchscreen with full-screen navigation adds to that. All cars get a digital TV, DAB radio and an 825W Meridian stereo as standard.
Our final new release in November for the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace. The new model is more spacious than the first, customers can choose an Allspace with the same five-seat layout as the standard Tiguan, or opt for the ‘5+2’ option – that is, five seats plus two fold-away seats in the back.Engine options for the Allspace broadly mirror those of its smaller sibling, with the 2.0-litre TDI diesels likely to be the most popular choice and a powerful, twin-turbocharged BiTDI topping the range.
As with the standard Tiguan, the best blend of performance and economy comes from the 148bhp 2.0-litre TDI.There’s plenty to like about the Allspace’s interior. The quality of materials used is great, everything is well made and there’s a sense of solidity that’s absent in some rivals. Spend a bit more money on the SEL trim and you’ll be greeted by an interior that isn’t too far off the Audi Q5 quality, luxury and refinement.
