S motor shows go this year’s spectacular at Frankfurt is a blockbuster – and British brands are at the fore. Stunning designs from Jaguar, Land Rover and MINI prove that fun is back in motoring in a big way. The drive towards low emissions may still dominate but the next generation of cars is going to be something special. Jaguar’s sensational C-X16 ‘production ready concept’ two-seater is a perfect example. The spiritual successor to the E-Type and described by design chief Ian Callum as Jaguar at its purist, is a high performance lightweight aluminium sports car with a hybrid petrol-electric powertrain. It has a top speed of 185mph but its CO2 output is no more than a family saloon with its 380ps three-litre V6 engine backed up by an electric motor allowing an extra 95ps to be on tap, The result is breathtaking looks and breathtaking acceleration of 0 to 60mph in around four seconds. Just as special is Land Rover’s DC100 Sport – one of two concepts tipped to replace the stalwart Defender – the ultimate 4x4. An open top three-seater with a central instrument display – just like the original Land Rover of 1948 – it is a car with ‘surfer dude’ stamped all over and well and truly aimed at the leisure market. Its sister DC100 model is the heavy duty version which will follow Land Rover’s true go anywhere heritage. Both could be in production by 2015 helping to secure the future of thousands of jobs at Land Rover’s factories in the Midlands and on Merseyside. Equally important to the British economy is MINI which was showing its new Coupe at Frankfurt only weeks before the rakish looking car is due on sale. With its steeply sloped roof the Coupe is the latest take on the classic MINI design which has recently spawned the all-wheel-drive Countryman to continue the brand’s success across the globe from its headquarters in Cowley, Oxford. Other newcomers which will be built in Britain included Honda’s latest Civic and a new Toyota Avensis. The Civic, to be built at Swindon, looks more an evolution of the current model but its underpinnings are all

BEST OF BRITISH: The new Land Rover DC100 Sport concept

Best of British is putting Germans in the shade new promising to deliver an improved ride and handling while its engines have been cleaned up to cut CO2 output to as low as 110g/km. Meanwhile the new Avensis, in family-sized saloon and estate shapes, is a bold step forward for Toyota and features the company’s latest angular face recently seen on the new Yaris hatchback. The Avensis will be built alongside the Auris hatch at Toyota’s Burnaston factory in

Derby. UK brands were also evident at the more exotic end of the market with Aston Martin revealing its amazing V12 Zagato supercar and Bentley showing off the sensuous new Continental GTC convertible. Bentley’s parent company, Volkswagen was out to impress its home crowd with a new city car strangely called the up! while Audi – another part of the VW group was showing its little A2 concept electric model. BMW was also getting in on the

alternative fuel act with its latest i3 and i8 models demonstrating the brand’s shift into the battery powered and plug-in hybrid markets. The final big hitter from Germany, Mercedes, which this year is celebrating the 125th anniversary of moment it developed the first automobile, gave world premieres to a roadster version of the SLS supercar, the first diesel engined SLK and had the all-new B-Class medium sized people mover – on

sale in Britain early next year - as the centrepiece of its display. Other new models which are likely to become favourites with British buyers included hot ST versions of Ford’s Focus estate and Fiesta, a new Zafira MPV from Vauxhall and the world’s first diesel hybrid – a four wheel drive version of the award winning Peugeot 3008 crossover model which is said to be capable of averaging almost 75 to the gallon with tax free emissions of 99g/km.

It’s the return of the ST by MIKE TORPEY

T

HE wraps have been lifted on the production version of Ford’s stylish new Focus ST five-door – revealing the model performance car enthusiasts have been waiting for. And for British and European fans of the Blue Oval badge there will be an equally high powered estate ST Wagon model launched alongside the hatchback next year. The new generation Focus ST will be more powerful, more fuel efficient and, says Ford, will raise the bar once again when it comes to handling. A result of the combined efforts of Ford Team RS in Europe and the Special Vehicles team in the United States, this is also Ford’s first global performance car – to be made available in 40 countries with only minimal changes, due to regional legislation. Performance comes from a turbocharged four-cylinder 2.0-litre Ford EcoBoost engine, providing 250PS of power and 360Nm of torque, while CO2 emissions and fuel consumption are cut by more than 20 per cent compared to the previous-generation ST. And the powerplant is mated to a six-speed manual transmission

Ford unveils sportiest version of latest Focus

with specially revised gearing to produce the maximum punch from each throw of the gearstick. The ST also looks predictably eye-catching, from Ford’s signature mesh grille at the front, through the sculpted side skirts, rear bumper with diffuser-style vents and roof spoiler on both models. Tangerine Scream is the new signature production colour, while there will also be paint jobs available in Performance Blue, Race Red and White. Ford says it found the lure of creating an ST estate model irresistible. “We know many European buyers favour the carrying capacity

WORTH WAITING FOR: The ST version of the latest Focus is on its way of a wagon, but still want the driving excitement and performance a five-door can offer,” said ST chief programme engineer Matthias Tonn. “With such a stylish wagon in the new Focus range, we had the ideal basis on which to create a unique

niche model for these customers – and it will be just as exciting to drive as the five-door.” Three trim options, ST1, ST2 and ST3, will be available, the standard grade including features like cloth Recaro seats, keyless start, front

Nissan Juke 1.6 DIG-T Acenta Premium

Nissan’s Juke box glor y

JOKER IN THE PACK: The Nissan Juke is a blend of SUV and sports car

I

T’S rare these days for a compact car to come along with a design that blows everything else out of the water. That’s the case though with the British-built Nissan Juke, a real joker in the pack when it comes to the expanding crossover scene. This baby brother to the top selling Qashqai has just completed its first year of sale, finding a fraction short of 15,000 homes – a figure that while far from unacceptable, nonetheless ensures a degree of exclusivity. In a way that’s a shame because on looks alone you would have thought this Tonka toy of a car would have people queuing round the block to lay their mitts on one. Nissan’s own description of the Juke is literally a car of two halves the lower part is pure SUV with chunky wheels, wide tyres, extended ground clearance and a robust stance.

TEST

with MIKE TORPEY

But the top half is unadulterated sports car with a high waistline, slim visor-like side glass graphics and a coupe-style falling roof line. And the coupe effect is underpinned by rear doors which have their handles hidden in the frame of the door, not a new innovation but definitely an effective one. Inside, the eye-catcher is a motorcycle fuel tank-inspired centre console with high gloss piano black finish, while the instruments are clustered under a cowl behind the steering wheel.

Info from Nissan Liverpool, Sefton Street, L8 6PZ. Tel: 0151 552 8000.

Given that this is a compact car there’s no shortage a space for five, including a refreshingly comfortable rear centre seating position, with ample headroom all round. In fact the only area in which the Juke could do better is with regard to boot space, though what you do get is split level with some hidden storage opportunities. Out on the road, the Nissan certainly delivers and while the normally aspirated 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5 dCi diesel engines perform adequately, the 1.6 direct injection turbo petrol unit in the tested model is a cracker. Trim levels are the familiar Visia, Acenta and Tekna grades, the latter pair featuring a dynamic control set-up which alters the car’s throttle and suspension settings to accommodate normal, sports or eco modes and changes the visual display colour from red to blue

Kia Picanto lands Northern Car of the Year award THE Kia Picanto has scooped its first major award by being named Northern Car of the Year by the Northern Group of Motoring Writers. And in an unprecedented one-two the Korean company’s Sportage sports utility vehicle took second spot behind its city

car stablemate. The Ford Focus finished third. Kia has been the only manufacturer to have figured in every top 10 short-list in the life of the awards and the only one to have two nominations in the same year, on three separate occasions.

Presenting the award of an original miner's lamp, group vice chairman Derrick Grocock said: “Picanto was a clear winner thanks to its looks, quality and excellent packaging which makes it such a perfect city car.” The new Picanto went on sale at the start of June with a choice

5 4 4 4 5

of 1.0 and 1.25 petrol engines and a starting price of £7,795 for the three-door and £7,995 for five door models. Kia’s UK chief Michael Cole added: “We are delighted to get this award from such a well-known group of fair-minded and practical journalists.”
