Jaguar XF

Jaguar has expanded the XE look for its newgeneration XF executive sedan, and has worked hard on polishing its dynamics to give the German luxury establishment a shake-up. It rides on a slightly stretched wheelbase, but is shorter than the eight-year-old car it nudges out of the showroom. JLRs all-new 2.0-litre Ingenium turbo-diesel four debuts under XFs bonnet, bringing increased performance and much greater refinement than the old 2.2D.

Hyundai Elantra

Set to launch in late-February, the sixth-gen Elantra boasts an evolutionary look built around a deeper version of Hyundais nowsignature hexagonal grille, riding on a fresh platform destined for the next i30. Suspension and steering will be tuned to Aussie tastes, and sources claim will involve two set-ups a torsion-beam rear for the 2.0-litre MPi petrol, and multi-link IRS for a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol variant, allowing greater scope to achieve proper sporting dynamics. The 1.6T is likely to wear an SR badge and is due third quarter.
