One thing that was missing when Volkswagen revealed the 2017 Golf range was the new Golf R, but we finally got to see what it looks like in these stunning press images. The new Golf R now has a power output of 310PS (up from 300PS) making it the most powerful Golf model ever. This increase in power means that the new Golf R can hit 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds (a 0.3 second improvement from the previous generation).

Now that the new 2017 Golf range is available, the question on everyone’s lips is What colour should I get? That’s where we come in with this handy colour guide showing all the standard colours as well as every colour you can pay to get on your new model car.
This is the first place you should start if you’re thinking about upgrading to one of the new Golf models.
As anticipation for the Audi RS3 Saloon is ramping up after a Paris Motor Show reveal last year, the carmaker sprung a surprise with the announcement of a new Audi RS3 Sportback. Due to be fully unveiled at Geneva Motor Show next week, the new model adds 33bhp bringing the 2017 model to 394bhp. This lets the hot hatch hit 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds thanks to the 2.5-litre five-cylinder TFSI engine. Just like it’s Saloon sibling, which is still unavailable to order, this model will be driven by a seven-speed dual-clutch S-tronic transmission with Quattro technology.
Volkswagen’s head honcho, Herbert Diess, has said that Tesla’s enormous amount of autonomous driving data gives it a competitive advantage in the self-driving future of cars.
Tesla’s entire range of cars now ship with self-driving technology installed, and whether you choose to pay extra to unlock the features or not, the cars are still collecting data constantly. The vast amount of data (more than 750,000,000 miles worth) is already coming in for Tesla while other carmakers are working hard on bringing their first automated cars to production by 2020.
We take a look around the new Volkswagen Amarok with mighty V6 engine. It’s not just the engine that gets an upgrade in the Amarok V6, the facelift model also brings new cabin technology in the form of a touchscreen infotainment system along with the refreshed exterior design. This serves to modernise the vehicle while still ensuring that it is powerful enough to handle the most challenging of tasks.
The new Volkswagen Amarok is available to order now from Stable Vehicle Contracts. This model replaces the previous 2.0-litre TDI engine with the powerful 3.0-litre V6 engine.
Hot on the heels of the second-gen Q5 unveiling at Paris Motor Show 2016, Audi have taken the wraps off a refreshed SQ5 with the S5’s turbocharged V6 petrol engine.
The engine on the Audi SQ5 will offer 354bhp with a 0-62mph sprint of just 5.4 seconds. Instead of using a diesel engine like in the previous SQ5 and the SQ7, Audi have opted for the petrol V6 engine to power their sporty SUV with the possibility of a diesel engine returning later in the year.
