The Mercury Cars Guide : November 21st 2009
Saturday, November 21, 2009 Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au ---3 is an important factor GLOBAL DESIGN: The Holden Cruze brings a nice modern feel. SHINING: The VW Golf is a star in Europe and is making waves Down Under. HOLDEN CRUZE (Price: from $20,990 Engine: 2-litre turbodiesel Output: 110kW/ 4000 revs, 320Nm/2000 revs, 6.8L/100km, 180g/km) The new Holden compact comes from Korea but is a global design that is much more modern and impressive than the dowdy Epica or the good-value Captiva SUV. It is headed into production in Adelaide in 2010, when it will also become a hatchback with more local tweaking by Holden to ensure its place on the market . MAZDA3 (Price: from $21,990 Engine: 2-litre four, twin-overhead camshafts Output: 108kW/6500 revs, 182Nm/4500 revs, 8.2L/100km, 193g/km) The smiley-faced new 3 takes over from one of the most impressive small cars to hit Australia in a decade. The Mazda3 has driven Mazda's incredible showroom success over the past two years and, although the new model is really a giant facelift, it ticks all the right boxes. SUBARU LIBERTY (Price: from $33,990 Engine: 2.5-litre flat four Output: 123kW/ 5600 revs, 229Nm/4000 revs, 8.4L/100km, 198g/km) Styled to make an impact in the USA, where the previous Liberty was dismissed as too small and soft, the new model is bigger and more impressive in almost every area. It also has Subaru's signature all-wheel drive and five-star ANCAP safety. An automatic pick for the COTY contest. VOLKSWAGEN GOLF (Price: from $25,990 Engine: 1.4-litre four with supercharger and turbocharger Output: 118kW/5900 revs, 240Nm/1750-4500 revs, 6.2L/100km, 144g/km) The new European star is doing big things in Australia off the back of impressive quality, comfort and driving enjoyment. There is a big variety of engine and trim choices, but the star is the 1.4-litre twincharge with DSG gearbox. The Golf is pricey, but has a lot of strengths.
