My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Ssangyong unveils two special Edition Turismo models, the Black and White Editions.
Black and White special edition Turismo announced
Distinctive metallic Space Black or Grand White exterior
New dark grey interior and new style seating
2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel power, automatic transmission and 4x4
Available from just £26,250
Offering family and business users a car to transport seven adults in comfort together with their luggage, the SsangYong Turismo is almost without rival.
Now this capacious seven-seater is available as two stylish limited editions - Black or White, and as well as having a distinctive metallic Space Black or Grand White exterior, includes a smart new dark grey interior complete with new style seating. Other special features include a heated steering wheel, Kenwood DAB radio and sat nav.
Based on the top-of-the-range Turismo ELX with selectable four-wheel drive, these new special editions come with a premium specification that includes a 7-speed Mercedes-Benz automatic transmission, cruise control, parking sensors, rear seating privacy glass, 17” diamond cut alloy wheels, roof rails, heated front seats, rain sensing wipers and automatic headlights. These limited edition models are available from just £26,250.
At over 5 metres long and with a 3-metre wheelbase, Turismo is larger than a standard sized MPV people carrier, and features an upgraded 2.2 litre Euro 6 diesel engine.
Thanks to its 3,000mm wheelbase, the Turismo provides a huge interior space where seven adults can travel in supreme comfort with their luggage loaded in the back, and without having to compromise on passenger accommodation. There are three rows of seats as well as the large load space which can be further increased by removing the third row completely. This gives a massive load carrying capability of between 875 litres with seven adults seated, through to two adults and 3,146 litres of load space.
With its selectable 4x4 with low ratio, this Turismo special edition is a car you can rely on, no matter what the winter throws at you and is especially safe and practical whether towing a caravan, horsebox or boat trailer, or when driving on snow and ice, and has an impressive 2 tonne towing capacity.
The new Turismo utilises double wishbone front suspension and rear independent multi-link suspension for executive saloon style ride quality. This set-up offers a quiet and comfortable driving environment with firm body control, a flat ride and optimum stability regardless of the road conditions.
5-year limitless mileage warranty
All models in the SsangYong range are covered by a best-in-class 5-year limitless mileage warranty. Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, ‘limitless’ means just that: not a maximum mileage condition that some brands impose in their small print. All the major mechanical components are covered including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials which could have their life reduced by poor driving are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
