MINI COUNTRYMAN LAUNCHES
MINI is launching its MINI Countryman on 18 September. With ALL4 four wheel drive available, the crossover car offers extra space inside, has 350 litres of boot space and a higher seating position for occupants. So it’s a less mini and more maxi version of the MINI – it's also the car with which the brand will return to the World Rally Championships.

LUXE NEW HATCHBACK FROM CITROEN
This is Citroën’s DS4, a new luxury family hatchback for people that think a regular Citroën is just not posh enough. The car is the second in the DS line up (are two cars a line-up?), the first being the existing DS3. The DS4 will be customisable like the DS3 and will have LED running lights and a premium interior with lots of chrome.

LAMBO’S NEW SUPERCAR
Look at this. This is the new Lamborghini super car that will be launched at the Paris Motor Show at the end of the month. It’s a teaser shot for the car – we don't know what car it is either – but by the looks of it it’s constructed from carbon fibre. A new low-weight, fuel-efficient super car would certainly justify the boast that the car will show the way “to the future of super sports cars”.
