New car diary for October 2013

Make: BMW

Model: 4 Series

Released: Oct 2013

BMW will differentiate its 3 Series Coupe and Convertible models from its sedan and wagon siblings by changing the name to 4 Series when the new model launches in Australia in mid 2013. This will bring it into line with the 5 Series/6 Series nomenclature. The hi-po M4 variant is not expected to reach local showrooms until 2014.

Make: Peugeot

Model: 2008

Released: Oct 2013

French carmaker Peugeot will join the growing sub-compact SUV segment with the 2008 in late 2013 going head-to-head with the Holden Trax, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Juke. Based on the 208 light car, the 2008 will be powered by a turbocharged three-cylinder 1.2-litre engine with the possibility of a diesel down the track.

Make: Fiat

Model: Panda

Released: Oct 2013

Fiat's quirky Panda light hatch goes on sale in Australia this year, adding to the Italian car-maker's expanding local line-up. A 1.2-litre four cylinder engine has been confirmed but there is a chance the Panda will get the option of Fiat's two-cylinder TwinAir turbo unit. The tiny Panda's interior is dominated by Fiat's 'squircle' shapes, making for a unique cabin experience.

Make: Mercedes-Benz

Model: CLA

Released: Oct 2013

Mercedes will fill another niche in mid-2013, this time with the CLA small sedan. The CLA is based on the same platform used for both the latest B-Class and forthcoming A-class, and its sleek coupe-like styling gives it a mini-CLS feel. Mercedes-Benz hopes to price the CLA from around $50,000 when it arrives.

Make: Kia

Model: Koup

Released: Oct 2013

Kia’s second-gen Koup is confirmed for a local berth at the end of 2013, just months ahead of the Pro_Cee’d GT hot-hatch. Kia promises a sportier Koup this time around, addressing concerns that the original version didn’t have the go to match its looks. Kia Australia will add a turbo version for extra performance.
