Welcome to the 888 Auto Central blog where we’ll be bringing you a regularly updated mix of automotive entertainment and practical information, filtered through our expert analysis and delivered in our usual unbiased manner. We’ll get off to a flying start by introducing two newcomers to the Australian market:
- 2016 Audi A4 Sedan
- 2016 Mercedes-Benz C Class Coupe
Audi’s recently released 2016 A4 Sedan features a combination of new looks, new engines and new technology that Audi themselves describe as “a quantum leap forward in the fields of technology, quality and materials and driving dynamics”, giving consumers access to “the most technologically-advanced Audi ever to go on sale in Australia”. From simple things like an upgraded ‘voice control system’ better able to understand simple phrases and new adaptive LED headlights automatically adjusting to changing driving conditions, through the impressive MMI navigation and infotainment system with options including DAB+ Digital Radio and Bang & Olufsen speakers, to the improved engines, lightweight suspension and new power-steering system, Audi have a range of options and packages to pique the interest of any car buyer.
Mercedes C Class is a byword for class-leading style and performance and the new 2016 variants are shaping-up to be worthy successors of that mantle. This new generation of C Class aims to be more sporty than its predecessors, offering a wider range of standard 2.0 litre turbo petrol and 2.1 litre turbo diesel engines, plus the option of a mighty 4.0 litre twin turbo petrol V8 producing 375kW (over 500hp) and 700Nm of torque; these are linked to a choice of 6-, 7- and 9-speed gearboxes. With greater internal space and lower kerbside weight, the new C Class Coupe includes panoramic sliding roof and soft-top options.
Of course, it’s that time of year when many manufacturers are offering great deals on their 2015 runouts.
