Make: Volkswagen

Model: Golf - BlueMotion

Released: May 2011

Volkswagen has had a change of heart and decided that the Golf BlueMotion will now be coming to Australia. It promises to be the most economical vehicle of its size in Australia, edging out the latest Toyota Prius in the combined fuel consumption average stakes by the smallest of margins – 3.8L/100km against the petrol-electric hybrid’s 3.9L/100km figure.

Top-selling mid-sized sedan and wagon will feature new driver assistance systems, including an undated telematics platform with internet access. New engines with idle-stop technology and an improved 7G Automatic transmission will improve fuel consumption by up to 31 percent. There will also be subtle styling changes and a newly-designed interior. Arrival is scheduled for mid-2011.

Make: Bentley

Model: Continental - GT

Released: May 2011

Retaining its familiar silhouette, the revised GT will be wider and some body panels will be created in one piece of aluminium using a high-tech 'super-forming' process that eliminate seams and welding.

Expect more power and torque from the big 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 plus an all-new 4.0-litre V8 to join the range later.

Make: Maserati

Model: GranTurismo - MC Stradale

Released: May 2011

The racetrack-ready GranTurismo MC Stradale will be more expensive than the $318,500 GranTurismo S coupe upon which it is based. Lighter in weight and offering a more powerful 336kW version of the 4.7-litre Ferrari-derived V8 that powers the standard GranTurismo, the MC is likely to complete the 0-100km/h sprint in 4.5 seconds, easily making it the quickest Maserati production car.
