The Volvo XC60 has received good to very good reviews from the UK media and has won many awards since it was launched, including the 2018 World Car of the Year.

Citroën C3 Aircross

The Citroën C3 Aircross has received modest reviews from the UK media, with praise for its versatility and individuality but criticism for a lack of refinement.

Renault Megane RS

The Renault Megane RS has received very good scores from the UK media, with the top-spec 300hp models generally receiving better ratings than the 280hp model.

Audi has introduced a V10 specification to its R8 Spyder range. The naturally aspirated V10 produces 610hp and a maximum torque of 560Nm, resulting in a 0-62mph time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 203mph.

The V10 model is already available in the R8 coupé, but until now has not been available in the R8 Spyder. As well as a power boost over the ‘regular’ R8 V10 Spyder, the V10 model gets more carbon fibre in its chassis to reduce weight by 25kg.

Audi offers 11 regular paint finishes, although it is possible to request a bespoke colour if you can’t find your ideal shade from the regular palette. The soft top is available in three colours and the side blades in five. 19-inch alloy wheels are as standard; 20-inch are optional. An optional micrommata package includes a unique green paint finish, grey detailing and a black interior with green contrast stitching.

Inside, sports bucket seats are as standard, along with carbon fibre trim detailing and a 12.3-inch virtual cockpit instead of regular dials.

   

Audi’s MMI Touch infotainment and navigation system is standard and features a wi-fi hotspot for passengers. An optional online module provides fast internet access via LTE and the ability to navigate via Google Earth and Google Street View.

Audi opens order books for the R8 Spyder V10 convertible later this month, with UK pricing starting from £147,470 on-road.
