Ford's decision to shut up shop in Australia at the end of 2016 has brought a premature end to the Falcon GT. Here we take a final spin in one of the great Aussie icons.

Jaguar F-Type R Coupe
The F-Type R Coupe is what Jaguar describes as its most focused and dynamic car to date. And after some fine time with this feral feline, we have to agree.

Nissan Navara
Nissan will soon launch a new ute into the market and Navara will relinquish its crown as the most powerful in the class. But after sampling it in Thailand, we feel it’s a better, more sophisticated truck that’s still tough enough.

Also in this issue
We have first drives of BMW’s new 2 Series Active Tourer, a versatile front-driver that takes the firm into new territory, and the Maserati Ghibli, another car which charts a new direction for its maker. We take a quick tour of the West Coast in BMW’s new X4, and compare the Corolla sedan with a Korean rival in the form of the Kia Cerato. We’ve had more time in the Honda Jazz, Jeep Cherokee, Porsche Macan Diesel, the entry-level X5 with its stunning four-cylinder diesel and the revised Peugeot 3008. We also take a look at the inner workings of the Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds, and ride the exotic 200-horsepower MV Agusta F4 1000 RR. We also throw a leg over the more laid-back Triumph Speedmaster cruiser.

All this plus the usual news and views in the September issue of NZ Autocar magazine on sale August 21.
