I'm a RenaultSport fan and have been for years so the Alpine really flicks my switch.

Still as ugly as the last one to be honest. I'm sure they're good to drive but the way they look does nothing for me.

Why does it look like the steering wheel is on updside down!?

Great replies so thank you both.

Looks like I'll just go with the Dr Leather spray and keep them nice and clean. I'll look into some type or protectant as well. The car has a leather dash and door...

Yeah i agree who's going to pay for it in reality. The GLA isn't exactly a looker either.

Although it would be a GLA45, basically same 2.0 turbo lump the A45 has. :thumb:

Either way it's...

Yep, I agree. Jaguar have gone from being a brand that's deliberately trying to be 'awfully British don't you know' to being modern, great looking machines. Plus a big slab of performance as well....

I like the performance, that's a respectable and very useable amount of power. Also think the interior looks really good.

Perhaps on a solid read or white the black would contrast but a nice classy bright silver against that metallic red looks just right.

It's a no from me but mainly as I'm bored of the sight of SUVs. Ok, so it maybe a bit better looking than some other more bland examples.

The only SUV I would say is slightly passable is the Macan...
