All new cars on sale January and February 2018

2018 has gotten off to a scorching start with some hot new metal arriving this February, and some already available as of last month.

Below is a list of all new cars arriving to market by the end of this month, and we'll shine a spotlight on a couple of standouts.

Holden ZB Commodore/Calais - Arriving: February

Hitting Holden showrooms late in February, the German-built ZB Commodore and Calais range will attempt to offer something for everyone (besides a V8 engine...).

Starting at $33,690 for the Commodore LT 2.0-litre front-drive ‘liftback’ and stretching to $56K for the V6 AWD Commodore VXR (also a ‘liftback’ sedan), if you include front-drive 2.0-litre turbo-diesel variants (base LT liftback and Sportwagon, and Calais liftback), the range will span 15 different models, including two high-riding Calais Tourer AWD wagon variants.

Suzuki Swift Sport - Arriving: February

Based on the excellent new-gen Swift hatchback, the feisty Sport version will inherit Suzuki’s syrupy 1.4-litre ‘Boosterjet’ turbo-petrol four that also stars (in auto-only form) in the Vitara and S-Cross.

The new Swift Sport, however, will cover all bases thanks to both six-speed manual and, for the first time in Sport guise, six-speed auto availability.

Packing 103kW/230Nm into a lithe 970kg body, the Sport promises a spicy driving experience, garnished with winged-back front buckets, a perforated-leather rim with red stitching for the superb steering wheel, and a newfound level of sophistication.
