New cars on sale in Australia: June and July 2017

The next two months will see an eclectic mix of new models and facelifts rolling into Australian showrooms including a couple of highly anticipated vehicles.

Australian buyers will be spoilt for choice over the next eight weeks with a diverse mix of new cars arriving in local showrooms in June, ranging from new-generation performance models to the latest in SUVs.

Heading the European arrivals is the second-generation Audi TT RS coupe and roadster and Audi RS3 sedan, which will be joined on the long boat trip by the brutish Mercedes-AMG E63 S and its more sedate stablemates the E-Class Coupe and E-Class All Terrain wagon.


Not so far to travel but equally as exciting is the Lexus LC, the Japanese luxury brand’s rear drive coupe which will be offered with a 5.0-litre V8 or 3.5-litre V6/electric hybrid.


Among the more conventional cars there are few facelifts and some all-new offerings including the newly minted Skoda Kodiaq seven-seat SUV, fifth-generation Honda CR-V, Holden Astra sedan, Subaru XV and Suzuki Swift.

Audi TT RS
Apart from an inevitable ‘Plus’ version further down the track, this second-gen Audi TT RS will likely be the most powerful car to use the Volkswagen Group’s transverse-engined MQB architecture. It’s 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo sends 294kW and 490Nm to all four corners, thrusting the dual clutch automatic coupe from 0-100km/h in a rapid 3.7 seconds.
