The new 7th generation Astra, built at Ellesmere Port in the UK, is lighter in weight, roomier and more compact than its predecessor and is supplied with a series of all new, lightweight, more efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Available in the UK from late August 2015, the all new MX-5 Convertible is lighter, shorter and lower than its predecessor and is the most compact MX-5 ever produced. This allows for increased performance whilst enabling improved economy and emissions. Rear wheel drive gives a 50:50 weight distribution and agile handling.
All new, lighter and stiffer XF, by virtue of an aluminium-intensive body structure. The new XF is shorter (-7mm to 4954mm) with a 51mm longer wheelbase (2960mm) but is as much as 190kg lighter due to the intensive use of aluminium and UHSS (Ultra High Strength Steel).
The all new Ford Mustang will be available to buy in the UK, with right-hand drive, for the first time in its 50 year history. Available in Soft Top Convertible or Fastback Coupe body styles and with a choice of 2.3 EcoBoost or 5.0 V8 petrol engines, all UK models come with a 6 speed manual gearbox as standard.
