Fresh off winning the International Pick-Up Award for 2018, the Volkswagen Amarok has been awarded another trophy, this time Pick-Up of the Year 2019 by United Kingdom monthly automobile magazine and website WhatCar?
Giving the vehicle a five-star rating, WhatCar? described the Volkswagen Amarok as a “brilliant pick-up that is great to drive and practical, with a well-built and comfortable interior”.
CAN a car be more than one thing? In the case of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne, it is. This sport utility vehicle (SUV) has plenty of sport, a lot of utility, and is one hell of a vehicle.
In three generations, the Cayenne has gone from ugly duckling to the belle of the ball, so much so that the other Porsche models are wearing its design language. It claims the swoopy curves and forward styling of its heritage. Around back, the rear lights form a single, thin, light strip that sweeps completely across the bodywork topped off by a 3D Porsche logo — a signature, now standard, on all current Porsches. On the high-gloss, black 21-inch Porsche Exclusive wheels, the Cayenne gains an aggressive performance stance.
It was another successful milestone for Audi at their Oxford Road showroom in Kingston with the launch of the 2019 Q3 subcompact sport utility vehicle last Friday, as all their order books sold out.
“We could not have imagined what we got tonight. In its best year we sold three to four Q3s a month. When the new Q3 was coming we ordered 20, thinking we’d have three or four months stock, and then what happened is that all 20 were sold out. We ordered another 10, those 10 are sold out. And we ordered another 10 and that’s the 10 we’re taking deposits for tonight. I’m not sure there are any left, as of this point we might be taking orders for cars that haven’t yet been built,” Damien Kerr, head of business Audi Jamaica, told the Jamaica Observer’s weekly Auto magazine.
As to why the 2019 Audi Q3 became a hot property, Kerr was clear.
