Based on the aforementioned A6, the A7 adds a hatchback, frameless windows and the suggestion of extra dollops of sportiness. Despite the large crowds that it drew in Paris, we're still not convinced that it's better looking than its sedan brother.
After giving the 4.2-litre V8 version of the A8 a thorough going-through and giving it a nine out of 10, we're fairly confident that the upcoming V6 petrol and diesel versions will more of the same, albeit with less equipment, cost and thirst.
A 250kW/450Nm 3-litre turbocharged six cylinder rockets the M Coupe towards to the horizon. For more sedate moments the iDrive system, 8.8-inch screen, fake suede trim and other goodies should keep you occupied.
If BMW forgot to pack leather seats, an entertainment system or, even, air conditioning into the new 6-Series we wouldn't mind, because the company's banished the hard-to-love looks for something more eye pleasing.
It's been a long wait, but the sporty version of the petite 500 will finally land down under — maybe. Boasting a turbocharged 1.4-litre engine, the 500 Abarth can reach a top speed in excess of 200km/h.
Part way through the year Ford will give its Falcon large sedan a mild facelift. Under its reworked nose Ford will fit a 2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, in addition to the current straight-six and V8 petrol engines.
Designed in Australia, built in Thailand and sold around the world, the new Ranger is set to take on the might of Toyota's Hilux ute. If its styling is too butch for you, there's also a slightly rounder Mazda version.
It probably won't be a technological wonderland, but that won't matter because the new Barina promises to be much better than the current model, which was an old school Daewoo Kalos with Holden badges stuck on it.
Australia hasn't made a small car since Toyota stopped producing Corollas locally. That's set to change in 2011, with the Cruze set to be made in Australia. Joining the sedan we already know will be a locally designed hatchback that made a quiet debut in Paris beside many a supercar.
Spy photos indicate that the next generation Civic will feature an evolution of the two-layer instrument cluster used on the current model (pictured above). As is the case, there will be a hybrid version too.
Honda makes two Accords: a supersized version targetted at the US and a smaller Euro version aimed at, erm, Europe. Hyundai will follow the same tactic with its US-focussed i45/Sonata and Euro-centric i40. And unlike the i45, the i40 will be available as a wagon.
The production version of the sporty concept car pictured above will debut in Detroit. Shame that the sportiest Hyundai of them all, the rear-wheel drive Genesis coupe, is only made in left-hand drive.
The new model boasts sleeker lines on the outside, higher quality trim on the inside and Jeep-worthy off-road ability. Fiat and Chyrsler hope that this combo will tempt buyers out of their BMW X5s and Merc MLs.
We know that Lamborghini's going to launch a replacement for its Murcielago supercar soon, but seeing as we don't have any photos of that car yet, here's the completely bonkers Sesto Elemento concept car from the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
Its attempt to add a bit of spice to the hybrid stew won't actually involve any adding any extra power to the drivetrain borrowed from the Toyota Prius. The company does promise sportier handling and a plumped up features list, though.
Available from the middle of 2011, the revised C-Class will offer a mildly updated exterior, a classier interior, even more tech goodies and a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine that's said to be 31 per cent more efficient.
The car that spawned a new breed of vehicle, the so-called four-door "coupe", has reached its second generation. It probably won't be available with the matte paint used on the car at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The car that made its name electrically transforming from a closed coupe to a open-air roadster adds another string to its bow. The new generation car (seen here undergoing testing and still wearing camoflague) will feature a glass roof — dubbed Magic Sky Control — that, with the touch of a button, can go from tinted to clear and back again.
In the past the Astra has worn Holden badges in Australia, but if industry rumours prove to be true, the German arm of General Motors is due to launch in Australia in 2011 to take on Volkswagen. We hope the financial case stacks up, because this means we might see this lovely three-door join its five-door hatch and wagon siblings down under.
To say that some recent Peugeots have been challenging on the eye is an understatement. The 508 aims to rectify that, but does it go too far to the point of being bland? When it debuted at the Paris Motor Show, it certainly didn't look as striking as it did in its publicity shots.
A front-wheel drive Range Rover would have been sacrilege not so long ago, but come next year it will be a reality in both three- and five-door forms; four-wheel drive is optional, by the by. Plenty of tech gear and a luxury interior should distract most from its more limited off-road ability.
Pricing and specification levels have yet to be announced, but the Yeti will be available in front-wheel drive form with a 1.2-litre petrol turbo and in four-wheel drive guise with a 2-litre turbo-diesel.
Sometimes we wonder why cars in Australia are so much more expensive than, say, the USA. There are many reasons for this, but just be thankful that we'll be paying more for the new Jetta than our American counterparts. In America, you see, the new Jetta is bargain priced, but features a cheaper rear suspension setup and an interior that's full of hard plastic surfaces. The Jetta we'll receive will thankfully be fitted with the same plush interior that we're used to from VW.
Such is the family resemblance, at the 2010 Paris Motor Show we initially mistook the new Passat for the latest Jetta. Despite looking all new, the latest Passat actually shares much of its mechanicals with the outgoing model, as well as the doors and interior.
Joining the just launched S60 sedan, Volvo's stylish new V60 wagon melds style with versatility and, of course, a plethora of the car maker's signature safety features, including a system that can automatically avoid pedestrian collisions.
