With Opel's entire lineup moving to PSA platforms, Opel has much more freedom to pursue sales in non-European markets. "Opel will go global, finally," CEO Michael Lohscheller said here on Thursday while presenting the so-called PACE restructuring plan.
It isn’t the most sophisticated small SUV going and its interior feels rather cheap in places, but the Suzuki SX-4 S-Cross is still decent enough to drive and spacious enough for most families. It’s great value, too, with lots of low-mileage examples going very cheaply, and it comes with plenty of equipment.

Burns said that the company is hoping for its first manned flight of the vehicle toward the end of the year or the first week of January and hinted that there may be a first public demo at the 2018 CES technology show in early January.

Even if you don’t want the extra cost of winter tyres, checking the tread depth of your existing tyres is important. The legal limit is 1.6mm, but having more than this can dramatically improve steering and braking - if your tyres are due replacing, then winter is a good time to do it. Also check your tyre pressures regularly, as these can change with the drop in air temperature with the changing of the seasons.
