ProNovate’s Favourite Picks at the Moment
At ProNovate we’re passionate about cars, and always enjoy the opportunity to talk about various cars with our clients.
It’s no surprise that we love super cars such as Ferrari and Bugatti, and exotic cars such as Bentley and Rolls Royce. This month however we thought we’d tip our hats to the everyday heroes and explore what some of the employees favourites are at ProNovate.
Tesla Model 3
While it’s not yet available, we’re excited to see Tesla launch the new Model 3. With over 200,000 cars already preordered in 1 week it looks like it will be their most adventurous build to date. Priced to be from about 60-70k AUS we are looking forward to seeing more sustainable energy efficient cars on the road that are within a reasonable price range. Seating for 5 adults, 0 to 100km/h in 6 seconds and 5-star safety. Not to mention the autopilot safety features!
One of the most sold vehicles in Australia, the Mazda 3 boasts reliability, style, fuel economy, safety and practicality, it suits all basic needs for most drivers. It’s also incredibly comfortable for long drives, has masses of luggage space in ether sedan or hatch form and comes with plenty of equipment too. With a strong reputation for reliability, it also doesn’t lose out on style either.
Subaru Forester XT
A real jack of all trades, the Forester ticks so many boxes. With sporty performance, off road capability, space for a small family and 5-star safety, it’s also very affordable. Sharing the same engine as the mighty WRX, the forester suits urban and country driving, and is perfect in any weather conditions. With such a strong resale, we would recommend the Forester XT to anyone looking for a small SUV.
An Australian icon, the HSV GTS is one of our favorites for flying the flag of the Aussie muscle car, putting Corvette running gear into a family sedan. What’s better yet is that the new GEN-F2 model GTS will contain even more aggression with the inclusion of a supercharger which results in a 400kW engine, and can travel 0-100km/h in just 4.6 seconds. Styling enhancements we love include a modified bodykit of front and rear bumpers and re-designed side skirts, blackened hood vents and new 20″ alloys.
Our list of favourites wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t include the new 2 seater roadster Mazda MX-5, for bucking the trend and being lighter than the model it replaces.
It’s little wonder that Mazda says the all-new, fourth-generation of MX-5 owes more to the first than the last, with a ‘back to basics’ approach to its roadster formula, which sees the new car shed up to 91kg over the outgoing model. And at $31,990 plus on roads for the entry level 1.5i, Mazda have done a fabulous job at repositioning the MX-5 in the market and we believe would be a good alternative to the Toyota 86 coupe.
With over a million sales since the MX-5 was born in 1989, and continued improvements in development ever since, it’s no wonder why this car is still so desirable and is one if our favourites.
