GR Corolla Ready To Rock 'n' Rolla

GR Corolla Ready To Rock 'n' Rolla

Cruise Control returns this week previewing two new BMWs in our local market, peep at Volkswagen's new GTi logo while we bid goodbye to Volvo's iconic wagons.

BMW started the week bright with announcements for their most powerful electric SUV to date, unveiling the iX M60, together with another new model, launching the petrol powered sports car M2 Coupe in the same week. We also discuss what the future holds for Volkswagen's iconic Golf GTi, and respond to Volvo's plan to discontinue its sedans and wagons in the UK due to low sales numbers.

We round off the show with a glowing review of the impressive hot hatch, as Daniel got behind the wheels of the Toyota GR Corolla.
