News round-up: Mitsubishi extends warranty, Infiniti shows Q60 concept


The Mitsubishi range is now to be offered with a five-year warranty on all models. Mitsubishis were previously offered with a three-year warranty, but this has now been extended on every car and pick-up the company makes, including the L200 commercial vehicle and the plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV. The L200 qualifies for a 125,000-mile warranty, while the rest of the range gets cover for 62,500 miles

All models will also come with three years of European roadside assistance in the case of a breakdown or accident.


The Infiniti Q60 concept car has been revealed ahead of its public debut at the Detroit motor show next week.

The concept, which provides strong clues about the styling of Infiniti's next-generation Q60 sports coupe, features design cues both from the recent Q80 Inspiration concept car, and from the Q50 Eau Rouge.

The two-door coupe offers a 2+2 seating layout, and features carbonfibre and Alcantara and eather trim inside. The model sits on custom 21-inch alloy wheels.


The Volkswagen Amarok is now available with a top-spec special-edition model that is the most luxurious version of the pick-up ever sold.

The VW Amarok Ultimate costs from £29,555 (excluding VAT) and comes with bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, 19-inch alloy wheels, Alcantara seats, satellite-navigation, Bluetooth, a rear parking camera and heated front seats.

It comes with a 178bhp version of the 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine, and comes with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.
