July saw no less than seven new models reach local shores, these include the new Porsche Carrera T, Bentley Bentayga Diesel, Volkswagen Touareg and an updated version of the Mercedes C-Class. 

As we head into the third quarter of 2018, automakers will launch another seven new models during the month of July. Toyota updates its popular Aygo city hatchback and their CH-R. 

Bentley adds a V8 model to its Bentayga range, adding to the diesel model it launched in July. Renault's flagship hot hatch, the new Megane RS is also a new addition in August. It's powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged engine producing 205kW. 

And there are facelifts to Hyundai's Creta and Tuscon while Lexus unveils its new UX SUV to the world's media later in Spain.
