IN BRIEF

HONDA has announced prices for the new HR-V 5-door models ahead of its April launch date.The 5-door manual costs pounds 15,195, the VTEC 5-door manual pounds 15,695 and the CVT auto pounds 16,095.

Honda expects sales of the car to double to around 8,000 this year.

CAR giant Daimler/Chrysler is about to introduce ceramic brake discs - developed from space technology.

The discs are produced using ceramic material reinforced with carbon fibre, which make them almost indestructible.

Initial field tests have shown they can still reliably bring a vehicle to rest even after being used for more than 200,000 miles.

AT this year's Birmingham International Motor Show at the NEC in October a whole hall will be devoted to the retail sector. In 1998 more than 100 firms exhibited.
