2017 Holden Colorado caught on camera - UPDATE

Here we have what is claimed to be the first glimpse of the 2017 Holden Colorado's front-end styling. Dramatic change, right? The image was posted to Thai site MZCrazyCars, and going on the bad photoshop effort it appears to have come straight from the production line (hard cropping and blank background indicate that the car's surrounds were sensitive...

This new, sportier-looking version of the 2016 Fiat 500 debuted at the Geneva motor show, bringing with it a revamped exterior and revised interior which, according to the brand, is "unmistakably 500 and even more attractive"...

Ssangyong SIV-2 concept debuts at Geneva motor show

The Ssangyong SIV-2 concept that debuted at the 2016 Geneva motor show this week answers the question: "how would a bigger Ssangyong SUV look?" No, we're not talking as big as the Rexton, but if the mid-sized Ssangyong concept model offers any indication of what a production model to sit between that and the Tivoli could look like, the answer to our rhetorical question could well be: "quite nice, actually"...

Mercedes-AMG naming convention about brand philosophy, not raw figures

It used to be so simple. A Mercedes-Benz 300E was an E-Class with a 3.0-litre engine. Even the Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG used to identify an SL-Class with a 5.5-litre V8 tuned by AMG. With numerical model suffixes of 45, 63, 65 and now 43, how do these translate to the vehicles they represent? If the numbers are important, why release a 43 when there is already a 45? CarAdvice spoke with Mercedes-AMG Chief Executive Tobais Moers who said, “a 45 is a different attitude of car (to a 43)”...

2017 Renault Scenic: Funky French MPV not bound for Australia

Ssangyong XLV revealed

Boot space is at a premium in the small SUV segment, but not when you’ve got a backside as big as the Ssangyong XLV that debuted at the 2016 Geneva motor show. The new Ssangyong XLV showcases what happens when you take a compact SUV and make it, well, not so compact. The boot of the XLV is claimed to be able to swallow a massive 720 litres of luggage, a huge jump of 297L over the regular Tivoli on which it is based...

Kia Australia mulling Cee'd GT, next-gen Cerato Turbo

The sporty Kia Pro_Cee’d GT may be gone from Australian showrooms, but the Korean car maker’s local arm has not given up on the dream of a quick halo hatch model. Despite positive reviews, the 150kW 1.6-litre turbocharged Pro_cee’d GT exited the local market in late 2015 after poor sales led the company to decide against introducing the updated model that debuted overseas in June...

Mercedes-AMG pickup not part of utility line-up

Curb your excitement Australia. We may buy the highest ratio of AMG to regular Mercedes-Benz models in the world, and there may be a Mercedes-Benz-developed dual-cab ute in the pipeline… but the two are not planned to collide. Yet to have its name officially confirmed, though speculated to potentially carry the moniker X-, Z- or possibly GLT-Class, Mercedes-Benz has confirmed to CarAdvice its upcoming pickup will not be offered as a standalone AMG model...
