Alfa’s QV badge will soon be exclusive to Giulia and above

Alfa Romeo’s Quadrifoglio Verde badge, seen most recently on hot versions of the MiTo and Giulietta hatches, will soon become a far more exclusive image. The familiar four-leafed clover graphic first appeared nearly one hundred years ago as a good-luck talisman for racing driver Ugo Sivocci, and it was his victory at the Targa Florio that saw Alfa Romeo embrace the traditionally Irish image...

Hyundai Tucson name change to have minimal effect

Hyundai Australia is confident that changing the name of its brand new compact SUV from ix35, back to Tucson, will not have a negative impact on sales or marketing, despite the former's status as a top-seller. Speaking to CarAdvice at the launch of the new Tucson this week, Hyundai Australia chief operating officer John Elsworth said all the company’s internal research showed the model name wasn’t a huge deal to new car buyers...

Drunk and drug affected drivers given green light thanks to Victoria Police

If you live and drive in Victoria, you should be fuming. Not only does Victoria have the most draconian, nanny state driving rules and speed limit enforcement for general punters like you and I — the government has now made it even easier for crooks and scumbags to evade police...

Hyundai says it expects the overall new car market to be close to a record year in 2015, potentially breaking the 2013 total of 1...

Hyundai Accent will get 'close to off-setting' i20 volume loss

Hyundai Australia is expecting that more aggressive pricing and a lift in sales of other models will counteract the departure of the i20 light car and the unavailability of the i10. In 2014 Hyundai sold 14,979 i20s compared to just 7,561 Accents, meaning the company will need to push its new entry vehicle aggressively if it intends to reclaim that marketshare with a more simplified single offering...

The Tesla Model X will bring more female buyers to the brand’s currently male-dominated customer base, the company’s local marketing and communications manager believes. Tesla Australia’s Heath Walker admits men have been responsible for the majority of local Model S sales so far, but can see the tide turning, particularly once the Model X SUV joins the range around July/August 2016...

Fiat Panda axed in Australia

The unsung Fiat Panda has been quietly discontinued from Australia after fewer than two years on the market. Panda sales have been running at about one-tenth the level of the better-known Fiat 500. As such, Fiat Chrysler Australia has decided to rationalise (re-align) its range, given it will soon launch a pair of brand new models — the 500X crossover and 124 roadster — to keep its dealers occupied...
