Volkswagen Tiguan 162TSI: Dominant sales expected for performance SUV

Volkswagen Australia's research suggests at least one-in-five Tiguan buyers will go for the hotted-up 162TSI Highline derivative. The pseudo Golf GTI on stilts will arrive next week at a starting price of $48,490 plus on-road costs, around $54k drive-away, slotting it just below the 140TDI Highline. Yet the Tiguan 162TSI is shaping up to be a top-seller within its line-up...

I’m sure I’m not the only person who has imagined whether the nice old lady at number six has some fantastic, classic metal squirreled away under a sheet behind the B&D...

Australia's key role in Mazda/Isuzu Ute deal

Australia was a key driver in Mazda’s decision to enter a joint-venture (JV) arrangement with Isuzu Ute to collaborate on the next-generation BT-50 and D-Max ute/pickup trucks, due around 2020.

Autonomous cars won’t kill people, but they will 'take our jobs'

I’m both excited and nervous about the arrival of the autonomous car. Seeing firsthand at CES 2017  just how dedicated the automotive industry and the big-name tech brands are to making cars that won’t need to be driven, was an eye-opener for me. It sounds like a future world full of promise: people won’t need to worry about driving their car home if they’re too tired or too drunk to drive...
