2018 HSV range to be broader, but not boring: "If we do a boring product, we're dead"

HSV's 2018 vehicle line-up, beyond the end of Holden's Australian production program, will be more diverse and focussed on attracting new customers - but not at the cost of excitement. Speaking to CarAdvice this week, HSV managing director Tim Jackson said he’s confident Holden Special Vehicles can succeed in a post-locally-built Holden Commodore era...

Mercedes-AMG to open 10 showrooms in Australia in 2017, Sydney to be first

Mercedes-AMG A45 to get a new, more powerful engine in next generation.

The Mercedes-AMG A45 hot-hatch is already verging on hyper-hatch territory, but in its next generation it is expected to get even more manic thanks to a new drivetrain. The current Mercedes-AMG A45 model already hits hard in the four-cylinder turbo hatch battle with its stonking outputs of 280kW of power and 475Nm of torque, while its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has been lauded for its race-track friendly nature...

Not only is the Lexus LC500 coupe the first car to be developed on the marque’s new front engine/rear-wheel drive platform, dubbed ‘Global Architecture – Luxury’, it’s also the most torsionally rigid production car ever produced by the luxury Japanese marque. That makes it 60 per cent more rigid than the GS performance sedan, and stiffer even that the highly-prized, limited-build LFA supercar...

Volvo and Polestar to power up with a range of electric and hybrid models

Volvo and its recently purchased tuning arm Polestar initially paired up to make powered-up petrolhead cars. But that won’t be the way the two companies combine in the future, CarAdvice can reveal. The Polestar arm as we currently know it, is set to be retired when the current-generation S60 and V60 Polestar models finish up within the next 18-24 months, and it is likely that the Polestar brand will then be applied to plug-in hybrid and electric models with a performance bent...
