Honda HR-V update coming soon, facelift in 2018

The Honda HR-V has stood tall against an influx of new rivals, remaining one of the better sellers in the small SUV segment. But that doesn’t mean Honda will rest on its laurels. The Japanese brand’s Australian arm is set to offer an “upgrade” on the current model imminently, ahead of a more comprehensive HR-V update due early in 2018...

2017 Toyota C-HR pricing and specs

The brand new Toyota C-HR small crossover launched in Australia today, with the express mission of “disrupting” a segment led by the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V despite severely restricted supply out of Japan. Aggressively styled, turbocharged and spun-off Toyota’s more dynamically engaging new architecture, the C-HR is a case of ‘better late than never’ for Australia’s biggest brand...
