This week, regular hosts Paul Maric and Mandy Turner are joined by Lifestyle Editor, Tegan Lawson, to talk all the latest news and reviews in the Australian new-car market and around the world.

As always, expect shenanigans.

What happened in this week's episode?

In the news this week, Renault announced the end of production for its current third-generation Megane RS hot hatch/coupe, while early images of the updated Volkswagen Golf, all-new CC and all-new 'Teramont' SUV surfaced online.

Tesla has launched the wickedly quick Model S P100D and Model X P100D, and Honda's also rather rapid new Type R hot hatch has now been confirmed for Australia.

Lastly in the news, ride-sharing service Uber is now finally legal in Victoria, and Chinese manufacturer Great Wall has delivered the first batch of Steed utes to Australia.

Tegan got busy over the past week with a NavMan product launch, a road-trip in Ford's updated Focus, and a media event for the new Assetto Corsa racing game.

We also hear from Trent, who tells us all about his first Australian drive in the new Infiniti Q30, a hugely important model for the brand globally.

And what's a week worth without a strong opinion? Rob Margeit gets on to tell us his thoughts on this whole ute-versus-truck lingo drama. Oh dear...
