- shares

♫ Just the two of us: Mandy Turner and Mike Stevens are on the panel this week.

In cars, the Hyundai Kona EV is due in 2018, an HSV-tuned Colorado is coming, pricing has been revealed for the incoming Range Rover Velar, and the all-new Volkswagen Polo has been teased ahead of its debut this week.

Also, BMW slammed the Australian government on our lack of EV infrastructure, and, in more BMW news, the 2018 6 Series Gran Turismo has been revealed ahead of its Australian debut.


We talk to Trent Nikolic, who attended the launch of the 2017 Holden Astra sedan and had a chance to drive it.

One of the best off-roading tracks you could do is the trip to the Birdsville Races (horse race, not cars), and we chat to event organiser, Gary Brook.
