Renault Megane RS 'more a match for Golf R' - CEO

It's clearly a crucial model for the French carmaker both globally and in Australia for more than just sales numbers, according to local Renault CEO, Andrew Moore, who spoke with CarAdvice at the Australian launch recently...

2019 Renault Megane RS review

Despite downsizing the motor, the new third-gen Renault Megane RS is a huge step up from the model it replaces with more pace, equipment and tech than ever before. It's no less capable, yet far more liveable.

Lexus UX launching without Apple CarPlay in Australia

In a move that may seem more than a little puzzling to buyers, Lexus plans to launch its all-new UX crossover later this year in Australia without Apple CarPlay. While the company says it will begin rolling out the technology some time in 2019, it should be noted each of the UX's competitors – namely the Audi Q2, BMW X1 and X2, and the Volvo XC40 – are available with CarPlay as standard kit across the range or, in the case of BMW, in the form of an optional wireless setup...

The idea forms part of the company's holistic 'Visionary Concept' with several innovative technologies including an airless wheel/tyre package, tyres made of wood, and 3D printing...

Michelin developing ultra high-speed tyres, alternative materials

French tyre maker Michelin is currently developing a tyre capable of cracking a mind-blowing 482km/h (300mph), which would allow street-legal hyper-cars like the Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Agera RS to exceed higher straight-line speeds than what they have officially recorded to date (431km/h and 447.2km/h respectively)...

Pushing the pedal to the metal in a spanking new Mercedes-AMG E63 S down Mount Panorama’s Conrod Straight with the speedo counter nudging 250km/h might seem like a silly thing to do on a Monday morning, but to any car enthusiast worth their salt, it’s quite literally the Holy Grail...
