2021 Volkswagen new cars

A chronic shortage of vehicles to sell - namely SUVs and Amarok - hurt Volkswagen in 2020. The signs are good for 2021, though. Volkswagen Group was down 21.5 per cent in Australia for the first 11 months compared to 2019, but it's not all bad news...

2021 Skoda new cars

Skoda almost halved the downturn felt by the market as a whole – dropping 8.8 per cent year-to-date against a strong 2019. In real terms and in a challenging climate, the Volkwagen sister brand is going relatively well in Australia. 2020 saw the injection of quality new models – updated Kodiaq arrived, as did new Kamiq – which came a little too late to make a big impact on sales figures...

2021 Mazda new cars

Mazda is an interesting case study in Australia, in that it has the highest percentage of private customers of any of the top ten mainstream brands. That's probably why its downturn of 15.8 percent lines up so closely to an overall 16 percent drop for the market. Mazda's figures generally closely resemble that of the market as a whole more so than any other brand...

2021 Audi new cars

Audi had a solid 2020 despite the challenging conditions, with sales up 2.6 per cent to the end of November. That slight increase comes against a market decline of 16 percent over the same period. Primarily, Audi has spent 2020 making up for lost time, after taking a number of cars off sale last year due to the requirement to meet more stringent new European WLTP regulations...

Ready to feel old? Well some of us at CarAdvice certainly do, now that we’ve been reminded the incredible Lamborghini Diablo has just turned 30.

Originally codenamed Project 132, the Diablo concept started in 1985, when the Countach was entering its twilight years...
