Safest used cars in Australia rated: 2019 report

Road safety advocates have again targeted older cars as a key cause behind young driver deaths, with figures showing vehicles more than 10 years old are over-represented in fatal crashes.

2020 Holden Astra range to be trimmed, gain standard kit

Holden will trim back its Astra range for the 2020 model year, as it looks to boost sales in the hotly-contested small car class. Holden wouldn't confirm or deny the revisions, but official dealer documents reveal change is coming for the Lion Brand's rival to the Hyundai i30, Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Golf. The mid-spec R+ variant will be removed, with the existing Astra R to instead gain the active safety equipment previously reserved for the R+.
