Holden rules out seven-year warranty

Holden won't move to a seven-year warranty to win back buyers – but it could extend free servicing based on the success of its current offer on the Colorado four-wheel drive ute, and seven-seat Trailblazer and Acadia SUVs. Holden boss Dave Buttner said the company has no plans to match Kia's seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty – which has led the industry since October 2014, and could soon be matched by Mitsubishi.

2020 Skoda Octavia: Interior sketched

The next-generation Skoda Octavia has been teased again, this time with a designer's drawing of the new model's interior. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Octavia will have a much more modern dashboard layout with higher-set displays and a new two-spoke steering wheel. Skoda says the Octavia will feature a new "multi-level instrument panel", a free-standing central display, and a new rocker switch with shift-by-wire technology in place of the previous selector lever.
