Motorclassica: Citroen centenary the focus for 2019

Citroen will celebrate its 100th anniversary at Motorclassica this year, promising to wheel out some of the most significant cars from its Australian history in the process. Last year, the event celebrated 70 years of Porsche, 70 years of Harley-Davidson, featured a tribute to Cadillac, and was sponsored by Mercedes-Benz – based on that, we'd suggest Citroen won't be alone in showcasing its classic wares to highlight a milestone this year.

2019 Ford Endura crash tested again as part of ANCAP safety audit

It's the phone call no manufacturer wants to get. A call from ANCAP advising one of their vehicles has been purchased for a secondary verification crash test. This time it's Ford's turn, with ANCAP selecting the new Ford Endura for an audit test to confirm results obtained by Euro NCAP. An audit test occurs when ANCAP decides to reassess a vehicle and ensure it still meets the standards for ratings previously achieved in local crash-testing or via tests carried out by partner Euro NCAP.
