SsangYong Tivoli on hiatus until 2021 as stock runs out

The 2020 SsangYong Tivoli and Tivoli XLV have been quietly put on hiatus after the company sold out of stock in Australia. Although the small Tivoli SUV and slightly larger Tivoli XLV sold in relatively modest numbers (67 and 24 cars respectively) in the first half of 2020, the company says this exhausted dealer stock and so SsangYong Australia has removed the models from its website. Year-to-date, the SsangYong Tivoli has outsold the Ford EcoSport and Renault Captur combined.

Toyota Corolla Cross SUV revealed, Australian launch due 2022

A new Toyota Corolla Cross SUV has been unveiled today, coming hot on the 'heels' of the recently revealed Yaris Cross. Leveraging the famous Corolla name, the new small SUV will go on sale in Thailand first, before expanding into global markets – including Australia, although not until late 2022 as a 'model year 2023' offering. The 2023 Toyota Corolla Cross will slot in between the Yaris Cross and the now iconic RAV4 as a more practical companion to the style-focused C-HR.

VW Amarok 580 TDV6 now in more models, no more AdBlue

The Volkswagen Amarok line-up is poised to get a power boost, with the biggest selling variant in the range getting the 580Nm TDV6 previously reserved for the most expensive models. And with the changes, the requirement for AdBlue will be dropped from newly introduced 580 models, as Volkswagen Australia switches to source all variants of the Amarok from Argentina rather than Germany.

Used Honda Civic sells for $US50,000

A used Honda Civic has sold for $US50,000 ($AU72,000) in the US despite being 20 years old and having no special history attached to it, showing Japanese cars are quickly increasing in cult and collector status. In Australia, that would be enough money to buy a brand-new top-of-the-range Honda Civic Type R and have about $20,000 left over in change. The immaculate example of a year 2000 Honda Civic Si two-door coupe had just 5644 miles on the odometer (9083km).
