The Audi Q4 crossover has been spied between tests at one of the company's evaluation facilities. Up front the new model doesn't look too far removed from the Q3, with the two vehicles sporting virtually identical headlights. The Q4 does seem to feature a different grille insert, and a revised front bumper design.

Ford Australia not planning to kill passenger cars

Ford Australia doesn’t intend to follow its parent company’s move to all but axe its entire passenger-car range in the USA, but admits the future of the mid-sized Mondeo is uncertain. The Mondeo’s North American twin, the Fusion, is set to be culled among a raft of models including the Fiesta city car, Focus small car, and Taurus large car. It'll leave the Mustang sports car as a lone passenger car in a showroom dominated by trucks and SUVs.
