UK MPs call for hands-free phone ban in cars

We know playing with your phone while driving can be dangerously distracting but a group of British MPs are calling for the UK’s ban on phone use while driving to be extended to hands-free devices. The report from the Transport Committee states there’s evidence even a hands-free device creates the same risks of crashing as holding one’s mobile phone while driving.

2020 Kia Mohave revealed

The heavily revised Kia Mohave was revealed overnight in South Korea. As far as we can tell, the facelifted Mohave is almost identical to the Mohave Masterpiece concept, which made its debut at this year's Seoul motor show. Up front the Mohave sports a dramatically restyled with exposed LED headlight pods, a rugged take on the company's signature tiger-nose grille, a restyled bonnet, and splashes of faux metal on the front bumper.

Fuel excise in the spotlight as calls for 'road tax' grow

Dropping income from the fuel excise is projected to put pressure on our road infrastructure going forward and there's no clear plan in place to solve the problem.

Peugeot introduces first petrol particulate filter to Australia

It seems the French have found a way around Australia's poor fuel quality, beating the rest of the world to bring the first petrol particulate filter (PPF) to our market in the new Peugeot 308 GT warm hatch. Peugeot Australia has confirmed that local versions of the 308 GT will indeed be fitted with a PPF, despite other manufacturers like Porsche and Volkswagen claiming they're unable to bring their PPF-fitted powertrains Down Under due to our sulphur-rich petroleum.
