Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR delayed until 2020

It appears the limited-edition Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR won't hit Australian showrooms until the new year, with the local arm confirming the most powerful production GTI yet has been delayed. Volkswagen Australia has now indicated a tentative "Q2 2020" launch frame for its race-inspired front-drive hot hatch, after it was initially slated to arrive Down Under this month.

Nissan Terra still unlikely for Australia

The Nissan Terra is no closer to being introduced in Australia – in this generation or beyond – because the cost to upgrade it to meet local standards is for now deemed prohibitively expensive. The Nissan Terra is a seven-seat four-wheel-drive based on the Navara ute and went on sale overseas last year. It is a direct rival to other ute-based seven-seat four-wheel drives such as the Isuzu MU-X(D-Max), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (Triton), Ford Everest (Ranger) and Holden Trailblazer (Colorado).
