Volkswagen Tarok: Australian launch is a 'no'

The Volkswagen Tarok ute isn’t big enough or powerful enough for the Australian market, according to the German brand’s local arm. The Tarok was revealed in early November as a concept virtually ready for production, and ready to sit below the company’s full-size Amarok ute that’s been on sale since 2011. Volkswagen Australia, however, is playing down its interest in the smaller ute despite the Amarok’s success.

2019 Ford Focus: Entry-level Ambiente surfaces in Australian govt database

The all-new Ford Focus has already been priced and specified for Australia – including the new crossover-styled Focus Active – but there's still one gaping hole in the line-up: a low-$20k base model. Well, that could all be about to change. The Australian Government's 'Green Vehicle Guide' included a mystery Ambiente variant in its Focus listing – which details a vehicle's CO2 emissions, fuel consumption, and noise data.

Tesla Model X v Lamborghini Aventador S drag - video

We know the Tesla Model X P100D is very, very quick off the line. It recently won a drag race against its super-SUV rivals, but there's always something faster and more powerful ready to race. With 450kW on tap from its four electric motors, and something called Ludicrous Mode, the Model X is a proper straight-line weapon, but it's up against some serious metal this time around.

Honda Civic Type R meets S2000 on track - video

The latest Honda Civic Type R has already established itself as one of the meanest, quickest hatchbacks going around – then again, it would want to be, given its storied lineage. Along with a history of quick, front-drive hatchbacks, Honda has the S2000 in its back catalogue. Sure, it's a rear-wheel drive convertible, but the idea of putting one head-to-head with the latest Type R is still tasty.
