2020 Holden Commodore spied

The updated Opel Insignia – known locally as the Holden Commodore – has been snapped by photographers this week in Europe, giving an early look as to what to expect from the mid-life refresh. From what we can see in the images, the Commodore/Insignia has most of its changes focused around the front end, with minimal camouflage at the rear. We're expecting the main revisions to be focused on the front bumper and grille, along with the headlights.

Waymo leads autonomous vehicle industry on disengagements

Google's self-driving cars, operating under the Waymo name, required human intervention just once every 11,154mi (17,950km) in 2018, comfortably making it the industry leader for disengagements. Waymo vehicles drove a whopping 1.2 million miles (1.93 million kilometres) in California last year, equating to a "50 per cent reduction in the rate of disengagements and a 96 per cent increase in the average miles travelled between disengagements" compared to 2017.
