2021 Kia Stonic facelift unveiled, on sale in Australia late 2020

The facelifted 2021 Kia Stonic compact SUV has been unveiled in Europe – ahead of its Australian showroom arrival in late 2020. While the Kia Stonic has been on sale in Europe since 2017, its Australian debut was timed to coincide with this mid-life styling and technology update. The Kia Stonic will sit below the popular Kia Seltos, as the Korean brand aims to fill every niche in the hotly-contested sub-$40,000 SUV segment.

2021 Skoda Scala and Kamiq delayed for Australia

Skoda's new Scala 110TSI hatch and Kamiq 110TSI SUV have been temporarily withheld from being delivered to customers in Australia due to an electrical bug with the fuel-saving stop/start system. Stop/start technology turns the vehicle's engine off while the vehicle is stopped at traffic lights, lowering emissions and fuel consumption. It automatically reactivates the engine once the driver releases the brake pedal. It's a common feature on most modern cars.
