Peugeot-Citroen executive dismisses Holden takeover rumours

A senior international executive for Peugeot-Citroen has dismissed rumours of a possible takeover of the Holden brand seven months after the report surfaced. In February this year the Australian Financial Review claimed the local distributor of Peugeot-Citroen cars – an independent firm called Inchcape – was “running the numbers” on adding Holden to its portfolio by prising it away from US parent company General Motors.

2020 Porsche Taycan revealed: 1050Nm of torque and 0-200km/h in under 10 seconds

Porsche may not have been the first German marque to the market with an electric vehicle, but it sure has ensured the Porsche Taycan lives up to its name as a proper Porsche. Loosely translated, Taycan means "soul of a spirited young horse", and is pronounced 'tie-kahn'. Initially, the Taycan range will launch with two variants: Turbo, and the pinnacle Turbo S model. In true Porsche fashion, these two models represent the best in performance and grand touring.

Safest used cars in Australia rated: 2019 report

Road safety advocates have again targeted older cars as a key cause behind young driver deaths, with figures showing vehicles more than 10 years old are over-represented in fatal crashes. However, despite the alarming statistics being highlighted by authorities for several years, not one state or territory government has an incentive program that would enable novice drivers to better afford a newer and safer car – instead leaving the financial burden on P-platers and their families.

2020 Holden Astra range to be trimmed, gain standard kit

Holden will trim back its Astra range for the 2020 model year, as it looks to boost sales in the hotly-contested small car class. Holden wouldn't confirm or deny the revisions, but official dealer documents reveal change is coming for the Lion Brand's rival to the Hyundai i30, Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Golf. The mid-spec R+ variant will be removed, with the existing Astra R to instead gain the active safety equipment previously reserved for the R+.
