Mazda moves to five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty
Mazda has joined the likes of Holden and Ford, extending its three-year warranty to a five-year, unlimited-kilometre program.
The longer term applies to all vehicles sold from August 1, and brings the company into line with Holden, Ford, Hyundai, Honda, Mitsubishi, Peugeot, Renault, Skoda and Citroen. The industry is still led by Kia and its seven-year, unlimited-kilometre coverage period, however.
Skoda has unveiled the Karoq Scout, a more rugged version of its mid-sized SUV that should appeal more to those who regularly venture off the beaten track.
While not an all-out off-roader, the Karoq Scout boasts numerous enhancements to give it a more capable look and feel, and comes as standard with all-wheel drive.
Chinese-backed, US-based electric vehicle start-up Faraday Future has released images of the first body-in-white example of its upcoming FF91 crossover.
With deliveries on track to commence in December this year, the company says it has beaten its "timeline objectives" so far, and is working closely with "key suppliers" to continue beating or meeting its deadlines.
These photos of two BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe prototypes seemingly confirm the styling details of a four-door flagship with a sloping roofline, revealed earlier this year in a trademark filing.
It also follows the template set out by the M8 Gran Coupe concept, which was unveiled at this year's Geneva motor show.
The Gran Coupe is expected to round out the new 8 Series' body style offerings, which also include a coupe and will expand to encompass a yet-to-be-launched convertible.
