Ford 'committed' to Australia, may hire ex-Holden employees

In the wake of Holden's exit from Australia, its major competitor, Ford, has seized the opportunity to reiterate its commitment to the market, telling the Federal Government it's planning further investment and suggesting it may absorb some of Holden's former staff. Yesterday, Holden's US parent company, General Motors, announced it would cease selling cars in Australia by 2021, with the closure of its local head office, test track and engineering and design locations planned for mid-year.

The man who saved Holden four times in 10 years, but was beaten in the end

COMMENT Former Holden boss Mark Reuss, now the global head of General Motors product development, is too humble to admit it, but he saved Holden – and gave the company an opportunity to pull itself out of a nosedive – on at least four significant occasions in the past 12 years. When he was the boss of Holden from 2008 to 2009, he brokered the deal between Detroit and the Australian Federal Government to install the Cruze small car on the production line alongside the locally-made Commodore.

Five reasons to love the 2020 Audi RSQ3

It's par for the course for most manufacturers to opt for a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in every compact performance application.

That alone is reason enough to love something a bit different... but here are five standout highlights from what is a proper performance SUV.
