2020 DS 8 spied

The DS 8 luxury sedan has been photographed during testing in Europe. Although the prototype is disguised all over, we can see it very closely resembles the car leaked at the end of May. Up front it has the brand's upright six-point grille, while along the sides there's a pronounced shoulder. At the back, the DS 8 has thin jewel-like tail-lights similar to ones employed by the DS 7 Crossback.

Hyundai developing central armrest airbag

Your next Hyundai or Kia could feature a new type of side-impact protection, with the Hyundai Motor Group revealing a front armrest-mounted side impact airbag. The new airbag is designed to stop head injuries caused by front passengers colliding with each other, or hard objects in the cabin. Research quoted by Hyundai claims 'secondary' impacts in the cabin are responsible for 45 per cent of head injuries in side-impact collisions.

2020 Skoda Superb facelift: Australian launch delayed

Skoda Australia has confirmed the updated 2020 Superb range has been delayed due to production shuffling caused by WLTP emissions regulations in Europe. Initially earmarked for a third quarter launch this year, the facelifted Superb now doesn't have an official arrival date at this point in time, but a safe guess is that the full line-up will rollout into 2020.
