2018-19 Volkswagen Golf recalled

Volkswagen Australia has recalled the 2018-19 Golf, over concerns about the rear seat bench. According to the company, the welded connection of the rear-seat bench might not be correctly connected. In an accident, there's a risk the rear seat headrest won't be fully effective, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant. A total of 1504 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Sergio Marchionne voted 'World Car Person of the Year'

Sergio Marchionne has been voted '2018 World Car Person of the Year' by the World Car Awards jury, after his sudden passing in July last year. The award was voted on this week by more than 80 jurors from 24 countries, and was presented to Marchionne's replacement as Fiat Chrysler chairman and chief executive, Mike Manley. “It is an honour for me to receive this recognition from the World Car Awards’ jury, made posthumously to Sergio Marchionne," Manley said of the award.

2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N pricing and specs

Hyundai Australia has confirmed pricing and specifications for the new i30 Fastback N, which kicks off $1500 dearer than its hatchbacked sibling. Priced from $41,990 before on-road costs, the i30 Fastback N differs from the hatchback in obvious ways like the sedan-like liftback body, along with a new chassis and suspension tune that is a little softer – this setup will be carried over to the hatchback at some point in the future, too.

Mercedes-Benz Concept EQV revealed

Mercedes-Benz has whipped the covers off the Concept EQV, a thinly-veiled preview of the production V-Class EV set for release at this year's Frankfurt motor show. In keeping with the EQC, the EQV is a mildly more futuristic looking V-Class, with Mercedes-Benz's new lighting signature and gloss black detailing the defining features up front, along with a light bar across the top of the grille.

Kia Australia axes Rondo, Soul and Optima

Kia Australia will stop selling its three lowest-volume cars to make life easier for its dealers, confirming the local death of its Rondo people-mover, Soul hatchback and Optima sedan. The Rondo has already been removed from the company's website, after finding just 150 buyers last year and 226 the year before. That represents only 0.3 per cent of the brand's sales in Australia over those two years.
