Toyota RAV4: Local arm targeting 20 per cent hybrid sales

Toyota Australia expects the upcoming RAV4 Hybrid to see similar success to the petrol-electric Corolla and Camry ranges, projecting it'll account for a 20 per cent slice of overall sales. Speaking at the global launch drive of the all-new RAV4 in California, Sean Hanley, Toyota's local vice president for sales and marketing, said the local division expects hybrid models to account for one in every five RAV4s sold in Australia.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton upgrade revealed

The buffed-up 2019 Mitsubishi Triton – a substantial mid-life update to the existing model – has been revealed in Thailand, ahead of its Australian launch in January next year. Design-wise, it’s a big leap. The ‘dynamic shield’ grille, higher bonnet, pronounced flares over the front and rear wheel arches, new wheels, pronounced sculpting running along the side of the tray and revised tail-lights give this Triton the requisite ‘tough’ look.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe recalled

Hyundai has recalled the latest (TM) Santa Fe over an issue with the rear curtain airbag, unrelated to the ongoing Takata airbag recall. According to the company, a protruding mounting bolt can damage the fabric of the curtain airbag, leading to less-than-perfect inflation or deployment in an accident. Hyundai is at pains to point out the fact there's no risk of shrapnel, the likes of which makes certain Takata inflators deadly, upon deployment.
