Toyota to join new hypercar endurance racing class, produce road-going version
Toyota has used the pre-race press conference at 24 hours of Le Mans to announce its continuation in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) for the 2020/2021 racing season.
A new hypercar class will replace the current LMP1 category, in which Toyota Gazoo Racing runs its hybrid TS050 as the sole manufacturer-based team.
Infiniti Cars Australia will have to go without a mid-sized SUV offering for a little while longer, with the company confirming with CarAdvice that the all-new QX50 has been delayed for our market yet again.
After initially being earmarked for a late 2018 debut in Australia, Infiniti's local director told CarAdvice in July last year its Mercedes-Benz GLC fighter would lob Down Under in mid-2019.
Suzuki Australia has confirmed details of the updated 2020 Baleno light hatch ahead of its local sales launch in August.
As before, the refreshed Baleno will be available in two trim levels – GL and GLX – with minor styling and equipment revisions depending on grade.
Design changes include the new front grille, revised bumpers front and rear, along with new designs for the 15-inch wheel covers on the GL and 16-inch alloys on the GLX.
Holden has released the details on its 2020 Colorado, which builds upon a 2016 facelift of the four- and two-wheel drive, 2.8-litre diesel ute.
It's not an all-new model (yet), and this update isn't as dramatic as the facelifts Mitsubishi and Ford have given their utes recently. There are some changes, however. The biggest is two new permanent additions to the range.
