2019 Ford Focus teased ahead of April 10 reveal

The hatchback has been snapped, spied and teased extensively over the past 12 months, but the Blue Oval has kept us waiting for a closer look.

Australian Capital Territory proposes sweeping P-Plate changes

The ACT State Government has proposed a midnight curfew for P-Plate drivers, as part of a revised Graduated Licensing Scheme. The push is a response to the Canberra road toll, and draws on "insights and experiences from across Australia" for inspiration. At the moment, probationary drivers represent 6.5 per cent of license holders in the ACT, but accounted for 14.6 per cent of drivers involved in fatal accidents.

Volkswagen Amarok V6 gets a power boost

Volkswagen has announced a more powerful Amarok V6 is on the way, just in time to greet the range-topping V6 Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Power will come from a new, Euro 6 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 making 190kW and 580Nm – up from the 165kW and 550Nm (180kW on over boost) offered by the current range-topper. Those tracking the incoming X-Class will know those figures are almost a perfect match for the 190kW and 550Nm on offer in the X350d, although the Volkswagen actually offers more torque.
