VFACTS: April 2018 new vehicle sales

Australia’s new vehicle market cooled off in April after a record first-quarter to the calendar year, with the industry’s VFACTS figures reporting 82,930 cars and trucks sold, down 0.2 per cent over the same month last year. One-third of the way into the sales year, the market tally sits at 374,468 units, up 3.3 per cent over 2017’s all-time record figure. So, this year is still set to be the biggest ever for sales/demo registrations.

Mini Hatch: Through the generations

To find out, let's have a look back in time to see how the German-owned British hatch has evolved after nearly two decades on sale. Launched towards the end of 2000 (2002 in Australia), the 'R50' Mini hatchback was the first model launched under the new Mini marque, after the original Mini was discontinued earlier that same year.
