Smart: Through the generations

Smart has officially been around for 20 years. The city-car maker burst onto the scene in July 1998, with a two-seater (the inventively named ForTwo) measuring just over 2.5m long. More than 2.2 million examples have been sold since then, across 46 markets around the world. Australia was one of them, but the little Smart didn't really fit into our big-car-centric culture, and so the brand was withdrawn from the market in 2015.

Subaru Impreza, Liberty, Outback recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2004-2009 Impreza and 2008-2010 Liberty/Outback over concerns about the fuel pump wiring harness. According to the company, the wiring harness connector on affected vehicles can deteriorate over time. That could stop the fuel pump operating correctly, potentially extending the time taken to crank the engine on startup, causing the car not to start or stall. If the engine stalls and won't restart, this poses a hazard to the driver and other road users..

2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat teased again

Dodge has teased the 2019 Challenger SRT Hellcat again, this time using a cryptic video on YouTube to preview its upcoming muscle car. The video, titled RED797_62818, shows a Challenger hammering through the desert, with a heavy overlay of supercharger whine to accompany the requisite V8 rumble. There are a few theories floating around about what the numbers mean, but the most logical is that 62818 is a date (in typically backwards US fashion), more specifically the 28th of June, 2018.

Renault teases new compact SUV

Renault has teased a new compact SUV on social media this morning, ahead of a full reveal at the Moscow motor show in August. The front-on shot doesn't reveal much about the car, beside the fact it'll have a face inspired by the Megane, and that Renault wants it to be a 'real breakthrough' in the Russian market. It'll actually be built in Moscow, around the M0 platform underpinning the Dacia Duster and Renault Captur at the moment.
