2019 Kia 'Ceed SUV' spied

Photographers have snapped images of a mystery Kia crossover prototype doing rounds in Europe, believed to be based on the Ceed hatchback. In terms of size, the new Kia SUV slots between the Rio-based Stonic and the larger Sportage, making it around the same size as the Hyundai Kona and Ford Focus Active. A clear link to the Ceed can be seen at the front, with the slim 'tiger nose' grille and aggressive headlights looking very much like the Euro-market hatch and wagon.

Volkswagen rallying dealers for emissions election stoush

Volkswagen is turning to dealers in its push for revised emissions standards Down Under, arming dealer principals with a sternly-worded letter to hand their local member of parliament ahead of next year's Federal Election. The company has been one of the most vocal campaigners for revised legislation around vehicle emissions and fuel quality in Australia, lest we join what it's dubbed the 'automotive third world'.

Ssangyong Rexton DKR to tackle 2019 Dakar Rally

The Ssangyong Rexton DKR has been unveiled a month before it enters the 2019 Dakar Rally. Apart from the badges and doors, the Rexton DKR seems to share very little with the showroom-ready Rexton. The race car's body is welded to a chrome-molybdenum multi-tubular chassis. The Rexton DKR is powered by a V8 petrol engine generating around 335kW of power. Weighing around 1900kg, the Rexton DKR can reportedly complete the 0-100km/h standard in 4.4 seconds, and hit a top speed of 195km/h.

Victorian Government proposes new roadworks speed limit rules

Roadworks speed limits would be returned to normal outside of work hours, under proposed legislation from re-elected Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews. Mr. Andrews posted on Facebook announcing the Government's plans to make "a new rule" so motorists aren't stuck going 40km/h past an "empty work site". Similar legislation has been tabled in past, but never enacted.
