2019 Hyundai Grand Santa Fe spied

Hyundai's upcoming full-size SUV replacement for the Grand Santa Fe offered overseas has been spied again, ahead of a likely reveal in the next 18 months. Believed to be a twin-under-the-skin to the production Kia Telluride three-row SUV, the full-size Hyundai crossover will sit above the new Santa Fe in the company's global line-up and likely target the North American market.

Holden sales nosedive, down 23 per cent in Q1

Holden sales fell by a drastic 29 per cent in March compared to the same month last year, rounding out an extremely disappointing quarter-one (Q1) in 2018. GM’s local subsidiary, now in its first calendar year as a full-range importer rather than local manufacturer, has seen sales tumble 23 per cent over the Q1 period. Holden’s reduced national dealer network is clearly battling to keep volume at a feasible level, just six months after it shuttered the Adelaide factory.

China's LDV and MG making inroads

Sales of China-made new vehicles in Australia have risen 64 per cent to 1727 units over the first quarter of 2018. For context, Q1 sales of Italian-built vehicles were 1032, while 940 Swedish-built cars found a home. The figure for China-made cars almost topped the number sourced from France (1782). The biggest sources of imports were Japan (89,614), Thailand (77,746) and Korea (42,934).
