2018 Lexus LS: Interior works of art

The new Lexus LS hasn't quite made it to Australia yet, but that hasn't stopped the Japanese marque from showcasing the intricate pieces and trims that are available for the limousine's plush interior ahead of its local launch in April. Headlining the interior is the availability of beautiful moulded glass panels inspired by Japanese kiriko glass, contrasting with stitched leather upholstery, metal door handles and hand-pleated silk surfaces.

2018 Hyundai Veloster N walkaround: video

The new 2018 Hyundai Veloster made its global debut last week in Detroit, after months of spy photos and a short series of teaser images. As expected, the new Veloster will be offered in three main grades: 110kW/179Nm base models, 150kW/265Nm SR Turbo variants, and the top-shelf 205kW Veloster N hero model. The 2018 Veloster keeps the quirky four-door hatch layout of its predecessor, but takes on a sharpened new look for the latest generation.

2018 Kia Cerato takes on... a Lamborghini Aventador?

In one of the more creative marketing campaigns we've seen, Kia's North American arm has decided to pit the new Forte (2018 Cerato) against "one of the fastest, flashiest, most coveted sports cars ever", the Lamborghini Aventador. Despite the comparison being held at a race track, much of the focus is on both vehicles at a standstill - very clever indeed. Anyway, we won't spoil it for you, watch the clip above and tell us what you think!
