2019 Kia K900 sketched

Kia has released a pair of sketches previewing its upcoming K900 flagship, ahead of a likely debut at the New York motor show next month. The company describes its large sedan as "sophisticated and stately", with a new grille containing 176 individual jewel-like cells. Apparently, it's designed to be "suggestive of released energy flowing away from its centre" but, to our eyes, it looks remarkably similar in concept to the Diamond Grille debuted on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Renault EZ-GO concept revealed

Renault has coined a new phrase for its EZ-GO ride-sharing concept at the Geneva motor show, presenting a first-of-its-kind ‘robo-vehicle’ as its vision for how urban transportation will evolve. Equipped with Level 4 autonomous capabilities, the EZ-GO does without traditional pedals or a steering wheel, instead seating occupants in a more social U-shaped configuration, with room for up to six people at a time.

Electrification, luxury and design: Talking with Marek Reichman and Andy Palmer

Andy Palmer sits near the top of the list of industry executives journalists like to talk to. There's a refreshing honesty to the 54-year old Brit, a willingness to slice through the sort of circumspect phrases his underlings put into press kits and speak his mind. He managed it when working in the ultra-corporate world of Nissan, where he rose to be head of global product development. Since taking over as Aston’s CEO in 2014 his speaking has become plainer.

Toyota has no plans to extend warranty beyond three years

Toyota Australia says it currently has no plans to change its warranty period from the current three-year product to match competitors that are offering five or seven in the ever competitive market. With the likes of Hyundai, Kia, Honda, Peugeot and plenty of others offering five or seven-year warranties, the question has come up as to why Toyota, Mazda and others have so far stayed stagnant in their approach to consumer warranties.

2018 Range Rover SV Coupe revealed, Australian debut confirmed

Jaguar Land Rover's (JLR) crack Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team has whipped the covers off its limited-run, three-door take on the Range Rover, dubbed the Range Rover SV Coupe. With a proper three-door body, Range Rover says the SV Coupe the "first full-size luxury SUV coupe" in the world. BMW and Mercedes-Benz have both dipped their toe into the water, sure, but their sloping-roofed four-door crossovers clearly weren't committed enough to the cause for SVO.
