2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car unveiled

The Chevrolet Corvette C8.R race car has been unveiled alongside the Stingray convertible. Designed for the GT Le Mans racing series, the C8.R follows the mid-engine format of the road-going Corvette range. While the race car bears a very close visual resemblance to the street-legal coupe, practically every exterior panel looks to be unique. The front and rear wheel arches are wider, and there are new wing mirrors, latches for the bonnet and rear engine cover, and plenty of exposed screws.

Hyundai introduces seven-year warranty as a limited offer

Hyundai has introduced a seven-year warranty across most of its model range – up from the industry-first five-year coverage it introduced 20 years ago. However, according to a confidential dealer bulletin obtained by CarAdvice, the factory-backed extended warranty only applies to certain Hyundai vehicles ordered and delivered from the beginning of October through to the end of December 2019 – with “no exceptions”.

Mazda 3 TCR racer revealed

Mazda has finally given the 3 hatchback a turbo engine, a more aggressive body, and a track-ready suspension – but it's reserved for TCR racers only. Boo! That's right, the latest 3 has been given a racy makeover for the fast-growing TCR race series, meaning we could see Mazda's compact hatch rubbing panels with race versions of the Hyundai i30, Audi RS3, Honda Civic Type R, Renault Megane, Peugeot 308, Volkswagen Golf and Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

2020 Volvo XC40 Electric sketched out, includes 'frunk'

The design of the Volvo XC40 Electric, the company's first EV, has been teased ahead of its launch on October 16, European time. Externally the electric XC40 will feature a cleaner rear bumper design as it has no need for tailpipes, while the covered up grille has plenty of space to hide the sensors required for the car's new Advanced Driver Assistance System.

Audi RS3 sedan and hatch return delayed until 2020

Fans of Audi’s most affordable high-performance models will need to wait a little longer before the RS3 sedan and hatch return to Australian showrooms. Audi stopped production of the Audi RS3 twins in late 2018 while the company had to redo the certification process to meet Europe’s real-world fuel economy tests known as WLTP (worldwide harmonised light vehicle test).
