VFACTS: June 2018 new vehicle sales

Australia’s new vehicle sales in June this year couldn’t quite match the record tally over the same month in 2017, but 130,300 units over 26 selling days is nothing to sneeze at.

Audi could be working on Q9 flagship - report

The Audi Q8 may have just launched to sit at the pinnacle of the brand's SUV tree, but there could be a new king of Audi 'Qs' should the market demand it – according to a new report out of the UK.
