2021 Audi SQ2 revealed, Australian launch timing confirmed

The facelifted 2021 Audi SQ2 has been officially unveiled. The updated version of the smallest Audi S model currently on sale will make its way to Australian shores for the first time in mid-2021. The pre-facelift model was previously confirmed for our market in recent years, before it was delayed and ultimately ruled out. Updates to the SQ2 largely mirror those to the standard, non-performance Q2 in September.

Toyota Australia has issued a recall of 15 examples of its 2020 Hilux (MY20).

2021 Hyundai iMax people-mover, iLoad van spied in testing

UPDATE, 16 November 2020: The 2021 Hyundai iMax – the people mover variant of the Hyundai iLoad commercial van – has been caught with part of its rear camouflage missing. Images posted on Korean website Autospy show next-generation iMax sporting a rear spoiler, blockier LED tail-lights, and a slimmer rear bumper bar – which will assist in avoiding paint damage when loading bulky items into the iLoad's cargo area.
