HSV to unveil modified Colorado on Friday December 8: Vehicles spied on transporter

HSV is set to take the wraps off its modified HSV Colorado on Friday December 8 according to a Facebook post by the Clayton based company. As exclusively revealed by CarAdvice in July this year, the HSV-fettled Colorado will feature styling changes only, with the engine to remain unchanged. A recent trademark registration by Walkinshaw Performance also appears to be the likely contender for the car's name. A picture of a HSV Colorado was sent in to us by a CarAdvice reader.

Mercedes-Benz puts autonomous tech to the test in Australia

Mercedes-Benz is putting autonomous technology through testing in Aussie conditions, to better understand some of the quirks of our roads. Along with more information about the flashing, variable-speed signs becoming prevalent on our highways, the test route – from Sydney to Melbourne, via Canberra and Albury – will also look to hone the way self-driving systems deal with wombats, koalas, emus and kangaroos crossing the road.

Video: Watch a Formula E car take on a cheetah

Formula E has lined John-Eric Vergne up alongside a cheetah, as part of a unique promotional stunt. Designed to highlight the burgeoning race series' eco-credentials, the video draws attention to the fact cheetahs are at threat of extinction. According to National Geographic, the already-low population is at risk of declining by a further 53 per cent over the next 14 years.

Holden won't extend temporary seven-year warranty offer

Holden isn't planning to extend its current promotional seven year /175,000km warranty beyond the scheduled December 31 end date. From January 1, 2018, the company will once again offer only three years/100,000km of free cover for buyers, leaving them to negotiate the cost of an extended warranty if they want more. The Lion brand has been running the extended warranty campaign on all models, to help its brand marketing following the factory closure last month.
