2021 Audi A3 sedan unveiled, Australian launch locked in

The 2021 Audi A3 sedan has finally broken cover about one month after its hatchback sibling was unveiled in Europe. The new Audi A3 hatch and sedan are due in Australian showrooms in the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021 respectively, unless factory shutdowns during COVID-19 lockdowns delay those plans. In addition to adopting the Audi A3 hatchback's bold lines, the Audi A3 sedan will also share engines and technology.

Tiny Tesla camera catches vandal who scratched car with a key

A hidden camera – built into the bodywork of a new Tesla – has caught a vandal who “keyed” a car in a Sydney shopping centre parking lot. One of eight tiny cameras – now standard on most new Tesla electric cars – captured vision of a woman who approached the vehicle before dragging a key along the bodywork, causing a deep scratch into the paintwork. The Tesla – either a Model 3 or Model S sedan – had been programmed by its owner to be in “sentry mode” when parked.

New Hyundai Sonata due in Australia late 2020

The new generation Hyundai Sonata will be in Australian showrooms at the end of 2020 – about a year later than originally planned. While the 2021 Hyundai Sonata sedan will likely receive attention for its bold styling – with triangular daytime running lights that blend into the accent lines either side of the bonnet – it will initially be missing one of the key ingredients that has made the current model so popular in Australia.
