Where did it all go wrong for Holden?

COMMENT Like all major disasters, the demise of Holden after 72 years in Australia is the result of a vast number of factors – some of which were out of its control. The problems go way beyond the use of the Commodore name on the imported model after local manufacturing ended in 2017 (the name probably helped not hindered sales), or the series of misguided TV advertisements and billboards that tried to radically change Holden’s image to appeal to a more cosmopolitan audience.

Pictured here in European trim, the 2021 Sorento will replace the third-generation car currently offered in Australia, going up against the Mazda CX-9 and related Hyundai Santa Fe.

Toyota confirms faster, stiffer Supra for Australia

Toyota Australia has confirmed the Supra is getting a power boost and tweaked suspension "towards the end of 2020". The existing BMW-sourced turbocharged inline-six engine carries over, but peak power jumps from 250kW to 285kW – peak torque remains unchanged at 500Nm. Under the skin, Toyota says the power upgrades will be paired with a reworked suspension and an under-bonnet stiffening brace designed to deliver "more track focused handling".
