Subaru Australia wants seven-seat Ascent, but it isn't happening

Subaru’s Ascent replaces the long-dead Tribeca atop its range, but don’t expect this Toyota Kluger and Mazda CX-9 rival on our shores any time soon, despite Subaru Australia’s wishes. Subaru Australia is keen to offer the new three-row Ascent locally, but a lack of right-hand drive (RHD) demand outside our tiny market is standing in the way of a profitable business case.

EV-promoting Helsinki singing taxi enters service

Ride sharing, driven by the rise of Uber and Lyft, has completely changed the taxi market, but this is a strange entry to the mobility market. Meet the Fortum Singalong Shuttle, an electric Helsinki taxi that accepts only singing as payment. This is an odd story, we realise.

2018 Mazda CX-8 pricing and specs: official

Mazda has finally revealed full specifications for its CX-8 diesel seven-seater, ahead of a July 1 on-sale date. The brand provided range pricing earlier this month, but what each grade of car offered was a mystery... until now. Perhaps unsurprisingly, final specs match those revealed in a dealer document leaked to CarAdvice earlier this year. The range kicks off with the Sport FWD ($42,490 before on-roads), jumping to the Sport AWD ($46,490) and topping out with the Asaki AWD ($61,490).
