2014-15 Ssangyong Stavic recalled

Ateco Australia has issued a recall notice for 340 examples of the Ssangyong Stavic people mover, over concerns about worn ball joints. The company says the joints could fail if cars are “operated for extended periods of time without any inspection or repair”. According to Ateco, the issue specifically affects cars with high mileage or vehicles that have faced “specific severe conditions”, and could lead to the ball joints failing, causing “loss of control of the vehicle”.

2018 Audi A1 spied

The next-generation Audi A1 has been spied during development testing, giving us an early glimpse at the German marque's upcoming light hatch. Despite the heavy camouflage, it's pretty clear that the A1's shape will be an evolution of the current car, not a revolution - much like the rest of Audi's latest designs. Trainspotters will notice fresh interpretations of Audi's front grill and headlight designs, both of which are more angular and aggressive than the current model.

Kia Stinger sales off to strong start in hunt for 500 monthly sales

Kia Australia is expecting its new Stinger performance car to reach 200 sales in October alone - its first, incomplete month on the market - despite the car's official marketing campaign still being months away from kickoff. Helping that hot start, according to chief operating officer Damien Meredith, is that the company has allocated a Stinger to each of its 127 dealers, giving the car clear exposure to potential buyers.

2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante unveiled

The 2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante has been revealed this week, dropping the top off the British GT . Unlike the DB11 coupe, which is offered with a choice of V8 or V12 engines, the Volante will only be available with the AMG-derived twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet in an attempt to keep weight down. The 4.0-litre engine in the Volante makes the same 375kW of power and 675Nm of torque you get in the coupe, put to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
