Suzuki Celerio dropped, for now

The little Suzuki Celerio micro hatch has been dropped from the company's local line-up, with the company citing declining demand as the cause. One of the most affordable new cars available in the Australian market, starting at just $12,990 plus on-road costs, the Thai-sourced Celerio develops 50kW of power and 90Nm from its 1.0-litre aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine, mated to either a five-speed manual or a CVT automatic.

Volkswagen Golf GTI Original, Golf R Grid to sharpen Australian prices

New Volkswagen Golf GTI Original and Golf R Grid models will touch down in Australia soon, the German car maker has revealed. Both models will join their respective lines as new price leaders, opening the GTI and R badges up to buyers shopping on a tighter budget. In a strategy similar to that employed by BMW with the M3 Pure, Volkswagen has cut a few nonessentials from each model to bring down prices - although it is not yet detailing just what you'll miss out on.

BMW 1 Series sedan may come to Australia

Following news out of the US that the BMW 1 Series sedan may well be sold outside of its primary market, China, after all - it seems Australia could follow suit. A report from US industry journal Automotive News earlier this week suggested the 1 Series sedan could be sold in that country by 2019, going against the indication given by the German company when it unveiled the front-wheel-drive sedan, a model that was designed to be built in China, for Chinese buyers.
