2019 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport unveiled

The Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport was unveiled overnight sporting not only 30 extra kilowatts, but also natural-fibre composite body parts. The new Clubsport is powered by dry sump 3.8-litre flat-six engine making 313kW of power at 7500rpm, and 425Nm of torque 6600rpm. All of that is channelled to the rear wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch transmission and a race-optimised mechanical rear differential lock.

Toyota Australia plans huge hybrid expansion

Toyota Australia (TMCA) is aiming for one-in-five of all vehicles it sells to be fuel-saving petrol-electric hybrid cars, within a time frame of just two years. Based on current sales volumes, this equates to about 42,000 sales of Toyota hybrid cars in 2020, figures that seemed scarcely plausible even a few years ago given Australia’s slow take-up of environmentally friendly cars.

2019 Ssangyong Tivoli facelift spied

The updated Ssangyong Tivoli has been spied ahead of its debut some time in 2019. There's a lot of cladding at the front of the vehicle, but we can definitely say the updated car will have new headlight graphics and a refashioned bumper with round fog lights. Beyond that it seems there will be a revised grille, probably a redesigned bonnet and maybe a reworked set of front quarter panels.
