Ford Ranger Australia’s number one vehicle in September

Here’s something nobody would have predicted a few years ago: the Ford Ranger ute was Australia’s number-one selling new vehicle in September. The Australia-developed light commercial trumped its Toyota HiLux nemesis, and regular market-toppers such as the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3, with 4318 monthly sales — 87 per cent of which were more expensive 4x4s versions.

GM: Millennial disinterest in cars is a ‘myth’

BMW X3 M40i coming to Australia soon

BMW Australia will finally get its hands on a real rival to the Audi SQ5 and Mercedes-AMG GLC43 performance SUVs from mid-2018, priced to match the pair at around $100,000 and primed to beat them from 0-100km/h. This is because the third-generation BMW X3 range, which launches in 'regular' $68,900 20d, $75,900 30i and $83,900 30d forms in Australia in early November, also comes with a new range-topping M Performance variant called the X3 M40i.

Study shows driving dehydrated similar to having blood alcohol content of 0.08

A study from 2015 has shown that driving while dehydrated leads to the same outcomes as driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 per cent. The 2015 study published in Physiology and Behaviour was carried out on a selection of male drivers by the UK's Loughborough University and funded by the European Hydration Institute. Over the course of two days, the drivers were put through an array of tests, including using a driver simulator.
