Subaru doubles-down on shopping centre presence

Subaru Australia's importer Inchcape is broadening its strategy to offer buyers an alternative to brick-and-mortar dealerships, with three new temporary pop-up shops now open. The new transactional pop-ups are designed to show-off the new Subaru XV, and follow on from its rollout of Impreza-based applications. They're in Eastland shopping centre in Melbourne, Westfield Chatswood in Sydney and the Queen Street Mall in Brisbane.

Mini rules out smaller cars for now, but hints at future 'Rocketman' EV

Mini has no active plan to develop anything smaller than its cornerstone hatch — and closer to the iconic 1950/60s original that everyone knows and loves — because the business case doesn’t add up in today’s landscape. However, the BMW-owned company concedes that the ever-growing hatch “shouldn’t get any bigger” than the current third-generation F56 iteration, which is about 20cm longer than the first reborn model from 2001, and 80cm or so longer than the ‘60s models.
