Kia Australia announces 2019 AO Editions

Kia Australia has announced a new trio of Australian Open Special Editions for the upcoming 2019 tennis grand slam, including the local debut of the crossover-styled Picanto X-Line. Introduced after unprecedented demand for the micro hatch, the Picanto X-Line trades the sporting look of the GT-Line for a more adventurous aesthetic, donning 15mm raised suspension, contrasting plastic cladding with skid plate-style treatments at the front and rear, along with unique 16-inch alloy wheels.

Ford Ranger Raptor campaign falls foul of advertising standards

Ford's current Ranger Raptor commercial has joined the list of advertisements banned for showing reckless driving. The news comes just two weeks after Volkswagen had its tongue-in-cheek 'Too Powerful for TV' campaign banned by the Advertising Standards Bureau. According to the board, the Raptor advertisement features driving that would "constitute unsafe driving" and contained "reckless" practices.

2019 Porsche Macan Turbo spied sans camouflage

The facelifted Porsche Macan Turbo has been spied devoid of any camouflage, giving us a clear look at the upcoming performance hero ahead of an anticipated reveal before the end of the year. Not much really distinguishes this vehicle from the standard facelifted Macan revealed in July, though there's a larger cutout spanning the width of the front bumper, along with the large squared-off tailpipe finishers sticking out of the rear.
