Mazda: Volume shouldn't come first

Mazda says that despite being one of the smallest independent automotive brands in the world, the company cannot put volume ambitions as its first priority, with the recently-appointed global CEO admitting that such a goal would create the wrong culture internally. Speaking to the Australian media at the Los Angeles motor show last week, the president and CEO of Mazda, Akira Marumoto, said that in order for Mazda it survive it needs to be unique and put customer relationships above all else.

2019 Kia 'Ceed SUV' spied

Photographers have snapped images of a mystery Kia crossover prototype doing rounds in Europe, believed to be based on the Ceed hatchback. In terms of size, the new Kia SUV slots between the Rio-based Stonic and the larger Sportage, making it around the same size as the Hyundai Kona and Ford Focus Active. A clear link to the Ceed can be seen at the front, with the slim 'tiger nose' grille and aggressive headlights looking very much like the Euro-market hatch and wagon.

Audi avoiding the race to 'peak grille' - report

Audi has pulled itself out of the battle of the front-end bulge, suggesting the way forward with its styling is to be smarter with grille design. As the likes of Lexus, BMW, Toyota and Genesis (check out this G90 snout) chase greater road presence by making their grilles bigger, the head designer from Ingolstadt has told Car Throttle it's not about the "big mouth" anymore. Instead, we can expect to see Audi playing around with colours, trims and body panels to make its cars stand out.

Road Vehicle Standards Act: New rules passed for imports, recalls

There are new rules for the motor vehicle industry in Australia, after Federal Parliament passed the Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 last week as a replacement for the Motor Vehicle Standards Act of 1989. The legislation passed both houses of parliament this week, but the rules won't start coming into force until late in 2019. The Motor Vehicle Standards Act was last updated in 2001.
