GM: Millennial disinterest in cars is a ‘myth’

General Motors says the popular conception that millennials are not interested in owning a car, or have no desire to get their driver's licence, is a media myth that holds little relevance when put up against its own internal data.

BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo pricing and specs

The ultra-niche BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo (GT) will hit Australia in November this year, to complement the shorter 5 Series sedan and wagon range. BMW's undoubtedly slicker successor to the polarising and moderately taller 5 Series GT retains the signature higher hip point, hatchback tailgate and stretched wheelbase (3070mm) to grow rear legroom - a key to doing well in China, its main market.

2018 Volkswagen Amarok V6 gets 3.5-tonne tow rating

An upgrade for the new model year has led to the 2018 Volkswagen Amarok V6 ute being given a 3500kg braked towing allowance - up from the 3000kg rating that still applies to previous examples. The new rating comes courtesy of engineering changes to the Amarok's rear step setup, and the availability of a 3.5-tonne genuine Volkswagen tow bar. The Amarok V6 is otherwise unchanged for the new model year, meaning its 165kW/550Nm diesel six carries over in its existing form.
