2018 Volvo XC40 aiming to match BMW X1 sales in Australia

Built on Volvo's all-new CMA platform - Compact Modular Architecture - the 2018 Volvo XC40 is, according to head office executives, the vehicle that can deliver Volvo much needed global volume. In fact, according to Alexander Petrovski, boss of Volvo's 40-Series models, the XC40 can even deliver volume for the brand even in Australia. "We believe we can sell up to 4000 of these vehicles [per year] in Australia," Petrovski said. "We have very high expectations."

2018 Lexus LS: Australian details

Some key details about the local version of fifth-generation Lexus LS were revealed at the car's international launch this week. The new LS will arrive in Australian showrooms from April 2018 with two drivetrain options: the LS500 with a new 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6, and the LS500h with the same Multi-Stage Hybrid setup we first saw in the LC coupe. The LS350 and its naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 is currently reserved for "price sensitive" markets, and won't be available in Australia.

Mercedes-Benz says ‘yes' to flying cars
