People often say “don’t forget where you came from”. Although we’re focused on every new car, every last detail here at CarAdvice, we have an extensive back-catalogue of news stories, lifestyle yarns and reviews.
Here’s a look at what happened on the week of June 5 in years past.
Personalisation is popular in small cars at the moment, with a growing number of manufacturers offering colourful design elements and packages to help buyers make their vehicle stand out. Nissan has pushed that idea to a new level with the Kicks Color Studio.
Fiat Chrysler has recalled the 2016-2018 Alfa Romeo Giulietta, over concerns drivers could deactivate the passenger-side airbag using the instrument panel.
According to the company, the passenger airbag may not deploy if the driver has disabled or switched it off using the menus in the car's instrument panel. The ability to turn the airbag off like this shouldn't exist, Alfa Romeo says, and increases the risk of injury if the car is involved in an accident.
It doesn't have a three-pointed star on the nose, but the 2019 Ford Ranger has taken down the Mercedes-Benz X-Class in this week's poll.
A whopping 65 per cent of voters favoured the updated Ranger, which now packs autonomous emergency braking and a bi-turbo 2.0-litre diesel option, over the first-ever X-Class.
The rumoured revival of the Dodge Viper has been shut down by the CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Sergio Marchionne.
Speaking with media during the group's mid-term presentation for its investors, Marchionne ruled out a third-generation of the Dodge supercar, saying "it's not in the plan".
"[It] didn't make money, and wouldn't work with a "cute" Euro-style engine," he added.
