Toyota Yaris GRMN five-door spied

A five-door version of the Toyota Yaris GRMN hot hatch has been spied during development testing in Europe this week. When it was first revealed at the Geneva motor show in March, Toyota said the production companion to the Yaris WRC car would only be made available in three-door form like the vehicle that debuted at the event, however, these latest images suggest otherwise.

Australians keep shunning little cars

Sales of light vehicles continue to plummet as buyers increasingly turn elsewhere, either to larger passenger cars, small crossover SUVs or late-model used offerings. Sales figures compiled by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) show that sales of light cars are down 20.8 per cent this year, compared to the overall market decline of 2.8 per cent.

First car ever to get a speeding fine, heading to UK Concours of Elegance

The first car to ever receive a speeding fine - according to one claim, at least - will be on display at the 2017 Concours of Elegance in the UK. In 1896, the Arnold Benz Motor Carriage was estimated to be speeding at four times the limit, at a blistering 8mph (13km/h), when a policeman on a bicycle pulled him over.

Honda Civic hatch, why no Magic Seats?

The all-new Honda Civic hatch may be one of the most practical cars in its segment, but it lacks a crucial item that used to be standard: Magic Seats. The Honda Magic Seats system in the previous-generation Civic hatch would allow the seat bases to be folded up to allow a large storage area, and the seat backs could also be folded down flat for extra convenience. To see just how clever they are, check out our video on the ninth-gen Civic hatch.

Honda Australia hoping for a large SUV and ute, but chances are slim

Why do left-hand drive markets get all the good models? That must be what Honda Australia’s senior management is thinking, because it’s missing out on two models that could be vital to it growing its sales Down Under. The two models we’re talking about are the Pilot large SUV and the Ridgeline pick-up/ute, both of which aren’t built in right-hand drive. The market in North America is big enough to sustain both of them, just in left-hand drive.
