LDV D90 diesel coming to Australia

The all-new LDV D90 large SUV may not have launched yet, but CarAdvice can confirm the Chinese-made model is set to battle both the petrol and diesel parts of the market ... but not until 2019, it seems. Roger Zagorski, managing director of Ateco Automotive - the company that distributes LDV models in Australia - said at the unveiling of the 2018 LDV T60 ute that the company is on track to introduce the all-new LDV D90 SUV in November.

LDV T60 Off Road ute confirmed

A high-riding, off-road-ready version of the 2018 LDV T60 ute has been confirmed. It is expected that the flagship model will be a production-ready version of the LDV T60 Off Road - a sort-of Ranger Wildtrak model to the Chinese brand's brigade of utes, offering buyers a range-topping model that has rough-and-tumble looks and extra all-terrain cred.

MG GS: first Chinese car to get ANCAP five-star rating

Crash safety scorer ANCAP has awarded the updated 2017 MG GS crossover SUV a five-star rating - the first time a vehicle from China has hit the mark. It's a fairly significant milestone, given we're seeing a steady rise in the number of China-made brands and vehicles on offer. Previous Chinese cars tested by ANCAP, which failed to cut the mustard, include the four-star Haval H9 (2015), three-star LDV G10 (2015) and two-star Great Wall Steed (2016).
