2017 Hyundai i30 expected to achieve five star safety rating

While vehicle safety is important across all segments, it's arguably family vehicles that require the closest attention to detail, which is why Hyundai is still making a call on final safety specifications for the all-new Hyundai i30. With the vehicle due to go on sale locally in April, Hyundai is yet to lock in a standard specification for the range, which means AEB may not be available on entry level models.

Nissan GT-R Nismo: a special car available from specially selected dealers only

This week’s arrival of the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo not only welcomed a new halo model to the range, it also marked the long awaiting launch of the Nismo brand in Australia. But even if you have the $299,000 plus on-roads, you won’t be able to walk into any Nissan dealer and buy one. There are only a handful dealers throughout Australia authorised to sell (and service) the GT-R including the Nismo version, according to Richard Emery, Nissan Australia CEO who spoke to CarAdvice recently.
