2021 KTM X-BOW GTX launched with radical 'jet fighter' canopy, confirmed for Australia

The 2021 KTM X-BOW GTX has been officially launched, equipped with a 'jet fighter' canopy and hypercar-rivalling power-to-weight figures. The external aesthetic is defined by exposed carbon fibre panelling, a large front splitter, and a gooseneck-mounted rear spoiler. To reduce drag on the KTM, traditional wing mirrors are replaced with rear-view cameras projecting to internal display screens.

2020 Jeep Gladiator receives three-star ANCAP safety rating

Australia's peak automotive safety body ANCAP has officially awarded the 2020 Jeep Gladiator a three-star safety rating, citing "lower than expected" levels of adult occupant and vulnerable road user protection as the reason for the score. Of the maximum five stars a car can receive, ANCAP issued the utility vehicle only three, based on 2019 testing of its SUV sibling, the Jeep Wrangler, as well as supplied technical evidence and in-house evaluation and modelling.

Toyota Mirai hydrogen Popemobile gifted to the Vatican

A Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel cell electric car has been converted into a Popemobile, and gifted the Vatican. Delivered on behalf of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Japan, the Toyota is 5.1 meters long and 2.7 meters tall at the highest point. However – unlike some previous iterations of the iconic vehicle – this Popemobile is not armoured. Instead, the pope sits on an exposed rear-mounted platform and is illuminated by an overhead LED system.
