Senator calls to end "punishing" new car taxes

Controversial senator David Leyonhjelm has called for the Federal Government to end "punishing layers of taxation" making new cars more expensive. The Liberal Democrats Senator argues the five per cent import tariffs on cars from nations without an Australian free-trade agreement, along with the 33 per cent luxury car tax (LCT) on vehicles over $65,000, keep buyers out of new cars with the latest safety equipment.

Porsche explains Mission E Cross Turismo design – Video

Porsche split opinion with the Mission E Cross Turismo, unveiled earlier this year in Geneva. Following on from the stunning, slinky Mission E Concept, the high-riding electric car had big shoes to fill. Some obvious design elements have carried over, like the quad-LED daytime-running lights and rounded nose, but there's more linking the Cross Turismo with the Mission E – not to mention the wider Porsche range – than you might have otherwise realised.

Volkswagen: Tiguan Allspace hunting Santa Fe, Sorento

Volkswagen has its sights set on the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento with its Tiguan Allspace seven-seater, set to touch down in July. It might look like a regular Tiguan on the outside, but the Allspace is 215mm longer than the five-seater, supported by a 109mm increase in wheelbase. Volkswagen Australia's product manager, Glenn Reid, says the seven- and five-seat variants were designed side-by-side for a more "harmonious" range.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR pricing and specs

Jaguar Australia has sharpened its pencil and announced pricing for the F-Pace SVR, which kicks off at $140,020 before on-road costs. The hotted-up super-SUV, powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 404kW and 680Nm on tap, is $36,600 more expensive than the existing F-Pace S flagship. Given it's carrying two extra cylinders, 124kW more and the glamour of an SVR badge, that doesn't seem like too steep an increase.

2019 Toyota Prius leaked

The facelifted Toyota Prius has surfaced in the Japan's Best Car magazine this week, previewing an upcoming mid-life refresh for the Japanese hybrid. It's worth remembering, these could just be a set of renders commissioned by the popular Japanese magazine, but past form on the Toyota Supra would suggest they're accurate.
