2017 Isuzu MU-X pricing and specs

The MY17 Isuzu MU-X update has arrived in Australia - before any other export market, and fewer than three months after the rugged seven-seat SUV's last running change, which brought a new Euro 5 diesel engine. The quickness of the local model launch reflects Australia's importance to Isuzu Ute. Despite a host of new rivals such as Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Holden Trailblazer, Ford Everest and Toyota Fortuner launching relatively recently, the humble MU-X outsold all of them last year.

2018 Holden Commodore 'VXR' spied

The Holden Commodore 'VXR' has been spied undergoing road testing in Germany, and despite being sold with Opel, Vauxhall and Buick badges elsewhere in the world, this prototype is wearing the Holden lion. It's not certain what the hottest variant yet of the next-generation Commodore will be known as, but it's almost certain it will be branded as the Opel Insignia OPC on the Continent, and the Vauxhall Insignia VXR in the UK.
