Holden Astra sedan, Sportwagon axed

Holden has removed the best-selling Astra variant, the sedan, from its line-up, with no clear successor in sight. The slow-selling Sportwagon has also been dropped from the range, although both cars will still appear online and in showrooms while remaining stock is shifted. Speaking with CarAdvice, a Holden spokesperson said the company has been managing stock closely and dealers "weren't exactly overburdened" with cars at last check, so we'd suggest neither model will be available for long.

Fisker electric crossover reveal set for December

Fisker will unveil its Tesla Model Y rival in December this year, with a price below US$40,000 ($57,000) when it reaches production late in 2021. Based on the image above, we can see the SUV's rear will be quite boxy, while the tail-lights look like a slimmer take on the latest Land Rover units. Meanwhile, the C-pillar is home to a high-set indicator repeater, and there are LED strips in the pop-out door handles.
