2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L begins Australian testing – UPDATE: Undisguised spy pics!

UPDATE, 2 February 2021: The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee L has been spied testing again on local roads – this time free of camouflage. In fact, the dark red example spotted in Melbourne by CarAdvice's own James Ward is the same right-hand-drive prototype photographed last week, complete with identical Victorian registration. However, there's little of note beneath the camouflage, given the Grand Cherokee L was revealed in full in January 2021. Our original story continues below.

It's official: Australians are still committed to diesel cars

Despite car companies shifting their attentions elsewhere, a whopping 2.6 million Australians still drive a diesel car – representing roughly 16 per cent of the nation's 16.2 million-strong fleet. According to new Roy Morgan data, diesel is second only to petrol in popularity, with petrol cars making up 80 per cent of the vehicles on Australia's roads.

Volkswagen and Audi merge operations in Australia

Volkswagen and Audi will soon be managed from under the same roof, with the two companies announcing they will combine operations in Australia.

The other iconic Australian cars that fetched big money at auction this weekend

While the huge amount of money paid for the ‘last’ locally-made Holden Commodore and a HSV GTSR W1 Maloo are still sinking in after yesterday’s auction, some other iconic Australian cars also fetched mega bucks. Bids for a HSV GTSR W1 sedan – in dark grey, number 9 of 300 built, and with just 149km on the odometer – reached $407,000 before the car was pushed away for negotiations to continue behind closed doors. It is unclear if this car was passed in or if the seller agreed to let it go.
