2021 MG 5 sedan revealed in Beijing - UPDATE: Australia confirmed

UPDATE, November 11, 2020: The Thai-built MG 5 sedan is now on the cards for Australia, in petrol form, confirmed at the local launch of the MG ZS EV electric SUV. There are no other details available at this time, however, with timing and pricing still to be finalised – although a price position to undercut rivals like the Toyota Corolla and Kia Cerato is likely.

A league of their own – the world's most powerful production cars

Although plenty of us won’t get a chance to plough down the Nürburgring or get behind the wheel of a hypercar in our lifetimes, it’s hard to deny our obsession with all things high-performance.

As we embark on a new decade of development, it’s safe to say the quest for perfection is far from over.

2020 Lexus ES300h price and specs: Standard safety gets a boost

The 2020 Lexus ES300h has had a minor tweak to specifications, improving the mid-size luxury sedan's low-speed safety credentials, while also rolling out moderate price rises at the same time. As part of the specification change from Lexus, all variants from the entry level ES300h up add Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Braking (RCTA-B), to complement the existing Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Parking Support Brake systems already fitted.
