Configurator Challenge: 2020 Land Rover Defender

Customisation is in vogue at the moment, but choice can be seriously confusing. In our configurator challenge, we let the CarAdvice team loose on a manufacturer’s website to create their ideal spec of a certain model. This week, we've taken on the 2020 Land Rover Defender. Let us know what you think in the comments, and which cars you’d like to see next! Alright. Cards on the table, I wish this was a '90' but Land Rover won't let us configure that yet.

Volvo Australia introduces capped-price servicing

Volvo Car Australia has introduced capped-price servicing across its range, addressing one of the biggest concerns about its SUVs, wagons and sedans. The new plans pull Volvo's maintenance pricing into closer alignment with BMW, although the German brand is still cheaper. Three years or 45,000km of servicing for the S60, V60 and XC40 is priced at $1595, and it'll cost $1795 to maintain the petrol XC60 and XC90. Servicing for the XC60, XC90 and V90 Cross Country diesels costs $1895.

Driverless cars? Years away, says Mercedes

Auto and tech companies which made bold assertions driverless cars are right around the corner underestimated the difficulties in producing them, and the industry should now be understanding how complex and remarkable human brains really are behind the wheel.
