2022 Volkswagen Amarok teased: Ford Ranger-based ute coming

A first look at the upcoming 2022 Volkswagen Amarok has been handed down, hinting at a meaner design for its second generation. Developed in partnership with Ford, the new Amarok ute will take most of its engineering and architecture from the Ranger project – while Volkswagen takes the lead on vans for both companies. The Amarok's familiar boxy look appears set to continue with the new model, while the front end takes its cues from models like the Tiguan and T-Roc SUVs.

2011-2014 Kia Carnival recalled over petrol leak potential

Kia has announced a recall for its 'VQ' Carnival, across the 2011 to 2014 model years. Affecting 12,123 vehicles in Australia, the recall is regarding the potential for a small heat-induced crack to appeal in the fuel rail of petrol models. In the event a crack appears, a fuel leak could result, which could lead to fire and/or a leak onto the road, increasing risk of harm to occupants and other road users.
