Jaguar reveals smarter 'Sensory Steering Wheel'

Jaguar Land Rover has taken a regular, everyday heated steering wheel and turned the technology on its head. Rather than roasting your palms on a chilly morning, the Sensory Steering Wheel uses two heating elements to tell drivers when and where to turn. Developed alongside Glasgow University, the wheel has elements on both sides of the wheel capable of warming or cooling its section by six degrees. Driver would be able to control how warm the wheel gets, if that's too much.

Volkswagen Golf Mk8 Australian launch delayed to Q4, 2020

The Australian launch of Volkswagen’s vital new eighth-generation Golf has been pushed back by around 10 weeks, with the expected arrival time from its German factory now the fourth quarter of 2020. The news is contrary to what VW told us in March, after news emerged that the Mk8’s global rollout was being nudged back as its maker perfected the highly digitised and fully connected cabin.
