2021 Hyundai Tucson spy photos

The new-generation 2021 Hyundai Tucson has been spied testing again this week, the first time since it was properly previewed at last year's Los Angeles motor show. Although the new Tucson had been caught in camouflage earlier in 2019, it was LA's Vision T plug-in hybrid concept that offered the best look yet at what we can expect from the new mid-sized SUV.

Toyota Yaris sold out, new more expensive model months away

The Toyota Yaris city hatch – one of Australia’s most popular and most affordable cars – has almost sold out and it will be months before its all-new replacement arrives. Fewer than 40 Toyota Yaris hatchbacks remain across the national network of more than 200 dealers and once they’re gone there won’t be a model to replace it until August at the earliest. Based on the monthly sales rate of the Toyota Yaris, these final 40 or so vehicles will be gone in the coming days.
