Nissan Terra still unlikely for Australia

The Nissan Terra is no closer to being introduced in Australia – in this generation or beyond – because the cost to upgrade it to meet local standards is for now deemed prohibitively expensive. The Nissan Terra is a seven-seat four-wheel-drive based on the Navara ute and went on sale overseas last year. It is a direct rival to other ute-based seven-seat four-wheel drives such as the Isuzu MU-X(D-Max), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (Triton), Ford Everest (Ranger) and Holden Trailblazer (Colorado).

Volkswagen debuts updated 'R' logo

R is for “revamped” and “refreshed”, even a little bit “rakish”. Those words describe the new logo for Volkswagen’s R and R-Line models. Another descriptor would be “heavily stylised” as some observers mightn’t immediately recognise it as being a letter 'R'. Designed in-house, it’s intended to be “modern, distinct and sleek”. It arguably meets those criteria and is also reportedly more suitable for digital media.

2020 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster revealed

The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster has been revealed in near-production form ahead of its global launch next year. In photos released overnight, the British luxury sports car maker showed off the new convertible with a badge-free body and a matte black wrap. From the firewall forward, the Vantage convertible looks like it will be identical to the coupe. Behind this point there's a new folding soft-top, and a rounder side window shape.
