2020 Audi RS3 pricing and specs

Audi's power-packed 2020 RS3 hatchback and sedan will go back on sale before the middle of 2020, after more than 12 months away from Australian showrooms. The compact Mercedes-AMG A45 rival has been absent since late 2018, when production delays caused by the rollout of strict new European emissions rules saw it removed from the local line-up. At its most popular, the RS3 accounted for around a quarter of all Audi A3 sales in Australia.

Milan's all-day car ban ignored by motorists

Milan authorities banned cars from driving within city limits for one full day in an effort to combat the Italian city's smog and pollution issues. Motorists in Milan were unable to drive cars in the city from 10am until 6pm on Sunday, February 2, instead relying on bikes, scooters and public transport to get around. But according to the BBC, Italian police had their hands full monitoring those not adhering to the 'Sunday walk' day, reportedly handing out 162 fines in under three hours.

Overseas reports claim Nissan is making aggressive cuts to plans made under former CEO and now fugitive Carlos Ghosn. A report from news agency Reuters claims that, in an aim to add 480 billion yen (A$6.55 billion) to the company’s bottom line by March 2023, Nissan is going to cut its global product range down to 62 vehicles by the end of 2022. Slower-selling and less profitable options and trims will also be removed from remaining products.
