2020 Land Rover Defender 110 pricing and specs

The 2020 Land Rover Defender will be priced below $70,000 before on-road costs when it arrives in Australia, but you'll be able to pay upwards of $135,000 for a top-spec model. That makes even the base 2020 Defender more expensive than the limited-run Defender 110 Adventure Edition revealed in 2015, and pricier than the range-topping Jeep Wrangler.

Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda are recalling a total of more than 80,000 cars with DSG dual clutch automatic gearboxes because some are slipping into “limp home” mode and can’t be restarted without the help of a mechanic armed with diagnostics equipment. The latest DSG recall – yet to be announced on the Federal Government’s recall website – includes about 62,000 Volkswagens, 14,000 Audis and 4500 Skodas.

Volkswagen Group could sell Lamborghini - report

The Volkswagen Group is considering selling or publicly listing Lamborghini, as it looks to consolidate its sprawling collection of brands. According to a report from Bloomberg, the Volkswagen Group wants to spend money more efficiently and stop crossover from brands under the 'group' umbrella. Part of that plan involves separating Lamborghini from the group by the end of 2020, the report says. "We shouldn’t spread ourselves too thin," Diess told the Suddeutsche Zeitung.

Toyota LQ concept revealed

The Toyota LQ concept has been revealed ahead of its in-the-flesh debut at the 2019 Tokyo motor show later this month. The LQ is a development of the Concept-i, which was unveiled at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. While both cars share the same design theme and silhouette, the LQ seems to be closer production reality as it has functioning door handles and wing mirrors.
