Video: 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N caught track testing

The 2021 Hyundai i30 Sedan N has been caught track testing on the Nurburgring circuit. It comes after Hyundai announced the i30 Sedan for the Australian market, with the performance flagship N version teased for the first time in September. Now spies have filmed a camouflaged i30 Sedan N driving on the famous 20.83 kilometre-long German circuit ahead of the Hyundai's reveal. Despite the i30 Sedan replacing the Elantra locally, in other markets the model still carries the Elantra badge.

Sorry kids, Toyota says there won’t be a GR Yaris Cross – even though it looks good to go

The Toyota Yaris Cross city SUV looks ready for anything, with its high-riding stance and nimble appearance. Yes, we know this image above is an artist impression of what a possible tie-up with Subaru could look like. Fingers crossed that happens, because it could lead to a Toyota GR Yaris Cross. However, for now it seems Toyota has decided its newest model is not ready to handle the high-powered drivetrain from the Toyota GR Yaris hot hatch. Well, that's the official answer at least.

While it doesn’t claim the title of Australia’s cheapest dual-cab any more, a title held by the previous Great Wall Steed, the GWM Ute still has value on its side with a $33,990 drive-away offer for the entry-level Cannon specification.

Takata airbag recall to be extended if all cars aren’t found by December deadline

The automotive industry has vowed to continue replacing potentially deadly Takata airbags beyond the 31 December 2020 deadline if all 3.9 million devices across Australia are not replaced or accounted for. While the car industry says it is striving to replace or account for all airbags by the deadline imposed by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), it “won’t turn anyone away” beyond that date.
