Next Mazda BT-50 might be HiLux-based

The growing global joint-venture between Mazda and Toyota could have implications for Australia’s massive light commercial sector. There are whispers that the next Mazda BT-50 one-tonne ute could be twinned with the Toyota HiLux, rather than the Ford Ranger as it is at present. Ford and Mazda have made utes together for multiple generations — Ford used to have a large interest in the Japanese brand — and are partners in an AutoAlliance plant in Thailand that makes the BT-50 and Ranger.

GM CEO promises more right-hand-drive vehicles

General Motors CEO Mary Barra has promised a “more planned and very proactive” approach to the development and production of right-hand-drive vehicles going forward, to ensure Holden can offer Australians the best of GM’s global portfolio. The unavailability of right-hand-drive vehicles of all shapes and sizes has been a long-running frustration for Holden, which believes it could have great success with a number of GM models that are currently only built with a steering wheel on the left.

Next Renault Koleos to grow up, get seven seat option

Aston Martin DB11 name confirmed, 2016 unveiling locked in

Aston Martin has confirmed its production supercar series will skip the DB10 badge given over to superspy James Bond, leapfrogging the number all-together. Instead, fans can look forward to Aston’s next hero wearing a DB11 badge, revealed at today’s Frankfurt motor show as a stylised badge against a simple black background.
