Audi RS3 spy photos, current model returns to showrooms next month

The next generation Audi RS3 has been caught on camera in production bodywork wearing little disguise while testing at Germany’s Nurburgring race circuit – ahead of its local showroom arrival in late 2021 or early 2022. The spy photos show the successor to one of the world’s fastest hot hatches – which currently has a 0 to 100kmh time of about four seconds – has retained the same formula that has made the current model so successful.

Hyundai says Australia at a “standstill” on vehicle emissions regulations

Australia is at a “standstill” when it comes to bringing its emissions standards into line with the rest of the world, with one senior car company executive claiming: “I can’t find anyone in Canberra to talk about it”. Hyundai’s senior manager for future mobility and government relations, Scott Nargar, has revealed Australia came close to upgrading current Euro V emissions standards – which are now 10 years behind Europe – in the lead-up to this year’s Federal election.

Is my new car economical? How does a Mazda 3 compare to other small cars?

No surprise: Fuel consumption is a key consideration for many Australian new car buyers, primarily because it tends to directly affect your weekly budget and spend. And fair enough. If you think of a car which averages 10L/100km, driven 15,000km a year and filling up at $1.25 per litre, it will cost you about $1875 per year. That’s about two-and-a-half times the annual registration fee, and potentially 10 times the yearly service cost of a small car like a Toyota Corolla.
