Hyundai Venue not a 'like-for-like replacement' for Accent

The Venue may be the Hyundai's new entry-level offering Down Under, but the local division doesn't see it as a direct replacement for the now-discontinued Accent light hatch. Despite having built its brand on value-packed affordable cars, the Korean brand says the new sub-compact crossover – which starts at $19,990 before on-road costs – isn't meant to be an Accent successor. "We don't see this as a like-for-like volume replacement for Accent," said J.W. Lee, CEO for Hyundai Australia.

2020 Audi A1 citycarver revealed, 'unlikely' for Australia

Audi has unveiled the A1 citycarver, a higher-riding version of its compact A1 hatchback, ahead of its European launch later this year. Although they share a lot mechanically, the citycarver has a suspension setup that's 35mm taller than the regular A1's, while the wheels are bigger as standard. In ideal circumstances, Audi says the citycarver has 40mm more ground clearance than the standard A1.
