Toyota Yaris compact SUV spied

Toyota appears to be making progress on its new pint-sized SUV based on the next generation Yaris, if these spy photos taken during winter testing are a guide. It's unlikely the new model will share the same body as this Toyota Yaris with raised suspension and bolder bodywork (as pictured above). Rather this test car is simply being used as an elaborate disguise before the SUV-bodied mules are built.

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.
