Semiconductor shortage hits Volkswagen Golf, Tiguan and Touareg; Amarok has logistics delays

Volkswagen customers in Australia are likely to experience delivery delays of key models – such as the new Golf hatch, updated Tiguan mid-size SUV, and large Touareg family SUV – caused by the global semiconductor shortage. Other popular brands such as Hyundai, Kia and Nissan have recently notified dealers of severe stock shortages in the coming months, while market leader Toyota claims it is largely unaffected other than delays caused by a surge in demand.

Skoda sales surge by 54 per cent in early 2021

Australians purchased 83,977 cars in February 2021, with 835 of those from Czech car maker Skoda. While that sounds like a relatively diminutive slice of the pie, there's a bigger story to be told about the still-somewhat-undiscovered gem in the Volkswagen Group crown. In fact, Skoda's February 2021 sales reflect an almost 54 per cent increase on where it was this time last year, and a 655 per cent increase on where it was this time 10 years ago.

Brand new small SUVs coming in 2020

Small SUVs. You might love the idea of a higher-riding hatchback, or you might think they’re a convenient way for car brands to sell ostensibly compact cars at a markup. Either way, ongoing demand means the market for this type of vehicle remains abuzz with new offerings. Australia is no exception. The market share of Small SUVs was 13.1 per cent in 2019, while in January this year the newly separated Light and Small SUV segments commanded 15.9 per cent combined share.
