Tracking the new kids on the block: the rising star cars of 2020

Introducing an entirely new nameplate to an established – and, some would argue, saturated – Australian new-car market carries an inherent risk. With a multitude of choices already on offer, any new model needs to offer a compelling package to take on the already established nameplates within a segment.

Volkswagen says it has reached 'peak SUV', will other brands follow?

One of the world's biggest car makers, Volkswagen, believes it may have reached 'peak SUV'. As car buyers around the globe embrace high-riding hatchbacks, soft-roaders, and SUVs in place of conventional passenger cars, most of the big brands have seemingly filled every possible niche. Now a senior executive from Volkswagen has told media in the UK there is likely no room for any more SUVs in its line-up for the foreseeable future.

VW T-Roc R: Why Australia misses out on the hot hatch SUV

Here’s another car to add to the list of those that won’t be heading to Australia anytime soon due to our lower-grade fuel. The Volkswagen T-Roc R is effectively a Golf R hot hatch on stilts, but Australians will have to admire it from afar because it’s potent 2.0-litre turbo engine has not been calibrated to run on our premium unleaded. Australian regulations allow up to 50 parts per million of sulphur in our unleaded petrol, but in Europe the maximum sulphur content is just 10ppm.
