Alex Misoyannis • Skoda’s fourth-generation Octavia wagon has been spied testing in Europe, ahead of a likely unveil at the Frankfurt motor show in September.
The development vehicle spotted in the mountains was dressed in a plethora of fake panels, concealing the final design without drawing excess attention like a conventional prototype might.
The 2020 BMW 5 Series facelift has once again been spied, this time in sedan guise.
As with the Touring we spied last week, the new 5 Series sedan wears what appears to be a mildly-revised front end. The lights have been reworked to feature a signature in keeping with the latest 3 Series, while the kidney grille is heavily camouflaged.
Alex Misoyannis • Pininfarina’s first independent model, the Battista, has entered the final stages of testing, ahead of its European market launch in 2020.
The famous Italian firm is conducting final tuning on its all-electric hypercar. Work is being done in the wind tunnel, through computer modelling and on the simulator to refine the car’s aero package, minimise drag over the body, and increase cooling.
Alex Misoyannis • Want to get your hands on a new Toyota Supra, but missed out on the first allocation? Toyota has announced the order books will re-open on July 7 at midday, Melbourne and Sydney time.
Just 100 examples of the Japanese sports coupe (and its German heart) will be up for grabs on Wednesday, with customers able to choose between GT and GTS model grades.
Look at the VFACTS rundown of large SUVs under $70,000, and there are 23 listed. It ranges from options as varied as the Jeep Wrangler to the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace.
It's wide, varied and competitive – SUV is a term without any real strict definition. The leader, by a long shot, is the Toyota Prado. The fourth best-selling unit amongst this set is the somewhat humble Isuzu MU-X, which we are driving today.
Alex Misoyannis • BMW’s upcoming competitor to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, the 4 Series, has been spied in transit on a truck in Germany.
While most of the coupe’s finer styling details are concealed under swirled camouflage, it’s evident the new 4 Series will adapt the latest 3 Series design language to a more dynamic body style.
Thankfully, the Kona Electric is very good in the cut-and-thrust of traffic. To start with, electric cars are perfect for low speed, stop-and-start crawling. The Kona EV makes 395Nm of torque from standstill, and it's delivered with a brand of buttery smoothness no internal-combustion engine could possibly match.

From the 1958 Chrysler Imperial with cruise control to the Tesla Model S equipped with Autopilot, cars continue to advance and remove the driver from the equation. When it comes to going from A to B, drivers are the biggest problem on the road - we’re only human. But no matter how advanced the car, it needs the help of its surroundings to know what's around the corner.
