Where do we begin?!
The news, then, that every Audi SUV will spawn its own stylish sportback version came as little surprise. The news that fellow VW Group brand Bugatti is planning its own mega-SUV, though, did catch a few people off-guard. If you think the Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus are ostentatious…
Across the grounds, Volkswagen Australia announced that it’s agreed to a settlement with local owners who had taken part in a class action over Dieselgate, while the NSW government conceded that the road rule requiring drivers to slow to 40km/h past emergency workers actually needed a bit of fettling. In a rare moment of clarity over bureaucracy, it’s a better outcome across the board.
On the international front, we examined whether the recent Saudi oilfield attacks would affect local petrol prices, and whether 46,000 striking workers at GM’s US plants will have a knock-on affect on Holden’s product plans.
We’ve also been busy behind the wheel, too! We’ve done a deep dive on the stove-hot Tesla Model 3 Performance, taken the new Toyota Supra for a (not) leisurely drive on the drag strip (oh, and we’re a bit sick of people banging on about how much BMW is in the Supra), and bid the Aston Martin Rapide a fond farewell.
We don’t overlook the real-world stuff, though, with a first-drive review of the brand new Hyundai Venue SUV and the Peugeot 508 GT, a stint in the Holden Colorado and the new Volvo S60. Our range reviews, too, are a huge part of our commitment to bringing Aussie car buyers the most up-to-date info on the cars that they want to buy.
And as we look ahead towards the end of the footy season, we covered off just why everyone was so cranky after the recent Supercars race in New Zealand, revealed amazing photos of snow-covered race tracks in NSW (in September!) and met the most unusual tribute to the Holden Racing Team you’ve ever seen.
On top of all this great stuff, our social channels have been running red-hot as well. Make sure you head over to WhichCar’s or 4x4 Australia’s Facebook page, the Wheels and Motor insta accounts and Street Machine’s amazing YouTube channel.
