In this episode, Mandy is joined by Mike Costello and James Wong, with Anthony Crawford chiming in to run through the latest in automotive news and what’s happening at the CarExpert offices around Australia.

    This week in car news, the team talks about the BMW 128ti reveal, Mazda ruling out an off-road wagon based on the Isuzu MU-X, Genesis delaying the construction of its Melbourne boutique until 2021, and new leaks claiming the next-gen 2021 Subaru BRZ will go without turbocharging.

    Mike Costello reports on September’s VFACTS results, in yet another tough month for new vehicle sales, and also pits the Jeep Compass S-Limited against the Kia Seltos GT-Line.

    Finally, Anthony Crawford dials in to talk about his on-track prototype drive of the upcoming Hyundai i20 N hot hatch.
