Qualcomm reveals new connected vehicle platform

American semiconductor giant Qualcomm has unveiled a concept car featuring its new connected vehicle platform, which it says will support a digital cockpit and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on a single chip.

It says the Snapdragon Ride Flex system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform will be the automotive industry’s “first scalable family of SoCs” to offer this capability, and will enter production in 2024.

The Ride Flex platform is a four nanometer SoC and an extended version of the original Snapdragon Ride released in 2020, and automakers will be able to employ it to offer various levels of functionality and performance through entry-level to premium vehicles.

Qualcomm says its concept car, revealed at this week’s CES tech convention in Las Vegas, highlights the technological capabilities of its Snapdragon Digital Chassis by using not only the new SoC but also Snapdragon Cockpit Platforms and Snapdragon Auto Connectivity Platforms.

New Perodua Myvi G4 concept by Saharudin Design

MIMOS design head Saharudin Busri is back with another 3D rendering of what he imagines the next-generation Perodua Myvi could look like. His latest creation is an alternative to another Myvi G4 concept that he presented last April, so discuss in the comments which one you think looks more appealing.

At first glance, it is clear to see that the white concept is radically different in appearance when compared to Saharudin’s previous creation. While still sporty and modern, the new Myvi G4 concept doesn’t appear to come with a full-width light bar at the front. Instead, a slim black panel links the two headlamps, which feature round daytime running lights and rounded edges.

The main grille also protrudes more than on the red concept and has a hexagonal shape rather than being trapezoidal. This also sees the addition of a U-shaped lower intake that ends at horizontal LED light strips.

SsangYong name being dropped under new ownership

SsangYong the company has been saved, but SsangYong the name will be consigned to the scrapheap.

In remarks reported by Korean media, Kwak Jae-sun – the chairman of SsangYong’s new corporate parent KG Group as well as the automaker itself – said the firm will be renamed KG Mobility and new models will be launched under the KG brand.

“We have decided to go for a new name to fully utilise the strength of SsangYong Motor,” said Kwak at an event hosted by the Korea Automobile Journalists Association.

“Under the name of SsangYong, the company has a fandom but also has a painful image.

“The new cars will come out as KG, but its car-making history will never change and have the same conditions.”

Korean outlet Pulse News reports the rebranding will require approval from shareholders in March.

“Through a company survey, the company found a consensus among employees on

The top five reviews of 2022

Just like that 2022 is coming to a close!

There have been a quite a number of new vehicles that launched during the year amid continuing component and semiconductor shortages.

Here are the top-five new car reviews that caught the most attention from our native Australian readers.

2022 Toyota Corolla Hybrid review

The Toyota Corolla is a vehicle that needs little introduction.

In Australia, the Corolla consistently tops the passenger vehicle sales charts, comfortably beating the Hyundai i30, Kia Cerato and Mazda 3.

Part of the Corolla’s recent success is the option of a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, with most competing models still unable to offer similar engine technology at competitive pricing.

Toyota has since rolled out an update to the Corolla range for the 2023 model year which brought updated tech, a more powerful hybrid, and some cosmetic tweaks.
