Safer, quieter and more driveable, the new Optima is moving up-market to tackle high-spec rivals There was so much to like in the previous Kia Optima, but the peaky 2.4-litre Theta four-cylinder engine held it back. Now, a new Optima has arrived in Australia, continuing to offer that engine, but it’s joined by a flexible 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder generating ample power and torque for family car buyers.
Forget about the name, this small SUV is not at all prickly, but will it flourish in our intemperate market? The latest small SUV to be in the news – seemingly there’s a new one every week – is the Citroen C4 Cactus, a light car based on the company’s aging PF1 platform that also underpins other Citroen and Peugeot models.
Maserati is a storied brand, backed by a motor racing heritage going back decades. That may explain why the company boasts a clientele almost exclusively male. But that is steadily changing, according to Maserati Australia COO, Glen Sealey. Still relatively new to the market, the Ghibli has nabbed a higher share of female buyers than its larger sibling, the Quattroporte, right from its introduction last year.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
