About 3,000 Australians die prematurely each year from outdoor air pollution, and our cars are a major component of that pollution, particularly in traffic congested areas.

But guess what! For the mere $4 million it costs, the engine will only last 50,000km.

Its latest premium SUV, the Ford Escape Titanium, boasts automated brakes that kick in without any input from the driver when it senses an incoming collision.
