Road tax: Public support growing for user-pays model - survey

Public support for a 'road tax' to replace the current fuel excise is growing, according to a new survey from EastLink.

2019 BMW 3 Series Touring spied with less camouflage

The new BMW 3 Series Touring seems to be close to its full public unveiling, as these latest prototype cars have shed a significant amount of camouflage.

Subaru WRX STI TC380 announced in Japan

The Subaru WRX STI TC380, the latest in a long line of limited-edition WRX models, has gone on sale in Japan. According to the Fuji Subaru car dealership, the TC380 was developed under the supervision of Toshihiro Arai, a former driver with the Subaru World Rally Team. Unfortunately, the company has yet to launch the car's promised mini-site, so the only image we have of the TC380 is its badge.
