2020 Nissan Patrol leaked

Images of Nissan's facelifted 2020 Patrol have lobbed online, revealing the LandCruiser-fighter's upright new look. Photos published on Almuraba show how Nissan will apply the design language it's developed across its line of city-focused crossovers to the hulking Patrol off-roader. The V8 four-wheel drive hasn't been given a major styling tweak since launching in 2010, although its equipment levels have been adjusted locally.

Bugatti Chiron tops 300mph as company looks to leave the speed record game

Bugatti has sent a modified Chiron where no near-production car has gone before, topping 300mph (482.8km/h) at the recently-resurfaced Ehra-Lessien test track. The company says its 300mph run spells the end of its obsession with top speed, having "shown several times that we build the fastest cars in the world".

2020 Holden Equinox range to be streamlined

Holden is hoping a simplified range will give its Equinox mid-sized SUV a sales boost for the 2020 model year. The two base models (LS, LS+) will be discontinued from the end of 2019, and the unloved diesel and manual options will be axed. The starting price for a new Equinox is likely to increase from $27,990 drive-away to more than $32,000 before on-road costs with the revised line-up.

Holden Barina, Cruze, Trax Takata recall expanded

GM Holden has issued an extended recall for the Barina, Cruze and Trax model lines as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Additionally, Holden has classified the notice for MY10 Cruze models manufactured between February 2009 and September 2009 as a 'critical recall' as the vehicle is more than six years old. It's worth noting, though, that while the recall is 'critical', these vehicles aren't fitted with the more dangerous 'alpha' airbags.

BMW M boss rules out wagons

BMW M will leave Audi and Mercedes-Benz to fight it out in the fast wagon market, focusing on SUVs to cater for practically-minded buyers. Speaking with CAR in the UK, BMW M boss, Markus Flasch, said there's not enough demand for wagons – or estates, in European parlance – to justify developing cars like an M3 or M5 Touring. "Touring estates are not part of our M plan," he said. Fairly unequivocal.
