Fiat 124 Spider future in doubt – report

In a move that doesn’t bode well for the future of the Fiat 124 Spider, the Mazda MX-5-based drop-top has been dropped from Fiat’s European range. That includes its sportier Abarth 124 Spider counterpart, the only 124 variant offered here. What distinguished the car the most from its Mazda MX-5 twin – the 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged four-cylinder engine – is what appears to have done the 124 in.

More powerful base engine coming for Genesis G70 - report

If you want to go up against established rivals, you have to offer more. Genesis understands that, its G70 outgunning similarly-priced Germans. Sometime in the next couple of years, it’s planning to introduce a new entry-level engine that will further surpass those rivals’ base engines. Car & Driver reports the G70 range will open with the same turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder which will power the upcoming 2020 Hyundai Sonata N-Line.
