Suzuki Baleno GLX Turbo axed

Suzuki has killed its range-topping Baleno GLX Turbo, replacing it with a naturally-aspirated model wearing the GLX badge. Where the now-defunct Turbo (above) was powered by an 82kW, 160Nm three-cylinder turbocharged engine, the new Baleno GLX will make use of the same 1.4-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine as the wider range.

TVR Griffith production pushed back to 2020

TVR has confirmed it'll be 2020 before the hotly-anticipated Griffith enters production, as European Union rules around factory construction take their toll. After targeting a 2017 on-sale date, the car's delivery date was pushed back to 2019. TVR Heritage Director, Paul Thompson, has confirmed to AutoRAI a market launch during 2020 is now on the cards. "It takes more time than we expected to start production, thanks to the rules of the European Union," Thompson said.

2015-18 Volkswagen Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace recalled

Volkswagen has recalled the 2015-2018 Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace, over concerns about an issue with the LED module for the sunroof backlight. According to the company, heating of the module could cause a short-circuit because of 'humidity ingress' into the LED module. If the problem occurs, the backlight may stop working, and passengers might notice a burning smell in the cabin.

Ginetta road-going supercar teased

Ginetta, a Leeds-based company established in 1958, will soon enter the supercar arena with an as-yet unnamed vehicle. Although the company has built kit cars and fully-built road-going vehicles in the past, over the last few years it has concentrated on racing prototypes, and its own one-make racing series. According to the firm, its first modern supercar will have a carbon-fibre monocoque and body, and will be powered by a race-derived V8 engine cranking out around 450kW of power.
