BMW X5 xDrive40i pricing and specs

BMW has announced pricing and specs for the mid-range X5 xDrive40i, arriving in Australia during the first quarter of 2019 from $115,900 before on-road costs. The new variant sits between the 30d and M50d, with power from a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six petrol engine making 250kW and 450Nm. It's put to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, as with the wider range, for a 100km/h sprint time of just 5.2 seconds.

Mazda has demand for 'about 3000' CarPlay retrofits so far

Remember all that talk about whether Mazda was charging too much for its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto retrofit? It looks like the price is right, because the company has around 3000 people requesting the upgrade. That's according to Alastair Doak, marketing director at Mazda Australia, who today told CarAdvice the company has already re-ordered parts from Japan twice, suggesting demand has exceeded expectations.

McLaren Senna GTR spied

Spy photographers have snapped images of what is believed to be a hotter version of the McLaren Senna, which could don the 'GTR' moniker. Not that the Senna really needed to get any crazier, it's believed this vehicle previews a more powerful and even more focused version of the 720S-based track monster, serving as the newest GTR-badged model after the iconic McLaren F1 GTR of the mid-1990s and the more recent P1 GTR.

Four-door TT is off the table, Audi says

Audi has scrapped plans for a four-door derivative of its TT coupe, suggesting it would be tricky to deliver a practical 'family' car that does justice to the badge's heritage. The idea for a TT Sportback was first mooted by Audi technical chief, Ulrich Hackenberg, as part of a push to expand its model line-up. We even saw the TT Sportback concept (pictured below) in 2014, but a production version hasn't been forthcoming.

2020 Audi RS Q3 spied with less camouflage

The Audi RS Q3 has been spied again, this time in southern Europe instead of the Nurburgring. More significantly the company has stripped away much of the camouflage covering the doors, pillars, bonnet and tailgate. The grille and front air vents have a new pattern shared with prototypes of the upcoming RS Q8. We can also see the car's more pronounced side sills, and the two large exhaust tips at the back.
