2019 McLaren Senna recalled

McLaren has recalled the 2019 Senna, over concerns about an issue with the engine's wiring harness. According to the company, a part of the car's wiring harness could come into contact with the 'metal link pipe heat shield' and chafe, damaging wires within the harness. If damage occurs to the wiring harness, the engine could stall, misfire or rupture its exhaust system, possibly causing a loss of power. That increases the risk of an accident or injury to the driver and other road users.

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.

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.

2020 Smart ForTwo facelift sketched out

A sketch previewing the updated electric-only Smart ForTwo has been unveiled ahead of the car's debut at 2019 Frankfurt motor show, which kicks off in the middle of September. To mark the transition to an all-electric lineup the Smart ForTwo and ForFour models will be given a facelift. While the sketch indicates the updated ForTwo will have a wider body and more aggressive stance, spy photos show the car's body panels will be untouched.
