Poll: 2019 Audi e-tron lands first blow in EV battle

They're both electric, they're both German and they're both official – finally. It appears the more conventional Audi e-tron quattro is leading the electric charge, having toppled the Mercedes-Benz EQC in our latest poll. A handy 66 per cent of respondents to the poll favoured the angular Audi, which is already being produced ahead of a European market launch at the end of this year.

2010-14 Subaru Outback, Liberty recalled

Subaru has recalled the 2010-2014 Outback and Liberty, over concerns about their electric parking brakes. According to the company, if the parking brake circuit board fractures a warning light will illuminate and the brake can't be applied or released. That puts the cars in breach of Australian Design Rules (ADR) for motor vehicles. A total of 19,479 Liberty models and 23,210 Outback examples are impacted – VIN lists are attached to the respective model names.

GAC Motors GS5 spied

The new GAC Motors GS5 has been spotted ahead of its debut at the Paris motor show on October 2. Photos of the compact SUV have surfaced on the Russian website car.ru, showing an undisguised example in production form. These images come after GAC released design sketches of the new model, showing design features such as wraparound taillights and a ‘floating’ roof. These features are carried across to the production car, albeit with more conventional proportions.
