Audi e-tron Sportback debuts in Geneva

Audi has quietly revealed the e-tron Sportback prototype at the Geneva motor show, which will likely be fully detailed later in the year. Essentially a coupe version of the e-tron quattro SUV, the e-tron Sportback borrows its name from the sexy e-tron Sportback concept revealed for the 2017 Shanghai motor show. Unfortunately, the attractive design of the concept hasn't quite translated to the production model.

Mazda CX-30 to be sold alongside CX-3, not replace it

Mazda Australia says the recently-unveiled CX-30 compact SUV will complement the existing CX-3 instead of replacing it, with both models to sell side-by-side for the foreseeable future. The new Mazda CX-30 sits between the CX-3 and CX-5 dimensionally, and Mazda believes that gives it an edge in the highly-popular SUV segment as buyers look for models that suit their particular needs.

Mitsubishi Outlander concept unveiled

Mitsubishi has given the clearest indication yet of what its next generation Outlander will look like. The Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer concept unveiled at the 2019 Geneva motor show is a pointer to its new styling direction. What the photos don’t show, though, is that this is the first Mitsubishi based on the new Alliance platform shared with joint venture partners Nissan and Renault. The concept is a plug-in hybrid that uses two electric motors, one each for the front and rear axles.
