2020 Audi A5 Sportback spied

Photographers have snapped the first images of the upcoming Audi A5 facelift this week, previewing the relatively light changes in store for its coupe, convertible and four-door Sportback range. With the swirly black-and-white wrap focused on the front and rear ends, it's pretty obvious the majority of changes will be made at the bumpers and light units to bring the A5 family in line with the company's latest models.

Electric vehicles: Federal 'plan about a plan' slammed by EV Council

Prime Minister Scott Morrison today unveiled a $2 billion pre-election climate change policy, but electric vehicle advocates are calling for more to be done in support of the burgeoning EV market.

BMW X1 gets 'no credit' in IIHS pedestrian AEB testing

The BMW X1 has completely flunked pedestrian autonomous emergency braking testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). So poor was its performance, the littlest BMW crossover was the only vehicle to not be rated in a test of 11 compact SUVs. The second-worst rated car was the Mitsubishi Outlander, while the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and Volvo XC40 took top ratings.
