2019 BMW 4 Series Convertible spied

BMW's new drop-top 4 Series has been snapped with the roof down during testing in Germany, giving us a decent peek at its slicker new profile. Unlike the current model, we know the new 4er will run with a cloth roof. Not only is it in keeping with BMW's roadster tradition, a folding soft top is lighter, simpler and more cost-effective.

Former Volkswagen CEO charged in Germany over Dieselgate affair

Martin Winterkorn, former Volkswagen Group CEO, was last week charged for offences related to the company's Dieselgate saga. Prosecutors claim Winterkorn didn't inform customers about the company's emissions cheating software and failed to stop the company from using such software at the earliest possible instance. Due to the company's delayed reaction, it was hit with large punitive fines by both German and American authorities.
