2020 Skoda Octavia spied ahead of Frankfurt debut

The next-generation Skoda Octavia wagon has been spied with very little disguise this week, ahead of its debut in Frankfurt later this year. Despite already straddling the small and medium segments, the Octavia looks set to grow even larger than the current model, most likely to give more space to the new Scala hatchback. The Octavia will ride on a revised version of the Volkswagen Group's MQB platform, set to underpin the next-gen versions of the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf.

2020 Ferrari hybrid spied and teased

Ferrari has published two official teasers for its upcoming hybrid V8 supercar, ahead of its launch on May 29, European time. The teasers provide clues to the design of the new model's front and rear ends, albeit in a typically cryptic fashion. Judging by the spy photos, Ferrari's first "mainstream" hybrid model – not a limited-run special like LaFerrari – will be a two-seat model possibly based on the F8 Tributo.

Skoda Mountiaq: Concept Kodiaq ute taking shape

Skoda's student-developed ute concept is taking shape ahead of its reveal next month, with teaser images revealing some of the changes being made to its Kodiaq underpinnings. The new Mountiaq Concept will be a pickup (picqup?) based on the Kodiaq SUV, wearing gear like a front-mounted winch, 17-inch wheels and a Sunset Orange paint finish. We also know there will be an LED light bar on the roof and backlit elements in the grille.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class & GLC recalled - UPDATE

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall notice for the 2018 E-Class and GLC, over concerns the power steering could fail. UPDATE, 28/5/19: The original version of this article stated the GLE was recalled, this isn't the case. It's in fact the GLC that is affected by this recall. The three-pointed star reports that 'certain' vehicles across both model lines could have a sensor in the electric power steering system that was "manufactured outside of the specification".
