2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA spied

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz CLA has been snapped by spy photographers during performance testing at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany. While there's a full-body wrap concealing the new model's design details, we can see that the new CLA will essentially be a 'mini-me' version of the new CLS, as is pretty much the case with the current one. Up front is Mercedes-Benz's 'predator' face, which the company says it is using on 'progressive' models – like the all-new A-Class and CLS.

Time Machine Tuesday: 24 July 2018

People often say “don’t forget where you came from”. Although we’re focused on every new car, every last detail here at CarAdvice, we have an extensive back-catalogue of news stories, lifestyle yarns and reviews. Here’s a look at what happened on the week of July 24 in years past. A year ago Jurgen Eberle, one of the Mercedes-Benz vehicle development engineers, decided to make a series of modifications to his E-Class All-Terrain, in a fashion similar to the existing G500 4x4² off-roader.

The feature, which is still being tested, was revealed by YouTuber Marques Brownlee during a brief preview drive of the car, and has since been confirmed in a statement provided to Motor Authority.

McLaren 720S tops 320km/h on the autobahn - video

No McLaren is slow, but the 720S is comfortably the biggest, baddest 'mainstream' production car in the British brand's range. Naturally, it's well qualified for a flat-out run on the autobahn. With 527kW/770Nm on tap from its twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8, it'll hit 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, 200km/h in 7.8 seconds and keeps pulling to 343km/h if given enough room. There's not quite enough room for this driver to nudge its V-max, but they get pretty close, touching 320km/h at one point.
