2020 Audi Q3 pricing and specs

Audi has revealed pricing and specs for the 2020 Q3, which goes head-to-head with the Lexus UX and Volvo XC40 in the fast-growing compact luxury SUV class. Compared to the car it replaces, the new Q3 is a significantly bigger and higher-tech proposition. Two models will be offered, both powered by the same 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine making 110kW and 250Nm. It's mated with a six-speed dual-clutch transmission, powering only the front wheels.

2017-19 Lamborghini Aventador S recalled

Lamborghini has recalled the 2017-19 Aventador S and Aventador S Roadster, over concerns about the engine's ability to maintain idle. According to the company, a software fault means the engine might not maintain the minimum idle speed required to stay running. If the engine can't idle, it could stall. Although the engine can be restarted after a stall, the issue still increases the risk of an accident or injury to other road users.
