2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA spied inside and out

Our spy photography agency has spotted the next-generation 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA 'four-door coupe' again. This time around, though, the team has managed to get a glimpse inside the second-generation CLA, and it looks a lot like the A-Class on which it's based. Surprise! Like the already-unveiled A-Class hatch and sedan, the new CLA has a large rectangular display containing both a digital instrumentation screen and a touchscreen for the MBUX infotainment system.

Poll: Porsche 911 Turbo wins inter-generational battle

The modern Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive Edition has beaten out its older, rarer cousin in our latest poll. Put head-to-head with the recently-auctioned 993 911 Turbo Project Gold, the modern Turbo won 61.6 per cent of the vote. Power in the Turbo S Exclusive comes from a 3.8-litre twin-turbo six-cylinder engine making 427kW and 700Nm. It's put to all four wheels through a seven-speed PDK transmission, for a sub three second sprint to 100km/h.

Toyota Mirai trials set for Hobson's Bay

Hobson's Bay has announced a 12-week trial of the Toyota Mirai, with three hydrogen fuel-cell sedans bound for the beachside city council's fleet. The trial, which starts today, will put the fuel-cell sedan in the hands of council members on regular day-to-day duties. According to the mayor, Angela Altair, the results will be fed back to Toyota to help it better understand what's required for hydrogen vehicles to work on fleets.

EasyMile: Level 5 autonomy could still be 8-10 years away

As the push towards autonomous vehicles accelerates, car manufacturers are ramping up their claims about what their self-driving cars will be able to do, and when they'll be able to do it. General Motors wants to have a vehicle without pedals or a steering wheel on the road by 2019, while Ford says it'll be building self-driving cars at 'scale' by 2021. BMW is also planning to have drivers (sorry, passengers) rolling by 2021.
