Jaguar Land Rover buys off-road specialists Bowler

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has bought Bowler, the boffins behind some of the world's wildest Land Rover Defenders. Bowler has been around since 1965, and specialises in creating cars for the rough-and-tumble world of rally raid. Its cars are built in low volumes, powered by either V6 turbo-diesel or supercharged V6 petrol engines. It was the supplier for the one-make Defender Challenge that ran between 2014 and 2016, too. Land Rover has been working with the company since 2012.

2020 Skoda Karoq gets less efficient 110TSI engine, new 140TSI Sportline hero

Skoda will swap the 1.5-litre engine in the base Karoq for a less efficient 1.4-litre unit in 2020 – and it says Australia's emissions regulations are to blame. The only Karoq on offer in Australia is currently the 110TSI, which is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine making 110kW and 250Nm. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

BMW Z4 M40i gets a power boost for 2020

The BMW Z4 M40i will get a power boost for 2020, and a significant performance improvement to go with it. The range-topping BMW Z4 currently shares its turbocharged 3.0-litre inline-six engine with the Toyota Supra, along with its claimed 250kW and 500Nm outputs. But Z4 M40i buyers from early in 2020 will get an uprated version of the same engine making 285kW and 500Nm – identical to what's on offer in the M340i xDrive and X3 M40i with which the roadster shares its engine.
