2019 BMW X1 facelift spied

The updated BMW X1 has been spied undergoing testing near the company's headquarters in Munich, Germany. When the second-generation X1 was unveiled in 2015, it made waves for being the first major globally-available model from the Bavarian brand to use a front-wheel drive platform — the earlier 2 Series Active Tourer is significantly more niche, and the 1 Series sedan is restricted primarily to China.

Tesla Model 3 gets 'Summon' functionality

Tesla has wirelessly added its 'Summon' functionality to the Model 3, allowing owners of the affordable electric baby to remotely park their cars in tight spaces. The news was revealed on Twitter, but it wasn't announced on Elon Musk's feed. Instead, Tesla tweeted a video of an owner remotely parking his Model 3 in a very skinny garage, and said "Summon now available in Model 3".

Hyundai Santa Cruz 'too small' for Australia

Hyundai has confirmed the Santa Cruz ute will go into production for North America by 2020. Great news, right? Well, there's no guarantee it'll make its way Down Under. Speaking with CarAdvice at the launch of the Santa Fe, Hyundai Australia marketing director, Oliver Mann, said the product isn't necessarily right for Australia, and the company really wants a bigger ute for our market.

Fiat 500 Spiaggina '58 revealed

Fiat has taken the wraps off a special-edition 500, designed to commemorate six decades since the canvas-topped 500 Jolly 'Spiaggina' was launched in Italy. Back in the late 1950s, the Spiaggina (or 'beach car') was a part of the scenery on the Italian Riviera, ferrying well-heeled tourists around stunning beachside resorts. With a stable economy came money to spend, and the cutesy little Fiat variant became a glamorous car that, while not strictly necessary, made people feel good.

Subaru Forester turbo axed, company concedes buyer concerns

Subaru Australia’s importer admits there are some buyers “concerned” at the lack of a higher-performance turbocharged petrol engine in the company’s new Forester. It’s not news, but the overhauled new-generation version of what has long been Subaru’s top-seller here will come with one engine only at launch: a 2.5-litre Boxer four cylinder, matched to a CVT and symmetrical AWD.
