The first images of the interior of the Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake were revealed overnight.

Photographers have snapped images of the updated 2019 Volkswagen Passat Wagon – or 'Variant' as it's known in markets like Germany – ahead of an anticipated reveal early next year.
Like the sedan prototypes we've seen recently, it appears the design changes will be limited to the front and rear sections of the vehicles, incorporating revised grilles, bumpers, and lights – including dynamic 'scrolling' indicators for flagship models.
