Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler join Takata recall

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall for the 2014-15 Chrysler 300 and 2014-16 Jeep Wrangler as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Vehicles affected by this notice are fitted with faulty passenger-side airbags, though are labelled with the less-dangerous 'beta' rating. As the airbag gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the inflator propellant to degrade over time.

Mercedes-Benz EQ S coming in 2020 – report

Mercedes-Benz is plotting an all-electric luxury flagship to rival upcoming cars from Audi and Jaguar, according to a new report out of the UK. Autocar quotes the company's large cars project boss, Michael Kelz, saying: "We will have an electric vehicle at the level of the S-Class, no doubt, but it will not be the S-Class". The new vehicle will come under Mercedes-Benz's new EQ electric sub-brand, and use the new MEA modular architecture for electric vehicles (EV).

Poll: 2018 Aston Martin Vantage vanquishes Porsche 911

Aston Martin was clear about its goal for the new Vantage: it wants to take down the Porsche 911. The embargo on drive impressions lifts soon – April 12, to be precise – but if our most recent poll is an accurate guide, the company is on the right track. A whopping 66 per cent of respondents preferred the Vantage to the Porsche 911, in a sign the car's more aggressive new look is a winner.

Tesla Model 3: Dual-motor "probably" coming in July

The more powerful, dual-motor Tesla Model 3 could enter production as soon as July this year, as the brand continues its production ramp-up. Asked by a Twitter user when the dual-motor model would arrive, CEO Elon Musk said Tesla needs to be building 5000 cars per week before adding another variant to the line. In a follow-up, the company founder clarified and said that would be "probably July". He also said white leather would likely be added to the options list around the same time.
