2019 Kia Telluride spied testing

A heavily-camouflaged prototype believed to be the production version of the Kia Telluride SUV has been spied for the first time on the roads of South Korea, just a week after the company confirmed the vehicle was in development. Posted by The Korean Car Blog, the single image shows a very large SUV that appears to mix the squared-off face of the Telluride concept shown at the 2016 Detroit motor show with a rear-end design closer in shape to the current Sorento.

Scientists make carbon-fibre from plants, may reduce its price

Scientists have found a way that could make carbon-fibre both cheaper and more environmentally-friendly to produce. Carbon-fibre reinforced plastic is light, strong and fashionable, and a great way to make a car a faster or more fuel efficient. Unfortunately, it's also hugely expensive, which means it's largely restricted to vehicles with big sticker prices or designed specifically for racing.

2013 Lexus IS added to Takata airbag recall

Lexus has issued a recall for 698 vehicles across its 2013 IS model line as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. This latest notice is due to the front passenger airbag inflators in affected vehicles, which may be susceptible to moisture intrusion over time. If the condition occurs, the airbag inflator assembly may rupture when deployed, posing a risk of serious injury, even death, to the vehicle's occupants.

2019 BMW Z4 spied with less camouflage next to Toyota Supra

The third-generation BMW Z4 has been spied alongside its platform mate, the long-awaited successor to the Toyota Supra. Compared to the last prototype, spied on the Nurburgring in May 2017, this latest car wears significantly less camouflage. Gone are most of the coverings around the head- and tail-lights, the disguise around the grille and lower air intakes, and the false body panels along the car's flanks.
