2019 Volkswagen Passat facelift spied

The facelifted Volkswagen Passat sedan has been spied undergoing testing in the European Alps. Up front, the headlamp internals have been reworked, with the LED driving lights now forming a brow above the main- and high-beam units. The grille, at least on this prototype, has an egg crate-style design not too dissimilar to that used on the pricier Arteon.

Although stories about Tesla 'drivers' sleeping and sitting in the passenger seat – and, unfortunately, crashing while reliant on the system – abound, Autopilot is only meant to operate under constant driver supervision.

Poll: Nissan Terra takes down Isuzu MU-X

The 2018 Nissan Terra isn't confirmed for the Australian market, but it's managed to take down the sales-leading Isuzu MU-X in our latest online poll. A not-insignificant 58 per cent of respondents preferred the seven-seat Nissan over the MU-X, which is currently topping its class for sales.
