Lexus F: Electrified drivetrains, dedicated model may be on the horizon

Yoshihiro Sawa, president of Lexus, has stated future F models may come with hybrid drivetrains. At the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Sawa told told AutoExpress the F performance sub-brand is "very important", but has to find an "original way" to "connect to the next era". In his opinion, "people like the sound, the dynamics" of an internal combustion engine, but the company can't just stick with "V8, V10, twin-turbocharged" engines to provide emotion.

2019 Renault Kadjar spied again

The facelifted Renault Kadjar has been spied again, this time including images of the vehicle's interior – though there's still a heap of camouflage throughout. Based on the same platform as the Nissan Qashqai, the Kadjar looks set to inherit the French brand's latest family design look, which should bring it more in line with the Megane hatchback and the larger Koleos crossover.

Audi joins Takata airbag recall

Audi Australia has issued a recall for the previous-generation Q5, A3 and A5 as part of the ongoing and ever-growing Takata airbag campaign. The German marque reported that affected vehicles are fitted with the more serious 'alpha' airbags – rather the less-dangerous, but still potentially deadly, 'beta' inflators. First cab off the rank will be the '8R' Q5 from model years 2009-12 (9244 units), believed to be fitted with faulty driver's side airbags. This recall is active from 13 July.
