Volkswagen appoints former Rolls-Royce and BMW chief designer

Jozef Kaban, former head of design for Rolls-Royce, BMW and Skoda, has been appointed as the chief designer for the Volkswagen brand. Kaban will begin his new job on July 1, 2020, presumably because of a non-compete clause in his contract with the BMW Group, where he worked from early 2017 until October this year. From 2017 to March 2019, Kaban was the head of design for the BMW brand. He then moved on to a similar role at Rolls-Royce.

2020 Toyota Yaris GR4: All-wheel drive hatch teased

The Toyota Yaris GR-4 will have all-wheel drive and an aggressive widebody kit, a new video from Toyota has confirmed. Wrapped in the same camouflage as the Toyota Supra prototypes preceding the long-awaited production car, it appears the Yaris GR-4 will be a successor to the previous-generation Yaris GRMN offered in Europe. Toyota initially planned to reveal the car at Rally Australia in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, but the rally was cancelled because of bushfires.

BMW 1 Series scores five stars in ANCAP testing

BMW's new entry-level car, the 1 Series hatchback, has scored top marks in ANCAP crash testing – but the new Peugeot Parter fell short, thanks to a missing piece of active safety technology. The Partner van's autonomous emergency braking system can't detect cyclists in testing, limiting its 'vulnerable road user detection' score – and its overall rating to four stars.
