2018 Porsche Macan facelift spied

The updated Porsche Macan has been spied once more during testing in northern Europe, almost a year since prototypes of the facelift were last seen on public roads. Externally, the updates seem to be relatively minor. Up front, the vehicles in this convoy feature two updated and slightly different front bumper designs: one variant features combined driving and indicator lights, while another utilises two thinner units on each side.

Alfa Romeo preparing hybrid BMW X5 rival

Alfa Romeo bosses have confirmed a large SUV will join the mid-size Stelvio, complete with seven seats and a hybrid powertrain.
