BMW: Fully-autonomous driving technology not yet available

BMW says that in order to meet its own stringent safety requirements and built in redundancies, fully autonomous 'Level 5' driving technologies are not yet available for mass-market production. Speaking to the Australian motoring media at the Frankfurt motor show, Klaus Fröhlich, member of the board of management at BMW, said that his company now uses more sensors and more hardware for Level 2 autonomous technologies than some competitors (such as Tesla) have for Level 5.

Volkswagen Arteon to cost $65,490

The Volkswagen Arteon luxury car will arrive in Australia this November - shortly after its world premiere - as the company's new flagship passenger car, part of its push into the premium part of the market. The spiritual successor to the CC takes the MQB architecture of the Passat but replaces the safe sedan/wagon design with a more daring, lean look that bears more than a passing resemblance (from some angles) to the Audi A5. It's also 50mm longer in the wheelbase.

BMW i Vision Dynamics concept revealed: Tesla rival previewed

The BMW i Vision Dynamics unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show previews a new electric sedan that should launch in the not-too-distant future. According to BMW, the i Vision Dynamics is "a dynamic and progressive, four-door Gran Coupe" that will be the "future [of] electric mobility between the i3 and i8". The i Vision Dynamics concept looks to be quite to different to the leaked patent renderings reported to preview a third BMW i model that could debut the rumoured 'i5' badge.

2018 Renault Megane RS breaks cover

The brand new five-door-only 2018 Renault Megane RS has made its high-profile world premiere at the Frankfurt motor show today, and damn it if the company hasn't knocked the design out of the park... The third-generation, painted in lurid orange, gets a new turbocharged 1.8-litre engine with 205kW at 6000rpm and 390Nm of torque - not exactly Ford Focus RS or Honda Civic Type R numbers... This engine is shared with the upcoming Alpine A110 coupe.
