2020 BMW M340i xDrive Touring launches in Europe, still not for Oz

The BMW M340i xDrive Touring has gone on sale in Europe, sporting the same 275kW/500Nm turbocharged inline six as its sedan equivalent – but don't expect it in Australia anytime soon. Compared to its three-box twin (which is now on sale Down Under from $99,900), the M340i xDrive Touring claims to hit 100km/h from a standstill in 4.5 seconds (0.1s slower than the sedan).

NSW adopts electric car and hybrid warning labels on rego plates

Hybrid and electric vehicles sold in NSW from this year must have an ‘EV’ (electric vehicle) warning sticker on their registration plates – following a similar requirement from authorities in Victoria since 2013. However, emergency services will still be left guessing in other states which are yet to follow – and even NSW and Victoria cannot agree on common symbols.

2021 BMW 5 Series facelift spied with less camouflage

The facelifted BMW 5 Series Touring has been spied again, this time with less disguise, especially around the front of the vehicle. Up front, there's a revised bumper with triangular vents towards the edges. There's also a new grille design with the double kidney elements fused together. Mercifully the 5 Series looks to have escaped, at least for now, the tall and narrow kidney grilles first seen on the Concept 4 coupe and leaked pre-production versions of the new 4 Series coupe.

Porsche 911 manual here in 2020

Porsche has confirmed a manual version of the latest 911 will be offered in Australia from next year, but the company hasn't confirmed whether it will be offered on the base Carrera. As before, the manual offered in non-GT 911 models will be a seven-speeder. Porsche says the 100km/h sprint takes around four seconds, and the manual is about 10kg lighter than the dual-clutch PDK automatic.
