Speaking exclusively to CarAdvice, Aston Martin senior manager of vehicle dynamics, Ian Hartley, suggested the brand is looking into implementing a feature like drift mode to give the DBX a competitive edge.

BMW rules out Mercedes-AMG A45, Audi RS3 mega hatch rival

BMW has opted not to make a version of its radically different 1 Series hatchback to tackle extra-hardcore hot hatches like the Mercedes-AMG A45 or Audi RS3. Instead, the new M135i xDrive flagship — which migrates to the company’s UKL transverse, all-wheel drive architecture to maximise cabin space — is built to battle next-tier rivals such as the A35 AMG, Audi S3, Focus ST and Volkswagen Golf R.

2019 Ford Endura crash tested again as part of ANCAP safety audit

It's the phone call no manufacturer wants to get. A call from ANCAP advising one of their vehicles has been purchased for a secondary verification crash test. This time it's Ford's turn, with ANCAP selecting the new Ford Endura for an audit test to confirm results obtained by Euro NCAP. An audit test occurs when ANCAP decides to reassess a vehicle and ensure it still meets the standards for ratings previously achieved in local crash-testing or via tests carried out by partner Euro NCAP.
