2018 Kia Stinger revealed: Detroit debut for 272kW rear-drive Korean liftback - UPDATE

The long-awaited Kia Stinger rear-wheel-drive sports liftback made its world premiere this week at the annual Detroit motor show.

Mercedes-AMG R50: 'It's perfect'

The hotly anticipated Mercedes-AMG R50 hypercar will be clearly distinguishable as a product of the three-pointed star brand, the company’s chief design officer has revealed. Speaking with CarAdvice at CES 2017, Gorden Wagener – the chief penman for the company who signs off on every new model launched under the Mercedes badge – said the new hypercar was a fulfilling project to lead. “The car is very clean and pure, but also very extreme,” he said.

No pedals, no steering wheel, not for sale: Ford autonomous car in 2021 will be for fleets only

The headline says it all: Ford’s first fully autonomous car will not be sold to members of the public, and nor will it have a steering wheel, accelerator or brake pedals. The as-yet-unnamed future model is destined to be used as a fleet vehicle for ride hailing companies – similar to Lyft and Uber – but instead of a driver trying to find you, the car will bring itself to wherever you may be.

BMW explores control and display tech with i Inside Future

BMW has rolled out (or pushed, or carried, since it has no wheels...) a new concept for this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Dubbed i Inside Future, the sculpture-like concept forms part of the future-focused program that brought us the electrified i3 hatch and i8 sports coupe. Among the i Inside Future's minimalist styling features are deep Eames-like seats with room for four, and roof-mounted headrests do their part to highlight the art-focused strategy of this concept.
