Porsche Cayenne Turbo S : Upgraded SUV laps Nurburgring in under eight minutes

An upgraded version of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S has been unveiled today at the 2015 Detroit motor show. Under the bonnet there's an revised version of the company's twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8, which now develops 419kW of power and 800Nm of torque. That's up 15kW and 50Nm on the soon-to-be-replaced model. The revised Turbo S can complete the 0-100km/h standard in 4.1 seconds, a 0.4sec improvement on the current model. Top speed has been lifted to 284km/h from 283km/h.

Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan to debut in Detroit

Volvo will debut a new soft-roader variant of its 60-Series range, the Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan, at next week's Detroit motor show. It seems as though the S60 Cross Country will feature all of the same tweaks applied to the V60 Cross Country wagon. Both cars sit on a suspension package that rides 65mm higher than regular S60 and V60 variants. There's also grey wheel arch extensions that house higher profile rubber wrapped around either 18- or 19-inch wheels, depending on the model.
