Infiniti QX55 teased again

Infiniti invented the coupe crossover with the muscular FX/QX70, which it nicknamed the “Bionic Cheetah”. It’s been discontinued from overseas markets and will soon be withdrawn from Australia, but Infiniti has a new coupe crossover coming to fill the void, the QX55. The BMW X3-sized QX50 upon which the QX55 is based is a handsome, contemporary SUV but it lacks the visual dynamism of the outgoing QX70.

2020 Volkswagen ID.4 teased in China

Volkswagen has detailed its upcoming product offensive for the Chinese market, in the process teasing the new ID.4 electric crossover which is due to be revealed in the coming months. Despite the ID.3 hatchback having already gone on sale in Europe, the Tiguan-sized ID.4 will be the first of Volkswagen's new EV models to hit the Chinese market when production starts in 12 months time – similar to how it will kickstart the brand's electrification push in Australia, too.

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).

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.
