2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible revealed

The latest C8 series of Chevrolet Corvette switched to a mid-engine layout for the first time, and now the convertible brings another dramatic change to the line – a retractable hardtop roof. The Corvette convertible maintains the coupe’s sleek profile, though the placement of the roof mechanism means there’s no longer a window to the engine. The roof is body-coloured by default but you can opt for it and the flying buttresses to be painted in contrasting Carbon Flash metallic grey.

2020 Buick Verano sedan debuts

A refreshed version of the Buick Verano sedan has debuted in China. The Verano uses the same D2XX platform as our Holden Astra and has a 2700mm wheelbase, identical to the recently discontinued Astra sedan. Unlike our Astra, however, the 2020 Verano has ditched four-cylinder engines for a pair of turbocharged three-pots. There’s a 1.0-litre mill with 92kW and 180Nm, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, and a 1.3 unit with 121kW and 240Nm of torque mated to a CVT.
