UK MPs call for hands-free phone ban in cars

We know playing with your phone while driving can be dangerously distracting but a group of British MPs are calling for the UK’s ban on phone use while driving to be extended to hands-free devices.

2019 Subaru Levorg gets 2.0L atmo four in the UK

Subaru UK has updated the Levorg wagon with revised styling, more safety equipment, and a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated engine. Compared to the model it replaces, the single-trim Levorg 2.0i GT gets a revised front bumper, 'sharper' grille, adaptive LED headlights, LED fog-lights, and new 18-inch alloy wheels. Under the bonnet, the British arm has ditched the previous 1.6-litre turbo for a 2.0-litre atmo 'boxer' engine, which makes a fairly uninspiring 110kW at 6200rpm and 198Nm at 4200rpm.
