BMW is about to launch a more potent version of its M4. The car was just spotted at an official photo shoot and is thought to be the first of a new generation of “CS” cars developed by the M division.

The first prototypes for Ford’s next-generation Focus have been spotted. Our shots show a hatchback but the new Focus should still offer sedan and wagon body styles as well.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is back, only this time around it’s an SUV and has a “Cross” attached to its name. We’ll see the covers come off next month at the 2017 Geneva auto show.
