A prototype for the second-generation Buick Verano has been spotted. The car rides on General Motors Company’s [NYSE:GM] new D2XX compact car platform and is set to arrive in showrooms as a 2017 model.

Audi’s new Q3 compact crossover has just gone on sale but an updated version has already been revealed. That’s because the Q3 has been on sale elsewhere since 2011 and has just received its mid-cycle update. The update brings a few visual tweaks, more efficient engines and some new tech features.

McLaren’s upcoming entry-level model, known to many as the P13, has been confirmed today to be receiving the Sports Series title. The somewhat silly name is to signify that the new McLaren is more of a sports car as opposed to the high-end supercars most people associate the brand with.

You’ll find all of this and more in today’s car news right here at Motor Authority.
