Volvo will use next week’s 2015 Shanghai Auto Show to present a new range-topping version of its XC90 SUV. Called the “XC90 Excellence”, the vehicle ditches the seven-seat layout of the standard XC90 for an opulent four-seat arrangement that should appeal to China’s chauffeur-driven execs.

A new prototype for Jaguar’s F-Pace SUV has been spotted. The new model will be shown for the first time at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show in September.

Bob Lutz is never short of an opinion, and now he’s come out and suggested that manufacturer-sponsored racing is mostly a waste of money. It’s not racing per se that ruffles his feathers but the regulations that can often limit technological progress in the sport.

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