Mercedes-Benz has just launched a new generation of its E-Class, and soon the car will face competition from a new generation of its closest rival, the BMW 5-Series. Today we have spy shots of a prototype for the new 5-Series Sports Wagon, or Touring as it’s known in most markets.

Our colleagues at The Car Connection have just driven the all-new Cadillac XT5. Compared to the SRX it replaces, the XT5 is improved in nearly every way. It’s quicker, better-handling, more refined, more comfortable, quieter, and more lavish than its predecessor.

Porsche’s Macan is getting a new base option that makes it even more affordable to hop behind the wheel of this stylish SUV. Its arrival ensures that Porsche still has an offering for under $50k.
