Buick will start selling this summer a mid-size crossover SUV sourced from China. The crossover is called the Envision and starts at a hefty $42,995. Lower-cost versions will arrive by the end of the year, though.

Yesterday Alfa Romeo finally started production of its long-awaited Giulia. The stylish sports sedan should be in showrooms in the third quarter of the year, though initially it will only be available in 505-horsepower Quadrifoglio trim.

A prototype for BMW’s next-generation X3 has been spotted and this time we have video footage. The new X3 will be the first SUV to ride on BMW’s carbon fiber-infused modular platform that debuted in the 2016 7-Series. Shortly after the X3 arrives we’ll see a new X5 and eventually an X7.

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