Maserati’s Quattroporte receives a sharp new look for the 2017 model year. The big sedan also gets a more refined interior though sadly there’s no extra power under the hood.

Subaru’s BRZ is also being updated for the 2017 model year and yes it has a few extra horsepower. Subaru has also announced a special edition model dubbed the Yellow.Series which will be limited to just 500 units.

BMW’s 3-Series was updated only last year but for 2017 it’s receiving a new plug-in hybrid model, the 330e i Performance. Some models also get a new 4-cylinder engine.

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