Jeep’s replacement for both the Compass and Patriot has been outed. The new compact SUV was spotted while on an official photo shoot in Brazil. It goes on sale here early next year.

Another vehicle spotted early is a new BMW 8-Series. It was spotted in prototype form at a BMW test center in Germany. The large, luxurious coupe isn’t due in showrooms until 2019, though.

Audi’s new TT has spawned its high-performance TT RS variant. The tiny coupe has all-wheel drive, a dual-clutch transmission and 400 horsepower from a 5-cylinder engine. Find out what it’s like in our first drive review.
