Engineers are out testing prototypes for an updated Cadillac XT5. Expect some styling tweaks inspired by 2016's Escala concept, as well as the addition of more powertrain options.

A senior Nissan executive has revealed the automaker is studying the possibility of launching a rival to the Ford Ranger Raptor. The basis would be the global NP300 Navara pickup.

The Volkswagen Group's Spanish unit SEAT has just launched a performance sub-brand called Cupra. And the first model from Cupra is a compact SUV powered by the same engine found in the Volkswagen Golf R and Audi S3.
