Mercedes-Benz has a redesigned CLA on its hands and this time around there are two high-performance versions from AMG. The first of these was revealed overnight as the CLA35 which packs a 302-horsepower inline-4, a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and all-wheel drive.

Mini will launch an electric Hardtop later in 2019, which it will badge a Cooper S E. One of the design elements to separate the electric Hardtop from its gasoline counterpart will be an accent bar running across the grille that actually lights up.

Lexus is about to jump into the minivan game with a new model dubbed the LM. Judging by a teaser shot, the LM like most models in the Lexus lineup will be based on a Toyota, in this case the third-generation Alphard minivan sold overseas.
