Cadillac's new baby sedan to replace the ATS has been spotted for the first time. Expected to go by the name CT4, it will feature rear-wheel drive and a handsome look inspired by 2016's Escala concept.

Mercedes-Benz is working on redesign for its GLE and some shots of the interior just surfaced online. The overall look is a major step up from the outdated design of the current GLE, which actually goes all the way back to the M-Class introduced for 2012.

Only last decade Ford used 30 platforms to underpin its various vehicles sold around the globe. That number was pruned to nine under Alan Mulally's reign, and current CEO Jim Hackett wants to get it down to just five in the coming years.
