Mercedes-Benz is working on a redesign for its CLA compact sedan. Today we have the first spy shots of the wagon variant known as the CLA Shooting Brake. The new CLA is due out next year but sadly the wagon will likely skip the United States.

The Lexus LX receives the Inspiration Series treatment for 2019. Just 500 examples of the special SUVs will be built, each priced from a little over $100,000. Each will also come in a sinister-looking black finish.

The 570S represents the entry level of the McLaren lineup, but there's nothing entry level about the car as we recently found out in our test drive of the Spider version. A 562-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 sits behind the driver, and it pushes the car to a top speed of 204 mph. In other words, proper supercar numbers.

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