A prototype for Audi's next A5 has been spotted. The prototype is for the A5 Sportback hatchback, but prototypes for a new A5 Avant wagon are also out and about. A debut is expected later this year, though only the Sportback is expected to reach the U.S.

Nissan has a new package for the Frontier that adds some genuine off-road upgrades. It's called the Forsberg Edition package, and it was inspired by upgrades fitted to a Frontier concept that came first in class in the NORRA 500 race in Mexico last fall.

Mercedes-Benz's CLE-Class Coupe has spawned its convertible sibling. The new CLE-Class Cabriolet serves as a single replacement for the former C-Class and E-Class convertibles, and should be in U.S. showrooms later this year.
