2017 Subaru Impreza, Alpina B5 spied, BMW 530e: What's New @ The Car Connection

October 19, 2016

Subaru says that its all-new Impreza compact sedan and hatchback lineup will sticker from $19,215 when the models hit the market by the end of this year, a minor increase over the outgoing model. 

Audi dealers won't have a diesel engine to offer you if you're looking for a Q7 in the United States, but the automaker says its new 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gas engine should help bridge some of that gap by delivering an estimated 22 mpg combined, all for a hair under $50,000. 

The 2017 Kia Cadenza isn't by any means the brand's first outing into the luxury car world, but it's certainly the brand's best effort yet. A near facsimile of what Lexus used to offer, the Cadenza doesn't necessarily advance the luxury game—but it does prove that the Korean automaker's push upmarket is here to stay.

2018 BMW Alpina B5 spy shots

There’s a new  5-Series, and that means we will soon see a new B5 from semi-official BMW tuner Alpina. A prototype for the car has been spotted testing ahead of a likely debut early in 2017.

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF is the targa-topped Miata that some fans of the car have been hoping would come to light. Not everyone is excited about the cut-up coupe, but there are some enthusiasts that prefer a real roof over their heads and this MX-5 delivers just that.

A barnacle is an arthropod. It's referred to as an encruster, as it an animal that seeks to permanently adhere itself to a hard material. There's a new type of barnacle out there, and this one seeks to adhere itself to your windshield but not on a permanent basis. Say hello to the Barnacle parking enforcement device.

The BMW 5-Series has always slotted between the Bavarian maker's high-volume 3-Series and full-size 7-Series in size and price.

If you haven't placed your order for a Tesla Model 3, the electric car builder now says that your request won't be fulfilled until the middle of 2018.

Owners love them, but modern electric cars have not made a large dent in sales of internal-combustion cars since becoming widely available five years ago.
