- Daimler Will Recall 3 Million Diesel Cars Across Europe to Fix Emissions
- Voluntary measure extends existing recall to improve emissions
- Carmaker says upgrade will be done free of charge to customers
Daimler AG moved to head off a growing crisis over emissions concerns by voluntarily recalling more than 3 million Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles in Europe, marking the latest blow to the technology since Volkswagen AG’s cheating scandal erupted nearly two years ago.

- 2018 Honda Accord gains efficiency and refinement, loses V6 and coupe
10th-generation Honda Accord revealed: Sleek new look echoes the Civic.
About a month ago, we were lucky enough to get a brief taste of the all-new 2018 Honda Accord in Japan. While that drive allowed us to sample the car's new powertrains, we had to wait until today to get the full lowdown on the car, which was just revealed. The 10th-gen Accord follows one of the most successful iterations of Honda's midsize sedan ever. The ground-up design packs new styling inside and out and controversially, drops the solid but aging V6 for a turbocharged inline four.
The overall shape is similar to that of the current Honda Civic. It looks longer, lower, and wider than the outgoing model with a steep fastback-style roof.

- Alpina B5 Biturbo (2017): Introduction - June 27, 2017
Faster than a BMW M5
Alpina B5 Biturbo continues as a touring tourM5 ? The decision between Alpina and BMW has always been a type question. The absolute athletes have access to the M5 , who places emphasis on comfort and understatement at the same performance, takes the B5. Especially since the Alpina, unlike the BMW, is not electronically braked. The new B5 Biturbo is supposed to be as fast as 330 km / h. An extrastarken Kombi offers only Alpina with the B5 Touring, because BMW has saved the M5 Touring two generations ago. With 608 hp, the new Alpina B5 biturbo is just as strong as the upcoming M5 F90 . At the maximum torque, Alpina with 800 Nm is even ahead of the M5, which leaves a maximum of 750 Nm on the xDrive. Despite brachial performance, the B5 remains visibly reserved. Alpina is the perfect balance between sportiness and elegance. The 4.4-liter V8 is supplied with fresh air via the large air intakes at the front. New is the Alpina free-weaving lettering in the front spoiler, which is optionally painted in chrome, silver, gold or black. The typical Alpina trim in silver or gold is also available for the new B5 Biturbo.
