Ups & downs: the story of the flying car

  Ups & downs: the story of the flying car Numerous companies are on the cusp of launching a viable flying car, but such projects have been floating about for over a century

Click here to take a look at the best cars coming out in 2021 A-C...

Peugeot 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered

  • Price: £45,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

The Peugeot 508 Peugeot Sport Engineered, to give its full name, will pack around 350bhp, thanks to the combination of a 197bhp 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and two electric motors, one powering each axle for four-wheel drive operation.

The set-up should mark a significant boost in performance over the current flagship, the 508 GT Hybrid. While no official figures have been revealed, the concept which previewed the car at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show (above) used a 11.8kWh battery for an all-electric range of 31 miles, while CO2 emissions were rated at 49g/km.

Fiat 500 2021 review

  Fiat 500 2021 review Impressive first showing for new-era 500. Its fanbase will love it and even naysayers will respect how it drivesOn our city-focused short drive around Turin and the surrounding area, we’re told not to pay much attention to the cabin plastics, infotainment software and calibration of the Level 2 automated safety systems, all of which will be tweaked pre-October. The rest, though, is fair game.

Porsche 911 GT3

  • Price: £120,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

The most hardcore 992-generation 911 is in the latter stages of development, ahead of its launch early next year. We expect it to be powered by the same 493bhp naturally-aspirated 4.0-litre flat-six engine as the 911 Speedster,

and will be offered with a choice of dual-clutch or manual gearboxes, while a rear-wheel steering set-up will also feature.

Although the final production model has yet to be revealed, spy shots show a rear wing inspired by the 911 RSR race car, and the engine cooling vents in the rear haunches have been smoothed over. An even hotter GT3 RS model will follow later.

Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo

  • Price: £85,000 (est)
  • On sale: Mid 2021

It’s only been a year since Porsche launched its first electric vehicle, the Taycan, but it’s set to be joined by a more practical, yet no less attractive, estate variant. Visually, it is to the regular Taycan what the Panamera Sport Turismo is to the hatchback, so it’s identical from the B-pillars forward.

The coolest cars made by non-car makers

  The coolest cars made by non-car makers The Sony Vision-S may be the latest car to be made by a company that doesn’t make cars – but it’s only the latest in a long line

The extended roof should allow a healthy boost in luggage space in the Taycan Cross Turismo, while retaining an elegant shape. It’s likely both the trim line-ups and powertrains will mirror the regular Taycan’s, with power ranging from 429bhp in the 4S to 751bhp in the Turbo S variant.

Range Rover Crossover

  • Price: £70,000 (est)
  • On sale: Late 2021 (est)

Our exclusive image reveals that this will arguably be the most radical Range Rover yet when it reaches showrooms in 2021. The Range Rover Crossover will be a bona-fide luxury car, focusing on design and on-road comfort in a way the brand has never seen before.

The new model will use the same MLA architecture as the next Range Rover, allowing combustion-engined, PHEV or full-EV drive. The latter could feature a twin electric motor set-up. It’ll have a smaller battery than the 100kWh unit slated for the Range Rover, but the range is still expected to exceed 300 miles.

The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2

  The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2 Here's everything we know about The Haunting of Hill House season 2, including potential release date and moreHowever, although this may come from the same creators as The Haunting of Hill House, the new series tells a completely different story – just with some of the same actors. Bly Manor adapts Henry James' classic novella The Turn of the Screw and several other horror stories by the author, most of which have never transitioned to the screen before. Mike Flanagan's back as showrunner – though has not directed any episodes – offering a guiding hand over proceedings.

Skoda Enyaq

  • Price: £33,450
  • On sale: Early 2021

The Enyaq is Skoda’s first purpose-built EV, and its all-electric MEB platform will allow for the plentiful boot space we’ve come to expect from Skoda.

There will be more cabin room than in a Kodiaq, too, despite the car being shorter than an Octavia, while most versions will be rear-wheel drive, but there’s a choice of power outputs along with three battery sizes. There will even be a hot

twin-motor vRS model.

Inside, the dashboard builds on the design of the latest Octavia’s, and it will carry a 13-inch touchscreen – the largest of any MEB car to date.

Skoda Fabia

  • Price: £12,500 (est)
  • On sale: Late 2021

The next-generation Skoda Fabia will make the long-awaited shift to VW’s MQB A0 platform, as used by the current SEAT Ibiza, Volkswagen Polo and Audi A1.

The switch will allow a raft of updated powertrains, cabin technology and improved refinement. While the design is still under wraps, it’s understood that the new car will have a more striking look than today’s model, as previewed by our exclusive image. It’s likely the new Fabia’s engine line-up will focus on a pair of 1.0-litre TSI units, as well as a 148bhp 1.5 TSI.

New on HBO Max (October 2020): All the movies and shows coming to the streaming service

  New on HBO Max (October 2020): All the movies and shows coming to the streaming service Here's everything new on HBO Max this October, including Cats!There really is something for everyone on HBO Max in October. It: Chapter 2 floats on by, as does Emma, new anime series such as God of High School and a little movie by the name of Cats. If you haven’t seen it already, now’s your chance – along with dozens more movies and shows in October.

Skoda Octavia vRS

  • Price: £30,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

The next Octavia vRS will offer buyers the widest choice of powertrains yet, with petrol, diesel and a plug-in hybrid versions available in both hatchback and estate body styles.

The petrol and diesel engines will be familiar to current vRS owners, while the plug-in system is shared with the Golf GTE. It’ll match the petrol engine’s 242bhp output, but CO2 emissions could be as low as 30g/km.

Suspension lowered by 15mm, adaptive dampers and a bespoke steering map will be standard, while petrol-powered versions will feature a limited-slip differential.

Tesla Model Y

  • Price: From £45,000 (est)
  • On sale: Summer 2021

The Tesla Model Y looks like a tall Model 3 with good reason: it shares around 75 per cent of its parts with the brand’s saloon.

But what it lacks in sleek lines it makes up for with versatility, because while performance, range and charging times all impress, it seats up to seven people, too. Tesla claims a range of up to 314 miles, while using the public Supercharger network will see the car add 168 miles of range in just 15 minutes.

Predictably, straight-line pace is mighty, regardless of spec, although the ride is stiffer than some SUV buyers might like.

Toyota RAV4 PHEV

  • Price: £36,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

Toyota’s second plug-in hybrid boasts some impressive headline figures: 302bhp, a 0-62mph time of 6.2 seconds, CO2 emissions of 29g/km and an impressive 38 miles of all-electric range. That’s made possible by the combination of a 2.5-litre petrol engine and a pair of electric motors. The front axle is driven by the engine and one motor, while the rear is driven by the second motor alone.

The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2

  The Haunting of Bly Manor release date, trailer, news, and more on Hill House season 2 Here's everything we know about The Haunting of Hill House season 2, including potential release date and more There's been a disturbance in the force. Almost every major movie which was set for release in 2020 has been pushed back until 2021, meaning our list of upcoming movies is shifting around like sand in a desert storm. It's a struggle to keep up! Most recently, Disney and Warner Bros. decided to delay their superhero movies, Black Widow and Wonder Woman 1984. Looks like Universal had the right idea in early 2020 when they decided to immediately move Fast 9 back a year. That seemed extreme at the time – now it feels like common sense.

The flagship RAV4 has a number of design tweaks over the standard car, including a set of 19-inch alloy wheels, and like the regular hybrid model, the PHEV version will have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Toyota Yaris Cross

  • Price: £24,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

Toyota has been slow to join the baby-SUV party, but the arrival of the Yaris Cross will give it a proper competitor for the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur and Skoda Kamiq.

Unlike the Fiesta Active, this is no jacked-up hatchback; it is far closer to the Ford Puma in size. It’ll be offered with a hybrid powertrain from launch, and two and four-wheel-drive versions will be available. While it will share its wheelbase with the Yaris hatch, it should have more cabin space thanks to being 240mm longer overall and 90mm taller. Indeed, Toyota says the cabin will be roomier than the larger C-HR’s.

Vauxhall Astra

  • Price: From £18,000 (est)
  • On sale: 2021

Vauxhall is pushing ahead with a rapid model makeover in the wake of its takeover by the PSA Group – and one of the big steps will come next year with a new generation of Astra.

The British firm’s boss recently told us that the hatch will get a radical look, incorporating the latest family face and a more aggressive roofline, as seen in our exclusive image.

The new Astra will sit on the same EMP2 platform as the current Peugeot 308, so petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid options will be offered. There’s also the possibility of a VXR PHEV, with twin electric motors and 300bhp.

Vauxhall Mokka

  • Price: £20,000 (est)
  • On sale: Spring 2021

The small SUV market continues to grow, and Vauxhall will reintroduce one of its biggest names when the all-new Mokka arrives in the first quarter of 2021. The latest Mokka sits on the PSA CMP platform – and that means that a pure-electric version of the car will be available alongside a range of 1.2-litre turbo petrol variants, as well as a single 1.5-litre diesel edition.

Chanel celebrates cinema industry to cap Paris Fashion Week

  Chanel celebrates cinema industry to cap Paris Fashion Week PARIS (AP) — Monumental light-bulb encrusted letters spelling CHANEL sparkled over the runway at the Grand Palais on the last day of Paris Fashion Week prefacing a collection celebrating the cinema industry. It brought a pang of nostalgia for better times during this reduced virus-hit season that has been notable for its lack of star power. Like Milan before it, Paris has undertaken an unusual fashion season for Spring-Summer 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The nine-day calendar was a mix of ready-to-wear runway collections with masked guests in seated rows, in-person presentations and completely digital shows streamed online with promotional videos.

Vauxhall’s baby crossover gets a complete styling overhaul, with a totally new front-end look and shorter overhangs but a slightly longer wheelbase. So it should feel even more compact on the road, while matching the interior space of its predecessor.

Volkswagen ID. 4

  • Price: £35,000 (est)
  • On sale: Early 2021

Production of VW’s second ID. model, the ID.4 SUV, has already started, but a slightly delayed official reveal means that UK buyers will probably have to wait until spring 2021 to get one. The ID.4 follows much of the ID.3’s recipe, including that car’s MEB platform, but it has a more conventional SUV look.

Expect the line-up to open with a rear-wheel-drive model, although four-wheel-drive editions will become available over time. There will be a variety of battery sizes, and the largest of these should deliver a range of more than 300 miles between charges.
