Prices for the facelifted Peugeot 5008 have been announced. The range starts at £18,800 for the 1.6-litre VTi model in entry-level Access specification. All models have a price increase of between £200 and £350 over the outgoing car.

Rolls-Royce has launched a special edition of the Ghost, dubbed V-Specification. The limited edition models feature a 30bhp power increase from the Ghost's 6.6-litre V12 engine. Special V-Specification motifs can be seen both on the exterior paintwork and inside.

Honda has launched a new aftercare package, which includes servicing, warranty and roadside assistance for five years and for £500. Called Five, the package is available on any new Honda model.

Jaguar Land Rover plans to recruit 600 new people within the next four years for its new Engine Manufacturing Centre near Wolverhampton. The company says it has invested over £500 million in the centre so far, where new recruits will be working on the production line.

Mercedes-Benz is offering free accident recovery to all owners of its vehicles, regardless of age or mileage. As part of the new scheme, the firm will recover any Mercedes-Benz vehicle and take it to an approved workshop for repairs.
