British Prime Minister Theresa May will on Wednesday hold talks with EU Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker and chief negotiator Michel Barnier, ahead of a summit to set the bloc's Brexit "red lines". In the first such meeting between the three key players, they will discuss the upcoming negotiations on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union over dinner at May's Downing Street residence. Brussels has hardened its position in recent days, making new demands over financial services, immigration and the bills Britain must settle before ending its 44-year-old membership of the bloc. The leaders of the other 27 EU nations will meet on April 29 to formally approve the guidelines for Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator for Brexit, although the talks will not begin until June. At Downing Street, both sides are likely to "reiterate their positions going into the Brexit talks", Nina Schick, associate director at advisory firm Hanbury Strategy, told AFP.

Audi sources suggest these will become a common element on all of the company’s upcoming models. New production techniques are claimed to allow Audi to achieve corner radii of 2.5mm on panel creases, compared to the 8.0mm achieved by its premium-brand competition. At the rear, the new A7 is set to feature a full-width taillight, which will also become a key design element on the upcoming A8 and Q8, as well as Audi’s first fully dedicated electric model, the production version of the 2015 e-tron quattro concept. The new-look tail-light is claimed to counterbalance a heavy tapering effect to the flanks towards the rear of the car, helping to accentuate the visual width of the new Audi by providing a greater focus on horizontal design elements. The A7, which will compete against the BMW 6-series GranCoupe , Porsche Panamera and Mercedes-Benz CLS , goes against the prevailing trend towards ever-greater dimensions in the class, with Audi insiders hinting at a 70mm reduction in overall length compared with the 4970mmlong current model.

This Fall, BMW will unveil their first BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo , essentially the successor of the often criticized 5 Series GT, but with a new nameplate.The successor to the current 5 Series GT uses the long wheelbase of the 5 Series , which is only available in China, and will almost surpass the five-meter mark. This gives the 6 GT the best prerequisites for a more elegant roofing line, which justifies the rise of the concept in the 6 Series and eliminates the biggest criticism of the first generation: many potential customers could not make friends with the rear design of ​​the Gran Turismo. The slightly longer length and a slightly flatter roof line ensures that the rear end can be drawn much more dynamically and thus more pleasing than before. BMW will position the 6 Series GT between the 5 Series and 7 Series and, luckily, it will borrow a thing or two from both of them.

When quizzed about whether Volvo was ready for such a shift, Green assured us that the forthcoming CMA platform (used to underpin the upcoming XC40 SUV) could be shortened to accommodate an Audi A1-sized supermini . “CMA can be made a bit smaller and the length is not really a problem,” Green added. “It’s more about how much space and legroom you want to have in the rear; that’s the compromise. “If you want to go one size down you can take it most from the length. You can work with the shape of the car.” Green suggested that the historic correlation between the price and size of a vehicle is going to change in the future. He hinted that as cities become more congested and more stringent emissions regulations come into force, buyers would be forced into smaller, more economical vehicles. For that reason, Green predicts that many buyers will want all of the luxury trinkets, high-quality interiors and big-car features as they’re used to, but in something with a dramatically reduced footprint.

BERLINIvanka Trump’s personal brand, upcoming book and burgeoning position on the world stage have all been based on her image as a do-it-all feminist and working mother. That powerful package has resonated in some parts of the world, like China, where the first daughter is worshiped by young women infatuated with her looksnary an errant hair out of place, a perfect outfit rarely repeated — and awed by her apparent ability to juggle family and career. Judging from her mixed reception here, European women are more incredulous about Ivanka Trump's brand of feminism and her attempts to reconcile her own moderate politics with her father's fierce conservatism. And they viewed her arrival in Berlin, her first international trip as a representative of the U.S. government, on Tuesday with the deep uncertainty they reserve for all things brandedTrump, shorthand for a hard-right, nationalistic, America First worldview.

Hold on to your hats or give them some time, because the fifth untitled Indiana Jones movie will be strolling into theaters in 2020. That's one year later than planned it's an election year, if you can even imagine such a thing. SEE ALSO: The end is near for cinema. Go to the movies while there's still time The latest Indiana Jones project with Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford was originally slated for July 19, 2019, but is now scheduled for July 10, 2020 (Jon Favreau's The Lion King took over the 2019 date ). On the film's release date, Ford will be just shy of his 78th birthday. Little is known yet about the fifth installment in the series besides Ford's return (Shia LaBeouf is mysteriously absent from any press releases thus far). Based on that and The Force Awakens and the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, there's a solid theory out there that the curmudgeonly actor is killing off his most iconic characters .
