Call it diminishment through the exploration of ever-greater dimensional achievements. Call it a branding exercise. But don’t make the mistake of labelling the 2017 BMW X4 M40i “fun to drive”, or “engaging”, because despite its faintly detectable call-backs to the German automaker’s famed Motorsport division – bright blue paint, vestigial M badge o
SPARTANBURG, South Carolina – Given the complexity of our route down Mount Pisgah, our speed was probably a lot more modest than it felt from behind the wheel. But the satisfaction lies not in how quickly you reach the destination, but in how much you derive from the journey.
Surprisingly engaging and feels much lighter than it looks.
“Cool – does it come as an AWD wagon?” asked my dad, when I showed him the new BMW M2.
In M40i trim, the X4 is a hot-rod luxury wagon-ish thing.
He likes the M2, but likes the idea of an AWD M2 wagon even better. Dad wishes every sports car came in an AWD wagon, for his skis, and February commute, and stuff like that. “No,” I replied.
A new BMW X4 is coming. The second-generation model gets bigger, lighter and roomier, with more tech and more active safety.
The X4 is the coupe version of the 2018 BMW X3 crossover SUV, all new last year. Although it's clearly still a four-door crossover and not a coupe. We'll call it the stylish version. The arching roof and sloped rear glas
Can we be honest with each other here for a minute? Do you really need that silly “sport activity coupe” thing you’re driving? Are you putting that extra couple of inches of ground clearance to good use? Is the gravel laneway to your cottage riddled with that many potholes, roots, and rocks?

As much as we humans like to pretend we are civilized, well-mannered or in any other way refined, it has been proven time and time again that we are slaves to our baser instincts. From magazine covers to beer commercials, the relevance is irrelevant, and words and images elicit a r
Mazda will reveal its all-new CX-4 crossover April 25, during the Beijing auto show's media preview.
Not that this car is any big surprise; it's been rattling around the rumour mill for months, especially following Mazda's creation of the Koeru concept ; even based on the single CX-4 teaser image Mazda has given us, it's pretty clear this and t
Cadillac is working on a three-row crossover model to slot between the forthcoming XT5 and Escalade , according to the brand's president, Johann de Nysschen.
The tip comes from Automotive News , which spoke to de Nysschen at Caddy's press event for the XT5.
A three-row crossover would compete with existing upscale models like the Infinit
It's been a matter of months since the redesigned 2017 Audi Q5 compact crossover reached showrooms and already the German luxury automaker is looking seriously at further expanding its CUV line with a pair of future models that will likely be dubbed Q4 and Q6.
That's what Audi chair Rupert Stadler reportedly told Aussie mag CarAdvice in an i
In today's we-saw-that-coming files, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has given the go-ahead for his company to begin building a four-door coupe variant of the Cayenne luxury SUV.
The news comes via the UK's Autocar , which says the couped Cayenne is set to go on sale in Britain in the fourth quarter of 2019 as a 2020 model, suggesting a production lau
Arriving in the fourth quarter of 2016, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4Matic will make for a spicy offering in the premium compact crossover segment. And if you find Mercedes’ recent revamping of its naming strategy confusing, you’re not alone.
The full-blown AMG vehicles with hand-built V8 turbo engines carry the Mercedes-AMG 63 moniker (with t
The Montreal International Auto Show (MIAS) isn't the highest profile auto show in the annual circuit of new vehicle expositions, but it does hold the distinction of being the first show held in Canada every year, and the first place Canadians can see some of the newest cars and trucks and concepts up close and personal.

What if someone poured soy milk in your cappuccino – without asking? What if Justin Bieber covered Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven on a keytar? What if someone made you guacamole – and then put peas in it?
Sometimes, the original is best. Certainly it seems so in the automotive world, where traditions are formed over long product arcs, and t
The premium crossover marketplace has a heap of products calling out for the bucks of Canadians, and arguably, none turns heads rolling down the road as easily as the Range Rover Evoque . One’s eyes would tire before identifying all of the intricate shapes and lines and textures, and the accented, sculpted bits that set the Evoque’s body apart wit

Lusted after by fans of high-strung, German-engineered performance cars, the BMW M3 entered its fourth generation for model year 2007, packing, for the first time, a V8 engine. Not just any V8 engine, either, but a wound-up, hand-built, 4.0L beastie cranking out a g
