The replacement of the 1 Series Coupe is here and is now called 2 Series Coupe. BMW already used the "2" as a model designation for the 1966 BMW 1600-2. Unlike its predecessor, this new model moves away from the 1 Series and becomes a standalone car that is also larger in size and features a new design.

The Cadillac Escalade has consistently been chosen by the rich, and in particular by rappers, as their everyday car. Most of the times they just put enormous wheels, darken the windows, and paint the car black, so it is with no surprise that the introduction of a new version is entitled to a lot of attention.

Suzuki premiered its new compact SUV concept, the iV-4, at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Heir to Suzuki’s DNA, this new compact vehicle embodies a new automotive idea, the personal compact SUV. This idea is also promoted by the name iV-4, since "i" stands for “individuality”, “V” means "vehicle”, and “4” for “four wheel-drive”.

Frankfurt was the venue chosen by Nissan to unveil the all-new X-Trail (if you live in the U.S., its name is Rogue) compact sport utility vehicle. This SUV will be one sale from July 2014 and will be built in different manufacturing sites around the world to supply all markets where it is sold.
BMW finally revealed this sports car for which we waited anxiously. It combines sports performance with a lightweight construction and high efficiency. This 2+2 vehicle is the first plug-in hybrid produced by the German car manufacturer and the second model from new brand BMW i.
Finally, Porsche showed the production version of the Porsche 918 Spyder, but this is specially important because we already knew almost everything about this hybrid sports car. And the final values, announced by the German car manufacturer, are pretty amazing.

This concept was created with the sole purpose of showing the capabilities of the new advanced aluminum monocoque architecture, codenamed iQ[Al], but there is a good chance this vehicle will be produced.

Seems those patent drawings that i showed you the other day were real. Here you have the first official pictures of the 2014 Land Rover Discovery which is not that different from its predecessor. The public reveal will, of course, take place at the Frankfurt Motor Show that stars next week.

Peugeot is on fire. First they showed the 308 R, then the 3008, after that the 208 Hybrid FE, and now they revealed the facelifted 5008. The biggest changes happened on the front of this compact MPV, which now follows the same design language used by more recent models of the French car manufacturer, like the 208 and 308.

Some time ago, Peugeot revealed the facelift of the Chinese 3008, and at that time we thought this was coming to Europe, but it seems that isn't true. Peugeot made several changes that give it a unique appearance as compared to the Chinese model, at least in relation to the front, the rest is a different story.

This LUV (Luxury Utility Vehicle), as Lexus calls it, has a completely new front end that follows the same design found on other recent models of the Japanese brand, a redesigned rear bumper, and the the rest remains pretty much the same. The interior has not been forgotten and received several enhancements.

And what a machine this is. The 458 Speciale has the most powerful atmospheric engine ever produced by the Italian brand. The 4.5-liter V8 generates an impressive 605PS (445kW or 597bhp) @9000rpm and 540Nm (398lb/ft) @6000rpm, allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in 3 seconds and will take 9.1 seconds to reach 200km/h (124mph) from standstill.
This small redesign greatly improved the appearance of the top of the range Audi. The front now features a squarer grille, a new hood, a redesigned bumper, and the innovative Matrix LED headlight technology that was heavily promoted over the past weeks. At the back, Audi changed the bumper that now includes two rhomboid tailpipes (except S8), and the LED tail lights have become flatter.
Our good friends from Russia did it again. For the hundredth time they reveal the official images of a car before its official presentation. This time its the Opel (or if you prefer, Vauxhall) Monza that got to be leaked ahead of its official reveal which was scheduled for the Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

This didn't take long. One day after Volkswagen showed the first teaser, the new Golf R gets its official reveal. And it is a little bit disappointing. I know Volkswagen has a very conservative approach to their cars, but the new R is in the top of the range in the Golf lineup and deserved a more aggressive styling. But i will let you comment on the darkened LED headlamps and tail lights, redesigned bumpers, and the new 18-inch wheels (with optional 19-inch wheels).

Seems that the car teased some time ago by Subaru isn't that special version we weren't waiting for, but instead it's the regular version with a few new parts. We were hoping for a sportier version, possibly turbocharged, with a large increase in power to make this car even more fun to drive, but we can hope the near future will bring that car, for now, meet the tS.
