BMW X4 M-Sport caught on test

BMW has started work on a new generation version of the X4, as seen in the recent spy shots of the one of the prototypes. Now, what we have here are pictures of the controversially designed crossover with the M-Sport design pack. The SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) has been spotted in Munich and the light camouflage covering the test car suggests it won’t be too long until official debut. Underneath, we will find the CLAR architecture, which is set to become the backbone of all BMW models from the 3-Series…

Audi SQ7 spied in India for the first time

The high-performance version of Audi’s seven-seater SUV – the SQ7 was spotted testing in India. Featuring a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine which makes it the most powerful diesel SUV in the world, the SQ7 is expected to be launched here by the end of this year. The Audi SQ7 test mule has been photographed on Indian soil for the first time. A left-hand-drive model, this test mule looks identical to the regular Q7, although the revised grille and fascia, and the 20-inch wheels give away its true identity. Under the…

Volkswagen limits the GTI badge to its hatch-back range of cars only

Volkswagen has history of making thoughtful cars for the masses. The manufacturer’s name itself means ‘people’s-car’ in German. However, Volkswagen has also catered to the enthusiast by offering a little more in their cars which carry the GTI badge. In fact, the Polo GTI (in the global market), launched as the Volkswagen GTI in the Indian market, offers a crazy amount of oomph! However, according to a recent statement made by the Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess, the GTI range of cars are unlikely to get any more additions. Volkswagen boss…

Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder caught on camera

All the positive things that have been said recently about the Lamborghini Huracan Performante hold true for this new drop top version that has been caught on camera with some camouflage. Like the coupe, the Huracan Performante Spyder gets a 5.2-litre V10. It’s the same engine as the base Huracan but retuned here and fitted with a lighter exhaust that exits higher. The result is 30 more horsepower for a total of 631. The new exhaust also leaves room for a bigger rear diffuser, providing even more downforce. Going by…

2017 Audi S7

Overview: At its heart, the 2017 Audi S7 is a 450-hp, all-wheel-drive sedan that piles on amenities, stunning finishes, and world-class construction to make it a top-drawer executive express. And crowning it all is a design that, despite its age, remains a hallmark for beauty and function not just among Audis but among all luxury cars. The S7 sits below only the RS7 in Audi’s mid-size lineup, and there’s just one powertrain available: a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. All-wheel drive and an adaptive suspension are…

2018 Lexus LC500

Lexus’s ongoing plot to develop soul-stirring vehicles appears to be coming together when you first see the stunning 2018 LC500 coupe on the road. Away from the ribbons of Spanish asphalt where we first wheeled it in anger, the LC is even more outrageous to behold. Just know that while the car is IMAX-grade automotive theater, the producers have yet to cast the right engine with a proportional amount of forward thrust—although one is coming. The gaping spindle grille that gives this car the face of an electric razor doesn’t…

2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 Sedan

Purists may knock Mercedes-AMG’s entry-level—and mushrooming—range of “43” models for watering down the brand, as they lack the hand-built engines and mad power output of AMGs with numerically higher badges. Yet even Affalterbach’s modest fettling has produced some impressive vehicles, such as the Porsche Macan–baiting GLC43 crossover and the comparison-test-winning E43 sedan. With much of the latter’s on-road goodness stuffed into the tidier and more affordable C-class, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 4MATIC sedan also earns a spot on that list. The sports sedan formerly known as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C450…

Isuzu MU-X Review

We all have had our Monday morning blues. But a dull, balmy Monday morning with pitter-patter rain is a different level of dreary. The only silver lining in the cloud at that time, was the newest SUV on the block, the Isuzu MU-X, which was draped in a shade of, you guessed it, Silver! Now Isuzu is a company which ‘focuses only on SUVs’ and the last model that it launched, the D-Max V-Cross pickup did decently well and won quite a many hearts for its robust build, good looks…
