2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe: Bigger, Bolder & More Aerodynamic

The 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is the second-generation model of the German automaker’s 4-Series hatchback. Right off the bat, the resemblance between the all-new 4-Series Gran Coupe and BMW’s all-electric i4 is uncanny. Although the 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe is just half an inch longer than a regular 4-Series Coupe, the new model is significantly bigger, longer, and broader than the first generation. The latest four-door 4-Series is 5.9-inches longer, one-inch wider, and 2.1-inches tall...

2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: Original Baby Benz Has Updated Styling, More Tech & Simplified Trim Levels

Porsche Commemorates the Mercedes-Benz 500 E’s 30th Anniversary

Photo credit: Porsche If you thought Porsche’s first sedan was the Panamera, you’d be wrong. The brand isn’t a stranger to four-door vehicles because it has a history of collaborating with other automakers building fast sedans, wagons, and hot hatches. The Volvo 850 T5R and Audi RS 2 were just some of the vehicles that Porsche helped develop. One of the most recognizable, however, is the Mercedes-Benz 500 E, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary Its blend of comfort and performance made it ...

Eight months after Lucid Motors showed off the final version of its all-electric Air sedan, the company has finally revealed the in-cabin tech — from the curved 34-inch display and second touchscreen to the underlying software, integrated apps and Amazon Alexa voice assistant —that drivers and passengers will use once the automaker begins deliveries of the vehicle in the second half of the year.

Virtuo raises $96M for its streamlined take on car rentals

Car ownership has become pricey and untenable in many towns and cities in Europe: between congestion charges to reduce emissions, parking fees, and traffic, many consumers opt instead to use public transportation, two wheels, cabs or their own legs to get around. To add to that mix for longer journeys, today a startup that’s building a new take on car rental is announcing some funding to scale out its service. Virtuo, a Paris-based startup that has built a very streamlined, all-digital approach ...

A Look Back at the Porsche 911 GT, McLaren F1, and Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR

When McLaren won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans with the F1 GTR entered in the GT1 class, Porsche decided to challenge it a year later with the 911 GT1. Porsche succeeded in beating the McLaren F1; however, that was short-lived because Mercedes-Benz’s CLK GTR essentially killed the class. Carfection has gathered all three legendary street-legal race cars for a group test with the help of some very, very generous owners and DK Engineering. Racing in the GT1 class required a road-going version of th...

2022 Hyundai Kona N: Hyundai Built a Fast Kona & It’s a Good One!

Hyundai spent the first few months of 2021 teasing its newest Kona N high-performance crossover. The beans were recently spilled on the 2022 Hyundai Kona N, and it’s everything we hoped for in a small, fast, and relatively affordable SUV. Hyundai’s N Line reminds me of the early days of BMW’s M and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG divisions, except for one thing: Hyundai N models (including the new Kona N) won’t cost an arm and a leg to enjoy the fun. “Kona N is a true hot SUV with the performance level o...

How Does A Vintage Porsche’s Performance Compare To A New Compact Crossover?

A lot can change in 33 years. Porsche's 911 Carrera 3.2 was the top dog back then. It had just gotten a fresh G50 gearbox with hydraulic clutch actuation and smoother shifts, but not much had changed, mostly because it wasn't broke and Porsche didn't have to fix it. The car was brilliant to drive in its day, and frankly still is. Today, however, everything on the road is ridiculously quick. The theory from the folks at The Fast Lane is that a basic modern turbocharged crossover is going to offe...

All the tech crammed into the 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS

Mercedes-Benz lifted the final veil Thursday on its flagship EQS sedan after weeks of teasers, announcements and even a pre-production drive in which TechCrunch participated.
