BMW-S-i4 Is An Electric Game Changer

June 20th, 2022 by

Sometimes, I think BMW doesn’t get enough credit for how forward-thinking it is. The brand has often courted controversy with out-there styling that broke classical moulds – only to have the rest of the industry follow in its footsteps in subsequent years. BMW was the first to bring a big screen to vehicle dashboards, unifying…

The BMW iX Is The Most Desirable Electric Luxury SUV

April 25th, 2022 by

Initial coverage of the all-electric BMW iX was concentrated around its controversial looks. Built on the same styling elements as the somewhat more compact iNext concept car, the iX definitely doesn’t look like any BMW you’ve ever seen on the road. Its one-box shape, giant “grille” elements and skinny lights make it a very different…

Audi S E-Tron Sportback Really Feels Like Something Special

February 21st, 2022 by

Audi’s e-tron, one of the original premium German electric vehicles, has a new sibling called sportback. Substituting a sleek, teardrop-shaped side profile for the more practical boxy SUV shape, the e-tron sportback sure is a looker, especially in S Line trim, with a blacked-out front “grille,” giant 22-inch wheels, and orange brake calipers. As you…

The ID-4 Is The Tipping Point For Volkswagen and For Mainstream SUVs

February 14th, 2022 by

Volkswagen isn’t new to electric cars. In fact, as far back as 2014, the German brand was selling an electric Golf in Europe, with the E-Golf launching in North America in 2017. But, given that car’s relatively limited range, and the fact that it was a car when most new-vehicle buyers want an SUV, the…

Volkswagen S New GTI Is More Relevant Than Ever

January 20th, 2022 by

Introduced in 1976, Volkswagen’s Golf GTI is (sigh…) about the same age as I am. A nameplate doesn’t stick around that long without a rock-solid formula, and the GTI’s formula is one of the best. Take an already exceptionally well-rounded hatchback; add some extra power, poise, and driving fun; add some red pinstriping; and you…

Review Mini Cooper S Electric

December 29th, 2021 by

Of all the gasoline cars on the market that seemed natural to go electric, the Mini Cooper has to be at the top of the list. Small, zippy, and so at home in urban environments, a typical Mini has a short “radius” from home base, its life composed of short cut-and-thrust trips for which electric…

Review Porsche Taycan 4s Cross Turismo

December 9th, 2021 by

When Porsche first introduced the Taycan, I was prepared, as an old-school fan of the brand, to dislike it. From its electric power to its weight, inset and hooded headlights, and its lack of sound, the Taycan was nothing like any Porsche I’d driven and loved before. But after just a couple of minutes behind…

BMW S New M4 Is One Car To Do It All

May 25th, 2021 by

I’m a little conflicted by the new BMW M4. On the one hand, it is a magnificently capable automobile, with power, speed, handling, and comfort that give it one of the broadest and deepest operating envelopes of any car on sale today. On the other, for those of us that are enthusiasts of what I’d…
