Beastly BMW X7 Teased Ahead of Debut

The headline should read “teased again,” as this isn’t the first peek we’ve had of the automaker’s upcoming three-row SUV. Much of the model’s visage was already on display a year ago, when BMW unveiled the X7 iPerformance concept. (It’s funny how the passage of time lessens visual horrors.) A pre-production model also appeared in a photo taken at BMW’s Spartanburg, South Carolina factory late last year, looking no less grotesque than the concept. This is the real thing, however,…

2019 Subaru Forester First Drive

Fifty years ago, Subaru entered the American market with the pint-size 360 city car. Subaru’s vehicles have grown over the years, culminating in the new Ascent three-row crossover, which is the largest car the manufacturer has ever produced. But judging by the redesigned 2019 Subaru Forester, the sweet spot might be somewhere in the middle. Based on our initial impressions of the new Forester, buyers in search of a smaller SUV that still has plenty of capability are in for…

2019 MINI Cooper Countryman Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

In rare cases like the 2019 Mini Countryman, the biggest Mini on offer gets the same spunk as the adorable Cooper, applied to a more useful crossover body that mainstream buyers want. All good things. In other cases, brandalism can end up like “Chicken Soup for the Fisherman’s Soul.” Review continues below The 2019 Countryman gets a 5.8 on our overall scale for hooking the right stuff: it’s more comfortable and good to look at.…

New Audi A6 Avant 2018 review

With new models being launched every year wearing a Q badge on their bootlids, Audi is rapidly becoming an SUV brand that just happens to make hatchbacks, coupes, convertibles and a supercar.
