2020 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron Concept

2020 Audi Q4 Sportback E-Tron Concept

It is essentially the standard Q4 e-tron but in a much sexier Sportback avatar

Audi is arguably the most active brand today when it comes to EVs. The company had announced a bold claim that it will launch 20 new EVs by 2025, and surprisingly, it seems to be on track.

The German automaker has added yet another vehicle to its EV portfolio, the Q4 Sportback e-tron, which happens to be its seventh fully electric vehicle. The company revealed the concept version for now and the real deal is expected to go on sale sometime in 2021.

2022 Audi Q4 e-tron

The Q4 e-tron is shaping out to be a well-spec’d product with a big price advantage over the Tesla Model Y

The Volkswagen Group has made some phenomenal strides in recent times. From being caught in Dieselgate a few years back to running a few of the most proactive brands in electrification today, the German group has come a long way. One of its most prominent brands, Audi, also has a few electric models in the works. The automaker’s next electric vehicle will be the Q4 e-tron, which was previewed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

Audi recently revealed that the SUV will launch at the end of 2020 and is set to go on sale in 2021. Although it might be the brand’s fifth EV, there are a lot of eyes on it since it will be the first four-ringed electric vehicle to be pinned on Volkswagen’s MEB architecture. It was recently spotted performing cold-weather tests in Northern Sweden.

Update 7-6-2020: The Audi Q4 E-tron has finally be spied out on public roads and, unlike the mule we saw earlier this year, this baby is looking pretty close to production ready. Check it out in the spy shots section below.

The planning is so intricate that even the reveal plan for the Bronco is planned well in advance.

According to Bronco6g, Ford will be releasing a teaser showing the silhouette of all the different body types – including the two-door version – of the Bronco on July 6. Not just this; the image that will be posted is also leaked on the forum!

Fresh Looks, New Tech, and Electrification Spearhead the Many Changes of the 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan R packs 315 horsepower

It’s been almost four years since Volkswagen launched the second-generation Tiguan, and the crossover was just unveiled with a mid-cycle facelift. The Tiguan was mildly revised inside and out, but there’s big news in the form of a plug-in hybrid model, a performance-oriented R version, and a new AWD system with selective wheel torque control. Let’s find out more about all of that below.

Falling For the Ford Mach-E's 84-Month Financing Deal Will Cost You BIG Money

Falling For the Ford Mach-E’s 84-Month Financing Deal Will Cost You BIG Money

You might want to reconsider your financing options for the Ford Mach-E

Order books for the 2021 Ford Mach-E have finally opened, and it’s being offered with a number of financing options – including an 84-month “deal.” That sounds intriguing, right? After all, that has to make for a much smaller payment than, say, 48 month financing. There’s a big catch, here, though, and it’s almost worthy of being called a scam. That 84-month financing deal, isn’t actually a deal at all, and will end up costing you ridiculous amounts of money.

2021 Opel Mokka-e

Revolutionary design makes the Mokka-e a downright looker

Opel/Vauxhall’s first all-electric SUV is called Mokka-e and comes with a radical design that’s far from what the Mokka has been showing since its inception.

Aided by the fusion with the PSA Group, the Germans seem to have finally found a direction for their future lineup, both design- and powertrain-wise, at least as electrification is concerned. Here’s all you need to know about the new Opel Mokka-e.

2021 Kia Seltos - Driven

2021 Kia Seltos - Driven

The Kia Seltos - a car that avoids the flaws commonly found in the subcompact crossover market

The subcompact crossover class has so much potential. Best-selling “compact” models like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Chevrolet Equinox have gotten fantastically spacious, refined — and expensive. A modern CR-V or RAV4 is just as big, fancy, and costly as midsize models used to be. For lots of people, they’re still a great deal: for as little as $25,000, you get ample space for four or even five adults and their stuff, all the latest advanced safety features, a fully featured touchscreen infotainment system, and great gas mileage. But lots of people don’t need or even want something this big, or at least aren’t eager to pay for it. So most automakers now offer a subcompact model that’s smaller and less expensive than their compact.

What’s puzzling, though, is how flawed most of these subcompact crossovers have proven to be. Many of them are polarizing styling statements, sometimes with looks that compromise their utility even more than their scaled-down dimensions do. A surprising number of them offer no all-wheel-drive. Some suffer from execution flaws like underpowered yet inefficient engines, compromised interior layouts, or clumsy driving dynamics. Each model that gets a lot right has also had at least one serious flaw — whether it’s the fun-to-drive but cramped Hyundai Kona and Mazda CX-3 and CX-30; the spacious but slow, noisy Honda HR-V; the pleasant but overpriced Nissan Rogue Sport; the off-road-ready, on-road-jerky Jeep Renegade and Subaru Crosstrek; or a host of other would-be contenders. That’s to say nothing of the ones that, well, don’t get a lot right. Why, oh why, couldn’t someone just take everything that people love about a compact crossover and simply make it a little smaller and less expensive?

At long last, that call has been answered. The all-new 2021 Kia Seltos is a mechanical cousin to the Hyundai Kona, but it’s taller and longer. And that’s just what was needed to address the Kona’s lower, more car-like seating position and its tight rear seating. This makes the Seltos the first truly well-rounded subcompact crossover, delivering all-around competence with no disastrous downsides. It’s handsome, functional, fun to drive, fuel-efficient, and affordable. While no car is perfect — certain buyers will gravitate toward the specific advantages of some Seltos competitors — this is the only subcompact crossover that has something for just about everyone.

Jay Leno Has Nothing Bad to Say about the Tesla Model Y

Jay Leno Has Nothing Bad to Say about the Tesla Model Y

Leno has shared his thoughts about Tesla in general, the Supercharger network, hatred towards Elon, and a lot more in this 30-minute video

The Tesla Model Y is a pretty good vehicle and slots in perfectly between the Model 3 and the Model X, although it is much closer to the Model 3. Some folks even call it the crossover version of the Model 3, given the amount of part sharing between the two. The Model Y has had positive reviews generally, but it has a few flaws, just like any other vehicle. However, Jay Leno didn’t have anything bad to say about the electric crossover. It looks like the Model Y has impressed the man who generally dislikes crossovers.

A New Leak Exposes the Volkswagen ID.4 and Its Various Wheel Options

As expected, this EV looks smart, modern, but most importantly, a normal SUV and not some spaceship

Thanks to China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, we now know what the production-version Volkswagen ID.4 will look like. The crystal-clear images of the ID.4 were leaked by the department and show the exterior of the EV from all the angles.

The images were picked up by VWIDTalk.com and also show the different wheel designs on offer. The all-electric SUV is due for launch later this year, but this is a nice surprise. Will this lead to Volkswagen launching the ID.4 any sooner?

Ford Mach-E And Hands-Free Driving - Safer Than Your Typical Mustang Driver?

Ford’s hands-free system will be available on over 100,000 miles of highways in the States and Canada

Ford has gotten noticeably aggressive in the last couple of years. Apart from the regular updates in its lineup, the company is working on its most-important product, the Ford F-150, as well as developing the most-anticipated return of the year, the Bronco, simultaneously. Recently, the company took a dig at Jeep Wrangler by calling the Bronco superior, and now it is picking a fight with Tesla by competing directly with the Model Y in offering hands-free driving on the Mustang Mach-E from next year.

2021 Nissan Rogue - Juke-Like Exterior DNA, Impressive Interior, Subpar Performance

The 2021 Nissan Rogue is a bit disappointing under the hood

Introduced in 2013, the second-generation Nissan Rogue is still a solid SUV, but it’s a bit long in the tooth as of 2020. If you were waiting for a new version, the Japanese firm just unveiled the third-gen crossover for the 2021 model year. It looks fresh on the outside, more upscale on the inside, and packs lots of new technology and safety features. Let’s have a closer look at it below.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek

2021 Subaru Crosstrek

These updates make the 2021 Crosstrek an absolute cracker of a package

The Subaru Crosstrek is one of the most underrated crossovers available in the market today. It is one of the best-selling Subarus in the States, but not the breadwinner for the Japanese automaker. The crossover has been lauded for its excellent overall value for money, hatch-like driving experience, and versatility. It is essentially an Impreza with an off-road bias.

The company introduced the second-gen of the crossover in 2018, and for the 2021 model, Subaru has refreshed the car. It comes with a few aesthetic changes, a new mill under the hood, and a new trim. Will this help boost the Crosstrek’s sales?

This $550 Lift Kit for the Subaru Crosstrek Is Actually Worth Having

Add more ruggedness to your Crosstrek with this affordable aftermarket treat

The Subaru Crosstrek isn’t poised to win any beauty contests. It doesn’t shine when it comes to cabin excitement, just like it doesn’t shine if you’re looking for nippy accelerations off the line.

However, the Crosstrek wasn’t designed to impress visually, nor through performance. It has one task, and one task only: offer a tad more rugged character than a hatchback without compromising on ride and handling. And its this character that gets a boost with a little help from Crawford Performance.

Ford’s Alliance With Volkswagen Means the Next Ford EV Will Be a Badge-Engineered ID4 Crossover

Ford Will Be Using Volkswagen’s MEB Architecture for its Future EVs

The Ford-Volkswagen alliance has been brewing for a couple of years now. Things started looking stale in between, but it looks like everything is getting back on track.

According to Ford Authority, the alliance between the two automakers is expected to be finalized by the end of June. Also, the German automaker’s board has approved several projects, one of which is a new Ford electric vehicle that will be underpinned by Volkswagen’s MEB platform. Do you think it will be a badge-engineered ID.4 crossover?
