2022 Citroen C5 X

2022 Citroen C5 X

The third generation C5 adopts a very weird body style!

Citroen C5 started its life as a station wagon and a notchback back in 2001 when the first generation was launched. A sedan was added to the lineup when the second generation was launched in 2007. Now, the third generation comes with a few interesting changes.

With a design inspired by the third generation C4 and the CXperience concept, the new C5 "combines the modernity and appeal of an SUV, the elegance and status of a saloon, and the versatility and practicality of a station wagon." In another words, the new C5 X is now a "liftback." Confusing, no?

2021 CUPRA Tavascan Extreme E Concept

The CUPRA Tavascan Extreme E Concept gives us a glimpse at how extreme the brand’s future could be

Who said electric cars can’t be fun, and most importantly, who said CUPRA is not going to survive? In fact it did survive, and is doing more than that: it is impressing the world with every car it unveils.

Its last creation - the Tavascan Extreme E Concept - is a 100% concept car built with off-roading in mind. It also offers a second glimpse to the CUPRA’s future Tavascan - or, the company’s second 100% electric model after the Born announced a few months ago. As a reminder, we got a first look at the Tavascan back in 2019 when a concept with the same name was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

A Porsche 911 Turbo Gives The BMW M5 CS A Taste Of Its Own Medicine On The Drag Strip

The BMW M5 CS is a bully on the drag strip, but it fell flat against a Porsche 911 Turbo

BMW has upped the ante with the 2022 M5 CS. It makes more power than the M5 Competition, which itself comes with over 600 horses. It is also 230 pounds lighter, thanks to the generous use of carbon fiber. It has been a terror for other stock cars on the drag strip lately, but it seems like another German is here to put it in its place.

The folks at Throttle House decided to pit the BMW M5 CS against the Porsche 911 Turbo, and the latter has proved why it is in a league of its own.
