Spy Shots: An Early Look At the Audi A3 Allstreet

Spy Shots: An Early Look At the Audi A3 Allstreet

Audi is trying to create a sub-segment in a segment that itself is a sub-segment of another segment. Confused? So are we!

If you don’t like crossovers and don’t want to settle for a low-slung sedan, Audi might have the solution for you. A high-riding A3 has been spotted testing around the Nürburgring. It was labeled as the A3 Allroad by most of us, but it looks like this vehicle is all set to get the ’Allstreet’ moniker. The ‘Allstreet’ badge has been lifted from the smaller A1 Allstreet, which also received this name very recently after Audi dropped the ‘Citycarver’ suffix. Is this niche going to be the next big thing?

Just like the SL, the next AMG GT will also be offered with an E-Performance badge

We already knew that the next generation AMG GT will bring major changes. First, it will only be offered as a coupe - as the Roadster will be replaced by the new SL, and second, following the footsteps of the SL, it will initially be offered in two versions: GT53 and GT63 - both of which have already been caught testing. A more powerful version will also be offered, however, and just like with the SL, this range-topping plug-in hybrid will wear the E-Performance badge.

2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know

2023 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series II - What You Need to Know

Rolls-Royce has rejigged the Phantom for the 2023 model year, but the changes aren’t too significant

Rolls-Royce has finally updated the eighth-gen Phantom after five long years. The automaker has mentioned that the changes to the updated model are based on inputs from its clients. They “implored Rolls-Royce not to make any major changes to an already iconic motor car”. This is a clear indication that the 2023 Phantom doesn’t come with a whole lot of changes. In fact, Rolls-Royce doesn’t even call it a facelift. It has been labeled as a ‘new expression’.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R Could Be The ULTIMATE Four-cylinder Entry-level Sportbike

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R Could Be The ULTIMATE Four-cylinder Entry-level Sportbike

With the potential to produce more power than the twin-cylinder 500s the ZX-4R could even take on a couple of 650cc bikes

Love it or hate it, electrification is happening as we speak and it’s more a matter of when, not if, as we see the big guns jump aboard the EV train.

However, Kawasaki’s ideology seems a bit different than the rest, as the Japanese bikemaker is trying to whip up some flabbergasting internal combustion engines before it electrifies its portfolio.

A prime example of this is the four-cylinder Ninja ZX-25R and now, it looks like Kawasaki will soon back it up with a 400cc iteration, the Ninja ZX-4R.

2023 Nissan Z Driven – What It’s Really Like to be Behind the Wheel

It’s so much better than 370Z, and yet it’s still affordable

Nissan has taken everything it’s learned from the Z lineup thus far and improved on it in ways we never thought were possible. The old, aging V-6 is gone, only to be replaced by the same V-6 found in the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport 400 with some major improvements. The same platform resides underneath, only it has been updated for improved handling, better safety, and more structural rigidity. Factor in the revised suspension, retro look, and impressive cabin, and this is arguably the best Z in existence.

2023 Polestar 2 Specs, Pricing, and Complete Buyer’s Guide

The Polestar 2 has been updated for the 2023 model year, but is it enough to pose a threat to the Tesla Model 3?

The Polestar 2 has been with us for quite a while now, and over the years, the Swedish EV brand has been giving it incremental updates. For 2023, however, the updates are much more pronounced, especially under the skin, though it’s not significant enough to be considered a mid-cycle facelift.

The Polestar 2 Single Motor now starts at $48,400 (+$2,500), while the Dual Motor version now starts at $51,900 (+$700).

Here’s Proof That Porsche is Sending the 718 Boxster Out With a Bang

The Porsche 718 Boxster Spyder RS arrives in 2023, and it will make for an epic, naturally-aspirated swan song, before the model transitions to electricity

With electricity slowly taking over as the eventual, main propulsion method, even brands such as Porsche, which are big on tradition, are forced to change their focus. For now, the iconic 911 will remain internal-combustion-powered, but things are different for its smaller sibling, the 718, which will go fully electric, in 2025. However, the latest spy footage suggests that the current 718 Boxster will not go down quietly. A hardcore version of the open-top 718 has been spotted and it’s powered by one of the company’s most exciting engines.

This should be on your short list of zombie apocalypse bikes

Whether you plan on proper adventure riding, or just want to forego the trailer action every time you want to hit your favorite trails, the KLX300 has you covered.
