Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 21 November 2014 17:30

The new McLaren P13 - the junior sports car in the fledgling McLaren line-up - will be launched in spring 2015, the company has confirmed. And this is the first official photograph of McLaren's 911 with the doors up, confirming it will have the swan doors made famous on the 650S and P1. This additional photograph joins the disguised photo issued earlier ...

Vauxhall Corsa VXR (2015) spied at the Nurburgring

Rated 4 out of 54

Tim Pollard, 20 November 2014 16:20

You're looking at a barely disguised 2015 Vauxhall Corsa. Or, to be precise, its Opel Corsa OPC continental cousin. CAR magazine's spy photographers were on hand at the Nurburgring when the Corsa hot hatch shot past during the final stages of evaluation testing. And judging by the scant disguise on this pocket rocket, we'd say the Vauxhall Corsa VXR is ...

It’s all change in BMW world on various levels. The 2-series Active Tourer is the first front-wheel drive BMW. The brand’s first MPV, too. And in 2015, it’ll join the ranks of BMW’s burgeoning plug-in hybrid set. The technology will be shared with the next X1 - and what’s unusual about Munich’s solution is that it powers the rear wheels. ...

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Tim Pollard, 11 November 2014 09:48

The VW Golf GTI has become a firm favourite of ours in the hot hatch department, and we’re fans of the Golf R too. But there’s a surprise in store for pocket rocket fans in 2015: Volkswagen will launch the Golf R400 concept as a production car. Yes, you read that right: next year you’ll be able to buy a ...

VW Golf SUV heads off road in 2018

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Georg Kacher, 10 November 2014 12:51

The VW Golf is set to get muddy, CAR can reveal. Volkswagen’s engineers are currently working on the first SUV to wear a Golf badge, scheduled to join the market alongside the Mk8 Golf hatch in 2018. Predictably, the Golf SUV is neither a hardcore mud-wrestler nor a tarted-up Cross Golf; it falls somewhere between the two camps, in an ...

Cadillac ATS-V (2015): the BMW M3/M4 from the US

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Cadillac knows a thing or two about high-performance super-saloons - and it'll unveil a pair of go-faster ATS-V models at this month's 2014 Los Angeles motor show. Think of the Cadillac ATS-V as a rival to the European quick set of BMW M3/M4, Mercedes C63 AMG and Audi RS4. Photographed here ahead of the planned LA debut on 19 November 2014, ...

BMW 2-series Grand Tourer: the LWB Active Tourer

Rated 3.5 out of 53.5

Tim Pollard, 03 November 2014 15:56

BMW will in summer 2015 release the 2-series Grand Tourer, a longer and mildly restyled Active Tourer with a stretched wheelbase and longer rear overhang to free up even more space for limbs and luggage within this most practical of BMWs. Thanks to the extended roofline and the almost upright tailgate, the Grand is said to provide just enough headroom ...

VW Golf Mk8: what to expect from 2018 Golf

Rated 3 out of 53

Georg Kacher, 27 October 2014 15:44

Blink and you might indeed miss the differences between recent VW Golf generations. The jump from Mk6 to Mk7 was especially minuscule from a cosmetic point of view - and it sounds like the Mk8 coming in 2018 won’t shake the boat too radically. Instead of ditching the Golf’s iconic style, Wolfsburg is set on delivering ever more technology under ...

Rated 4 out of 54

CJ Hubbard, 23 October 2014 13:21

Serendipity is a wonderful thing – a prototype version of the new Honda Civic Type R just drove right by CAR photographer Richard Pardon while he was out in central London. And no, it wasn’t a pre-arranged set-up; these shots come directly from his iPhone. Given the amazingly subtle prototype wrap and the obvious surfeit of challenging driving roads in the ...
