PostHeaderIcon Rendering Shows Off the Rebooted Mitsubishi Lancer as a Rally-Bred Crossover Coupe

Back in 2015, Mitsubishi brought the axe down on one its most beloved high-performance models – the Lancer Evolution, a turbo superstar from the rough-and-tumble world of rally racing. While certainly enough to cause more than a few tears among enthusiasts, the Lancer name will continue on, and word has it Mitsu is turning it into a crossover – much like it did with the Eclipse. Salt in the wound? Maybe. But fear not, because there’s still a possible silver lining to all of this, and it’s once again inspired by the world of rally racing.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s New Patent Could Point Us in The Direction of The SQ3

We’re barely a week into seeing the all-new Audi Q3 in all its glory, and yet here we are, confused and intrigued about what looks to be a sportier derivative of the crossover that has found its way in patent form at the European Union Intellectual Property Office. The patent filing was made by Audi last month, but the design of the crossover doesn’t look like the all-new Q3. Could this be a sportier version of the Q3? Is that you, Audi SQ3?

PostHeaderIcon Audi SQ5 by Lumma Design

As far as compact SUVs go, the Audi SQ5 feels like a textbook example of how to make cars. It’s sleek, sophisticated, and somehow looks like an Apple phone – clean and just right. Making something wacky out of it requires some thinking and creativity. In this case, Lumma, a German tuning company, took it upon itself to craft a customization package trying to awaken the buried raw character hidden behind its SQ5 badge.

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen T-Roc GTI

Launched in 2017, the T-Roc is Volkswagen’s smallest crossover yet. Built on the MQB platform that underpins several Volkswagen Group vehicles, it’s related to the Audi Q2 and Seat Arona and competes against the likes of the Nissan Juke, Toyota C-HR, and Renault Captur. Ever since it arrived in showrooms, there have been rumors that Volkswagen may develop a GTI version of the mini SUV. Come 2018, and the beefed-up crossover was spotted testing on public roads.

Performance-oriented models are quite rare in this niche. Although the segment is populated by at least ten models from various companies in Europe, none of them are available with power upgrades. Nissan used to offer a Nismo version of the Juke, or even the extreme, GT-R-powered Juke-R, but these variants are no longer available. This means that the T-Roc GTI will be a unique model and will have the entire market to itself. At least for a while. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table in the speculative review below.

PostHeaderIcon First Glimpse Of The New Volkswagen T-Cross

It’s been a long time coming, and it’s finally here; well, kind of. Volkswagen has released an official design sketch of its smallest crossover, revealing its rear; and also a video that gives us a few more details. The car was showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is expected to make its debut in 2019. Is this T-Roc baby as impressive as the big brother?

PostHeaderIcon Love It or Leave It – The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer

In a surprising turn of events, Chevrolet revived the Blazer after a 13-year hiatus. Granted, it wasn’t totally unexpected as there were rumors about a revival, but the new Blazer came out of the blue, with no warning in the form of leaked photos or spy shots. And the revival also brought a lot of drama, as the new Blazer isn’t the rugged, body-on-frame SUV that everyone was hoping for.

Instead, Chevy reintroduced the iconic nameplate for a unibody crossover that slots between the Equinox and the Traverse and mixes styling cues from the Camaro and other Chevy vehicles. It’s definitely confusing for such a big revival and gearheads the world over are debating whether GM made the right move here. As we usually do when an important vehicle is launched, we’re joining the discussion with opinions from the TopSpeed staff. Read them below.

PostHeaderIcon Will There Be a Performance Chevy Blazer or an Off-Road Capable Chevy Blazer ZR2?

In the world of today where SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne or the Alfa Romeo Stelvio act more like sports cars than utility vehicles, we Americans have to keep up. We have been doing so with the likes of the insane Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk or some “spirited” versions of other large SUVs. Yet, it seems that manufacturers here lack the conviction of the Audi S division, or the Mercedes-AMG division to make high-performance versions of basically every car they sell, SUVs included. With the introduction of the new Chevrolet Blazer, I was curious about the possible prospects of a performance version, or a “soft, off-road” knockoff. Not that the Blazer name is entirely dissociated from that kind of thing. Looking back in past, we have the Blazer Xtreme Sport or the Blazer ZR2. One of these was a sporty version, while the other a rather interesting, off-road-focused machine. Can Chevrolet bring any of these back?

PostHeaderIcon Volvo’s First EV Will be Derived from the XC40; Bolder EVs Will Carry Polestar Badge

Volvo has confirmed that its first electric vehicle will be derived from the XC40 crossover and that it will arrive after Polestar introduces its second model in 2019. The battery-electric version of the XC40 will be followed by an EV version of the XC90, which is scheduled for a 2021 race. Volvo also has no plans of building electric-only models, opting instead to develop EV versions of its current models.

PostHeaderIcon Pops’ Rants: Your complaints about the new Chevrolet Blazer are invalid

This just in: Chevy revived the Blazer after 13 years! That’s pretty cool, but this new crossover makes a few people unhappy. Because it’s not a boxy hunk of metal and it doesn’t ride on a body-on-frame platform. And it’s wrong!

PostHeaderIcon Five Surprising Facts About The New Chevrolet Blazer

Of course, we have known for quite some time now that the new Blazer won’t be a rugged, off-road eager machine with two doors. The first mention of GM resurrecting the name was in 2015 when it registered the Blazer name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Soon after, some heavily camouflaged SUV-looking thing with a Chevy crest started roaming the roads. It was the Blazer.

Before you start hating GM for “ruining” the Blazer name, stop and think for a second. People simply don’t buy all that body-on-frame stuff in huge numbers anymore. Chevy revealing the new, 2019 Blazer based on top of what is basically car architecture is a pure necessity sprouted from economic feasibility. While some of us may be a bit disappointed that one of the most famous names ended up on something less than unique, the paths of profit are more than obvious. This car will sell. Regardless, moving the Blazer to a new platform shared with the rest of GM city CUVs introduced us a to a few interesting traits.

PostHeaderIcon The New Chevrolet Blazer is Here and it Looks Like an Oversized Camaro

After a 24-year absence, the Chevrolet Blazer nameplate has returned, and it’s back in the spotlight with a design that’s going to get the attention of a lot of people. The new Blazer is expected to slot between the Equinox and Traverse in Chevy’s SUV lineup. It’s the only one of the three that carries a completely different design language, something that could bode well for the Blazer as it tries to re-establish itself as one of the best crossovers in its segment.

PostHeaderIcon Comparison: Lexus UX vs Audi Q3

Japanese luxury brand Lexus dropped its brand-new UX compact crossover at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, challenging established offerings like the Audi Q3 for dominance – but which is better? To find out, we took a hard look at both and lined them up side by side to compare the numbers. Read on for the results.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 BMW X5 Unveiled

The fourth-generation BMW X5 has arrived, and it looks to bring new exterior styling, a refreshed interior, updated engines, and the latest technology features. The reveal comes mere hours after a slew of official pictures mysteriously “leaked” onto the Internet, and now, we’ve got the official specs to fill in the gaps.

Buyers can get theirs in two different trim levels, including the X5 xDr40i and the X5 xDr50i. Dimensionally, the new X5 is larger than before, with a longer wheelbase that adds an extra 1.6 inches over the outgoing model. It’s also longer overall by 1.1 inches, plus 2.6 inches wider and an inch taller, all of which should enhance the crossover’s road presence and interior room.

The new X5 looks different too, thanks to a restyled front end and those beefier proportions. Standard exterior features include Adaptive LED headlights and 19-inch alloy wheels, while laser headlights and 20-inch M-branded alloys are both optional.

Inside, the new layout seems to angle all the instrumentation towards the driver’s position, while electrically adjustable sports seats are standard. Additional M gear, such as a new sports steering wheel, new pedals, and trim bits are also offered.

As for the tech front, standard spec throws in basics like Blind Spot Detection, Frontal Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning. There’s also a 12.3-inch instrument cluster as part of the latest iDrive system.

Two turbocharged gas engines are offered for motivation, including a six-cylinder and a V-8, with 335 horses made by the former and 456 horses made by the latter. The 0-to-60 mph sprint is completed in 5.3 seconds with the ‘six and 4.6 seconds with the ‘eight. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, while AWD puts the power to the ground.

Electronically controlled dampers keep the new X5 shiny side up, while Integral Active Steering is an available option. Expect a vast array of settings and systems to customize yours as you see fit. There’s even an Off-Road Package, if that’s your kind of thing.

No official pricing was announced, but expect the 2019 BMW X5 to slot in at around $60,000.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2016 BMW X6

The X6 isn’t exactly the most attractive vehicle on the market. It’s more like a weird, jacked up SUV that wants to be a coupe at the same time. Be that as it may, it won itself over on the market due, in part, to its look. Of course, when BMW debuted the original back in 2012, it didn’t exactly have any real competition to go against, but we’ll leave that story for another time. Regardless of its odd look and strange stance, it’s still a pretty cool ride if you’re able to shell out at least $63,000 before options. All of this aside, we’ve decided the X6 doesn’t really get enough love these days, so we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. As usual, we’ve picked out our favorite and given you a gallery to choose from just in case.

PostHeaderIcon The BMW iNext Will be a Crossover Because of Course it Will

At the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, BMW previewed by upcoming all-electric X3, called the iX3, with a production-ready concept, but the bigger news was that the crossover is getting a brand-new drivetrain that will also underpin the much-discussed and highly-anticipated iNext. Set to become the brand’s flagship EV, the iNext will debut as a concept vehicle later this year, and BMW already released a teaser photo. While many expected it to be a sedan inspired by the Vision Next 100 concept, it turns out that the iNext will be a crossover. Big surprise, huh?

PostHeaderIcon Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line Aero Concept

The Volkswagen Tiguan was left to go stagnant on the market for 10 years after its launch, with Volkswagen finally giving in to introduce the second-gen model for the 2017 model year. It was, in fact, significantly more attractive, more modern than ever, and even had all the right technology. Be that as it may, once successful Tiguan isn’t doing quite as well on the U.S. market as VW would really like. So, as part of the SOWO show in Georgia, Volkswagen has debuted four new concepts, one of which is the Tiguan R-Line Areo Concept. It’s the most aggressive, stylistic, and attractive Tiguan we’ve ever seen. And, it sits excessively low to the ground – something that intrigues the low-rider in us and makes the Tiguan look like an oddly overgrown Golf with a cool wrap.
