Audi introduces the Q3 – an urbane friendly SUV

It used to be so simple – 4×4’s were big, clumsy goliaths, driven mostly by mums on the school run, with few redeeming qualities apart from their use as rescue vehicles during Britain’s recent mini Ice Age.

New Lexus LF-Gh hybrid concept points the way towards a new GS

The new Lexus LF-Gh hybrid concept will make its world debut on April 19th at the 2011 New York International Auto Show.

Geneva Watch: Koenigsegg Agera R breaks cover

Supercars are awesome aren’t they? Well they’re supposed to be and that’s sometimes their biggest problem – the headline figures can become so incomprehensible that eventually they’re meaningless to the average person. Take the Bugatti Veyron for example.

BMW’s New M5 is coming…

BMW’s new F10 5-Series has been out for just over a year, and whilst its a worthy and very capable executive saloon, the model we’ve all been waiting for is the M5 – traditionally the fastest car in BMW’s line-up.

Geneva Watch: Alfa’s 4C Concept makes a stunning entrance

Alfa Romeo revealed its much-rumoured 4C sports car concept at Geneva today, generating one of the biggest scrums of the day as photographers fought to capture those all important first images.
