This BMW concept starts to stretch credulity with its changing colors and other silliness. But another part of the Connected Drive platform is very real and very enticing. Brian Cooley shows us another reason why BMW tops surveys when consumers are asked about connected cars.
The SLK has always been a lesser SL--way lesser. But, as Brian Cooley shows us, it might actually be coming up to snuff alongside its very pricey bigger sibling. Hmm, you may be able to drive it without that bag over your head (think how much more you'll be able to enjoy the open top.)
Kia used to be a cheaper Hyundai. Not cool. But starting with the Soul they began to fully recast their brand, and Optima is their most important step yet in that direction. Brian Cooley takes you for a drive to check the tech.
As the concept of "premium compact" car starts to take hold in the U.S., Audi's timing is right for this concept of the next little A3. Brian Cooley sees it becoming what the A4 used to be, but with a lot more tech. Not a bad package.
The Golf cabriolet was just one of those semi-iconic cars. The along came the New Beetle and later the EOS and VW figured there was no place for the Golf Cab. Brian Cooley wonders what they were thinking as he takes you for a walk around the best looking, most appealing open VW of them all.
Turns out that Porsche made its first hybrid in 1900. This year, it adds its second modern hybrid with the Panamera S Hybrid. Brian Cooley finds it lifts the power train from the Cayenne Hybrid and should deliver miles per gallon in the 30s, which is a substantial improvement.
The Geneva auto show is known for having a lot of custom cars and strange avant garde concepts. The Rinspeed BamBoo did not disappoint in this regard. Brian Cooley isn't even quite sure where to start with this one.
Lamborghini has rolled out the successor to the top-of-the-stable Murcielago and it's a fascinating bit of fast technology: The LP 700-4 Aventador. Brian Cooley takes you inside--way inside--the newest, baddest Lambo.
Here's Ferrari's AWD four-passenger hatchback of sorts. The FF changes a lot of rules in Modena (but then again Ferrari is doing a lot of that these days with things like amusement parks in Abu Dhabi). Brian Cooley shows you around the startling new body and the impressive innards that move the FF.
More than just a two-door, long roof version of the C Class sedan, the new Coupe is positioned well upscale and echoes the former CLK. Brian Cooley finds it's a looker, and will usher in improved cabin tech for the lower end of the M-B line.
