Cadillac has upped its coupe game with the new ATS-4. Our tester, the 2.0 liter turbo variant, makes 14 percent more torque than last year's model and 10 percent more than the V6 version. True to its lineage, this Caddy delivers a smooth ride and loves an open road.
Compact SUVs seem to be all the rage and many manufacturers are getting in on the act by taking a small hatch, jacking it up
and giving it all wheel drive. Mazda's tilt at cracking the recipe comes in the form of the CX-3, a high-riding compact SUV based on the
featherweight Mazda 2 hatchback. Gizmag spent a week with the CX-3 to find out what
all the fuss is about.
The British are a singularly odd bunch when it comes to things automotive. When they fail to amaze, they do an epic job of it, but when they do hit the mark, they do so with such perfection that it’s awe inspiring. The 2016 Jaguar F-Type R Convertible falls squarely into the latter camp and for us, this particular car is so utterly perfect that all other vehicles are henceforth relegated to the sad "not an F-Type" bin.
Electric cars have come a long way and if you want proof, look no further than the Tesla Model S. With its practical range, exceptional performance and intuitive application of in-car technology, the Model S has shoehorned the humble family sedan into the 21st century. The high performance Model S P85D takes the already-impressive P85 and adds another motor, turning it into an all-wheel drive, all-electric, supercar baiting rocketship. We spent a week behind the wheel to see how the premier e-motoring experience translates into the daily drive.
While test driving two of the new BMW 1 and 6 Series models yesterday,
we were struck by a sense of satisfaction. There was a understatement
that doesn't exist with, for example, similar Mercedes cars. Respectively, one of the two Bimmers is practical whereas the other is luxurious – but they both ooze quality.
Late last year, Mini announced that there was to be a new John Cooper Works (JCW) model of its iconic car. That meant taking the Mini's typical bubblegum style, churning it through the JCW performance-machine and creating something altogether less wholesome. Gizmag took it for a spin.
