When riding in a car for more than five minutes, the favorite question of kids across the land is, "Are we there yet?" No, Connor, we're not even close, and stop pestering your sister. Connor probably wouldn't ask such questions or fight with his sister in BMW's all-electric i7 for 2023, because there's basically a... Read more...
Do you ever wish that you could change the color of your vehicle? How about watching a movie in 8K in the backseat of your car? BMW recently introduced its iX Flow featuring E Ink concept and Theater Screen at CES 2022 to fulfill both of these dreams.  BMW iX Flow relies upon "E Ink." The E Ink has millions of... Read more...
A new challenger to the Tesla Model 3 is entering the ring, and it's coming from a familiar name in the compact luxury sedan market. BMW just revealed U.S. pricing and specifications for the electrified version of its 4-Series. Of course, given that it's a BMW, the vehicle won't come cheap, and its starting price is...

Few things are nicer on cold winter mornings than sliding into a car equipped with heated seats. Heated seats also make leather seating more attractive to those who live in particularly cold areas. In fact, we'd wager that heated seats (and steering wheels) are a particularly important item on the list of must-haves... Read more...
Earlier the week, BMW officially unveiled the latest version of its 3-Series 4-Series Coupe, and it was quite the head scratcher with regards to its looks. Although the BMW Concept 4 had already prepared us for the massive, vertically-oriented grille, seeing it on the production car made it seem even more offensive to... Read more...
BMW has unveiled the all-new 4 Series Coupe and promises that it will be on showrooms by October. The vehicle is a sporty two-door car aimed at the premium midsize segment that promises BMW's iconic "dynamic driving pleasure." One of the most polarizing features about the all-new 4 Series is its front grille. It's... Read more...
Earlier today, we told you about NVIDIA's new Ampere GPU architecture, which forms the basis of the A100 GPU and the DGX A100 AI compute system. However, Ampere is also scaling down to be used in NVIDIA's DRIVE AGX platform for automakers.  NVIDIA's next-generation DRIVE AGX range is incredibly scalable through the... Read more...
BMW will be unveiling its third-generation X6, which it says is the car that established the Sports Activity Coupe segment. The unveiling of the new X6 will come at the Frankfurt Motor Show and at that event will be a version of the BMW X6 slathered in Vantablack VBx2 nanostructure paint. The vehicle is a... Read more...
Roughly 18 months ago, we first brought you news that BMW would start charging an $80/month yearly subscription fee for CarPlay access starting with 2019 model year vehicles. Needless to say, the backlash from tech enthusiasts and BMW owners was swift, as CarPlay and Android Auto access are usually provided as... Read more...
When we think of electric vehicles, BMW isn't exactly the first company to come to mine; that distinction is usually reserved for Tesla. However, the German automaker is looking to move beyond low-volume exercises like the i3 and the i8 as it further integrates mainstream electric vehicles into its lineup. That brings... Read more...
There are some things that you can take for granted from BMW. One of them is that its cars are luxurious; even the less expensive 2- and 3-Series cars are posh compared to the standard fare from most automakers. BMW also makes some very fast cars like the 2020 M340i that it rolled out last November. One of the most... Read more...
After the years of teasing, spy shots, and camouflaged prototypes blasting through Europe, did Toyota actually slip up just weeks ahead of the 2020 Supra's official debut? That appears to be the case, thanks to a goof on Toyota Germany's website. The website allows you to get on the waitlist for the 2020 Supra, and... Read more...
At this point, we just wish that Toyota would go ahead and reveal the new Supra (MKV) instead of waiting for the official Detroit Auto Show announcement. The nameplate has been on hiatus in the United States since the late 1990s and Toyota has been teasing its return (and dragging us along for the ride) for the past... Read more...
The move to electric vehicles seems inevitable, but we are slowly getting there as early adopters purchase vehicles like the Tesla Model 3, Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Bolt. However, there are three primary negatives that make the buying public skeptical of EVs at the moment: cost, range anxiety, and the widespread... Read more...
BMW has announced details on its new for 2020 M340i and M340i xDrive sedans. These cars are identical save for the xDrive being an all-wheel-drive, and the standard M340i being rear-wheel drive only. BMW says that the M340i xDrive will make its official world debut at the LA International Auto Show on November 30... Read more...
BMW seems acutely aware of the criticism some have had for the more recent 3 Series iterations, so it's gone and retooled the sedan, giving it a bigger design, making it more tech savvy, and a punchier look. Or as BMW puts it, the 2019 model 3 Series "takes the signature characteristics of a BMW and turns the volume up several notches." The Read more...
When you think about autonomous vehicles, your mind might immediately drift to cars and vans from companies like Waymo, which have racked up eight million cumulative miles. What your mind doesn’t go to is an autonomous motorcycle, yet that is exactly what BMW Motorrad engineers have whipped up. This autonomous... Read more...
BMW has announced that it is putting a new proprietary AI assistant into its cars that it calls the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. This AI is proprietary and aims to enhance the BMW driving experience. The AI is always on and will respond to the voice prompt "Hey BMW" and can perform a range of functions for the... Read more...
Last week, we gave you a first look at the 2019 BMW Z4 M40i Roadster courtesy of renders that leaked early to the internet. The images gave us good looks as the vehicle from nearly every angle (save for the front) and even a glimpse inside the cabin. Today, however, we're getting The Full Monte, as the car was...

Around this time last year, BMW outed its Concept Z4 Roadster, which as it turns out was a thinly-veiled look at the all-new 2019 Z4. Images of the non-camouflaged 2019 Z4 leaked over the weekend, and now we're getting a glimpse at the first official renders that have made their way to the internet ahead of the... Read more...
BMW's 8-Series coupe died nearly two decades ago and in the interim was replaced -- in spirit -- by the 6-Series. The 6-Series never had quite the appeal of the 90's wunderkind, but it is now back in full force in the BMW lineup. BMW first teased the design direction of the new luxury coupe back in mid-2017 with... Read more...
Believe it or not, but the BMW X5 is approaching its 20th birthday. The first-generation model went into production in 1999 as a 2000 model year vehicle. Today, BMW has taken the wraps off the fourth-generation X5, and it's appealing as ever for those looking for a premium, mid-size crossover vehicle. As seems to be... Read more...
