BMW’s next M5 is almost ready for its auto show debut. The sledgehammer of a sedan is undergoing a final round of testing on the Nürburgring and the latest prototypes are wearing the least amount of camouflage gear we’ve seen yet.

Jeep’s Compass may not be the first choice for a serious off-road vehicle, but it can certainly hold its own over undulating terrain, especially in Trailhawk form. It does have its limits, though you’ll be quite surprised at what it’s capable of.

Tesla is no longer the only electric car manufacturer in California. Karma, born out of the bankrupt remains of the original Fisker Automotive, has a plant in the state and is churning out an extended-range electric sedan dubbed the Revero.
