  • 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom leaked - Image via CarNewsChina

    This is likely our best look yet at the new Rolls-Royce Phantom which is scheduled for a reveal on July 27. The images are supposedly screen shots depicting an online brochure for the eighth-generation Phantom, in Extended Wheelbase form. They were first posted to the website CarNewsChina and show a distinctly evolutionary design for the new Phantom, which was to be expected given the similarity of the styling of prototype versions compared to the current Phantom. While the exterior may be familiar, things are all-new under the skin. Underpinning the vehicle is a new aluminum spaceframe...

  • 2018 Volkswagen Polo GTI

    A new generation of the Volkswagen Polo, the nameplate’s sixth iteration, was revealed on Friday. The new model features an evolutionary look, though major changes have taken place under the skin. Underpinning the vehicle is the smallest version of the MQB platform. The platform is flexible enough to spawn everything from this subcompact Polo right up to the mid-size, three-row Atlas SUV. As was expected, the new Polo has grown in size: at 159 inches in length, it’s the biggest Polo yet. Compared to the outgoing model, the new one has a 3.7-inch longer wheelbase (100 inches) and...

  • 2017 BMW 1-Series Hatchback

    BMW is out testing prototypes for its next-generation 1-Series Hatchback, but before the new car arrives the current model on sale overseas since 2011 will be given one last update. Being so late in the life cycle, the changes implemented are relatively minor. (It’s actually the car’s second update; the first was in 2015.) For the exterior, there are black accents in the headlight surrounds, a blackened grille and darkened taillights to be had with new “Shadow” edition models. There are also new colors and wheel patterns to choose from for the regular 1-Series...
