  • 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA Class, 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show

    The 2013 Frankfurt auto show is in full swing, and while the halls are hot, the new cars are hotter, and Mercedes-Benz's latest addition to the production fold is the GLA Class. Usually, it's tough to get very excited about crossovers--they are, after all, rather utilitarian by nature, however well-sculpted or equipped. In the case of the GLA Class, however, we finally get something of a taste of the A Class hatchback. That's a strain of Forbidden Fruit we've long hungered for here in the U.S. Of course, the GLA CLass has taken most of the A Class formula and re-configured it into a package...

  • Volvo Concept Coupe, 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show
    Volvo Concept Coupe: Live From Frankfurt

    There hasn't been a lot of reason to get excited about Volvo's products lately. Sure, they're generally attractive, sometimes innovatively efficient, and even occasionally fun to drive.

Whether the new two-door take on the S-Class theme is to your liking or not, it's...

  • BMW Concept X5 eDrive, 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show

    Crossovers and sport utilities are now an established part of luxury-car lineups--even Jaguar showed a crossover concept--and hybrids are all the range these days. So why not blend the two? Range Rover now has two hybrids, Lexus showed a concept for its second hybrid utility vehicle, and BMW has now joined the parade as well. At the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, we shot these photos of the BMW Concept X5 eDrive, which adds a plug-in hybrid powertrain to the third generation X5 sport-utility vehicle built in South Carolina. BMW released details of the Concept X5 eDrive three weeks ago, and now the...

  • 2015 BMW i8
    2015 BMW i8 Revealed, Priced From $135,925

    Power output of 362 horsepower and torque of 420 pound-feet is reasonable for a 3,300-pound sports coupe with a low drag coefficient of 0.26, but it's nowhere near the top of the power charts. But suppose you combine those specs with advanced carbon fiber construction, the ability to run...

  • Dr. Wolfgang Porsche with Porsche 918 Spyder  -  Frankfurt Auto Show preview event

    On the eve of the Frankfurt Auto Show, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, the grandson of company founder Ferdinand Porsche sat briefly to pose in what’s perhaps one of the proudest achievements for the company yet—and certainly the most advanced Porsche street cars ever produced: the Porsche 918 Spyder. Porsche didn't say anything more about the car as he sat in the driver's seat; although his grins acted as a sort of endorsement for this technology flagship, which Volkswagen AG Chairman Dr. Martin Winterkorn has just described as “a beacon blazing the trail for future Porsches.”...

  • Hankook i-Flex airless tire concept

    Hankook has revealed a new airless tire design called i-Flex which makes its debut this week in concept form at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show. The i-Flex tire constitutes both the tire and wheel and is similar to previous concepts from Bridgestone as well as America’s own Polaris. Apart from being puncture proof, the i-Flex tire has many other benefits. It is considerably lighter than conventional tire and wheel combinations and it can also provide a level of shock absorbency through the unique mesh structure. According to Hankook, these two attributes alone contribute to reduced fuel...
