  • Teaser for Volkswagen T-Roc R concept debuting at 2019 Geneva auto show

    Volkswagen will use next month's 2019 Geneva International Motor Show to preview a new performance crossover SUV currently in the works. The vehicle is the T-Roc R we've spied testing at the Nürburgring, and its preview will come in the form of a thinly veiled concept, shown here in a teaser sketched released by VW on Thursday. Before you get too excited, note that the regular T-Roc isn't sold in the United States so neither will the R version. That's a shame because there might be a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-5 under the hood. The same engine is found in the Audi RS 3 and TT RS...

  • 2020 Toytota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, 2019 Chicago Auto Show

    Back when it was a new thing and the Backstreet Boys were still (mostly) minors, the Toyota RAV4 was a plucky off-roader with potential from an automaker that had a good pedigree for making small 'utes with spunk. Then success, popularity, and age took its toll on the RAV4 (and the Backstreet Boys) and what arrived later wasn't any more capable off-road than, say, a Camry. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road that showed up Thursday in Chicago may be the cute 'ute's return to tough trails. It's the first TRD version of the RAV4 available for sale to us normal folks—a TRD RAV4 was rally...

  • Prototype for BMW iNext electric SUV due in 2021

    Is the world ready for another SUV? BMW thinks so, and will add to its lineup of high-riding vehicles with the much-hyped iNext electric crossover SUV in 2021.

A likely bet is i5. Testing is currently underway in northern Sweden, up close to the Arctic Circle. The focus for the engineers at this stage...
