2018 Jeep Cherokee spied: Goodbye quirky headlights

The facelifted Jeep Cherokee has been spied during testing, revealing a new, cleaner nose to replace the polarising current split-headlight design. Although much of the car is covered, it’s clear the updated car will have a face far more similar to that of the Grand Cherokee and Compass. That means no more two-tier lighting, and no more awkward beaky grille...

2018 BMW X2 spied with almost no disguise

The upcoming BMW X2 has been spied again this week, with almost no effort made to hide its key styling details. Finished in a metallic yellow similar to the shade used on the M3 and M4, the company's new coupe-like crossover certainly stands out, though the overall design is fairly true to form considering it looks almost exactly like the Concept X2...

2018 Hyundai Kona review

The Hyundai Kona small crossover is the first truly adventurous design from the brand since the Veloster. Under the body lies a pretty competent car that'll take sales away from the Mazda CX-3 and co. Deservedly so.

Surfing safari in the 2017 Nissan Patrol Ti

When I conjure up images of Nissan Patrols, I imagine them alongside Toyota LandCruisers of old, expanding the boundaries of our great island nation every which way. As I was growing up, they were almost mentioned in the same sentence and were the only options for serious off-roaders. The Patrol's appearance was boxy, functional and unashamedly agricultural...

The next-generation BMW X4 M has been spied again, though this time the vehicle was spotted on the streets of Germany rather than in the US.
