As you might be aware, 2021 marks the year CarAdvice and Drive become one – bringing together both sites' top-shelf automotive content under the one banner.

For you, dear reader, not much will change. We're still the same team, with the same familiar faces and high standards for our new-car content and love of all things automotive.

The only difference is you'll eventually be able to meet all your new-car needs in one place, Drive.

Until then, however, we want to make sure that while you're glued to CarAdvice, you don't miss out on the original content we're producing on Drive.

To keep you informed, we'll be rounding up our five favourite Drive stories of the week each week. Behold, the 'Drive Five'...


1. Formula 1 confirms release date for 'Drive to Survive'

For those who are yet to watch it, Netflix's documentary series Formula 1: Drive to Survive is a fascinating look inside the lives of some of the world's most elite racing drivers.

The first season debuted in 2019 and drew acclaim for its unflinching portrayal of the danger and the thrill of Formula One, as well as the rigorous training schedules of drivers like Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz Jr.

Thankfully, fans will have even more episodes to binge watch with the announcement of a third season, coming soon. Click here for all the details.


2. Justin Bieber's 'floating' Rolls-Royce is un-bieb-lievable

We've covered Justin Bieber's visually striking custom Rolls-Royce before, but now we finally have the backstory as to how it came to be.

A new video from famed LA modification house West Coast Customs details the three-year process to bring the pop star's dream to life.

To find out how a Rolls-Royce Wraith was converted into a "floating" vision inspired by the all-electric Rolls-Royce 103EX concept car, click here.


3. Hyundai Kona VS BMW X1 Spec Comparison

While it might seem strange to compare a Hyundai to a BMW, price changes have meant the Kona and X1 small SUVs now cost within a few thousand dollars of each other.

As such, it pays to sift through the various specifications and standard equipment on the recently-facelifted Hyundai Kona N Line Premium and the BMW X1 sDrive18i xLine.

4. Cherokee Nation requests Jeep drop namesake from line-up

Jeep has been using the Cherokee nameplate for around half a century, but it seems the tribe that inspired the title has decided it's finally time to put an end to the cultural appropriation.

A spokesperson for the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma has formally requested the car maker drop the name from its line-up.

5. Police stop motorcyclist with fake McLovin licence from the movie SuperBad

In this week's episode of bad behaviour on the roads, two teenagers were caught in the US riding an unregistered dirt bike with a fake driver's licence based on the comical character McLovin' from the movie Superbad.

But it didn't stop there – there were more reports of poor decision-making from around the world this week, including a Queensland woman who allegedly necked a bottle of wine behind the wheel.
