Check Out these Used Sports Cars

If you’re looking for a car that offers the fun you want to enjoy and the features that get you excited, you want to take a look at used sports cars. The sports car you admire is waiting for you to choose it, but when you don’t want to pay the price for a new model, you need to consider the used models that can be right for you to drive. If your budget will allow for a $30,000 price tag, you can have a lot of power and fun on the road in one of these cars. (more…)

Vehicle Depreciation Works Two Ways

When you buy a new vehicle, if your intention is to be able to sell it and get the most out of it after three years, you’re going to want to make sure you avoid the models on this list. Most vehicles will depreciate at a rate of about 35 percent after three years, but the models on this list have deprecated much more than that which means you can’t expect to have as much in return when you’re ready to trade in the model you’re driving.

Vehicle Depreciation Rates Matter

When shopping for a vehicle, take several factors into consideration. If you know you’ll only have it a few years, the vehicle depreciation rate matters. When you lease, the payments you make are applied to the anticipated depreciation of the vehicle, meaning a higher depreciation rate will cause you to have higher payments. The same is true if you’re going to trade in the vehicle after only three years of driving. Here are the vehicles that have the highest depreciation rate for the first three years which should be a factor for you to consider when you’re ready to drive. (more…)

A Serious New Hyundai Sub-Brand

We’ve heard that the i30N, part of the new N sub-brand being offered from Hyundai will be the first model offered with new badging and performance items, but it won’t be offered in the US. What we will have is a performance version of the Veloster after we see the new model of this car as it shows up at the shows this year, which started with the Consumer Electronics Show that has already begun. If this was where the N brand would stop, then this would be a sad and extremely short tale. (more…)

There’s More than Ever in the BMW 4 Series

Never let it be said that BMW doesn’t offer you the choices you want when it’s time to have a drive on the road in a luxury car. As the leader in choices in every model, the BMW team brings the 2018 4 Series to the market with three different models to choose from. You can have the classic coupe version, a retractable hardtop convertible that’s also been part of the market in the past, but you can now also have a four-door liftback model called the Gran Coupe and have the drive you’re looking for.

Another Car We Want to Drive

Whether we need to relax the regulations that are in place for the automotive industry or automakers need to make sure every car they make can be offered in the US, something needs to be done. There are too many great cars on the market today that never get to be sold or driven in the US for the reasons of power, pollution and adherence to the safety standards that our regulatory bodies seem to think are necessary. We miss out on so many great cars it almost seems unfair for the country that has so much space and room to drive to not have the absolute best driving cars in the world. (more…)

2017 BMW i8: Big Performance and a Small Engine

The i8 has become a more familiar model than it was in the past. This car is one of the most impressive designs to ever come to the market and it offers us a look at what BMW has in mind for the future. The i8 is the halo car that doesn’t use a halo style engine. Most of the top models from automakers use massive engines to get the grunt and the growl just right in the car, but this one uses a tiny engine that’s almost too small for the smallest compact cars on the market.

The BMW Pickup Truck

Yes, I said there was a BMW pickup truck that was built. As far as we know there was only ever one built, but this little truck was something to behold and a bit of a Frankenstein’s Monster of sorts. BMW has never been a company that embraced the idea of hauling and carrying as a goal for their vehicles, but they apparently decided they needed one such vehicle at just the right time and now this single BMW pickup truck is a bit of legend in the BMW world. What was this truck and how come it never came to be a production model? Let’s find out for ourselves. (more…)
What did BMW bring to Paris?

What did BMW bring to Paris?

BMW has been working on the X2, we know this because spy shots have been shared on many different automotive websites, but they chose to bring a concept model of the new X2 to the Paris Motor Show to give us a look at what will be their next luxury compact crossover model. This SUV came in bathed in a red-orange paint with gray cladding on the sides to give it a dramatic look and the appearance of an SUV up front and a sports coupe in the back to make the X2 ad combination vehicle that you want to pay close attention to.

2017 BMW X3: Sport and Activity

BMW is determined to redefine the classifications we’re used to for vehicles. Whatever happened to the days when you had sports cars, trucks, vans, cars and SUVs? Now ever category appears to have numerous sub-categories causing some confusion and avoiding any form of direct competition among the vehicles offered. The BMW X3 is a great example of what the brand is attempting to do to the market. This isn’t an SUV or even a CUV, it’s an SAV which stands for Sport Activity Vehicle and is probably the right name for what the X3 happens to be. (more…)
