    Report: BMW says SUVs killed the sports car market
    1416841200

    In many ways, we're living in a golden age of automotive performance. After all, it's possible to show up at a Dodge dealer, hand over about $64,000 and storm away with a 707-horsepower Challenger Hellcat in Canada.

    Report: BMW 2 Series to wear 230i, M240i nameplates
    1416783540

    BMW might not be done tweaking its naming scheme quite yet. Of course, at this point, the jumble of numbers on the back of the Bavarian models has no connection to what's under the hood. So there's not much reason to stop changing the monikers now. As Autoblog reported a few months ago, BMW is slotting upgraded, turbocharged four- and six-cylinder ...

    Los Angeles: 2016 BMW X5 M gets big and bold at LA Auto Show
    1416424500

    Awesome as it is, the BMW X5 M has never really been an attractive machine. Big and bulgy are the themes here, and that's only more pronounced with the X5's most recent refresh.
