Inside the Audi Design Studio

Inside the Audi Design Studio

The Design Center houses some of the essential secrets of any automaker. It’s rare that outsiders are invited inside to see the inner-workings, let alone see presentations from the designers themselves. Audi invited us to Ingolstadt to tour its new design center, and explain what exactly is involved with bringing the new A7 from idea to production, and how technology has dramatically improved that process.

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Razer Phone Unboxing: Devil’s in the Details

Inside the box sent to me for a SlashGear review is the Razer Phone - but more than that, it's a presentation of a phone worthy of the best on the market. It's almost as if Razer is trying to tell the end user that they've bought into a device that's more than just the Android phone they find at the top of this box. Inside is the work of a team of engineers that are obviously proud of the work they've done.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

A year ago, I reviewed Pokemon Sun and Moon and found that the changes they brought to the long-running (and in many ways stale) Pokemon series were great. After all, Pokemon is not usually a series that makes drastic changes from game to game. Though Pokemon Sun and Moon are completely different than Pokemon Red and Blue, that isn’t the result of some sweeping reinvention, but rather incremental changes that have been implemented over the course of the series. With Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Freak rethought its approach and took more risks, and the results were very successful.

The LA Auto Show 2017 was dominated by new SUVs

Every car show gravitates toward a theme, and at the LA Auto Show 2017 this week it was clear: SUVs were the vehicle to debut. From spritely urban crossovers, through midsize and full-size trucks, through to super-luxe transportation for the 1-percent, there's no sign that America's love-affair with Sports Utility Vehicles is anywhere close to ending. However, that's not to say it was all the LA show was good for. Read on for the highlights from this week...

2019 BMW i8 Roadster First Look: Topless Hybrid

2019 BMW i8 Roadster First Look: Topless Hybrid

Given the choice between a coupe and a convertible, I’m always inclined to go with the latter, and now those who think similarly but who want a BMW i8 have an option. Just announced at the LA Auto Show 2017, the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster takes a sharp knife to the roof, though the differences between it and the also updated 2019 i8 Coupe are more than just the wind in your hair. Both have been in line for a number of improvements, including a welcome jolt of extra power.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is pitch-perfect: First Look

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is pitch-perfect: First Look

Jeep could've really screwed it up. The 2018 Wrangler could've been a pastiche of its iconic predecessors: all style for the mall parking lot, but none of the off-road ability some owners still demand. Happily, our first real-life glimpse of the 2018 Wrangler suggests Jeep has done just fine.

If VW’s I.D. CROZZ is the electric future, we can’t wait

We're on the cusp of an electrification revolution, and if the Volkswagen I.D. trio are anything to go by, we think it's time to bring it on. Joined at the LA Auto Show 2017 today by the new I.D. CROZZ, the line-up of EVs may look different from the outside, but under their sheet metal they share a common architecture. However, Volkswagen's modular electric platform isn't the only theme.

2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible First Look: Chevy melts some faces

Very orange, and very angry. That's the unavoidable first impression when faced with the 2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible, Chevrolet's 755 horsepower route to getting lots, and lots, and lots of wind in your hair. Open-top sibling to the Corvette ZR1 coupe, the drop-top refuses to succumb to the old adage that cutting the roof off also means compromising on performance.

There's no denying that the US is crossover-crazy, and Infiniti wants a piece of the luxury action with this, the 2019 Infiniti QX50. Making its official debut at the LA Auto Show 2017 today, the all-new SUV won't be mistaken for any other brand from the outside.
