Manhart MHX6 700WB is a BMW X6 M Competition on a carbon-rich diet

Manhart MHX6 700WB is a BMW X6 M Competition on a carbon-rich diet

Quickly, can you name a car that’s quirkier than the BMW X6 M Competition and its 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 engine? The answer is this, the Manhart MHX6 700WB. The WB is for wide-body, while the 700 connotes the number of horses lurking under the hood. We’ve all seen tuned versions of the BMW X6 like the Hamman X6 M with four rear spoilers and oversized 23-inch graphite wheels, but nothing will prepare you for the Manhart MHX6 700WB, especially if you like carbon fiber.

2022 Mazda MX-30 EV gets US range, pricing and a gloomy outlook

Mazda has confirmed pricing and range for its 2022 MX-30 EV, and there's every sign that the shapely electric crossover could be a tough sell given the amount of driving it's capable of. The automaker confirmed back in April that the MX-30 BEV would be coming to the US, though we'll have to wait longer for Mazda's unusual take on the range extender system.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 Review

I have never straddled a charging baby rhinoceros, but the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 is what I'd expect it to feel like. All snorting angst and playful gurgle: your own contribution to the soundtrack a barely-stifled giggle. The entryway to AMG's performance range is getting fairly crowded these days, but the GLB 250's sportier sibling manages to stand out all the same.

2022 BMW iX3 debuts in China with mild styling updates

2022 BMW iX3 debuts in China with mild styling updates

Only two years after debuting in China, the 2022 BMW iX3 has appeared with numerous styling updates. We still can’t get over why BMW insists on not selling the X3-based iX3 all-electric crossover in the United States. It may have something to do with its single electric motor, the lack of an all-wheel drivetrain, or lackluster range. Still, it would be great to have a low-cost electric Beemer crossover without the quirky design cues associated with modern EVs.
