Report: Volvo CEO shares details about new CMA platform for compact cars

Volvo’s new partnership with China’s Geely is resulting in the brand’s next generation of cars. That said, Volvo’s CEO, Hakan Samuelsson, spoke to Top Gear recently about their new Compact Modular Architecture, or CMA.

What does this mean? We should expect a new S40, V40, and XC40 from this new platform. It’ll be loosely based off of their new Scalable Product Architecture, which is what underpins the new XC90 and soon to be S80.

The first model to be launched should be the new XC40 with the S40 and V40 following afterwards.

Not too long ago, I had the chance to test drive the latest and greatest Jaguar XJ to date.

Jaguar’s been making the XJ since the planet Earth was born and has endured many generations. And yet, despite a troubled history, the XJ has finally evolved after Jaguar realized it wasn’t 1951 any more.

Bearing the revival of a famed nameplate for American soil, this new “XJ6″ comes with Jaguar-Land Rover’s latest AJV6 with 3.0L of displacement and a supercharger. That means this XJ is the first six-cylinder powered XJ sedan since 1995, which was later retired and replaced by their first V8.

Lexus teased the arrival of a new concept car due at Geneva and now, it appears the whole concept was leaked, thanks to a discovery by CarScoops.

Instead of being a possible pitch for a replacement for the CT200h, the LF-SA Concept looks to be more of an idea for a new city car.

Not much else is known, but should the LF-SA reach production, it would sit below the CT200h as the new entry-level Lexus.

Report: Toyota Tacoma’s chief engineer downplays diesel version

With General Motors leading the revival of the midsize pickup truck segment, pressure against other competitors of this segment has grown significantly.

Perpetuating the pressure against these competitors, such as the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier, is the fact that GM is offering a new 2.8L Duramax turbodiesel four. And a diesel engine is a highly coveted item in the world of the pickup.

But if you were hoping for a diesel with the Tacoma to match GM’s move, unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen.

Report: Details on next BMW 3-Series and M3 surface

Although the BMW M3 was recently just replaced, that doesn’t mean BMW isn’t stopping from developing the next-generation model, due sometime in 2018.

According to a new report from Automobile, the next BMW M3 should sport at least 500hp, 69hp more than the current model, thanks to the help of electric turbocharger technology and a new water injection system, like the one found on the 2015 M4 Coupe MotoGP safety car.

The next M3 should also ahve a lower center of gravity, a wider track, and a longer wheelbase. Meaning, yup. That indicates the M3 should grow in size. The suspension should be adjustable, as well as the anti-roll bars.

As for the rest of the 3-Series lineup, the new model should also follow a similar levels of change, as with the M3 just described. But further more, BMW’s also looking to add more plug-in hybrid options.

Report: More details on future Lotus plans and models surface

Lotus has come under fire over the past several years for a lack of direction and focus, but if Top Gear’s recent sit down with new CEO Jean Marc-Gales is an indication of things to come, there’s no need for skepticism.
