Holding out for electrification? Say what you want about BMW's new F40 1 Series, but there's no denying that the model has always been a big hit for the German brand. Responsible for massive sales and platform for some of the most interesting hot hatches from the brand (Yes, we're talking about you, M135i and 1M), the latest generation takes a huge detour, much to the dismay for many diehard BMW fans. Sure, the new architecture and front-wheel drive layout may be a bummer for some, but the added practicality and interior space is welcome for most people, especially since majority of 1 Series buyers can't tell or won't care about the difference between which wheels the power is being sent to. It also seems that there's a rumor going around that BMW is going to keep the F40 1 Series the way it is until the end of its production. How long? Just five years.

He first released a clip where he reshapes the rear end of the vehicle and announced he will do another video with the front end if the first one reaches 5,000 likes. To the surprise of no one, the video got nearly 11,000 likes.

2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA first drive review: Bite size luxury “The CLA is a real Mercedes-Benz, for better and for worse.” Refined ride Well-designed interior Useful voice assistant AMG power Lack of character Poor value As the first of Mercedes’ line of compact cars to reach the United States, the first-generation CLA lowered the bar of entry to this vaunted luxury brand. In terms of tech, the redesigned 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a major upgrade over the previous generation. Yet it’s still not as compelling as before. That’s because Mercedes now has another compact four-door, the A-Class. Both cars are built on the same platform, and feature the same tech. The differences mainly come down to styling – and price. Mercedes saw the addition of the A-Class as an opportunity to bump up the price of the CLA. The base CLA 250 model starts at $37,645.
