The facelifted Mercedes-AMG GT with the new ‘upside down’ grille.
The new BMW 5 Series, which is likely to be revealed towards the end of next year, will compete against Mercedes-Benz’s new E-Class, as well as the Jaguar XF, Cadillac CTS, Lexus GS and Audi A6. The new 5 series will borrow its styling from the new 7 series, X5 and facelifted 3 series.
Traditionally, the new 5 Series is set to feature a range of four and six-cylinder engines of 2.0 and 3.0-litre capacities. A successor to today’s tri-turbo 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel will produce close to 400bhp. An plug-in hybrid, with the same set-up as the 3 series, will be included as well. It is also rumoured that the next 5 Series will benefit from BMW’s new 1.5-litre petrol and diesel turbocharged three-cylinder engines in an effort to help to drop emissions.
The Bentley Flying Spur is the ‘cheapest’ sedan of Bentley. This Flying Spur is based on the Continental GT, which had a facelift last year. The Flying Spur cannot stay behind and a facelift will be in the pipeline for this model as well.
The facelifted Flying Spur will feature new LED head and taillights, new bumpers and grilles. This will get the Flying Spur more in line with the facelifted Continental GT and new Bentayga SUV.
I have wanted to make this rendering for a very long time. The new Crossover SUV of Mazda that will be called the Mazda CX-9.

A productionised version of the Lexus LF-FC concept car into the next generation Lexus LS
Subaru has already made a lot of generations of their success model the Impreza. From a weird frog eyed sedan to a decent XV crossover like model. Where the current model is criticized for it’s lackluster and cheap looking exterior, the concept of the new model looks promising. Hopefully the trend of cool looking concepts and following with a very toned down production model will stop with this model, because this could be a very good looking hatchback.
The new Impreza will be built on a new platform and will have new engines and probably a hybrid model as well
The new BMW M2 Coupe was unveiled last week, but a convertible could also be an addition to the M-family of BMW. The base of the M2 Convertible will be the same as the BMW M2 Coupe, but with added weight due to structural strengthening materials.
The soft top M2 will have the same six cylinder twinscoll turbo engine with 370hp and 465Nm. The topspeed and the 0-60 times will be a bit slower than the Coupe.
Audi has it’s hands full with all-new SUVs. The Audi Q7 has been revealed in the first half of 2015, and the new Q1 and next-generation Q5 are in the pipeline as well. The Mercedes GLC and BMW X3 challenger is expected to arrive next year with the possibility of a plug-in hybrid e-tron model.
As spyshots already show, the design will be evolutionary with design cues of the new Audi A4 and Q7. The Q5 will be based on the same MLB architecture than underpins everything from the latest A4 to the Q7. That means weight reduction of around a 100kg. New tech will also appear, with examples like the Matrix LED lighting and Virtual Cockpit making its way from the latest models in the range.
The hatchback version of the Fiat AEgea/Egea, will be sold all around Europe. However this car will have an old and famous name, the Tipo.
The fastest version of the MINI Cooper, the John Cooper Works (JCW), will also be sold as the Clubman.
Expect the same engine fitted to the latest JCW Hardtop to be nestled under the hood of this JCW Clubman. That means a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivering 228 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels.
Other upgrades for the JCW Clubman should be a sports exhaust system, refined suspension technology, Brembo brakes and 17-inch wheels. The transmission will either be a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic with paddle shifters, and an electronic differential lock will be fitted as standard.
