    Frankfurt: 2014 Dacia Duster furthers our admiration from afar [w/video]
    1378932000

    Despite riding on a unibody and being more of a softroader than a proper 4x4, the Dacia Duster has always sort of reminded us of the Nissan XTerra. In other words, it's basic, hard-wearing, handsome and affordable in a really compelling way. In the US market, that hasn't worked out to big sales ...

    1378929660

    BMW has brought a slightly different concept vehicle to the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Rather than something that foreshadows a future product or a new design direction, the Munich-based manufacturer has brought an X5 that's designed to be shot at. It's called the Concept X5 Security Plus. The ...

    Frankfurt: 2014 Land Rover LR4 treads a little more lightly
    1378927200

    Despite being one of Land Rover's biggest volume models, the LR4/Discovery has had to sit idly by while its brethren received all manner of attention, including all-new generations and major updates. Well, Land Rover is finally lavishing some attention on its three-row breadwinner, which is ...

    1378926000

    The Spark-Renault SRT_01E looks like it'd be at home on any Formula One track in the world, but this is a car with a different destiny: the all-electric Formula E series. Unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show this week, the SRT_01E from Spark Racing Technology is a 200-kilowatt/270-horsepower ...

    Frankfurt: VW Golf R gets super serious with near 300 HP [w/video]
    1378924800

    The VW Golf R has always been a GTI on steroids. But even with a bigger dose of performance-enhancing power than the GTI, every generation of R has left us wanting more. Until now, we think. The fourth generation Golf R, based on the seventh-gen Golf, has officially debuted at the Frankfurt Motor ...

    Frankfurt: Abarth 595 50th Anniversary Edition is a birthday present worth waiting for [w/video]
    1378923600

    Props must be paid to the people at Abarth, who could've celebrated the 50th anniversary of the 595 – the model that put this performance brand on the map back in the 1960s – with a special edition appearance package and called it a day. But no, that's not how Abarth does things. ...

    Frankfurt: Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo 'iBusiness' is, in fact, the business
    1378922400

    During my time here in Frankfurt, my gracious Volkswagen hosts have been shuttling me to and from the Messe in the very excellent (and very European) Multivan. But not just any Multivan – the top-of-the-line plush-tastic Business model, complete with six-passenger seating and the ability to ...

    Frankfurt: Citroën Cactus Concept declares an end to door dings [w/video]
    1378921200

    This is the Citroën Cactus Concept, a car we previewed almost two weeks ago, which was then unveiled last week. Now, we have a full gallery of live images. You'll recall that Citroën opted to split its line, with the C-Line models like the C2, C3 and C4 being remodeled to play in the ...

    Frankfurt: VW unveils e-Load Up! to electrify the commercial crowd
    1378920000

    Large delivery vans might make sense in American cities with broader boulevards and ample parking day or night, but crowded European city streets demand something a little smaller. And so Volkswagen has unveiled the e-Load Up! Based on the existing Up! five-door, the e-Load Up! stands out not ...

    Frankfurt: Radical RXC will turn your commute into a track day [w/video]
    1378916460

    It's been well over a year since we first heard about the Radical RXC, a street-legal, Le Mans-style prototype put together by a brand that's renowned for its nimble track-day weapons. We've reported on the RXC intermittently, although that's hardly down to a lack of desire for the new car. With ...

    Frankfurt: Toyota Yaris Hybrid-R is road-going version of brand's racing technology [w/video]
    1378915200

    Did you know that the Yaris is Toyota's best-selling vehicle in Europe? That may help explain to us Americans why the car that's lowest on the company's totem poll here in the US got turned into an all-wheel-drive hybrid track monster for the 2013 Frankfurt Monster Show. Called the Toyota Yaris ...

    When it comes to European auto shows, your intrepid Autoblog coverage staff is always keen to see what the French have to offer.

    Frankfurt: Jeep Wrangler Polar is a tasty frozen treat
    1378911660

    Perhaps it's because we've seen so many kitted-out examples over the years, but it seems to us that the Jeep Wrangler tends to wear its special-edition duds better than most models. It might be the icon's familiar rectilinear proportions or the inherent bolt-on look of its extremities – ...

    Frankfurt: Opel gets its Regal on with the new Insignia, OPC lineup
    1378908060

    If we had to pick an Opel to join the Buick range, it's an overwhelmingly safe bet that it'd be the new Insignia OPC Tourer, a 325-horsepower, all-wheel drive wagon, with an optional six-speed manual and the ability to hit 60 in a (sandbagged) 6.3 seconds. It makes its American equivalent, the ...

    1378905600

    Last month, Kia released a few photos of the European-market 2014 Soul ahead of its Frankfurt Motor Show reveal, and we happened to notice that the hamster box looked a bit different – a bit tougher. That's because Kia is adding an SUV Styling Pack to the car's options list, which includes ...

The next iteration to make its debut is this, the S63 AMG, taking the stage here in Frankfurt. No, the S63 isn't quite the top ...

    Frankfurt: Land Rover debuts Range Rover Hybrid, not bound for US
    1378902660

    Considering what year it is, it almost seems weird to say that Land Rover has just introduced its very first production hybrid here at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. After all, automakers have been getting into the gasoline-electric game for well over a decade now. Nevertheless, Landie's first ...
