Prices will rise by 4 to 7 percent starting on Monday.
We get a sneak preview of the upcoming luxury crossover.
It's been a busy week for the engineers in Munich. Last Friday, we caught a pretty decent look at the upcoming BMW 8 Series coupe and convertible. On Monday, spy photographers captured photos the new BMW X7 testing out on public roads. We even got a couple shots of the interior. Today, we have a good look at the X7's smaller sibling, the new BMW X5.
BMW has officially launched its new vehicle subscription service, becoming the latest automaker to embrace the more flexible alternative to traditional leasing. It's called Access by BMW, and it'll offer a selection of vehicles in two tiers via a new mobile app or dedicated website.
This will sit below the upcoming BMW X7.
The future of night vision is bright.
BMW will recall about 840,000 vehicles from the 2007-2015 model years to replace their Takata airbag inflators.
The EPA challenged the 2016 BMW X5 xDrive 35d to its more rigorous testing for diesel models, and the SUV passed. It should arrive at dealers by late January.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is starting to announce the expanded Takata airbag inflator recalls. FCA has over 5 million vehicles affected worldwide, and BMW has over 420,000 in the US. Honda's expansion includes 350,000 more Civics and Accords.
BMW is working hard to keep up with the high demand for its crossovers. The expansion at the Spartanburg plant should help things by giving a big boost to annual capacity.
Jimmy Kimmel has a bit of a rivalry going with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Not like the "I'm on television, you're on the radio" one he has with his former Man Show co-host Adam Carolla (who of course has more to do with cars than the last name he almost shares with a Toyota economy sedan). With Blunt and Krasinski, it's more of a prank rivalry.
