Renault will further expand its electric vehicle family with a new zero-emission supermini inspired by the iconic ‘5’.

Presented last week as part of its ‘Renaulution’ strategic plan, the 5 Prototype has a retro design aimed, in part, to those who had (or still have) a soft spot for the original.

Re-branding it as an Alpine seems like a long shot, considering that the French automaker has different plans for its performance division, but it is nonetheless doable, and XTomi has given it a shot at trying to imagine how a new Renault 5 Alpine, or Alpine 5, might look like.

2021 Renault 5 Concept

Finished in Alpine’s signature blue, with a black roof and side mirror caps, and contrasted by white accents, the car also features new and bigger wheels and ‘Alpine’ lettering in the front bumper. The cockpit should, theoretically, sport a pair of body-hugging front seats, and possibly some carbon fiber trim to keep up with its sporty character.

A hypothetical Alpine-branded 5 would need other mods too, such as a re-tuned chassis with stiffer suspension, sharper steering and upgraded brakes. Logically, they would also give it more power than the standard model, although we have no info whatsoever about the new 5 EV’s powertrain, except that it’s an all electric one.

The 2022 BMW X4 M has traded Germany’s streets for the extreme cold of northern Sweden, which is where our spies caught this prototype testing.

Expected to be unveiled later this year, the facelift, or LCI in BMW speak, will arrive with the usual design revisions at both ends and, from what we can tell, a normal-sized grille.

The headlights have become a bit smaller and protrude less into the fenders and the bumper should feature new lower and side air intakes. At the back, the designers have kept the updates simple, with a redesigned bumper, diffuser and taillights. A small spoiler still rests on the tailgate, and further up, we can see that the roof-mounted wing looks different.

While we have yet to catch a clear glimpse of the cabin, our spies report that the infotainment screen will be bigger and the center console will be updated. The shifter knob is also believed to be new, and so is the iDrive controller.

In the current X4 M, the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine makes 473 HP and 442 lb-ft (598 Nm) of torque, and we wouldn’t expect the facelifted iteration to become more powerful. However, the X4 M Competition might get a boost in torque, considering that the latest M3 and M4, which share the same engine and 503 HP maximum output, boast 479 lb-ft (650 Nm).

眼看同集團兄弟車 Hyundai Tucson 完成大改款,新一代 Kia Sportage 也開始積極進行道路測試,預計會在今年 4 月發表,近日外媒《Kolesa.ru》透過偽裝測試車,繪製出新車的可能樣貌。

Kia 新一代 Sportage 預計今年 4 月問世,外媒釋出最新預想圖。

根據外媒釋出的外觀預想圖,新一代 Sportage 換上最新的品牌 Logo,車頭採用大面積的網格狀水箱護罩,並以白色的飾條包覆,頭燈組的造型相當獨特,呈現不規則狀,內部則是雙層燈組,有些類似新的 Kia Seltos 風格。

車尾設計相當簡潔,採用貫穿式的尾燈組,尾燈造型則是倒 C 型風格,整體輪廓和新 Tucson 相似,略為傾斜的車頂線條,進一步強調運動感。全新 Sportage 將與剛剛問世的大改款 Tucson 共用底盤平台,但 Sportage 將具備兩種軸距,長軸版本有望衍生出七人座車型。

車尾換上最新的 Kia 品牌 Logo,並搭配貫穿式尾燈組。

動力配置上,則會與 Tucson 共享,具備前輪與四輪驅動,搭載 1.6 升汽油與柴油渦輪引擎,並導入微油電技術,搭配六速手排或七速雙離合變速箱,另外還會有 PHEV 插電式混合車型,能輸出 261 匹最大綜效馬力。

同時外媒指出,大改款 Sportage 將搭載 Kia 最新的各項技術,包括半自動駕駛以及科技配備等,內裝方面,則會導入全數位儀錶板、大尺寸的影音娛樂系統,整體用料質感也會比現行版本更加優異,實際鋪陳仍須等測試車進一步卸除偽裝才會揭曉。
