Stellantis is expanding its crossover lineup with a new subcompact model for Alfa Romeo. The fabled Italian brand is reviving the “Milano” moniker, which was last used during the early 1990s for a compact sedan that rivaled the E30. The reboot is clearly not a 3 Series fighter, but rather a competitor to the upcoming MINI Aceman. The BMW Group’s small EV will break cover on April 24. The Milano is actually Alfa Romeo’s first EV, but unlike the electric-only Aceman, it’s going to be sold with combustion engines as well. It’s an attractive little crossover that measures just 4.17 meters (164.1 i ..read more

Most people are not buying small crossovers to line them up for a drag race, but plenty of automakers do sell high-performance versions. Such is the case with MINI and its not-so-mini 2025 Countryman in the John Cooper Works specification. BMW’s iX2 should also be quick off the line given its instant torque delivered by the pair of electric motors. The two BMW Group models fought in a series of drag and rolling races against two similarly sized vehicles from the Volkswagen Group: Audi SQ2 and the VW T-Roc R. One would expect the iX2 xDrive30 to have the best start of the four given its EV setu ..read more

MINI is one of the brands that should have benefited the most from the electrification of the automobile. MINI vehicle’s compact dimensions and relatively lightweight are the perfect foil to the limitations early batteries had. While they were arguably a little late to the game – the MINI Cooper Electric debuted in 2020 – the original electrified MINI Cooper is still fun to drive and great for city commuting. It’s pretty affordable, too – we found an excellent, super-low mile 2021 MINI Cooper SE for under $20,000. Think it’s a good buy? We do. Overall Affordability Like all electric vehicles ..read more

The life of an automotive journalist is full of adventures. While it may not boast the highest salary, it’s undeniably abundant in experiences.
