Alfa Romeo Is Working On A Mild-Hybrid SUV

The flagship SUV that will be the largest Alfa Romeo vehicle, which won’t arrive for two to three years, might not be its thirstiest. That’s because this model reportedly will be the first from the brand to offer a hybrid setup—one that should boost performance as well. The news comes from Alfa Romeo chief technical […]

2018 Jaguar XF

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake First Drive Review

With Jaguar now offering consumers two SUVs and an all-electric crossover arriving in the next few months, the idea of a Jaguar station wagon is not as shockingly iconoclastic as it was when the X-Type Sportwagon arrived in the U.S. back in 2005. Indeed, the 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake almost seems almost mundane. Mainstream, even. […]

This Sure Looks Like A New Bullitt Mustang

For 2018, the Ford Mustang gets a significant update. Now it looks like the special-edition Bullitt model will make a comeback, too. Spy photos posted to Mustang6G.com show what appears to be a new Bullitt Mustang apparently shot during commercial filming somewhere in Chicago.

2017 Mercedes S-Class

New Mercedes S-Class 2017 Facelift Review

The S-Class is famous for being a tech leader in the car industry, as well as a core model for Mercedes. It’s used as a test bed for the brand, as features filter down into lesser models over the years. To stop the S-Class from falling behind, Mercedes has updated it with new equipment and […]

2017 Toyota Prius Prime

2017 Toyota Prius Prime Quick Spin

The Prius Prime offers about 25 miles of all-electric driving if you pop it into EV mode and leave it there. Those are, by far, the best 25 miles you’ll drive in the Prime all day (unless, of course, you’re able to charge it up before going out again). Those 25 miles are quiet and […]

2018 Audi S5

2018 Audi S5 Coupe Drivers’ Notes

It may not look all that different from the outgoing model, but the 2018 Audi S5 coupe is all new both inside and out. The V6 ditches a supercharger for a single twin-scroll turbo that provides 21.5 psi of boost. That engine is mated with ZF’s wonderful eight-speed automatic and sends power to all four […]

2018 Toyota Camry

2018 Toyota Camry First Drive Review

You have to applaud Toyota’s derring-do. The company CEO, whose name just happens to be on the headquarters building, has ordered his lieutenants to shake up the franchise midsize sedan. Leaden with a (deserved) sand-beige image, the Camry needed some invigoration and sex appeal, especially as more families were seen migrating from sedans to SUVs. […]
