2022 Infiniti QX55 vs 2022 Infiniti QX50
SUVs are the new norm but how about coupe-SUVs? Yes, they are seamlessly attractive vehicles for whom practicality and sleek coupe-like design matter. Infiniti recently launched a more advanced and more performance-centric SUV which is heavily based on the entry-level QX50 but has a higher price tag (of course), is more coupe-like, has engine hardware and software refinements, has more standard features, and of course a better interior experience including a refined ride quality. But that makes the QX50 inferior, right? Not exactly. The QX50 is a proper compact SUV with a lot of “goods” for the price like its meticulously crafted cabin, loads of features on offer, and everything feels right except for the dual infotainment displays which might be fiddly to use on the go. For the 2022 model year, Infiniti has added the ProPilot Assist suite for all the trims, made wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility too, and a few added features sprinkled across all five trims. So if both of them have already impressed you, which one would be your pick?
2022 Nissan Versa
As a part of the third generation, Nissan’s littlest compact sedan lives among very capable competition. It is comfortable, spacious, and comes decently equipped for the asking price. Do you want to take the joy further with its manual transmission offered as default? Keep reading to learn more about the Nissan Versa.
2022 Infiniti QX50
The 2022 model year of the most-compact Infiniti arrives with more tech including a whole suite of driving assistance features and optional visual upgrades. It is one of the best you could buy for the price and is quite reliable, which is obvious coming from a Nissan brand. But it is not all perfect given that Infiniti boasts about the VC-Turbo engine while it is not quite as efficient and nor powerful.
2022 Lexus LC 500 Convertible
We have always appreciated Lexus for offering a lot for the price, and the LC 500 represents the brand’s flagship. Lexus decided to launch a roofless version of the LC 500 coupe and, with the 2022 model year, nothing much has changed. We get to see the old design language, which is not getting old either but the interior surely is. We love how the LC 500 Convertible looks and feels like a flagship from the Toyota-owned luxury brand. Like the coupe, the convertible gets powered by a big 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8, returning eargasmic exhaust notes, but now you can hear them raw by reclining the roof. Sadly, unlike the coupe, the convertible doesn’t get the Bespoke Build program arranged by Lexus to simply cater to consumer interests by letting them choose the right items to be fitted inside the cabin. The system is still not Rolls Royce like, but it is a nice start. The 2022 LC 500 Convertible gets a retuned suspension just like the coupe as standard and an extended color choice of up to nine.
2022 Genesis G80
The Genesis’ G80 sedan is one of our favorites when it comes to recommending or even considering a flagship mid-size sedan. For the 2022 model year, it barely changed but there are some serious additions to the list like rear-wheel steering and an enhanced suspension. Can it be the ultimate mid-size luxury sedan among other leading options?
2022 Nissan Armada
Not many companies are successful in the full-size SUV market other than the American ones like Ford and GM. But if you step out of the popular options, there is this monster coming from the house of Nissan, strictly made for the American interests. This Nissan Armada is a serious full-size SUV packed with a good amount of luxury and performance but there are some caveats - a few of which are quite big.
2022 Volkswagen Taos
Being the most compact VW SUV you can buy right now, we are genuinely surprised by how good the Taos is. While the Tiguan was the most compact till now, the Taos, being the smallest, is surprisingly comfy in the rear which, in our opinion, is quite rare in this segment. It is decently powerful, packs a good amount of cabin and driver assistance features while holding a cheap price tag of $22,995. So, what do you get for that price?
2022 Toyota Camry
The Camry is in its eighth generation and is one of Toyota’s best-selling cars outside of the RAV4. The Camry went through a major update for the 2021 model year, but little has changed for 2022. Engine options include your choice of a four-cylinder and a V-6, with the latter offering up 301 horsepower, and there’s an optional AWD system.
2022 Nissan Altima
While we often hear about the Honda Accord, Mazda 6,, and even Toyota Camry, the Nissan Altima is a serious contender and is no less than any other mid-size sedans in the segment. Being in its sixth generation, which got introduced for the 2019 model year, it is now sharper and feature-packed. It is powered by a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline-four engine which is mated to a CVT. FWD is standard, although AWD is available as an option. There is a special engine available for the mid-SR trim which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four but sadly no AWD is offered. As for the changes for 2022, there aren’t many of them, but Nissan adds a new Midnight Edition package for the SR which adds a darker exterior look while the SV Premium package adds heated exterior mirrors and LED turn indicators to the list. No doubt the 2022 Nissan Altima is an impressive budget sedan with a starting price of $24,550, while the competition starts from $25,500. So, will the attractive price tag of the Altima make it a good value, or are there some serious compromises?
2022 Hyundai Kona
Arriving with significant updates both to the exterior and interior, the new 2022 Kona brings hope not only to younger buyers but also enthusiasts with the newly added Kona N Line and N. While the looks and the aesthetics have taken a sharper appeal, the mechanics have stayed the same, except for the addition of a CVT to the base engine. We think that the new Kona is a breakthrough in how compact SUVs should look and feel, but, should you buy one?
2022 Honda Pilot
If you’re in the market for something practical and family-oriented, but don’t want a minivan, then you might want to consider the Honda Pilot because of its good build quality and a roomy cabin. While the exterior remains technically unchanged for 2022, Honda has added LED headlights, an eight-inch touchscreen display, and even eliminated two of the entry-level trims. Still, it manages to be a very successful mid-size eight-seater SUV. How does it perform against the visually exciting Kia Telluride, Volkswagen Atlas, and even the Dodge Durango? Get cozy and read the full review.
2022 Jeep Renegade
The Renegade has been the smallest and the cheapest Jeep SUV you can buy right now! For the 2022 model year, Jeep decided to keep the small SUV as it is in terms of the overall design but has ditched the 2.4-liter engine as well as a lot of the trim levels. The Renegade was introduced back in 2015 and is still in its first generation, so should you buy it now or consider other options like the Kia Seltos,, Hyundai Kona, or the Mazda CX-30?
2021 Audi A8 L Horch
Audi resurrected its luxury brand name, Horch, with the introduction of the ultra-lux A8 L and the A8 L Horch will be a China-exclusive model, as the market has more cravings for long-wheelbase luxury sedans. It will go head-to-head with the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class which has been the German-marque of ultra-luxury. Does the A8 L Horch have what it takes?
2022 Dodge Durango
Dodge’s muscle SUV is in its eleventh year of production and it will probably be the last before it gets a new generation. The changelog happens to be with the base SXT getting seven seats as standard along with blindspot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. The brand decided to ax the SRT Hellcat trim with the beastly 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8, which is a bit of shame.
2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
We love how the E-Class has been one of the benchmarks in the mid-size luxury sedan segment besides the 5 Series and the A6. It is still in its fifth generation and in that regard, Mercedes has given a facelift with updated looks and a lot of advanced electronics. The 2022 model year pretty much has all the features with fewer additions making the E-Class a complete no-brainer in terms of recommendations. So should you consider the E-Class or just go with other options from BMW and Audi? Let’s uncover the facts, shall we?
2022 Lexus LC 500
Since its earlier production days, the LC 500 has been the most gorgeous Lexus coupe available and has remained strangely similar to the concept it is based on. Since then, not much has changed, and now for the 2022 model year, Lexus is offering a custom build for both the LC 500 and LC 500h that will allow you to customize your unique LC 500.
2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R
The German automobile conglomerate known as VAG has announced their most popular crossover globally, the T-Roc, with a facelift, and while the facelift brings a lot of changes to the overall design, it adds a lot of features too. The R variant of the T-Roc, however is majorly unchanged, especially in the powertrain department. But it is no slow bugger at all! So, how does it square up for the 2022 model year?
2022 Maserati Levante
Maserati’s hot SUV got no major updates with the new model year but is certainly still one of the best-looking in its segment. It packs the Italian wildness while giving you a feeling of luxury inside the cabin. But for the starting price of $80,895, should you consider it without leaning towards the leading competitors from Germany? Let’s dig deeper.
2022 Volkswagen Atlas
This Tennessee-built VW SUV is why you should look up to the mid-size segment, and for the 2022 model year, there have been some minor changes, including the discontinuation of the base S trim from the line-up, therefore, increasing the price. It will compete with the latest-gen Hyundai Palisade, Mazda CX-9, and the Honda Pilot. Will the $33,475 price tag justify its consideration over the competition? Keep reading to learn more about it.
The 2022 VW T-Roc Arrives With New Looks, Fresh Tech, and is More Practical than Ever
Volkswagen has revealed the updated T-Roc for the 2022 model and with it comes an all-new Cabriolet cabriolet body style. The updated looks and better technology aims to continue the T-Roc’s reign as one of the best-selling SUVs from the house of Volkswagen.
2022 Maserati Ghibli
The 2022 Ghibli is back with three easy-to-remember trims and a few added driver assistance features. It is still powered by the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 and the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 as its previous iterations. The Ghibli has been one of the best alternatives to the leading German sedans such as the E-Class or the 5 Series. So should you consider it given the fact that it is priced higher than the competition? Is it worth the starting price of $76,000?
2022 Lexus LS 500
As Lexus’s flagship luxury sedan, the LS 500 brings a host of features to the table while costing considerably less than the S-Class and 7 Series. For the 2022 model year, it stayed the same physically but Lexus has added the Safety System + 2.5 as standard along with the Mark Levinson sound system as an option to the base trim. So, will it satiate your thirst for luxury and the feeling of being in an executive sedan?
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class
While the other German SUVs are getting updated with new-generation models, the current GLC-Class is still a part of its first-generation model introduced back in 2016. Although the changes made to it for the 2020 model year did make it one of the best-looking to date, some would argue that it’s still not as compelling as the BMW X3 and Audi Q5. Apart from the standard feature upgrades, there aren’t many changes. So should you opt for GLC-Class or maybe wait for a new generation?
2022 Porsche Macan S
The Macan S sits in the sweet spot of the Macan range. The updated 2.9-liter twin-turbo engine blends with Porsche’s handling wizardry to bring performance and handling so close to that of the Porsche 911 that you won’t believe it. But is it enough if to be relevant in a world where it must compete with cars like the BMW X4, Audi SQ5, and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio? Let’s dive in.
2022 Ford Focus
After giving a few but necessary tweaks to the Fiesta, Ford is back with a newly designed Focus with a few major improvements over the earlier model years. Apart from the updated front fascia, there are tweaks made to the cabin as well, including the addition of a large 13.2-inch touchscreen and a fully digital instrument panel. A dual-clutch automatic joins the game and will be available throughout the Focus lineup.
Audi Can Make Your E-Tron Go A Little Further, But There’s A Catch
Audi e-Tron owners, 2019-20 model years, receive a free software update that will add about 12 miles or 20 kilometers to its total range. The update also optimized the thermal management along with electrical losses in the motor. It is after three years that the company rolled out an update to improve the mileage efficiency of its first-ever EV, and for starters, the overall mileage was not that great if compared to the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace, and the Tesla Model Y.
Detailed Insights Of The New Mercedes-AMG SL’s Interior

2022 Toyota Highlander

While it is not perfect, will the downsides affect you? Well, you will be surprised.

2022 Kia Forte
One of Kia’s cheapest sedans, the Forte, entered 2022 with some exterior design changes and a few added features to make it look modern among the competition.

2022 Acura ILX
Since the 2013 model year, the ILX has come a long way without the need of introducing a new generation. But the 2022 model year is just as same as the2019 facelift which makes no sense. However, it is the cheapest Acura to wear its expensive badging and in our opinion, it is still a good-looking car. So what might be the things that could have been better?
2022 Volkswagen Golf R Mk8
After pulling the plug on the regular Golf, Volkswagen retained the GTI and R with the new generation in the U.S. A more powerful 315 horsepower pumping 2.0-liter engine is powering the Golf R and with that comes AWD as standard. The interior gets more sophisticated as it gets a bigger infotainment display and a fully digital instrument console along with ambient lighting and other goodies.

2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia
The Giulia, is a well-known sports sedan from the house of Alfa Romeo that does not fit in a category the Germans ace in. It is a lot different with its sexy Italian looks, performance, and handling capabilities that can take the enthusiast inside of you to another zone. With the 2022 model year, Alfa Romeo did a few tweaks in the exterior with the new Veloce trim, and other than that, there are a few feature updates as well.

2022 Infiniti Q60
If you are planning to buy a two-door coupe with a powerful engine, it doesn’t have to be the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, the BMW 4 Series, or the Audi A5 with all the handling finesse.

2022 Acura RDX
Acura boasting the RDX with its “best-selling SUV” title in its segment since 2006 is no hoax.

2022 Volkswagen Golf GTI

2022 Lexus ES
The Lexus has recieved a few necessary updates, and now it is ready to compete well with the German mid-size luxury sedans like the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, and Mercedes-Benz E Class.

2022 Lexus IS 500 F SPORT Performance
The IS family already has a 5.0-liter V-8 stuffed into the regular 500, which turned out to be a fire-breathing performer.

2022 Toyota GR 86
Entering its second generation, the GR 86 has uplifting expectations as a coupe, and carries forward quite a few elements which make it stick to “the roots”. And that, we all know that the GR 86 shares a lot of DNA with the Subaru BRZ, including the same chassis and the engine, but some would argue that the former is lighter and manageable in most conditions. For the 2022 model year, the 86 features a flat-four engine layout but the size has gone up to 2.4-liter and it is still naturally aspirated. The new 86 is offered with your choice of a manual or automatic transmission.

Let’s dig into the goods and the bad of the Honda E in detail.
