2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250

The GLA 250 is an all-round package, but all the droolworthy features are offered as optional that make it exorbitantly expensive

Mercedes launched the 2021 GLA in July last year and promoted it as a much safer, spacious, and off-road-oriented compact vehicle. While we don’t agree that offering a four-wheel-drive system makes it an off-roader, it certainly seems to have become a better package overall.

The GLA is a seasoned product that only gotten better this time around. It feels a lot more luxurious and modern than its predecessor. But, does spending close to $40,000 for an entry-level, compact Mercedes with a four-pot mill make a whole lot of sense?

Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We're Not So Sure

Drifting in a RWD Porsche Taycan? We’re Not So Sure

Can this be the most engaging EV?

Ever since EVs have started popping up like mushrooms, a lot of car enthusiasts have deemed them unholy, soulless, and boring to drive. However, there’s another side to it, as demonstrated in this video from the channel Seen Through Glass. The channel is actually quite fun, since it showcases expensive cars and supercars in a more entertaining way, sometimes even using them not how they were intended. This gives us a chance to get answers to questions we never thought we’d be asking. For example, can an all-electric Porsche Taycan drift?

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

Nissan’s full-size SUV has been updated with fresh tech, but does that make it good enough?

The Nissan Armada started life back in 2004 riding on Nissan Titan underpinnings and was built in Canton Mississippi. All that changed when the second-generation was launched for the 2017 model year, with production shifting to Yakuhashi, Kyushu, Japan as Nissan based the second-gen on Nissan Patrol underpinnings that feature some very specific modifications to make it suitable for the North American market. As of 2021, the Nissan Armada has been updated to feature a prettier face, a new center console inside, and some updated technology. As is the case with all refreshed models, we’ve been wondering if Nissan did enough to keep the Armada relevant in such a brutally competitive market. Does it hold its own against the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition? Well, let’s find out.

Apparently It Costs A Fortune To Charge a Tesla In Texas Right Now

Apparently It Costs A Fortune To Charge a Tesla In Texas Right Now

The biggest advantage of owing an electric vehicle just went down the drain

The winter snow in Texas left people dead in their tracks. It has impacted even basic services like power and water and has left the Lone Star state crippled. People there are facing electricity bills as high as $17,000, which shows what a massive impact the storm has had on the day-to-day lives of the residents. The rocketed prices have affected EV owners, too, as Oilprice.com reports that charging a Tesla cost the owners around $900, which is almost 50 times more than how much it generally costs!

The 2022 Mercedes C-Class Is Bringing S-Class Tech To The Middle Class

The new C-Class is here in sedan and wagon guise with a lot of tech trickled down from larger S-Class

The C-Class is to Mercedes-Benz what the 3 Series is to BMW. That is best demonstrated by the amount of tech Stuttgart poured into the new C-Class via the S-Class flagship. Here’s everything you need to know about the new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is expected to hit U.S. showrooms in early 2022.

Yet Another Reason BMW Engines Are Junk

Yet Another Reason BMW Engines Are Junk

Okay, not all BMW engines are junk, but there have been a few that aren’t exactly on the top of the dependability list

As a car enthusiast who spends some of its time watching YouTube, you may have stumbled onto Tyler Hoover’s channel – Hoovie’s Garage. The YouTuber consistently opens up with the slogan “The dumbest automotive channel on YouTube”, but we like to think it’s more of an educational/entertaining automotive channel. Mostly with regards to what we shouldn’t be buying. With this in mind, Tyler, once again, walks us through (or under) one of his many “hoopties”, as he likes to call them.

The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Takes Aim At the BMW M3 and Audi RS5

The 2022 Lexus IS 500 F Sport Performance Takes Aim At the BMW M3 and Audi RS5

It makes 472 horses and takes just 4.5 seconds to 60 mph

Lexus has launched the 2022 IS 500 F Sport Performance model. It is the first model in the automaker’s new ‘F Sport Performance Line’ series. The biggest talking point is the 5.0-liter, V-8 engine under the hood. The IS moniker has been around for a long time now, but it’s still trying to find its feet as a worthy contender to the three Germans. Lexus has made a lot of mechanical enhancements to sell it as a sporty sedan, but only time will tell if a V-8 was all the IS needed to make a splash.

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

It looks spectacular, is feature-rich, and comes with an electric-only range of 80 miles

Karma Automotive is back in the news, this time for the introduction of its latest vehicle called the GS-6. The GS-6 is essentially the Revero GT that the company revealed in the past, but with few significant changes. Karma plans to use the Revero moniker for a future, upmarket product.

Anyway, the GS-6 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that debuts in the “new luxury” segment; a term coined by Karma to perhaps create a new niche. The GS-6 is not priced as exorbitantly high as the previous products and starts under $100,000.

Mercedes GLE Coupe

Mercedes GLE Coupe

An off-beat choice that comes with sweet engine options, spacious interior, and top-notch tech

The Mercedes GLE is everything you’d need in a vehicle. It looks handsome (if you’re into coupes, that is), feels premium on the inside, comes with tech features that will make nerds go weak in their knees, and powertrain options that will satisfy your adrenaline rush. On paper, every requirement is ticked well. But, it’s still not a complete package. The automaker left some rough edges that are glaringly evident, especially in the ride quality and ergonomics department. Will these prove to be deal-breakers, or can the overall package swerve your decision to choose it over the BMW X6 or the Audi SQ5? .

2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon

2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon

If you’re looking to stand out, the AMG E63 S will not disappoint as long as you’ve got six figures to spend.

While the station wagon may have been a big hit in the United States long ago, today, out of all the cars sold on the U.S. market, only a handful are offered in the wagon body style. Of course, you have mainstays like the Subaru Outback, Audi A4 Allroad, and the Volvo V90 Cross Country and there are a few more obscure models like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo and soon to be forever gone Jaguar XF Sportbrake. A few others are out there too, like the car you see here, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon – a go-fast wagon that can easily make you forget that you’re an SUV-loving American living smack dab in the middle of North America. We recently spend a week with the AMG E63 S to see if it really was a strong, sexy alternative to the many, many SUVs on the market, and you’ll be surprised what we’ve learned.

What Is Maserati Trying To Show Us In These "Official Spy Shots" Of The Grecale?

What Is Maserati Trying To Show Us In These "Official Spy Shots" Of The Grecale?

Let the guessing games begin

Firstly, this "official spyshots" game is lame. We don’t know where it started from, but it has spread like wildfire and for the sake of the hype, carmakers are dropping camouflaged teasers of their cars left, right, and center.

Secondly, Maserati is brewing a second SUV/crossover and by the looks of it, this new model going to slot under the Levante and keep some of its styling cues, albeit in a shrunken format.

2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT

2021 Audi SQ7 TFSI by ABT

The tuner has equipped the SUV with new wheels and a host of other add-ons inside-out, but hasn’t made any performance upgrades

ABT is back with another Audi build, this time for the SQ7. The automaker recently ditched the diesel engine from this vehicle and dropped an even more powerful V-8 gasoline mill under the hood. In the standard form, the SUV comes with 500+ horses, which is already on the higher end. So, ABT decided to give this bit a skip for this build and went ahead with making changes to the interior and the exterior. The aesthetic changes are significant and make the already-hot SQ7 even hotter.

2022 BMW iX

2022 BMW iX

Previously known as the iNEXT, the iX marks many firsts for the company’s EV future and will debut in the second-half of 2021

BMW revealed an interesting concept called the iNEXT at the 2018 Paris Auto Show. This was the time when the automaker also introduced us to the huge kidney grille. Who knew it would spread like a virus within the portfolio with many of them boasting it on their faces in the years to come?

Anyway, the iNEXT was soon renamed to iX, and BMW said that it will be roughly the size of the X5. But unlike the iX3, which is essentially the electric version of the standard X3, the iX will be much more. For starters, it’s based on a completely new platform that will underpin the future electric models, too.

It Seems That Mercedes Is Afraid the EQC EV Can’t Compete With Tesla

It’s a risky move, but ultimately a good one if the timing isn’t right

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz EQC launch date in the U.S. has been pushed back yet again after what the German automaker described as a “comprehensive review of market developments.” The all-electric SUV was originally scheduled to arrive in the U.S. in early 2020, but Mercedes pushed back deliveries of the model by a year to early 2021. Now, it looks like we’re not going to see the EQC anytime soon.

2023 BMW 7 Series

BMW needs to respond to the new S-Class, and it has to do it quickly

The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is nothing but a declaration of high-tech war aimed at its two main rivals, the Audi A8 and the 7 Series. BMW’s flagship received a hefty facelift in 2019 for the 2020 model year and other than the enlarged grille, it got a tech upgrade, including BMW’s then-new iDrive 7.0 setup. However, you can only stay relevant for a short time in the current luxury car climate and with the S-Class making no rebates on the technology front, BMW is already working on the next-generation 7er. Here’s everything we know so far.

2021 Ford Expedition XL STX

The five-seater now starts at $50,000; 3,000 bucks cheaper than the previous starting price

There are many of us who want a full-size SUV but not the third row. In fact, you might just keep the third row folded always because you need the cargo space more than the seats. If you fall in that category, Ford has a solution for you.

For the 2021 model, the company has released a two-row version of its Expedition SUV that not only gives you the practicality of a full-size SUV, but also shaves $3,000 off the sticker price. It is offered as the new base trim within the lineup, but comes with enough features to keep you happy.

The Jaguar XJ is Dead, and The Rest of the Lineup Might Follow

Jaguar plans big changes in the near future

With the increasing expansion of electric vehicles, more and more car companies are rethinking their strategies. One of the latest cases is Jaguar. The esteemed car manufacturer from Great Britain will be making a complete transition to electric propulsion in the coming years. This means that some of our favorite models from Jaguar will undoubtedly face extinction, starting with the flagship sedan – XJ. What does this mean for the rest of the brand’s current lineup? How much of it will be left and what can we expect in the future?

GMC reincarnates the Hummer moniker

GM announced the reincarnation of the Hummer moniker in early 2020 as an EV, to much surprise. It was supposed to debut in May last year, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and it had to be pushed by a few months. In October, the super truck was finally revealed with a whole lot of information.

The Hummer EV boasts of specs that can throw the competition out of the water, but it comes with a starting sticker price of $80,000, which makes it a super-premium offering. So, is this mouth-watering product with an eye-watering price tag the ultimate truck that you need in your garage?
