The China-Only 3-Series L is Nearly As Long as the BMW 5 Series

The China-Only 3-Series L is Nearly As Long as the BMW 5 Series

The three proverbial “Ls” here stand for legroom, legroom and more legroom

Premium automakers give China special attention because the Chinese market is so big and lucrative that it makes a lot of financial sense for them to do so and that’s why they all have long-wheelbase versions of the sedans they sell there. The latest premium sedan to be launched is the all-new 3-Series from BMW, and it really didn’t take long for the stretched model to make its appearance.

This 2019 ’Lanborghini’ Urus Needs A Dictionary

We know Urus is an Italian and English is not its native language, but it is unacceptable when this bull comes with a price tag of $230,000

Imagine how frustrating it would be to six-digits on a “Lamborghini” and wind up getting something with Chinese-knockoff Quality? how does a “Lanborghini” sounds? Although it sounds like a silly typo, this is not expected after splurging close to $230,000. The owner of this Lamborghini Urus claims that his brand-new car is plagued with electronic word-botches. And, to top things off, everything got worse after a software update.

2020 Genesis SUV And 2020 Hyundai Sonata Coming In the Next 12 Months

2020 Genesis SUV And 2020 Hyundai Sonata Coming In the Next 12 Months

Glorious 2019 Year For Hyundai-Kia and Genesis

Hyundai and Genesis are in for a rather amazing year. Both brands will reveal as many as 13 different new models - some facelifted, some new. As per my understanding, the biggest news is the imminent arrival of a new premium SUV with a Genesis badge. Judging by the stunning new Hyundai Santa Fe SUV (that isn’t premium), I expect nothing less than extraordinary and stunning from the upcoming Genesis SUV. The second big debut for 2019 is the coming of the new Hyundai Sonata. We’re looking forward to that one too.

Will they save your lives or rat you out?

Volvo has decided to offer a driver-facing camera in its cars within the next one year, citing it as a safety feature.

Also, how are the introverts and camera-conscious people supposed to drive with camera staring at their face at the all time?

Does the 2019 Mercedes-AMG 4-Door Coupe Handle in Snow?

Does the 2019 Mercedes-AMG 4-Door Coupe Handle in Snow?

The video within shows how AMG GT four-door and other AMGs handle the white stuff

Most new Mercedes AMG products nowadays are only available with all-wheel drive, and the biggest and baddest of them all is the new four-door AMG. It’s a car that has been tested on road and on track, but so far nobody has documented their experience with the car on more loose surfaces, like fresh snow.

Instagram Girl of the Week: Sophiacalate (and a Mercedes G350d)

Instagram Girl of the Week: Sophiacalate (and a Mercedes G350d)

Remember Supercar Blondie? This is one of her rivals, 26-year-old Sophia Calate from Germany who’s amassed almost 43,000 followers on Instagram and now poses on a brand-new Mercedes G-Wagon powered by the 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, diesel. The result? An even better-looking Tirolean scenery.

The brand-new G-Class was unveiled last year and we all know it’s bigger than ever before while retaining the classic boxy appearance. But have you ever noticed how good it looks in cherry red parked on the Austrian snow next to a lake? As Sophia correctly points out in her Instagram post that has effortlessly collected over 4,000 likes, the name of the color is actually "Designo Hyazinthrot metallic," and it’s quite unusual for the G-Wagon, which is usually seen in funeral shades of silver or black.

The G350d is less bonkers that the V-8-engined AMG model although it still packs 283 horsepower and 442.5 pound-feet of torque, enough to send this block of metal from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.4 seconds and then on to a top speed of 123 mph. Inside, the G now has big screens on the dash and, in the middle, there are the controls for the faultless 9-speed transmission. You still, obviously, get three locking diffs which are very useful if you too want to tackle the Austrian mountainside this season.

Sophia asks in her post, "would you drive this as a Diesel?", and we’re passing this question down to you! Send your thoughts in the comments section below.

2021 Cadillac XLR Successor

2021 Cadillac XLR Successor

Based on the upcoming Corvette C8

The Cadillac XLR was a high-performance, luxury roadster built from 2004 to 2009 on the same platform as the Chevrolet Corvette C6. The nameplate could return when GM introduces the mid-engined, C8-generation Corvette.

Although there’s no official confirmation from Cadillac, leaked photos of a key fob suggest that the luxury brand will soon unveil a mid-engined sports car with a retractable roof. More specifically, the drawings on the fob look like the upcoming mid-engined Corvette, but also show a convertible roof. The C8-generation Corvette will break cover in 2019, so the Cadillac might follow sometime in 2020, for the 2021 model year. That’s a long wait, so here’s a rendering of the luxury roadster and everything we already know about it.

2018 BMW M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky Edition

A week into 2019 and we already have a front-runner for most unique one-off creation of the year

In an industry where standing out is imperative, BMW has found a way to create a one-off M850i xDrive Coupe using a material that’s literally out of this world. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the BMW M850i xDrive Coupe Night Sky Edition, and it comes with applications made from meteoritic material grace selected controls. The one-off M850i is the creation of BMW’s Individual customization division, and it arrived in time for the first meteor shower of 2019, which took place all over the world on January 3. It’s unclear if the M850i Night Sky Edition is earmarked for a specific person. What’s clear, though, is that BMW Individual is off to a rousing start in 2019. If future projects are as interesting as this, Bimmer’s personalization division could have a huge year in its hands.

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman Is Nothing Short Of The Royal Penthouse Suite

I am ready to sell my house and kidneys to buy this

The Mercedes-Maybach S-Class Pullman is truly luxury on wheels. This is perhaps the best the brand has done in terms of opulence to date. This car is a rare find, and we haven’t seen or heard much about it since its debut. This time, however, Shmee150 has gotten his hands on the pre-facelift S600 Pullman and has shown us what this chariot feels like from inside.
