A Hotter Version of The Genesis G70 Sounds Spicy, Doesn’t It?
The Genesis G70 is arguably the best compact luxury sedan on the market today, and if new rumors have any weight to them, the G70 could give birth to a hotter offspring in the near future. Neither Hyundai nor Genesis have confirmed plans to build a performance-spec G70, but Hyundai’s head product planner, Mike O’Brien, dropped an interesting hint at the 2019 North American International Auto Show that suggests that a high-performance version of the G70 could be in the works. If that happens, the BMW M3s and Mercedes-AMG C63s of the world could have a new challenger to worry about sooner than later.
The 2020 Mercedes CLA Will Become More Practical in the Future as it Morphs into a New Shape
Mercedes-Benz is already parading camouflaged prototypes of its upcoming CLA wagon, the second generation of the load-lugging four-door coupe that is based on the A-Class. This time the model is all the more unique since there is no bigger CLS shooting brake anymore, so buyers looking for this type of sporty looking wagon within the Mercedes range will have to settle for the new CLA.
2020 Cadillac XT6
Introduced in early 2019, the Cadillac XT6 is the company’s first three-row SUV besides the massive Escalade. It bridges the gap between the latter and the compact XT5 and it rounds off Cadillac’s four-SUV lineup for the 2020 model year. It’s built on the same platform as the Chevrolet Traverse, so it’s pretty much a rebodied, fancier version of the GMC Acadia Denali.
The XT6 arrives to compete in a crowded SUV segment that already includes high sellers like the BMW X5, Audi Q7, and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class. The Caddy also goes against the new Lincoln Aviator, the popular Acura MDX, and segment leader Lexus RX. How does it compare to some of its most important rivals? Let’s find out in the review below.
BMW Settles In Class Action Lawsuit for Poor Key Fob Design
It really sucks when you accidentally lock yourself out of your car, especially if you’re stuck somewhere you’d rather not be. Apparently, BMW X5 owners who underwent this ordeal may be able to place the blame on the design of their key fobs, as BMW is currently facing down a class action lawsuit for poor design of the locking function.
2020 Lexus RC F Track Edition
The Lexus RC F Track Edition is track-prepped version of the company’s compact coupe. It was unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show alongside the updated RC F, so it benefits form all the add-ons introduced with the facelift.
Although it doesn’t feature a more powerful engine, the Track Edition is more dynamic thanks to a handful of aerodynamic tweaks and weight-saving measures. Lexus promises quicker lap times in this vehicle, which is aimed at German track cars such as the BMW M4 GTS. Spotted testing since early 2018, this coupe was originally believed to feature a "GT" badge, but Lexus eventually went with Track Edition. Despite the name that suggests a special-edition model, the Track Edition is a proper upgrade that sets it apart from the standard RC F. Let’s find out more about it below.
The 2020 Cadillac XT6 Is What Caddy Needs, But Is It Too Late?
Big, luxurious SUVs and crossovers are as popular as ever these days, and the latest Cadillac XT6 looks like a solid fit for customer demands. However, there are still lingering questions that have us wondering if Cadillac is struggling to keep up with the times.
The 2020 BMW 7 Series Is A Bavarian Tech Fest
Cadillac Proves Performance Sedans Aren’t Dead as the 2019 CT6-V Sells Out in a Few Hours
Sedans may not be as hot as they once were, but don’t tell that to the Cadillac CT6-V. The high-performance variant of the upscale CT6 sedan sold out within hours of opening the books for preorders, proving that, at least in some cases, the demise of sedans isn’t as bad as we think it is. Cadillac opened preorders for the CT6-V on the morning of January 14. By 2:30 P.M., all 275 units that were earmarked for the U.S. market were scooped up, leaving those who didn’t act quickly enough empty-handed. The Cadillac CT6-V is expected to arrive sometime in the middle of the year at a price that starts at $89,785. Not that it matters because if you didn’t get one, it’s highly unlikely that Cadillac is going to launch a second wave of models anytime soon.
The 2020 BMW 7 Series Intelligent Personal Assistant Is Equal Parts Creepy and Cool
As my wife will be quick to tell you, I can occasionally get a little paranoid when it comes to modern digital technology. I don’t like being tracked. I don’t like how cameras are everywhere and always turned on. I don’t like anything that even carries a whiff of 1984. As such, the Intelligent Personal Assistant in the new 2020 BMW 7 Series makes me nervous. However, at the same time, the geek in me thinks it’s pretty damn cool.
BMW Should Offer Some Of Its Cars with Different Grille Size Options
Iconic and instantly recognizable as the BMW kidney grille may be, it has been growing and growing with recent models to the point where now it’s become too big on some models - yes, I’m looking at you, facelifted 7-Series sedan. But the refreshed 7-Series is not the only culprit here, because the new X7 is too, as well as the new X5 to a lesser degree.
There’s More to the 2020 BMW 7 Series Than that Massive Grille
The facelifted 2020 BMW 7 Series appeared only hours after the most impressive debut of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show concluded. It is a considerably redesigned model, regardless of the fact that everyone’s talking only about its massive front grille. There is so much more to it than that.
Revealed on June 10, 2015, at BMW’s headquarters in Munich, the latest 7 Series was rather nice but never did achieve the stature of the S-Class. I may even go that far to say that no 7 Series ever did so. Now, three and a half years after the introduction of the 7 Series G11, BMW replenished it with new modern, and somewhat controversial design cues, new technology, and a new V-8 engine. That one was taken straight from the BMW M850i Sports Coupe.
The Munich-based company definitely dispensed with the subtle and conventional. Finally, we have a 7 Series that boasts perplexing, if not even esoteric, design.

The Cadillac XT6 is a Ground-Rule Double That Should’ve Been a Home Run
Cadillac filled a big void in its SUV lineup at the 2019 North American International Auto Show, unveiling the three-row XT6 to occupy the space between the mid-size, two-row XT5 and the company’s granddaddy SUV, the irrepressible Escalade. The addition of the XT6 gives Cadillac four crossovers and SUVs to choose from, establishing a clear hierarchy for consumers. The XT6, for all intents and purposes, is Cadillac’s luxury-SUV-that-isn’t-the-Escalade. It’s big, looks good, and offers the kind of three-row space families fawn over when they’re looking for a spacious ride. Cadillac’s price for the XT6 remains an open question, but by virtue of the XT6 sitting between the XT5 and the Escalade, expect Caddy’s new big rig to start somewhere in the vicinity of $50,000.
2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Mercedes GLA-Class
Land Rover first introduced the Range Rover Evoque in 2011. A few years later, Mercedes-Benz revealed the GLA-Class in 2013. Both offer subcompact crossover practicality wrapped in a luxurious, high-end package. Both seat five passengers, and both come with a long list of options and features to help them stand out in a crowd. But the question remains - which is best? To find out, we dove headfirst into the spec sheets and put together the following comparison article.

There’s a Bentley Bentayga Speed in the Works and It’s Going to be Lambortastic
Volkswagen has done this before as well, and it is doing it again. This time, the automaker is pitting two of its most esteemed marques against each other. Bentley is working on the Bentayga Speed, and it might be just as powerful as the Lamborghini Urus. Won’t this hurt Lamborghini’s sales? Maybe, but if you look at it from the bigger picture, it is the VW group at the end of the day that’s benefiting.
2020 Audi SQ7
The current-generation Audi SQ7 was only unveiled last year, but it didn’t take Audi long to start developing an updated version of the punchy SUV. That appears to be the case as new spy photos of an SQ7 test mule have been spotted in the wild. The prototype appeared in the wild with another test vehicle — likely the Q7 — in what can only be described as the latest evidence that Audi isn’t sitting on its laurels when it comes to giving its two performance SUVs the necessary updates that’ll keep it fresh in the eyes of consumers.
Update 01/10/2019: The 2020 Audi SQ7 is being put through pre-production, cold-weather testing and is probably in the final stages of testing. A debut should be coming in the next few months, but until then, we have a fresh batch of spy shots located in the gallery at the bottom of this article. Enjoy!
2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport
Land Rover is already working on a next-generation Discovery Sport, but with the model still a few years away from arriving, a facelifted version of the current Discovery Sport is making test rounds. The prototype is wrapped in heavy camouflage, but the overall shape of the SUV suggests that there could be a lot of changes made to the updated Discovery Sport ahead of the next-generation model’s arrival in a few years.

7 Impressive Facts About the 2020 Mercedes CLA
After a rather cheesy debut of the new 2020 Mercedes CLA at the CES in Las Vegas that included a cringy discussion between a talking EQ C and a talking CLA, we finally got an opportunity to see the complete car. It is a big deal for Mercedes-Benz who managed to sell 750,000 units of the CLA since its introduction in 2013. With its debut at the 2019 CES, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA displayed the latest electric technology and a very convincing voice interface.
Regardless of the fact that we haven’t seen any major drivetrain changes or any other dramatic improvements over the first generation car, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA did bring a few cool tech leaps you have to know about.
