2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S - Driven

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S - Driven

The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S comes with a 600+ Horsepower V-8 engine, intimidating looks, and loads of features inside the cabin

Coupe versions of SUVs have been quite a hit in the U.S. in the recent years. Automakers are coming up with the sloping roofline versions of the mid-size and full-size SUVs and they are selling pretty well. Such is the demand that you can now have them even in the sportiest and the most luxurious avatar. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S is a strong example of the same. It comes with a V-8 mill that puts out over 600 horsepower, is luxurious on the inside, and is loaded to the gills in terms of features. It faces stiff competition from the likes of the BMW X6 M and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo – is it any better than its German counterparts?

2021 Audi A8 L Horch

2021 Audi A8 L Horch

A China-only luxury sedan that is born to rival the Maybach.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

If your heart says S-Class but your pocket says no, then the E-Class would be perfect for you.

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

2022 Lexus LC 500

Lexus’ best of luxury and performance got more nimble and is open to bespoke customizations.

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.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door - Driven

2021 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door - Driven

Is the AMG GT 4-Door just a Mercedes CLS on Steroids or is it a true, four-door sports car?

Five years into its lifecycle, and the AMG GT sports car has grown into its own dedicated lineup that includes a convertible and the car you see here – a sedan that Mercedes markets as a four-door… ahem… 4-door coupe. This specific model blends the sporty essence of the coupe with the comfort, practicality, and family friendliness of a traditional sedan. We got to spend an entire week with the AMG GT53 – the middleman between the new GT43 and the GT63 (and GT63 S) to see just what it’s like to live with the sportiest four-door car Mercedes makes.

2021 Pogea Lorenzo CLS63S 4M

2021 Pogea Lorenzo CLS63S 4M

742 horsepower and a unique interior is what the CLS 63S needed as a last hooray!

Mercedes’ need to electrify its entire lineup killed a lot of cool cars, including the CLS 63 S AMG Shooting Brake. Eduard Pogea of Pogea Racing wanted to give special attention to this car and created his own project based on the CLS 63S. The car was built especially for him, so do not expect to see this package available for order.

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

2022 Audi RS6-S by ABT

Not as powerful as the previous Johann Abt Signature Edition, but still a lot of power for a station wagon

In June 2021 ABT was presenting the ‘Johann Abt Signature Edition’” - a model based on the Audi RS6 Avant built to commemorate the company’s 125th anniversary. It was limited to only 64 units, and, because of its 790 horsepower under the hood, it enjoyed huge success. Actually, it was sold out in no time.

At the customers’ request, ABT is offering a successor for it: the RS6-S. The new model was launched at the same time as the RSQ8-S and will be available starting January 2022.

2023 BMW X1 M35i

2023 BMW X1 M35i

It will get a more powerful engine and a sportier look, but will it actually replace an M car?

The current generation X1 was launched back in 2015 and there’s no secret that it was never a very successful car. No wonder that BMW is preparing big updates for the next model set to arrive in 2022. In a recent press release, the company confirmed that the next X1 will be offered with "both a combustion engine and a fully-electric drivetrain."

The model will also receive the same treatment as the recently launched 1-Series and 2-Series: An X1 M35i version that will pretty much replace the usual M version you get with cars like the X3 and the X4.

2022 Maserati Levante

2022 Maserati Levante

The Italian fury you would not want to mess with.

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 Audi RSQ8-S by ABT

2022 Audi RSQ8-S by ABT

With 740 horsepower under the hood, the RSQ8-R is a lot more powerful than the Urus!

Back in 2020, ABT announced the RSQ8-R - a package based on the Audi RS Q8 that increased the power up to a total of 700 horsepower. Of course, the car was sold in no time and customers asked for a replacement. Their wishes will come true as, in January 2022, ABT will be offering a new package for the Q8 RS: the new RSQ8-S.

2021 G-Power G4M Bi-Turbo and G3M Bi-Turbo

2021 G-Power G4M Bi-Turbo and G3M Bi-Turbo

700 horsepower and a top speed of 207 mph move the BMW M3 into the supercar territory

G-Power is famous for its upgrade kits for the BMW models. As it was to be expected, the new BMW M3 and the M4 with their striking kidney grilles caught the tuner’s attention too and they both received some serious power boost. Both packages - called G3M and G4M - will be available for order starting December 2021.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB35 - Driven

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLB35 - Driven

The Mercedes-AMG GLB35 is fun to drive, but for the price, there might be other alternatives

The Mercedes-Benz GLB, in general, is a weirdly positioned vehicle that seems derived from nothing more than Mercedes’ desire to populate every single corner of a segment possible. It sits between the GLA and GLC, which makes it not quite small enough to be declared a subcompact, but not exactly large enough to sit in the compact segment, either. It is a comfortable vehicle, has a rugged look and feel to it, and it can even be had with a third-row seat – something essentially unheard of in this segment (and largely unusable). We’re comparing it to the BMW X3 and Audi SQ5, which might seem a little silly at first, but you’ll understand as we dig deeper into it. This is what it’s like to live the Mercedes-AMG GLB 35, and why it may or may not be for you.

2022 Maserati Ghibli

2022 Maserati Ghibli

Italy’s answer to the E-Class and the 5 Series with blazing-fast performance and a meticulously crafted cabin

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?

2021 Ferrari Roma By Novitec

2021 Ferrari Roma By Novitec

Novitec adds an extra 72 horsepower and improves the exterior look of the Roma

Ferrari Roma is a front-engined, 2+2 grand tourer that came to attack on cars like Aston Martin DB11. For a Ferrari priced a little over $220k it had enough power and looks to actually put competition in real trouble. As it was to be expected, the car caught Novitec’s attention who decided there is room for more power under the hood.

2022 Lexus LS 500

2022 Lexus LS 500

A Japanese luxury limousine ready to stand side-by-side with the S-Class.

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 Brabus 800 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic

2021 Brabus 800 Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 4Matic

An extra 250 horsepower and an updated look really transform the Maybach GLS 600 4Matic

Mercedes unveiled the Maybach GLS 600 4MATIC almost two years ago, and it is an SUV that pretty much needs no improvement. It comes with 550 horsepower under the hood, a luxurious interior, and an exterior look that will make most of the luxury SUVs out there jealous.

Brabus however thinks the Maybach GLS can be improved even further, so it came up with the Brabus 800 package that will transform the Maybach GLS in all aspects: exterior, interior, and performance.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

A well-rounded German SUV that is yet to receive generational upgrades but isn’t falling off the line either.

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?
