2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 - Driven

2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Z51 - Driven

Chevy’s resident supercar squares off with more expensive models - does it stand a chance?

Chevy quite literally redefined what the Corvette name means when it unveiled the all-new, mid-engined C8 Corvette – a model that was decades in the making. Finally bringing the mid-engine configuration to the Corvette was no easy undertaking, but in the end, the new Corvette looked like a supercar, performed like a high-end sportscar, and created quite a stir in the automotive community thanks to its attractive low price. It seems impossible that a car like the C8 Corvette could retail for less than $60,000, but as promised it does ($59,995 as of the time of this writing). This makes the C8 Corvette come off as a much-cheaper alternative to many exotic cars, so how does it hold up? We spent a week with the 2021 C8 Corvette 3LT with the Z51 performance package to find out.

2021 Cadillac XT6 - Driven

2021 Cadillac XT6 - Driven

The XT6 checks almost all the boxes, but it lacks the pizzazz that its German rivals offer

The Cadillac XT6 is a fairly new kid on the block. It is a full-fledged three-row SUV that comes with a smart exterior, a host of features inside the cabin, and two different engine options to choose from. For the 2021 model year, the company has introduced a new base trim with a four-cylinder engine option.

The higher trims, however, come with the big V-6 that is neither fuel-efficient nor too powerful. Even on paper, it doesn’t feel as accomplished as the BMW X5 and the Audi Q7. The XT6 doesn’t feel like a threat to its German counterparts, but it’s still an all-rounded SUV that offers a lot of bang for the buck. Can Cadillac make the XT6 a threatening proposition in the coming years?

2021 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing

Cadillac supercharges the CT5-V to take on the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63

The 2021 Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing is an upcoming, high-performance version of the company’s midsize sedan. Set to become the range-topping version of the current CT5, the Blackwing will slot above the CT5-V.

The BMW X2 Is Getting Bigger, Will Share DNA With the iX2 EV

The BMW X2 Is Getting Bigger, Will Share DNA With the iX2 EV

It will feature fresh design cues, whereas the iX2 could be the rival that Tesla Model Y needs

The X2 was introduced in 2018 and is the youngest of the German SUV lot. It was introduced to fill the vacuum between the X1 and the X3. Given how the market is shrinking and automakers are trying to capitalize on every possible opportunity, the X2 made sense. In its essence, it came in a package slightly smaller than the X3 but with more features and better specs than the X1. However, according to Autobild.de, BMW is giving the X2 bigger dimensions for the 2023 model. Do we really need it?

2021 NIO ET7 EV

This Tesla Model S-rivalling sedan looks stunning, is feature-rich, and offers 621 miles of range!

In the first quarter of 2020, Chinese EV automaker Nio had almost gotten knocked out of the auto scene. But, thanks to an investment of $1 billion from the local government, Nio managed to get a second lease on life. It revealed the updated version of its electric, the ES8, and there’s no looking back ever since. Nio is growing leaps and bounds and the launch of its latest EV is a testimony to that.

Since When Are Big Screens a Mark of Luxury in Cars?

Since When Are Big Screens a Mark of Luxury in Cars?

Car luxury today isn’t the same as car luxury a decade or two ago

The leaps forward taken by technology in the past decade have brought us closer, literally, to screens. You’ve got one in your living room, one in your pocket, one on your desk, and most likely, you’ve got one inside your car, too. Almost every daily activity of the modern man - from work, to shopping, and then on to entertainment - involves a screen of sorts, be it from a smartphone, a TV, or a car’s infotainment system.

In recent years, the later has become a norm in almost every new car out there. Higher-echelon car brands in particular have been very eager to fit their cars with screens, especially of the larger, wide, or curbed variety. So we can only ask: are these big displays bleeding with top-notch graphics a mark of luxury in the automotive world?
