The Subaru Legacy Evolves for 2023 with New Tech and a Fresh Face
With the SUV revolution, budget sedans are becoming rare and old. But, Subaru has kept the Legacy sedan alive by updating it for the 2023 model year. The updates include an aggressive front fascia, an updated driver assistance system called EyeSight, an updated infotainment system, and a turbocharged engine for the Sport trim. The updates were very important since it competes with well-known rivals such as the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata.
Alfa Romeo Alfetta May Return As a Mid-Size Sedan, Sometime Between 2022 And 2026
The long-needed “good marriage” of Alfa Romeo is finally a fact. While the brand was in a rather rough spot, despite churning out a series of great models – the 4C, Giulia, and Stelvio – being under the banner of Stellantis is certainly opening new possibilities. By new possibilities, we mean new models, and, according to a 2021 article from Alfisticrew.com, Alfa Romeo may be working on another rear-wheel-drive, sports luxury sedan, and it may happen sometime between 2022 and 2026.
Say Hello to The Tesla ’Model T’, The Most Ridiculous Model 3 You’ll Ever See
Almost anything with Tesla stamped on it is hot these days, and the EV auto giant’s sedan, the Model 3 is no exception. But, you know what’s even hotter? Well, a Model 3 with Tank tracks of course, which is exactly what The Real Life Guys from Germany has done.
Clearly, these folks are into the category of doing some pretty crazy stuff on their channel, I mean they’ve done everything from putting together a homemade submarine to a bathtub with a rocket. This Model 3 with tank tracks follows that same theme.
2023 Polestar 2 Specs, Pricing, and Complete Buyer’s Guide
The Polestar 2 has been with us for quite a while now, and over the years, the Swedish EV brand has been giving it incremental updates. For 2023, however, the updates are much more pronounced, especially under the skin, though it’s not significant enough to be considered a mid-cycle facelift. Due to these updates, the Polestar 2 has been given a price increase across the range. The Polestar 2 Single Motor now starts at $48,400 (+$2,500), while the Dual Motor version now starts at $51,900 (+$700). These prices do not yet consider the $7,500 federal tax credit and $1,400 destination fee.
Dyno-testing a 2010 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor Proves You Could Have Outran The Cops With Ease!
The Ford Crown Victoria is one of the most memorable American cars from the 1990s, but not for the right reasons. While the car wasn’t quick or handled particularly well, it was the car of choice for Police and Highway Patrol services. If you are someone who loves stepping on it, you’ve probably dreaded the image of one of these in your rearview mirror. However, a recent dyno tests done by ’Late Model Restorations’, reveal that a 2010 Crown Vic Interceptor is no reason to get your panties in a twist.
2023 Audi S6 and S7 Design Edition
Audi announced updates for its entire 2023 lineup, and the S6 and the S7 sedans are no exception. While no major exterior or interior updates will be offered, both models can now be ordered with an exclusive Design Edition package. It is only about some cool exterior and interior color combination, and it does make both sedans look better than ever.
The new Design Edition package will be offered exclusively for the 2023 model year and can be ordered starting June.
An All-Korean Drag Race: Can The Hyundai Elantra N DCT Give The Kia Stinger GT A Run For Its Money?
Korean carmakers have been churning out exciting performance vehicles for a while and Sam CarLegion, recently staged a race between two of the hottest performance models from Hyundai and Kia. The cars in question are the updated Kia Stinger GT and the new Hyundai Elantra N. Both cars pack a surprising amount of performance and practicality, but which one should you go for?
2022 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 "Edition 55"
Mercedes marks AMG’s 55th birthday with the launch of a series of "Edition 55" special editions. After the release of the AMG A 35 "Edition 55" and the G 63 "Edition 55", the company has now announced the CLA 45 "Edition 55."
The model is available to order now until December 2022, and the equipment package will be priced from €12,614 for the S versions and from €14,280 for the base CLA 45.
2022 Lexus IS
The Lexus IS brings a lot of excitement for the 2022 model year, but that does not mean it was never exciting. Lexus was intelligent enough to give it a facelift for the 2021 model year, ensuring that the lack of a new generation has no bearing on sales. The IS was always a daily-driver kind of sports sedan, which offered both, comfort and decent performance. But, rivals like the 3 Series, the C-Class, and the A4, are more dynamic on the road when compared to the IS. Surely you would love to take the IS on the highways, but what if you wanted to take it to the track? For the 2022 model year, Lexus has started rolling out the more performance-focused IS500 F Sport Performance models. These models are not only powered by a throatier 5.0-liter V-8 but also come with an adaptive sport suspension, quad-exhaust tips, and upgraded brakes. As for the standard IS300, there are still two engine options, one is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot, and the other one is the underpowered 3.5-liter V-6 which also powers the IS350 F Sport, but is rated at 311 horsepower. It is a bit confusing about the whole IS, but we will try to simplify them in the latter part of the review. Apart from performance, Lexus cars are more about luxury and exquisite craftsmanship, which we witness with every line-up. Do all of these make Lexus a more approachable brand? Is the Lexus IS the best buy for you?
2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Night Edition
Mercedes-Benz is not the only automaker out there to offer a Night Edition package. In fact, this has been quite a popular name among the special editions lately. For example, Hyundai is offering a Sonata N Line Night Edition, while Ram added the same name to its 1500 and Heavy Duty models.
However, the name has the longest history in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. It has even been offered for models like the Maybach S 650. But, the latest addition is for the E-Class lineup, including coupe, cabrio, sedan, and station wagon, with the exception of the AMG models.
The Taycan’s Interior Seems To Be Trickling Down To The Porsche Panamera
It was just earlier last month that we said that the Panamera will say goodbye to combustion engines for good. But, Porsche’s sports sedan will be around and co-exit with the Taycan, one last time. These latest spy shots of the 2024 Panamera though are all about the interior and how they overlap with its EV sibling.
Is The BMW i4 Worthy Enough To Be The Tesla Model 3 Killer?
In his latest video, Doug DeMuro got to check out the new BMW i4 M50, which is supposedly the Bavarian automaker’s all-electric take on the 4 Series Gran Coupe. As with any Doug video, this is an in-depth tour of the first-ever all-electric BMW to be given the full M treatment. Granted this is an M Sport model rather than an out and out M, but with 536 horsepower on tap, I don’t see anyone complaining.
It’s no surprise that with that the i4 M50 is aimed squarely at the Tesla Model 3 Performance. The Polestar 2 was yet another noteworthy model that also goes up against the Tesla. Coming back to how the i4 stacks up against the Model 3 (457 horsepower), while it is more powerful as opposed to the Tesla, the Model 3 has a considerably longer range at 315 miles as opposed to the BMW’s 270 miles.
2022 BMW M3 Competition - Driving Impressions
The BMW 3 Series is widely regarded as the poster child of what a compact luxury sedan is supposed to be. The M3 Competition, on the other hand, serves as a firm representation of what a compact performance saloon should be. The range of sheer precision and performance between a base 3 Series and the M3 Competition is so wide that the two couldn’t feel more different from a driver’s perspective. With just over 500 horsepower on tap, is the M3 Competition really suitable as a daily road car, though? I spent a week with it to find out, and let’s just say that there’s more to the M3 than the grille.
The Latest BMW i5 Prototype Finally Features Production Headlights
With both the i4 and the i7 revealed, BMW will focus its attention on developing the next i5. Prototypes of the electric version of the 5 Series were spotted out in the wild for quite some time now, but the latest ones reveal a few more details.
Since the development of the next i5 continues, the new prototypes received the production headlights for the first time.
LiDAR Will Play A Key Role In The Future Of Driverless Cars
A couple of weeks ago, the 2023 BMW 7 Series along with an all-electric variant dubbed the i7, broke cover for the 2023 model year. Now, the Bavarian automaker’s flagship sedan is significant for the U.S. market, in that it is the very first vehicle to pack the hardware that supports Level 3 autonomous driving, set to be rolled out next year.
To learn more about this state-of-the-art autonomous driving technology, I recently got the chance to catch up with the Co-founder and CEO of Innoviz Technologies, Omer Keilaf, based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The Four-door Nissan GT-R Sounds Cringe, But It Actually Makes Sense
Nissan is in an interesting place. It gave us the first new Z in 14 years and its newly introduced Ariya is the brand’s first EV crossover. While both models have been delayed due to supply chain problems, there is another interesting development. It concerns the Nissan GT-R and the possibility of a four-door version, which may also be an EV. If what we hear is true, this could mean that the R36 generation will come in, at least, two flavors. Is Nissan planning to compete with the Porsche Taycan and Tesla Model S Plaid?
2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S Brabus 800
When you think of high-end aftermarket companies, some of the top names that come to mind include Hennessey, Mansory, and Brabus. While Hennessey is known for outright performance builds and Mansory for the most radical and unusual mods, Brabus is a blend of the two. It is back with yet another Mercedes build, this time, for the AMG E63 S called the Brabus 800. New wheels and aerodynamic elements on the outside, plush treatment on the inside, and power enhancement to the existing V-8 make this Brabus build an absolute beast.
Here’s Doug DeMuro’s Take On What Could Likely Be The Very Last Audi S8
Doug DeMuro featured the refreshed Audi S8 in his latest video. As with any of his reviews, he dwells deeper than your typical run-of-the-mill review, going over the quirks and features of the latest S8. The A8/S8 lineup has always been the underdog and the least popular of the flagship German limousines, with its chief rivals being the Mercedes Benz S Class and the BMW 7 Series. It has often been criticized for looking too much like a scaled-up Audi A4 or A6.
Having said that, there is still a lot to like about the S8, especially when you consider that this latest model is about $15k cheaper than the outgoing model. The S8 is also ideal if you prefer to fly under the radar and the understated styling sure does come into play here. Find out why Doug thinks this might very well be the very last Audi S8 in his video below.
The 2023 Genesis G90 Swaps The V-8 In Favor Of A Tri-charged V-6
Hyundai’s luxury arm, Genesis, became its own brand in 2015 and it’s already making some pretty big changes. Aside from making a quick transition to electricity, Genesis is “re-arming” its flagship luxury sedan – the G90 – by introducing a completely new, “Frankenstein” engine option.
Prices Revealed: Owning A 2023 Acura Integra Will Cost You At Least $30,800
After an absence of more than 20 years, the Acura Integra made its comeback on the market for the 2023 model year. After being announced in early 2022, the Integra will arrive at dealerships in early June. The model will be offered in standard or A-spec versions, with a Technology Package offered as an option. Both CVT and manual transmissions will be offered.
2022 Jaguar XE and XF 300 Sport
Starting 2025, Jaguar will stop offering ICE-powered cars, but that’s still three years away, so there is a little bit of time left to enjoy the current line-up. For example, in Europe, the customers have just received a new 300 Sport version for both, the XE and XF sedans.
As the name suggests, the two models will be offered with a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine from the Ingenium family that delivers 300 PS (296 HP), but the biggest news is the introduction of Alexa voice control and what3words integration.
Tesla Model S - Twitter Edition??
With Elon Musk’s $44 billion take over of Twitter, I wonder what’s in store next for the likes of Tesla. Is a limited-run Twitter Edition Tesla Model S a possibility? Well, digital artist musartwork has rendered a Model S clad in Twitter blue sitting low on white Rotiform rims. Will such a car have Twitter integrated into the Model S’ infotainment system or a dedicated Tweet button on the Yoke? I don’t know that, this is pure speculation. But never say never. This is Elon Musk we’re talking about here. The sky is pretty much the limit.
The Mercedes-AMG C43 Proves Four-Cylinders Are Better….Again
The 2022 Mercedes C-Class may have brought some S-Class tech to the middle class, but it also brought some significant change under the hood. The entire C-Class lineup, AMG models included, will only be offered with four-cylinder engines. In short, Mercedes is making good use of its somewhat outrageous M139 inline-four, the same one that manages to produce 381 horsepower in the AMG A45 and 416 horsepower in the AMG A45 S. Now, Mercedes has revealed the new AMG C43, and like the rest of the C-Class it features another version of the M139, this time tuned to just a hair over 400 ponies, and that’s for the base C43
