A Hotter Version of The Genesis G70 Sounds Spicy, Doesn't It?

A Hotter Version of The Genesis G70 Sounds Spicy, Doesn’t It?

Rumors are building that Hyundai’s cooking up quite a surprise for its new premium brand

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 2019 Ford Mondeo Has Arrived In Belgium and it Brought Along a New First For the Blue Oval

This happens to be the Blue Oval’s first hybrid-wagon offering

Ford has unveiled the refreshed Mondeo at the 2019 Brussels Motor Show in Belgium. The Mondeo was looking stale for quite some time now and needed a refresh desperately. However, it did not come alone. It brought along the company’s first-ever hybrid wagon and, from our initial impressions, we would call this hybrid-wagon a masterstroke!

Tesla Shares Plummet Despite Record-Breaking Production

Tesla Shares Plummet Despite Record-Breaking Production

Is this an opportunity for Rivian to dethrone Musk’s company?

Tesla announced a record-breaking number of deliveries in the Q4 of 2018, but that did not reflect in its financial reports. Tesla delivered 90,700 vehicles from September to December - a new record since its inception, but the share prices took a hit. The shareholders felt a certain unsteadiness as stock prices declined and investors expressed their disappointment over failed expectations to close out the year. That is harsh on Tesla.

Here's How a Simple Security Oversight Brings Hell To 2019 Tesla Model 3 Owners

Here’s How a Simple Security Oversight Brings Hell To 2019 Tesla Model 3 Owners

Tesla seriously needs to do something to address this, and it needs to do it as soon as possible

Tesla owners, specifically those who own the Model 3, have become the targets of a growing number of car break-ins in recent weeks. A number of owners took to forums and social media to report the thefts, a lot of which have happened in the Bay Area. The incidents reportedly involve thieves breaking the rear-quarter window of the Model 3 to lower the seat and see if there are any valuable items in the trunk. If the thieves see something, they break the whole back side window, get in the car, and steal the items. Unfortunately, the Model 3 doesn’t have a sensor to detect that a window has been broken, giving the thieves free run to shatter windows and steal to their heart’s content. For its part, Tesla has started offering and installing a new Enhanced Anti-Theft system that would help prevent these types of break-ins. Unfortunately, the system is only available for the Model S and Model X at the moment.

Engineering Explained: How Subaru Made the S209 Engine That Much Better

This powerplant is ancient, but it’s looking damn tasty in the S209!

Import fans with a fondness for rally-bred speed got quite the treat this week, as Subaru revealed its fastest, best handling, hardest braking STI ever - the S209. This thing is purpose-built from the factory for maximum performance thrills and comes with a long list of upgrades that includes new stuff in the power department. Engineering Explained goes under the hood scoop to figure out exactly what makes this boxer rumble.

The 2020 BMW 7 Series Is A Bavarian Tech Fest

This is where you gotta look for BMW’s gadget-laden future

The 2020 BMW 7 Series is now official, and as expected, it’s bringing some serious technological artillery to bear. Here are the most important features to pay attention to, as they may be headed to the rest of Bimmer’s lineup before you know it.

Cadillac Proves Performance Sedans Aren't Dead as the 2019 CT6-V Sells Out in a Few Hours

Cadillac Proves Performance Sedans Aren’t Dead as the 2019 CT6-V Sells Out in a Few Hours

Perhaps the sedan’s 550-horsepower V-8 engine had something to do with it

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

The 2020 BMW 7 Series Intelligent Personal Assistant Is Equal Parts Creepy and Cool

You forgot to use your turn signal again, Dave

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.

Pricing for the 2019 Mercedes A-Class is In and The CLA-Class is No Longer the Cheapest Merc on U.S. Roads

Pricing for the 2019 Mercedes A-Class is In and The CLA-Class is No Longer the Cheapest Merc on U.S. Roads

The new 2019 Mercedes-Benz A220 Sedan Is Fairly Well Equipped From The Get Go

Mercedes-Benz revealed the entry-level price for the new A-Class Sedan. You will be able to get it for $32,500. Go for the 4Matic and be prepared to churn out two grand more at $34,500. This is considerably more compared to the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLA - the entry-level Mercedes-Benz in the U.S. at the time. That one managed to slip just under the $30,000 mark and was the only Mercedes-Benz to achieve so.

Long gone are those days. While the A-Class Sedan isn’t as special as the CLA, the new car definitely has some merit in the world. And, while $32,500 does not sound that bad for a new Mercedes, this price does not include the destination charge (so, add a grand on top of it) and don’t even imagine having access to all the amazing Mercedes-Benz tech found in higher-end models.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - 2020 Volkswagen Passat

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - 2020 Volkswagen Passat

Is it worth investing 30,000 bucks in an old car with a botox treatment?

This car is nothing short of a legend, and when it goes down, it will be remembered as one of the longest running and the most successful sedans to have graced the Earth. Sounds like a tribute, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because the 2020 Volkswagen Passat may very well represent the last time the German company invests its time, money and resources into this car. The 2020 Volkswagen Passat was displayed at the Detroit Auto Show and, even though it is a very good package overall, we might give it a miss in favor of say, a crossover.

Nevertheless, here is a list of the things that work in the 2020 Passat’s favor, and some things that don’t:

BMW Should Offer Some Of Its Cars with Different Grille Size Options

BMW Should Offer Some Of Its Cars with Different Grille Size Options

Not everybody is into huge grilles, you know

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

There’s More to the 2020 BMW 7 Series Than that Massive Grille

The 2020 BMW 7 Series is refreshed in luxury and performance

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 2019 WRX STI S209 Is the Best Performance News From Subaru In a Long Time

The 2019 WRX STI S209 Is the Best Performance News From Subaru In a Long Time

You asked for it, you got it - say hello to the Six Stars’ latest big ‘n bad performance monster

Ever since Subaru offloaded the first WRX onto U.S. shores back in the early 2000’s, the brand has slowly but steadily built its performance cred among stateside buyers. Between stints in rally racing, road racing, and time attack, this turbocharged icon has achieved legendary status and is now a torchbearer for Japanese go-fast machinery. Thing is, Subaru’s success has lead to, for lack of a better word, stagnation. Luckily, the 2019 WRX STI S209 changes that in a very good way.
