2022 Acura MDX Type S - Performance, Price and Photos
The MDX made a comeback for 2022, in the form of an entirely new fourth-generation Acura model. Subsequently, the Japanese automaker chose to introduce a new Type-S iteration of the MDX and it now sits at the top of the Acura range. This is in fact the very first time that an Acura SUV wears the Type S badge. It is a three-row SUV that targets the enthusiast crowd who also demand luxury and comfort in addition to performance.
Compared to a standard MDX, Acura’s new torque-vectoring with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and adaptive air suspension on the MDX Type-S will give you the confidence you need to take sharp turns with ease. Beyond how it drives though, the MDX Type S has other qualities like a cosseting interior with all the top-level equipment and the build quality, that you would come to expect from a premium three-row SUV. Here’s how Acura’s first-ever performance SUV fares.
2023 Porsche Taycan GTS Sport Turismo - Performance, Price and Photos
Porsche made its foray into the world of mainstream electric cars with the Taycan sedan a couple of years ago and the model line-up has evolved quite a bit since then. They introduced a base model with a rear-wheel-drive variant and then went on to add some practical wagons in the form of the Sport Turismo and Cross-Turismo. Currently, you can choose from 14 different configurations of the Taycan.
While the Cross Turismo went on sale a while back, Porsche decided to expand the Taycan range with the GTS line, which broke cover at the L.A. Auto Show in November last year. This wagon ditches the body cladding and combines the practicality of the Taycan Cross Turismo with the driving capabilities of the standard Porsche Taycan. Also, a Porsche spokesperson confirmed to CarAndDriver that the Taycan Sport Turismo is currently only coming in GTS guise to the U.S. market.

The line includes a trio of sub-models, the Multistrada V4, V4 S, and V4 S Sport.

2022 Triumph Speed Twin - Performance, Price, and Photos
Triumph expanded its “Modern Classics” lineup ahead of MY2019 with the new-in-’19 Speed Twin as a tribute piece paying visual homage with all the modern-ness you’d expect tucked away under the hood and out of sight. The result is a clean-looking classic with gobs of retro appeal, and that’s an important detail because the newest generation of riders has shown themselves to have an interest in the old-school looks, much to their credit.
2022 Indian Springfield - Performance, Price, and Photos
Indian Motorcycle cashes in on its deep design roots with the Springfield model that hit the market in ’16 and carries over to the 2022 model year with nary but a few adjustments to the color palette. Power comes from what was Indian’s largest production engine prior to 2020, along with ABS and keyless ignition on board, but it’s the classic, old-school bagger looks that drive sales of this particular unit. Best of all, it’s among the least expensive of the available baggers, and that positions it well within the boulevard-bruiser/light-tour categories.
2022 Yamaha MT-03 - Performance, Price, and Photos
Yamaha expands its MT lineup with an all-new-in-2022, entry-level model, the MT-03. Previously available in other markets, it joins the MT-07, -09, and -10 within Yamaha’s hyper-naked range it touts as the “Dark Side of Japan.” The MT-03 toes the family line with minimalist appointments that waste not an ounce on superfluous details. Power delivery is both smooth and predictable to reinforce its rider-friendly nature. ABS protection provides an extra safety net to help make sure you keep it rubber side down.
10 Best RC Cars in 2022
We are in a day and age where kids prefer playing on their phones or tables instead of playing outside. While pushing some of them to play sports might be a task, there can be something else that might lure them into leaving their devices – Remote Control Cars. These are the best things to get kids to step outside and have a little fun. But, RC cars aren’t just for kids. Even grown-ups can have a lot of fun with them, and that’s because these aren’t mere toys. RC Cars these days are available in all shapes, sizes, and price bands. Some even require a certain level of skill to operate. So, with that said, here’s a list of the 10 best RC cars that you can buy in 2022.
Top 10 Cruisers To Buy Under $15,000 in 2022
The cruiser is America’s motorcycle: the open road, arms, and legs splayed out in front of you, riding towards the horizon on a wave of torque and a V-twin rumble. Big and heavy, they are designed to eat up the miles in the most comfort. But they’re not just a means of transport: they are a statement, endlessly customizable to the owner’s personal taste. Is it any wonder that Harley Davidson’s after-market accessory catalog is so thick or that a whole industry has been built out of manufacturing bolt-on goodies for cruisers.
The only slight shadow over the cruiser scene is the cost. Or is it? Yes, you can easily spend $30,000+ on some of the top-of-the-range Harleys and Indians which put them out of reach of many, no matter how much they like them. However, if your budget is a more modest $15,000, there is still a great choice of models to choose from.
This list of cruisers under $15,000 could probably be filled solely with Harley-Davidsons, so comprehensive is the range. However, in the interests of variety, we’ve chosen our top 10 from a range of manufacturers, with something to suit every pocket.
2022 BMW S 1000 XR - Performance, Price, and Photos
Bayerische Motoren Werke gave the S 1000 XR from its Adventure Sport segment a serious rebuild ahead of MY2020 that includes a number of improvements over the previous gen.

2023 Mercedes-AMG SL - Performance, Price and Photos
The Mercedes SL (Sport Licht), which translates to Sport Light in German, is a car that set the benchmark for sport and luxury for nearly seven decades. The 300 SL name has its weight in gold and the latest Mercedes SL (the first one in nearly a decade) is the direct descendent of the SL Roadster from the early 1950s.
The 2023 Mercedes SL Roadster is a new car from the ground up and it essentially replaces the S-Class Cabriolet and the AMG GT Roadster. The folks from Affalterbach have worked extensively on the SL to transform it from a boulevard cruiser to a genuine open-top sports car, reminiscent of the original. Gone is the foldable hardtop roof and in comes a canvas soft top. Also, AMG is calling the SL Roadster a 2+2 and for the first time in the model’s history, 4-Matic All-Wheel-Drive now comes as standard.
2021 2022 Yamaha MT-09 - Performance, Price, and Photos
MY2021 brings a ground-up rebuild for the existing Yamaha MT-09. The factory doubles the “09” lineup by adding the top-drawer MT-09 SP to the mix. A new engine rides in a new frame with new suspension components and ride-quality electronics to make this a genuinely new version of Yamaha’s second-largest “Master of Torque” model.

Here’s a look at 10 of the most extreme off-road and all-terrain vehicles of all time:
2022 Indian Scout Bobber - Performance, Price, and Photos
Indian Motorcycle has certainly called some attention to its mid-size bikes through its success on the flat track, and the Scout Bobber looks to capitalize on that by garnering some of the factory-custom business. The “Bobber” brings modern performance to the table along with the overall look of the iconic bobber style, yet fits in well with the rest of the made-for-the-US market, foreign and domestic built.
