PostHeaderIcon Maserati’s Edizione Nobile Package Adds Some Extra Goodies to the 2019 Levante, Ghibli, and Quattroporte

It’s been a while since Maserati made the news, but when it does, it makes sure to leave a lasting impression. The Italian automaker has announced a series of special edition models for the 2019 Ghibli, Levante, and Quattroporte under the Edizione Nobile package. The special edition models are limited to a total of 150 units with each model receiving 50 units. The Edizione Nobile special edition models carry a similar theme, defined by an exclusive paint scheme to go with a handful of upgrades in the exterior and interior. There are no engine upgrades included in the special edition models. As it is, the package is scheduled to arrive this month in Maserati showrooms, both in the U.S. and Canada.

PostHeaderIcon The Next Generation of BMWs Will Have Their Own Distinct Design

Following in the footsteps of Audi and Mercedes, BMW has adopted the ‘Russian Doll’ design; wherein every product basically looks the same. It feels like the cars have taken the ‘twinning’ concept way too seriously. For instance, it is hard to differentiate between the Audi A4, A6, and A8 if not for their lengths. And, this design approach is getting more and more common for brands. Maybe they use it as a ‘brand recall’ strategy, but it is getting out of hand. So, finally, BMW has decided to put an end to it…..finally

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque vs 2019 Audi Q3

The 2020 Range Rover Evoque and the 2020 Audi Q3 have both appeared in last six months. Not only do they compete in the same segment, but actually target exactly the same buyers – fashion-conscious buyers who live in urban areas but do an occasional adventurous stint. I do not want to sound like a chauvinist, but it seems that both of these machines do play a game to win women’s’ hearts. I am not making this up. Just at last years’ Los Angeles Auto Show, the Audi Q3 won the Womens’ Choice Awards. And, back in the day when Range Rover revealed its first Evoque, it employed Victoria Beckham to design some details of the interior. You may call me whatever you like, but this shows the obvious intentions of these two. They did it before and they are doing it now as well. Plus, when you see it on the road, note who is behind the wheel. A boy or a girl.

There is only one massive change compared with the cars of before – the Audi grew by quite a bit. The Evoque did not. At all. Nevertheless, both companies do look to cash in on the same virtues as before. They are zippy around town, astutely fast on the autobahn, look exceptionally well in traffic, and feature a host of technology to make even the sanest man go mad. Sorry, but that’s what it takes today to be a hit.

PostHeaderIcon The First Video Reviews of the 2020 Mercedes GLE SUV Are In

Mercedes is a manufacturer that really seems to love its high-riding SUVs, so much so that it basically has one for every size class of vehicle it sells, from A-Class-sized to S-Class, and its second largest offering is the GLE. An all-new GLE was recently revealed, and journos have had a chance to try it out. While most seem to just spend a bit too much time playing with the bouncy, active suspension, the new GLE is a serious contender in its segment.

PostHeaderIcon Check Out This Nice Demo of the 2019 BMW X7’s Third-Row Seating

A BMW with 3-row seating is a big deal. It’s a big SUV, but a big deal in terms of market incursions as well. The 2019 BMW X7 is the first Beemer to have such an arrangement. Ok, the first after the BMW X5, which has an option for an additional two seats. That one, however, had rather cramped third-row seating. Now the X7, with all of its massive size, can fit two regulars in the third row. Why the heck am I telling you all this?

Well, BMWBlog revealed a cool video filmed on the BMW stand at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show with a 6.3 foot Dany getting into the X7’s third row of seats. He did fit.

PostHeaderIcon BMW M340i xDrive

Just before its official unveiling at the L.A. Auto Show, BMW released the first specifications about the best G20 3 Series revealed so far – the M340i xDrive. It is not an M3, but it is really, really close to being one. Actually, the M340i is the most powerful 3 Series ever revealed. Save for previous two generations of the M3.

Taking the G20 3 Series architecture to a level unachieved by any BMW 340i of before, the 2020 BMW M340i xDrive comes with a standard, electronically controlled, mechanical limited slip differential, a 382 horsepower engine, and specially tuned eight-speed transmission with Launch Control.

Update 12/3/2018: We’ve updated this review with new images taken at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Check them out in the gallery below!

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Lincoln Aviator, in Base Form, Packs More Power than Most Competitors from Mercedes, BMW, and Audi

Much like Cadillac, Lincoln has been struggling to get back on the luxury horse for quite a few years now. And it seems the company is one step closer with the Aviator, a brand-new SUV that slots between the Nautilus and the massive Navigator.

PostHeaderIcon The Mercedes-AMG GT53 Showed up to the Los Angeles Auto Show in a Pretty Red Dress

As far as I’m concerned the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is about as controversial as it gets. I consider it to be one of the laziest efforts from Mercedes to date. I mean, come on, It’s basically a CLS – it even looks like it, and some of the powertrains are even the same. Case in point – the AMG GT 53. Under the hood, you’ll find the same exact powertrain that you find under the hood of the CLS53. Be that as it may, we stumbled across the GT53 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and it sure did look really nice – even if it is just a CLS – in its fine red color. And, to top it off, it is rocking some rather strange, out-of-place, old-school wheels. That’s right – the AMG GT 53 showed up to L.A. wearing a nice red dress and a new pair of shoes.

PostHeaderIcon Cadillac Introduces the Not-So-Sporty Cadillac Escalade Sport Edition

Anxious to finally see a V-Sport version of the Cadillac Escalade in showrooms? Well, you’ll have to wait a while longer as Cadillac isn’t planning on one until the next-gen SUV arrives. However, the luxury brand just debuted the Cadillac Sport at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Sadly though, it’s not as sporty as the badge suggests.

PostHeaderIcon We Can’t Get Enough of the Rotating Display in the Bentley Continental GT Convertible

Bentley’s Continental GT is probably the ultimate luxury grand tourer that money can buy. Now, just as the British manufacturer is debuting the convertible version, we stop to take a look at the centerpiece, literally and metaphorically, of the Continental’s interior: its three-sided rotating panel on the center console.

It’s no question that Bentley outdid themselves with the new Continental. Yes, it’s still a massive lump of a car, and yes, you’ll never get everyone to agree that the smaller outboard headlights make sense but, now, the car feels more supple than ever while still oozing class and luxury.

PostHeaderIcon Maserati Quattroporte III

The third generation of the Maserati Quattroporte debuted in 1979 while Maserati was under De Tomaso ownership. It was a return to the classic RWD setup and the V-8 engine which were trademarks of the original Quattroporte full-size sedan of the ’60s. The Quattroporte III was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign.

It’s widely considered that the niche class of the fast full-size sedans was created once Maserati unveiled its first Quattroporte – which means ’four doors’ – at the 1963 Turin Auto Show. With that being said, other manufacturers like Facel in France and Lagonda in the U.K. also built fast sedans in the late ’50s and early ’60s.

But Maserati was the only sports car manufacturer that stuck to the idea of building fast and luxurious sedans for more than just a few short years. As such, in 1979, the third generation of the Quattroporte finally went into production, three years after it was first shown at the 1976 Turin Auto Show. It featured Italdesign styling and was revigorated as it got a V-8 again, compared to the second generation model which was only available with power coming from a lousy V-6.

PostHeaderIcon The 2020 Range Rover Evoque Has the Coolest Rear View Mirror Ever

The Range Rover Evoque isn’t exactly a spring chicken and 2019 marks the introduction of the second-generation of Land Rovers entry-level people mover. Entry level is a weak word when it comes to the Evoque however and, despite the fact that this model looks a lot like the old at a glance, there’s a lot of new tech here. The Evoque just became Land Rovers first mild hybrid vehicle and a plug-in model is even on the way. New screens adorn the updated dashboard inside but what really stuck out to me was the new hybrid rear view mirror.

PostHeaderIcon Visual Comparison Between the Aston Martin DBX Prototype and the Aston Martin DBX Concept

Aston Martin is going in. All in with an SUV. The DBX prototype it showed only weeks ago confirmed the company’s intention to build high-end luxury SUVs, now plastered with Aston Martin design cues, sophisticated overall looks, and technology to compete with novel entries such as the Lambo Urus and any of the Porsche Cayennes. The DBX prototype may not be fully revealed yet, but I have enough to go on to compare it with the DBX Concept that appeared in 2015. The SUV that will eventually reach the market in 2020 takes the conventional shape of a modern SUV but with a few curious touches that will make it somewhat special among a number of competitors. Interestingly enough, it did forgo all the cool touches we have seen on the DBX concept. It is a completely different beast.

PostHeaderIcon Denim Meets the 2018 Touring Superleggera on Jay Leno’s Garage: Video

The Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera name traces its roots back to 1925 when the coachbuilding company was founded. Over the years it’s been instrumental in designing many vehicles that we now consider timeless classics (the Lamborghini 350 and 400 GT, Aston Martin DB5, and Maserati 3500 GT, among others). The company closed its doors in 1966, but the trademark was acquired in 2006 by new owners that, ultimately, tried to pick up where the brand left off all those decades ago.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Seriously Did Doughnuts in a Field with a Rolls-Royce Cullinan

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is the first ever utility vehicle offered by the British luxury car manufacturer but, beyond being able to carry the super-rich down the world’s highways and busy metropolitan streets, it can also go off-road like no BMW ever could. This was further showcased when someone decided to do doughnuts in one. In a field.

Launched this year, the Cullinan, named after the largest flawless diamond ever found, is Rolls-Royce’s first ’high-sided car.’ It’s the perfect Alpha to Bentley Bentayga’s Omega and, as we’ve discussed just a couple of days ago, it’s also good when taken off-road.

However, some owners, who’ve paid in excess of $325,000 to get their hands on one, seem not to be entirely convinced of the test that was organized for the press by Rolls-Royce to showcase the Cullinan’s capacity off the beaten path. This owner, for instance, decided it’d be a good idea to take his SUV to a field and just do doughnuts to the sheer enjoyment of those who happen to film the whole thing.

PostHeaderIcon Rolls-Royce Phantom by Mansory

I am about to tell you about the Rolls-Royce Phantom garnished with decorative pieces by Mansory and then jeweled by an effortless push of 602 thoroughbreds. It is Mansory’s way of going above and beyond. Above and beyond anything one may consider customary, appropriate, or even becoming. It is as bizarre as Halloween cosplay and as exquisite as a ball gown. It is controversy in understanding, and harmony in dissonance. It is the Rolls-Royce Phantom by Mansory.

I would argue that gliding through the atmosphere, carried by a swoosh of hot air, is as close to freedom as one may get. Such a dignified spectacle can be almost recreated on the roads as well. Riding in the back seats of the Rolls-Royce Phantom is more comfortable for sure, but the sheer exquisiteness of its cabin pursued by a definite insulation from the outside world is as equally liberating as gliding, although fundamentally opposite in its execution. That is what Rolls-Royce is all about – being as free as a bird, but in a way, some may even call profligacy.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom by Masonry is profligate and lecherous. But it is impeccable and irresistible much the same.

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Spent Almost £1 Billion To Give the Evoque a Mild Facelift and New Technology

Land Rover chose Thanksgiving day to debut the new Range Rover Evoque and here we are looking at a model that, at a glance, received a very mild, even somewhat Audi-like, facelift. Below this mildly changed skin, however, Land Rover claims it has spent nearly £1 Billion to refine the architecture underneath with the goal of making it suitable for electrification.

The interior is also littered with plenty of high-end tech, including two high-definition touchscreen displays, refined infotainment software, and artificial intelligence. Powertrain options include a range of diesel and gasoline engines. The entry-level model (the D150 trim) is the only model available with a six-speed manual and is the only model available without Land Rover’s mild hybrid technology. Towing capacity ranges anywhere between 3,527 and 4,409 pounds depending on trim and equipment level.

PostHeaderIcon What do we know about the Aston Martin DBX Crossover?

Joining the onslaught of super powerful and super luxurious SUVs of today, Aston Martin revealed the first photos of the new DBX. Although still under heavy camouflage, we can clearly see the contours of the first Aston Martin SUV. Furthermore, with a bit of research, I did find out quite a bit about the newest competitor among super SUVs.

Nevertheless, it is still quite uncertain what segment the SUV will enter. Will it be like a hyped-up version of SUVs the size of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, or will it match the audaciousness, and the size of the X5M, or the AMG GLE 63S? These are the unknowns we are still investigating.

Despite its size, the Aston Martin DBX is going to join the exclusive club of unanticipated super SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga, the Porsche Cayenne, and even the Rolls Royce Cullinan. Granted, all of these SUVs tread a slightly different path but have some commonalities like being powerful, fast, and full of technology.

PostHeaderIcon The Audi RS7 Sportback was Spotted Again as It Nears its Date with the Production Line

The new Audi RS7 Sportback has been spotted yet again; this time much closer. The alter ego version of the A7 will have a lot of performance bits added to it. We’ve seen Audi turn its other models into S and RS versions and the results have been quite impressive. Not much is known about the RS7 Sportback, and most of what we do know is based largely on rumors and speculation.

PostHeaderIcon Bosch and Daimler Will Conduct Public Testing for New Autonomous Ride-Hailing Service in San Jose CA

Everywhere you look these days automakers scramble to put together their own autonomous vehicle program and ’lead the change.’ Just recently I was reporting on Uber’s desire to begin testing their autonomous Volvos again – and that’s not even a car company. Now, Daimler wants to introduce its own ride-hailing service, and it will use Mercedes-Benz S-Class models as its test beds.

The two German giants plan to deploy the pilot program as early as the first half of next year. The Mercedes S-Class models, which will be equipped with Level 4 or Level 5 automation, will be deployed on the streets of San Jose, California. Daimler Mobility Services is currently working on an app for your mobile phone which will allow you to summon a self-driving S-Class so you too can experience the joys of being driven around without having to put up with a driver asking you annoyingly personal questions.

Keep reading to learn more about Daimler and Bosch’s concerted efforts to bring Mercedes-branded automation to the streets of California
