What's it like? Plumping for a van-shaped MPV as your seven-seat, family-hauling weapon of choice over a more overtly prestigious SUV – in the form of the Volvo XC90, Land Rover Discovery or Audi Q7 – is a choice no doubt driven by a preference for modularity, flexibility and practicality over all else. And while those school run stalwarts claim early victories in the kerb appeal, performance and off-roading stakes, the Multivan's fitness for purpose really Read More »

Posted in REVIEWS on May 16, 2022

Chevy already gave us a glimpse of the upcoming Equinox EV’s exterior and interior design, but now we get to see the inside again in video form and exclusively in its LT trim. It looks like it might be the blue, white and black interior shown in the initial renderings, but these shots look a bit more final/defined than those ones. The dash looks far more sculpted with a couple tiers/levels, and we can see Read More »

2022 Mercedes C-Class First Drive Review | Junior suite Benz

Posted in REVIEWS on May 16, 2022

Sedans have become the Jan Brady of automobiles. They’re overlooked and underappreciated, as consumers lavish firstborn attention on SUVs, or coo over the latest electric babies. So when the all-new 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class was announced, the news didn’t exactly light the world on fire. But now that I’ve driven the standard C 300, I feel a bit guilty for overlooking its significance, at least for SUV refusniks determined to keep their feet and seat closer Read More »

Posted in REVIEWS on May 16, 2022

Android Auto users are in line for a fairly sizable update coming soon. Google revealed a totally new look and design for Android Auto at its Google I/O event last week, and the main takeaway is newfound flexibility. Car makers are not exactly consistent with the various screen sizes and orientations used in vehicles. Many favor a widescreen format, while others prefer a vertically-oriented portrait format, and there are so many others in between. This Read More »

Instead of gloss black wheels to match the black exterior accents, the Camry Nightshade now features bronze 19-inch wheels. It's especially strange Read More »
