From the vantage point of the brand new Range Rover Sport SVR’s cockpit, life looks more than good. This is, afterall, an SUV that JLR proudly proclaims: “the fastest, most powerful and most dynamically focused Land Rover ever produced.” (Interesting that they went with “Land Rover” there— hardly seems necessary, but I suppose it’s meant to remind us that this is, ultimately, one big happy family...

Nissan has sent the X-Trail back to the drawing board and emerged with a cross over unibody that won’t disappoint. And historically, this vehicle hasn’t— Nissan’s flagship crossover is global highest-selling SUV with 835,000 units sold in 2016.

We love going to sports car and super car launches as much as everyone else, but for sheer experience and an unrivaled fun factor, nothing beats a Land Rover launch. We’ve been to more than a dozen of these launch parties, each more amazing than the previous one. You see, unlike the usual car debuts where manufacturers throw a cocktail party next to a fancy track or a windy road, Land Rover likes...

It’s not every day you wake up you get to take a brand-new Ferrari on a long drive through some of the best sceneries on the planet, on the best roads on earth. But that’s exactly what I did a while back, when we were given the keys to the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. That’s right, as if the fact that it was a Ferrari wasn’t enough, we were given their flagship GTC4Lusso model, essentially a four-wheel driv...

San Diego is shining— it has that glossy, casual ease of a second city known for perfect weather and, well, a seemingly perfect lifestyle. Which is what makes it such a good spot for testing out the new Q60, Infiniti’s Europe-assaulting sports coupé designed to bring a little taste of the good life to whoever is lucky enough to take the wheel. Roland Krueger, President of Infiniti, seems to agree:...

One thing about the Volvo S90, is that it’s easy to lose sight of this lovely saloon in light of the success of the attention grabbing XC90. That is, until you spend some time with the car. At its core the S90 is another logical extension of the design language that underpins the SUV, and one destined to challenge the usual suspects in the hotly contested segment. The S90 manages to accomplish an...

Remember— when the Q50 was launched, it was obvious that Nissan’s luxury wing had its collective eye trained, Sauron-like, on BMW, Mercedes, and Audi. Japanese luxury cars aren’t just arriving, they're robust and very much part of the consumer dialogue.

Recently we drove INFINITI’s Q50 Hybrid around Italy’s lovely Lago D’Iseo and can report that the Q50 feels planted and powerful out on the track,...

The scenery around Sedona is monumental— red rock buttes reach up to the sky from the pine forest. Steep canyon walls give the place a feeling of sanctuary, and it’s the kind of place where one could seemingly sit forever in thrall to the natural beauty. But then, after an hour of waiting for lunch to be served, everyone is back to staring at their screens and the head waiter keeps whispering omin...

The name Patrol inspires trust, a vehicle that may not have a destination, but assuredly has the ability to get you there—wherever ‘there’ might be. This robust all-terrain Sport Utility Vehicle got its start in 1951, as the sort of body-on-frame/adapted truck platform that we associate with difficult off-road duties. Over the years, and too many iterations to number, the Patrol has changed in man...

With the car cognoscenti descending on Pebble Beach California for it annual automotive beauty contest, the boffins at Maybach decided to go big. With the premiere of the singular Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, a sensational luxury-class coupé, Maybach has announced a stunning new trajectory.

The 2+2-seater is a homage to the glorious age of the aero coupés and consciously carries this tradition forwar...
