2022 Honda Civic: Eleventh-Gen Civic is Finally Sorted Out & We Like It!

The 2022 Honda Civic is proof that Honda’s mojo is back with a vengeance. If you’re old enough to remember, the Civic gave Honda some proper street cred from the 1990s to the early 2000s by offering rev-happy engines, clever usage of space, brilliant ergonomics, and lasting durability – not to mention one of the best manual transmissions in the business. And now here we are, 11 generations later. Setting The Stage When that VTEC kicks in, you better be holding on to something. But with t...

2022 Lexus ES: Fresh Styling & New Interior Updates For This Luxury Sedan

The 2022 Lexus ES is pretty much more of the same: More luxury, more safety, more features, and more of that rock-solid Lexus reliability. Part of the fifth-gen model unveiled in 2018, the Lexus ES received a significant redesign in 2019 and a few updates the year after. But for 2022, the Lexus ES is debuting a fresher face and a host of necessary interior updates. “Our goal was to deepen the high quality of the ES and to add new value,” said Lexus International Chief Engineer Tetsuya Aoki. “...

Tony Iommi Bought a Lamborghini Urus & He Went “Mad On Blue”

Hey, guess what? Tony Iommi bought himself a new Lamborghini Urus. Yes, that Tony Iommi. The guitarist from Black Sabbath. The guitarist that chopped off the tips of two fingers (by mistake) and kept playing anyway. The not that crazy guy in Black Sabbath. The one with the mustache. Him. It turns out he’s into Lambos in a big way. Six-String Samurai First off, and just generally speaking here, anybody who plays guitar or bass – since about 1970 – and lives in the Western world has an en...

Audi A6 e-tron concept: The Magnificent Return of “Vorsprung Durch Technik”

The Audi A6 e-tron concept made its debut at Auto Shanghai 2021. I’m a massive sucker for Audi concept vehicles. The brand has a habit of presenting concept cars that are 90 to 95 percent ready for production. And upon laying eyes on Audi’s magnificent-looking A6 e-tron concept, only three words entered my mind: Vorsprung Durch Technik. Setting The Stage The Vorsprung Durch Technik tagline is responsible for the high-tech persona of modern Audi vehicles. In English, it means Advancement ...

2022 Toyota GR 86: New Name, More Powerful Engine, Same Fun-To-Drive Attitude!

From now on, the Toyota 86 sports car will be called the GR 86. And as such, the 2022 Toyota GR 86 is the third vehicle to earn the Gazoo Racing (GR) badge after the GR Supra and GR Yaris hot hatchback, the latter of which we won’t be getting in America. While we still can’t get over why Toyota insists on not bringing the GR Yaris to U.S. shores, we were left scratching our heads when Toyota insisted on delaying the 2022 GR 86’s debut a full five months after Subaru unveiled the next-gen BRZ....

Horse & Rider: Inside The Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept

Lexus is among a few luxury automakers who are yet to release or unveil an all-electric vehicle (a list that includes Bentley and Aston Martin, to name a few). However, that’s about to change with the Lexus LF-Z Electrified Concept. Parent company Toyota and Lexus are somewhat late to the EV party, and we find this perplexing at the very least. An Ambituous Plan Lexus has been fiddling with hybrid technology since 2005. And yet, the brand doesn’t have an all-electric vehicle in its port...

This Video From Lexus Shows The Dangers of Texting & Driving

According to NHTSA, the average time it takes to send or receive a text message is 4.6 seconds when driving.

In this video, participants take a Lexus NX on a closed course, thinking they’re going for a routine test drive. However, they don’t know this vehicle is modified to randomly obstruct their view for 4.6 seconds. Original article: This Video From Lexus Shows The Dangers of Texting & Driving...

Genesis X Concept: Inside This Vibrant Showcase for “Sustainable Luxury”

Wow! This is the new Genesis X Concept, and to say it’s a looker would be a huge understatement. And it’s not just a flashy design study either, at least not from what we could gather during its recent global debut in Los Angeles. The Genesis X Concept could be (could be) the next benchmark. Getting On The Map Every so often, a “new” car company fires something like the Genesis X Concept off. The world takes notice, and that’s it: that car company is no longer the new kid at school.

An April Fool: VW Not Rebranding Itself as “Voltswagen” for the United States Market Afterall

It was all an April Fools’ Day joke. Volkswagen Group of America had officially announced on Tuesday, March 30th, that its U.S. brand name would change from Volkswagen of America to Voltswagen of America. The change was meant to reflect the automaker’s commitment to electrification. Although it seemed as if VW were serious, the automaker later confirmed it was merely a marketing stunt to create buzz around the the new ID.4.

McLaren 720S GT3X: Your Official Track Day Monster Has Arrived!

It’s always something to watch when a racing car company makes a road car, or, even better, a track-day car.

2022 Kia Stinger: As Good As It Gets, Now Even Better

The 2022 Kia Stinger is surfacing with a mild facelift and more horses under the hood. First seen in 2017 as Kia’s highest-performing production vehicle, the Stinger is facing stiff competition from German stalwarts like the Audi S4, Mercedes-AMG C43, and BMW M340i. Au contraire, it also has the Genesis G70 hot on its heels, its veritable platform-mate from parent company Hyundai. In response, Kia is upping the ante by giving the 2022 Stinger more power, more luxury features, and a suite of ...
