These are the Top 10 Interiors of 2014(Apr 12, 2014)This is one of the best interior cars I have even been in. They spared no expense. They loose money on the US market with these. Most of the parts are from the same manufactures BMW, Benz and Audi buys parts from.
Audi Announces LWB A6 E-Tron Hybrid for China(Apr 12, 2014)The stop and go traffic is terrible in all cities in china. So no matter how much power you have under the hood, you can go quick or fast enough to enjoy it. So being comfortable sitting in traffic is more attractive.

Big Changes in the Auto Industry Are Coming(Apr 01, 2014)Many auto manufacturing companies are trying to get their hands on Tesla not because of their patents.

2004 Maybach Covers One Million Miles and Then Some(Mar 10, 2014)So basically he has to drive over 274 every day for 10 years. And if you include the time the car spend at the shop for repairs and such, that means he would have had to drive even more miles each day. A bit hard to believe...
2004 Maybach Covers One Million Miles and Then Some(Mar 10, 2014)Reminds me of the show "married with children" when Al Bundy has his Dodge run over 1 million miles. A million miles on this car? Possibly 1 million km? I can't imagine 1 million miles in 10 years...
Is the BMW i8 a Worthy Heir to the Epic M1?(Mar 10, 2014)It's shocking to see blah the interior is after creating an outstanding exterior. Let's spend a ton of money designing a gorgeous car and putting in a boring updated existing interior of a 3 series in it...
Bentley Says 'Baby' Model Coming 2020(Mar 08, 2014)So basically a more luxurious Audi S4... for a lot more... I wonder if it will still share the same platform. Not sure what VW is thinking.

Another Tesla Model S Has Caught on Fire(Feb 16, 2014)Anyone majored in math or statistics knows Elon Musks claims about fire ratios are pure crap. www.evanmiller.org/tesla-fires.html

ABT Sportsline Upgrades Audi A4, A5 and Q5(Feb 08, 2014)Audi claims 211, but some Audi forums have claimed as much as 270 depending on the region and the location of manufacturing. With the that said, tuning to 290 isn't anything that exciting to be excited about.
London Parking Officers Treat Aventador Like Scum(Jan 22, 2014)Don't see what the problem is. London has just about the most CCTVs of any city in the world and as soon as you park illegally, the CCTV control notifies the parking authorities. There isn't any mistreatment of the car either.
New Ford F-150's Beer-Can Body a Costly Repair?(Jan 22, 2014)Don't know what the problem is. Audi did almost similar thing. All the aluminum work must be done at an Audi licensed body shop capable of doing correct repairs otherwise it voids warranties.

Hyundai Planning an AWD Performance V8 Genesis(Jan 19, 2014)Had a chance to drive one of these overt here. The rear wheel one that is. Actually very impressive. I'm not too fond of the front but it actually drove better than the current BMW 528i and the Lexus GS350! It felt a little nose heavy like my A6.
New BMW M3 and M4 Touch Down in Detroit(Jan 15, 2014)Slapping on fiber trim on an interior that hasn't changed much for many years doesn't constitute quality. Nothing wrong with using some plastic. Take a look at the instrument panel, no depth and very boring like all 3 & 5 series. Not worth $$$ u pay.
2015 Lexus RC F Officially Breaks Cover(Jan 09, 2014)Lexus does makes some of the most comfortable seats. No matter if they are bucket seats. My old ISF was such a delight to sit in and drive. I'm sure this will be the same.
2015 Lexus RC F Officially Breaks Cover(Jan 09, 2014)Matt, my 2012 Audi A6 has more plastic than this car. So does my brother 2013 BMW 335d. Oh and my seats are 40% fake leather and the BMW 3 series are also fake leather. This Lexus dashboard has more leather than BMW. What are you smoking?
Hyundai + Kia Paying $395 Million For Being Dishonest(Dec 25, 2013)They didn't lie. As Aaron said it was a misunderstanding of the EPA testing measurements.

Hyundai Shows Off Tech-Prowess for 2015 Genesis(Dec 07, 2013)By the same argument, you can say that you can fine electric motors on Prius years ago and Telsa is nothing special. My point is that the tech evolves and that Hyundai utilizes them better and more intuitively than Audi or BMW.
Hyundai Shows Off Tech-Prowess for 2015 Genesis(Dec 07, 2013)The tech in this car is so much better than the innovation tech package in my 2012 Audi A6. Also better than my brother's 2013 BMW. I don't know what you guys complaining about it being nothing new. It is new and better period! Stop blowing smoke...
Porsche Says 918 Will Always Be Hybrid(Dec 06, 2013)The electric motors give the instant torque for a rapid excel later a slow down for hard turns. I wouldn't be surprised if EV supercars eventually break records at the ring.
Babes of the Thailand Auto Expo(Dec 05, 2013)I'm pretty sure none of them. If you actually have been to Thailand not just for travel you would understand the culture better instead of relying on Hollywood. I'm not saying that lady boys don't exist, they do and there is a cultural reason for it.

2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 27, 2013)Even Lexus has moved to the touch less navi screens, which also is by far more intuitive than BMW's. Go read some BMW forums. People complain about how terrible it is.
2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 27, 2013)Technologies and designs as such as split armrests and touch screens navigations? BMW's new controls are terrible imitations of audi's MMI system in my opinion by the way.
2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 27, 2013)What modern BMW are you driving that uses the touch screen? The 2012 535i that was loaned to me a month ago uses a stupid knob for the screen control and so does my brother 3 series F30 model. So are you saying BMW copies other cars by using same
2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 26, 2013)At least the buys can be sure leather is 100% real and not those leatherettes/plastic/rubber combos the German cars put in their cars. Yes EU regulations, 40/60 ratio by law to use leatherette. Just doesn't feel the same.
2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 26, 2013)If you guys read the motor trend review of this car, they said the i terror quality is better than its competitors had to offer. As for dated? Every luxury car manufacture has transformed back to the classic redesign interiors. I think it looks great

2014 Hyundai Genesis Has Arrived(Nov 26, 2013)Hyundai did a great job with this car. Taking the designs from the 2007 concept and applying it to this. Aside from the design, their all wheel drive system is intriguing. Torque & power auto-redistribution based on road & driver needs sounds amazing
