Does Cadillac have a chance against BMW? The US car company reckons it does, and the 2012 Cadillac ATS is the Bimmer-killer patriots have been waiting for.

In-car Internet coming to Cadillac soon

In-car Internet coming to Cadillac soon

In case driving around in a Cadillac isn't enough for you, come April you'll be able to get the Internet while out on the road, too. And it's all because of a new system called Cadillac WiFi that is based on an Autonet Mobile device. This device is completely portable and makes it so computers can access the Internet over a local connection.

In case you want a car with this gizmo built in, your first option will be the CTS Sports Sedan. However, you will be able to buy the WiFi device by itself, though it'll cost you $499 plus $29 a month for the service.

At the moment, Cadillac is one of only a few car companies looking to pursue Internet for in the car. However, there is some concern that within a few years this technology will be useless, once 3G and 4G cell phone networks and devices are more readily available, cheaper and more reliable. But for now, it's still pretty cool.

2015 Kia K900 First-drive

You can’t accuse Kia of not setting itself ambitious challenges, and the 2015 K900 is unquestionably its most provocative play in the US so far. A full-size, rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan, the new K900 is Kia’s play for the high-end market dominated by BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Lexus. Buyers of those brands have great expectations, however; SlashGear got behind the wheel to see if the K900 can play with the big boys.

Dashboard Wars: Are iOS and Android Infotainment Cuckoos?

Forget phones and tablets, the next big thing in mobility really can move. Audi, so the latest rumors claim, is readying an announcement that it will put Android on future car dashboards, supposedly set to unveil a plan for NVIDIA-powered infotainment systems alongside Google at CES 2014 next week. The deal is said to be a strike back against Apple's play for the car industry; yet, not every car manufacturer is so keen to throw in with the mobile heavyweights. Soon, the battle lines will be drawn: do you embrace smartphone platforms on your dashboard, or stand against them?

Lexus LS 460 F SPORT Review

Lexus LS 460 F SPORT Review

You may not have heard of the Lexus F SPORT brand, but the Japanese luxury car company thinks models like the LS 460 F SPORT will change that. Taking every discrete executive's favorite sleeper-sedan and throwing some LFA-inspired sports magic at it, the LS 460 F SPORT may not give those in Mercedes-Benz's AMG division or their counterparts at BMW's M Sport labs sleepless nights quite yet, but it's still one of the biggest shake-ups to the Lexus brand since it expanded into SUVs. That, lest we forget, was a decision that did Lexus proud, so it would perhaps be a foolish car fan that dismissed this niche curio as nothing more than a gimmick. SlashGear slipped behind the wheel to find out more; read on for the full review.
