Lamborghini luxury SUV is a go, slated for 2018 debut

Not all concept cars have the good fortune to make it to the production line, but it seems that the Lamborghini Urus has beaten the odds. "Luxury SUV" almost sound like an oxymoron, but that is exactly what Lamborghini's new model will be. The luxury SUV, which still doesn't have a name aside from the Urus concept, will be the third model to join the luxury marque's product line. It's production will take place in a soon to be expanded Sant’Agata Bolognese plant, keeping the new car within Lamborghini's "Made in Italy" category.

2016 Volvo XC90 first-drive – Scandinavia on wheels

Nordic noir has invaded our television and our bookshelves, and now Volvo wants to do the same for luxury SUVs with the all-new 2016 XC90. As many companies, automotive and otherwise have discovered, throwing money at a problem isn’t necessarily the best way to fix it. Nonetheless, it helps to have deep pockets when you’re tasked with completely reinventing your line-up, and Volvo has spent over $11bn since it was sold to Geely in 2010 and began to rebuild its range from the ground up. Now, we’re getting a taste of what that money bought, and like moody Scandinavian detectives, it turns out to be complicated.

TAG Heuer smartwatch coming November but you can’t afford it

TAG Heuer smartwatch coming November but you can’t afford it

Now that the Apple Watch has started arriving on the wrists of users, luxury watch makers are starting to take the smartwatch trend more seriously. But instead of being worried by the rise of these highly digital timepieces, some are seeing an opportunity. Take TAG Heuer's Jean-Claude Biver, for example. He sees the Apple Watch as a hip new trend that will get youngsters to start getting used to watches, which could eventually lead to more sales of traditional watches. That said, TAG Heuer's $1,400 smartwatch coming this November might be a bitter pill to swallow.

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is not your grandpa’s Caddy. Neither is it the BMW M3 or M4, despite the team responsible for the sedan and coupe duo admitting that the Bavarians were the primary target. V-Series has been Cadillac’s sledgehammer retort to German Autobahn-bruisers since 2004, and the ATS-V is the third generation of car to wear the badge. It’s straightforward in principle: take an existing Caddy, put it on a diet, slam a beefy engine under the hood, and market it as American power. Now, for the first time, the V-Series line is splitting, and it’s doing so in a mighty interesting way.

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

When you're driving a bright orange Lexus RC 350 F SPORT, you quickly realize two things. First, that even when you're in laid-back San Francisco, people are going to stare, even if they’ll try to make it look like they’re not interested. Second, that nobody is going to let you out of junctions or to merge in their lane (though they'll often match your speed, just ahead or behind of you, so that they can peer at the badge; Lexus is still more associated with sensible - maybe staid - sedans than outlandishly swoopy coupes). Like the RC 350 F SPORT itself, relationships on the road are complicated.

Audi Prologue allroad previews wireless hybrid charging

Audi has added a third model to its Prologue line of luxury concepts, the Prologue allroad, a plug-in hybrid intended for adventure away from the tarmac. Borrowing the dominant grille design of the previous Prologue and Prologue Avant, as well as the long hood, the allroad opts for meatier wheel arches and sizable 22-inch wheels inside them, while driver and passengers get pre-emptive luxury with an onboard computer that not only recognizes who's getting in, but adjusts the seats and climate control to their preconfigured preferences.

Rolls-Royce unveils Project Cullinan SUV engineering mule

Rolls-Royce unveils Project Cullinan SUV engineering mule

Last February, luxury car maker Rolls-Royce surprised the automobile industry by declaring that it will be dipping its toes into the SUV segment, though of course it prefers not to call it that. Dubbed Project Cullinan, this "Effortless Everywhere" all-terrain motor car would be poised to take on the Bentley Bentayga in almost everything, probably including the price. Fast-forward two months later, Rolls-Royce is giving the public a peek at the first step in that new dream, an engineering mule that will kickstart the development and testing phase of the SUV all-terrain motor car.
