With Audi Holoride, I was the Disney VR hero in the backseat of an e-tron

From the outside, it looks as though I'm in the back seat of a new Audi e-tron, being driven around Speed Vegas for roughly two laps. Look closer, though, and I'm not making awkward small-talk with my driver: instead, I donned a set of Oculus Rift virtual reality glasses, was handed a controller, and set to work being among the first to experience Holoride's vision of next-gen in-car entertainment.

Dinosaurs, Drones and Infiniti SUVs: A grand Gobi Desert adventure

You don't typically find too many Infiniti cars in the Gobi Desert, mainly just humungous poisonous spiders and feisty scorpions. Oh, and dinosaur fossils, which is why the automaker teamed up with the Hong Kong chapter of The Explorers Club, to revisit and rewrite the rules of exploration - and put the QX50, QX60, and QX80 SUVs through their paces in the process.

While most drivers won't experience it, it turned out to be quite the thrill to drift an electric SUV. Indeed as far as I can remember, it's probably the most fun I've had behind the wheel of a luxury SUV.

When you're building an electric supercar, who better than Tony Stark to give it that superstar shine. "I've been having an extramarital affair with Audi for more than a decade now," Robert Downey Jr jokingly quips at the unveil of the Audi GT Concept.

2019 Toyota RAV4 first drive review: Compact SUV makes huge improvements

It’s been 22 years since the first-generation Toyota RAV4 arrived in US shores. Back then, compact-based crossovers or small SUVs were as ubiquitous as smartphones, emojis, and selfies - in short, it was a tiny market, compared to the behemoth it has become today.
