The Genesis G70 is a new brand calling out old-school luxury

2019 Jaguar I-PACE first-drive review: The go-anywhere EV

The 2019 Jaguar I-PACE all-electric SUV is finally here. Contrary to what others might say, the I-PACE is not primarily designed and engineered to dethrone the capacious Tesla Model X. Instead, Jaguar’s first fully-electric car will stay true to the old Jaguar credo of space, pace, and grace, only now the ‘pace’ part is motivated, not by a supercharged V8, but by a pair of powerful electric motors.

The all-new 2019 Audi Q8 flagship SUV is not merely Ingolstadt's answer to the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and the Range Rover Sport. Audi's push further into the upper echelons of luxury transportation, it will also serve as the foundation of the automaker's new design language for its future Q-product line up. And, though "four-door coupe" may still sound like an oxymoron to some, an unexpectedly extended drive in the new Q8 proved to me that this is more than just a new badge.
