2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB First Drive Review: 3-row SUV is compact not compromised

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB First Drive Review: 3-row SUV is compact not compromised

Even before the arrival of Mercedes-Benz’s all-new compact 2020 GLB SUV, the German automaker has a full eight sport utility vehicles for the US market. The GLB takes it to nine SUVs in total, which is more than what I was expecting before I double-checked to compensate for my aging memory. That's a whole lot of options if you want a luxury truck, and a very broad range when it comes to size and abilities: the GLB happens to be the seventh car to utilize Mercedes’ new compact car platform, the same architecture as found under the A-Class and CLA coupe.

The Lamborghini Urus demands your respect

The Lamborghini Urus demands your respect

Purity is a concept the Lamborghini Urus has little time for, and rightly so. On paper, SUV body aside, it checks off all the boxes fans of the automaker have come to expect: ridiculous power, fiendishly clever engineering, and performance as high as its price tag.

2020 BMW X6 First Drive Review: Nobody tell this SUV it’s not a sports car

The 2020 BMW X6 excels in the very niche it created more than ten years ago. Back then, the first-gen X6 was polarizing, to say the least. But it found its way into garages of people who embraced the concept of a sportier type of SUV: in fact, the X6 has been one of BMW’s best sellers for the past decade or so, and hence the introduction of an all-new third-generation X6 to carry that torch.

2020 Genesis G90 First Drive Review: Daring to be Different

2020 Genesis G90 First Drive Review: Daring to be Different

Pulling up to the curb at the airport, the 2020 Genesis G90 looks like CGI dropped into real life. Little prepares you for quite how unexpected, how outlandish the new luxury sedan's styling is, nor how dramatically it cuts through the swathes of regular traffic. This may only be a mid-model refresh for the G90, but it's the sort of refresh that left LA teens pointing and gawking.

2020 Audi RS Q8 First Drive Review: An SUV that surprises

The 2020 Audi RS Q8 is the new flagship in the German carmaker’s growing portfolio, and only the second Q-model to receive the RS badge. It's a badge that sets some seriously high standards, too: we've not long driven the magnificent RS7 Sportback and RS6 Avant, and each sets a tall bar for their bigger sibling to meet. If the RS Q8 is to hold its own, it needs to be a super-SUV.

The new electric sedan is Porsche's big push into a segment dominated by Tesla, but the window sticker in dealerships is going to require a little explaining.

2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo Spyder First Drive Review: A GT with supercar DNA

Lamborghini is on a roll. The Italian supercar maker known for creating beautiful poster cars is hitting new sales records, notably from selling mind-bending supercars rather than anything so mundane as pickup trucks or SUVs.
