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. If you're getting hung up on the four doors and seating for up to five, you're missing the point.

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

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 Audi RS Q8 First Drive Review: An SUV that surprises

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.

A compact SUV, the GLA packs a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine along with the cabin technology that we've been so impressed by in the A-Class Sedan.

This restomod 1997 Acura SLX is super-stealth “Super Handling” genius

This restomod 1997 Acura SLX is super-stealth “Super Handling” genius

Your eyes do not deceive you: this is indeed a 1997 Acura SLX, the automaker's first SUV, but the classic lines hide a thoroughly more entertaining restomod. Forebear to the MDX and RDX, the automaker's current SUVs, the SLX was hardly commonplace to begin with, but thanks to an engine more powerful than what you'd find in a Civic Type R, along with some other improvements, this reimagined modern classic is even more unusual.

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is pitch-perfect

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is pitch-perfect

Nobody was surprised that the 2020 Land Rover Defender returning the classic nameplate stateside drew praises. Realists were overjoyed by how the new Defender managed to pay homage to its original styling without ruining the boxy, go-anywhere attitude of the original. On the other hand, there are of course the purists who prefer simple mechanicals, crude yet dependable suspension and drivetrain components, and an earthquake-proof body-on-frame chassis, the latter of which is also generally responsible for a bone-shaking and teeth-chattering ride.

Ford sells out of Mustang Mach-E First Edition reservations

It's been a big week for electric car reservations, and the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is demonstrating that while pony car purists might not be convinced by the name, that doesn't mean would-be drivers are in short supply.
