  • 2018 Genesis G80 3.3T Review

    The updated 2018 G80 is the latest shot across the bow of the established luxury brands. With more luxury for the dollar and an all-new twin-turbo engine, the G80 3.3T is aimed squarely at the Lexus GS and Audi A6.

The all-new model is a little more compact that the Cruse sedan for easier city parking but swallows considerably more cargo. GM’s newest hatch has another trick up its sleeve: a soon to be available 1.6L

  • 2017 Mercedes Metris Review

    The Metris, also known as the Vito in Europe is not the luxury Mercedes minivan that some shoppers were hoping for, instead the Metris in both passenger and cargo versions is designed to be the ultimate commercial-grade minivan for shuttles, taxis, painters, plumbers and anyone else who wants a durable van that’s easier to park
