Sometimes a car can be more than the sub of it’s specifications and the 2023 Solterra is certainly that kind of car. Let’s be honest, on paper the Solterra doesn’t look great: xxx miles of range, “just” 218 horsepower, no funk, and slow charging made it the newest EV I was least interested in driving… But then I drove it and I’m glad I did. https://youtu.be/XWpMH4qrFmg It’s A … [Read more...] about Subaru’s First EV Is Much Better in Person Than On “Paper” – 2023 Subaru Solterra First Drive Review

The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has long been the showcase for the brand’s upcoming tech, and the new-for-2021 S is no different. That’s why I decided to get my hands on the 2022 S 580 4MATIC for a week. I don’t normally seek out ultra-luxury vehicles because, quite frankly, they don’t tend to sell well. With other car companies, the gadgets, gizmos, tech and styling introduced on … [Read more...] about 2022 Mercedes-Benz S 580 4MATIC – The Ultimate Sedan
