It’s not Your Grandfather’s Lincoln any More

Lincoln Corsair AWD Reserve (2020)

Mention the words Lincoln automobiles to thirty or forty-somethings and most envision an elderly couple heading to the golf club in their Continental or Town Car. Or maybe, the badge engineering Ford did so blatantly in the early 2000’s. Surprise! That’s now firmly in the past, as Lincoln is starting to get truly serious in becoming a real player in the luxury Crossover/SUV market. Read more

A World Class Grand Tourer

BMW M850i xDrive Gran Coupe (2020)

Just say the name “Gran Coupe” and it automatically conveys an image of something sexy and luxurious yet functional and practical. The all-new BMW M850i is all that and more!

The curvaceous silhouette, wide kidney grille and long, sleek hood make the M850i look elegant and sporty from every angle. There are many purposeful and smart design ideas that come together in the making of this gran coupe and fortunately, the freakishly large kidney grille is not one of them. Thank you, BMW! Read more

It has Real Presence, Even in a World Full of Ubiquitous SUV’s.

Genesis is sending a strong message to the established luxury brands from Germany and Japan with their exciting product portfolio which includes the recently introduced G70 sport sedan among others and the all new, three-row SUV called the GV80 from the summer 2020 on. It is very clear that the Genesis brand is a new page in the luxury vehicle handbook. Read more

A Face Only a Mom Could Love

BMW i3 Sport with Range Extender

I’m not a mom and I loved the i3 Sport. Why? Because it has personality, its different, did everything I needed perfectly and it will probably do the same for most people. They simply have to drive it in order to understand.

I could not quite figure out what this car is. It’s not an SUV yet you do sit higher than a typical sedan or coupe. It’s not a sedan because it doesn’t have the typical four doors, yet it does have rear doors and it’s not a sports car because of the size and height yet you could out maneuver most cars on the street with ease. Maybe it’s this outside of the box approach that really caused me to really like this car. Read more

AdventureMax H2O. A Rugged, Waterproof Battery Pack from MyCharge

Our phones and tablets get so much use that a regular charge just isn’t enough to last for the whole day. Early chargers didn’t have a lot of capability and are very delicate to use on the go. The new MyCharge AdventureMax H20 Portable Charger 10,050mAh Waterproof Power Bank Rugged External Battery Pack takes care of these problems and then some. It offers rugged construction as well as ease of carry when on the go. Read more

2020 GENESIS G70 A STRONG COMPETITOR IN ‘SMALL’ LUXURY SEDAN FIELD

In the interest of full disclosure, I should state at the start that I have been a fan of South Korean automaker Hyundai’s products for close to 20 years now. We had a good experience with the 2003 Santa Fe SUV we bought, and it worked well for my daughter and son as well.

So that could be seen as influencing my opinion of the new Genesis G70 sedan, which is no longer a Hyundai but a stand-alone entity, much like Lexus is Toyota’s luxury outlet, Acura is Honda’s, and Infiniti is Nissan’s. (Interesting that they are all Asian products.) Read more

NEW PALISADE SUV LOOKS LIKE A WINNER FOR HYUNDAI FOR 2020

The good reception that Hyundai’s earlier ventures into the three-row SUV segment (Santa Fe XL, Veracruz) received never really translated into much of the way of overall success in the market, but that may be changing, and soon.

There’s no guarantee of that, of course, but the 2020 Hyundai Palisade’s combination of good looks and functionality will even appeal to those who customarily browse luxury showrooms. It’s a high-class vehicle! Read more

Welcome! Your Serene Highness

Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic (2019)

I’m sure these exact words will be uttered many times to VIP’s exiting the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic. This large SUV fits this type of passenger perfectly.

Mention Range Rover and most think of the very capable go anywhere off roader, while some immediately think of the ultra-luxurious Range Rovers of today. Regardless, all the Range Rovers are special to drive or be driven in. Placed between the Long-wheel base (LWB) SVAutobiography and the high-performance Range Rover Sport SVR. The SVAutobiography Dynamic is the perfect size for someone that wants more exclusivity than the standard model but doesn’t need the extra space offer with the LWB model which is mainly rear seat roominess Read more
