So we got a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali

2017-GMC-Acadia-Denali-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali  The previous GMC Acadia was an odd one. Essentially a minivan in functionality, but disguised as an SUV, the Acadia was actually more practical and spacious inside than the Yukon. Read More >>

2017-MG-GS-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 MG GS 4WD  Morris Garages, the well-known (in Europe at least) British brand that’s best known for making little sports cars back in the day and hopped-up Rover-based sedans most recently before they shut shop. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Toyota Fortuner

2017-Toyota-Fortuner-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Toyota Fortuner  When the all-new Toyota Fortuner debuted a year ago, it created waves with its new-age styling that still somehow looked like a tough offroader (unless, say, the poor attempt that is the new Land Rover Discovery).

So we got a 2017 Ford Edge Sport

2017-Ford-Edge-Sport-600x450 So we got a 2017 Ford Edge Sport  The Ford Edge Sport has been around since late last year, as the top dog in the redesigned Edge line-up. While we did drive the regular Edge Titanium in Jordan in 2016, the Sport is an entirely different beast. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR

2017-Jaguar-F-Type-SVR-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR  If you look beyond the hype, the Jaguar F-Type isn’t anything ground-breaking when it comes to sports cars. Based off of a decade-old chassis with carryover engines, its claim to fame was always the noise rather than the dynamics, at least when compared to various rivals. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Geely Emgrand X7 Sport

2017-Geely-Emgrand-X7-Sport-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Geely Emgrand X7 Sport  The name doesn’t quite roll off the tongue, but then again, most car names don’t nowadays. The Geely Emgrand X7 Sport is the latest player from China to take on the Middle East crossover market. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Bentley Bentayga (video)

2017-Bentley-Bentayga-in-the-UAE-13-600x450 So we got a 2017 Bentley Bentayga (video)  We’ve been following the development of the Bentley Bentayga quite closely. We saw it up close in concept form, with that much-derided front-end. We saw it in its world debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, where we saw its famous Breitling dash-clock option that costs as much as the car. Read More >>

So we got a 2017 Volkswagen Passat

2017-Volkswagen-Passat-Sport-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Volkswagen Passat  The American-built VW Passat got a minor facelift last year, having been on the market since 2012. We thought it’d have a bigger impact on the midsize sedan scene, given that it easily has the most cabin space in this segment, but key features were missing that may have caused it to become an also-ran.

So we got a 2017 Renault Koleos

2017-Renault-Koleos-in-the-UAE-600x450 So we got a 2017 Renault Koleos  It’s amazing that the previous-generation Renault Koleos ran for almost a decade with only minor changes. In the fast-paced crossover segment, that’s an eternity. However, it looks like the new model was worth the wait, as the Koleos seems to be reaching for the stars in the entry-level luxury segment now. Read More >>

Now that they’re here, we took a spin in both the V6 and I4 versions to see if the changes are more than skin-deep. Read More >>
