We just attended a launch event at the Dubai Autodrome, although the car we were there to drive doesn’t really belong on a track . There is a new Kia Cerato in town for the 2019 model year, building on the best qualities of the previous model.
Porsche paints the 2019 Cayenne lineup green with the introduction of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid. The green SUV boasts of an electric-only range of 44 km in the NEDC test.
Despite being a massively preposterous idea, 6-wheeled behemoths of the car world have gained popularity as limited-edition publicity stunts, even with their price tags blown up beyond the horizon. Now to accompany the Mercedes AMG G63 6X6 and the Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6, a yacht company named T.Fotiadis Design has released a 6-wheeled Range Rover SLT model which aims to spice up the “boring” ride.
The Mercedes AMG GT line-up has been growing ever since the first model debuted and caused a stir in the sports car world. But as the years go by, the range is getting diluted, not least of which is by the E-Class-based “four-door coupe.” Customers who wanted a convertible GT still got the real SLS-based chassis, but were confined to the fast AMG GT Roadster or the slightly faster AMG GT C. Now though, they get another one to pick from. Mercedes-Benz slots a new 2019 AMG GT-S Roadster between the standard GT and the GT C.
In its fourth generation, Audi’s flagship model,the A8, is presented with a new design language, a touchscreen operating concept and a systematically electrified drive. The Audi A8 is also the first production automobile in the world to have been developed for conditionally automated driving. Audi will gradually be taking piloted driving functions such as parking pilot, garage pilot and traffic jam pilot into production for the Middle East market once the laws allow for it in this region.
The Polaris Slingshot has graced a middle ground between motorcycles and cars, while being neither of those. Now though, Polaris has added something to a new Polaris Slingshot Grand Touring LE model that inclines it a bit more towards cars — a roof.
When the funky Hyundai Kona was revealed, the Korean manufacturer promised an electric version that’d soon follow it. And here it is. It looks just like its funky fossil fuel burning brother but offers up to 475 km of electric range.
This photo was sent to us by reader Mirza Baig back in December 2017. Back then, it was unclear what this mystery crossover could be. It was confusing to pinpoint what it was, because VW is busy launching a barrage of crossovers, from the Teramont to the T-Roc, with the Tiguan and the Touareg in between. But in March, Volkswagen also showed a model called the VW Atlas Cross Sport Concept, which is essentially what the prototype hot-weather testing in Dubai looks like.
Hard to believe, but our 2008 Jaguar XK is a decade old now. I’d say we’ve kept it cleaner than most, even though we simply park it outside all the time and service it once a year. Real premium cars (not the rebadged stuff from mainstream carmakers) are generally built with better materials, so they last longer in terms of trim and leather (but not always mechanically). However, our Jag needed a bit of care to keep it looking fresh.
Hot hatches are a magical blend of useable performance and practicality. Their popularity has led manufacturers to come up with hot variants of their different hatchbacks. VW, for instance, had several hot variants of their Polo and larger Golf hatchbacks. And now, they’ve slotted a new hot version under them and this time, it’s their puny little Up! hatchback that gets the treatment.
