First drive: 2019 Lada 4×4 Urban in Jordan

Renamed but little changed since it first launched 40 years ago, Lada’s legacy model remains the brand’s defining model as it makes a comeback to Middle East markets. Formerly known as the Niva, the diminutive Lada 4×4 is both precursor to the crossover segment and a highly capable off-roader.

But the Indian-owned British sports car has been growing a little old in the tooth, not even counting the fact that it’s actually based on a shortened XK platform that dates back to 2006.

2020 Audi RS Q8 is a cut-rate Lambo Urus

The Lamborghini Urus is a crazy-fast machine, but it commands a crazy price too. For the ones dazzled by its charm but has not enough dime to shell for it, Lambo’s parent company has come up with another choice. Audi has launched the quickest RS version of their flagship Q8 SUV, dubbed the 2020 Audi RS Q8. It is almost as quick as the Urus but induces a less fatal heart attack with its smaller price tag.
