First drive: 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio in the UAE

After creating quite the hype with the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, we weren’t exactly sure what to expect from the Stelvio Quadrifoglio – the performance version of their first SUV – since we haven’t driven the Giulia QV. The Italians also called it the fastest SUV ever, having recorded a blistering 7-minute 51.7-second lap time at the Nurburgring. The global debut was actually held right here in Ras Al Khaimah, so we got a chance to take the Stelvio QV on one of the best roads in the UAE, up and down the Jebel Jais in Ras Al Khaimah, which is also the highest point in the Emirates.

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class redesign debuts

2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class redesign debuts

The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, when it was released for the first time, was a groundbreaking product in terms of its design. It combined the practicality of a sedan and the swooping lines of a coupe in a stylish package that spawned the “four-door coupe” marketing term and several copycats. And now, two generations have passed by, so the time is ripe for an overhauled CLS. Enter the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, sporting new corporate styling cues that are at odds with the carryover shape of the car.

So we got a 2017 Ford Mustang GT California Special

The updated 2018 Ford Mustang is almost upon us, with a droopier front-end and a radical list of mechanical updates. That’s not to say the existing Mustang is to be scoffed at. While it may not have topped many categories in our exclusive muscle-car comparo, we contend that it is still a great daily-driver, as we found out when we drove the GT California Special earlier this year, both in coupe and convertible forms.

Lamborghini Urus revealed as world's fastest SUV

Lamborghini Urus revealed as world’s fastest SUV

The name Lamborghini has always been synonymous with brash designs and high performance. The low-slung supercars that constituted the Italian marque’s lineup appealed to most people. But once, there existed an SUV, the rather forgettable LM002 from Lamborghini that combined the powerplant of the Countach with a high-riding body to spawn their first production off-road vehicle. And now, Lamborghini has added another chapter to the same book with the release of their new SUV, Urus.

Skoda Karoq crossover debuts

Skoda Karoq crossover debuts

After the awkward Skoda Yeti was cancelled, the Skoda lineup was missing a small crossover to act as a smaller brother for the Kodiaq. And that’s exactly what they create with the all-new Skoda Karoq crossover, unwrapped at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Karoq is a sister model to the Seat Ateca and the VW Tiguan. The design language is similar to the one flaunted by its bigger brother, the Kodiaq albeit with minor changes. The design of the headlights and tail light are new and more squared on the Karoq. Like most Skodas, the Karoq offers decent space inside the cabin,
