The G-Wagon is soon to be revealed. Mercedes-Benz first introduced the G-Wagon in 1979. Since then, there was no second generation of the G-Wagon. Instead, a continuous facelift was preferred. Therefore custom updates can bring a 1979-model into a 2017-model look with minor alternations in the exterior design.
Despite the retro-classic design, the G-Wagon was the most outdated Mercedes-Benz vehicle in their product range, and the engineers did not have an opportunity to apply the latest forms of driving assistance and semi-autonomous systems to the G-Wagon. In addition, the G-Wagon was designed during an era in which fuel efficiency was not the main concern. Therefore, the G-Wagon is not a very competitive in terms of fuel consumption vehicle when compared with the other luxury SUVs.
What was not anticipated was the super cool market [...]
Land Rover recently revealed the facelift version of the Range Rover with a tagline ‘Silent Luxury’. Some people might consider the existing Range Rover to be still brand new. However, it is five years since it was revealed. The timing of this facelift is perfect in terms of keeping up with the competition.
This time, Land Rover promoted the Range Rover with a unique slogan – Silent Luxury. This slogan emphasises the plug-in hybrid version of the Range Rover that was the main focal point of the recent press day. In addition, Range Rover’s latest competitor, the Bentley Bentayga, still doesn’t offer a hybrid or an electric power train. Therefore, it does make sense for Land Rover to focus on its hybrid technology.
The new Range Rover offers a wide range of colours and features. The [...]
The fourth generation Audi A8 has been revealed recently. Ever since Audi introduced the A8 in competition with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW 7-Series, it has been running second to these strong competitors. Despite having the Quattro drive train and an aluminium spaceframe, the A8 never managed to properly gain traction in terms of the competition.
However, the situation has now changed! This time, the A8 is a game changer with the introduction of the latest technologies. In particular, the new A8 has seen the introduction of Artificial Intelligence and the latest machine learning technologies. Thanks to AI, the Audi A8 can offer a level-3 autonomous driving system up to 37 mph (60 kph). Level-3 autonomous driving means that the driver can do other things whilst the car is in control of everything. The [...]

The current Bentley Continental GT was revealed in 2003, based on the VW Phaeton platform. At that time, the Continental GT was a ground-breaking car with an all-wheel drive system, a W12 engine, and air suspension as some of the unique features. In 2003, the Continental GT was the only GT Coupe with such features. In addition, it was a new era for the Bentley, and the Continental GT grabbed the attention of a younger audience and dropped the average age of Bentley customers. The connection between the Phaeton and the Continental were more than just one of platform sharing. Many of the state of the art technologies of the Phaeton were transferred to the Continental.
