Jaguar XFL revealed for chauffeur-driven Chinese market

The Chinese market's obsession with rear comfort continues, with Jaguar unveiling its stretched XF sedan for the Beijing motor show, called the XFL. As with many models of its type, the XFL is largely identical to the standard XF, with the exception of the increased length and stretched rear doors...

What makes a luxury car?

What exactly is 'luxury' and what exactly makes a luxury car? These are some of the hardest questions in the automotive world to answer. Is it all about the brand? The technology? Features? Price? Heritage? It’s nearly impossible to define where a mainstream car becomes luxury or vice versa...

BMW 'i' brand: initial Australian response 'almost overwhelming'

The response by Australian buyers to the BMW ‘i’ sub-brand has been profoundly positive, with the German brand's local head revealing it all but underestimated local demand. Speaking to CarAdvice at the launch of the new BMW M2 at Targa Tasmania this week, BMW Australia CEO Mark Werner said the response to BMW’s first foray into a standalone electrified sub-brand has been a local and global sales success...

2017 Mercedes-Benz E400 4Matic Review: Track test

“Just follow me yah, and we have some fun”, crackled the Mercedes-Benz driving instructor over the radio. I couldn’t take him all too seriously though, as he looked (and sounded) like the German nuclear consortium representative on The Simpsons, and I was easing out on to the circuit in a somewhat regular-looking sedan and not some AMG-branded explosive device...

Road trip: New York City

When you think of ultimate driving destinations, New York City is probably one of the last places to come to mind. Anyone who has been to the Big Apple, or even seen it on television, will probably know that even in a taxi it can be an extremely frustrating experience: the traffic is deadly, and stop-start cues can last for hours...

2016 Bentley Bentayga 0-100-0 acceleration test

Read the article here. The Bentley Bentayga is said to be the fastest SUV on the market. We wanted to see just how fast, so set up an acceleration and brake test of the 2.5-tonne SUV. Starting from a standstill, we accelerate to 100mph (160km/h) and brake back to a halt. For context a Lotus Exige S can do it in 16.6 seconds and a Bugatti Veyron in 9...

Volvo XC90 Excellence under consideration for Australia

A high-end, even more luxurious version of the Volvo XC90 appears to be on the cards for Australia. The local arm of the Chinese-owned Swedish brand has confirmed it is considering adding the Volvo XC90 Excellence to its ranks as a flagship model for the range, which currently tops out with the XC90 T8 R-Design plug-in hybrid model at $122,950 plus on-road costs...

Cadillac planning ultra-luxe Bentley rivals beyond 2020 - report

General Motors’ premium arm Cadillac is preparing a super-luxury SUV and sedan pair to rival the likes of Bentley by the end of the next decade, according to a new report. Following the release of the opulent Bentley Bentayga, along with its upcoming competition in the Aston Martin DBX, Lamborghini Urus and Rolls Royce SUV, Cadillac is reportedly planning its own player in the ultra-luxe SUV segment...

Mercedes-Benz GLC convertible was under consideration in the product planning stage

With the launch of the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe – an SUV the brand calls its sportiest model yet – there’s probably good reason that buyers might expect other, even sportier derivatives. It is arguable that nothing is sportier than a convertible...

BMW X7 to get four-seater flagship model, small X2 in the works - report

The upcoming 2018 BMW X7 large SUV is set to spawn an ultra-luxurious four-seater flagship model, according to reports. In the moments after the X7 was teased at BMW’s annual press conference just over a week ago, brand sales boss Ian Robertson reportedly let slip that the regular seven-seat model will be joined by an uber-premium, four-seater limo-style flagship...

Mercedes-Maybach to add large SUV to its ranks, E-Class version ruled out

It appears an even-money bet that the ultra-luxury brand Mercedes-Maybach will add an SUV to its ranks in the future, but there won't be an E-Class Maybach variant despite persistent rumours. The only Mercedes-Maybach models currently on sale are the Mercedes-Maybach S600 and the even lengthier Pullman version, but with SUVs proving lucrative, the range is almost certain to expand to include a high-riding, long-wheelbase, ultra-luxury vehicle of that type...

2016 BMW 750Li Review

Read the article here. Cast your mind back almost 20 years to the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Pierce Brosnan drove an E38 BMW 750iL from the back seat to its eventual destruction. While the modern Bond once again has a penchant for British cars, the sixth generation BMW 7 Series in 750i and 750Li is the definition of luxury and performance for the brand...

2016 McLaren 570GT debuts in Australia

McLaren has used the 2016 Australian Formula One Grand Prix to locally unveil the McLaren 570GT, the company's latest mid-engined sports car. Based on the McLaren 570S, the 570GT starts at $438,000 driveaway and aims to offers buyers a slightly more practical approach to fast motoring.

2016 Bentley Bentayga Track Review and Performance Test

So powerful is the new 2016 Bentley Bentayga SUV, that the only place we could experience its true performance was at a racetrack. As part of the car’s Australian unveiling, Bentley arranged for us to do a few laps of Sandown Raceway near Melbourne where we could get a feeling for how the ‘fastest SUV in the world’ would perform on local shores...

2016 Audi A4 Review : 2.0 TFSI Quattro

This is the 2016 Audi A4, and I know what you’re thinking: it looks just like the 2015 Audi A4. And you’d be right, except for one thing: it’s 90% new, so while the outside might be evolutionary, the rest of the car is revolutionary. The ninth-generation of Audi’s mid-size executive car sports the latest corporate look, and is slightly longer and wider than the car it replaces...
