It is really fascinating to see how the guys over at Car and Driver spend their day, aside from getting the chance to drive some nice cars and write a review, this time they got three of the best car in their segment, of course they are all German, and put the against each other for a ferocious bullfight. As may know, the E63 is the best E-class so far, and it really shows in this test, not only have they fixed the little problems that the C&D tester had last year, but they created a monster conceiled under a beautiful skin. I don’t want to reveal anything, so go… Continue Reading »

This has to be the biggest and most exciting test done by Autobild or any other magazine. They have brought together every AMG model available currently for a comparison test that will be remembered for decades, I mean when will they do this again, not any time soon. The car’s power ranges from 360hp to 612hp and the price goes from as little as 65.986 Euro for the C55 to 211.761 Euro for the S65. The spectacle that Autobild has created with 16 AMG models would cost one 1.843.077 Euro if they were to buy every single model. Here is the translated Autobild site, unfortunately one has to pay to… Continue Reading »
We’ve seen many of these tests, but I am not sure if they were so large and extensive. Nevertheless, a great comparison test by Car and Driver that will leave you speechless, and I don’t mean about the top results, but the bottom ones. It will be surprising to some, but probably not for others. Head over to Car and Driver to read the full review. Here is a brief description of each cars good and bad parts. 2007 Lexus LS460L Highs: Tranquil environment, flawless finish, comprehensive standard luxury equipment. Lows: Soft in roll, squishy tires, small trunk, long stopping distances. The Verdict: May be the most indulgent luxury car… Continue Reading »
A week ago, I posted a video made by MSN Cars in the UK, where they compared the Mercedes GL, Audi Q7 and Range Rover V8. It seems that the Germans have seen the video somewhere (possibly here), and have thought to themselves, “Das kann ja wohl nicht wahr sein” or a rough translation “That can’t possibly be true.” Well similar to the Germans (or Autobild at least) I thought the same thing, unfortunately I don’t have the resources to test and see if MSN Cars was correct. Autobild chose to do it for me , but only selected the GL and the TDV8 to be tested, and not the… Continue Reading »
MSN Cars group compared the Mercedes-Benz GL 420 CDI, Audi Q7 3.0 TDI, and Range Rover 3.6 V8 diesel, and while I do like the latest Land Rover models, I can hardly believe that it is ahead of Mercedes or the stunning Q7. Have a look and judge for yourself.
Audi may have had the exclusivity for over 25 years with its all wheel drive, but unfortunately, that exclusivity is virtually gone with the introduction of the 4Matic system for Mercedes. The new S-class 4Matic was put to the test against the more “experienced” Audi A8 quattro. Go to Autobild to read the whole comparison test, or scroll down for the result. Not only is the S-class the winner because of the amazingly good all-wheel drive, but it can do nearly everything better than the Audi. It offers more space, accelerates faster, is more comfortable and brakes better. The hour of the A8 strikes with engaged driving fashion. The sporty… Continue Reading »
