  • 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe

    Car companies are in the business of selling sex by way of sheet metal and petroleum (or electrons), and one way they've found to getting you all hot and bothered is by using the word "coupe." In this new and sometimes alarming world, a vehicle can be any body style at all and still be called a coupe. Sedan, SUV, one day maybe even a minivan—just call it a "coupe" and it automagically becomes sleeker and more desirable, a must-have. A coupe, by way of reminder, is a two-door, short-roof version of an existing sedan. Above is the new Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. Though it has a low roofline...

    10 things you won't like inside new cars

    New cars are like playgrounds for adults. There are many exciting places to explore and crawl around, but like a hot slide in July, not all of them are great. No matter the price, some cars just don't come standard with common sense. Here's a short list of things we could do without in our new...

    2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R: 9 things that get completely out of hand

    If you thought the Mercedes-AMG GT was already out of bounds--like, Guy Fieri out of bounds--the newly debuted AMG GT R must seem completely out of hand.

    8 things that make a Jaguar F-Type an SVR

    What's in an acronym? In the case of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR, it's not just a pretty face and a $126,945 price tag. As it does with the gutsy Range Rover Sport SVR, Jaguar Land Rover doesn't spare much in the mission to give those letters real meaning. That meaning: pretty obvious. SVR stands...

    The quick and the dead: 10 cars that were (sometimes mercifully) axed fast

  • 2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 Wagon

    Mercedes-Benz on Monday took the covers off its new E-Class Wagon. It goes on sale early next year but one particular version, the Mercedes-AMG E43 Wagon, isn’t coming our way. The E43 is one of Mercedes-AMG’s new “43” series cars designed to fill the gap between the top Mercedes models and the tuner’s own dedicated performance offerings. In the case of the E43, you get a 396-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 under the hood and a rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. Fortunately, we’re still getting the regular E-Class Wagon as well as the...
