A test drive, to say the least, should suffice to make you consider it in your short shopping list. Well, for one, it is well-rounded in nature thanks to its combination of high-performance, comfort, and tons of convenience and entertainment features.

Again, you get a steadfast high-speed stability, a huge list of features, potent and fuel-sipping engines, and a lux interior.

Sporty Nature

More often than not, the “sport” portion of the SUV is quietly ignored and left to wither, while more emphasis is offered for the “utility” part. While we can’t confidently say that the BMW X5 offers a sporty driving feel the same way a sporty car would offer, it manages to integrate the sportiness virtue in its more dynamic road feel character.

The result is a vehicle that handles and steers around corners with precision, greater than what you can find on the rest of its class. Those who crave for an even crazier performance can check out the 2017 BMW X5 M. The “M” treatment offers the distinction. Its review is however offered elsewhere on our blog.

Actual Performance

When we come to the performance, the 2017 BMW X5 xDrive50i offers a 4.4L turbocharged engine behemoth that puts out an incredible output that BMW estimates to be around a walloping 445 horsepower. 0-60 mph takes a blistering 4.7 seconds – an impressive acceleration considering it seats up to five people. The X5 M – the higher performance version – takes the performance to a whole new level with its 0-60 mph taking sub-4 seconds thanks to the 567-horsepower offered beneath its skin.

In addition to the added horsepower, the “M” treatment offers, the X5 M also distinguishes itself with features such as unique exterior trim, an adaptive sport suspension system, 21-inch wheels, massive breaks, and body roll control. Taking into consideration that it is a people hauler, there’re a few downsides however. They include a very sensitive gas pedal, a stiff ride quality, and lack of third-row seating available on the X5 model. But then again, no other vehicle in this neck of the woods offers three rows of seating. Rival that take on the BMW X5 2017 include the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Do We Have A Release Date For 2017 BMW X5?

Multiple sources say the updated BMW X5 release date should be expected sometime in the spring of 2017, although it is speculative. The price starts from an MSRP of around $54,700.

2017 BMW X6 The Only News You Need

Despite falling a bit short in terms of utility, the new 2017 BMW X6 is engaging to drive and is seen as a cross between a high-end coupe and an SUV. Some of the highlights that define it include a comfortable and whisper-quiet ride quality, potent engines, ample storage, and a top-quality interior laden with upscale material and technologies.

The BMW X6 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017 for the USA market.

Quick Summary

According to BMW, several updates and changes should be expected to sport the new X6 especially on its interior and exterior facets. Performance wise, however, the new model remains pretty much the same with the same power and torque as before.

2017 BMW X6 exterior, rear view, taillights and badges

Some might argue that the BMW X6 was arguably the first vehicle that changed the way SUVs work in relation to utility. A while ago, crossover SUVs were meant to haul both people and cargo, were-boxy-looking, and had larger dimensions. Now in its second-generation, the X6, redefined the whole concept but falls short in its fundamental aspect – utility. This is quite apparent especially if you want to bring pets or pets along.

Good Things Last Long

Despite these apparent shortcomings, there’s still nothing like it on the market. It is downright athletic, and boasts of a daring exterior design. The lack of ample roomy interior accommodations can be attributed to the sloping roof line, which cuts substantial headroom especially for the backseat passengers.

2017 BMW X6 exterior, side view, alloy wheels

Breathtaking Interior And Even Better Performance

BMW says the reason it increased the rows to a maximum of three was because of customer demand. This tells you that the BMW X6 is an appealing and compelling crossover, its downsides notwithstanding. To wit, the 2017 BMW X6 interior furnishings are simply breathtakingly appealing, as are its performance specs.

This is where even the owners of the basic model get to say “awesome” whenever they’re pressing their gas pedals. Opting for the 2017 BMW X6 M model ups the ante to even more soaring levels.

Possible Alternatives

But the BMW X6 2017 isn’t the only vehicle that has received refreshments in its class. Other alternatives worth your while include the similarly appealing Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe. It is flattery, elegant, sophisticated, and undoubtedly a performance mogul on its own right. Apart from the GLE-Class Coupe, other outstanding vehicles in its class include the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Audi A7, Porsche Cayenne, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe

For those eager to get the new 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, it goes for sale sometime in early 2017 according to latest info reaching our news desk. But for those who’re keen on the details first and available market options, they’ll undoubtedly find this review helpful and objective. So have a seat and enjoy the review piece.

Short Summary

For starters there are some who are quick to dismiss the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. It owes that to its lack of name recognition, however there are several reasons as to why you should seriously consider it. Mostly thanks to the myriad of strengths it has. To start with, it comes with plenty of standard features such as LED daytime running lights, satellite radio, a dual-zone automatic climate control, alloy wheels, and a brawny engine.

Updated Sections are…

In addition, it also comes with several improvements to its LED lighting signatures, exterior design, and a boatload of new technologies for its safety, comfort, and infotainment areas. According to Hyundai, 25% – or better yet 350 individual parts – of the Hyundai Santa Fe have been updated over the existing model.

Safety for one, is one area that Hyundai doesn’t take lightly. Some of the standard systems available on the new model include brake assist, driver’s knee airbag, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, tire pressure monitoring, downhill brake control, hill start assist control, and traction control. So there you have it, with all these features available, there’s no doubt that the vehicle will rank amongst the best when it comes to keeping its occupants secure.

Blue Link

Another plus for the Santa Fe is the availability of the next-generation Blue Link system. The system provides a suite of diagnostic and connected safety features, and is available by default on the Santa Fe and optionally for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Some of the features it bundles include destination search, stolen vehicle notification, remote start with climate control, POI we search, and remote door lock/unlock.

Possible Alternatives

For those who are not yet sold out on the Hyundai Santa Fe 2017 highlights, there’re a couple of other viable options that rival its establishment. Some of these include the Mazda CX-9, Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse, and the perennial market honcho – the 2017 Toyota Highlander. But even in the face of such an apparent solid competition, we still think the Hyundai Santa Fe 2017 is worth some consideration especially considering its generous warranty coverage, easy-to-use technology interfaces, quick acceleration, classy cabin design, and value for money.

Is There A Known Release Date Or A Price For The New 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe?

When it comes to the price and release date of the vehicle, Hyundai says buyers should expect to be set back by an MSRP starting from as low as $32,250 for the Santa Fe SE, and as much as $40,450 for the top-of-the-line Santa Fe Ultimate SUV. Leasing is of course an option. The New Santa Fe was released in February 2016.

Any Updates On The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Exterior?

The new model’s exterior is by and large a carry-over from the existing model except for the minor tweaks on its headlights, front bumper, and taillights. Some of the features conspicuously present include LED headlight accents, body-color heated exterior mirrors, automatic headlights, a hands-free power liftgate, 18-inch alloy wheels for the Santa Fe SE, a dark-tinted rear privacy glass, roof rack side rails, and 19-inch wheels for the Santa Fe Limited and Ultimate models.

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Interior Updates?

Life aboard the vehicle is comfortable and stylish. Its combination of intuitive layout of controls, functional and attractive design with top-notch materials arguably deserves a standing ovation even from cynics. The first and second rows of seats are comfortable and offer a wide range of adjustability especially for the front seats. However, the same cannot be said of the third-row seats, as the space is tight for adults. Other competitors are well-suited in this regard.

Available Trims

Four trims are offered for the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe: Limited, Limited Ultimate, SE, and SE Ultimate. The Santa Fe Sport 2.0L Turbo review for 2017 is offered elsewhere on our blog.

Engine Specs

A 290-horsepower – generating 3.3L V6 engine is available across board. The FWD models’ fuel economy stands at 21 mpg in combined city/highway cruising. 0-60 mph takes 7.7 seconds, and the towing capacity for a generously equipped model stands at 5,000 lbs.

As already mentioned, the new model will come with top-notch safety systems. Some of these systems include blind-spot monitor, rear-cross traffic alerts, rear parking sensors, Hyundai’s emergency telematics, side curtain airbags, front seat side airbags, antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, frontal mitigation system, and a lane-departure warning system. Unsurprisingly, NHTSA gave the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe a five out five star rating for overall crash impact safety protection.

New 2017 BMW M4 – Release Date and Review

2017 BMW M4 is a freshened model of the previous year’s model. For 2017, the latest model comes with a myriad of new changes and improvements that the automaker hopes will help revitalize the M4. Bu even in its current form, the new model is still a pace setter in its class courtesy of features such as a potent engine, a well-equipped interior, a sharp and responsive handling and steering, a laudable ride quality, and stout brakes that bring it to halt in a couple of seconds.

Lack Of Originality Is Not A Problem For The BMW

There’s no denying the fact that the automotive segment has grown in leaps and bounds over the last couple of decades. This has resulted in a significant rise in the number of vehicles being offered for sale every year. Traditional market leaders and new entrants alike have hard to constantly innovate and come up with exclusive ideas that can result in making their vehicles retain their competitive edge.

But even with such an inhospitable competition mounted by its peers, BMW seems to be unperturbed judging by its meteoric rise in the number of vehicles sold each year. In this context, the new 2017 BMW M4 is the perfect illustration of how well an automaker can build a high-performance luxury coupe and convertible with minimal or no concessions at all. For starters, the new BMW M4 is a high-performance version of the BMW 4 Series.

What Is It All About?

The “M” is the distinction between the two models and features a 425-hp – generating turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine that mates to a slick-shifting six-speed manual or an M-DCT. With all this power under its belt, expect a 0-60 mph acceleration in just under 4.0 seconds.

2017 BMW M4 front angle, headlights and grille

Other components that draw the line of distinction between the regular 4 Series and the BMW M model include carbon-ceramic brakes, aluminum suspension underpinnings, staggered-width 18-inch wheels, sportier carbon-fiber trim, and active rear differential. Again, the BMW M4 2017 boasts of nicer interior materials, and M logo badging. Performance wise, you’ll notice that the M4 brakes hard, corners tenaciously, and accelerates ferociously.

The bottom line is the 2017 BMW M4. It is a cool car that arguably deserves your attention especially if you’re shopping for a race-ready sports car. Well, we’d be lying if we said the M4 is the only fine choice available, in stark contrast however, the segment is home to tons of other great choices. These include the Lexus RC F, Ford Shelby GT350 Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette, and the rakishly-styled Mercedes-Benz AMG C-Class Coupe.

When Is The 2017 BMW M4 Going To Be Released And For How Much?

According to some whispers in the four-passenger high-performance segment, the new BMW M4 release date should be expected sometime in the second half of 2017. Price details are still under wraps as it is too early to start speculation, but this hasn’t stopped some of the finest industry’s pundits from offering the possibilities. One such theory that makes better sense intimates that the BMW M4 price will start from around $65,700. Leasing is available too.

2017 BMW M4 Exterior Changed Mostly In Color

2017 BMW M4 exterior, silver color, headlights and alloy wheels

The exterior hasn’t changed a bit apart from the several paint colors that are rumored to be added to the existing color palette. Otherwise, the exterior profile remains pretty much the same as that of the previous model. Some of the features to expect include exclusive exterior body panels, a sport-tuned suspension system, eighteen-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, and a sport body kit.

Total Rework Of The 2017 BMW M4 Interior

The interior has been reworked and now appears better and more refined than that of the model it is replacing. Don’t get us wrong however, as the current model’s interior is still a masterpiece by conventional standards. Accessories to expect include a dual-zone automatic climate control, driver memory settings, an 8.8-inch central display screen, Bluetooth connectivity, a heated 10-way power front seats, and smartphone app connectivity.

Packages available include the Executive, Lighting, Driver Assistance, and the Competition package.

Facts And Rumors About The New 2017 Dodge Ram

Courtesy of the winning combination of a well-trimmed cabin, combination of strong powertrains, and a smooth ride quality, the new 2017 Dodge RAM will definitely be a top-contender in its class. Some of the highlights that define the newest model include useful technology features, an eight-speed automatic transmission system, a fuel-efficient diesel V6, and cabin refinement.

The Dodge RAM release date should be expected sometime in mid-2017.

Review In Short

In addition to the dizzying trim levels offered, the new model also comes with three body styles and models. As before, it will be available in three distinct models: 1500, 2500, and the heavy-duty, no-nonsense 3500. Each is available with several trims each offering distinct features and output figures.

Interior Got New Materials?

For 2017, the Dodge RAM interior is stuffed with some of the latest technologies and soft-touch materials, which Dodge says will make up for the conspicuously absent newness. Over the past couple of years, pickup trucks in this segment have seen quite a substantial makeover that has touched almost every nitty-gritty aspects.

Smooth Drive

One feature that is almost always synonymous with any Dodge RAM truck is smoothness in normal driving situations. This, Dodge says, is courtesy of clever engineering that has seen its pickup trucks adopt the coil-spring rear suspension system as opposed to the typical leaf-spring setup.  The result is that the Dodge pickups can comfortable cruise on any pavement regardless of the condition. Throw in the optional air suspension system and you’ve got enough reasons to get one for yourself.

The changes are ostensibly minimal. However, new additions to the existing color palette should be expected. More storage areas and minor trim tweaks are also rumored to be available.

There Are Alternatives If You Don’t Like It

Although the Dodge RAM is appealing on its own especially considering the options available, there are a number of other pickup trucks available. These include the 2017 Nissan Titan XD, the Ford F-150, and the Chevrolet Silverado. Another option would be the Toyota Tundra.

What Are The Trim Levels For The New 2017 Dodge Ram?

As already mentioned above, the new Dodge RAM is available in dizzying options including the 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks, all of which come with different trim models. The 2017 Dodge RAM Power Wagon model is offered under a separate review, as is the Hellcat as well.

Honda’s Revival – New 2017 Honda Civic – Release Date and Review

Returning to its true form with a spacious and technology filled interior, daring looks, turbocharged power, satisfying handling, safety technologies, advanced infotainment system, powerful and fuel-efficient turbocharged engine is none other than the 2017 Honda Civic. Its release date should be expected anytime in the first half of 2017.

Redesign Was Necessary

There is no point in denying the fact that the previous generation of the Civic that ran for five years got some dull early reviews and controversy characteristic for Honda, which eventually led to its overhaul in the second year. Although the Civic nameplate became more competitive, it is obvious that its appeal also declined. And therefore, it no-longer retained its compelling nature anymore particularly with its rivals going forward in lightning speed.

Something Changed In The Air…

However, for Honda fans, the new 2017 Honda Civic is profoundly improved and comes with several changes that should come as a relief. Its innovative spirit has been revived by its user-friendly touchscreen interface, mature cabin, and its neat sporty exterior.

Under the hood, the base engine generates a healthy 158 horsepower and returns an exceptional fuel economy rating of 40 mpg in the highway. For those looking for more speed, there is the turbocharged mill that generates a cool 174 horsepower and 162 pounds-ft. of torque.

Similar to the best Civics of the time long past, the newest Civic offers an appealing fun-to-drive character thanks to the sporty handling. Even at speed, you can hardy hear any wind, sound of tires, or road noise, and, unlike in previous models, its ride quality is very satisfying.

Quite often, we take Civic’s “spacious interior accommodations” with a dose of skepticism, however, the 2017 model walks the talk and some consumers might actually question the need for an Accord given the Civic offers so much interior space.

Are There Any Other Trim Levels?

For those who don’t mind spending extra, the top-of-the-line Civic Touring offers Acura-grade refinement and premium materials. But even in its basic form, the new Civic still offers comfortable and laudable materials.

Are There Any Alternatives?

And if you consider the 2017 Honda Civic as an appealing car, there are other lots of great choices lined up for next year. They include the “A” rated Mazda 3 2017, Kia Forte for 2017, 2017 Ford Focus, and the Chevrolet Cruz.

Now, the exterior Chevy impala colors include Pepperdust Metallic, and Arctic Blue Metallic. Otherwise, the Impala remains unaltered from the existing model in terms of sereneness and rewarding ride quality, excellent crash test scores, a feature-rich cabin, a satisfying V6 engine, and a big backseat and trunk.

Well, if you asked the Impala sedan lovers the reason why they fancy it, they’d probably tell you it’s because the Impala undoubtedly has the big-car basics down, what with its voluptuous trunk, smooth ride, and roomy interior accommodations. Furthermore, its technologies are some of the things that endear many to the Impala. Some of these include an eight-inch, crisp infotainment system that offers faster response times, adaptive cruise control, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a host of driver aids (blind-spot monitoring with rear-cross traffic alert, forward collision alert, lane-departure warning, and  a 360-degree camera).

Inasmuch as the Impala is seemingly a great option for anyone shopping in this class, there are other notable vehicles that parallel or even better what the Impala offers. Some of these include the “A” rated Toyota Avalon, Kia Cadenza, Chrysler 300, and the Hyundai Azera.

The 2017 Kia Cadenza release date is expected before the fall of this year as a 2017 year model. It is offered with a price starting from an MSRP of $37,000. Some of the Kia Cadenza redesigns include a new, sleek interior design that brings with it a plethora of changes and updates. It compares similar to what we saw in the 2017 Kia Sportage Interior which is adorned with metal accents and soft-touch materials.

The 2017 Chrysler 300 sedan price starts from an MSRP of around $32,015 and for that amount it gives you an exceptionally supple ride, an available all-wheel drive, upscale cabin, strong V8 power, a satisfying audio and technology systems, and a premium appeal. News has it that the Chrysler 300 color palette is going to be refreshed as well, but we’ll have to wait for its release date to know in totality what changes it offers.

News And Rumors About The New 2017 Audi A4

Short Review

In the entry-level luxury sedan segment, the A4 is considered as the elder statesman, as it shares the same platform with the existing generation model which debuted seven years ago. Without a doubt, a closer observation of the A4 specs sheet will hint to you that time has taken a toll on it. For instance, unlike most of its stablemates, the new model doesn’t offer a diesel powerplant which is thriftier at the pump.

Quiet And Comfortable

Gratefully, there are plenty of appealing features and technologies available on the A4 that has always been tantamount to any A4 that has ever debuted on the market. Therefore, just as before, the ride quality is compliant, quiet, and comfortable. Throw in the all-wheel drive system and you’ve got yourself an excellent vehicle that not only offers additional grip whilst on the move but is also downright athletic.

The MMI infotainment system is responsive and crisp and features well-laid audio and climate controls. Another defining hallmark of the A4 is its spacious cabin. It provides ample leg- and headroom even for adult occupants on its back. Exterior wise, the styling is downright retrained.

Better Than The Alternatives?

There is no doubt that despite its age, the A4 is still a formidable force in its class and even fresher alternatives will have to brace up for a bruising battle. Usual rivals in this segment include Lexus IS 200t, BMW 3 Series, Cadillac ATS, and Acura TLX. The Infiniti Q50 is yet another prime suspect.

Name Changer – The 2017 Hyundai Genesis G80

Before we get carried away, here’s the news: The Hyundai Genesis will no longer be available for 2017 and instead it has been replaced by what Hyundai refers to – 2017 Genesis G80. So there you have it, folks! The Hyundai Genesis nameplate apparently made its last run last year as a 2016 year model. The changes don’t, however, stop there, as what was fondly referred to as Hyundai Equus sedan has also been replaced by the fresh 2017 Genesis G90.

So for 2017, in we have the 2017 Genesis G80 and the Genesis G90, and out we have the Hyundai Genesis and the Hyundai Equus. The following review is therefore for the 2017 Genesis G80 – Hyundai Genesis successor. Details pertaining to its release date and price are also covered.

Lots To Offer

The Genesis G80 offers lots of value and challenges the establishment of brands such as the Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, BMW, and Audi. It boasts of features such as a voluminous rear-seat space, elegant interior design and materials, better warranty than competitors, easy-to-use controls, and a hushed cabin.

Having tested the waters with the top-of-the-trim Equus – which is now the full-size Genesis G90 flagship sedan – Hyundai is again at it with new Genesis G80. The new model will fit perfectly into the midsize sport-luxury class, where other top-dogs such as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Lexus GS, BMW 5 Series, and the Audi A6 reign.

Expect Refinement?

Some of the features that we expect the new 2017 Genesis G80 to come with include a hands-free “smart” trunk, an eight-inch touchscreen display. Leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, Bluetooth connectivity, and 18/19-inch alloy wheels. Others include a lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors, a heated steering wheel, and autonomous emergency braking.

According to Hyundai, the new model is expected to deliver an unprecedented combination of segment-leading safety features, human-focused technology, and a refined performance.

2017 Genesis G80 Release Date & Price

The new Genesis G80 price is expected to start from an MSRP of around $45,000, and that of the Genesis G90 from $65,000. When it comes to the release date, the G90 is expected to be offered sometime in early 2017, with the G80 shortly following after.

2017 Genesis G80 Exterior

The sleek, upscale, appearance of the Genesis G80 expresses a uniquely futuristic design. It features a key geometric element, a striking hexagonal front grille, a dynamic rear design, and an elegant crease accent. More focus has relied on the voluminous body sections as opposed to surface details. The front fascia not only encompasses standard bi-xenon HID headlights, available LED fog lights and LED daytime running lights, but also semi-gloss chrome elements.

The sporty styling is emphasized by the sleek C-pillar, while the general profile is highlighted by the blended surfaces, and expressive, fluid lines. Around back, the Genesis G80 gets a sense of visual width and feeling of stability courtesy of the sculptural aesthetics with full-LED and jeweled wrap-around taillights.

The occupants of the vehicle will inevitably find the cabin to be curvaceous, and comfortable. The instrument panel and the simplified switchgear ensure an open feel and intuitive layout. Several elements have been integrated to offer the occupants a user-centric experience. Such elements include the interconnection of the B-pillar and the upper instrument panel with the headliner and the center stack with the console.

Three Principles

Three cabin design principles were the main areas that the Genesis design team focused on intuitiveness, safety, and simplicity. Optimal cabin ergonomics has been achieved by a specially-designed laboratory tool that meticulously executes and evaluates ease of control and reach.

Some of the features to expect on the 2017 Genesis G80 interior include genuine aluminum and matte-finish wood accents, bright dashboard surfaces, adjustable driver’s seat cushion extensions and power bolsters, heated rear seats, 4-way power lumbar, and 12-way power front seats.

What Are The Available Trims?

Several trims have been lined up for 2017 – or so we think, however, Hyundai is yet to make the list known. Details are expected to get clearer as the release date edges closer. So be sure to keep posted.

V8 Engine Specs Are… V8

The noise surrounding the engine is because it manages to combine features such as superb efficiency, low emissions, and impressive power.

The 2017 Genesis G80 is the quintessential midsize luxury car to go to for anyone looking/obsessed with safety. It comes equipped with smart cruise control, lane-departure warning, automatic emergency braking, rear cross-traffic alert, lane change assist, and blind-spot monitor. A five out of five-star rating for crash impact protection impact is inevitable for the Genesis G80 2017. Results will be announced later by NHTSA.
