New York 2017: the Infiniti QX80 Monograph concept

concept Infiniti QX80 Monograph

The QX80 Monograph concept showcases a potential design direction that Infiniti’s next mega SUV might look like. From the pictures, and seeing it in person, we can almost point out the few elements that won’t make it to production. In other words, it almost looks as though it’s ready to roll off the assembly line. Although the QX80 Monograph is only a concept, a number of visual styling cues are familiar, and a number more ...

FIRST REVIEW: 2018 Volkswagen Atlas

2018 Volkswagen Atlas

Volkswagen was a little late to the modern SUV party. Back in the day, from 1968 to 1983, they had the Type 181, also known as the “Thing” but this is not exactly the type of SUV we’re talking about.

2017 Toyota RAV4

I heard this saying just recently and I’ve no idea if it’s an actual thing but once I had an image in my mind, I quickly drew a parallel with the RAV4 Hybrid. For starters, the expression reads worse than it is so, well; don’t read into it too much. Our beloved (?) Queen is a person of some importance, much like the RAV4. Toyota was among the first OEMs to venture into the small ...

QUICK CAR REVIEW: 2017 Toyota Highlander SE AWD

2017 Toyota Highlander

I’m not exactly sure what’s going with Toyota transmissions these days but as I write these lines, I’m already on my next product from the Japanese giant and it’s major flaw is located between the engine and drive wheels. And it’s the same with this Highlander. Toyota’s 3-row large midsize CUV has been a safe bet since it hit the ground rolling just over 15 years ago and continues to be just that today. The ...
