2018 Audi Q5 Petrol Review

There’s still a lot left to tell about the second generation Audi Q5. And one can say that there’s one more chapter added to the Q5’s tale. A chapter that’s probably predictable, none-the-less a story worth telling. It’s like my niece telling me the story of Harry Potter and me looking at her wanting to know more and acting as if I have never heard of such a person. Audi had made it quite clear that it is looking to shift its attention to petrol-powered cars and the balance will soon…

2018 Mazda6 GT wagon new car review

Turbo engine brings more performance. New model a lot quieter than old 6. Beautiful presented cabin. Boot not biggest in class. Rear seat room tight for three adults. New engine thirstier than non-turbo model. Evolution, not revolution appears to be the ethos at Mazda these days. And why not, as the Japanese brand is riding the crest of the wave – in Australia at least – with strong sales and an image that places it between mainstream rivals and the prestige elite. Enter the new Mazda6, which in theory is…

2018 Audi Q5 petrol India review, test drive

What is it? With petrol-powered cars making a comeback in the luxury segments, Audi announced a renewed focus on petrol cars in India, some time ago. Last year, India got the Q7 with a petrol engine; and now it’s the Q5 that the brand has made available with the petrol engine on offer. The engine in question is the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol motor that produces a strong 252hp in the Q7. Interestingly, this Q5 45 TFSI-badged petrol makes 62hp more than the only Q5 on sale up until now –…

The SVR treatment gives it 50 more horses and 75 Nm more torque than the regular Range Rover Sport 5.0 V8 When Land Rover launched the 2nd generation of the Range Rover Sport in 2013, it was six months after the all-new Range Rover had come out.

2018 Bentley Continental GT review, test drive

The plan is to have breakfast in Austria, lunch in Italy, make a dash back across the border, and fly to Germany for dinner. It’s a hectic schedule but Bentley presumably wants us to get into the skin of the jet-setters who make up the Continental GT’s buyer base. There must be many of the type because an incredible 70,000 Continental GTs have been delivered since the model made its debut in 2003. It is the bestselling Bentley to date until such time, of course, the Bentayga SUV inevitably stakes…

2018 Mercedes-Benz C-class facelift review, test drive

What is it? It’s been four whole years since this generation of C-class has been around, but it doesn’t feel that long, since the car, for the most part, has aged so well. Sure, newer rivals have taken the game forward, particularly in the technology and infotainment departments, but it’s the classic design and solid luxury values that have kept the C desirable. An update, however, is rarely a bad thing, and that’s what we will be getting, in India, in October 2018. We’ve been driving the mid-cycle refresh of…
