Renault’s latest SUV is almost here, the name is cool, but what about the car?

Renault is launching a new SUV soon, ideally slotted and marketed between the Captur and the Kadjar, and it’s called Austral. The name is cool, but what about the car? At the moment, we only know that the French company has been testing a total of 100 prototypes around Europe (France, Romania, Spain and Germany, … More Renault’s latest SUV is almost here, the name is cool, but what about the car?

There’s a new Renault, we don’t know what it looks like, but at least the name is cool

We don’t know what the latest Renault SUV (duh) looks like, but we know the name: Australi. It comes from the Latin word ‘australis’, which means ‘southern’. We don’t know much about it yet, apart from the fact that it measures 4.51 mt in length and it’s supposed to be a crossover/SUV/C Segment hatchback.

Another supercar brand goes down the SUV rabbit hole

The LA Auto Show is my favourite car show because it ticks all the boxes that a modern car-themed event should tick in the 2020s. You’ve got cool cars and trucks, obviously, but there’s a strong focus on technology, which is hugely important, and networking. And there’s usually wine involved. And don’t worry, at the … More Another supercar brand goes down the SUV rabbit hole

There’s a new Genesis, and it looks good (like most Genesis cars)

Genesis throws the best afterparties at the LA Auto Show along with Hyundai. What does this have to do with the actual car? Nothing. I just wanted to say it. Anyway, this is the new GV70 – ‘electrified’ because ‘duh’, and it was recently unveiled at the Guangzhou in China. There’s a new Crest Grille … More There’s a new Genesis, and it looks good (like most Genesis cars)

Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq

Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq. Škoda is one of the few brands that’s actually trying to make generic-looking SUVs more interesting. First of all, they’ve devised this unique naming scheme whereby every SUV they build begins with a K and ends with a Q (Karog, Kodiaq, etc). It looks good, … More Tune in on November 30 for the upgraded Škoda Karoq

The VW ID.5 is available for preorder (and it ain’t cheap!)

Guess what, you can now buy yet another electric SUV with a hefty price tag. It’s the brand-new ID.5 – the latest (and largest) addition to the available range of electric VWs (all of which are built on the same modular platform, btw). The car is available for preorder as we speak, with three engine … More The VW ID.5 is available for preorder (and it ain’t cheap!)

2022 XT4 is like other SUVs but better, and less expensive. And it’s a Cadillac

Between you and I – and everyone else who’s reading this including the people who lent me the car you see here – SUVs/CUVs are all broadly the same, and they’re all bit dull and that’s why we don’t really like them. They’re predictable, safe, solid, reliable, jack-of-all-trades vehicles with many merits and no significant … More 2022 XT4 is like other SUVs but better, and less expensive. And it’s a Cadillac

Two days with the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe in the mountains

Porsche Cayenne was first introduced at the 2002 Frankfurt Motor Show and entered production in 2003. It was a breakthrough vehicle for both Porsche and the automotive industry because it pioneered big and powerful off-roaders that aren’t off-roaders. It was one of the first SUVs as we know it today. It was a bold move … More Two days with the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe in the mountains
