AUTO REVIEW—Have you noticed that Mercedes-Benz has been turning out one incredibly stylish car after another? It’s no secret that they have some of the most talented designers in its design team. They are the Stylistics of Stuttgart. And the latest vehicle to receive the signature of the Stuttgart stylists is the new Mercedes-Benz 4Matic Edition 1 Coupe. Reviewer Harvey Schwartz just has four words: Betcha, By Golly, Wow.
AUTO REVIEW—This is going to be fun, headed down a stop-and-slow 605 freeway to pick up a brand new Volkswagen drop-top Bug (ooops “Beetle”) with turbo-diesel power. As almost everyone now knows, clean-living, clean-burning, high-torque, high-mileage turbo diesels are an important part of the eco-landscape and this Teutonic fun-mobile is a very cool example of that new breed of motors snuggled up front under that reminiscent hood.
AUTO REVIEW—This car’s entire name flies the face of political correctness. First of all, it’s an Expedition—the Platinum Edition, no less. Those two letters that follow—EL—stands for Extended Length. And this is a 4X4, a real SUV—not one of those sissy crossover vehicles. And this is no ordinary SUV. It’s the biggest one Ford makes. In the words of Donald Trump, this vehicle is HUGE! Senior Contributing Editor Harvey Schwartz reports.
AUTO REVIEW—E Major, as in major electric news here. Editor-at-Large Reed Berry spends some time with the new twins. They’re not identical twins, however. While similar in appearance, there are certain differences that give each its own individual personality. The twins in this case are the all-new 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and Sonata Plug-In Hybrid.
AUTO REVIEW—If the recent 24 Hours of Le Mans taught us anything, it’s that hybrids are no longer the sole domain of the Priuses of the world. Even the supercars have gotten into the hybrid act. Still, no one knows hybrids like Toyota, so why not a super-hybrid through its luxury mark, Lexus? Thanks to Bobby Holland and RightTrack Motoring, LA Car presents a video review of the 20125 Lexus GS 450h F-Sport.
