Kia Motors’ Newest Midsize SUV Is Humongous, Rugged And Luxurious

And here I am, thinking that the KIA Sorento was huge. Well, it was and then this came along: the 2020 KIA Telluride Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). The new SUV from KIA that redefines big midsize SUV.

When it comes to no-holds barred and eccentric off-roading vehicles, no one knows it better than the Russians.

Suzuki Goes Back To Its Roots With A New, Boxy Jimny

Off-roading is not exactly Japanese automakers’ strongest suit, but that does not stop them from turning out some pretty decent off-roaders. In fact, folks like Suzuki managed to develop off-roaders that weren’t fuel guzzlers like Jeep and Land Rover does while still having the oomph for off-road duties. Speaking of which, one of Suzuki’s most iconic off-roaders is the Jimny, which the marque has been selling since its introduction in the 1970s.

Peugeot Unveils A Radically New Sedan And An Adventure-seeking Van-like SUV

I think I may not be able to write much because, I may be too excited. Now, the thing is, I am not usually thrilled by Peugeot automobiles, but here we have are two rides that managed to tickle my fancy somewhat. The first is an all-new, and may we say, radical, sedan designated Peugeot 508 and the other, a MPV-ish Sports Utility Vehicle (that’s what Peugeot is referring to as, btw) that took on a name that’s a departure to the French automaker’s naming norm and it is called Peugeot Rifter. Oh man. I don’t even know where to begin. Lets start with the 508, shall we? Continue reading Peugeot Unveils A Radically New Sedan And An Adventure-seeking Van-like SUV

Land Rover Set To Restored The 70-Year-Old Original 4×4 Prototype

Jaguar Land Rover group has an interesting project planned for 2018. The company has found one of the three original pre-production prototypes 4×4 that made their debut at the Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948. The vehicle was apparently bought by someone in the 60s and when it was found, it was in such a dilapidated state that it took a team of experts at Jaguar Land Rover Classic months poring over the archives to determine that it is indeed the long lost vehicle, the vehicle that started it all. As part of the group’s 70th anniversary in 2018, the group will embark on a year-long meticulous restoration progress to bring the 48’ prototype back to its former glory.
