For $140k, Land Rover wants to take you on the world’s most luxurious road trip

Everyone likes a good road trip. Whether it’s to move cross country (check), to see the space shuttle launch (I did the drive, though the launch was scrubbed), or just to see somewhere new (check, check, check). A road trip is an opportunity to see the world, one mile at a time. Most of my road trips have involved stops at quaint, but inexpensive, roadside motels across the United States and Waffle Houses and every local fast food joint known to man. But you can also go the other way,  ...

Startup’s self-driving test car crashes after driver takes control

A test vehicle for Cruise Automation, a California startup that wants to build an autonomous driving "kit" that can be installed on existing cars, was involved in a minor car accident in San Francisco earlier this month. It’s not entirely clear if it was caused by a malfunction of the self-driving system or driver error, but it seems likely that the accident isn’t one that would occur in a production-quality autonomous car. It happened just after an emergency takeover  ...

The Cutting-Edge of Cool: 2016 Range Rover Evoque

There’s some kind of aura that comes into play while you’re commanding a new Range Rover. Actually, I take that back. The prestige factor is deafeningly apparent, but it’s more than just the name that makes the Range Rover a high end make. You can sense the hundreds of thousands of hours spent defining its visually captivating design, and presumably more building the advanced technology that compliments it. You can notably feel the confidence slipping off every curve. This  ...

A Beautiful Fall Drive in the 2016 Land Rover LR4

I drove past this kid a few days ago. He couldn’t have been older than 16. He was dribbling his basketball down the street, lagging behind his friends. He did the occasional jump shot, presumably for the repetition of working on his form, but most likely to break the monotony of dribbling. Kid stuff, you know. I drove by him in the new, dark red 2016 Land Rover LR4. The kid froze. Gripping his basketball, his jaw hit the sidewalk as his head turned synchronously with the speed of the  ...

A Razor Sharp Test Drive in the 2015 Ford Edge Titanium

View post on imgur.com The 2015 Ford Edge Titanium may be the ultimate sleeper utility vehicle I’ve been waiting for. In all honesty, I wholeheartedly overlooked this car when I got the offer to test drive it. Maybe it’s because I’m still reeling off the cool factor of the Land Rover from last week. Maybe it’s because there’s a lot of Ford cars that start with an “E” (Edge, Escape, Explorer) or an “F” (Fusion, Focus, Fiesta), and the  ...

Redefining Style in the 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport

The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the latest arrival in the current trend of utilitarian-focused compact SUVs, combining a sleek new design and raw all-terrain power. Yep, this vehicle can drive you into the watery trenches and keep you safe, dry, and in total control. Unfortunately Toronto doesn’t cater well to the outdoorsy type, short of driving this guy into Lake Ontario, but I still had a pleasant experience taking this on an urban adventure. Based heavily on the new Range  ...
