2018 Mercedes G Class 550: Truly Classic

main-image1

In automotive history, you will find only a few vehicles have never needed to depart from their classic design. The 2018 Mercedes G Class 550 is one of those vehicles.

2018 Mercedes G Class 550: Angular Front View

With a shape and air of classic Jeeps and similar military off-roading inspired vehicles, the G550 is just as imposing as it is surprisingly elegant. The most profound feature besides its overall boxiness is the retention of an actual bumper and grille guard.

The chromed bar that wraps the headlights and the classic Mercedes tri-star emblem reminds you that, despite the opulence of the brand, this vehicle still means business. The headlights themselves are utilitarian and simple with the turn signals separated as two yellow boxes on either side of the hood, in order to not be blocked by the massive bumper.

Coming to the profile of the Mercedes G550 you gain a true sense of how massive it is. At a height of over six feet tall, you will definitely need to make use of the retracting step board when getting into the driver’s seat.

From here you will also catch a glimpse of the exhaust pipes that are uniquely placed on the sides rather than the rear. The last thing to catch your eye from the side would be the five-point star shaped wheels, which options even more flashy than the last.

Moving on to the rear of the Mercedes G550 you are first greeted by the classic additional wheel, which a cover that’s chrome trimmed. Behind the wheel is a side hinged rear door that out sizes any of the passenger door. Design wise there isn’t much going on, however the functionality of such a large door gives the trunk space a walk-in-closet like experience.

The 2018 G550 is easily more than just for show. With some of the best off-roading available to luxury vehicles, to truly experience this Mercedes you’ll need to take it outdoors.

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: And It’s Getting Better…

main-image1

Even if the Toyota Prius Prime has seen no significant changes by the design team in the 2018 model year, the Prius still holds its own as being one of the most recognizable cars on the road. From the introduction of its bright new bold coloring – an electric blue – to its not-so-subtle rear and profile design, the Prius Prime will have you turning heads.  

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_angularfront

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Angular Front View

Since its introduction the all-electric Prius Prime has been a little sleeker than its hybrid predecessors. Sporting a newly stylized thin and multi-faceted row of headlights that conform perfectly to the hood and fascia, they are juxtaposed against vertical running fog lights. 

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_frontview

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Front View

Not needing a huge grille for cooling, the front fascia is also a little cleaner with a smooth surface pocked by pots similar in shape to the headlights. The front is overall a little transformer-like and arguably over designed, but is interesting nonetheless. 

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_angularrear

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Angular Rear View

Moving to the 2018 Prius Prime’s profile, its unique design begins to take shape as it moves away from traditional Priuses. With a black B and C pillar, a quick glimpse at the Prius Prime will reveal the futuristic look that the Toyota design team was going for. 

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_dashboard

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Interior View

Except for black painted models, it looks like the roof of the car is floating and only held up by the A pillar! The angles of the hood and windshield are also a little more extreme compared to previous Priuses, especially with the hatchback design – the rear window looks nearly horizontal. 

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_frontseat

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Driver’s Seats

Of course, to make up for the small rear window view, the Prius prime has kept its most controversial component: the split rear window. Probably the most unique feature of the Prius Prime is the intentionally warped rear window. Meant to give a little more viewing room for the driver, Toyota has still opted to separate the rear view by the taillight. The taillights are also a unique change from past Prius models, as it now wraps the small secondary rear window. 

toyota_18priusprimeplushb4a_rearseat

2018 Toyota Prius Prime: Rear Seats

The overall vibe of the 2018 Prius Prime is clearly a shot at what the future of vehicle design could be. From the thinner headlights, seemingly floating roof, and warped rear window, the Prius Prime is surely a sign of what’s yet to come.

2019 Lincoln MKC: Angular Front View

The 2019 model year sees some new changes for the Lincoln MKC. Updated to match the changes to the rest of their lineup, the MKC has followed suit and now presents with the same fascia and grille as its larger counterparts. 

lincoln_19mkcbasesu1af_frontview

2019 Lincoln MKC: Front View

Saying goodbye to the wing like two part grille, the new design is a never ending tessellate of the Lincoln emblem with the cross and shield found solidly in the center in absolute chrome beauty. A new hood with some new attractive curves and center ridge also accompanies these changes. 

lincoln_19mkcbasesu1af_angularrear

2019 Lincoln MKC: Angular Rear View

Coming to the rear of the 2019 MKC you are greeted by a satisfyingly rounded trunk door, which although may not seem like much at first, is a welcomed design over the boxy and square designs of many competing brands. 

lincoln_19mkcbasesu1af_dashboard

2019 Lincoln MKC: Interior View

The overall new look is a stylish upgrade along side refreshed headlights, daytime running lights, and fog lights. Moving to the profile of the Lincoln MKC, it’s remained nearly the same as previous year’s models. It has kept its very cool side aerodynamic ridge that sinks back into the body and then rises at the rear, becoming a part of the trunk door design. 

lincoln_19mkcbasesu1af_frontseat

2019 Lincoln MKC: Driver’s Seat

While admiring the trunk you also come across the large banded main tail and break light with no less than the Lincoln brand name appearing right in the middle. A little lower you’ll find dual exhaust pipes encompassed by a matte silver undercarriage guard. 

lincoln_19mkcbasesu1af_rearseat

2019 Lincoln MKC: Rear Seats

Overall the 2019 Lincoln MKC offers a stylish step above its competition. Let’s be honest, a Lincoln MKC may be the last SUV you may ever need.

2018 Volvo S90 T8-AWD Inscription: Thor’s Hammer and More.

main-image1

The 2018 Volvo S90 T8 electric hybrid is a force to be reckoned with. The front end comes to a blunt point which mirrors the Swedish automaker’s trademark LED running lights which they call Thor’s Hammer.

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Angular Front View

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Scandinavian charm 

The rest of the front is uncluttered and clean with their telltale Volvo emblem and straight line grated grille. With two longs slices carved out on either side of the hood for aerodynamics the front is otherwise untouched by cutouts and extreme lines. 

volvo_18s90t8inscriptionsa1ac_frontview

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Front View

A black lower grille is highlighted by two sharp chrome accents balancing out the headlights and complimenting the chrome of the emblem. The profile of the 2018 Volvo S90 continues the trend of simplicity and chrome trimming. 

volvo_18s90t8inscriptionsa1ac_angularrear

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Angular Rear View

From its side the S90 takes on a dog-nosed appearance in the front, though what’s most interesting is its windshield and back window angle. Both appear surprisingly small in terms of height for a family sedan, showing Volvo’s dedication to a sporty and aerodynamic drive. 

Coming to the rear of the 2018 Volvo S90 T8 you’ll find the usual emblems designating its model and powertrain. Taking cues from the front headlight design, the break lights seemingly resemble Nordic axes. Inspiring the thought that the 2018 S90 T8 might just be Volvo’s ultimate weapon or in this case vehicle. 

volvo_18s90t8inscriptionsa1ac_dashboard

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Interior View

The rear also lends itself a bulky toughness with a bumper stretching out a few inches past the taillights and extra curves carved from the trunk door. Perhaps the semblance is needed to wield all the hammers and axes the S90 carries, which it does effortlessly with its 402 horsepower combined gas/electric engines. However the true beauty of Volvo’s Scandinavian charm lies within their premier vehicles.

volvo_18s90t8inscriptionsa1ac_frontseat

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Driver’s Seat

True to form, Volvo has focused on three things when it came to the 2018 S90 T8 interior: quality materials, space, and simplicity. From the driver’s perspective you are first met with Nappa leather upholstery, polished wood inlays accented by brushed aluminum trim. 

volvo_18s90t8inscriptionsa1ac_rearseat

2018 Volvo S90 T8: Rear Seats

It is easy to say the interior is a prime example of modern design influences. Cup holders and accessory pockets are hidden allowing you to forget that the Volvo S90 T8 is still a family sedan. Cluttering button and knob controls are kept to a bare minimum allowing for an even larger infotainment display.

The interior, whether you’re up front or in the back, is beyond spacious especially with the addition of the nearly panoramic sunroof. Probably the last reminder that you’re back in Sweden every time you’re in a Volvo, is the brightly contrasting Swedish flag sewn into the upholstery of the passenger chair. 

The 2018 Volvo S90 T8 is truly one of Sweden’s finest automotive accomplishments.

2018 Toyota Camry SE: Great All Rounder

The 2018 Toyota Camry SE is a great all-rounder, but excels particularly in the areas of comfort and efficiency. 

At first glance, it’s clear that Toyota aimed to combine both a sporty look with the Camry’s traditional appearance to appeal to drivers looking for a vehicle that is capable of more demanding driving, but still comfortable and reliable. 

2018-toyota-camry-se-sedan-front-view

2018 Toyota Camry SE: Front View

The front end of the Toyota Camry SE features a black front grille with a sport mesh insert that is more dynamic in appearance than that of the 2017 Toyota Camry SE. Upon coming around to side and taking up a spot in the 2018 Toyota Camry SE, I immediately understood why the Camry continues to be one of the most successful midsized cars today.

Inside of the 2018 Toyota Camry SE, one experiences seating that feels not only comfortable and safe, but seating that also features ample legroom and is a pleasure to be in, be it for the short or the long haul.

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo : The Three Door Hyundai

main-image1

With the new model year, Hyundai returns again, with perhaps it’s most ambitious and interestingly designed model yet – the 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

hyundai_19velosterultimatecp2a_angularfront

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Angular Front View

The Veloster has always appeared an oddity in the auto-world, with three doors it is hard to say if the Veloster is a coupe, sedan, or more likely some sort of a hybrid hothatch, a.k.a. speedy hatch back. 

hyundai_19velosterultimatecp2a_frontview

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Frontal View

No matter what it is, you’re sure to gain some second glances as no other car quite looks like the Veloster. Although the latest model hasn’t seen any major design changes, the 2019 Veloster keeps its relatively short front and especially long, slow-sloping, roof.  The front of the 2019 Veloster is mostly innocuous except for some red accents at the bottom of the front grille (that may or may not resemble buck-teeth).

hyundai_19velosterultimatecp2a_angularrear

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Angular Rear View

Some external quirks (due to the 3-door design) include all doors being different shapes and sizes and obviously limited options for entering the rear seat, though the driver seat does have a release for a passenger to squeeze through. 

hyundai_19velosterultimatecp2a_dashboard

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Interior View

The rear of the Veloster is unexpectedly wide and sportier than ever. With two centralized exhaust ports and a slightly tricked out aerodynamic undercarriage guard, the Veloster comes out clean and a bit more refined compared to older models. 

hyundai_19velosterultimatecp2a_frontseat

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo: Driver’s Seat

The interior has also seen some new additions with colorful trim accents, optional leather seating, retracting heads-up display, and a well-integrated infotainment system with Apple and Android compatibility.

2019 BMW X2 : Smaller, Sportier

main-image1

The 2019 BMW X2 is the compact SUV that the young at heart has been waiting for. BMW has entered this increasingly competitive class of vehicles with a potential winner.

2019 BMW X2: Angular Front View

The 2019 BMW X2 derives its changes from an increasing demand for smaller, sportier SUVs. Although it was built off of the BMW X1 chassis, the 2019 X2 does sport some important changes. 

bmw_19x2hb1a_frontview

2019 BMW X2: Frontal View

To start with, the 2019 BMW X2 is shorter and lower, it holds onto the iconic BMW grill, but also adds hyper-aggressive head and taillights, front wheel vents and sharp looking wheels.

2019 BMW X2: Angular Rear View

In its entirety, the X2 is very sleek and polished. A few other changes include a more rugged looking under door trim, which also wraps the lower front and back bumpers, and a laterally focused lower grille in the front. 

bmw_19x2hb1a_dashboard

2019 BMW X2: Interior View

Despite the SUV moniker, the X2 holds closer to the sport than it does to the utility. Given the ultra compact size, the 2019 X2 is the perfect crossover for those looking for a bit more rear space, but also looking to maintain a quick and competent drive. 

bmw_19x2hb1a_frontseat

2019 BMW X2: Driver’s Seat

The interior of the X2 shares a likeness with most other BMWs. With an easy to use and sizeable infotainment screen, tons of quality leather and soft-touch plastics, the interior also comes out feeling more luxury than utility as well. However don’t be fooled, with ample space for up to 5 passengers and a healthy cargo space for the class, the X2 maintains all the utility you could ask for.

A few other memorable traits include a pronounced front grille, also chrome trimmed, black supporting pillars, and a flat top. New exterior updates may seem small, but are welcome flourishes for the 2019 Mini line.

The interior of the 2019 Mini S has seen some advances as well, predominantly in the technology department. 

Now featuring is an optional 8.8-in touch screen display, not to mention the 6.5-in standard display, an extra USB port, wireless charging for supported devices, and support for Apple CarPlay.
