The Genesis Game Plan: Will It Survive The New Genesis GV80?

Genesis J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study
Genesis vehicles are priced-fixed and available for purchase online only. Genesis Canada holds inventory as there are no selling-dealers. For test drives, Genesis will bring the cars to you. All of this is very complex, and not at the same time. And this is perhaps why I find many of Genesis’ ideas, none of them new mind you, to...

2021 Genesis GV80: Genesis 2.0

The all-new Genesis GV80 will become the brand’s flagship vehicle. It will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder or a twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6. AWD will be standard in Canada, as will a 14.5-inch infotainment screen. Value, design, luxury and technology are all part of the GV80.

Infiniti: The Next 30 Years Via More Design And Electrification

The next three years will redefine Infiniti’s image and from what we’ve seen, it’s looking really good. Here’s a bit of knowledge, if you didn’t know: The Infiniti logo represents the road, the long infinite road ahead and Infiniti’s desire to be there with you.

Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury vehicle division, is working hard to compete but will it make it? Genesis was founded almost exactly three years ago. The momentum behind Hyundai’s decision to launch its own luxury brand was based, in part, on the relative success of the first generation of the Hyundai Genesis sedan, and the potential to elevate the brand’s standing on...

Mitsubishi Motors : The Brand With A Rising Sun

Mitsubishi has suffered and triumphed equally over the last few years. They promise that the lows are behind them. I’ve not been very kind to Mitsubishi for close to seven years. They gave me no choice following numerous regretful decisions such as cancelling the Endeavor, the EVO program as it should be and naming an SUV “Eclipse” not to mention...

Should You Buy An Internal Combustion Engine-d Car?

Will the shift to electric cars have a negative effect on your petrol-powered car’s resale value in the very near future? In a way, maybe. Earlier this month, the always-vocal Elon Musk shared a link to a story from cleantechnica.com that touches on the impact Tesla cars and SUVs are having on the car market by comparing costs of ownership,...

Porsche Taycan Turbo: The Trim Debate

Porsche’s decision to use “Turbo” and “Turbo S” as trims on the new Taycan electric car is confusing many. We’re not confused. A few weeks ago, Porsche invited a bunch of auto scribes to the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta for a deep dive into the new Porsche Taycan. At one point, trim nomenclatures were brought up and they justified...

Car Manufacturers Are Slowly Conditioning Us For The Next Phase Of The Automobile

Changes to the automotive landscape are far deeper than they seem. The risings costs of doing business are slowly killing brand identity Some 10 or 12 years ago, I wrote a story about the convergence of research, design and development. In my piece, I described how uniqueness and specialized products would eventually disappear as all R&D for all car manufacturers...

Volkswagen Atlas Basecamp Concept
