[ 30 May 2017 | Comments Off on Lincoln’s Black Label fits new Continental very, very nicely ]

I was almost afraid to write my review on Ford Motor Company’s new Lincoln Continental. Will my readers believe me when I say I like this car as much as I liked the 5-Series BMW I drove a few weeks ago? That’s not possible, is it?
Think about that. A Lincoln, which was known for riding like a cruise ship instead of handling like a cruise missile, is now as good as luxury sedans that have …

[ 14 Mar 2015 | Comments Off on Kia K900 wants to be top dog in large luxury sedans ]

When Hyundai introduced the Equus a few years back there was a collective side eye given by the automotive press thinking the company had overstepped its boundaries.
Not so.Turns out Korean luxury is as good as Japanese, German and American.
Now that Hyundai’s sister company Kia has jumped into the big luxury car fray, we’re not surprised. The question isn’t is it any good but how good will it be?
I can’t compare the Equus to the K900 …

[ 3 Jun 2013 | Comments Off on Jaguar’s XJ is world class luxury sedan ]

You’ve probably heard that owing certain cars puts you in the lap of luxury. I believe you can successfully make the argument that the Jaguar XJ is luxury’s lap itself.
It’s not a hard argument. Jaguar has always known how to make exquisite cars and this is one of the world’s best. Seriously. The design, execution and presentation of this comely beast is near perfect.
The exterior is really something. It scores a 9.8 on the gawk …

[ 6 Nov 2012 | Comments Off on New Land Rover evokes a driver’s passion ]

Say Land Rover and most automatically think of the Range Rover, arguably the world’s most plush (and toughest) sport utility vehicle.
Would you think compact SUV? There is the LR3, but it’s kind of old-think and not very stylish.
Can’t say that about the new Evoque. It’s all new, in idea and execution.
Stylish? Very. Ever heard of Posh Spice? That’s Beckham’s wife Victoria. She was asked to lend a hand in the vehicle’s makeup. Not sure what …

Genesis R-Spec Sedan Is Special Indeed

Charleston, SC — My, how the fallen have become mighty. Hyundai’s also-ran status from the ‘90s has quickly turned into try to keep up with us in this century.
The company has turned out one success after another and isn’t slowing down. Even with new product in the pipeline it has had time to revise and refine offerings that are barely in mid-life status.
Yep, the Genesis — a luxury sedan that competes with cars far more …

Kia Optima Turbo Offers Value, Style

If Hyundai had its sights on Lexus and Mercedes for the nifty Sonata sedan, surely Kia was looking at Jaguar’s XF for the stunning Optima.
Yes, that Optima, a boring but competent sedan that was as affordable as it was serviceable.
Kia has injected a great deal of style into this reworked Optima. It is a looker. There is much Jaguar in the car. That gives it a far more elegant look than any other car in …
