Infiniti Q60 Red Sport looks, acts the part of sporty car

Infiniti has always been one of my favorite luxury brands, despite the disastrous ad campaign that launched the brand. Remember the salmon swinging upstream? Never did see that Q45 did we. Ok, that was nearly 30 years ago and the brand certainly has proven itself worthy against well established luxury marks. Infiniti has added some

QX50 crossover keeps Infiniti in the game, begs for update

Infiniti has tried hard to get its mojo back. Introduced the same year as Lexus, the company bolted on the scene with the Q45, a stunning piece that gave Jaguar a serious challenge. It hasn’t had a big sedan that adventurous since, probably because it’s more concerned with trucks and crossovers. That’s not a big

Audi Q7 loaded with luxury but showing its age

  The luxury SUV market has become a very crowded field. There’s hardly a marque that doesn’t have such a vehicle or plan to have such a vehicle within the next couple of years. There are some really good ones. The Audi Q7 is one of those good ones. Yes, it has its age issues

Acura’s RLX moves company in right direction

Acura used to strike fear in the hearts of luxury car makers. This upstart Japanese firm offered two cars which were done so well that others were trying to catch up. Yes, the entry-level Integra and the “near luxury” Legend were the talk. I mean the talk. Many people wanted them, especially the Legend, a

QX56 is spacious, comfortable Infiniti offering

There are large luxury SUVs and then there’s the Infiniti QX56 which tips the scales on the gigantic side. There’s probably bigger. Caddy’s Escalade comes in a Suburban length version but somehow this QX56 comes across more massive. You have to step up into this thing and it feels really wide. Well, it is really

LS 460 F-Sport good addition to Lexus stable

When Lexus introduced the LS in 1989 as a 1990, the rules of the automotive industry changed. It was undeniably smooth, uncompromisingly crafted and an unqualified hit. Yes, the Japanese could go a step above Acura and purposely compete with the big dogs. Twenty-four years later Lexus may have lost a little luster int he

2013 Escalade offers luxury; new model prepped

I didn’t know Cadillac still made an Escalade so imagine my delight when rolled up for review at alldaytech.com. Yes, the Escalade was once the luxury item to have. Athletes, actors, rappers and anyone who wanted to be seen as chic drove an Escalade. It wasn’t the first, but it eventually snatched the premium SUV

Stealthy Maxima still Nissan’s top offering

I once thought Nissan should drop the Maxima. What’s the point? The Altima is nearly the same size, is cheaper and is nearly identical in look. So I thought. I changed my mind when I drove a Maxima recently. The Altima is a very good family sedan. The Maxima is a nearly great four door

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
