Buy A 2011 Hyundai Equus, Get An iPad For Your Owner's Manual

Hyundai isn't a name most buyers instantly associate with luxury or higher-end hardware, though those in the know put the Genesis and its new big brother on par with Lexus' best offerings--at a bargain price.

Video: Mercedes Knows Its Target Market, S400 Hybrid Debuts During Oscar Broadcast

Hyundai was the big kahuna sponsoring last night's Oscar broadcast, but in a shocking upset, Mercedes may have walked off with the trophy for best performance by an automaker.

Last summer we wrote briefly about the Mercedes-Benz ESF-2009 experimental safety concept vehicle, including its remarkable under-car airbag, which deploys only during a crash to help slow it down.

Volvo Gets Naughty With The 2011 S60 Sedan

The internet is pretty good at selling naughty things, and Volvo is hoping to prove it with a "naughty" web campaign for the sexy, stylish, all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan.

Driven: 2010 Lexus RX 450h

In addition to the new Lexus HS 250, Lexus has an entire line of hybrids that are almost indiscernible from a distance from their gasoline-only counterparts.

Video: 2010 Acura ZDX Customized For MusiCares Auction (Ends Today!)

A musician's life isn't easy. Like other entrepreneurs, the musician has to hustle, piecing together jobs to make a living, but the earnings can be slim and the competition tough.

2010 Lexus HS 250h
Driven Again: 2010 Lexus HS 250h

After a follow-up drive with Lexus' compact hybrid luxury sedan, we're still a little underwhelmed. The 2010 Lexus HS 250h doesn't completely miss the mark in any single way; but it does fail to wow in any conventional sense like performance, comfort, or spaciousness. And that makes it a bit of an...Read More»

2011 BMW 535i (Euro spec)
First Drive: 2011 BMW 5-Series

The new 2011 BMW 535i is more of a driver’s car than the current 2010 5-Series—or most other mid-size luxury sedans—while still upping the technology ante and not forgetting about the comfort and luxury that matters. That’s our take after spending a day driving the new 5-Series both on the...Read More»
