A year and a half with the Cayenne S Hybrid. What is more in it - economy and ecology, or is it S?

A year and a half with the Cayenne S Hybrid. What is more in it - economy and ecology, or is it S?

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you say "hybrid"? I immediately remember a thousand jokes about the Prius, about the existence of a battery-powered Civic and hybrid Lexus. The market for hybrids has long been much more extensive, and everyone seems to know that they exist, but they have real popularity, perhaps only in the circles of stylish fighters ...

New Toyota Prius: Is the Future Today?

Greetings, dear readers! In the mid-90s, a small proportion of men changed from tracksuits to formal clothes. Well, how strict ... Some of them wore crimson jackets, which for a long time were the cause of jokes and anecdotes of that time. They also switched from "chisels" to "Mercedes" at 12 ...

How to light an electric car?

How to light an electric car?

For me, my V60 D6 AWD PHEV is more of an electric car, because I have the pleasure of constantly charging it, and a full charge is almost always enough to move between charges. The diesel engine works so rarely that once I contemplated an interesting inscription from the on-board computer, a cat ...

What is the thrill of the BMW i8

What is the thrill of the BMW i8

This time, there were no racing tracks, or even normal public roads to burn off. Most of the route is on the highway, where the BMW i8 is no different from a regular GT. Turning off the highway, you find yourself on paths so narrow that you have to stop, driving away from ...

New Chevrolet Volt

New Chevrolet Volt

After a series of teasers and leaks, Chevrolet showed off the new Volt at the Detroit auto show. It is difficult to judge unambiguously from the pictures, but ... yes, a little identity was lost.

Hybrid Minotaur from Lamborghini

Hybrid Minotaur from Lamborghini

I’m like a Bae Cap, but I just saw the first hybrid car from Lamborghini - ASTERION LPI 910-4. Precisely the first, because only he can be like that - a car, not she - a car, he, only he. I'll start with the technical data, although his appearance makes my hormones move more. From boring ...

Passenger test drive: Infiniti Q50S Hybrid (V37) '2015

A couple of days ago I noticed a new Volt on the road, and today I was just near my dealer and stopped by to find out what was there and how.

Dump truck from "tadpole". 54 years have passed and finally UAZ has released a truck with a dump platform.

REP IS THE GAC. Russian rapper Basta presented in Moscow the Chinese crossover GAC GS8

In the dimly lit parking lot in front of the Moscow Museum, large, dark cars lined up. At first glance, especially from a distance, it was easy to mistake them for Toyota Land Cruiser 200. Many of those who came to the presentation at the Moscow Museum noted the similarity of the GAC GS8 with the status Japanese SUV. But when ...

2021 GMC Yukon! A cool debut of a new generation!

Hello. So the second (after 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe) SUV from General Motors made its debut and I want to say that I liked this car much more. In general, the appearance, the cars get pretty predictably similar to relatives - pickups. And if the new Tahoe (logically reminiscent of Silverado ...

UAZ Loaf "Expedition" version 2020

Finally, hands reached the factory and Loaf. And then it’s a shame - there was a Patriot in the Expedition version, there was an Expeditionary Hunter, but there was no Expedition Loaf.

How Vladimir Crimea photographed.

How Vladimir Crimea photographed.

Once Vladimir indulged in despondency at work. Outside the window, a fine autumn rain drizzled, a cold wind blew away the remnants of leaves from the trees. The open page of the diary was full of important and urgent matters for a couple of years to come. And only a mug of freshly brewed tea kept Vladimir from quickly ...

A new car brand has appeared in Russia

Perhaps some people thought that I was writing about Opel, but this is not so!

We study the assembly of Haval cars at a plant in Russia

The Haval plant in the Tula region was opened by Putin himself, for a minute.

Audi RS6 is the fastest station wagon in Russia for just 8 million

Audi RS6 is the fastest station wagon in Russia for just 8 million

In Russia, for some reason, generalists are not very fond of. In the premium segment, anyway. But the Audi RS6 Quattro is a completely different topic. It seems that he was called a universal by mistake. In fact, this shed has the "stats" of a real supercar. For starters, at least the price - from 117,500 euros or from 8.3 million rubles ...

Maybach Beyond the Asphalt: A Tribute to Fashion or a Sober Reasoning?

Greetings, dear readers! Don't you think that the world ... how can I put it mildly ... has gone a little crazy?

Xcode concept car: Lada made with love

Xcode concept car: Lada made with love

Do you know what AvtoVAZ and "Ladas" have always lacked during the almost half-century history of the Togliatti brand? Love.

New Defender as an example of honest model renewal

New Defender as an example of honest model renewal

The new Land Rover Defender is a conventional modern SUV with a controversial exterior. On paper, its off-road performance is impressive, but in practice, Jeepers will still prefer a continuous axle to air suspension. There seems to be nothing to discuss. But I liked the new Def ...! I'll explain now. TO…

What is the price, is the ride like that? Trying a UAZ Patriot with a factory automatic gun - fire!

Domestic automobile history is a sad story.

First acquaintance with the all-new Hyundai Sonata 2020

Safety is the main thing that representatives of the brand are talking about, presenting a new car - Hyundai Sonata DN8.

More Gelika, more interesting X7? A day with the new GLS 9 million

We have been waiting for the new GLS for a very long time: so much has happened in 13 years! BMW, for example, recently released the X7, which turned out to be very good. But the problem was that we were comparing it with an already very old Mercedes - but now the game was on an equal footing. We went to the States to test the new GLS, look ...
