The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a luxury small car. The interior is very nice and the seats are comfortable as well.
Pros
•Elegant cabin design
•Long list of standard and optional features
•Potent engine lineup.

New features for 2019
•Refreshed front and rear exterior styling
•New turbocharged standard engine
•Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now standard
•Enhanced driver assistance features.


This Mercedes has several engine options, and all deliver satisfying power. Elegant materials are everywhere you look and touch, and the list of standard and optional features is extensive.

Mercedes-Benz made several changes to the C-Class that make the 2019 model more appealing than older models. Exterior styling is refreshed, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are now standard. New and updated active safety features have been added as well. A 10.25-inch infotainment display screen and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster are newly optional, and all models except the base C300 sedan feature the larger infotainment screen.


In terms of performance, the C300 lineup gets a new 255-horsepower engine, while the AMG C 43's twin-turbocharged V6 engine gets a 23-horsepower boost to 385 horsepower.

For 2018, Mercedes added a rearview camera to the standard features list in coupe models. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay were also made available for the first time.

S Class Overview

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the ultimate luxury sedan. Whether you care more about performance or interior opulence, the S-Class delivers, making it one of the finest automobiles on the market.
Pros
Lavish, feature-filled interior
Outstanding seats
Powerful twin-turbo engines
Cushioned ride.

Cons
Coupe and cabriolet models have small trunks
Modest learning curve for infotainment system.

New for 2018

New V6-powered base model (S 450)
More powerful V8 in S 560 and AMG S63
More active safety features, including autonomous driving options.

What Mercedes has to offer is luxury, powerful engines and a thrilling driving experience. This Mercedes offers plenty of features. To top it off, both rows of seats provide plenty of space and support, regardless of body style.

The dash’s two huge instrument and display screens are all clarity and logic. They’ve been updated and now more closely resemble what you get in the new E-Class, which is fine by us.

Mercedes is one of the few manufacturers that hasn’t gone doolally for touchscreens, and good as the A8’s twin-screen setup is, it’s still not as intuitive as having a dedicated, physical control.

Said screens are set in beautifully worked leather, wood and metal, and most ergonomics are just-so. Those familiar with Mercedes will notice the new steering wheel, with its touchpads and cruise control, erm, controls. It’s a bit button-heavy, but you get used to it.

Volvo V60 Review

The new Volvo V60 is a great looking car with an elegant interior. It's comfortable to drive and has plenty of features too.
The V60 that has the bigger footprint, measuring 4.761m in length compared to the XC60's 4.688m.
Up front, the V60's cabin is a lovely place to be. It's light and airy, with premium materials ensuring a quality finish.

Dominating the center console is Volvo's portrait-orientated 9-inch Sensus touchscreen, through which most of the V60's key controls are accessed.  V60 is a good looking car, combining a fancy and spacious interior.

How Many People Does the V60 Seat?



The V60 has room for five people. Volvo made the V60’s back seats roomier for 2019, though some reviewers note that a high floor limits foot room for passengers sitting in the middle seat.

The V60 seats five people in two rows. Volvo made the V60’s back seats roomier for 2019, though some reviewers note that a high floor limits foot room for passengers sitting in the middle seat.

V60 and Car Seats

There are two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats, along with an upper tether for the middle seat.

V60 Interior Quality

The V60 has one of the most elegant interiors in the class. It features soft-touch materials like standard leather or textile and vinyl upholstery, and available niceties like wood trim add another touch of sophistication. Power-adjustable front seats with memory settings and power lumbar support are also standard. Available features include Nappa leather upholstery, massaging front seats, heated front and rear seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The Beautiful I8

The I8 looks amazing.
A small mid-mounted 231bhp petrol engine drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox, while a 143bhp electric motor drives the front wheels.
That allows three distinct sorts of propulsion. In sports mode there's AWD sports-car driving with performance to roughly match BMW’s own M4.

Hybrid mode is peaceful and ultra-efficient. Or it can travel purely electrically up to 75mph, using the plug-in battery reserve.

The car can finesse its drive strategy to use the minimum energy – whether that energy comes from petrol or electricity.

Low drag is one part of that, and so’s minimal rolling resistance . The Coupe is 1,535kg. Even the Roadster is under 1,600kg, which is less than a 911 when outfitted with 4WD, autobox and electric roof.

But it was such a moonshot when new that its engineers sensibly exercised a certain amount of caution. With the benefit of experience, they have juiced up the battery (it holds 70 per cent more than before) and the main traction motor too. Gainers are electric range and hybrid performance and fuel-efficiency. It should now do a realistic 20-25 miles of electric range, and the official CO2 numbers are as low as 42g/km for the Coupe.

Also they’ve quelled the original’s front understeer by using new front damper calibration and a stouter rear anti-roll bar. The Roadster gets those changes and the coupe takes the sportiness up another notch.

The Roadster isn’t just a fair-weather spyder. The three-layer electric cloth roof is properly weather sealed and quiet. So it adds another facet to this car. But roof-up in 4WD sports mode, you’ve still got the coupe’s talent as a proper all-weather ground coverer.

BMW 8 Series Engines

BMW says the new 8-series is one part of a new design language for the brand, which is meant to be cleaner and more contemporary. It has a lovely interior abd offers a pretty good driving experience.
Two engines will be available from launch; an 840d and a M850i. Both have BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed ‘Steptronic’ automatic gearbox as standard.

BMW 840d xDrive

Engine: 3.0-litre straight-six turbodieselPower/torque: 316bhp/502lb ft0-62mph/top speed: 4.9sec/155mph limited Claimed economy: 46.3mpg

BMW M850i xDrive

Engine: 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8Power/torque: 523bhp/553lb ft0-62mph/top speed: 3.7sec/155mph limited Claimed economy: 28.3mpg

The xDrive all-wheel drive system just defaults to sending all power to the rears under normal driving conditions to help with efficiency; only when the car detects slip or under heavy load will the fronts light up to add extra grip. BMW’s ‘Integral Active Steering’ is standard, too.

The all-new 2019 BMW 8 Series has a great interior and features plenty of premium materials. However, a few critics argue that a top-shelf car like this should stand out more with its cabin styling, deriding the fact its interior looks and feels like other BMWs and that some rivals have more panache. The front seats are superb, though the rear seats are too small for adults. Trunk space is good for the class, and a mostly easy-to-use infotainment system headlines the features list.



Tesla Model S Review

This four-door, five-seat saloon is the car that established Elon Musk’s California-based company as a force to be reckoned with, a company whose products deserve to stand alongside the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi.  Tesla Model S has two electric motors which deliver power from either a 75 or 100kWh battery pack, driving all four wheels through a single-speed transmission.


Tesla Model S aerodynamics keeps the centre of gravity nice and low, which aids handling. There’s loads of storage space inside the cabin of Model S.



Performance is… ample. The fastest Model S, the P100D, claims 0-62mph in less than 2.5 seconds, and even the slower, cheaper 75D does the same in 4.2 seconds.

It’s addictively fast, whatever the spec – and that’s bad news for range, which Tesla puts at 304 miles for the 75D, 393 miles for the 100D and 381 miles for the flagship P100D. But that’s on the old NEDC cycle, and therefore a bit unrealistic.

In reality, the 75D ought to run for over 200 miles on a single charge. And if you do find yourself running in a low budget, owning a Tesla gives access to a network of high-speed chargers called ‘Superchargers’ that can fully charge your Tesla within minutes, not hours. There are more than 10,000 stations worldwide.

The ATS impresses with crisp driving dynamics, a trio of powerful engine options, and excellent crash test ratings. The Cadillac also has an abundance of standard features. It’s not all great news, though. Some of those features aren’t very user-friendly, and the ATS’ back seat is narrow and cramped. Its ride quality may be too firm for some tastes as well.
