Infiniti Q50 2.0 t Review: Heir to the G sedan?

Market research should be banned – especially when it drives all other types of research. ‘Softer, Sharper, Smoother’ seems to be the mandate for the Q50 from the marketing gurus at the Infiniti HQ. Where, from a brainstorming room lit up with bright ideas, someone threw the old blueprints of …

2015 Hyundai Genesis Review: Evolution

When you buy into a Genesis, what matters is what you are let to have. Beyond the mist of brand halos, that is what counts. In its rise to being the ‘viable alternative’, originality is not something Hyundai has cared for; oneupmanship and value are. And with the 2015 Genesis, …

Nissan X-Trail 2015 review: Carriage of convenience

When Qashqai vanishes from the market map of this region next year, it could be some time before that gets noticed. The all-new Nissan X-Trail is designed to cover up for the Qashqai as well. It even masquerades as several other Nissans too in bits, including the Murano and the …
