For most of the Automotive Era, manufacturers have produced—as the ultimate expression of their engineering might, design savvy, and marketing capabilities—a flagship sedan. The S-Class. The Phantom. The Mulsanne. The Fleetwood. The Continental. All are three-box cars. Each has propelled world leaders, autocrats, mafia dons, etc. But now these folks and even midlevel megalomaniacs are demanding vehicles that elevate their social standing both literally and figuratively. Ground clearance and sight lines are "the new black" in cars. Having just spent a week in the most fabulous Lincoln money can buy—a Navigator Black Label—I took some notes on the missions this Lincoln can tackle that no Town Car, Continental, or other low-clearance three-box could hope to accomplish.Twice as Many Back Seats Luxobarges are all about rear seats that pamper, and in this department, the Navi doubles your pleasure. When you roll in Black Label style, even the way-back gets electric … [Read more...] about 2018 Lincoln Navigator: Three Traits Flagship Sedans Can’t Match

Flashy commercials, trendy hashtags and big events in the world of fashion and the arts are just a few of the ways that Cadillac attempted to woo new buyers in the nearly five years that former U.S. Audi boss Johan de Nysschen ran the shop. Yet while these efforts look good in the glossy pages of a men’s magazine or as a subway station ad, they never really translated to sales, and aggressive campaigning couldn’t hide what the brand lacks: a quality, competitive product that can speak for itself. Yesterday, news broke that Cadillac’s CEO Johan de Nysschen would depart the company. He had served as Cadillac’s head for just under five years. Though de de Nysschen’s apparent slowness for catching onto the SUV-craze sweeping the market certainly didn’t earn him any favors from upper General Motors management, there was a bigger issue at work behind Cadillac’s floundering sales under his leadership: the value placed in branding and price … [Read more...] about Cadillac Proved That Brand Means Nothing If You Can’t Back It Up
3 They’re the bane of everyone’s lives, but what if you really need an SUV? Does your average daily drive require their four-wheel-drive capability, build ruggedness and seven-seat capacity? Probably not and it seems ironic that while the top-end SUVs tend to seat just five, it's the less expensive (and ostentatious) family versions which have the extra perches, even if they are quite small. Take Kia’s Sorento, for example. It's in its third generation and has recently been given a mid-cycle facelift; the changes are modest, but with prices starting at £28,850, you get a lot of car for the money. So on the outside, the 'Tiger Nose' styling continues, with various bits of exterior trim moved around and a few changes to the oily bits underneath. Is this enough to keep the Sorento in contention with a market which seems to be fragmenting and moving on? With prices starting at £28,850, you get a lot of car for the money At 4.8 metres … [Read more...] about Kia Sorento review: a mid-life facelift can’t disguise this lumbering but likeable relic
