The Volkswagen Golf is, quite simply, an icon. It has matured from cut-price family transport into a luxury small car, but throughout its history it has remained the benchmark for the sector. It’s currently in its seventh generation. It has won the World Car of the Year award twice and is one of just three cars to win the European Car of the Year award on two separate occasions.
When it comes to cars, a lot can change in a year. Take the Ford Mustang, for example. For 2018, Ford has given its iconic muscle car a makeover. The Mustang has a new look, updated engines, a new transmission, new tech — you get the picture. If you’re in the market for a new sports car and are considering American muscle, here’s everything you need to know about the 2018 Ford Mustang.
Nissan has released their 2018 Maxima which might be treading on the toes of the Infinity Q50 with its cheaper, simpler version of the same basic platform. There really isn’t a huge price difference between the two either. A base level Infiniti costs about $1,000 more than the entry level Nissan Maxima S that comes with a sticker price of $32,020.
The Dodge Journey is one of the oldest mid-size SUVs on the market. It debuted in 2008 as a 2009 model year, and since then it hasn’t received a significant redesign. There was a mild refresh in 2011, but that was mostly an aesthetics upgrade.
Mercedes-Benz has become the watchword for bleeding edge technology and luxury. If anything, Mercedes has strengthened its hold on the luxury car crown with the S-Class and E-Class, but it’s the C-Class that really matters.
BMW is like an aging Rockstar, living off past glories. It was once the best in the world — but it’s 10 years since. While BMW can still shock with the odd smash hit, it’s struggling to keep up with the hipper competition. Plus, their old stuff is better.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo S looks so much like the old one that you could be forgiven for thinking Porsche released the same basic car for the last 20 years; but don’t be fooled. All the magic happens under the hood and the new flagship 911 might just be the finest daily driving supercar that money can buy.
