I'm glad they did because the rear-biased AWD system makes the Macan drive great!

However, Audi does have plenty of sporty AWD tech up their sleeves, but it's not available in SUV...

This seems to be the case for any Porsche SUV versus its BMW equivalent. Sure, the Cayenne starts at the same price as the X5, but once you equip them equally, the Porsche ends up ~$10-15k more than...

I have nothing against autonomous cars. There's a place for them in the world. Not everyone enjoys driving like us.

I think the major difference between the E250 and the Prius is that the diesel will only get 40+ mpg highway if you baby it on the highway.

You can beat on the Prius all day long, and it will...

Think about this this way...

If we ever did get a 4 banger diesel X5 in the US, it would be the exact same engine in the 328d or X3 28d. ~180hp. In the X3, it is pretty bad. Super slow. I can't...

You should go in a month or so before the end of warranty. There is some lee-way if you're that close to the end of warranty.

No, it's pretty ungainly. If the point is to stick out, then the X4/6 are the perfect cars. But, in this case, it's not a positive thing :rofl:
