2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class is refreshed to be more luxurious and longer

For those of you who have extremely high standards, the Mercedes-Benz S Class may not be opulent enough for you. And this is the reason why the automaker decided to make the high class sedan a notch more luxurious with its Maybach variant. This model will make an appearance at next month’s 2018 Geneva Motor Show, before it goes on sale in the United States in the late summer of 2018.

What makes this variant stand out from its siblings would be the new grille that uses vertical slats, instead of the regular horizontal ones. On the lower fascia, you will find a metallic trim that gives the vehicle a flashier look.

The most prominent change here, however, would be the car’s profile. The 2019 Mercedes-Maybach S-Class now measures 215 inches (5,461 millimeters) long, while riding on a 132.5 inch (3,365.5 mm) wheelbase. This is a whopping 10 inches (254mm) increase than even the long-wheelbase S-Class Sedan. Having said that, passengers should have a lot more leg room in the cabin.

X-Tomi Design renders the 2018 Genesis G70 as a wagon

Genesis, Hyundai’s luxury brand, recently launched the 2018 Genesis G70 to go against German models like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. But while its rivals offer their models in wagon variants, Hyundai doesn’t have a G70 wagon variant. This is because some customers just prefer to have a little more space for their junk. To keep up with the competition, Genesis might need to have a long roof variant of its own. But how would it look? X-Tomi Design helps us imagine it.

The current G70’s design features a flowing roof that goes all the way to its sporty rear, including an integrated upward kink towards the edge of the trunk. X-Tomi Design’s rendering retains its original shape, but stretches it a little creating a longer line and some extra space in the rear. The rear end now gets a spoiler to keep its performance-oriented appearance.

At this moment, Genesis offers three options of the G70 at launch in South Korea, and they have not given any details regarding the US-spec model. The Korean version’s base trim has a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder that carries out 248 horsepower (185 kilowatts), and with the Performance Package, 251 horsepower (187 kilowatts) and 260 pound-feet (353 Newton-metres) of torque. Another option is the 2.2 liter four-cylinder turbodiesel with 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts). And for the range topping trim, you’ll get a 3.3 liter turbocharged V6 that produces as much as 365 horsepower (272 kilowatts) and 376 pound-feet (510 Nm) of torque. Customers can either opt for a rear wheel drive or an all-wheel drive.

Let’s have a closer look at what’s on the Genesis G70’s grille

A lot of people have been wondering what is that on the Genesis G70’s grille. One really would not notice such a thing from afar, but if you get up close and personal, then you would see something planted on the center of its grille.

Well, experts say that this is a front-mounted radar that works with the driver assist system that the G70 features. This new technology features adaptive cruise control, emergency automatic braking, frontal collision warning and such. A number of automakers have this technology installed on the front end of their cars, but so far, not many of them have great results, but we have yet to see how it works on the Genesis G70.

As mentioned earlier, the front-mounted radar has not performed as well as automakers and customers expected it to. For instance, Hyundai, Genesis’ mother company used the same technology for its mid-size Sonata sedan - and this might be the worst mistake they have ever made.

Hyundai reveals new Genesis G70 as its contender for mid-size luxury sport sedan segment

Hyundai has unveiled to the global public its latest sedan that elegantly combines luxury and performance in one innovative package under its Genesis luxury brand – the new Genesis G70. It is the third model in Hyundai’s Genesis brand, following the Genesis G80 and the Genesis G90. But while its larger siblings were much focused on luxury, the new Genesis G70 aims to offer a perfect blend of luxury and high performance.

The new Genesis G70, however, won't be competing in a new market, as it is bound to fight its way in the mid-size sport sedan segment – considered as one of the most fiercely fought battlegrounds among premium vehicles. It will be competing against the likes of the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4, as well as the Alpha Romeo Giulia and the Cadillac ATS.

In this segment, one of the main selling points is the amount of sportiness that a competition could offer. Central to this is an engine that allows a luxury car to eke out a sporty performance.

We first saw the Galibier Concept eight years ago when Bugatti unveiled it. But today, it seems like they still have not given up on the development of an ultra-luxury sedan.

Wolfgang Durheimer, president of Bugatti, said in an interview with Automotive News that the four-door model "is not dead". Though he did not elaborate on this statement, he said that by 2018, its future will be determined by the Volkswagen Group executives.

If the automaker's plan pushes through, we can expect to see this model by 2024, and this model may actually replace the current Chiron, considering what Durheimer said will be a "one-model brand" for the future.

This BMW M760Li might be the car you are looking for if you are into yachts and sailing. As you know, the BMW 7-Series is the company’s range topping model, but now, it has partnered with Nautor’s Swan (which is known for their luxury sailing yachts). This special edition 760Li that comes with unique features was developed to honor 25 years of BMW Individual’s history.

To make the already luxurious model even more upscale, the company had to give it more upgrades. This includes unique brake calipers that have been finished in the same colour as the car, while wearing the exclusive Nautor’s Swan logo that only the exclusive model gets. The car also has the same logo affixed on the rear end. These are just some elements that you get on the outside, and most of the new luxury add-ons can be found in the cabin.

Details that will remind you of a yacht include teak wood paneling with joints filled precisely with a layer of rubber. This rubber helps the wood expand and contract when the climate changes, just like what you would find in a luxury sailing yacht. The trunk floor also gets carbon bonded wood components, matched with an Alcantara Smoke White finish.

Rolls-Royce has been around for decades now, and we have seen the Rolls-Royce Phantom for eight generations in the span of around 100 years. Of all models, this is probably the most luxurious model, beating all other luxury cars in the market. And that’s saying a lot.

The 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom can be customized to boast the utmost luxury ranging from veneers and leathers of the richest shades, to porcelain and gold-plated elements that you can put in your Phantom - basically the best of the best.

But before all that, it has to be equally presentable on the outside. The 2018 Phantom is looking very elegant and superior in its metal exterior, which can be had in a solid or a two-tone design. It has got flowing lines, a nice rear, and it sits on massive wheels.

Bentley Mulsanne is Mansory's latest project to date, and it looks much more stylish compared to some of the last ones they have tuned.

The ultra luxurious Mulsanne has been given just the right amount of facelift with additional carbon fiber details from the front bumper lip spoiler, and fog lamps surround. More carbon has been added in the form of side skirts, boot lid spoiler, and rear bumper diffuser.

What completes the new look of the limo would be the huge set of 22-inch forged wheels hugged by 285/35Z ultra-high performance tires on the front and rear axles. The hot wheels were of course, recommended by Mansory.

Audi is bent on building a full electric version for the 2018 Audi A8 model. This next generation of Audi A8 is currently under development and will be the series’ fourth instalment to date. Audi will be releasing the full details of the SUV sometime by the end of next year.

Much has been said about the new A8 and how it will be taking its cue from Audi’s Prologue concept vehicles. Thus, we can get a good picture of it somehow. Technically speaking, the upcoming Audi A8 will be using the MLB evo blueprint otherwise known as the MLB 2. Some Bentley Bentayga vehicle models have already used the same architecture as with the Volkswagen Group’s A4 and Q7.

Soon after Audi introduces the new A8 model, the German brand will shift their attention to manufacturing the Audi e-tron in Belgium. The e-Tron is Audi’s first all-electric vehicle. Having said that, the e-tron is also an electric SUV and will be sharing the same MLB evo platform just like the one used in Audi’s Q7.

Bentley Motors recently announced the full details of the new Mulsanne, the brand’s most exclusive car which represents Bentley’s pinnacle in car luxury. The company did not hold back in the creation of the Mulsanne, its flagship.

From its creation in Crewe, England, the Mulsanne is painstakingly handcrafted by the most skilled artisans, eventually creating a masterpiece – a testament to Bentley’s heritage.

Have you ever ridden in a car that’s controlled by a piloted driving system? Well, movie star Daniel Brühl and girlfriend Felicitas Rombold just did. Brühl and Rombold were picked up by a 12-cylinder, long-wheelbase Audi A8 L W12 – without a conventional driver – from their hotel in Berlin.

It successfully drove them to the Berlinale Palast for the Berlinale Film Festival. This red-carpet event was a special occasion not only for the internationally renowned actor but also for Audi, which in the process achieved another milestone to its piloted driving strategy.

The Audi A8 L W12 was able to achieve its mission in a smooth manner by logging prominent architectural features along the driving route and comparing this log with precise mapping. The resulting information is then synchronized with data from its own calculation of its movements.

Raring to see what the Genesis G90 large luxury sedan looks like? Well, it might be better to get a glimpse at the first rendering of Hyundai Motor’s range topper. At most, this rendering of the Genesis G90 – dubbed as the EQ900 in South Korea – provides a preview of the brand’s design identity as well as the direction that its styling is targeted to have for the future.

This is quite expected of the G90, since after all, it is Genesis’ flagship model that will set the tone for the brand’s blast-off into the world of luxury autos. Featuring the Genesis brand’s design style ‘Athletic Elegance,’ as interpreted by the Prestige Design Division, the G90 comes with elegant yet significant proportions.

Its Athletic Elegance its further exuded by a grand radiator grille that features the Genesis emblem and is accentuated by sophisticated headlamps. Moreover, the G90’s Athletic Elegance is conveyed by an exterior theme that flows across its entire body length to its long rear lamp cluster.

Lexus may be developing a hybrid model with the LS450h badge that uses a highly different approach from the existing model. This hybrid version of its flagship LS sedan may get V8 power from a hybrid V6 drivetrain, according to Ketan Renade, the product planner for the big luxury sedan. In comparison, an electric motor is used on the current LS hybrid to boost a V8 gasoline engine to an even higher level.

Renade commended that even with the previous efforts of the Toyota luxury division to convince consumers that hybrid technology is a performance gain, it is seen by consumers as a method to be more fuel-efficient.

Renade said that if Lexus actually does build a hybrid Lexus LS in the future, it would be a V6 hybrid. Lexus first hinted at this revision in hybrid development in the new ES300h, which features a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and electric motor to produce 200 hp, a drop from the gasoline V6 model that delivers 268 hp. It’s likely that a hybrid V6 LS would use the existing powertrain used in the GS450h, which offers 338 hp and a 29 mpg city, 34 mpg highway rating.

A new high class trim level is now available for Bentley’s Mulsanne. Dubbed as the Executive Interior, this package offers a high level of prestige and personalization to the Mulsanne. This offers the newest advances in multimedia connectivity to its flagship. Two options are available in this high class trim level: either the theater specification or the iPad spec executive interior.

Building one Mulsanne takes 170 hours to complete. Some of the bespoke options on the car need a certain skill to install. According to Alasdair Stewart, a member of the board for sales and marketing, he is “confident” that customers will find what they’re expecting for from the Mulsanne whether they’re looking for a “business-focused environment” or a for a place where they can relax and enjoy films, music, television and the internet.

The theater specification Mulsanne is equipped with a 15.6 inch HD LED screen, which flips down out of the roof for both rear seat passengers to take pleasure in. It will also come with an eight-inch screen in each headrest so that occupants can separately enjoy their entertainment if they chose to do so. An iPod touch controls the system, enabling the occupants to control all the multi-media via a Bentley app.

Kia hasn’t confirmed if its first rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan would be sold in the U.S. Kia has been bringing the big sporty GT concept to different stops throughout the show circuit. The GT is scheduled to appear in four U.S. shows and one in Canada. With this model, Kia will enter the segment that’s occupied by the Audi 6, BMW 5 series, Mercedes-Benz E class as well as the Hyundai Equus.

Days ago, Kia Motors Corp. revealed that the sedan will be introduced in Korea by this summer. Its production car, code-named KH, will be sold worldwide. A lot of the GT's design will show up on the KH, which is built on the same platform as Hyundai's Equus sedan.

Currently, the most expensive sedan in the U.S. from Kia is the Optima Limited, which is priced by about $35,000. If the KH is sold in the U.S., it’s presumed to be similarly priced to the Equus, which ranges from about $59,000 to $66,000. According to Tom Loveless, Kia's North American sales chief, if the rwd sedan is offered the U.S., it would be positioned above the Credenza (a new Kia sedan that starts selling next year).
