The Friday Five:The Crossed Corolla, Smart Cadillacs, Clean NYC Edition
This week was a busy one. Over Labor Day weekend, Mercedes-Benz announced several new electric vehicles during the IAA Mobility Show in Munich. They include the 2023 EQB SUV, the 2023 EQE sedan, the 2022 AMG EQS, and the Concept EQG. That latter model is an electric G Wagen, and Mercedes says it will go into production in a few years.
Hyundai Motor Group also made waves this week. It announced its vision of a hydrogen-powered society, calling its contributions to the future the Hydrogen Wave. Shorter-term, the 2022 Genesis G80 lineup adds a spiffy new Sport trim.
Honda wants you to perceive its SUVs and Ridgeline pickup truck as rugged, so it is rolling out a new TrailSport line of models with off-roading aspirations. If the automaker’s teaser image is any indication, the first Honda to get the treatment is the 2022 Passport.
Speaking of off-roaders, the electric Rivian R1S SUV and R1T pickup truck got official driving range ratings for their midsize battery pack this week. We’ve also got an in-depth comparison of the Ford Bronco and Toyota 4Runner for your consideration.
New reviews published this week cover the aging Infiniti Q50 sedan, the redesigned Infiniti QX60 SUV, and the freshened Lexus ES in its new ES 300h F Sport trim. And if you’ve ever wondered what a post-collision automatic braking system is, we’ve got an explainer for you.
But, believe it or not, that’s not everything that was happening in the automotive space.
