  • MBUX TO DEBUT ON MERCEDES-BENZ A-CLASS

    If you’ve ever jumped into a Mercedes-Benz there’s a possibility one thing stuck out, the infotainment system COMAND. For me I’ve never thought it was an appropriate system for such a prestigious brand. It’s difficult to navigate, bland on the graphics front and more of an annoyance than help....
  • Genovation GXE Corvette

    If we had to pick the ultimate head-turner here at CES, it has to be the Geneovation GXE. This is one hell of an achievement from an independent company based here in the US at Rockville, Maryland. What they have done is turn a C7 Grand Sport Corvette into...

  • Continental Unveils Automated Trailer Hitching

    When it comes to hitching a trailer, I bet most seasoned drivers think they’re a pro at it. Sure, reversing cameras make backing onto a tow ball far easier than ever before, but do you really nail it 100 per cent of the time? Continental has developed a system...
