Updated 2016 Audi A6 Got Good Result in IIHS Small Overlap Test

For those who are in the market of buying the Audi A6, if the bigger discount on the 2015 model seems tempting to you, you may want to think twice now, since the 2016 model has some fundamental enhancements which you should seriously consider.


You may have already known major changes in the 2016 A6 are in:

– Upgraded engine output (2.0T: 220hp => 252hp, 3.0T: 310hp => 333hp)
– Minor tweaks to the exterior styling
– Better graphic chips for the LCD display

However, there is at least one more critical improvement made to the 2016 model: the front-end and passenger cabin structure are strengthened, and are more stiff to achieve the “Good” rating in the latest IIHS small ove...

The 2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 V8: Short Test Drive Review

2015 Hyundai Genesis Test Drive

We had a chance to test drive the 2015 Hyundai Genesis sedan. Let’s see what we had to say about it!


The Genesis we test drove is the 5.0 V8 RWD trim, with the Ultimate Package worth of $3,250. Total MSRP is $55,855 (including $950 S&H). I mean, if we are going to test drive something, we are going to do it right!


The 2015 Genesis is classified as a mid-size luxury sedan, however we don’t consider it to be mid-size only, because it qualifies as the “full-size” name in almost all aspects. For example, the Genesis sedan has a wheelbase of 118.5in, even longer than the Audi A8 (of 117.8in) and the Lexus LS (of 116.9in)...

Farewell to the First-Gen Hyundai Genesis – A Test Drive Review

I can still remember that back in the days during Christmas seasons of 2008 and the beginning of 2009, advertisements and short promotion films about the Hyundai Genesis were flooding the US auto market, on TVs, radios and internet media. For example there was an advertisement showing a Hyundai engineer armed with a slide calipers, measuring gaps between body panels of the Genesis and its competitors such as BMW, Audi etc., and claimed the fit of Genesis is superior to its competitors. There were also claims about the Genesis is faster than xxx, and quieter than yyy etc.

The most important thing is that the 2009 model year Genesis MSRP only starts at a little bit over $30...

2015 Hyundai Genesis Prevails in Crash Test

Yesterday the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) release crash test results for the new generation Hyundai Genesis sedan.

From the compartment intrusion measurement data on small overlap front test, moderate overlap front test, the performance of the Genesis sedan is superb. Look at the below photo after the small overlap front test, there is minimal shape changes for the safety cage; from the actual measurement data, the Genesis small overlap front intrusion is even better than some other cars’ moderate overlap test result.


For the side impact test, the Genesis performs OK, not bad but not the 1st class one...
