2014 Hyundai Equus

A Lesson In How To Out-Lexus The LS I think that the new BMW 4 Series is an attractive coupe.

    Report: Kia dealers report K900 flagship RWD sedan is coming to US

    Kia has told dealers that it will bring a $50,000 to $70,000, rear-drive flagship sedan to the United States early in 2014, although it won't be called what you think. Instead of the unloved Quoris name, the full-size sedan will be called the K900. That name change is a welcomed one, judging by our initial reactions to Quoris. Names aside, though, the ...
