Mercedes-Benz GLK350 2013: Full Review – Part 1

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 is the closest thing that we’ve got this generation to a wagon version of the C350 sport sedan with which it shares its platform and 3.5-liter, V-6 engine. “But wait,” you’re probably saying as you look at the photos above, “isn’t that a big SUV?” I can understand your confusion; conventional […]

Torque exits the engine via a single-option seven-speed automatic transmission before heading to the wheels.

The 2013 M5 is one potent road machine, even more so than the M3. If you don’t live near a good racetrack that hosts track days, don’t buy one; 99 percent of its potential will go to waste. And drivers who think sports cars and technology don’t mix should also steer clear, as the M5 […]

BMW M5 2013: Full Review – Part 3

Push the three performance-setting buttons on the console once, and the M5 goes into Sport mode. The suspension takes on a notably stiffer quality, the wheel tightens up, giving more road feedback through its hydraulic power-steering boost, and the gas pedal becomes a more sensitive instrument. These settings work best for serpentine back roads with […]
