  1. Yay Audi won🥳🥳 no hate to other car company all the cars on the list were great 👍🏻 but I like Audi a lot so thats why I’m happy

  2. Being a BMW fanboy Audi honestly deserves that win good on them🤝👏👏🔥stunning looking cars they are coming out with

  3. new fans: WTF WHY DIDN’T YOU INCLUDE BRABUS’$ VERSION OF THE MERCEDE$ AMG G63

    like this was the cars of 2018, the Brabus didn’t even get reviewed yet….

  4. I actually went to a Volvo dealership with my dad who was searching for a nice family car (either a wagon or SUV).
    Practicality wise all of them were disappointing, the cars appear very big on the outside but are pretty cramped on the inside, safe maybe for the V90, and still.. (note: my dad, brother and I are quite tall and husky but still, I don't think that average sized people will feel comfortable with the space given) the center consoles are ridiculously larges too.
    Regarding interior built quality, there is no competition with similarly priced German cars which feel, overall, more special.
    Engines and driving dynamics aren' that note worthy either.
    Left the dealership pretty disappointed since I really liked Volvo (especially the 850!), their current prices are, in my opinion, largely based on their current trendiness rather than actual desirability (safe from the exterior designs that are really good).
