New Range Rover Sport Unveiled With Epic Dam Spillway Climb 
Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1652427381029 Featured+Range+Rover

Land Rover is no stranger to extreme marketing stunts, and the recent unveiling of their new Range Rover Sport aims to set the benchmark even higher than ever before.

Previous feats include a record-setting hill-climb at Pikes Peak, a first recorded crossing of the "Empty Quarter' desert in the Arabian Peninsula, and a first ascent of the 999 steps to Heaven’s Gate in China, in 2018. 

In a bid to demonstrate the dynamic capability of the new Range Rover Sport, the premium SUV was brought to Karahnjukar Dam in Iceland, where it was driven from the valley floor to the summit of the dam. Presenting itself as the final obstacle during the climb was the 294-metre stretch of spillway with fast moving water cascading down the 90-metre drop.

mReview: Audi S3 Sedan - The Getaway Car

Editors%2 Fimages%2 F1652428113465 Audis3

Audi’s entry-level performance four-door saloon is back, and it’s more than ready to tear up the competition (and tarmac). We find out just how capable the brand new S3 sedan is.

The S3 has always been the little brother of the Audi S range, both literally and figuratively. It has neither a fire-breathing monster of an engine that its bigger brethren are blessed with, nor does it possess an expansive lounge-like cabin to fully relax in whenever you’re not tossing the car around corners like a madman.

But that’s not to say that the S3 is a pseudo-S. Far from it, in fact. It’s still packed with Audi’s famous Quattro all-wheel-drive system and powered by a punchy turbocharged four-pot engine; all sitting on an excellent proven chassis. 

And with relatively compact dimensions, the S3 is quickly starting to sound like a viable proposition for those seeking a race kart-esque car.

2022 Volkswagen Touareg is a hidden luxury gem! | mReview

You've probably never really seen a Volkswagen Touareg on the roads before and that is because most people are unaware that it exists. In the 2022 model, your right leg has 335bhp and 450Nm of torque at its disposal, coupled with all-wheel steering and its permanent all-wheel drive system dubbed 4MOTION. Even better, there are more drive modes than you actually might use! Here's a suggestion: Why don't you take this car for a spin with its snow driving mode? Use the cooling seat function while you're at it.
