2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the
Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner
system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle
handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear
wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque
to the front axle if needed.
The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically
for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the
power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake
limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an
advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes
torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road
and driving conditions." according to Infiniti.
So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road)
when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this
All-wheel-drive mashup review.

2015 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2014 Infiniti Q70 - Video Comparison
The 2015 Kia K900 enters the large luxury sedan segment against tough
It offers more features for less money than the mid-size German cars Kia
would like it to go up against--the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and
Mercedes-Benz E-Class--but we don't think those are really its competitors.
Instead, it likely competes with rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive large
sedans from another set of premium/luxury brands.
First among them would be its sibling the Hyundai Genesis (and the larger
Hyundai Equus as well), which has just been restyled with a look that's as
extroverted as the K900 is conservative (and offers the same two engines as
the Kia to boot).
The Cadillac CTS is also more extroverted, and more of a driver's car, with
a flashier interior and higher performance versions on the way.
The Infiniti Q70 (nee M lineup) is one of the older models in the group,
but its lines remain striking every after several years; finally, the Acura
RLX handles surprisingly well and offers a hybrid model, as does the
With neither hybrid or diesel alternatives nor the option of all-wheel
drive, the K900 may find its market somewhat limited--but it's a good first
effort in a tough segment.
