2020 Lincoln Aviator, Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye, 2020 Porsche Macan: The Week In Reverse

We took a spin in the 2020 Lincoln Aviator; the 2021 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody was spied; we revisited the Porsche Macan. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

We drove the 2020 Lincoln Aviator Reserve and had a delightful luxury experience. In an age of often over-complicated luxury, the Aviator simplifies the driving experience with easy-to-use controls, hard buttons and knobs instead of multi-level menus, and interfaces that don’t overwhelm. Our tester was a pre-production model with a few fit and finish issues that will hopefully be remedied in production models.

The first McLaren Speedtail was delivered to its owner at a McLaren dealership in Brussels, Belgium. The owner chose a shade of purple. The McLaren looks like a spaceship and is meant as the ultimate grand tourer with a three-seat layout, 1,055 horsepower, and 848 pound-feet of torque.

Best Gas Mileage Cars – Most Fuel-Efficient Cars for 2020

Though marketed as an SUV, the 2019 Kia Niro Plug-In Hybrid is much closer to its Ioniq sibling than a true crossover. Ground clearance is only marginally better than most hatchbacks, and all-wheel drive is not available. Moreover, the Niro’s cargo area measures smaller than the Ioniq’s, it offers less all-electric range (29 miles versus 26), gas-only fuel economy is worse, and the Kia costs more. In short, there’s not much reason to consider the Niro Plug-In over the Ioniq, but it still gets good gas mileage overall.

This 1993 Puch 500 GE is an Ultra-Rare Variant of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Ceci n’est pas une Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. Well, this is a G-Wagen, it just isn’t a Mercedes G-Wagen. Confused yet? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one. The family tree of the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen is gnarled and expansive, with an inordinate number of special editions and military versions that we Americans never even got wind of, let alone bought from a dealer.

Heck, we have a hard time imagining a stripped-out utilitarian version of the blinged-out rolling clout-box that is our version of the G-Class here in the States. Since we first got our greedy little hands on the G-Class in 2001, Mercedes has only offered the leather-lined luxury variant of the venerable G to America, while the rest of the world enjoys the full range of off-road scented flavors.

That’s not to say you can’t wrangle a luxury G-Wagen in Europe, it’s just that you have to make
