It will be interesting to see how long turbos rule, and how soon BEV's saturate the market; only time will tell once Benz and Audi unleash their more affordable semi-luxury BEV's in 2018.

TMC can be very innovative when it wants to.

Any good reason for no built-in dash cam recorders?

Then we could have four built-in camera recorders, with two built into the wing mirrors.

Actually, another tip on the ES vs GS.

There could be an all new 7ES released in 2017 for the 2018 model year?
