2017 Toyota Corolla iM Test Drive Review

There’s no denying the Toyota Corolla is a force to be reckoned with in the compact sedan segment, but where the Corolla can boast being the world’s best-selling nameplate, many of its competitors have become enthusiast icons. The 2017 Toyota Corolla iM brings some much-needed edginess to the Corolla lineup. The market for compact hatchbacks has grown in popularity since the Toyota Matrix disappeared in 2013, but the introduction of the 2016 Scion iM gave most Toyota showrooms a worthy vehicle for this segment. With the Scion brand being phased…

A quick glance at the current compact cars available on the market, and it isn’t hard to see how far this segment has come in the last several years.

With their practicality, size, comfort and value, it’s not hard to see why compact crossovers are so loved, but vehicles in this segment tend to be lacking when it comes to style and excitement.

Compact crossovers have evolved immensely since the 1990s, and nowhere is this more evident than when comparing the 2017 Honda CR-V to the original…

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Test Drive Review

Small cars have always been a specialty of Mitsubishi, but from 1996 through 2014, the Japanese brand lacked any mainstream offering in the small car market. That all changed with the rebirth of the Mirage nameplate in 2014 (for the U.S.) market, and this lineup improves further with the introduction of the all-new 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan. Complementing the Mirage hatchback, the Mirage G4 gives Mitsubishi a low-cost, high-efficiency duo in the rapidly growing subcompact segment. Better yet, after a one-year hiatus, the addition of the G4 sedan marks…

2017 Toyota Prius Test Drive Review

After 20 years in production, the Toyota Prius has become a global icon for hybrid electric vehicles, but last year’s introduction of the four-generation Prius gave this fuel-sipping hatchback major improvements to style and handling. Although the standard 2017 Toyota Prius liftback carries over with no changes, the Prius lineup does get the advanced and ultra-efficient Prius Prime plug-in, which we’ll be testing in the near future. For now, though, our first seat time with the current hybrid is with the mid-level 2017 Toyota Prius Four loaded up with all…
