2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Test Drive Review

The 2018 model year is going to be an important one for Volkswagen as it launches a pair of crossovers into highly competitive segments. After testing the mid-size Atlas crossover in August, we were able to get some seat time in the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. The first-gen Tiguan – which interestingly will live on as the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited – launched in 2008, and while it was a sporty option in the segment, it was undersized with lackluster fuel economy. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is still classified as a…

2017 Lexus ES 350 Test Drive Review

Earlier this year, I had the chance to test drive the fuel-efficient Lexus ES 300h luxury hybrid, and the latest car to show up in my driveway is the non-hybrid 2017 Lexus ES 350. My overall thoughts proved to be very positive for the ES 300h as an efficient and spacious luxury sedan with no pretensions of sportiness, so I didn’t expect too many surprises on the ES 350. With that in mind, I used my week with the 2017 Lexus ES 350 to see if whether the sacrifices made…

2017 Lexus GS 200t Test Drive Review

In the world of luxury sedans, there is nothing worse than lacking a true rival for a competitor’s vehicle. When the 2017 Lexus GS 200t was introduced last year, it wasn’t built to lower the GS’ price or improve its efficiency (although both did happen). No, it was created for the sole purpose of giving Lexus a true apples-to-apples offering to go up against the BMW 530i, Mercedes-Benz E300, Cadillac CTS – like the GS 200t, these sedans all come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and rear-wheel drive. Lexus has…

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Test Drive Review

The Mazda Miata has been around for 27 years, and this car has remained relatively true to the original car with the greatest technological advancement being the introduction of a Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT) model in 2006. By the end of the production run of the third-generation “NC” Miata, almost 60 percent of the cars were PRHT models. Since the customer is always right, meet the beautiful 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF; if you’re wondering, RF stands for Retractable Fastback. Without adding too much complexity, weight or cost, the…
