2017 MINI Cooper Countryman S Test Drive Review

When MINI first ventured out from its iconic hatchbacks to create the Countryman in 2010, this premium small crossover segment hadn’t even hit its stride, but today, this segment is cluttered with luxury badged CUVs like the INFINITI QX30, Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Audi Q3. Looking to keep ahead of the ever-growing competition, the all-new 2017 MINI Cooper Countryman S brings a unique level of styling and sportiness to this exciting segment. Billed as the “biggest, most adventurous MINI yet,” the 2017 MINI Cooper Countryman might be a…

From crossovers to SUVs to minivans, there are so many options out there for a good family vehicle, so why not choose something that looks cool and is fun to drive? Meet the 2017 Mazda CX-9.

2017 Audi A3 Sedan Test Drive Review

Your mom always told you to never judge a book by its cover, and the 2017 Audi A3 Sedan is a great reason why. While this sedan is a compact car and it’s the lowest-priced model in Audi’s lineup, it is far from an economy car.

2017 INFINITI Q70L Test Drive Review

With China emerging as a major automotive market, automakers are finding new ways to appeal to that market, and long-wheelbase luxury sedans are currently the best way. It didn’t take long for INFINITI to realize that Americans, too, love these stretched models, and they have begun offering them here with the stretched QX50 crossover and the 2017 INFINITI Q70L. INFINITI says that stretching the wheelbase of its midsize Q70 by almost six inches (5.9 inches to be exact) has allowed the Q70L to deliver “SUV rear legroom in a performance…
