2018 Toyota CH-R XLE Premium Test Drive Review

There is no doubt that subcompact crossovers are taking over the world. When you take a look at two of the latest offerings by Honda (with the HR-V) and Mazda (with the CX-3) you’ll realize that these tiny utility vehicles are perfect for those that live in urban areas and want to bring along their friends and family for a quick trip to suburbia.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Limited Test Drive Review

Looking at last year’s sales figures, there’s no doubt that crossovers are quickly replacing sedans as the official vehicle of American families. But don’t expect automakers to give up on this market as easily as they did with station wagons and minivans.

Looking to combat this trend, the 2018 Hyundai Sonata has been heavily updated just a few years after the current model was introduced for the…

2018 Volkswagen Golf S Manual Test Drive Review

This is the 2018 Volkswagen Golf S and it’s the basest “base” model Golf currently on sale. It’s got cloth seats, a 5-speed manual transmission and very little in the way of high-luxury.

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar Test Drive Review

There’s a huge difference between a fling and a relationship. Late last year, we spent an entire day with the all-new 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar, the fourth member of the Range Rover lineup. And what a day it was. We met it at a picturesque boutique hotel, then went on an adventure with it through the desert scenery of Palm Springs, California. We stopped off for snacks, then went for a hike through terrain that would look perfect on a post card. Over the course of the day,…

F is for Fun: Lexus IS 350 F Sport Test Drive Review

In the eternal words of Ferris Bueller, “life moves pretty fast.” And that’s especially for automakers competing in compact luxury sedan segment. When the third-gen Lexus IS surfaced four years ago, competition came primarily from German automakers, but in recent years, a new breed of small, fun and affordable luxury sedans have surfaced including the Infiniti Q50, Jaguar XE and the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Ever since its launch, Lexus has made tweaks to the IS to keep it relevant against its rivals, and the 2017 model year is no different…
