2014 Range Rover Evoque Test Drive

Capable on- and off-road, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque is a compact luxury SUV that emphasizes style over utility. A wedge shape, low roofline and a high beltline give the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque a unique and sexy look that ultimately limits interior cargo space. Fortunately, Land Rover also offers the compact LR2 for individuals willing to forgo style for utility. Like the BMW X3 xDrive28i with which it competes, the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque uses a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The result is a…

2015 Acura MDX Review

Reviewing crossovers can seem to be a bit redundant, mainly because majority of them all tend to drive the same. None are particularly displeasing to drive or be in and yet, they don’t really rustle the jimmies or invoke the sort of excitement otherwise associated with more interesting vehicles. But I can certainly think of many other worse things than being stuck driving the picturesque soccer mom/dad car, things like surrendering to mass transportation or, losing your leg. And some crossovers tend to embody the very roots they were built on, which…

2014 Mazda Miata MX-5 Review

It could be from the fact that a convertible is a one-of-a-kind experience, but size does not matter. There’s really no other feeling like having the wind in your hair and a million miles of headroom, whether you’re in a lazy 1970 Cadillac DeVille or a compact MGB. Since it isn’t as much about the size as it is the motion, the motion gets better as you get smaller. And the Mazda Miata has been a poster child for pint-sized convertibles since 1989. The Miata is a globally and universally accepted choice for cheap…

2015 Kia K900 Review

Let’s say you’re in the market for a full-size luxury sedan. Immediately without giving it an extra thought, some automakers should come instinctively to mind. BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Jaguar, and even Maserati. These are all brands that are as normal to the realm of the executive sedan as Rolex and Breitling are to luxury timepieces. And nobody can deny that in this well-established sea of full-size luxury land yachts, new comers don’t exactly have it easy as the preexisting champions are barely impenetrable. But recently, there surprisingly have been an addition or two,…

2015 Kia Sorento AWD Review

Kia is South Korea’s oldest automaker and the Sorento is a perennial choice in the crossover world. It’s as commonly cross-shopped in this segment as LG or Samsung and home appliances. Like majority of SUV crossovers, it started life in the early 2000s as a mesh between a classic body-on-frame truck and a station wagon on stilts–and it sold very well. Though the Sorento is as much of a success inside North America as it is outside, so the Sorento isn’t bespoke to us Americans only and it doesn’t attribute all…
