Green Go Kart: 2019 MINI Cooper S E Countryman ALL4 Test Drive Review

We’re living in the age of MINI 2.0. It started on April 26, 2001. That’s when the first new MINI made under BMW’s corporate ownership rolled off of the assembly line in Oxford, England. The Chili Red Cooper two-door with white roof and mirror caps bore an undeniable resemblance to the original Mini launched in 1959, but it was meant to lead the brand into the future. Since then, the MINI brand has expanded its vehicle lineup significantly. Of course, you can still get the iconic Cooper two-door hatchback. MINI…

Distinctive and Luxurious: 2019 Nissan Maxima Platinum Test Drive

Traditional sedans have seen better days. Legendary nameplates such Impala and Taurus will soon no longer be available in the North American market. The good news is that certain legendary sedans, such as the Camry and Accord, are still around. So is the Nissan Maxima, a fixture in the four-door segment for more than 30 years. In fact, Nissan refreshed it for the 2019 model year inside and out.

Unwrapped and Unleashed: 2019 Lexus LC 500 Test Drive Review

When it’s your birthday, you have the perfect excuse to treat yourself. Go to your favorite restaurant. Surround yourself with all of the people you love and care about. You can forget about your diet for a few hours. No one will hold it against you if you have a piece of your own birthday cake (it would be rude not to). If you have the means, you can even get yourself that new car you’ve had your eye on. That’s what I did for my 35th birthday. Sort of….

Muscle SUV: 2019 Dodge Durango SRT Test Drive

Movies are full of familiar stories. There’s the classic boy-meets-girl. Then there’s the monster-wreaks-havoc-on-a-city. And let’s not forget the underdog-overcomes-great-odds-to-achieve-victory. So is the automotive enthusiast world. We’ve all met at least one person who fell in love with a particular car when they were a kid and saved up enough money to buy one when they were an adult. Unfortunately, the story for a lot of muscle cars ends the same way: Someone gets one, enjoys it for several years, gets married, then ends up having to sell it because…
