2017 Jaguar F-PACE first drive review: From the wild trails to the mean streets this cat can travel

2017 Jaguar F-PACE first drive review: From the wild trails to the mean streets this cat can travel

The Jaguar F-PACE is perhaps the definitive premium luxury SUV. Jaguar set out to design and engineer a sport utility that would first and foremost be a Jaguar. The F-PACE embodies the personality Jaguar vehicles have radiated for years. You can quickly see the design ties the F-PACE has to Jaguar’s super cool sports car […]

2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E review: It’s alive!

2017 Honda Ridgeline RTL-E review: It’s alive!

Everyone knew the Honda Ridgeline was dead. The sales of the unitbody pickup with the peculiar profile had been somewhat underwhelming in a booming segment of the motor vehicle market. It had arrived for 2005, hit is peak sales of just over 50,000 units in its second year, but by 2014 had sunk to just […]

2016 Nissan Altima SL revisited: Practicality, luxury and, oh, those mpgs

2016 Nissan Altima SL revisited: Practicality, luxury and, oh, those mpgs

A few months ago, I spent some time with a top-of-the-line 2016 Nissan Altima SL and found it to be well appointed, practical transportation for a family of four. Recently, I took a more extensive journey in a nearly identical Altima and realized that the mid-size Japanese sedan has a very important feature that I […]

2017 Honda Accord Coupe V-6 EX-L review: The sound of  science

2017 Honda Accord Coupe V-6 EX-L review: The sound of science

The exhaust note of the 2017 Accord Coupe says it all. It’s not too loud, too aggressive, or too intrusive. Rather it’s sweet, smooth and subtle, and while perhaps our 2017 Honda Accord EX-L test vehicle isn’t a righteous hardcore sports coupe, it’s smart, sporty and proper transportation for two, and the occasional additional small […]

2016 Kia K900 V-6 Luxury VIP road trip review: It’s very nice…but how thrifty the six?

2016 Kia K900 V-6 Luxury VIP road trip review: It’s very nice…but how thrifty the six?

Last year, when Kia introduced the K900, it was with a V-8 engine only. Kia wanted to make the proper first impression, and a V-6 wouldn’t have done that, at least not by counting cylinders. And we’ll have to admit, our first take on V-8-powered K900 was surprise, not just from the significant jump in […]

2016 Audi Q3 first drive review: Larger than it appears

2016 Audi Q3 first drive review: Larger than it appears

Do not let the small footprint cast by the 2016 Audi Q3 fool you; there is plenty of space inside this compact SUV/Crossover. It may not have as much cargo capacity as others in this category, but what it lacks here it makes up in triplicate with performance, spirited handling and interior accommodations. In a […]

2017 Kia Sportage SX AWD road test: A small fish in a large pond makes a big splash

2017 Kia Sportage SX AWD road test: A small fish in a large pond makes a big splash

  Kia’s new Sportage is much like the company overall: on a roll. Sales numbers have almost doubled year over year, and while the Sportage may not be up there with the likes of established, cemented vehicles like the Honda CR-V or Ford Escape, a lot of buyers are understanding that the Kia offers a […]

2016 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro review: What you need to go everywhere

The 2016Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is the most rugged member of the Tundra lineup, specially equipped to zip across desert wastelands, climb right over rocky mountain terrain, conquer severe weather and leap over tall buildings in a single bound. Okay, the part about the tall buildings may be a bit of exaggeration and, truth to […]

2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X review: More than a pretty face?

2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X review: More than a pretty face?

In early years the GMC version of the full-sized General Motors pickup truck had grown to have a reputation of being the gentleman’s pickup, when the Chevrolet version was deemed the workingman’s truck. Today that is a bit of a misnomer; no, actually today that has no basis in fact. The GMC Sierra is just […]

2015 Kia Sedona long-term review update: The shining star continues to glow

Have you ever wanted to say I told you so? Of course you have. We all have, and most of us have said it once or 100 times. Sure, it’s smug, but those who say it mean they we’re right about something that hadn’t happened yet. Well, we’ve been saying for the past 16 months […]

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Inscription review: How to make a German engineer jealous

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Inscription review: How to make a German engineer jealous

The original XC90 was virgin territory for Volvo in 2002. Volvo was a company that had entertained owners with decades of station wagons but had steadfastly resisted the siren call of the SUV and crossover. Volvo needn’t have worried, other than to think, what took us so long? The XC90 was an instant hit, becoming […]
