2016 Audi TTS sports car fun at its finest

2016 Audi TTS sports car fun at its finest

The Audi TT exterior design is one that can be considered a bit polarizing, either you like it or you don’t. In most cases the design has been a winner with sports car enthusiasts. With a full redesign for model year 2016 the TT has become a bit more aggressive with, as usual for Audi […]

2016 Cadillac ATS 3.6 AWD Premium review: Looks aren’t everthing

2016 Cadillac ATS 3.6 AWD Premium review: Looks aren’t everthing

It doesn’t look different. Ah, but it is, just not in what you can see. The Cadillac ATS was introduced in the 2013 model year, and this is 2016. Normally that would mean a mid-generational update, a facelift or something. But here’s the 2016—with no changes to the bumpers, grille, trim or lights for the […]

2016 Infiniti Q70L road test: A luxury sedan wrapped around serious muscle

2016 Infiniti Q70L road test: A luxury sedan wrapped around serious muscle

After spending a week with the 2016 Q70L, Infiniti’s top-of-the-line sedan, I must say the experience came across as somewhat of a guilty pleasure. The guilt, or at least a trace of it, came from traveling a couple hundred miles to nowhere in a mid-size rear-wheel-drive sedan that returned an average of less than 19 […]

2016 Chevrolet Malibu LT review: Growing up

2016 Chevrolet Malibu LT review: Growing up

It’s common, if not universal, for an automobile model to grow over the years, to become longer overall with a longer wheelbase. But not usually like this. The new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu grew itself right into Chevrolet Impala territory. Check the numbers: The wheelbase of the new 2016 Malibu is 111.4 inches.  The wheelbase of […]

2016 BMW 340i xDrive review: Uh-oh

2016 BMW 340i xDrive review: Uh-oh

“How are you today, sir?” “Not as well I think than I was doing a few moments ago.” The cop almost apologized for pulling me over. I was actually quite a bit over the posted limit but, as Officer Friendly pointed out, there was a short section of road that was posted at 30 mph. […]

2016 Infiniti QX80 road test: Big, bold, luxurious and expensive

2016 Infiniti QX80 road test: Big, bold, luxurious and expensive

It’s called the 2016 Infiniti QX80, but you might recall it better as simply the QX or maybe even the QX56. Yes, name changes can be confusing, and I frankly am at a loss as to why so many manufacturers choose to confound us. But, no matter the moniker, we are talking about the Japanese […]

Camaro SS produces more emotions than an entire amusement park

Camaro SS produces more emotions than an entire amusement park

If you are a dyed in the wool American car enthusiasts you know how the rumble of a big V-8 can get the hairs on the back of your neck to stand. There is no exhaust rumble like that of big cubes, as in cubic inches. Though the nomenclature has changed from cubic inches to […]

2015 Kia Sedona Long-Term Review Update: Between a rock and a…

2015 Kia Sedona Long-Term Review Update: Between a rock and a…

  We’ve put 10,000 miles on our long-term Kia Sedona since our last update here at Carbuzzard.com. It hasn’t been that long between write ups; we just really, really, really love driving this multi-purpose (don’t call it a mini) van. During that period, we’ve completed its 22,000-mile service (next one due at 30,000), replaced a […]

2016 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD Drive-E: Time for a change

2016 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD Drive-E: Time for a change

  The automotive industry is a lot like the fashion world; to quote Heidi Klum, “one day you’re in, the next day you’re out.” The Volvo XC60 is a lot like the designer who got kicked off Project Runway, not because he wasn’t good, but because he wasn’t as good or better than the others. […]

2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Altitude 4×4 review: Wider and higher

2016 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Altitude 4×4 review: Wider and higher

Our first sojourn with the Jeep Cherokee was with trail-rated 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, and then the top of the line 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited, which was fine for us because we got to evaluate all the toys and tools. But as we noted at the time, we didn’t get to evaluate the base Sport […]

2016 Kia Sorento SXL AWD: Does it live up to our hype?

2016 Kia Sorento SXL AWD: Does it live up to our hype?

Not that long ago, we spent a few really cold days in Tahoe, California, driving around in the new Kia Sorento. And while initial impressions are good, we like to get the vehicle back for an extended drive to see if what we liked the first time around holds up when we actually use for […]

2017 Cadillac XT5 elevates crossover luxury to new levels

2017 Cadillac XT5 elevates crossover luxury to new levels

With some reserve, I slipped behind the wheel of the all-new Cadillac XT5 with my roadie partner for a drive of this brand new Cadillac along with interior designer Phil Kucera sitting in the rear seat. Our reserve was not from having a Cadillac internal riding with, nor was it because we were concerned about […]
