Quick Drive: Behind the wheel of the 2016 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 may not exactly be the enthusiast’s choice for a compact crossover SUV–let’s face it, what crossover really is meant for the driving enthusiast? Either way, that doesn’t hide the fact that it remains to be a popular seller while even being one of Toyota’s most common selling models. So they must be […]

Review: The 2016 Toyota Yaris SE with a five-speed manual proves going back to basics doesn’t suck

We test drive the 2016 Toyota Yaris with the sporty SE package and a five-speed manual to see if they make it better. Economy cars are meant to meet the basic automotive needs in life. The trouble is, nobody likes basic, regardless of how much pumpkin spice is involved. So you can imagine how unexcited […]

First Drive: A track day with the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, the M3 BMW should be making

We track-test the hotly-anticipated 2016 Cadillac ATS-V for a day at the Lower Hudson Valley’s automotive mecca, Monticello Motor Club. It’s as good as you heard it to be. Storming down the back straight and flat-out through “The Kink” at Monticello Motor Club, I felt the rear confidently plant itself into the bank. Neatly and […]

2015 Buick Encore AWD Review

Review: I spent three weeks with a 2015 Buick Encore and didn’t totally hate it

A NYC cab fulfilled its stereotype, forcing my car to the body shop, forcing me into a new CUV. Did I hate it? Aside from sampling them for review purposes, I don’t particularly have any affinity towards crossover SUVs. But I was unfortunately forced into one when a New York City cabby decided to fulfill […]

First Drive: The 2016 Hyundai Tucson Limited improves upon itself in every single way

Note: All interior photos provided by Hyundai North America When I was flown out to the media launch event for the all-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson, in Minneapolis, all I could think of was: oh, jeeze–here we go again with reviewing another crossover SUV. Why “here we go again?” Because reviewing crossovers can be just as overwhelmingly […]

Quick Drive: The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport by AutoNation

The 2015 Land Rover Discovery Sport’s mission is simple–to replace and allow us to forget the rather uninteresting LR2, or formerly the Freelander. It was revealed at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show and has begun hitting showrooms, not too long ago. It’s built on land Rover’s new LR-MS D8 platform, which is a heavily modified […]

Video: 2015 Porsche Macan S Review by AutoNation

Porsche’s known for several things–the squashed Beetle of a 911, being ridiculously expensive, and just an overall benchmark in the name of everything sports cars. So when they decided to experiment with the Cayenne, thanks to supportive roots from Volkswagen and the Touareg, we all thought they were mad…madly successful. To date, it’s Porsche’s most […]

When Chrysler and Dodge revealed the Charger and Challenger Hellcat, they took the world by storm by being one of the most powerful duos made available and an extremely, yet relatively affordable price.
