2017 Hyundai Ioniq

High technology is rapidly shaping the automobile industry's present and future. Where there were powerful V8 engines, some have been replaced with turbocharged six- and even four-cylinder powerplants. The result has been V8 horsepower numbers with smaller, fuel-saving engines. One automaker's bet that hydrogen will power future vehicles is hedged by another manufacturer's commitment to electric ... Read More

2017 Mini Cooper S Convertible

It's getting to be the time of year when we can expect sunshine to reign down on us more often than not, or at least most are hoping to feel warmer as we near the mid-point of spring. Such thoughts cause some of us to dream of open-top motoring in a new convertible, and few carmakers offer as much sun-worshipping fun for as little cost as Mini. Good news for entry-level cabrio fans came last ... Read More

2017 Mazda CX-9 Signature

Why oh why isn't Mazda number one in the market? Their entire lineup of cars and SUVs look great, boast better than average interiors filled with most of the latest features, perform well, are reliable and wonderfully efficient, but their sales never measure up. If Chrysler and Mitsubishi didn't exist right now (although to most they don't as both don't offer model lineups that are anywhere ... Read More

2017 Infiniti QX60 AWD

Infiniti gave its most popular QX60 a comprehensive refresh last year, so it's only reasonable to think this 2017 model would carry over completely unchanged. Not so fast. Rather than sit back and relax, Nissan's luxury brand has updated this seven-passenger mid-size luxury SUV's powertrain while also adding new features inside and out. The large three-row crossover utility has boasted a ... Read More

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE Td6

There is premium and then there's premium, if you know what I mean. Yes, even within the premium auto sector there are different levels of respectability, the lowest end of the mid-size luxury SUV segment, for instance, which ranges from about $38k to $45k, filled up (in order of price) with models like the Lincoln MKX, Buick Enclave, Cadillac XT5, Lexus RX, Infiniti QX60, and Acura MDX, while ...

2017 Volvo V60 T5 AWD Platinum

There are wagon fans and then there are those who just don't quite grasp what all the excitement is about. The latter notion is understandable, especially among those my age and considerably older who grew up with station wagons as their go-to family haulers and therefore disdain them as much as those raised in minivans dislike their parents' modus operandi, but despite falling into the former ...

2017 Jaguar XE 20d Prestige AWD

Jaguar has been doing exceptionally well as of late. Last year's U.S. sales more than doubled with 31,243 deliveries compared to 14,466 in 2015, the latter number already a far cry more to celebrate about than the scarily low 12,011 sold in 2012 (or even worse 11,955 in 2009). The reason for renewed interest came from growth in its redesigned XF mid-size sedan and full-size XJ, but most ... Read More

2017 Toyota Corolla iM

If asked to select new models for last year's car of the year awards, I would've put Scion's iM at the top of my list. I've always been more impressed by inexpensive practical cars done well than luxury sport models charging pricey premiums, and the iM did everything asked of it very well indeed. For 2017 it's mostly carryover except for two important features, the badge on the grille and a host ... Read More

2017 Fiat 124 Spider Lusso

My singing teacher had one of these back in 1980. She was a cool old lady living in one of the nicer areas in the city, and driving what most of us at the time considered the poor man's, or in this case woman's, Mercedes SL. She was hardly poor, but merely understood that you can have just as much fun in a less expensive sports car while enjoying a more carefree type of prestige. I won't go ... Read More

2017 Infiniti QX70 AWD Limited


Have you ever wondered why something can be the best thing since sliced bread one day and all of a sudden yesterday's has-been? The car industry is sometimes hard on modern-day classics, or rather new vehicles that haven't been updated in a while. Infiniti's QX70 falls into this category, but really it deserves much more attention than it gets. When its predecessor and this second-generation ... Read More
