  • 2018 Infiniti Q50 First Drive

    For 2018 Infiniti face-lifted their best selling sedan with new numbers and interior tweaks. Because this is a mid-cycle refresh and not a redesign, everything we loved about the previous Q50 is still here but unfortunately much of what we complained about is here as well. The Q50 is one of the best performance buys

  • 2018 Genesis G80 3.3T Review

    The updated 2018 G80 is the latest shot across the bow of the established luxury brands. With more luxury for the dollar and an all-new twin-turbo engine, the G80 3.3T is aimed squarely at the Lexus GS and Audi A6.

The 5th generation Odyssey is the first car in America to get Honda’s all-new 10-speed

While it’s still not my “all-around” top pick in this competitive segment it is a close number two and certainly my choice if

  • 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Review

    After years of wishing Chevy has finally given Cruze fans what they were asking for: the 2017 Cruze hatchback. The all-new model is a little more compact that the Cruse sedan for easier city parking but swallows considerably more cargo. GM’s newest hatch has another trick up its sleeve: a soon to be available 1.6L
