  • 2018 Lexus LS 500 & LS 500h first drive review

    It’s been a while since Lexus completely redesigned the sedan that kicked off the brand in America but they have pulled out all the stops for 2018.

With seating for 8 in a pinch, excellent reliability and a heap of changes for 2017 the Highlander is a better value than ever before. In this refresh Toyota decided to drop a

    Whether you call the C-HR a crossover or a hatchback, whether you want to call it a Toyota or reminisce about Scion, the C-HR is unquestionably one of the best values under 172 inches long. The “un-crossover” badge is the result of the American market C-HR not being available with AWD, although for some reason
