Car companies all want to go after millennials, especially companies that are not doing so well.

2020 Lexus GX 460 First Drive Review: Elegantly Rustic

Upscale and in the upper part of the price spectrum, the 2020 Lexus GX sits above the RX and below the gigantic flagship LX. However, it includes all kinds of technologies that could make it a flagship. For 2020, Lexus gave it a revised styling package and a few interior tweaks.

2020 Hyundai Sonata First Drive Review: Substantially Modernized

The Hyundai Sonata is one of few counter-SUV-current agents; an intermediate sedan meant to take a bite out of the 90 000 car sales of this type that are coming out of dealerships yearly in Canada, alongside the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima, to mention a few.

This mistake, mind you, paid off something ridiculous and has paved the way for this new mini-Gelandewagen, the 8th SUV in Mercedes-Benz. The “error” was replacing the Mercedes-Benz GLK, a muscular and angular compact SUV, with the softer egg-ish-like styling of the...

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant First Drive Review: The Be-All, End-All In The Automotive World

video
Malibu, CA. I review many new cars and SUVs every year and there is a constant throughout. This constant can ruin a Porsche Cayenne and make a Nissan Altima shine. The constant is expectations.
