2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid isn’t (only) your grandmamma’s car: video review

The Toyota Camry has the reputation of being a boring car for old people. That’s disrespectful for both the car and older drivers. I think if you spent time with the 2018 Camry Hybrid, you’d agree this is no longer…

That’s so gay: 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI is compact fun, sun, and vroom

I love driving the 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI! This a spirited car that goes all over the country with a muscular 2.0-liter engine cranking out 220 horses. Few small cars can pull that off, much less do it well.  The…

2018 Kia Stinger GT is a Porsche Panamera for the working class (too bad it’s not LGBT-friendly)

Editor’s note: Kia is the only major automaker in America that doesn’t offer benefits or protections for its LGBT employees. We encourage you to consider that when making your next car purchase. Four-door coupes are all the rage among Europe’s…

2018 Audi Q5 is one smooth operator…and full of gusto

It’s often not the wrapper, but what’s inside that counts. That’s not to say Audi doesn’t make some pretty suave wrappers, because it does. Following in the Bauhaus tradition, Audis are understated and elegant. But, it’s the brand’s exquisite interiors…

2018 Range Rover Velar is a most capable diesel-powered art gallery [video review]

When the original Range Rover launched in 1970, I doubt anybody thought of it as museum-quality design. I mean, it was a utilitarian vehicle for surveying one’s estate. But, when the body is stretched, slammed, and streamlined, it becomes art….
