Rogue or RAV? It’s hard to go wrong with any compact CUV in America today but how do the two most popular models in America compare? Which one is right …
The 2020 Supra isn’t just a blast from the past, it’s an honest-to-goodness Toyota sports car aimed directly at the Porsche Cayman. All the essentials are there for the Supra to be a hit. Inline 6 engine? Check. Rear wheel drive? Check. Small roadster proportions? You betcha. A sprinkle of BMW DNA? Why not? That’s […]

The new RAV4 Hybrid isn’t just the most efficient RAV4 for 2019, or indeed the most efficient compact CUV in America, it’s also (oddly enough) the fastest RAV4 as well. The new hybrid isn’t a direct replacement for the often wished for V6, but it is now one of the better performing small CUVs while […]
