2019 BMW X5 | Is It Still The Mid-Sized Luxury King?

For 2019 the X5 sees some big changes. It’s no longer BMW’s SUV flagship now that the X7 has landed and by all appearances the optional 3rd row is soon to be killed off. Although there’s sure to be a fire-breathing X5M soon, the rest of the X5 lineup seems to have doubled down on […]

2019 Kia Niro EV | The Mainstream EV To Watch

Kia and Hyundai haven’t focused too much on green-cred in the past but that’s all changing with an onslaught of new EVs, hybrids and plug-ins. Between 2016 and 2020 they have promised the launch of a combined 28 green vehicles including several long range EVs. The 2019 Kia Niro EV (known as the eNiro in […]

Tesla v Nissan v Kia | The Newest "Budget" EVs Compared!

For this video I snagged the three latest long-range EVs under $40,000: the new Leaf Plus, the Niro EV and of course the long awaited Model 3 Standard Range [plus]. Tesla’s brand value tops the scales, the Leaf has an enormous cargo area and Kia fights back with a long standard warranty. Which will be […]

2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure | A Quick Look Off-Road

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 […]

2019 Nissan Armada | Still A Good Value

The Nissan Armada isn’t the newest SUV in America. Let’s be honest, the basics are getting a bit old. But Nissan fights back with stout towing numbers, a high level of standard equipment, a strong V8 engine and a low price tag. If you’re shopping for a big SUV to haul your family and tow […]

2019 BMW X7 First Drive | BMW’s American Flagship?

The new X7 can best be thought of as a stretched X5 and that’s just fine by me. The latest X5 really impressed us with it’s more luxurious cabin and the refinement of its ride. The biggest change for the X5 of course in 2019 was the loss of the third row option. That makes […]

2019 Honda HR-V | Affordable Practicality

Honda’s HR-V may not be the fastest, fanciest, or most luxurious option in the subcompact crossover segment, but it is an excellent value and has one of the largest and most practical interior in the segment. If you’re shopping for a small, affordable crossover, this Honda should be on your list .

2019 Cadillac Escalade Review

Cadillac’s Escalade may not be the freshest face in the large luxury segment, and indeed there may be a new model on the horizon for 2020, but that doesn’t make the biggest Caddy in America feel old. Part of this is that the competition from Infiniti and Lexus has been essentially “phoned in” and part […]

2019 Hyundai Nexo Review | The Ultimate Unicorn

Hyundai’s Nexo isn’t the first hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in America but it is the first H2 car that actually makes sense. It’s attractive (IMHO), does up to 380 miles on a tank and has about the same room inside as the average mid-sized gasoline crossover. Of course the “chicken and egg” problem is ever […]

2019 / 2020 Toyota Sienna | Reliable, But Is It Relevant?

The Toyota Sienna soldiers on with minimal changes for 2019 and 2020 while we wait for a complete redesign expected for the 2021 model year. While we wait for the next gen model, the Sienna is up against tough competition from the inexpensive Grand Caravan (which may be ancient, but it’s also crazy cheap), the […]
