Review: 2017 Audi TTS Technik

By Kevin Harrison The Audi R8 wasn't around when I was a kid. Instead, my bedroom wall donned pictures and posters of other European stalwarts such as the Porsche 911 and the Lamborghini Diablo. Today, the R8 has gained a credible reputation to go along with its supercar styling. I can only...

Quick Drive: 2017 Mazda CX-5 GT

By Kevin Harrison Last week I had the opportunity to try the latest compact crossover from Mazda. Unfortunately for me, that opportunity only lasted a few days before it had to move on to the next auto writer. A full week is generally the norm. Thankfully for Mazda, a few days is...

Review: 2017 Ford Flex Limited Ecoboost

Review: 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport

By Kevin Harrison I remember the first time I saw the word 'Sport' on a minivan. It was a Ford Windstar that was in bright red, with sporty looking alloy wheels and a spoiler tacked onto the back. That was officially the day the word lost any meaning that equated it...

Test Drive: 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid

By Kevin Harrison Here's a fact that may shock some: I like the Prius. It's no drag racer, it can't overtake a BMW M3 coming out of a corner, it doesn't have a symphony coming out of its exhaust pipe and it doesn't conjure up any sort of emotional attachment to it....
