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....

Test Drive: 2017 Acura MDX Elite

Test Drive: 2017 Jaguar XF 20D R-Sport

By Robert Nichols Last year I had the chance to drive both the 2016 Jaguar XJL and the XF-S. Both confirmed my long held belief that Jags are amazing in every conceivable way. So, you can imagine that when I was handed the keys to a gorgeous 2017 XF I could...

Test Drive: 2017 Honda Ridgeline Sport

By Kevin Harrison Alright truck fans, stop it right now. I can already hear your groans. I can already hear the jokes that you thought of a long time ago that you’re just itching to break out in any comment section about the Honda Ridgeline. I get it. To you, it’s not a...
