Review: 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Mitsubishis, but explaining why has always been a bit difficult. It's not as if their styling is particularly enticing or that the way they drive is at all thrilling (Lancer EVO excluded, of course). Perhaps it's the 'rooting for the underdog'...

Review: 2018 Lexus NX 300

Lexus could be credited for lending a hand in the whole SUV craze that the market seems to find itself in today. It was the original RX SUV that debuted in 1998 that made consumers realize that luxury wasn't limited to big body sedans. Today, every single premium or pure luxury...
