Mammoth: 2014 Lexus LX570

The Lexus LX570 is like your grandmother’s parlor: big, leather-clad, and a bit dated. This luxury behemoth packs eight seats and eight cylinders on top of some serious 4×4 capabilities. Debuted in 2007 and refreshed in 2012, this third-generation LX570 is one of Lexus’ two remaining body-on-frame SUVs. […]

The Right Stuff: 2015 Audi A3

There comes a time in every person’s life when they realize they can’t do the same things they once could. It’s a little harder to stay up late, those jeans you’ve had for years are a bit tight, and you can’t quite run as fast or as far […]

Rude: 2014 Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio

The Fiat 500 is a hot hatch in caricature: small, nimble, and visceral. But like any good caricature, the most prominent features are accentuated to the extreme. Among its counterparts, it’s rather small, darty, and very vocal. I mean loud. Disturb the neighbors loud. It’s all part of […]

You don’t notice the extra 11 horsepower. In the grand scheme of things, they’re fairly inconsequential. But you do notice every single one of the extra 111 lb-ft torque. To sum up the changes between this new car and the high-revving V8 of its predecessor in one word: […]

Chrysler “What’s New” 2015

A low fog hung in the sky, preventing the early-morning sun from warming the asphalt. For a moment, there was silence. Four gleaming vehicles sat before me, and I had first pick. This was how I began my day at Chrysler’s “What’s New 2015” event at their Chelsea […]

Utility: 2014 Subaru Forester XT

In the SUV world, bigger is better. The Subaru Forester didn’t start out very big, but it didn’t start out as an SUV either. When the first generation Forester landed in 1997, it was more of a station wagon than an SUV. But wagons fell out of favor […]
