2018 MINI Countryman Cooper S E ALL4 Review: An AWD PHEV Go Kart

2018 MINI Countryman Cooper S E ALL4 Review: An AWD PHEV Go Kart
I’m conflicted this week. I really am. I often dislike compact crossovers. If find many of them lacking in distinction or personality. But I also generally like quirky and small vehicles that have pep and good handling.

2018 Lexus LS 500 F Sport Review: Big on Style, Power, and Luxury

2018 Lexus LS 500 F Sport Review: Big on Style, Power, and Luxury
In the past few years, Lexus has been going through quite a renaissance. They’ve shaken their stodgy, conservative reputation for one that is bolder and more aggressive. Just as Lexus received criticism in the past for being too bland or too vanilla, now they receive some criticism for being too stylized and too edgy.

2018 Mazda CX-5 Review: a Confident Compact Crossover

2018 Mazda CX-5 Review: a Confident Compact Crossover
It’s time to face the facts. Compact crossovers aren’t just a flash-in-the-pan trend, they’re a juggernaut within the auto industry. They’re not going anywhere any time soon. So even though I find many of them boring, or with looks like they were drawn by a seven-year-old, I have to come to grips with reality.

2018 Chevy Tahoe RST Review: A White Knight with Black Trim
Few things typify the American way more than big SUVs. Just like the big pickup trucks that they share platforms with, the full-size SUV is like a throwback to what the auto industry used to be before crossovers took over.

2018 Kia Rio Review: A Peppy Subcompact Packs Great Value
95Octane’s tagline is “Cars that don’t suck.” So, then how can I review a subcompact car with a price tag under $20k and a little four banger with a puny amount of horsepower? Simple, the 2018 Kia Rio belongs here at 95Octane because despite its entry-level nature, it doesn’t suck.

2018 Audi SQ5 Review: The “S” Is for Special
Earlier this year, I reviewed the 2018 Audi Q5. I wasn’t used to Audi SUVs as I generally get behind the wheel of their sedans (and thoroughly enjoy myself). But I did enjoy my time in the redesigned Q5 as well.

2018 Genesis G90 V8 AWD Review: What Is Luxury?
The band Haddaway had one of the most infamous one-hit wonder songs of all time called What is Love? Now that that ear worm is in your head (you’re welcome), it made me ask the question, with A Night at the Roxbury’s theme song as the backdrop, “What is luxury?”

2018 Nissan Armada Review: A Big Boy for the Boss
It’s no secret that demand for SUVs is higher than it’s ever been, and cars here in the US are passé. But this doesn’t mean that all SUVs are popular. These days, the smaller, sleeker, sometimes cutesy SUVs and crossovers are all the trend.

2018 Audi Q5 Review: Crossoverhaul
For those who read my reviews regularly, which is probably just my wife and my parents, you’ll know I have enjoyed almost every Audi sedan I’ve driven. I even had the fortune of spending a week in the Audi R8 V10 Plus, which was my all-time favorite car I’ve reviewed.

2018 Cadillac CT6 Review: Super Cruisin’ in the Lap of Luxury
We are two years away from 2020, and despite what we thought when we were kids, we’re nowhere close to flying cars, or even Back to the Future-like hoverboards. The Cubs did win the World Series, so the future doesn’t seem that far-fetched any longer.

Driving a lot of different vehicles, I’ve develop a mental checklist of things I notice and enjoy. And certainly, I’ve developed some personal biases toward certain types of vehicles. We all have our favorite kinds of cars.
