Review: 2016 FIAT 500x

Review: 2016 FIAT 500x
Italian things with an American influence are very popular in the U.S… Olive Garden. Robert De Niro. FIAT? I put the question mark there because the jury is still out on the popularity of FIAT (under the mothership of FIAT Chrysler America).

Review: 2016 Chevrolet Malibu 2LZ
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure initially if my tester this week would be appropriate for 95Octane, whose motto is Cars That Don’t Suck. In the past, the Chevrolet Malibu has been less than exciting. I won’t go so far as to say it sucked, but the Malibu has a history of mediocrity.

Review: 2016 Ford Escape Titanium
The compact crossover segment is one of the most compelling, and increasingly competitive ones in the auto industry. Every carmaker has an offering. And each has some sort of merit and value. As these crossovers battle one another, they need to find their place in the segment that makes them distinctive.

Review: 2016 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring
To discuss my tester for this week, I turned to Old Man Webster’s famous book and I looked up the word “evolution.” The first definition really helped me talk about my tester. Ev-uh-loo-shun: any process of formation or growth; development.

Review: 2016 Honda Pilot
What car do you drive yourself? That’s the question I’m usually asked by readers. Truth be told, I don’t actually own a vehicle, per se. My wife has a 2013 Honda Pilot that she loves. We use it to pull our camper, and believe it or not, it does a great job.

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX450h
Let’s be honest, most hybrids are not thought of as very exciting. In keeping with 95Octane’s motto of “Cars that Don’t Suck,” we decided to cover a hybrid that adds some excitement and sportiness to the genre.

Review: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium
When you think Toyota and hybrid, likely the Prius probably comes to mind first. However, at 95Octane we like our hybrids with a little more to them than the Prius. So, I am glad to get to review a hybrid that’s more my style and more well-suited for 95Octane.

Review: 2016 Audi S7

Review: 2016 Audi S7
Someone once said to me: “The Audi S7 is just an overpriced version of the A7.” Something more factually incorrect has never been said. While there are significant similarities between the less expensive A7 hatchback, a fine and exquisite car in its own right, the 2016 Audi S7 is most definitely better in all the ways that matter.

Review: 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet
Audi continues to evolve their small car offering. In the 2015 model year, the A3 sedan changed body style, moving away from a hatchback toward a sporty four-door. Likewise, Audi makes this vehicle even more exciting by adding a 2+2 cabriolet (aka convertible) to the lineup.

Hey kids, who wants to go off-roading today? Okay, that is likely not a conversation most dads will have with his family on a Sunday morning. But those who own a Toyota 4Runner COULD have that conversation.

Review: 2016 Honda HR-V
Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a beloved fairy tale. Perhaps it was a favorite of the engineers at Honda. With the 2016 Honda HR-V, they’ve re-created their own version of the Three Bears. Papa Bear being the Pilot, Mama Bear being the CR-V and the brand new HR-V being the Baby Bear.

Review: 2015 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge has lived up to its name since it was first introduced in 2007. You may not initially think of it as an “edgy” vehicle, but it was actually ahead of its time back in its early days.

Review: 2015 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport

Review: 2015 Lexus GS 350 F-Sport
I’ll start out by saying the Lexus GS 350 F-Sport is a paradigm in contradiction. It’s a car that is both conservative, but bold. Its looks are both brash but simple. The engine is both controlled and yet sporty.

Review: 2016 Acura MDX
Most carmakers are in a battle of keeping up with the Joneses and constantly wage a battle of one-upmanship. Such is the case for my tester this week – the 2016 Acura MDX. Although, truth be told, in the third-row luxury SUV segment, the MDX is the Joneses and everyone else seems to be trying to keep up with them.
