Carspotting Japan: AIMGAIN Custom Suzuki Jimny Mt.8

Carspotting Japan: Honda S660 Mugen Edition

Carspotting Japan: Honda S660 Mugen Edition
Hot on the heels of my tiny Italian carspotting in Japan a couple of weeks back, comes a far more modern, mid-engine approach to automotive engineering. Commonly referred to as “the new NSX’s baby brother,” the Honda S660 is a Japan-exclusive two-seat roadster that fits neatly within the Japanese kei car category, so it has to have less than a 1.0-liter engine.

Carspotting Japan: Classic Fiat Nuova 500

Carspotting Japan: Classic Fiat Nuova 500
Fiat is discontinuing sales of the smaller 500 in the United States. So instead of throwing a fit over the demise of the little Fiat 500 and its feisty Abarth doppelgänger, let’s take a look at the vehicle that first sported the triple digit badge: The aptly named, “Fiat Nuova 500.” It’s not often that you come across classic Italian cars in rural Japan.

7 Excellent Excuses for Buying a Lexus LC 500 (As If You Needed Any)

7 Excellent Excuses for Buying a Lexus LC 500 (As If You Needed Any)
When first presented with the option of driving the Lexus LC 500 for a week, I damn near broke out in song. In recent years, Japanese luxury automaker Lexus has gone to great lengths in order to distance itself from the longstanding impression that it only makes boring automobiles.

2018 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack 2 Review: Stampeding Stallion
Could there be a better way to close out 2018 than with a week-long review of Ford’s brilliantly revised Pony Car? Actually there is, and it’s called the Mustang GT Performance Package 2. When I first drove the new GT back in 2017, I was deeply impressed by the heavily revised Mustang.

2018 Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium Review: A 4×4 Classic
With winter pretty much upon us, thoughts of warmer days take hold, and with them memories of various off-road adventures we have undertaken. Take the Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road Premium for instance, which serves as a time capsule both in the bright green foliage around it, and within the vehicle itself.

2018 Audi TT RS Coupe Review: A Turbocharged Fist-Full of Exotic Fury

2018 Audi TT RS Coupe Review: A Turbocharged Fist-Full of Exotic Fury
If the Audi TT were an exotic animal, it would probably be a flying squirrel. Small in stature, yet ferociously unafraid of swift flight, it rambunctiously leaps from place to place; an adorable little acrobat with loads of personality and a “never-say-die” look in its eye.

2019 Ford Edge ST First Drive Review: Performance Meets Family Focus

2019 Ford Edge ST First Drive Review: Performance Meets Family Focus
Ask yourself this simple question: Is this the golden age of performance automobiles? We tend to think so. Fuel prices remain relatively reasonable, engineering advancements have provided us with more forced induction solutions than we can shake a piston at, torque-vectoring is not just brake-driven but power oriented as well, and automakers are taking unassuming family cars and are making performance models out of them.

Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel Review: Power to the People

Ford F-150 Power Stroke Diesel Review: Power to the People
“It’s about damn time,” should have been Ford’s product punchline for the F-150 Power Stroke pickup, because every time I spoke with someone about this diesel V6 option, they said the exact same thing. No comments on the color.

2018 Audi A5 Sportback 2.0T Review: Luxury Sedan Meets Hatchback

2018 Audi A5 Sportback 2.0T Review: Luxury Sedan Meets Hatchback
Sliding out of the Audi A4 S Line from the week prior and into the A5 Sportback brought with it a sense of acceptance in the knowing that change can be a good thing. Here’s a car that costs just a fuzz more than the vehicle I had just driven, yet opts for a sloping rear roofline that discreetly hides a hatch instead of closed trunk.

2018 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Review: German Luxury Sedan Frontrunner

2018 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Review: German Luxury Sedan Frontrunner
When I first drove the current generation of the Audi A4 2.0T Quattro a couple years back, I was left impressed by its precise driving characteristics and polished interior and tech. Almost perfectly packaged and visually alluring in a variety of subtle ways, this unassuming junior executive commuter car is a prime example of what understated entry-level German luxury looks like.

2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport Review: Untapped Euro R Potential

2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport Review: Untapped Euro R Potential
For years, Honda has teased us with glimpses of the Civic Type R ripping around on foreign soil; a 4-piston piece of Japanese engineered agility and hi-revving revelry with zero interest in sitting on American sales floors.

Honda Civic Type R Review: One Fast, Fun, and Functional Hatchback

Honda Civic Type R Review: One Fast, Fun, and Functional Hatchback
What is there to say about the Honda Civic Type R that hasn’t already been said? It’s lightning quick, only comes with a manual and a clutch pedal, can stow all sorts of stuff inside its oh-so practical Honda hatch, and looks like a high school kid’s rendition of what a tuned Japanese rocket ship should look like in real life.

Acura is Back on Track: Race Cars and Hill Climbs and Turbos, Oh My!
I’ll be the first to admit it: I’m an Acura man. My stable currently consists of a first generation TSX Tech Package, which has made for an outstanding daily beater these past five years, and a customized 2007 RDX with close to 300-horsepower and a bevy of Stage 1 bolt-ons.
