Road Test: 2015 Mustang EcoBoost

Road Test: 2015 Mustang EcoBoost
The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost has a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged motor making 310 horsepower, and 320 lb-ft. of torque. That power is sent to the back axle via a 6 speed manual transmission where it is presented to a limited slip differential with a very spritely 3.55 final drive ratio.

Review: 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring

Review: 2016 Mazda6 Grand Touring
As families have migrated more and more to SUVs and crossovers in recent years, the mid-size car market has been shrinking. But that has forced automakers to step up their mid-size game in recent years, and there are currently several excellent entries in this once boring category.

First Drive Review: 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 SE

First Drive Review: 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 SE
Recently, I had the chance to see how a RAV4 was capable enough to run with the big boys in rally racing. Now, I’ve spent some time behind the wheel of two new models of the RAV4 that Toyota is bringing to market for 2016.

Review: 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo

Review: 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo
It’s kind of tough to get people convinced that Kia is making a genuinely good car. However, the 2016 redesign takes the Optima to a level people would not have thought of even just a few years ago.

First Drive Review: 2016 Lexus RX450h

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.

Daily Driving the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4×4

Daily Driving the 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport 4×4
A couple of months back, I had a chance to rough up the new Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport and Off-Road editions in a challenging course of dirt, gravel and mud. Now, I’ve spent a few days driving the TRD Sport 4×4 version in a more typical everyday environment in and around my hometown of Chicago.

Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Camaro SS

Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Camaro SS
Chevrolet recently kicked off an epic 48-state tour of the U.S. with a convoy of its new 2016 Camaros leading the way. I was fortunate to be chosen for the trip, and got to drive the leg that kicked off in Salt Lake City, Utah, and ended in Bozeman, Montana.

Review: 2016 Audi TT

Review: 2016 Audi TT
The first generation Audi TT was about as much of statement car as you could make in the modern age. Perhaps even more than an exotic supercar like a new Ferrari or Lamborghini flagship because power and beauty is what’s expected from them.

Review: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium

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.

After The Hype: The 2016 MX-5

After The Hype: The 2016 MX-5
Everyone loves to mention it. ‘Body roll.’ Apparently the car is so good, that it is judged mainly for the way it pitches into a corner. You know… suspension doesn’t have to be rock hard in order for a car to negotiate a curve.

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.

2015 Fiat 500 Abarth: Small But Leaves a Big Impression

2015 Fiat 500 Abarth: Small But Leaves a Big Impression
When you enjoy a car this much, relating that joy into words becomes increasingly difficult. How do I explain that a car – one which has a modest 160 horsepower – left a perpetual smile on my face?

Adventures in the Toyota RAV4

Adventures in the Toyota RAV4
Say the name “RAV4,” and most people think of a compact grocery getter for the soccer mom set. But the last several days have shown me that the Toyota RAV4 is much more. I had the opportunity to take the 2015 RAV4 on a Pacific Northwest adventure, going off-road, and even witnessing a RAV4 run a rally race.

First Drive Review: 2016 Kia Optima SXL 2.0T

First Drive Review: 2016 Kia Optima SXL 2.0T
One could argue that the third-generation Kia Optima is the car that truly reinvigorated the Kia brand back in 2010. Under the watchful eye of design boss Peter Schreyer, the completely redesigned Optima kicked off the brand’s style renaissance, with great looks, and a decidedly more sporty and modern aesthetic than past Kia products.

Track Day: 2016 Buick Regal GS
When you think of the Buick brand, a day at the track isn’t exactly the first thing that pops to mind. But I’m here to tell you that Buick is waist-deep in the midst of a renaissance, offering cars that aren’t just more stylish than ever before, but are actually enjoyable to drive.
