2016 Honda HR-V AWD EX-L with Navigation Review

2016 Honda HR-V AWD EX-L with Navigation Review

When we drove the new 2016 Honda Fit earlier this year, we had to get an attitude adjustment because we were just coming off a test drive in the BMW M4 performance coupe. This week, a similar thing happened as we just finished up in the Lexus RC 350 performance coupe. We were ready for […]

2015 Toyota 4Runner 4X4 TRD PRO V6 Review

2015 Toyota 4Runner 4X4 TRD PRO V6 Review

It’s never a good thing when you just finish driving a hot hatch like the Volkswagen Golf R and then get into a bigger vehicle like the 2015 Toyota 4Runner. When we got behind the wheel of the 4Runner sport utility vehicle, we had to adjust our mindset to accommodate the larger vehicle’s driving dynamics. […]

2015 Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Coupe Review

2015 Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Coupe Review

If the new Lexus RC F Coupe was the hot Chipotle BBQ flavor, the 2015 Lexus RC 350 Coupe is the medium flavor but still very tasty. We ate until our hearts were content. We’ve driven both now but we would pick the milder version over the hotter RC F as the best for performance […]

2015 Lexus RC F Coupe Review

2015 Lexus RC F Coupe Review

If the new Lexus RC Coupe were a flavor, it would come in two hot choices: Medium BBQ and hot Chipotle BBQ. Both are tasty, but the hotter 2015 Lexus RC F Coupe is the one we test drove this weekend and the one we were very excited for. Lexus is changing their image and […]

2015 Volkswagen Golf R DSG Review

2015 Volkswagen Golf R DSG Review

If the Golf R were a celebrity in a movie it would be Tom Cruise in the new Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation thriller. His character, Ethan Hunt, makes quick work of the competition and doesn’t take any prisoners. Cruise drives a BMW M3 in the movie, but the agile and fast Volkswagen Golf R would […]

2015 VW Touareg TDI Sport Review

2015 VW Touareg TDI Sport Review

When the 2015 Volkswagen Touareg arrived for our test, we didn’t have time to check out any details on the five seat SUV. When we finally saw it was the TDI Sport model, we were surprised! We drove 26 miles without realizing the 3.0-liter V6 turbocharged engine under the hood was a diesel. It’s so […]

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Review

2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE Review

Automakers do a lot of testing before a vehicle hits dealer showrooms and because we live in Colorado, we get to see many different vehicles being tested at the higher altitudes on I-70. This week we took the 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid SE and went on a little chase of a new Mercedes-Benz AMG GT […]

2016 Acura RDX AWD Review

2016 Acura RDX AWD Review

When guys decide to have a day out, it usually involves one of three things, guns, cars or sports. This week we decided on guns and went to an outdoor shooting range for some clay pigeon shooting. What does this have to do with the 2016 Acura RDX? We loaded four guys and their guns […]

2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited Review

2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited Review

“That was sure painless,” said one of our passengers after a trip down the freeway this weeked in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. This passenger does not like to drive on the highway and said she definitely has anxiety whenever she does. It’s a true testament to the 2015 Toyota Avalon’s ability to deliver a comfortable […]

2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD Review

2015 Toyota RAV4 Limited AWD Review

We took the 2015 Toyota RAV4 on a garage sale, yard sale, rummage sale or whatever you call it trip around Denver this week. I would rather have gone to a local car show, but you know what they say: “if momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” The RAV4 is a handy hauler that is […]

2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited Review

2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited Review

The South Koreans have always had a war going on with the Japanese and they are still in the battle with their automotive brands of Hyundai and Kia. The new 2016 Hyundai Sonata hybrid is going to give Toyota a good fight for automotive supremacy in the sedan hybrid segment. According to Hyundai Motors, the […]

2015 Toyota Venza Limited V6 AWD Review

2015 Toyota Venza Limited V6 AWD Review

The Toyota Venza is not an SUV, it’s not a crossover, and it’s not a sedan.  So, what is this multi-purpose vehicle from Toyota anyway? Venza is built on the platform of the previous-generation (2007-2011) Camry, and is assembled in the same plant in Georgetown, Kentucky. It rides and drives like a car and it’s […]
