    I love a good sports sedan. It’s one of my favorite vehicle variants behind the wagon. Honda has been making good sporty sedans for decades, and their latest Integra Type S is one of my favorites. I’ve also spent some time behind the wheel of a 2021 TLX SH-AWD A-SPEC, which kicked off the 2nd…

    Sometimes, in this business, you see a model name come across your desk and think, “Meh, I already had that.” In this case I just reviewed the 2024 Lexus TX 350 a few months ago. However, this TX 500h F Sport Performance Luxury is a different thing altogether. Well, I mean, it’s the same, but…

    The Overland market is huge and growing at the moment. There doesn’t seem to be a consensus on a dollar figure, but it’s estimated that around 30-40 million people are into the trend worldwide. Kamil and I spent the weekend with some other journalist types at Overland East a few years ago, and it was…

    It’s been over a decade since Dodge has had a compact SUV in its lineup. The Dodge Nitro left showrooms in 2012, leaving a hole in the smol-SUV segment. Dodge is part of Stellantis, which means they have access to the FCA Small Wide LWB 4×4 platform. It has been the basis for the Jeep…

    Hey Hoons, Will here. For those who follow some of my car-buying ramblings on here or my Twitter posts (X is a stupid name, and I won’t use it), you’ll know I have a bit of a car problem. The problem is generally that I buy and sell too many cars. Not in the “flip…

    I’ll admit, the first time I saw a new Toyota Crown I was not impressed. I think it was at the D.C. Auto Show, and while I was quite taken with the in-your-face styling, I was confused by, well that very same styling. However, I am a professional and when Toyota asked me if I…

    You have to hand it to Hyundai, their designers (and whoever approves their work) are some of the least risk-adverse in the industry. I’d love to have sat in on the first pitch for the new IONIQ 6, I imagine it was something like “We’re going for Citroën DS meets Porsche 911” and the bosses…

    I recently reviewed the incredible 2023 Audi RS 6 and concluded that it would be near the top of my “forever car” list. You know, that old daydream trope where someone offers you a free car, but you have keep it forever as your main car? So, when Audi asked if I wanted to have…

    I’ll start this review with some trivia, did you know that the Hyundai Kona is called the Hyundai Kauai in Portugal? Isn’t that interesting, makes you wonder what Kona means in Portuguese? Oh, I’ve just googled it and now know that it means…lady parts! Wow, this is off to a strange start. With all that…

    First of all, Happy Holidays Hoons! I hope the season has been good to you so far. I feel like Santa Claus would look good in Soul Red Crystal Metallic, so it was with that in mind that I got started with this latest review. I last reviewed the Mazda CX-50 in June of 2022…
