2017 Hyundai Ioniq – Test Drive, Review, Ratings, Specs

??????????????A Hybrid Done Right

Go green, or go home, the Hyundai Ioniq adds yet; another alternative fuel economic hybrid/electric solution to the automotive market for consumers to choose from. What’s impressive about the Ioniq is its overall simple and rock solid driving experience on its first engineering attempt. That also means the Ioniq was designed from a clean slate – offering hope for new technology and a good design from previous lessons learned. But better yet, it’s all within an affordable price tag without compromising quality.

2017 Fiat 500x – Test Drive, Review, Ratings, Specs

FT017_086FHqhk1vvv625bf1sf61kc48t986h__midIt’s A Cross-over with Cosmetic Makeup

The Fiat 500x extends its genetics of good retro Italian styling and bubbly charms into the cross-over category. Promising more room, and all weather capability, the 500x proves that cross-overs don’t have to be boring. Standard configuration gets you the same turbo charged 1.4 liter inline V4 producing a mere 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. And that is power is governed by a 6 speed manual transmission. If horsepower is a concern, the Fiat 500x offers an upgraded 2.4L V4 with the optional ZF nine-speed automatic transmission as a configurable option. The more juicy engine configuration produces 180 horsepower and 175 lb.ft of torque compromised by shelling out an extra 1800$ for the upgrade.

2017 Fiat 124 Spider – Test Drive, Review, Ratings, Specs

SAMSUNG CSCA Well-Dressed Italian Roadster

There’s no longer a need to be in the super-rich category to enroll into the Italian roadster club. Despite the Asian fusion element of intermixing Mazda’s chassis and powertrain ingenuity and manufacturing it on Japanese soil alongside with the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Spider 124 still holds a few core design elements on its own that makes the Fiat 124 Spider a truly unique roadster experience.

2017 Honda CR-V – Test Drive, Review, Ratings, Specs

2017_Honda_CR_V_032Mainstream Just Got Upscaled

Four million units sold worldwide is a pretty strong statement about the Honda CR-V. And after two decades since its virgin voyage off the manufacturing line, the all new fifth generation Honda CR-V shows even more promise with lavish styling, quality interior, more room, and the usual bulk of modern tech features.

2017 Honda HR-V – Test Drive, Review Ratings, Specs

SAMSUNG CSCThe Go Around, Get Around Vehicle

When it comes to minimalism, the Honda HR-V does it best. It’s as if the whole idea was slapped together with parts from the Honda recycling bin. And it’s not necessarily a bad thing either. The basic sub-compact cross-over is small and quick enough for city zipping during the work week with plenty of room to spare for the weekend adventures. All that within a very affordable price tag. The whole small scale subcompact cross-over is not a new idea however, and there is certainly a growing demand for it. Take for example, the well priced Mazda CX3, and the Toyota RAV4. Both are of similar traits that aim to fill the demand for those that want basic functionality and cargo convenience.

2017_Honda_Ridgeline___001An Ironically Civilized Pickup

Despite tipping the weightscale into the 4500lbs weight class while spanning its chassis dimensions into the midsize pickup category, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline somehow retains a charasmatic driving experience that cherishes the Honda’s smooth powertrain.  Though not as well conceived as a rugged pickup in both the import and domsetic market, the Ridgeli still holds its ground strong.

The Honda Pilot appeals to families that need high occupancy on a tight budget. The idea is certainly not new though. Its first iteration dates as far back as 2002 and has since then; been well appraised for its family practicality, reliability and enticing price point. Though less expensive compared to the more traditional mini-van approach, the Pilot’s still got all the features and amenities to satisfy big family needs.

2017 Nissan Sentra – Test Drive, Review, Ratings, Specs

SAMSUNG CSCThe Sentra Keeps It Simple

The typical lifestyle of a modern city civilian is Grab’n Go, and the small car perfectly fits. That’s not to say there’s no room for the more traditional approach to the compact sedan transportation. After all, it’s America we’re talking about, and it ain’t just food portions that’s supersized. With that said, the Nissan Sentra still leaves plenty of room for those that refuse to downsize.

2017 Ford Focus ST – Test Drive, Review, Rating, Specs

SAMSUNG CSCRuling the Road with the Focus ST

It really is the wet dream of any forward-wheel-drive enthusiast. The Ford Focus ST promises launch-grade acceleration and tight grip handling in a hot hatch package. All that performance excitement is contributed by an exceptional torque vectoring system and an ultra-fiesty turbocharged engine. You’re not going to enjoy a smooth sailing road experience because of its high purity of performance tuning, and the driver’s seat is a bit of a tight squeeze. But if you can tolerate it, the Ford Focus ST delivers an ultra-exhilarating driving experience
