    1404836100

    First Drive: 2015 Lexus NX 200t
    1404748800

    If you were an officious person with a particularly pragmatic point of view, you might be quick to note that 10 per cent of the 2015 Lexus NX is shared with the Toyota RAV4...

    On a recent jaunt to Australia, we got behind the wheel of a Holden Commodore SS-V Redline.

    First Drive: Harley-Davidson LiveWire [w/video]
    1403798280

    Days before Harley-Davidson shocked the world with news that after 111 years of building increasingly larger, gas-powered V-twins, it was going all Tesla with its plug-in electric LiveWire, I had the chance to ride it.

    Review: 2014 Hyundai Elantra
    1403539200

    The reality of growing up and living in Detroit is an interesting one. You're essentially born with minute traces of gasoline in your veins and everyone you know is associated with the auto industry in some way. That's not an exaggeration.

    A Supercharged Power Wagon Worthy Of The Nürburgring We'd consider giving up vital organs for the opportunity to drive any number of vehicles on the Nürburgring: supercars, racecars, track cars, even hot hatches... but a station wagon? That might not seem like a top choice at first ...
