    Automobile sizes are incredibly relative from country to country, or at least from continent to continent. When I was in Germany recently, around the holidays, I was reminded of just how compact some “family cars” are. What we consider small works for a family of four, or even five, overseas. The Mazda CX-30 was built […]

    Watching a wealthy actor attempt to be a race car driver is typically pretty boring stuff. There are exceptions, of course. Patrick Dempsey can wheel. Paul Newman was a hero in a car. Adam Carolla typically pushes his own fleet of vintage race cars pretty hard. Gene Hackman ran at the 24 Hours of Daytona, […]

    I like to occasionally take a break from new car reviews and focus on my own buying experiences. I feel like people (often) ask me what I drive as an automotive journalist because they assume I’m pretty informed about what’s good, and I purchase accordingly. And I suppose that’s true, though the recent craziness in […]

    It’s been roughly 24 hours since the world lost Ken Block in a snowmobile accident in Utah, and at this point there really isn’t anything else to say about him that hasn’t already been said. Since the news broke last night, there’s been an overwhelming outpouring of love and sympathy to one of the most […]

    Life is unpredictable, a wise man once said that it’s like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get, or when you’re going to get it. My last road-trip review of the 4Runner TRD Pro alluded to some significant life changes on the horizon for me. That trip was important for […]

Well, they’ve reached back out because they have some 2021 models all built up and ready to roll. These get a unique suspension, a sweet wheel and tire setup, and a Roush […]

    It’s rare that a new car excites me these days, but the GR Corolla has done that in a big way. This feels like a rally-ready homologation special, and I love it. It helps that I’m driving the Morizo Edition too, which gets more aggressive gearing, drops some weight, and feels ready for anything.
