THIS IS HOW WE ADULT
2017.5 Mazda6 Grand Touring

AUTO REVIEW – At the LA Auto Show, Mazda unveiled the 2018 model year facelift that incorporates a larger grille a la the CX-5 and CX-9, LED daytime running lights, and new taillights.  I’ll double-down and say that to me with the latest refresh the Mazda6 still looks better than many newer near-luxury or luxury mid-size sedans that it’s not in direct competition with. Our specific loaner was a 2017.5 model year – itself no slouch in the looks department.

THE SOUND OF 34 VOICES SPEAKING
The curious listener’s guide to the Bose Panaray System in the Cadillac CT6

FUTURE PERFECT
2018 Lexus LC500h

AUTO REVIEW – In a time when fully-autonomous and fully-electric vehicles are the talk of the industry, the LC500h gives avowed holdouts who love to drive a guilt-free reason to keep your hands on the steering wheel and your foot on the gas.

ABC – A Bigger Camry
2018 Avalon Hybrid XLE Premium

AUTO REVIEW – I finally had the chance to evaluate the Avalon. Is it more than just a big Camry, does it have a value proposition in addition to size? Six years into the latest generation and the Avalon is about ready for a major update, which makes sense since the new Camry just bowed. That being said the minor updates for MY2016 — mostly revision of the front grille — help the Avalon still look relevant amongst the sedan market.

BOLDER
2018 Camry XSE Spices up the Sedan Market

AUTO REVIEW- For model year 2018, Toyota’s engineers and designers must have received a new memo with subject line: “Make it even BOLDER. Sincerely, the Boss.” One look at the latest Camry and it is abundantly clear the message was received.
