2018 Buick Enclave Avenir

Like most of my vehicle reviews lately, my stint with the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir begins at LAX. With a 10-hour flight behind me, and an almost two-hour trek through LA traffic in front of me, I made my way through customs and immigration, picked up my suitcase and made my way out to the shuttle area. This is the only time I have flown from Scandinavia to Los Angeles and traded a warm, sunny Stockholm for a (relatively) cold and wet LA. Sweden was experiencing an unusually warm May, and Southern California was in the midst of a weirdly cool and wet mid-May.

Dog Eat Dog, Rover vs. Rover

The time has come to ask the big question, is new-new better, or does new-old school rule the day? In this case, is it the Land Rover Velar that gets the public salivating? Or, would the E.C.D. RRC cause buyers to yank out their wallets? One thing’s for sure, it’s a dog eat dog world and let the best SUV survive!

If Looks Could Sting: 2018 Kia Stinger GT1

Apparently, not all thrill rides are attached to steel tracks in amusement parks. My need for speed is satisfied in spades by the car I’m currently road testing. It’s a spacious, powerful head turner and, believe it or not, it’s a Kia. The 2018 Kia Stinger GT1 is quickly putting a smile on my face. I enjoy driving to begin with but put me in a car with good looks and plenty of power under the hood and I’m a very happy guy.

I can usually tell how I’m going to approach a review I feel the moment I schedule the return. When it was time to hand over the keys to the handlers of the Lexus LC500h, the feeling was one of pure relief.

Zoom-zoom. For automotive enthusiasts the name Mazda is synonymous with this catchy tagline. Like some kind of automotive Rorschach test, the words “Zoom-Zoom” conjure up images of red gen-1 Miata’s carving up roads like 1.5:1 scale go-karts.

Besides the Le-Mans winning Renown Mazda 787B, Miata, and RX-7, I have been preoccupied with other marquees for most of my life. However lately anytime anyone – car fan or not – asks me what kind of car they should get in the sedan or SUV category, I immediately include Mazda. In fact, I must sound like a Mazda fanboy as I go on and on to describe the design renaissance that Mazda is undergoing, the beautiful exterior and interior design that cars like the CX-9 feature, and the sporty driving feel that Mazda focuses on.
