One of the most time-consuming parts of our job here at LA Car is scheduling cars for our staff to review. Despite the best efforts of our OEM friends and the dedication of their vehicle logistics partners, it can be cumbersome to get the keys to a car we want to try in a timeframe that works for our schedule – let alone three.

With that in mind, we were grateful to see the invitation from the Motor Press Guild (MPG for short – by the way best acronym ever for a trade group) to their first-ever “Crossover Cruise,” an event where we could show up and get behind the wheel of three vehicles all in the same day.

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.
