Honda Accord Crosstour EX-L

Honda Accord Crosstour EX-L

For those who think all cars look the same these days I offer up exhibit A-  The new Honda Accord Crosstour.  While the rest of the industry steadfastly applies the “box on wheels” formula to crossovers, Honda just says no to the same old same old.  Marketed as a crossover, Accord Crosstour is essentially a [...]

2010 Audi Q5 Premium Plus

2010 Audi Q5 Premium Plus

Who’d have thought 5 years ago that the hot luxury category would be crossovers?  Sure there were rumblings.  The Lexus RX350 has been the brand’s top seller for years.  But really, it could be argued that they’re simply tall station wagons.  Into the fray comes the versatile Audi Q5. Audi has always made great looking [...]

BMW X6 xDrive50i

Hey there Mr./Ms. Unique Person. You deserve a unique car. Sports sedans are a dime a dozen these days. Luxury crossovers aren’t far behind. Perhaps an SAC is what you’re looking for. Want one? You’ll have to shop at a BMW store because at the moment, the only way to get one is to buy [...]

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ

2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ

What did I do last summer? A 900 mile family road trip in California. A nightmare for some but I like driving (and, needless to say, my family). Voyages like these are the perfect test for family rigs and for this trip I’ve chosen Chevy’s new 2010 Equinox. Yes, I’ve already reviewed it but that [...]

Nissan LEAF Prices Released. Math Skills Required.

Nissan LEAF Prices Released.  Math Skills Required.

Nissan released pricing for the LEAF electric car today. Got your calculators ready? MSRP is $32,780 MSRP but that means little. Lop off the $7,500 federal tax credit and it drops to $25,280. But wait, there’s more (or is that less?). Different state and local incentives that may lower the [...]

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Debuts at NY Auto Show

The CTS-V is one of the Driven teams favorite performance vehicles. It just got a whole lot more practical with the addition of the Sport Wagon variant. You need to fetch a bag of mulch or get your kid off to piano lessons right quick? 556 HP, Magnetic Ride Control and Brembo [...]

2010 Porsche Cayman

2010 Porsche Cayman

Porsches aren’t like other cars.  The ignition is on the left hand side of the steering column.  Their designs are fiercely original.  The company doesn’t compete on price alone.  There’s also a good chance you’ll find the engine behind the passengers.  No, not many car companies do it the way Porsche does.
Desirable?  Sure.  Affordable?  No [...]

True utility for those happy to admit they have a family
By Tom Voelk
To understand that cars are as much about fashion as they are transportation, one only has to look at the minivan.  Back when Chrysler unveiled Caravan and Voyager in the early 80’s they couldn’t make enough of them.  Hot as blue jeans in [...]

Volvo XC60

Volvo XC60

 A link to the Drive XC6o video review on YouTube is at the end of this review.
Selling cars these days is brutal.  Put the economy aside for a moment.  Style, utility and high quality don’t impress like before because everyone builds great product.  Vehicles last longer.  More and more brands have appeared.  They’re competing for [...]

Bentley Continental Supersports

Bentley Continental Supersports

Chances are you will never lay eyes on a Bentley Continental Supersports.   It’s produced in very small numbers.  Ironic, because in a word it’s about more.  More exclusive than an already rare standard Continental GT.  More cylinders than two Toyota Corollas.  More money too (but you probably figured that one out by now).  The economy [...]

Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Quad Cab

Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie Quad Cab

The most popular vehicles in America are not cars, they’re pickups.  Ford F150 and Chevy Silverado have the #1 and 2 slots nailed down.  Taking the bronze in truck sales is… no, not Toyota Tundra.   It’s Dodge Ram.  Their new model keeps the aggressive look but adds sophistication, if not subtlety.  There’s enough chrome on [...]

Nissan cube SL

Nissan cube SL

If you weren’t on an automotive website chances are you’d think the phrase “cube Mobile Device” described a cell phone.  Maybe a gadget from a Transformers movie.  It’s not.  It’s a car… or perhaps a clubhouse.
After 10 years of strong sales in Japan, Nissan has brought this automobile/dorm room/conversation piece to the US.  The cube (no capitol [...]
