2021 Hyundai Elantra: When a Compact Sedan Grows Up

Just when we thought conventional four-door sedans were afterthoughts, along comes the 2021 Hyundai Elantra. From the onset, the Elantra is a bigger, sleeker, and wider car, which is great if you want to lead the supersized compact segment dominated by the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. I have an inkling for Elantras in general. I’ve driven lots of Elantras over the years, although I never had the chance of owning one. And the introduction of the 2021 Hyundai Elantra makes me think I was mi...

Beach Cruiser: An Upcycled Suzuki GS650 from California

It’s not unusual for car guys to transition to motorcycle customization: after all, the skills required are similar. Johnny Nguyen proves that theory—he’s worked on cars most of his life, but lately he’s been building some pretty slick bikes. Johnny operates Upcycle Motor Garage as a one-man-band out of his workshop in Anaheim, California. This stripped-down 1981 Suzuki GS650 GL is his latest work, and it’s a total product of its environment. Built as a personal project rather than on comm...

2020 Yamaha NIKEN – [Model Overview]

2019 Yamaha Niken and Niken GT Contents Model Overview Specifications Features Photos Videos Links The Yamaha Niken is an interesting motorcycle, to be sure, especially as it is technically a tricycle. We say technically, because from the outset, the Niken was designed to be a comfortable, sporty touring bike that could wake up and be a screaming supersport if the mood hit. Powered by a 847 cc inline 3 that pushes out about 115 crank HP and 70 lbs-ft of crank torque, the engine is also ...

Hot stuff: A Honda CBX 750 built by a firefighter

The annals of motorcycling history are filled with ‘tweeners’—motorcycles that improved upon outgoing models, but eventually fizzled out to make way for the next generation. Just like the Honda CBX 750 F. The CBX 750 F was an update on the beloved (and indeed iconic) CB750, but it wasn’t nearly as popular, and wasn’t really sold in the US either. It was pretty cool in its own way though, with a ‘modern’ DOHC 16-valve motor and radical sport touring styling that, like most things from the 80s...

Meet the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R

Could This Be the Most Powerful 250cc Motorcycle? I’ve reported on the fact that Kawasaki seemed to be working on a four-cylinder 250cc Ninja. Well, now that is known to be true. The company unveiled the motorcycle at the Tokyo Motor Show. The bike takes the small Ninja sportbike to whole new levels by offering an inline four-cylinder engine that has a small displacement of 249cc.  Kawasaki has released the displacement and layout of the engine, but the company has not yet released power number...

2020 Honda Accord Hybrid: A Brief But Detailed Walk Around

The 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid arrives with plenty of new technology.  Honda Sensing is standard on all trims and includes Traffic Sign Recognition.  The latest Honda Accord Hybrid is here, literally in dealer showrooms as you read this. It’s worth noting this little gem gets nearly 50 miles per gallon, and can boast best-in-class horsepower. The 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid has an EPA city and combined fuel economy rating of 48 mpg, and a highway rating of 47. That, in my book, counts as impressive...

2020 Toyota Highlander: The Truck-Like Station Wagon

The Toyota Highlander SUV receives an extensive overhaul for 2020. A gasoline V6 is available as well as a hybrid option with all-wheel drive. Interior features include wireless charging and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.  For those that look at the new Subaru Outback and say, “I need a little more truck than that,” might I direct your attention to the 2020 Toyota Highlander. If the Outback is a station wagon with off-road capabilities, consider the Highlander to be a truck with station wagon cap...

The Nineties are calling: November’s Kawasaki Zephyr 750

The Kawasaki Zephyr 750 is one of those under-the-radar bikes that deserves a higher profile. It played a big part in kickstarting the retro boom in Europe in the 90s, but mysteriously fell flat in the USA—despite outclassing the Honda CB750 Nighthawk on almost every front. “The stable, no-surprises Zephyr works like a standard is supposed to,” said Cycle World at the time. “We can’t imagine why this bike isn’t selling.” The Zephyr 750 has plenty of fans amongst riders in the UK, and two o...

2020 Camry TRD & Avalon TRD: Toyota’s Idris Elba

Limited-edition Camry TRD and Avalon TRD are a first for Toyota.  Both feature a track-tuned chassis, cat-back exhaust, and matte-black 19-inch alloy wheels. Look, sometimes, all you want is good, dependable, solid transportation. The problem with that though is how good, dependable, and solid can be so boring. Nobody ever said, “Hmm, Idris Elba, or Jim, the balding middle-aged guy from accounting? I’ll go with Jim!” Which brings us to the automotive equivalent of Jim: Toyota’s Camry and Avalo...

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS Hands-On Review

#TeamGreen The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS is a sport touring bike that I was wanting to review for a while. I like the aggressive styling of the bike and after sitting on it in the showroom, I know I wanted to take this Motorcycle for a test drive. I really like the way the bike feels when you are sitting on it. The handlebars are just back enough that you are sitting in a semi-upright sport touring position and it just feels right. I would like to thank Blackfoot Motosports in Calgary, Alberta ...

2019 Acura ILX: A Budget-Friendly & Sporty Luxury Sedan

The 2019 Acura ILX stands out when compared to prior model years.  Although the engine could use a bit more power, the tech and safety features are solid.  Out with the old, in with the new. The refreshed 2019 Acura ILX is more than a posh Civic. It is a budget-oriented choice in the niche of small, premium sedans. I’ve noticed two types of buyers during my many years writing about cars: those that truly know their stuff and those who simply want a nice car. If you belong to the latter, take a...

2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe Get New Sport Trim

When it came to upgrading the Civic for 2019, Honda decided that the usual recipe of adding a bunch of new equipment just won’t do. So they went ahead and gave the 2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe a new Sport trim level along with refreshed styling.  So it’s kind of like the 2019 Civic has got a facelift and that should make the car a more appealing prospect in the eyes of the customers. The styling upgrades on the 2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe are no drastic and only serve to further boo...

2019 Honda Insight: The 55 MPG Beast

The 2019 Honda Insight hybrid is here, and it offers a whole lot of practicality and reliability with a familiar Honda face – none of that goofy, “look at me driving my car from Mars styling” (cough, Prius, cough) – and it gets you 55 MPG in the city. Fifty-Five? Holy Sh- Features & Trim Levels It is, indeed, a relatively normal looking car. I’m not sure why the first gen hybrids, Priuseseseses and such, had to go with such goofy styling, but all I can assume is that now the car buying public ...

2019 BMW Z4 M40i Prototype Review: BMW Breathes Life Into a Forgotten Droptop

On a postcard-perfect day in the Provence region of France, we agree to keep our phones tucked away in our bags. In a convoy, we pass through the security gate of the former Michelin, now BMW proving ground in Miramas and wind our way to a garage on the other side of the enormous facility. Our hosts are a small handful of immensely friendly, obviously proud, and enthusiastic engineers responsible for bringing the BMW Z4 convertible back to our roads next spring.

2018 Ford F-150 Diesel First Test: Knowing Your Audience

I know better. Driving from Las Vegas to Los Angeles on a Sunday afternoon is a circle of hell unto itself. After three days of touring wide-open interstates and empty state highways in Colorado and Utah, the soul-crushing, back-to-reality traffic leaving Las Vegas was an unwelcome end to a wonderful road trip. Thing is, I wasn’t nearly as frustrated or exasperated with it as I normally would be. The easy-riding F-150 Power Stroke diesel gets a lot of credit for that. Normally, a pickup wouldn’t...

2018 Ford F-150 XL Diesel Commercial Truck First Test

The diesel variants of Ford’s F-150 XL and XLT are available only to commercial fleet buyers. Equipped with the 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel engine, these trims will not show up at a Ford dealer unless you have a Fleet Identification Number (FIN). You should also know that the diesel engine carries a $2,400 premium over the price of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, the engine that’s closest to the diesel’s towing numbers. That’s not cheap. The biggest benefit, however, is in fuel economy. We ju...

The cute little compact crossover by Nissan is about to hit the showrooms across the United States.

2018.5 Nissan Rogue Sport Gets Advanced Safety Kit

The mid-year upgrade for the popular crossover Nissan Rogue Sport has given a significant safety tech upgrade. This version of the Rogue now comes as standard with Auto Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), plus Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), making it really hard to crash this thing.  Not that people won’t find a way to get into accidents in spite of all the tech. Still, the presence of all this gear should compensate for some of the inevi...

Run 10s with a 435hp Factory Engine! Spoiler Alert: Ford!

One of the most exciting categories in drag racing is NMRA G-Force Racing Transmission Coyote Stock. Since 2012, Coyote Stock is the home for Mustang racers who want to dump the clutch, go wheels up, and jam gears deep in the 10s at 130 mph—all with a 435hp production engine. --> The “hook” is that all Coyote Stock competitors use identical sealed 5.0-liter Coyote crate engines from Ford Performance. The engine is basically a stock 2017 Mustang GT powerplant, save for an upgra...

Chevrolet Cars Set For “Restyled” Faces

Coherency. Coherency is a good thing, especially when it comes to corporate brands and styling. Ideally, you want everything you make to have it. Take Chevrolet, for example. You wouldn’t want a Chevy Malibu to look way different from a Chevy Impala. So, when a car company, Chevrolet in this case, makes a styling update, that update has to propagate across the entire company line. Special Characteristics Mainly what we’re talking about here is styling cues; belt lines, overall greenhouse shape...
