Off Roading, But Not in a Wrangler

It’s the king of the outdoors, the simple and long admired Jeep Wrangler, but not everyone is a Jeep lover. Some people would love to have a great off roading vehicle and might not appreciate the simplicity or the rough riding that is part of the Wrangler experience. Whether you want some luxury added to your off roader or you need to know you have a compliant SUV that can handle the roads as much as the trails, here are some that will certainly fit that bill for you.

When You Get Excited About Engines

If you love grease under your nails and the smell of fumes around the garage you might be a gearhead. If you happen to enjoy the turning f a wrench and understand what compression ratios mean in an engine you might be a gearhead. When you’re more likely to give your wife a small block V8 for her birthday than a necklace you might be a gearhead (and a soon to be divorced one unless your wife’s a gearhead as well). (more…)

Another Model We Don’t Get

This is getting a bit ridiculous? European automakers have for years left out the US when it comes to some of their models, usually because of the stricter regulations that have to be met to be offered on our roads. It seems that cars which are smaller wouldn’t have a problem functioning in the US, but Audi has a car that once again won’t be offered to the North American market. This should come as no real surprise since the stablemates aren’t either. This new model is the RS1 and it is expected to be sold in Europe starting in 2018. (more…)

2017 Mazda CX-3: Fun Where You Expect It

The Mazda lineup is full of vehicles that are made to be fun to drive. Each and every one of them is built with the ideal driving dynamics for that particular vehicle and when you want an SUV that’ small and active the CX-3 is the right choice. The CX-3 is as close to the Miata as you can get in the SUV market and gives you the rear space you won’t find in the roadster, but want to have in a subcompact SUV that leads the way in a segment that’s quickly becoming overcrowded.

A Smart Choice in the Audi Lineup

Driving an Audi gives you the exceptional German luxury experience you want from a lineup of vehicles that have the most impressive interiors on the market. As we discuss higher power and more agility on the roads it seems the idea of more fuel mileage in the luxury segments has gone by the wayside in order to have vehicles that are powerful and able to carve up the road. Someone at Audi was wise enough to take a step back and assess the situation to notice there’s room for at least one more A4 model. (more…)

Any Sign of Weakness can Cause and Attack

Watch the nature shows on TV and you will see exactly what happens when an animal is targeted a prey and shows a sign of weakness. As soon as its back is turned or its defenses are down the predator strikes and strikes hard causing severe injuries to the victim which often results in the death of the prey. This is the natural order of things in the wild regardless of how gruesome it may seem and is even an example of what can happen in the business world when one competitor falls from their platform.

2017 BMW X3: Sport and Activity

BMW is determined to redefine the classifications we’re used to for vehicles. Whatever happened to the days when you had sports cars, trucks, vans, cars and SUVs? Now ever category appears to have numerous sub-categories causing some confusion and avoiding any form of direct competition among the vehicles offered. The BMW X3 is a great example of what the brand is attempting to do to the market. This isn’t an SUV or even a CUV, it’s an SAV which stands for Sport Activity Vehicle and is probably the right name for what the X3 happens to be. (more…)
