Lexus NX300: Smooth and sporty

If there’s one vehicle in the Lexus line-up that I’ve been very curious about to try and enjoy, it has been the NX300.

‘Talisay-burgring’ puts HR-V through its paces

Expedition EL: Big, bold and beautiful

I’ve always had a soft-spot for the Ford Expedition. Back in 1997, as a freshman in college, our family bought a grey-market toreador red Ford Expedition in Eddie Bauer V8 trim with the bigger 5.4-liter engine that just blew away the smaller-engined 4.6-liter V8s.
