2022 Nissan Leaf: Aged Innovation

Now in its 12th model year, you might expect that Nissan has had tremendous development over time to improve the Leaf. In reality, it feels somewhat neglected and left to simply function.

2021 BMW X5 xDrive45e: Easing Into Electrification

The X5 has long been a staple for BMW, meeting the desires of the CUV buyer and maintaining the performance character expected of BMW. The 45e plug-in hybrid finally bridges an electric stepping stone for the X5, and it just might be the perfect compromise for many. 

2022 INFINITI QX80 Sensory – Alright For The Suburbs

The 2022 INFINITI QX80 Sensory is INFINITI’s flagship SUV. Since it has essentially remained unchanged since its debut in 2011, it is starting to...

2021 Zero DSR Black Forest: Past, Meet The Present.

The 2021 Zero DSR is incredibly capable, but it also carries a strange dichotomy of modern technology with 10 year old features. Is it still my choice bike?

2021 Volvo V90XC Review: Understated Elegance 

As mentioned in my remarks about the V90XC’s styling, I love the fact that it’s more or less a four door shooting brake. Polarizing from almost all angles, the V90 really is a looker, even in Cross Country guise.

Everything is easy to use, the learning curve is much less steep than many of its German rivals. Between the sound system and ride quality, you may even find yourself looking for excuses to drive it, I know I certainly did.

As someone who typically doesn’t enjoy driving economy hybrids, I smiled in the Prius way more than I care to admit, even if I was let down by the all wheel drive system.

I didn’t think I would enjoy it as much as I did, but it’s been a pleasant surprise.

While it doesn’t abide by the norm that trucks have to look like they belong on a work site, if the Limited were to be caught in that scenario, it would scream ‘CEO’. I actually turned around to look at it when I grabbed groceries the first night I had it, thus passing the “if you don’t turn around to look at it each time you park it, you bought the wrong one” test.
