Review Of The Honda HR-V: Something For Everyone

On: Thu, Jan 7, 2016 at 10:10AM | By: Lou Ruggieri


Honda HR-V test 2

In the modern world of automobiles, it seems car companies are falling over each other trying to uncover niches in any way, shape, or form they can, all in the name of sales. The idea that "If we build it, they will come" is apparently the prevailing thought among corporate think tanks in recent years. But, over the years, we have seen quite a few cars that have been built that, quite honestly, didn't need to be. Sure, we know there were a few people who bought the Nissan Murano convertible, or the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, or even the Chrysler Crossfire SRT-6, maybe. But, honestly, we are pretty certain those six or seven people could've probably chosen something else, and while the price of someone's happiness is up for debate, we are also willing to believe that maybe the buckets of dollars in R&D to create those cars were not justified by their very small sales numbers. But for every car that has come along to fill a gap that wasn't really there, sometimes there is a car that does. Leave it to Honda to build a car we didn't know we may have needed.

2004-2008 Subaru Forester test 2

The Subaru Forester is a sort of a 'Diet SUV', designed for those who like to worry about the planet... and puppies. Needless to say, the second-gen Forester struggled to compete in the SUV-crazy world of the 2000s. It did, however, find a devoted following in snow-covered hippy communes like Colorado and Washington state. So they added a WRX-esque turbo-4 to provide adequate power at high elevations (*cough* *cough*, pardon the pun), and unwittingly created the fastest SUV on the market...

2015 Subaru Legacy test 2

The world of midsize sedans is a brutal market to compete in. The big champs of the segment are the Camry and the Accord, which trade blows year after year battling for supremacy of the heavyweight sales division. But aside from those perennial all-stars, there are some other competitors that have been trying to make their mark against those bruisers for some time. Known mostly for their all-wheel drive systems and, more recently, their rally-inspired WRX models, Subaru has been trying to establish itself as more than just a boy-racer brand in recent years. The model in center stage of those attempts is their midsize model, the Legacy.

Ballin' on a Budget: 2009-2014 Hyundai Genesis test 1-1

The Hyundai Genesis is like gluten-free gluten, or healthy bacon. It exists to pamper and delight, yet it comes with none of the drawbacks normally associated with such personal decadence.

So from the practical people at Hyundai Automotive Oatmeal, may we present the latest way to Ball on a Budget:  The double-bacon-fudge dipped 2009–2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan...


Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Subaru Tribeca

Great Cars That Nobody Bought: Subaru Tribeca test 1-1

In the image conscious world of family transportation, the Subaru Tribeca sat in the corner like a nerdy girl with braces. She was probably smarter and more capable than all of those cheerleading Toyotas. But since she lacked the beauty and breeding of the popular CUVs, nobody asked her to the prom at Cul-de-sac High. And that's a shame, because Miss Tribeca turned into a real looker on the used market...

Chrysler has issued a recall of its brand new Jeep Cherokee from the past two models years.
