Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

No matter your situational circumstances there is always a need for a full-size luxury chariot that can transport six to seven family members or friends in style and with grace. Be it prom for your kid and his/her best friends or Sunday brunch with the crew, the impressive 2019 INFINITI QX80 Limited 4WD and its well-appointed interior is perfect for the tasks at hand.

During my week-long test evaluation I utilized the mucho grande SUV to escort my teen daughters and their companions to various activities since it was spring break. Of course, I am always the parent who is volunteered to pick up, drop off and chaperone since everyone knows my automotive journalistic profession. But I didn’t mind because the opportunity effectively allowed me to operate the QX80 as an owner while garnering instantaneous praise since passengers love utilities of this proportion. This automotive category is also special because it is represented by only a few players such as the Cadillac Escalade, Lexus LX and the all-new BMW X7. You could include the Land Rover Range Rover as well but this particular SUV only has two rows of seats opposed to three. [Read more…]

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Aside from the performance happy WRX, the entire Subaru lineup makes you feel like an adventure is forthcoming once you get behind the wheel. Whether it’s a family camping excursion or a mountain bike meetup with the “Fit Fathers” crew, the go-anywhere utilities are indicative of active lifestyles. I felt no different when a 2019 Crimson Red Pearl Subaru Forester Touring was delivered to our headquarters for a weekly review.

2020 Kia Soul: Think Outside the Box

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

The formidable Kia Soul was born and bred on the rhythms and energy of music, so of course you can say it’s a Soul Rebel as Bob Marley poignantly chanted about. When it first hit the streets in 2009, the small, boxy ride was full of positive vibrations that made owners alike feel good about their ride while spawning joyful emotions during commutes. For 2019 the third generation derivative is showy as ever with enough flavor to satisfy a crowd full of urban hipsters. [Read more…]

A dazzling crossover vehicle in the center of winter is always ideal for transporting a batch of kids to the multitude of activities and sporting events they partake in.

They loved our vehicle’s Soul Red Crystal Metallic hue but enjoyed the second row legroom even more. Starting at $24,350, the 2019 CX-5 can be had in five trims including Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and the top-of-the-line Signature which could run you $39,325. [Read more…]

2018 Hyundai IONIQ Electric Limited: An Autoganic Delight

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

My perspective on alternative energy sources is quite simple. I absolutely love electric vehicles (EV) and the potential they have for impacting and reducing human reliance on crude oil. Global Warming is not a myth folks so we have to absolutely do all we can to sustain Mother Earth’s future by righting many of the wrongs committed through pollution. Therefore, I become enamored when automotive brands like Hyundai commit to resolutions that help rectify the quandary by way vehicles running off our electrical grid such as the 2018 IONIQ Electric Limited we recently tested.

Our midsize sedan came in a Symphony Air Silver exterior hue and black on black interior which was rather roomy and designed with recycled and ecologically-sensitive materials. In the backrow the kids had all the legroom needed for their daily antics without complaints and the headroom for my 6’ frame was more than adequate. Moreover, to reduce battery usage, Hyundai’s climate control system can be switched to ‘Driver only’ mode. [Read more…]
