I recently had the chance to drive the new 2015 Porsche Panamera S, and I have to admit it kind of changed my perspective on a Porsche that isn’t a compact sports car. I had initially pooh-pooh’d the idea that the Cayenne or Panamera were “real” Porsche’s. But I’ve done an about face. Porsche has... Read more »

2015 Mazda3: Great car for anyone who lives in the city
The Mazda3 is a perennial favorite, and the 2015 model is no different. Because of it’s utilitarian hatchback and excellent city fuel economy (29 mpg!), it’s one of those cars that makes a lot of sense to own in Chicago.

I recently had the chance to check out the all-new 2015 Subaru Outback, and I have to say that Subaru knocked this one out of the park. The first thing you’ll notice from the photo gallery below is that the design isn’t radically different. Subaru calls this more of an evolutionary step than a revolutionary... Read more »
