  • Do you really need a turbocharged daily driver?

    Back when I was a kid, having a turbocharger meant you had a car with plenty of grunt. These were the days of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 5, the GC8 Subaru Impreza WRX STI, the R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R and even the 993 Porsche 911 Turbo – all high-performance machines that used forced induction to make their magic happen.

  • Honda Sensing: Driver-assist tech I didn't know I desperately needed

    As a motorcycle rider, I am accustomed to using two-wheelers with diminutive dimensions to navigate congested city streets. That is why getting behind the wheel of a rather bulky Honda HR-V was initially daunting. I’d much prefer to ride Hondas with the winged logo. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to drive Honda’s latest crossover, more so because of its Honda Sensing driver-assist technology. Honda Sensing is like Spiderman’s "Spidey-sense" in that it detects potential hazard
