Steven Ewing has had a life-long love for all things automotive. In addition to having several relatives employed by various automakers, Ewing was exposed to the inner-workings of the automotive media at a young age. After getting his foot in the door as an intern at Automobile magazine, Ewing spent four years at Winding Road before joining the Autoblog team in early 2010. Steven is a proud resident of the city of Detroit, and though cars are his true passion, he also enjoys playing the drums, traveling, being hilarious (and modest), and eating brunch.

    Quick Spin: 2015 Nissan Juke
    Turbocharged Oddity Ups Its Funk Factor 1418230680

    I didn't always like the Nissan Juke. When it launched in 2010, I just couldn't get over the way it looked – it came across as super weird, and kind of hideous at first blush. But I slowly warmed up to the funky little crossover/hatchback/thing, and after spending some time behind the wheel, ...

    First Drive: 2015 Nissan Murano
    Third Time's The Charm 1418057820

    The Murano has an interesting position within the Nissan stable. On one hand, its size puts it between the Rogue and Pathfinder, both of which are geared more toward families, big and small. And while the Murano could easily be used for hauling your brood, that's not exactly its forte. After all, ...

    1417465860

    According to a pair of reports from Hearst's car mags, Car and Driver and Road & Track, Ford has a whole mess of good stuff on deck for the Detroit Auto Show in January. And it all sounds awesome.

    Confirmed: Mitsubishi Mirage sedan confirmed for US
    1416942900

    The Mitsubishi Mirage easily takes the cake as the worst new car I've driven in the last year. Actually, make that the worst new car I've driven in several years (Side Note: when was the last time I drove a Smart Fortwo?). But regardless of what I, or my colleagues, think about the Mirage, it's ...

    Los Angeles: Editors' Choice: Top Five 2014 LA Auto Show Debuts
    In Which We Pick Our Favorites From Los Angeles 1416851100

    It's often easy to jump to conclusions about what will absolutely steal the show at an automotive expo. Something ultra-sexy, fast, and exotic? Safe bet. A brown, Swedish shooting brake? Sounds like a winner to us. But sometimes, when the votes are tallied, we even surprise ourselves. And that's ...

    Quick Spin: 2015 Audi A3 Cabriolet
    Four Rings, Four Seats, For Fun 1416589020

    When my 758-mile journey on the A3 TDI Challenge came to an end in Boulevard, CA, Audi had a very nice consolation prize waiting for me: the 2015 A3 Cabriolet you see here. And with miles left to drive before reaching my hotel in Coronado (just outside of San Diego), what better way to celebrate my ...

    Los Angeles: We obsessively covered the 2014 LA Auto Show
    1416531900

    If you believe the Missing Persons song, "nobody walks in LA." And considering how important the cars of the LA Auto Show are (not to mention how many times we've almost been run down while crossing the street), that's a song lyric we can certainly get behind. SoCal loves cars, you guys.

    Los Angeles: Volkswagen Golf R 400 Concept still makes us swoon
    1416524400

    We know, we know – this hot little guy isn't really new or anything. Volkswagen first rolled out the Golf R 400 concept in Beijing earlier this year, and since its debut, we've heard rumors that the German automaker might-perhaps-maybe-hopefully build the thing. Its showing here in Los ...

    Ford 1.0L EcoBoost 3-Cylinder: Autoblog Technology of the Year award finalist
    1416448800

    As the old saying goes, "There's no replacement for displacement." But these days, many automakers are launching powerful, downsized engines that offer similar or better power output than their predecessors, all while offering improvements in fuel economy and emissions. These days, we're seeing ...

    Dodge SRT Performance Pages: Autoblog Technology of the Year finalist
    1416448800

    Dodge dropped a 707-horsepower bomb on us this year, by way of the supercharged, 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 engine found under the hood of the 2015 Challenger coupe and Charger sedan. That's an absolute ton of power, and no matter how well-heeled a driver you may be, these Hellcat models demand respect ...

    Take a long, hard look, folks. This is the refreshed 2016 Mazda CX-5, which makes its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show today. And if you're thinking, "Say, that looks just like the old one," you really aren't alone. The visible updates certainly aren't major – Mazda has instead focused on ...

    Los Angeles: 2016 BMW X5 M is big and bold, not beautiful
    1416422400

    Awesome as it is, the BMW X5 M has never really been an attractive machine. Big and bulgy are the themes here, and that's only more pronounced with the X5's most recent refresh. But no matter, the X5 M has never been about looks – for this machine, it's all about performance, and BMW's hi-po ...

    A couple of months ago, we brought you spy shots of a Volkswagen Golf R that had been stretched into a proper wagon shape.

    If the Honda HR-V feels awfully familiar to you by now, you're not alone. We've seen it debut in Japanese form (dubbed "Vezel"), caught a prototype in Paris, and Honda first showed us the US-spec version in press-photo form all the way back at the New York Auto Show in April. We're finally going to ...

    1416261600

    If there's one thing you can count on, it's that the renewed rivalry between the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro will never, ever cease. For every version of Ford's pony car, there's an equally potent Chevrolet. And so with the debut of the Camaro Z/28 earlier this year, Ford has responded with a ...

    Get ready, world: The 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has officially been unleashed.
