Lewis Zhuo  Writer/Presenter/Founder at @clutchkickig Writer at @autonotastv I like writing about cars and stuff. Latest video below. Seattle, WA

This is the new 2019 @toyotausa RAV4 and I love this color. It also looks like a 4Runner with it’s boxy-er shape.

Ahhh yes. The @acura NSX. This thing gets a lot of hate and I think it’s just because expectations were different than reality. People hoped for a throwback to the old one: a user-friendly, driver-focused supercar. But it turned out to be a miniature Porsche 918 Spyder for a lot less. I’m a fan.

For 2019, @toyotausa has the 86 TRD Special Edition. 1418 will be made but fret not, you can get most of the special upgrades on a regular production Subaru BRZ with Performance Package. Thoughts on the stripes and those wheels?

I’m a huge fan of how the new @acura ILX looks. Just wished it had more exciting engine options. Can you imagine the Civic Type R drivetrain with this body? Throw in Acura’s SH-AWD with a manual and I’d buy two.

Okay here’s a fun one. This is a @toyotausa Corolla Hatchback that @toyotaracing built as a drift car. It’s rear wheel drive converted, has a 2.7 liter turbocharged four that makes 850hp. Yes please. Yay or nay?

The @hyundaiusa Veloster N. Super cool looking new hot hatch to compete with the VW GTI and the Ford Focus ST. The interior was kind of cheap but I suspect the money was spent on the chassis. Will also test this later. Also, manual only. I approve.

@mazdausa unveiled the 2019 CX-5. Some highlights: Turbo 2.5 liter four cylinder engine giving it the power it deserves, upgraded interior materials and finishes and most importantly Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. I’ll have to test it next year. It was also fantastic meeting @justdayuum in person.

So we’re finishing up editing our review of the 2018 @bmwusa M2 for @clutchkickig but here is the 2019 M2. It’s only available with the Competition Package and has the M3/M4’s engine which means it has a real M engine. I appreciate this new color as well.

There’s usually nothing too crazy at the @seattleautoshow since it’s not as big as something like the LA Auto Show. However, @volvocarusa had the new S60 Polestar which I was told, only 200 are being made. It’s probably one of the rarest cars there yet no one batted an eye. I was told the standard plug-in hybrid version of the S60 makes 400hp so I assume the Polestar will be even more. No info on pricing or specs but it looks fantastic. I’ll have mine in Polestar Blue.

Finally, Day 10 of #10cars10days. This is one of the most amazing cars I’ve ever driven. It’s the @lexususa LC500 and although it’s not super sharp and sporty like I like my cars, that would be missing the point. The LC is all about being comfortable while turning heads and it succeeds in every way. The styling is amazing, the intake and exhaust noises are giggle-inducing and the interior is perfect. I rarely receive such an emotional response from a car and this sets a new bar. 11/10 would recommend. I nominate @travelwithjohn to carry on the challenge. 📷: @thathalfjapaneseguy.

Day 9 of the #10cars10days challenge. I’ve chosen the @genesis_usa G80 Sport. Genesis has been throughly impressing me with their quality and value. The G80 sport is also very pretty. They have a little bit to go in terms of chassis tuning but their fit and finish is up there. I nominate @timcreason/@poisonedstudios to continue the challenge.

Day 8 of #10cars10days. One of my favorite GT cars is the @astonmartinlagonda DBS. The old one, not the new one that just came out. I loved the carbon fiber and other cosmetic upgrades over the DB9. I loved that it came with a 6 speed manual. The fact that James Bond drove it in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace definitely helps (that opening car chase though). This shape is so beautiful. I nominate @bfomoto to continue the challenge.
