2020 Toyota Tacoma

2020 Toyota Tacoma First Drive Review

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma may be a mild-sauce update of a truck whose basic design dates back to 2005, but when you look at the sales charts, it certainly doesn’t seem like customers are clamoring for something all-new.

Subaru BRZ tS

Subaru BRZ tS Returning For 2020?

Last year Subaru rolled the special edition BRZ tS onto the market, the tS standing for “tuned by STI.” Although the mad men at STI didn’t inject more go into the 2.0-liter boxer-four with 205 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque, they did apply the whetstone to the BRZ to provide sharper edges for that […]

2020 Kia Cadenza

2020 Kia Cadenza Shows Its New Face In Mid-Cycle Refresh

When we drove the all-new 2017 Kia Cadenza a few years back, our main takeaway was that “it’s fine.” There was nothing particularly remarkable about it, but it’s a solid sedan. With the facelifted and refreshed 2020 Cadenza just revealed today, Kia looks like it’s reaching a bit more, in an attempt to move beyond […]

2019 Hyundai Kona

2019 Hyundai Kona Review And Buying Guide

In a crowded subcompact crossover segment, the 2019 Hyundai Kona stands out. Its exterior design is perhaps polarizing, but it’s guaranteed to get more attention than its more egg-shaped competitors. It offers two engines, one of which is average, but the other is a turbocharged unit that makes the Kona significantly quicker than the slow […]
