2020 BMW M8

2020 BMW M8 First Drive Review

After politely asking if I can switch my BMW M8 Competition Coupe to drift mode, the pit crew worker responds with a quick “No.” Come to think of it, choosing to send 617 horsepower to only the rear wheels on a damp racetrack with off-camber corners and blind crests does sound like the etching on […]

2020 Subaru Outback

2020 Subaru Outback First Drive Review

The 2020 Subaru Outback marks the sixth generation of a vehicle, first introduced for 1994, that is in no small part the lynchpin to its company’s current success. The Outback’s sales have increased in every generation, with more than 700,000 sold in the most recent generation that started with the 2015 model year. Subaru doesn’t […]

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. The Taco is crushing its competition, recording nearly 246,000 sales last year and on its way to […]

Bentley Bentayga Hybrid

Bentley Bentayga Hybrid First Drive Review

The new Bentley Bentayga Plug-In Hybrid is the venerable British brand’s cheapest vehicle. Certainly, with a base price of $158,000, it is not inexpensive by any stretch. In fact, it costs more than four times the average price of a new vehicle purchased in America this year. But after driving an advance version of the […]

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 […]

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus Second Drive Review

An electric vehicle has an appeal you can only understand once you’ve owned one. Sure, you might feel good about going green, analyzing every environmental consideration like our Alex Kierstein did recently. But there’s a less noble, more immediately tangible reason to buy an EV — it really brings out one’s inner cheapskate. There is […]
