2017 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell

The 2017 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is a mid-size four-door sedan that’s powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. It doesn’t need to be plugged in to charge a battery; instead, the driver needs to refill it with high-pressure hydrogen at a specialized (and expensive) station—of...Read More»

2018 Toyota Sienna
2018 Toyota Sienna preview

The 2018 Toyota Sienna has a familiar minivan shape and mission, but its new shape and unique features separate the van from the clan—maybe that's the plan? When it goes on sale in the fall, the Sienna will be offered in a familiar and wide range of trims: L, LE, XLE, SE, and...Read More»

2018 Toyota Yaris
2018 Toyota Yaris preview

Toyota's itty-bitty subcompact hatchback adds a little more flair (or at least the appearance of it) for 2018. The changes are, admittedly, only skin deep. Underneath, the 2018 isn't expected to be substantially changed from the 2017, which has only been updated lightly since the 2012...Read More»

2018 Volvo XC60
2018 Volvo XC60 preview

In the mold of its successful XC90 three-row crossover, Volvo has recreated its mid-size XC60 for 2018. It's a much-needed update for the outgoing XC60, which had remained fairly competitive despite having been on the market for the better part of the decade. The new XC60, which should...Read More»

2016 Buick Verano Turbo
2017 Buick Verano

Buick sends its compact Verano sedan off into the sunset with a short 2017 model year and a simplified lineup that includes base, Sport Touring, and Leather models. The smaller lineup loses the 250-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, leaving only the 180-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder...Read More»

2017 Mazda CX-5
2017 Mazda CX-5

The 2017 Mazda CX-5 is new this year, and improves upon last year's model with a better interior and exterior look, quieter ride, a new-ish standard engine, and a coming turbodiesel that could be among the leaders for small crossovers in highway mileage. It's offered in Sport, Touring...Read More»

2018 Toyota C-HR
2018 Toyota C-HR

The 2018 Toyota C-HR is a small hatchback that its maker calls a crossover, despite the lack of all-wheel drive. Originally intended for the now-defunct Scion brand, it’s a well-equipped and highly stylized five-door that rides higher than most other cars of its size. The C-HR...Read More»

2017 Mini Cooper Countryman
2017 Mini Cooper Countryman review

It might share its name with the Mini Cooper Countryman that went on sale half a decade ago as the brand's first foray into the crossover world, but the model is all-new for 2017—and there's more than meets the eye. Beneath its maxi-Mini body, the Countryman shares its engines...Read More»

2018 Subaru Crosstrek preview

The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek is the sophomore followup to the surprise hit for the quirky automaker. Combining the practicality of its Impreza wagon with a taller ride height and a little more body cladding, the Crosstrek has been the Labrador retriever of the automotive universe: their...Read More»

2017 Land Rover Discovery
2017 Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover has re-discovered the icon it forgot it had. The 2017 Land Rover Discovery represents a thorough re-think of the way the British brand known for conquering the Kalahari approaches buyers who want room for everything they—and their kids—do. Based on our initial...Read More»

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar, 2017 Geneva auto show
2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar preview

If the Evoque was Land Rover's first stab at a style-driven Range Rover, Velar is the next logical step. It's a big one, too. When it arrives later this year, the Velar will be the sixth vehicle in the Land Rover lineup. With record-setting sales in the U.S., Land Rover can't really be...Read More»

2017 Kia Optima Hybrid
2017 Kia Optima Hybrid

The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid builds on a strong reputation in the form of handsome, economical Optima sedan. It doesn't have as much in its favor when talk turns to the last-generation Optima Hybrid, which wasn't as smooth or as efficient as the best hybrids in the mid-size sedan niche...Read More»
