2017 BMW X1
2017 BMW X1

The 2017 BMW X1 sits apart from other BMWs. With its front-wheel-drive, Mini-sourced platform, is the brand's entry-level subcompact crossover and a more mainstream, less passionate vehicle than you would expect from BMW. It is offered as the front-drive sDrive28i and the...Read More»

2017 Chevrolet Malibu
2017 Chevrolet Malibu

One year removed from a complete overhaul, the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu continues on as a solid mid-sizer with a good set of options and powertrain. In fact, it's hard for us to imagine a domestic mid-sizer that better exemplifies how far the Detroit Three have come in 15 years of American...Read More»

2017 Hyundai Tucson
2017 Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson was recently redesigned for the third time in the compact crossover's history last year, and for 2017 it largely stands pat aside from adding some technology updates inside that are, at least for now, relegated only to the higher-dollar trim levels. Tucson is...Read More»

2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

The 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport received a substantial refresh this year that helps cement its status as Hyundai's go-to 'tweener in its SUV lineup. Sandwiched between the bigger, three-row Santa Fe (which was also updated for 2017) and smaller Tucson, this year's Santa Fe Sport takes a...Read More»

2017 Ford Fiesta
2017 Ford Fiesta

Small cars like the Ford Fiesta get the brunt of our TCC Rating system. It's tough to make small cars look great; performance is usually middling, and interior room cramps us up, by design. Gas mileage? Subcompacts don't even win there, not compared to 35-mpg mid-size sedans and...Read More»

2017 Ford Taurus
2017 Ford Taurus

The Ford Taurus is the full-size sedan from the automaker with a pedigree that can't be overstated—when it arrived in the 1980s, it helped save the Blue Oval from bankruptcy. Back then, the Taurus was lean and radical. Now, the Taurus is on the brink of collapse itself. For 2017...Read More»

2017 Ford Flex
2017 Ford Flex

The 2017 Ford Flex has gone its own way since it was new nearly a decade ago. Among softly rendered crossover competitors the Flex's right angles are an anomaly, but its spacious and comfortable interior are what keeps it relevant so many years on. The long SUV carries forward this year...Read More»

2017 Ford Focus Electric
2017 Ford Focus Electric

Now in its sixth model year, the 2017 Ford Focus Electric is the sole battery-electric vehicle sold anywhere in the world by Ford. After falling to the bottom of the list on range and features for several years, the electric Focus gets a higher-capacity battery and the option of DC...Read More»

2017 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
2017 Ford Mustang

When the latest Ford Mustang sprang to life in 2015, the newest version of the pony-car classic took some big strides into the modern era. Did it gallop? We wouldn't pun that badly, but the 'Stang rolled over on its pony-car roots, dumped its live axle for an independent rear end, and...Read More»

2017 Ford C-Max
2017 Ford C-Max

The 2017 Ford C-Max hybrid hatchback enters its fifth model year with only the most incremental of changes. A frontal restyle so subtle you may miss it, some equipment tweaks, and a slight change to trim levels are the sole updates, along with a single new paint color. The C-Max Hybrid...Read More»

2017 Ford Escape
2017 Ford Escape

Consider the 2017 Ford Escape as a tall wagon—like most compact crossover SUVs—and you're on the mark. The Escape's chassis is sportier than most of its competitors, something that pays dividends when the road turns curvy but can be a challenge when it comes to coddling...Read More»

2017 Ford Explorer XLT Sport Appearance Package
2017 Ford Explorer

The 2017 Ford Explorer enters the new model year largely unchanged after a light overhaul last year with smoother bodywork, improved interior features, enhanced sound deadening, and a new mid-range engine option that's greatly improved over previous generations. The Explorer remains a...Read More»
