2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris

Walk into a Mercedes-Benz showroom and the 2018 Metris is perhaps the vehicle you’d last expect to see. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris is a smaller, commercial-oriented van available in passenger and cargo configurations. Available in fleet-oriented Worker and more configurable...Read More»

2018 Ford Super Duty
2018 Ford Super Duty

The 2018 Ford Super Duty series spans a wide spectrum of big pickup trucks including swanky, near-luxury models, bare-bones work trucks, towing champs, and nearly every step in between. It was redesigned last year to bring the big rigs in line with its best-selling Ford F-150 light-duty...Read More»

2018 Hyundai Ioniq
2018 Hyundai Ioniq

The 2018 Hyundai Ioniq carries over from its debut year largely unchanged, but with a new member of the lineup. It’s a subcompact to compact five-door hatchback that sits between the similarly sized but less expensive Elantra and the larger, pricier Sonata mid-size sedan in price...Read More»

2018 BMW M3
2018 BMW M3

The 2018 BMW M3 has work to do even before anyone gets in and starts it up. It has a history to live up to and a fanbase to satisfy, and that’s not always easy. BMW M3s have been poster cars on young enthusiasts’ bedroom walls. The iconic cars of the 1980s and 1990s fostered...Read More»

2018 Toyota Land Cruiser
2018 Toyota Land Cruiser

The 2018 Toyota Land Cruiser is an archaic enigma. It’s certainly outclassed on-road by most of its rivals, and yet it’s something nearly all of us would park in our garages. We’ve rated it a 6.4 out of 10 overall, but there’s more to the 2018 Land...Read More»

2018 Toyota Prius C
2018 Toyota Prius C

The 2018 Toyota Prius C remains the least expensive hybrid from the company that’s made more hybrids than any other. Now in its seventh and perhaps last year, the 2018 Prius C is a compact hatchback that’s the smallest of the four-car Prius lineup. For 2018, it gets some...Read More»

2018 Toyota Yaris
2018 Toyota Yaris

Fear not, buyers on a budget. There are good new cars available at low prices that offer reliable transportation with decent amenities. The 2018 Toyota Yaris could be one of those options, depending on the model. Why model? Because the Yaris is one name for two cars—the hatchback...Read More»

2018 Ford Flex
2018 Ford Flex

We loved the Ford Flex when it was new. Then again, we also loved the iPhone’s 2G connectivity, the Atlanta Thrashers, and Chicago’s Summer Olympic bid in the same year. We’re not fickle, we’ve just outlived most of those things. The Flex–still sold in SE...Read More»

2018 Toyota 4Runner
2018 Toyota 4Runner

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner is the automotive equivalent of #throwbackthursday. It’s outdated in so many ways, but a most willing companion when, as John Muir so famously wrote, “the mountains are calling.” We’ve rated it a 5.7 out of 10 on our scale. Against more...Read More»

2018 Toyota RAV4

If you’re in the market for a five-seat compact crossover SUV, or at least some combination of those attributes, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is almost certainly on your list. After all, it’s one of the best-selling cars on the road, a crossover as likely to be seen in Portland...Read More»

2018 Hyundai Elantra
2018 Hyundai Elantra

The 2018 Hyundai Elantra is all elbows, as far as we’re concerned. Only a few years ago it was lost in the compact car melange, a medley of middling econobox mishaps. Now, the Elantra is a fully fledged competitor with a recent history of delivering sharp style, a spacious cabin...Read More»

2018 Lexus IS 350 F Sport
2018 Lexus IS

The 2018 Lexus IS has a tough mission, to conquest drivers who’d otherwise naturally opt-in with Mercedes, Audi, and BMW. It fights the good fight with sport trim packages, snug-fitting sheet metal and a dose of high technology. It falls shy of the benchmarks in several ways, but...Read More»
