2017 Nissan Pathfinder
2017 Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder mid-size people mover gets a modest refresh for 2017 after its 2014 redesign. Changes to this seven-passenger crossover SUV include new front and rear fascias that create a more truck-like look, engine improvements, a new infotainment system, and new active safety...Read More»

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great family vehicle—just one that's also potentially ready to go off-road, tow a trailer or, on occasion, do things that are more workhorse-like than you'd attempt in most other typical family crossovers. With the Grand Cherokee, Jeep offers Laredo...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen CC
2017 Volkswagen CC

The 2017 Volkswagen CC is an aging but still handsome "four-door coupe," meaning a four-door sedan with a lower and sleeker roofline than VW's squarer and more upright Passat (which sells in much higher numbers). It's actually a mechanical cousin to the last-generation VW Passat, the...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Golf
2017 Volkswagen Golf

The 2017 Volkswagen Golf is a bar set for other compact cars in its class. It now spans a model line that includes two- and four-door hatchbacks, sporty hatchbacks, and a wagon with available all-wheel drive, which is new for this year. We give the new Golf a score of 6.5. Pedestrian...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Tiguan
2017 Volkswagen Tiguan

The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan is the smaller of two SUVs now in the VW lineup, below the large and pricey Touareg. It's small compared to the other compact crossovers it competes with, and the conservative design has aged well. But it's pricey, falls down on safety, and lacks numerous...Read More»

2017 Volkswagen Touareg
2017 Volkswagen Touareg

The 2017 Volkswagen Touareg is a five-seat crossover SUV with a couple of problems. The first is existential: it's really a rival for the Mercedes GLE and BMW X5 in price, but it's awkwardly pitched now as a half-step down from those vehicles, a half-step up from more pedestrian...Read More»

2017 Volvo S60
2017 Volvo S60

The 2017 Volvo S60 sedan isn't completely new from the automaker, but it's still relatively significant. It's the first year the Swedish automaker has offered all 4-cylinder engines in all of its cars and SUVs, and it's the first year that a base S60 model can be fitted with all-wheel...Read More»

2017 Volvo S90 T6 AWD Inscription
2017 Volvo S90

The 2017 Volvo S90 sedan arrives to replace the S80 in the Swedish automaker’s lineup. Though it’s more than that; Volvo is starting over, with the S90 a fully reconceived flagship sedan—built on a new platform, with new engines under the hood, a new design concept...Read More»

2017 Volvo XC60
2017 Volvo XC60

The 2017 Volvo XC60 is the brand's second best-selling model behind the hugely popular XC90, and it's no surprise why. The compact crossover is packed full with standard gear, and is comfortable for four—oh, and it's still one of the safest crossovers on the planet. The XC60...Read More»

2017 Nissan Murano
2017 Nissan Murano

The 2017 Nissan Murano is a five-seat crossover that sort of defies convention. Instead of following its rivals by trying to appeal to growing families or those intent on at least looking the off-road part, the Murano is plush and comfortable, something of a more palatable luxury...Read More»

2017 Nissan Sentra Nismo
2017 Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra doesn't seek out the limelight like some of its economy-car rivals. Low on star quality, it keenly avoids delivering an eye-popping driving experience. It's happy just to run in the background, more like an application than transportation. So yes, if you really need to...Read More»

2017 Kia Niro
2017 Kia Niro

The 2017 Kia Niro breaks new ground as the first dedicated hybrid crossover SUV—which is to say, there's no gasoline-only Niro. It enters the world's limited roster of dedicated hybrids, headed by the Toyota Prius, now in its fourth generation. Among dedicated hybrids, the Niro is...Read More»
