2020 Jeep Gladiator vs. 2020 Ford Ranger: Compare Trucks

2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited
Review update: 2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited is the best mid-size sedan

The redesigned 2020 Hyundai Sonata is the best mid-size sedan on the road. As someone who avoids superlatives and exaggeration (like the plague), I can hardly believe it myself.

2020 Hyundai Venue (Australian spec)
First drive: The 2020 Hyundai Venue sets a small but splashy stage

I struggle with sentience while a hotel clerk tells me there are four Australian accents: university, city, Western Australia, and everywhere else. None of them make sense at 9 a.m., not after a 24-hour ride over the ocean for a first drive in the 2020 Hyundai Venue. Hyundai chose Australia’s...Read More»

2020 Audi A4 Allroad
Refreshed 2020 Audi A4 returns to the U.S. with more content for less money

2020 Subaru Ascent
2020 Subaru Ascent review update: 3-row SUV climbs to safety

The 2020 Subaru Ascent is a three-row crossover SUV with standard all-wheel drive and standard active safety features. There is nothing remarkable about it. It doesn’t have the rugged good looks of the Kia Telluride, or the high-performance variants of so many “bromobiles,” or the...Read More»

2020 Nissan Leaf
2020 Nissan Leaf revealed: Electric car offers more tech and better safety features for less money

When it arrived nearly a decade ago, the Nissan Leaf electric hatchback had a bulbous shape, spartan interior, and 73 miles of range.

2020 Chrysler Pacifica
Chrysler Pacifica: Best Minivan To Buy 2020

The Chrysler Pacifica minivan does something better than every other vehicle on the planet, and we'll exchange words with you over that. Crossover SUVs can't match its flexibility.

Ford touts the sky-high fuel economy of its 2020 Escape Hybrid and compares it directly with vaunted names from Toyota—but just how good is it? We've already told you that we prefer the Hybrid head and shoulders above other 2020 Escape crossovers. What we haven't seen are numbers like the...Read More»

2020 Nissan Altima
Review update: The 2020 Nissan Altima packs value

The mid-size sedan segment isn’t where one usually looks for excitement, but that’s changed quickly. Toyota came out swinging with an aggressively styled Camry lineup while the Honda Accord’s European flair should make a consumer pause on their way to lease a BMW 3-Series...Read More»

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid: Best Car To Buy 2020 Nominee

The Toyota RAV4 is the best-selling non-truck in America due to its practicality, reliability, AWD capability, and easy-to-use if not outdated technology.

2020 Toyota Highlander vs. Kia Telluride: Compare Crossover SUVs

The 2020 Toyota Highlander and the 2020 Kia Telluride pony up the family-carrying virtues of a good old-fashioned station wagon, even if we pronounce it “crossover SUV.” One’s built in Indiana, the other’s built in Georgia—but which one’s built for the win? At a...Read More»
