2019 Toyota Avalon
2019 Toyota Avalon

The 2019 Toyota Avalon trims its sails and heads for more adventurous waters this year. The full-size sedan has sportier looks now, and most of the hardware to match. It’s longer and lower than the outgoing version, and its superlative interior space hasn’t changed. A...Read More»

2019 Jaguar F-Type
2019 Jaguar F-Type

The 2019 Jaguar F-Type defines beauty without beastliness. This shapely two-door, available as a coupe or as a convertible, has an engine and a transmission for nearly everyone and it splits the line between sports car and touring coupe. We rate the F-Type lineup at 7.0 out of 10 points...Read More»

2019 Audi A7
2019 Audi A7 preview

The 2019 Audi A7 arrives in showrooms this fall with reworked styling and a heaping dose of new technology. It's the second generation for the fastback (a hatchback, technically speaking), and it precedes the arrival of a new A6 sedan that shares its mechanicals by a few months. Audi...Read More»

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake
2018 Jaguar XF

The 2018 Jaguar XF goes long for a winning play this model year. The new Sportbrake wagon elegantly underscores how far the British brand’s come since 2009, when the mid-size sedan joined its range. Jaguar won’t sell many XF Sportbrake wagons, true. But in its third year on...Read More»

2019 Volkswagen Jetta
2019 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2019 Volkswagen Jetta hardly lacks for assets. The compact sedan is roomy, comfortable, well-made, and a good value. But the 2019 Jetta doesn’t bond with its driver in the way we’ve come to expect from German-branded small cars, including the Jetta’s VW Golf...Read More»

2018 BMW M5
2018 BMW M5

The 2018 BMW M5 sedan makes up for some of the sins of the previous generation while it commits a few of its own. The new F90-generation M5 turns up the fun factor versus the outgoing F10 and provides more feedback, but it’s still heavy and it no longer offers a manual...Read More»

2019 Kia Optima
2019 Kia Optima Preview

It’s not easy to stand out from the crowd, but the 2019 Kia Optima makes its mark among mid-size sedans with cut-above styling and a raft of newly standard safety gear not found on many of its rivals. The 2019 Optima’s nip-and-tuck styling update isn’t what will lure...Read More»

2018 BMW i3s
2018 BMW i3

The BMW i3 is an oddball. With carbon-fiber-intensive construction and an electric motor, it is the most environmentally forward-thinking car to come from BMW. Its design is polarizing, and it’s even unique among electric cars, as it offers an engine as an optional range extender...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Cruze
2019 Chevrolet Cruze

The 2019 Chevrolet Cruze compact car finally gets with the times. This year, the Cruze sedan and hatchback sport revised styling, updated technology, and a raft of collision-avoidance gear it lacked last year. The 2019 Cruze, available in L, LS, LT, and Premier trim levels, can be had...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Malibu
2019 Chevrolet Malibu preview

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu has an updated look outside, but it’s what’s underneath that counts. For 2019, most versions of the Malibu gain a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) and all variants feature an updated infotainment system. The 2019 Malibu will go on sale...Read More»

2018 Lexus RX 350L
2018 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX has been standard-issue equipment in mid- to upper-middle class neighborhoods. It's surprising that it wasn't sold with an HOA and membership dues. Until now. Two years ago, Lexus struck out of the tract-home mold and wants to attract defectors who've left for sport-tuned...Read More»

2019 Acura RDX, 2018 New York auto show
2019 Acura RDX preview

The 2019 Acura RDX just might have what it takes to become the best vehicle in the Acura showroom, aside from the swoopy NSX. With chiseled lines, turbocharged power, available all-wheel drive with torque vectoring, and a high-tech yet luxurious interior, the compact crossover RDX is a...Read More»
