2018 Toyota Prius
2018 Toyota Prius

The 2018 Toyota Prius quietly marches on this year—literally and figuratively. Not much has changed from last year, beyond a larger touchscreen in top-tier models and Prius Prime plug-in versions. The 2018 Prius is two years removed from a total overhaul and hitting its...Read More»

2018 Jeep Wrangler
2018 Jeep Wrangler

It can’t be easy to redesign an icon like the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. This off-roader’s timeless appeal lays as much in its look as it does in its capability and its inherent compromises. It’s beloved as much for what it is—a terrain-conquering machine—as it is...Read More»

2018 BMW X3

With the new 2018 X3, BMW may have its best vehicle–the one that best matches lofty expectations with nifty execution. Other BMWs like the M2 make specific compromises to please niche audiences. With the X3, at least in M40i trim, we can’t find many compromises BMW has had...Read More»

2018 Subaru WRX

Newly promoted young professionals with money to burn, listen up: The 2018 Subaru WRX is a new-car pick that you won’t have to lie about to your parents. That’s because it still sports standard all-wheel drive, four doors, and a reasonable trunk. Most versions look like...Read More»

2018 Chevrolet Spark
2018 Chevrolet Spark

The 2018 Chevrolet Spark hatchback is the smallest Chevy on the North American market, and it’s become something of a forgotten model. The five-door minicar is a family car in developing countries, but in the States, its fuel efficiency and easy parking lack appeal in an age of...Read More»

2018 Ford Expedition
2018 Ford Expedition

The 2018 Ford Expedition is one of the best SUVs on the road. Ford spent the better part of a decade ignoring the profit-making machine, the new one had better be. Ford had a tremendous amount of time to perfect the latest Expedition, and clearly didn’t waste it. The 2018 Ford...Read More»

2019 Volvo XC40

Hope springs eternal for Volvo. The 2019 Volvo XC40 compact crossover is unapologetically cast toward shoppers who can’t remember the first season of “The Simpsons.” It pioneers a new way to pay for a car, and the 2019 XC40 sports many features that may impress younger...Read More»

2018 Kia Forte
2018 Kia Forte

The 2018 Kia Forte sedan and hatchback rate well for their roomy interior and good fuel economy. They don’t exist in a vacuum, however, and the Honda Civic has sucked a lot of the oxygen out of the economy-car room. The Forte nevertheless gives compact-car shoppers a good choice...Read More»

2018 Alfa Romeo 4C
2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

The 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C, offered as a coupe or semi-convertible called Spider, is a scaled-down supercar in more ways than one. First, it is simply smaller than Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Second, in price, it comes in way below those cars. And third, it undercuts them in weight, thanks...Read More»

2018 Lincoln Continental
2018 Lincoln Continental

The 2018 Lincoln Continental marks the return of the past. Yes, the style’s a throwback—and a good one—but the Continental also became the first Lincoln to drop a three-letter name (“MKS”) and return to a badge from the archives. The Continental now means...Read More»

2018 Mazda CX-5
