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 First Drive
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
2018 Mazda CX-5

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 pitches itself as the sportiest compact crossover SUV around, and it shows. This five-seater’s moves are poised and athletic, at least against its competitive set. The downside? Its interior, while beautifully wrought, is tight on space for humans and their...Read More»

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

You’d be forgiven if you think an Eclipse from Mitsubishi shouldn’t look like this. Only five years after it retired the name, the automaker is hoping the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will bring back repeat buyers with short memories and short pockets. Starting at a modest...Read More»

2018 Kia Sedona

2019 Kia Sorento
2019 Kia Sorento preview

The 2019 Kia Sorento is a three-row crossover SUV with a subtly revised look and an updated drivetrain for the 2019 model year. You'll have to squint to see the differences between the 2019 Sorento and the 2018 model—or perhaps you're better of parking them next to one another...Read More»

2018 Nissan Kicks
2018 Nissan Kicks preview

The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a far more conventional crossover than its Juke predecessor. That doesn't mean it's a dullard in the looks department, though. On sale in other parts of the world for the last few years, the 2018 Kicks arrives here in the U.S. with dramatic styling not matched...Read More»

2018 Mazda MAZDA6
2018 Mazda 6 preview

A powerful engine option could finally make the 2018 Mazda 6 live up to its sports sedan billing. For 2018, the Mazda 6's headliner is a new 2.5-liter turbo-4 engine option. Rated at 250 horsepower (227 hp on regular unleaded) and 310 pound-feet of torque, the engine should motivate the...Read More»
