2019 Subaru WRX
2019 Subaru WRX

The 2019 Subaru WRX doesn’t brag about its rally lineage, at least until its turbos spool up and all four wheels scrabble for traction on a winding dirt road. Try doing that in a BMW M2. What the 2019 WRX does well is go fast regardless of terrain while carrying four passengers in...Read More»

2019 Subaru Ascent
2019 Subaru Ascent

Don’t call the 2019 Subaru Ascent just an Outback with a dad bod. The three-row crossover is the largest vehicle ever produced by Subaru and it is sold only in North America. The big Subaru costs about $33,000 to start, and the Ascent will appeal to families unfazed by sheer...Read More»

2019 Subaru Legacy
2019 Subaru Legacy

It’s hard to be an underdog in an unappreciated market. Just ask the 2019 Subaru Legacy, the mid-size sedan that does almost everything right yet barely registers a spot on most shoppers’ lists. The 2019 Legacy is worth a lengthy look, we say, and it rightfully earns its 6.3...Read More»

2019 Subaru BRZ
2019 Subaru BRZ

Some of the best prizefighters were never heavyweights. See Sugar Ray Robinson for proof. The 2019 Subaru BRZ is just as sweet*. The small sport coupe returns this year, minus a big wing but still with the same winning formula that takes on rivals twice its cost. We give the coupe a 5.5...Read More»

2019 Subaru Outback
2019 Subaru Outback

The 2019 Subaru Outback splits the difference between passenger car and crossover SUV and it does so exceptionally well. With the Outback, Subaru has created a vehicle that meets the needs of most drivers while neglecting few. Though the 2019 Outback is begging to sprout some gray...Read More»

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid  -  First Drive, Santa Barbara CA, Nov. 2019
2019 Subaru Crosstrek

Think of the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek as a pair of trail running shoes. This compact crossover SUV ties rugged styling with as much capability as most explorers are likely to need. Following a redesign last year, the 2019 Crosstrek gets more widely available advanced safety tech such as...Read More»

2019 Cadillac CTS-V
2019 Cadillac CTS-V

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is a swan song for one of the greatest American performance cars ever. With a mountain of power, sharp sport sedan handling, and plenty of refinement, this is a bona-fide competitor to the best the Germans have to offer, and for that it should warrant a score...Read More»

2019 Kia Sorento
2019 Kia Sorento

Think of the 2019 Kia Sorento as the shortstop of crossover SUVs. This three-row crossover does just about everything well, and some things even better for 2019 thanks to some tweaks to its suspension and steering. It’s roomy, comes standard with three rows of seats, offers a...Read More»

2019 Kia Soul
2019 Kia Soul

The 2019 Kia Soul cruises into the latest model year with all its charm intact, with its sole glaring fault still on the order sheet. The 2019 Soul, Soul Plus, and Soul Exclaim continue to dole out impeccably youthful style, decent economy-car bona fides, and excellent interior space...Read More»

2019 Kia Sportage
2019 Kia Sportage

The 2019 Kia Sportage may lack some of the spunky visual appeal of the related Kia Soul hatchback, but it’s just as well. It sells and performs well based on its crossover-SUV credentials, not on an on-point shape. The Sportage does more than the Soul with its available turbo-4...Read More»

2019 Kia Rio
2019 Kia Rio

The 2019 Kia Rio proves that simple is better when it comes to compact cars. This year, choosing a 2019 Rio is even simpler: Kia trimmed the Rio lineup in half, meaning color is the only thing most shoppers will need to pick. The Rio earns 5.2 out of 10 on our scale for its bucks-up...Read More»

2019 Kia Niro
2019 Kia Niro

The 2019 Kia Niro is efficiency without pretense. Kind of like an office stapler, but with a better stereo, perhaps. As Kia’s dedicated electrified model, no version of the Niro is sold without a hybrid battery. (A Niro with a much bigger battery and no gasoline engine is due...Read More»
