2019 Mazda CX-9

2019 Mazda CX-5

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 pits practical against pretty. Other crossover SUVs deliver bigger back seats and more cargo hold. But they don’t look as good, and none handle as well. The CX-5 could learn something from its rivals in powertrain tenor and in standard features, but we think...Read More»

2019 Lexus IS

The 2019 Lexus IS takes on compact sports sedans from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi. Angular styling themes, available sport trim packages, and a strong V-6 option pronounce the 2019 IS sedan’s intentions, but the IS ultimately falls short of benchmarks set by its rivals due to its...Read More»
