2019 Honda Fit
2019 Honda Fit

The 2019 Honda Fit is affordable transportation for first-time new-car buyers that offers flexible seating, good gas mileage, a sporty ride and good looks for less than $20,000—optional extras such as active safety features included. With that in mind, we’ve rated the 2019...Read More»

2019 Honda Ridgeline
2019 Honda Ridgeline

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck exists under the bell curve. It's meant for typical uses rather than edge-case scenarios: home improvement store runs, small toy hauling, and daily detail. It's built on a crossover platform, does all the “truck stuff” well enough for...Read More»

2019 Honda Insight
2019 Honda Insight

The new 2019 Honda Insight hybrdi sedan takes its looks from the Accord and rides atop a frame borrowed from the Civic. None of that sounds like a bad thing to us. The Insight earns a 6.8 overall for now. Safety isn’t yet figured into that score, and we expect that number will...Read More»

2019 Acura MDX A-Spec
2019 Acura MDX

The 2019 Acura MDX full-size crossover hit the gym this year. It was already a lean performer as far as family vehicles go, but now with a sportier A-Spec trim level, it's gone Whole30. We’re OK with that, because the MDX is still a comfortable, safe, and fairly fuel-efficient...Read More»

2019 Acura RDX Advance
2019 Acura RDX

Small things make a big difference. Just a year removed from withering on the automaker's vine, the new 2019 Acura RDX has a new face, new turbo power, good looks, available all-wheel drive, and an improved interior. In base, Technology, A-Spec, and Advance trim, the 2019 Acura RDX has...Read More»

2019 Acura TLX
2019 Acura TLX

Reservation isn't just for dinner. The 2019 Acura TLX heaps on luxury features without the swagger of its rivals, but offers a lower price tag that may sway more buyers looking for understated luxury. In 2019, the Acura TLX grabs a 6.5 on our scale thanks to its comfortable ride and...Read More»

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC
2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC preview

The all-electric 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC crossover skips past anticipation for the automaker's biggest push into zero-emissions vehicles and heads straight into integration. Kind of. The EQC is due to arrive in 2020, nearly two years behind its chief competitors. The EQC eschews a...Read More»

2019 Fiat 500L
2019 Fiat 500L

Sometimes affordable transportation is just that. What verve the 2019 Fiat 500L had when it was new has withered and the five-door hatchback that’s left is a family hauler with a bright interior and practical shape. Our overall rating of 4.2 reflects that. It’s not...Read More»

2019 Jeep Wrangler
2019 Jeep Wrangler

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is refreshingly honest. Its throwback underpinnings may belie the newly updated and tech-heavy interior, but the Wrangler’s rugged looks cut checks its sturdy body will cash. We give the Wrangler a 5.2 overall because capability requires compromise...Read More»

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is an automotive moment in time: a family hauler that can crawl through a blizzard, blitz a racetrack, tow a boat—or all three. It’s an excellent choice for a family hauler, performance SUV, off-road champ, or anything in the middle. Our overall...Read More»

2019 Jeep Compass
2019 Jeep Compass

The 2019 Jeep Compass splits hairs to find its narrow niche among compact crossover SUVs. Bigger than a Renegade but smaller than a Cherokee, the Compass steers toward comfort and usability than scrambling up a mountainside. Our rating of 5.0 reflects the good features and relatively...Read More»

2019 Kia Forte
2019 Kia Forte

The 2019 Kia Forte compact sedan boasts scaled-down Stinger looks, but they’re not backed up by sporty car performance. We rate the redesigned Forte at 6.0 out of 10 points on account of its stylish bod, its good fuel economy, and its strong standard equipment level. (Read more...Read More»
