2021 Subaru Outback
2021 Subaru Outback

Change may have swept over other crossover SUVs in the form of hybrid powertrains or cutting-edge looks, but the 2021 Subaru Outback is content to stay the same. Why not? It’s a winning formula of wagon room, flat-4 power, and an enviable reputation for safety and durability. With...Read More»

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250
2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class offers a happy compromise. The smallest crossover SUV in the Mercedes lineup is also the most affordable at $37,280. It may not be the best Benz, or even the Benz rolling in your dreams, but well-equipped and flush with options, the GLA250 satisfies many...Read More»

2021 Toyota Corolla Apex Edition
2021 Toyota Corolla

The 2021 Toyota Corolla buffs the automaker’s small-car credentials in some obvious ways, and some subtler ones, too. An absurdly good value especially in hybrid trim, the 2021 Corolla’s a resale monolith—and hasn’t lost those attributes even as it’s grown...Read More»

2021 Dodge Charger
2021 Dodge Charger

We’re not sure how the Dodge Charger gets stronger as it gets older. Maybe ask The Rock? For 2021, the Charger gets an asphalt melting 797-horsepower variant that’s as irresponsible as it is powerful. That’s not a judgement on our part, just unbridled peak-power on...Read More»

2021 Toyota Camry
2021 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry once defined the family-sedan ethos: boring to see, dull to drive, unassuming to a fault. Now the Camry’s the tattooed mom or dad with a streak of pink hair—still angling for that promotion to manager, yes, but it’s trying hard to be cool. It’s...Read More»

2021 Volkswagen Jetta
2021 Volkswagen Jetta

Compact cars like the 2021 Volkswagen Jetta maximize value in a minimal footprint. It’s a thankless task, but one that needs to get done, nonetheless. Like dusting bookshelves, perhaps. This year, the 2021 Jetta is largely the same as the year before it. No surprises; it’s a...Read More»

2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer
2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer

Remakes make for new takes, from “Jurassic Park” to jean shorts to the Chevy Trailblazer. That name might conjure up images of a truck-based SUV boxing out a Ford Bronco or Mitsubishi Montero but those days have gone the way of Blockbuster Video and Livestrong wristbands...Read More»

2021 Honda Civic
2021 Honda Civic

The Coupe is gone, Si is on hiatus—but the 2021 Honda Civic still lures us with its winning formula of fuel economy, crash safety, and driving verve. Sold in LX, Sport, EX, Touring, and Type R editions, we give the 2021 Civic a TCC Rating of 6.7 out of 10. (Read more about how we...Read More»

2021 Dodge Challenger
2021 Dodge Challenger

The 2021 Dodge Challenger two-door coupe is in a league of its own—the old-timer’s one—but still swings a big bat. That’s because crosstown rivals from General Motors and Ford have evolved in the 13 model years that Dodge has given us mostly the same Challenger...Read More»

2021 Acura RDX
2021 Acura RDX

With edgy looks, strong turbo-4 power, and high-tech features, the 2021 Acura RDX scores highly in the TCC Ratings multiverse. Sold in base, Technology, A-Spec, and Advance trims—and up against vehicles like the Benz GLC and Audi Q5—we score it a 6.7 out of 10. (Read more...Read More»

2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime
2021 Toyota RAV4

The 2021 Toyota RAV4 compact crossover SUV still has a few tricks up its sleeve. It adds a plug-in hybrid this year, with a twist: the 2021 RAV4 Prime has the quickest acceleration of the lineup. For 2021 the RAV4 Hybrid can be ordered as an XLE Premium, too. The 2021 RAV4 gets a 6.4...Read More»

2021 Honda Passport
2021 Honda Passport

The 2021 Honda Passport punches a ticket for drivers who think the three-row Pilot’s for big families and the smaller CR-V’s for couch potatoes. With the Passport, Honda trims the Pilot’s fat and delivers a five-seat, two-row crossover SUV that’s not quite...Read More»
