2018 Volvo XC60
2018 Volvo XC60

Volvo builds sublime sedans and best-bar-none wagons. Though it resisted crossover SUVs for a long time, it now makes some true knockouts, like the heavily awarded XC90. This year, it’s replacing its best-selling vehicle by scaling down the XC90 to two-row, five-seat dimensions...Read More»

2018 Volvo V60

The 2018 Volvo V60 luxury compact wagon is the last of its kind. Thankfully, there's more where that came from. This year is the final year of the current run, a new V60 lands next year. We don't mind. The 2018 V60 is still stylish and safe, its only blemishes are a dated infotainment...Read More»

2018 Volvo XC90

The 2018 Volvo XC90 luxury crossover SUV can rightly be credited for vaulting the automaker back into the American mainstream. With seating for up to seven in beautifully rendered confines, the XC90 can even cost less than most of its competitors. It earns a good 7.2 overall score on...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Second chances don’t come easily, but not much about Volkswagen has been painless recently. The 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan is a big compact crossover SUV—or a small mid-sizer, perhaps—climbing the comeback trail for the automaker. Like the full-size Atlas, the Tiguan aims...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Golf R
2018 Volkswagen Golf

The 2018 Volkswagen Golf is a perennial favorite—and something of an underdog—among compact cars. It's offered as a four-door hatchback, a wagon with either a standard or slightly raised suspension, and a pair of sporty "hot hatches." With the 2018 Golf, Volkswagen has...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Atlas
2018 Volkswagen Atlas

The 2018 Volkswagen Atlas is a three-row crossover that couldn't come soon enough for the automaker. It's Available in S, SE, and SEL trim levels, the Atlas gets everything right on paper, but its execution leaves a little to be desired. In our testing, it's a 6.5 out of 10, which puts...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Jetta
2018 Volkswagen Jetta

The 2018 Volkswagen Jetta is a smaller sedan compared to the mid-size Passat, but they both follow the same template: more substance than style. The Jetta is roomy and sensible, with a relatively frugal base powertrain and low price. A new Jetta is on the way for 2019. We’ve rated...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Beetle
2018 Volkswagen Beetle

The 2018 Volkswagen Beetle still has a couple punches left. This year, the Beetle follows that ethos with a simplified powertrain lineup and a special edition that couldn’t be named after the Beach Boys, so they call it “Coast.” This Beetle is getting on in its years...Read More»

2018 Volkswagen Passat
2018 Volkswagen Passat

The 2018 Volkswagen Passat mid-size sedan prioritizes practicality over personality. The spacious sedan is comfortable and well-equipped—especially with safety tech—but it's not exactly a head-turner. We’ve rated the 2018 Passat at 6.5 out of 10 points. (Read more...Read More»

2019 Honda Odyssey
2019 Honda Odyssey

The 2019 Honda Odyssey is the brand’s latest in its line of best-selling minivans and it sports more technology and gadgetry than a Radio Shack—if that were still a thing. Starting at just over $31,000, the 2019 Odyssey is a repeat of the successful 2018 model. That’s...Read More»
