2020 Ford Ranger
2020 Ford Ranger

It would be a shame if the 2020 Ford Ranger were lumped into a category to include “all trucks.” The 2020 Ranger is not a diesel-swilling, lifted, train-sized hauler that hardly fits in your driveway. The Ranger is not a profane sticker with a comic character or an...Read More»

2020 Kia Soul First Drive
2020 Kia Soul

The 2020 Kia Soul hatchback scopes in its target audience by aiming at the fringes. Outre style, light-up speakers, and a low price speak to periphery shoppers who don’t mind trading style for substance. The Soul’s secret? Its hatchback practicality, fuel-efficient...Read More»

2020 Audi A8
2020 Audi A8

The 2020 Audi A8 is a high-tech masterpiece of a full-size luxury sedan. With its screen-heavy interior and silent powertrains, the A8 can come off a little cold and sterile at first, but we’ve warmed up to this spectacular sedan. We rate the 2020 A8 at 7.2 out of 10, a score...Read More»

2020 Audi A3
2020 Audi A3

The 2020 Audi A3 is in the twilight of its current design, but remains a feature-filled compact luxury sedan worth consideration. The design has held up well thanks to its combination of good performance and surprising luxury features for a modest price. A new A3 is set to arrive in the...Read More»

2020 Audi A7
2020 Audi A7

The 2020 Audi A7 strikes an enviable balance between luxury, performance, practicality, and style. Moreover, with its 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain, the A7 is even somewhat frugal. It is the automotive equivalent of a German chocolate cake that’s made out of vegetables, albeit...Read More»

2020 BMW X3
2020 BMW X3

The 2020 BMW X3 has an honesty we like. The tall-riding luxury crossover delivers on its promise of capability and versatility, and it seats up to five adults in relative comfort. It’s a 7.2 on our overall scale without factoring in performance versions. The X3 M40i and X3 M would...Read More»

2020 Lexus IS F Sport Blackline
2020 Lexus IS

The 2020 Lexus IS was once a gym rat, but its consistent routine means its predominantly European competition has bypassed this once-compelling four-door compact sedan. The allure of a decent value and the option of a strong, smooth V-6 engine don’t elevate the 2020 IS enough. We...Read More»

2020 Hyundai Palisade
2020 Hyundai Palisade

Forget the cramped wagons and box vans with church-pew seats plowing from one family vacation to the next. Family vehicles today like the 2020 Hyundai Palisade crossovers are plush rides with space for up to eight and nearly as many USB ports to charge phones for nonstop distraction...Read More»

2020 Acura ILX
2020 Acura ILX

The 2020 Acura ILX compact sedan is not a full-blown luxury car, but it brings enough niceties to the table that it makes a compelling case as an entry-level premium product worthy of consideration. For 2020, the ILX continues on more or less unchanged, less some minor feature...Read More»

2020 Subaru Outback
2020 Subaru Outback

The more things stay the same, the more things change. This year’s 2020 Subaru Outback does its best to convince shoppers that it’s the same crossover utility again on looks alone. Don’t be fooled. This year’s Outback is new with updated powertrains and...Read More»

2020 Volkswagen Passat
2020 Volkswagen Passat

Volkswagen’s big bet on its electric future has left present models like the 2020 VW Passat in limbo. This year, the mid-size sedan gets an exterior makeover and a streamlined powertrain menu. It costs less than $24,000 in base versions, which is a value for shoppers replacing...Read More»

2020 Subaru Impreza
2020 Subaru Impreza

The 2020 Subaru Impreza is as sensible as cars get, especially in practical hatchback form. Standard all-wheel drive, a good safety record, and wider standardization of collision-avoidance features this year adds to the compact car’s appeal. We rate the 2020 Impreza range at 6.3...Read More»
