2019 Nissan Rogue Sport
2019 Nissan Rogue Sport

The 2019 Nissan Rogue Sport compact crossover doesn’t waste time. Among small SUVs, the Rogue Sport filled the hole left by the outgoing Juke and replaced outgoing personality (and quirks) with brute-force practicality. The Rogue Sport’s low price of less than $24,000 in...Read More»

2019 Mercedes-Benz SL Class
2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is a big, expensive two-door cruiser with a shrinking purpose in the brand’s lineup. Other models like the AMG GT are faster, while the S-Class is a more competent cruiser. Despite that, the SL-Class offers a range of engine choices and a...Read More»

2019 BMW X1
2019 BMW X1

The 2019 BMW X1 crossover is the automaker’s most affordable model for this year, and it’s the right shape. Buyers likely will be attracted to the tall ride height, spacious cargo area, BMW roundel, and relatively low price tag at $36,000, but we like the things that we...Read More»

2019 Ford Transit
2019 Ford Transit

The 2019 Ford Transit is truth in advertising. It’s a cargo or passenger van with a straightforward look—it’s about what’s inside, not outside. It earns a 4.0 on our overall scale, which is about average for commercial-oriented vans. (Read more about how we rate...Read More»

2019 Ram ProMaster City
2019 Ram ProMaster City

The 2019 Ram ProMaster City doesn’t have time for our clever analysis—there’s work to do. Normally, it’s a small cargo van (sometimes a small passenger van) destined for a rough-and-tumble life wherever it goes. With seats up front and a box in back, it...Read More»

2019 Ram ProMaster

The 2019 Ram ProMaster pares its available engine lineup down to one this year: a gas-powered V-6 that’s used throughout the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles family. Less isn’t more here. The Ram ProMaster rates 3.0 on our overall scale because it was never going to do well...Read More»

2019 Volvo S90
2019 Volvo S90

The 2019 Volvo S90 is a mid-size luxury sedan seemingly without pretense. Its dynamite shape is complemented by an interior that’s spa-chic and technology that’s impressive, but not in your face. This year, the S90 adds an Excellence trim level that may tempt six figures but...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Traverse
2019 Chevrolet Traverse

The 2019 Chevy Traverse takes a bland family wagon idea and steers it toward the men’s clothing department. Upgraded last year, inside and out, the Traverse stands pat with a couple new options for shoppers. It earns a 6.4 on our overall scale thanks to superlative space inside...Read More»

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV
2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV

The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV’s long 238-mile range has helped it outrun competitors. That may change soon. For now, we give the all-electric hatchback a 6.8 on our overall scale. Its long range and fun electric powertrain buoy sagging safety and comfort scores. (Read more about how...Read More»

2019 BMW X3
2019 BMW X3

Go long on the 2019 BMW X3. The new luxury compact crossover gains a lower cost, rear-wheel-drive entry model this year and will also serve as the jumping off point for an electrified crossover due sometime soon.
