2018 Kia Stinger GT Long-Term Review

On Sunday, March 24th, 2019
2018 Kia Stinger GT A few months back, I wrote about the hatch in our long-term 2018 Kia Stinger GT. The sizable cargo area is one of our favorite things about the sportback. It’s big enough to fit a full set of wheels and tires or the 55-inch TV I bought around Christmas. While those may showcase the car’s ...

2019 Chevrolet Blazer Review And Buying Guide

On Wednesday, March 20th, 2019
2019 Chevrolet Blazer In segment mostly filled with anonymous kid haulers, the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer stands apart with eye-catching styling inspired by the Camaro.

On Thursday, March 14th, 2019
2019 Lexus UX The 2019 Lexus UX is the smallest and cheapest Lexus you can buy, and the UX 250h hybrid model just barely misses out being the most fuel efficient.

2019 Lamborghini Urus Track Drive Review

On Wednesday, March 13th, 2019
2019 Lamborghini Urus The Lamborghini Urus is a strange beast. It’s generally shaped like a modern Lamborghini, a thick wedge with knife-edged angles, but its four-door form brings a practicality that no previous Lamborghini could match. Not even the iconic LM002, a thinly veneered military vehicle more similar to the classic Steyr-Daimler-Puch Geländewagen than the Urus, which is ...

2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet First Drive Review

On Monday, March 11th, 2019
2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet When it comes to numbers on the new 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet, how does 12 seconds grab you? No, not the quarter mile (which the S model makes in 11.9 seconds), but the time it takes the convertible to shed its fabric top. The new 911 is beginning its long rollout of model variants. In ...

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus First Drive Review

On Tuesday, February 26th, 2019
2019 Nissan Leaf Plus The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus is one of those “ask and you shall receive” situations. The company has lagged behind in the range discussion for too long — the redesigned 2018 Leaf has only a 150-mile range, after all. This is plenty for some people, but the competition offers more. Nissan heard the cries, and ...
