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 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.

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.

On Thursday, February 7th, 2019
2020 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S Gotta hand it to AMG. Though the vast majority of the carmaker’s clientele are likelier to eat glass than track their high-powered sedans, we sampled the 2019 AMG GT sedan at the epic 3.4-mile Circuit of the Americas course.
