2018 Nissan crash testing

The 2018 Nissan Leaf small electric hatchback looks like it will be a very safe choice for buyers. And we mean that very literally. Euro NCAP, the organization responsible for crash tests and safety ratings in Europe tested the Leaf and gave it five stars out of five for overall safety. The safety rating is …

New C-Class L Sedan

The success of the C-Class is based in part on the broad diversity of its model line-up, which has included a long-wheelbase version of the C-Class Sedan since 2014. Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC) in Beijing produces it exclusively for the Chinese market. Compared with the regular sedan, the wheelbase of the C-Class L …

2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD

Another piece of the fullsize Chevy truck puzzle is slowly being revealed. The Bowtie brand plans to officially unveil the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD sometime next year, and though that’s all very vague, pickup fans do at least have one teaser to obsess over. Chevy hints at “bolder, larger proportions” for the 2020 Silverado HD, …

2019 Mazda CX-9

Mazda’s style is unique, there’s no denying it. With the company’s most recent design refresh, the Japanese carmaker went bold; with that large grille and huge Mazda emblem, every vehicle’s front end now looks like a beak. Which brings us to the CX-9, Mazda’s three-row, seven-seater SUV. The Grand Touring I drove over a weekend …

The Ford Mustang GT

While Ford has very nearly covered the full gamut of great Mustang models of yore with remastered editions for today—and promised to resurrect the vaunted Mach 1 as some kind of electric crossover— The carmaker has found another name to bring back into play for its pony car: the GT California Special. Also known as …

Kia K 900

The South Korean car market is marked by fierce loyalty for domestic brands, bolstered by government policies restricting imported brands that have only eased during the past several years. The hometown crowd that packed the arenas to cheer the country’s Olympic speed skaters will no doubt prefer the second generation of the Kia K900, the …

2018 Subaru BRZ

I had a 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited with a six-speed manual and half a day to play on wet, windy roads hemmed by pine trees in the foothills of a massive mountain range. But Michigan was on my mind. Some cars work everywhere. Michigan’s the perfect place to find those that do: The roads are …

Audi A7

The 2019 Audi A7 is a stone-cold fox, plain and simple. From its rakish squint to its faceted tail, the new Sportback updates the design-centric theme that originated in 2009 with striking, fresh sheetmetal. But while the original A7’s big hatchback layout was a novel packaging exercise paired with a somewhat compromised rear-seat experience, the …

2018 Lexus LS 500 F

The ultimate Lexus, and the one that launched the brand, the LS was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year. It introduced an aggressive version of the famous (infamous?) “spindle” grille, a swoopy interior, and went to a completely V6-powered lineup, the fully gas-powered model featuring a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter engine. Not only that, but it …
