Audi Bringing Sq7

While Audi believes there’s hope for the sedan, it knows Americans are more interested in SUVs and crossovers. It will consequently add the SQ7 and the SQ8 to its range of high-riding models in the coming months. Both nameplates are already part of the company’s portfolio in Europe, where they’re powered by a mighty, 4.0-liter …

Audi E-Tron GT

After a year of turning Audi’s Q3, Q3 Sportback, Q5, and Q8 crossovers into bawdy cannonballers, the Ingolstadt automaker’s go-fast RS department has embarked on plug-in hybrid and electric programs.

Mazda MX-30

Mazda’s first production-bound electric car, the MX-30, relies on a 35.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack for power.

2020 Mazda CX-30

The 2020 Mazda CX-30 has its work cut out for it. The small crossover will have to pick up the slack of the Mazda3 sedan and hatchback, which have seen sales dip more than 20 percent through October. In addition to positioning the CX-30 as one of its volume models, Mazda also hopes it can …

2020 Toyota Avalon

The 2020 Toyota Avalon isn’t the sleepy sedan you may think it is, and that’s a good thing. Despite its long reputation as a nap-worthy vehicle, the styling isn’t exactly sleep-inducing anymore and the driving experience is far more involving. Even if it had more competitors, though, we’re confident that the well-rounded Avalon would still …

Infiniti QX60 SUV

The Infiniti QX60 is the brand’s most popular model. The three-row SUV is a favorite family hauler thanks to its good-looking design and spacious interior.
