2020 Subaru Legacy

Subaru has fully redesigned the Legacy sedan, but you’d never know it. The model sits on a new platform and features new technologies, but the exterior design changes are pretty minimal. That’s not surprising given Subaru’s conservative attitude toward vehicle styling. The question is: Is the subtle approach effective or not? Let’s take a closer look …

2020 BMW X3 M

We knew these two performance crossovers were coming, and here they are. Even at first glance, the BMW X3 M and X4 M are very clearly differentiated from their sister models, the regular X3 and X4. Unique front and rear bumpers pull them down visually, their massive air intakes are functional, and the non-functional outlet …

2020 Chevrolet Silverado

For whatever reason, the powers that be at GM allowed the fancy-pants GMC brand to launch its Sierra version of the new heavy-duty pickups a few weeks ahead of the volume-selling 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD, but didn’t allow the “Professional Grade” folks to spill all the power, torque, payload, and towing beans. Chevy has just …

Porsche Taycan EV

We learned late last year that Porsche would increase production of the Taycan to meet higher-than-expected demand for the electric vehicle that has yet to go on sale.

IIHS Top Safety Pick+

Double the amount of cars from last year are IIHS Top Safety Pick+ recipients. The number went from 15 for 2018 up to 30 for 2019 model year vehicles. This huge jump is even more significant, because the IIHS made its testing requirements harder to meet. There were 17 more models that just missed the …

2019 Porsche Macan

It may be hard to believe, but the Porsche Macan was released nearly five years ago. That’s forever in car years, and Porsche finally decided that the time had come for a “mid-cycle” refresh: a raft of small improvements that should keep the Macan fresh until the next major redesign comes around. To test that …
