2019 Chevy Volt

Electric cars operating in serene silence is one of their biggest upsides. It also happens to be a problem, one Chevrolet thinks it has the answer for with the 2019 Volt. The reduced sound of electric motors whirring instead of a gasoline engine banging away means that they’re less noticeable by sound on the road. …

2019 Mercedes-Benz A

Mercedes-Benz has repeatedly had to relearn a simple lesson: An air of European sophistication doesn’t make a car sold overseas play in America. The circa 2001 C-Class hatchback was a poor fit, but the GLA and CLA have since then come closer to the right formula for both sides of the Atlantic. The new A-Class, …

2020 Bmw 8

One of our spy photographers caught the upcoming 2020 BMW 8 Series out testing with nearly no camouflage covering it. The resulting photos give us our best look yet at the flagship convertible. While it does pretty much look like an 8 Series coupe with a retractable roof, there are a couple of very subtle …

2019 Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 is one of the best-looking crossovers in this class. Inside and out, it exudes a premium feel that’s also slightly quirky. From the tiny Swedish flags fluttering from the seats to the Thor’s Hammer headlights, Volvo puts a lot of attention to detail in the design, and it’s rewarding for customers. The …

2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo

Hyundai finally seems to be figuring out driving dynamics. You know, suspensions that don’t become flummoxed after hitting a mid-corner heave. Steering that does more than simply exist. A general driving experience that you may actually remember. Indeed, I’m going to remember the 2019 Hyundai Veloster Turbo, the latest Hyundai group car to demonstrate newfound …

2020 Kia Telluride

About two and a half years after the concept’s debut in Detroit, the (mostly) production 2020 Kia Telluride has been revealed in New York for Fashion Week. The odd location for the reveal has to do with a partnership with fashion designer Brandon Maxwell who got Kia to donate to his childhood school district in …

2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC

Mercedes-Benz introduced the EQ brand at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, announcing that there would be a line of electric vehicles in the coming years that would appear under this new brand. Now we know that the first of these vehicles will be arriving in 2020, and it is the all-new Mercedes-Benz EQC crossover SUV. …

2018 Jeep Wrangler

Last week I hopped off the Oklahoma panhandle into Grenville, New Mexico. After a tight right-left on Grenville’s Lake Road, the tarmac fell away into immense, scrub-filled valleys rimmed by rock spires and elevated mesas. Pushing into Colorado from the southeast, elevation and high-plains beauty come quickly. It’s like driving through the imaginary Arcadias on …

2019 BMW Z4

Take a look at BMW’s Z series, which stretches all the way back to 1989 with the Z1, and you’ll see a few common design themes across the entire lineup. But you’ll see a more obvious design lineage when you look at just the Z3 and last two Z4s. The 2019 BMW Z4 diverges slightly …

2019 Ford Gt

In 1968, a Ford GT40 wearing the iconic Gulf Oil livery and fielded by JW Automotive Engineering won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. A year later, the same car — chassis number 1075 — won again, making it one of only a few vehicles to win the prestigious endurance race more than once. For …
