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 …

2019 BMW 330i

E21. E30. E36. E46. E90. F30. To the most people, it’s nothing but alphanumeric gibberish. Read them off to my mother and she would probably stand up and yell, “Bingo!” But car guys, real car guys, know these numbers well –- the six generations of the legendary BMW 3 Series. And the seventh, chassis code …

Tesla

Call me crazy, but I’d take this over a Model X any day of the week… and not just because these rear doors will never need maintenance. Volvo’s styling has been given high praise ever since it moved to its latest iteration, and it appears a man who helped capture that magic might be giving …

Toyota Tacoma TRD

For years, the Toyota Tacoma ruled the midsize truck roost. Sure, the Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon and Nissan Frontier had some success, but they were mostly bit players. The Taco was king in both performance and sales figures. That’s not the case anymore. Since Chevy introduced the second-gen Colorado and variants like the Colorado ZR2, …

2019 Mercedes A220 Sedan

A little over 35 years ago, Mercedes-Benz debuted a new model, the 190. It might have been the company’s smallest, cheapest car, but it was one of the most advanced, too. The 190 since morphed into the C-Class, which is bigger and more luxurious than ever, creating room for a new entry-level sedan. Meet the …
