2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI

The 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI, like its forerunners, promises to be all things to all people. It’s a quiet and comfortable commuter one day and a corner carving riot the next. It does both of those things without compromising either too much. It’s part of the reason that it has remained as popular as it …

Mazda6

Though June overall wasn’t a terrible month for automaker sales, at least for the most part, it was pretty hideous for midsize family sedans. Basically every single model in the segment saw declining numbers including the Subaru Legacy, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Volkswagen Passat, and even perennial volume sellers such as the Honda Accord and …

2019 BMW X4

Few things drain your energy like the heat and humidity on a sunny spring day in the South, even when the A/C is on full blast. There’s an intenseness to the warmth that hits you like a wave the moment you step outside. The air feels thick and wet and heavy. Heat waves radiate from …

2019 Nissan 370Z

In the classic-car world, Z-cars are red hot. Interest is high, and there has been a surge in values over the last 10 years, as baby boomers and Gen-Xers, fueled by their inner high-schooler, are paying up for top-quality, well-preserved examples. First-generation Datsun 240Zs, sold from 1970 to 1973, and twin-turbo Nissan 300ZX models from …

2019 Chevy Blazer

After months of rumors, speculation and waiting, we finally have our first look at the new 2019 Chevy Blazer. The Blazer’s sharp lines are a surprising departure from other more conservative Chevy models, drawing a lot of influence from the refreshed 2019 Camaro. The new two-row model will slot below the Chevy Equinox and larger …

Suzuki Ignis

Suzuki has yet to come back to the United States, which is a shame knowing how its new Jimny looks like it’ll be the best compact off-roader we’ve seen in years. But the brand introduced its very well-received new retro design language more than three years ago, with a 4WD concept car called the Suzuki …

The Aston Martin

Aston Martin’s Rapide has been around for awhile. The first model, revealed in 2009, was basically a stretched DB9 with two more doors. Nearly a decade later, the formula hasn’t changed much. The new Rapide AMR is a production version of the concept first shown at Geneva, and the good news is, it’s still packing …

Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce announced today that Giles Taylor, its design chief since 2012, has left the company “to pursue alternative business interests.” His departure comes less than a month after the launch of the Cullinan, the first SUV from Rolls-Royce, and less than a year after the arrival of the new Phantom. Taylor’s successor will be announced …

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz has finally launched its subscription service in Nashville and Philadelphia, and with it comes a slew of details on how much the program costs and what vehicles are available. Three levels of subscription are available, each with a suitably snooty name starting with Signature, and going up to Reserve, and finally Premier. Signature starts …

2019 Alfa Romeo GTV

With 505 horsepower from a Ferrari-derived V6, lightning quick steering, and one of the best chassis in the business, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is one of the best sports sedans you can buy right now. But what if Alfa made an even quicker, prettier, coupe-ier, hybrid-ier version? Well, that’s the plan according to FCA’s …
