2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Review and Road Test in 4K

Hyundai’s Elantra GT has always been a solid hatchback choice in the compact category. For 2018 Hyundai redesigned the plucky hatch to give shoppers a more distinctive exterior and more gadgets and gizmos inside without losing any of the classic Hyundai value and high expected reliability. The compact hatchback segment is heating up in America […]

2018 Kia Stinger Full Review

The Stinger is officially the best car I drove in 2017. Not because it’s the best handling, or fastest car, or most luxurious car I drove last year but because the Stinger raises the bar for affordable performance vehicles. It’s both practical and fun to drive, it’s comfortable yet affordable and most importantly, it’s attainable […]

2018 Nissan Leaf First Drive

America’s most popular EV has just received it’s first redesign featuring a more mainstream look, a bump to 150 miles of range and more standard equipment.

2018 Kia Stinger Review (Base 2.0T)

I was able to convince Kia to give me the keys to a base model with the 2.0L turbo engine and just one option (active safety package). Instead of a “stripper” model that I was expecting, the base Stinger is an incredibly good value. It’s loaded with enough standard features that it makes a compelling […]

2018 Chevrolet Bolt Review

With 238+ miles of electric range, an affordable sticker price and better acceleration than your average compact hatchback the Bolt is the first no-compromises EV in America. There may be snazzier EVs, there may be faster EVs and there may be more comfortable EVs, but none of the other options offers the blend of features, […]

2018 Hyundai Ioniq EV Review

It seems that EVs are falling into two categories. One with ranges suitable for most daily commutes and one with ranges mimicking an average family sedan with a full tank of gas. With nearly 130 miles of range the Ioniq EV falls into teh first category with a strong focus on overall EV efficiency. It’s […]

2018 Toyota C-HR Review

Whether you call the C-HR a crossover or a hatchback, whether you want to call it a Toyota or reminisce about Scion, the C-HR is unquestionably one of the best values under 172 inches long. The “un-crossover” badge is the result of the American market C-HR not being available with AWD, although for some reason […]

2018 Kia Rio First Drive Review

The Kia Rio has a difficult, and oddly conflicting mission in America. As the least expensive Kia, commuter shoppers demand a car that’s basic, reliable and inexpensive to own. On the other hand, a full third of Rio buyers say they are interested in premium features wrapped in subcompact sheet metal. The result is the […]

2018 Honda Civic Type-R First Drive

If you’ve always thought that the Civic needed more power and a bigger wing, then Honda has read your mind for 2018 with the all-new Type-R. It also happens to be one of the best hot hatches in America, but can it beat the Golf R or Focus RS? That depends on how much you […]
