The Toyota Sienna soldiers on with minimal changes for 2019 and 2020 while we wait for a complete redesign expected for the 2021 model year. While we wait for the next gen model, the Sienna is up against tough competition from the inexpensive Grand Caravan (which may be ancient, but it’s also crazy cheap), the […]
The more I drove the all-new Mazda3, the more I came to the conclusion that Mazda’s new compact sedan should be seen as an alternative to the Acura ILX, the defunct Buick Verano and perhaps an Audi A3 rather than just a Corolla or Civic competitor. The new 3 handles impeccably, but the real win […]

Toyota’s Corolla hasn’t always come as a hatch in America but Toyota now seems dedicated to the more practical form of their compact vehicle. The new Corolla hatch is our first preview of what the upcoming 2020 Corolla sedan will be when it launches later this year.
Subaru’s hotly anticipated flagship sedan is finally here! For 2020 Subaru is doubling down on fuel economy, premium interior touches and turbo goodness. Rather than rehashing the 3.6L H6 engine from the last generation model, Subaru lifted the new turbo engine from the Ascent crossover and didn’t reduce power at all. With 260 horsepower, 277 […]
Chevy is rejoining the mid-sized 2-row crossover battle by resurrecting the Blazer name for their latest CUV. Most closely related to the Cadillac XT5, you could also look at the Blazer as a right-sized Traverse.
