You get to know a vehicle on a road trip. The Ascent logged its longest to date when office-mate Frank Markus took a 2,114-mile jaunt from Detroit to Memphis, Greenville South Carolina, and back. The Ascent doesn’t have the same grunt as the Durango that made a similar trip a year earlier, but the Subaru

Last month, Kia announced pricing on its much-anticipated Telluride crossover. It may not be a body-on-frame SUV, but it has a cool design, a nice interior, and third-row seating, which should make it popular with families. Add in Kia’s excellent bumper-to-bumper warranty and its even better powertrain warranty, and we have a feeling the Telluride

Yesterday, Tesla announced that it would finally begin taking orders for the long-awaited $35,000 (well, $36,200 with destination) version of the Model 3. Today, in a move that feels very intentional, Nissan announced pricing for the long-range Leaf Plus. While the regular Leaf gets a 40-kilowatt-hour battery and a 150-mile range, the Leaf Plus gives you a 62-kWh battery

Subaru has teased its next-generation Legacy again, and this time it’s showing off the exterior. Based on this shadowy image, we can tell the midsize sedan will stick to a conservative appearance. The headlamps have changed slightly, and the daytime running lights now take on a “D” shape. The side mirrors have been moved from the

The Honda CR-V is not only Honda’s best-selling vehicle but was also our 2018 SUV of the Year. We crowned this spacious crossover because it does so much so well, from its intelligently designed interior and segment-best driver-assist technology to its exceptional road manners. Our 2019 CR-V EX-L tester features the optional 1.5-liter turbocharged mill

The RDX’s A-Spec badges promise sportier performance than the average luxury crossover, connecting the new model to the original RDX better than the previous generation ever did. A 272-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four powers every 2019 RDX, but it’s not the engine’s extra 20 horses over Accord 2.0s that intrigues us. Multiple editors have complimented the RDX’s

“How was it?” a former colleague asked me upon my return from the Kingdom of Bahrain where I drove a Panamera Sport Turismo GTS around the island and lapped the slightly lighter Panamera GTS around the Bahrain International Circuit. Turns out, my old coworker now works for Porsche in Germany, and after 22 hours’ worth

Just a few months ago, our spy photographers caught a next-generation CLA prototype out testing, possibly in AMG form. Now, the CLA has returned wearing a different grille and less camouflage. Though that earlier prototype appeared to wear Mercedes-AMG’s Panamericana grille, this CLA sports a front end inspired by the CLS-Class. The camouflage obscures the

Entering its fourth generation, the BMW X5 receives a new architecture, new engines, and an optional off-road package. Design changes are more subtle, but all together, they contribute to a more refined look compared to its predecessor. The question is: Did BMW go far enough given this is a full redesign and not a midcycle

The Subaru Outback is an enigma. Essentially a wagon variant of the Legacy sedan with the stance and off-road capability of a crossover, the Outback is a vehicle for people who don’t necessarily like crossovers. Despite its unusual position in the market, it’s Subaru’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S., and for good reason. We continue to praise the current model
