The 2019 Subaru Ascent Is The Three-Row SUV That Actually Feels Like A Subaru

Though Subaru’s sales game has been unstoppable in recent years, even as it keeps making fun and good things for us to drive, there’s one lucrative segment it has yet to conquer—the big three-row crossover one. The 2019 Subaru Ascent aims to change that, and unlike the black sheep Tribeca it actually looks and feels…Read […]

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Is Good But It Tries To Do Too Much

It used to be with The Cars, you got in, turned the key, and drove, stopping for gas on occasion. You had one driving mode, and life was simple. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is different. You have six driving modes, and life can be very complicated. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The Mahindra Roxor Is A Reincarnated Willys Jeep And You Absolutely Need One

There are some who are into cars for the wrenchin’. The idea of spending time, money and sanity resuscitating an old Willys Jeep speaks to them. But some of us just want to drive a working vehicle. If you want classic CJ looks without having to keep an old Jeep alive, the Mahindra Roxor was […]

Here’s What A BMW 5 Series Can Do With $14,000 In Dinan Upgrades

I was about to call this $98,000 2018 BMW M550i with Dinan’s Stage 1 tune a “sleeper”, but the quartet of fatty exhaust pipes and 20-inch Forgeline wheels will definitely wake you up. It’s a lot more low key than an M5, though, and on the highway it’s pretty much a low-flying private jet.Read more… […]

The 2018 Mini Countryman Plug-In Makes A Case For Short Range Hybrids

The 2018 Mini Cooper S E Countryman All4 has a long name and a smaller battery than almost any other plug-in hybrid in existence. But even though it’s a small step toward electric driving, it’s got a lot of personality for a car you connect to a wall socket.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2018 Volvo XC40 Is Full Of Genius Little Touches To Make Life Easier

For the longest time, a small SUV has been a fashion statement. “You’re not worthless,” they shouted. “You’ve amounted to something.” “Your parents aren’t ashamed of you.” That’s because you moved to the suburbs, got a house, and the small SUV. The 2018 Volvo XC40 seems to be the first one made for the rest […]

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Didn’t Get Soft, It Got Much Better

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is easily the most important vehicle to come out this year. (It’s debatable whether the Tesla Model 3 is really “out” yet.) An American icon is being replaced, and fans have been nervous. Is the new Wrangler still a serious off-roader worth worshipping, or has it been watered down like almost…Read […]

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Can Do Almost Anything

The Porsche Cayenne is my favorite automotive troll. Porsche fans were horrified at the idea of a Porsche SUV only to discover that the Cayenne is ridiculously capable off-road, on-road, on-track, and even when towing. The all-new 2019 Porsche Cayenne is faster and more powerful than ever, and if you’re still mad…Read more… Continue Reading […]

The 2018 Range Rover Velar Is A Refreshingly Original Take

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is more about style than speed. And while it can go off-road, it doesn’t really love to. But make no mistake—this is a brave car that manages to stand out in today’s bland, busy and boring flock of medium-sized crossovers.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

The 2017 Ford GT Makes Most Supercars Look Soft

The 2017 Ford GT is, without question, a tremendous marvel of an exotic supercar, pushing the envelope in technology, performance, appearance, engineering, and cool features. It also shares its engine block with the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. This fact alone will cause many people—exotic car purists—to dismiss the GT as not…Read more… Continue Reading at http://gizmodo.com
