I Didn’t Know Who Would Buy The 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross, Until I Got In It

I’m a pretty firm believer in the concept that there is someone in this world who will love every car. You might have totally hated the 2013 Mazda2, whereas I adored it because it was totally perfect for my needs at the time. But when I got behind the wheel of the 2022 Toyota Corolla […]

2022 Hyundai Elantra N & Kona N: First Drive

Back in 2018, when Hyundai first released the Veloster N, it was a big deal. The Korean automaker had done a lot to make its cars more competitive, but it still wasn’t a company that was known for building cars that were fun to drive. Once the Veloster N showed up, that all changed. It […]

Are Electric Cars As Fun As Gasoline Cars? I Drove A Porsche 911 And Audi E-Tron GT To Find Out

“Electric cars are boring” is a refrain I hear often from old-school car enthusiasts, and I understand why. With EVs, the sound that we associate with speed is gone. The “jerks” associated with gear shifts are gone. Engine vibrations are gone. Unique torque curves are gone. The stick shift is gone. But are EVs really […]

Even My Nose Knows The New Supra Isn’t A Real Toyota

I’m pretty sure the car community got bored with the whole debate over the new Toyota Supra not being a real Supra or a real Toyota a while ago. But since I was busy doing other things at the time such as attending meetings and filling out spreadsheets, I wasn’t really able to participate. That […]

The Kia EV9 Concept Is All About Aero And, Sadly, A Yoke

The Los Angeles Auto Show doesn’t open to the public until Friday, but Wednesday and Thursday are press days, or the days when automakers show off some of their new wares. Kia’s there, too, with this boxy-, angular-looking thing, which it is calling the EV9 Concept. This might be, in a few years, what you […]

Hyundai’s Future Is The Seven Concept Three-Row SUV

The Hyundai Seven concept is a concept, and, as such, an ideal, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the production SUV that Hyundai eventually makes based on this looks and feels similar, because a three-row SUV is the kind of car that is very popular these days, the kind of car that automakers are desperate […]

Acura Really Wants You To Believe The 2023 Integra Deserves Its Name

For the last twenty years, Acura has made a habit of selling sedans and SUVs with three-letter alphanumeric names that are easy to confuse. But there was once a time when the company liked to use real names with vowels. Among those, few were more revered than Integra. Next year, the Integra returns.Read more… Continue […]

The Full List Of Car Companies Signed On To Bring Emissions To Zero Is Pretty Short

The powers that be have the chance to sign on to a pretty low-key and non-binding pledge to bring emissions to zero. You might not be surprised at how few carmakers (and car-making nations) have signed on.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5’s Taillights Are A Reminder That Hyundai-Kia Are Kicking Taillight Ass

Last night, I was conducting my weekly workshop about how to incorporate side marker lighting into erotic fiction at America’s twelfth-best automotive lighting semi-legal hash bar, Amberflash. I was workshopping a very intense scene with a writer involving light bondage and a ‘68 Firebird rear side marker lamp when I… Read more…

The Hyundai Grandeur Heritage Restomod Is ’80s Luxury Gone Cyberpunk

You may recall earlier this year when Hyundai introduced an EV restomod of its Pony hatchback — the brand’s first mass-produced car as well as its first exported out of South Korea. With its recognizably Giugiaro wedge silhouette, the Pony was the perfect candidate for Hyundai to gut and electrify, in a cyberpunk sort…Read more… […]

Hear Me Out: Genesis Needs To Make An AMG GT Competitor

Genesis, by all accounts, makes very good cars. Their sales, however, still lag far behind Mercedes, BMW, or Audi. The problem Genesis faces isn’t an inferior product, it’s an inferior brand image. It’s seen as a “tarted-up Hyundai,” an economy brand with some chrome accents. To dispel that image, Genesis needs to do…Read more… Continue […]

What It Was Like Paying Over $8 Per Gallon Of Fuel

“Sir, come here. I need you to pay,” the cashier said in German. I, a bit dazed by what had just happened at the pump, needed a second to gather my thoughts. “Einen moment,” I responded. I fiddled with my phone, walking in a zombie-like manner around the gas station, eventually arriving at the counter. […]
