Refresh Awaits Hyundai’s Kona; N Line Model to Arrive for 2021

The subcompact Hyundai Kona earned itself no shortage of attention on these digital pages after it landed in dealers in February of 2018. Some of that press was, ahem, not favorable to the little Hyundai, which impressed neither in interior volume or in off-roadability. It’s a subcompact crossover, of course. Its utility will be limited. […] The post Refresh Awaits Hyundai’s Kona; N Line Model to Arrive for 2021 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

(Not) For Your Eyes Only: Jaguar Land Rover Loses Bid to Squash Defender Lookalike

Imitation, as the saying goes, is the sincerest form of flattery, but Jaguar Land Rover’s been burned in the past, what with a certain Chinese automaker rolling out near carbon copies of its Range Rover Evoque crossover.

2021 Ford Bronco Two-Door and Four-Door: Forward to the Past

Eventually, the absence of a body-on-frame, go-anywhere, dedicated off-road SUV was too great for the Ford lineup to bear — which is why, after a quarter-century absence, the Bronco triumphantly returns to do battle with its Mopar foe, the Jeep Wrangler. Talked about endlessly since Ford announced the storied model’s return and leaked as often […] The post 2021 Ford Bronco Two-Door and Four-Door: Forward to the Past appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Style King Bentley Bentayga Goes In for a Facelift

If you detected a whiff of sarcasm in that headline, your nose wasn’t off.

It’s big, it’s bold, and it sells, so Bentley naturally loves anything that generates […] The post Style King Bentley Bentayga Goes In for a Facelift appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2021 Kia Carnival/Sedona: Don’t Call It a Minivan

The vehicle you see here may bear the name of a minivan, but Kia Motors affectionately (and perhaps optimistically) refers to it as a “Grand Utility Vehicle.” Appearing in South Korea on Wednesday wearing next-generation duds, the Carnival —aka the North American-market Sedona — apparently wants to be mistaken for an SUV.

Does It Have to Be Said? Getting Hit by an SUV Is Worse Than Getting Hit by a Car, Study Finds

From the “No Shit” files comes a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In it, researchers reach an obvious conclusion that should surprise no one: tall, blunt-faced vehicles are far more likely to damage your sensitive, delicate body than low-riding passenger cars.

Face Time: 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe Drops the Towel

It seems potentially controversial front end treatments are today’s theme.

See Anything You Like? Next-generation Lexus IS Looms

I must make a confession. Of all the vehicles on the market today — a diverse crowd if there ever was one — no car’s rear end annoys me more than that of the Lexus IS.

Thai-market Nissan Kicks e-Power Could be a Design Omen

Almost every day I go for a walk that takes me up the hill behind my apartment. And on that route, I pass by a black, base model Nissan Kicks parked in my neighbor’s driveway.

Bolder, or Blander? Upcoming Mercedes-Benz S-Class Apparently Spied

A Spanish Instagram account seemingly leaked photos of an uncovered next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class late Tuesday, showing off the flagship’s new face and caboose and revealing something far more noteworthy: a screen-heavy cockpit that throws tradition to the wind. Not that the previous S-Class’ cabin was overly festooned with traditional buttons or dials. Still, the new […] The post Bolder, or Blander?

Last night’s online conversation about bad General Motors vehicles wasn’t the first of its kind, and it’ll surely not be the last.
