Volvo’s More Inclusive Safety Developments

The brand's crash-test dummies and new tech continue to make it a pioneer in safety Since Volvo introduced the three-point seatbelt in 1959—which they then shared industry-wide—safety has been core to the brand.

Freedom of Choice: Kia’s Stinger GTS Is Whatever Its Owner Wants It to Be

It’s strange how, after an automaker goes to the trouble of building a car aimed at the perpetually cranky enthusiast crowd, you can sometimes forget the vehicle exists. That’s the case with the Kia Stinger. Introduced in 2017, the liftback sedan — offered in turbo four-cylinder and V6 guise, rear- or all-wheel drive — still eludes […] The post Freedom of Choice: Kia’s Stinger GTS Is Whatever Its Owner Wants It to Be appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mighty Guerrilla: A Harley Fat Bob from Rough Crafts

It’s been almost nine years since we featured the Rough Crafts ‘Iron Guerrilla‘—a murdered-out Harley-Davidson Sportster that flung Taiwanese customizer Winston Yeh firmly into the spotlight. It was only Winston’s second build, but it immediately established his signature style. You’ll still find traces of the Iron Guerrilla’s DNA in Winston’s work today. And it spawned a catalogue of Rough Crafts parts that still sell well (and are frequently copied). Now, for his latest release, Winston’...

By now, you’ve all had a chance to digest Lincoln’s new take on a compact CUV. Underpinned by a platform shared with the equally new 2020 Ford Escape and boasting a model-specific rear multi-link type setup (“integral bush suspension” in Lincoln parlance), the 2020 Corsair is the brand’s latest attempt to restore Lincoln’s faded lustre.

ICON 1000 Women’s MH1000 Jacket Hands-On Review
