BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe: German Muscle At Its Finest

The 2022 BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe follows the same familiar recipe concocted by company founder Burkard Bovensiepen in 1962. But unlike Gordon Ramsay’s signature Beef Wellington dish, Alpina’s formula is relatively straightforward: Take a BMW and make it go faster, stop harder, and corner like Charlie Sheen on rails. In this case, Alpina opted for a “standard” BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe (yes, the one with four doors), took it to Buchloe, and never looked back. Fresh from the warm North American ...

2022 Kia Stinger: As Good As It Gets, Now Even Better

The 2022 Kia Stinger is surfacing with a mild facelift and more horses under the hood. First seen in 2017 as Kia’s highest-performing production vehicle, the Stinger is facing stiff competition from German stalwarts like the Audi S4, Mercedes-AMG C43, and BMW M340i. Au contraire, it also has the Genesis G70 hot on its heels, its veritable platform-mate from parent company Hyundai. In response, Kia is upping the ante by giving the 2022 Stinger more power, more luxury features, and a suite of ...

2022 Ford Super Duty to Receive New Tech & Styling Updates

Work smarter, not harder. That’s the idea behind the latest tech updates for the 2022 Ford Super Duty. To complement the new range of interior technology, Ford is also offering different styling packages and exterior colors for the 2022 Super Duty. Owners of Super Duty trucks count on their vehicles to handle some of the roughest and dirtiest jobs, but there is no reason you can’t look good and enjoy cool tech while doing it. At least, according to Ford. “Super Duty customers aren’t just work...

2022 Chevy Bolt EUV & Bolt EV: Important Differences & Similarities Between These Two New EVs

The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV and Bolt EV are coming to town this summer. Chevy recently pulled the wraps off both vehicles, which share a new platform and multiple connectivity and safety technologies, despite a few key differences. The Bolt EUV and Bolt EV are part of General Motors’ overall plan to launch 30 new EVs globally by 2025 and reimagine the future of mobility.

GM unveils a refreshed Chevy Bolt EV and its bigger, yet compact crossover sibling

GM revealed Sunday a refreshed Chevrolet Bolt EV and a new, bigger — yet still compact — crossover called the Chevrolet Bolt EUV as part of the automaker’s goal to introduce 30 electric vehicles in the next four years. The vehicles, which are expected to go on sale this summer, are like siblings: the pair share much of the same DNA but have their own distinct differences. The 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV is bigger than the Chevy Bolt hatchback. GM lengthened the wheelbase of the EUV by about 3 inches. In...

2022 Nissan Pathfinder Revealed: Engine Specs, Safety Features, Available Technology & More

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has just rolled out with a bunch of new updates and changes. 35 years after the first Pathfinder, the 2022 model will feature a rugged all-new design, new transmission, seating for up to eight, and a new 10.8-inch heads-up display along with a host of safety features.

2021 BMW M3 & M4: Legendary M Cars Still Deliver The Goods

The 2021 BMW M3 and M4 are making a grand entrance with a jab of controversy, no thanks to what many consider is a blasphemous interpretation of BMW’s kidney grille. First seen in the non-M version of the new 4 Series Coupe, it’s only natural for the M4 to have the same massive grille, but it seems the M3 sedan is sporting the same look. “The design is resoundingly function-driven, pure and reduced without compromise,” said Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President, BMW Group Design. “At the...

GMA T.50: Gordon Murray’s New Fan Car Is The Supercar To Beat

The last time Prof. Gordon Murray CBE came up with a new car, it became a classic icon. 30 years after, we have the GMA T.50, a car of which Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA) claims is rewriting the supercar rule book. It’s a bold claim, considering the T.50’s predecessor is none other than the McLaren F1, a vehicle that professional drivers, connoisseurs, and enthusiasts consider to the best-driving supercar ever made – until now. Who Is Gordon Murray? Professor Ian Gordon Murray CBE is a ...

2020 Toyota Camry TRD Review: This Track-Tuned Sedan Will Spice Up Your Daily Commute

Toyota keeps adding to its Camry lineup and now has twelve models to choose from. The Japanese automaker has released a performance-oriented Camry TRD trim for 2020. If you thought the Camry was a boring sedan, that changes with the TRD trim. The 2020 Toyota Camry TRD is upgraded with black front splitters, an aero kit, black wheels, and a rear spoiler for visual effects. You could easily mistake it for another model with its eye-catching exterior styling. Does the new Camry TRD offer real pe...

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Review: Improved Fuel Mileage But Some Drawbacks

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid In Our Opinion: The 2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is an impressive car overall with excellent fuel economy and helpful technology.

2021 Mazda CX-5: A Complete Look At The Pricing & Trim Levels

The 2021 Mazda CX-5 is forging on with a few minor changes, including slightly higher base prices compared to last year’s model. But in essence, the Mazda CX-5 is one of the finest five-seat crossovers you can buy today, and we say that in high regard to the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Subaru Forester to name a few. It’s easy to know why the CX-5 is Mazda’s bestselling vehicle in the USA. It merrily combines sophisticated design, a premium cabin, and dynamic reflexes – the three main ingredi...

2021 Subaru Forester: Still Delivering The Goods Across 5 Trim Levels

The 2021 Subaru Forester remains a sterling choice among compact crossovers. The new Forester is essentially unchanged, but it now comes with more standard features, albeit at higher base prices this time around. I have to admit; the Forester name commands respect. It was one of the first “crossover” vehicles available. It literally shook the market and became one of the frontrunners in the CUV category, and it’s not hard to figure out why. The first-gen Forester was known for having usable i...

2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring Review: A True Driver’s Car

2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF In Our Opinion: The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a real driver's car. While there are faster and more prestigious cars on the market, they will come with a higher price tag. The Miata, on the other hand, is a different breed. When you hit the road, the Miata will stand out from every other car. Styling-wise (especially the RF), very few sports cars can match it, and we would argue even fewer are more fun to drive. The Miata has been delighting drivers for three decades, a...

2020 Lexus ES 350 F Sport Review: Fun to Drive During The Week & Twice on Sundays!

2020 Lexus ES 350 F Sport In Our Opinion: The Lexus ES has been on the scene for 30 years but is still as youthful as ever for 2020, especially the F Sport configuration. On the one hand, the Lexus ES 350 F Sport is sleek and athletic; on the other, comfortable and quiet. Lexus faces stiff competition from players like Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Genesis, Mercedes-Benz, and others. However, we believe the 2020 ES 350 F Sport can hold its own in the battle royale of luxury cars. Exterior S...

Mazda Releases 100th Anniversary Special Edition MX-5 Miata

My love for Mazda’s Miata is well known. Sure, call it bias, but, from my perspective, it’s a hard car for a gearhead not to like. Light, tight, handles right; sure, it could use more power, but show me a car that doesn’t. Mazda’s had a good thing on its hands since the get-go, and they’re not about to mess with it . . . much. They are coming up on the company’s centenary, and to mark that 100 years, they’ve chosen their Miata to carry a special package. Miata 100th Anniversary Special E...

2021 Kia K5: Kia’s Newest Midsize Contender is a Certified Stunner

2021 Kia K5 is built on the automaker’s new N3 platform. All-wheel drive and a turbocharged engine are available. Kia says buyers still want sedans despite the popularity of SUVs. The automotive realm is shifting as I speak. Needless to say, we knew Kia was renaming the Optima to the K5, but we weren’t expecting it to be a stunner. Dare I say it looks better and more well-sorted than the new Hyundai Sonata? I’m beginning to notice a pattern here. Parent company Hyundai was first to relea...

2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport Review: Should You Put This Sporty SUV On Your List?

2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport In Our Opinion: The 2020 VW Atlas Cross Sport is a more athletic and stylish version of the current Atlas. Abundant cargo space and available all-wheel drive are among the high points. While overall driveability is good, the Atlas Cross Sport can feel top-heavy at times, making it harder to maneuver around tighter corners. While we are generally pleased with the Atlas Cross Sport, there are many SUVs and crossovers on the market to choose from. It's best to alwa...

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited 2.0T Review: Why We Want The Turbo Engine

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.0T In Our Opinion: Hyundai has upped their SUV and crossover game to say the least. They have two all-new vehicles in the smaller Venue and the larger, three-row Palisade. Now comes the Santa Fe, fresh off a fancy redesign just last year. After having occasion to drive all three, the Santa Fe is the one we would pick. It's the perfect middle ground in Hyundai's SUV lineup. Exterior Styling 82 Interior Layout 80 Driving Dynamics 89 Sa...
