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...

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road Review: Great for Playing in the Mud!

2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road In Our Opinion: The 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road is the newest member of the automaker's TRD family. While the off-road capability is a given, we were taken back by how comfortable this RAV4 is on dry pavement. It was a pleasant surprise to discover this off-road rig was still pretty good in the city. Although we are not sold on the exterior styling, the interior is sharp and that makes up for it.

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...

All the tech in Ford’s most important vehicle: the 2021 F-150 truck

Ford rolled out all the stops Thursday evening for the reveal of its all-new F-150 truck, right down to the splashy videos dominated by electric guitar riffs. Heck, the automaker even cast the sharp-tongued Denis Leary as its MC. Of course, none of that really matters. It’s all about what Ford has done to improve the most important and profitable vehicle in its lineup. It’s been six years since the last redesign. This all-new F-150 offers kind of performance and abundance options that Ford truck...

2021 Nissan Rogue: Complete Overview of This Newly Redesigned Crossover

The 2021 Nissan Rogue has some big shoes to fill. Nissan sold 412,110 units of the outgoing second-generation Rogue in 2018. Although Nissan sold only 350,447 units (representing a 15 percent drop) in 2019, the message is clear: The Rogue is Nissan’s most popular vehicle in North America, so the third-generation model better be good. “The all-new Rogue was purposefully designed to meet all the needs of today’s young families,” said Mike Colleran, Senior Vice President, Nissan U.S. Marketing a...

Software shares set new records as tech rallies

In another up for technology shares, software companies saw their values reach new heights today. The days trading comes after a selloff last week eased some of technology companies’ rebounds from their COVID-19 lows; stocks in tech companies have more than made up for their early-year declines in mid-2020, with the Nasdaq reaching 10,000 points before giving up some ground. Today the Nasdaq Composite index rose 0.15% to 9,910.53 points, just a few bips short of its all-time highs. A thematic te...

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...

2020 Hyundai Sonata Review: Near Perfect Sedan For Everyday Life

2020 Hyundai Sonata In Our Opinion: The 2020 Hyundai Sonata is completely redesigned and in a big way. If midsize sedans were having a party, the room would turn and look once the 2020 Sonata came in. Although lacking a few things, it's not enough to justify skipping outright. We anticipate many buyers (especially loyal Hyundai ones) will be pleased with the 2020 Sonata. Exterior Styling 80 Interior Layout 85 Driving Dynamics 92 Safety & Tech Features 87 ...
