2020 Porsche Taycan Timidly Teased Via New Design Sketches

While Porsche has already confirmed its first-ever all-electric model for a September debut, parading it around in Mission E guise, the production Taycan remains a bit of a mystery. Most, including yours truly, are under the assumption that the finished model won’t look all that different from the prototype (probably with a dash of Panamera). But that’s […] The post 2020 Porsche Taycan Timidly Teased Via New Design Sketches appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Tesla Model Y: Industry Watchers Remain Cynical As Fans Gird Their Loins

Perhaps to give journalists a taste of what it’s like to be a Tesla reservation holder, Tesla’s Model Y launch event, scheduled for 11 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, started late. When it did, CEO Elon Musk launched into a rundown of his company’s well-documented history. There were a few admissions during his speech, including this […] The post Tesla Model Y: Industry Watchers Remain Cynical As Fans Gird Their Loins appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2018 Ford F-150 Platinum 4X4 SuperCrew – Power Cruising

Part of the appeal of pickup trucks is that they can be many things to many people. Tow machine to haul your boat? Check. Home-improvement aid? Sure, throw those 2x4s in the back. Guarantee that your friends will call you when they need help moving, even if they never call you any other time? Sure.

In The Key of H: Hyundai Sings a New Sonata

Korean’s automaker is known for many things, not the least of which is providing a great feature-to-dollar ratio. Attentive gearheads will also know they tend to make massive changes to their Sonata sedan with speed and alacrity unknown to any other automaker. Each iteration of the mid-size sedan looks – for better or worse – […] The post In The Key of H: Hyundai Sings a New Sonata appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept Could Preview Next Crosstrek

Subaru has unveiled yet another concept wearing the Viziv name. This time it’s called the “Adrenaline” and appears to foreshadow the next Crosstrek. Styling is suitably wild for a show vehicle, but enough of Subaru’s current design language remains to make us believe the model isn’t terribly far away from a production model. However, no […] The post Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept Could Preview Next Crosstrek appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mazda CX-3 Too Small? Try the CX-30 on for Size

As promised, Mazda threw the sheets off its mystery vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing a small crossover that’s not too small. The brand’s CX-3 often earns gripes for its diminutive size and limited interior volume, not to mention its middling ground clearance, but until today there was nothing to bridge the gap between CX-3 […] The post Mazda CX-3 Too Small?

Tesla’s $35K Model 3 Arrives Fashionably Late

The $35,000 Model 3 is here. Fittingly, perhaps, it’s three years late. Tesla has promised a $35,000 version of the Model 3 since announcing the car in 2016, but the company focused on more-expensive variants at first to help get the model off the ground without tanking the company in the process. It needed the […] The post Tesla’s $35K Model 3 Arrives Fashionably Late appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Polestar 2 Debut: China’s Response to the Tesla Model 3

Polestar, Volvo’s former performance division (which parent company Geely insisted be spun off as its own electric car brand), announced its second automobile on Wednesday. Whereas the Polestar 1 was a 600-horsepower hybrid coupe, Polestar 2 adds a set of rear doors and does away with internal combustion altogether. For all the “Tesla fighters” out there, […] The post Polestar 2 Debut: China’s Response to the Tesla Model 3 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Electric Donk: Nissan Teases IMQ Crossover Ahead of Geneva Debut

Hot on the heels of the IMS, which debuted at the North American International Auto Show in January, Nissan is prepping another trade show darling.

2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Review – All-around Virtue, or the Auto Journalist’s Perfect Car

There’s a reason why the Volkswagen Golf GTI is fetishized by journalists and enthusiasts as perhaps the perfect daily-driver sporty car. Because if it isn’t, it’s damn near close. Changes for 2018 were minimal. The 2018 got a mild standard horsepower bump (assuming you’re using premium fuel) to 220, up from 210. Other changes included […] The post 2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Review – All-around Virtue, or the Auto Journalist’s Perfect Car appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan & Hybrid – Finally Getting Cheerful

I had a nickname for the Toyota Corolla once. Back in my days as an overly judgmental prepubescent teenage boy, I used to call Toyota’s honest economy car the “Crapolla.” Growing up in an affluent North Jersey neighborhood in the ‘90s, everyone and their mother had a Bimmer, Benz, or even a Bentley.

2020 Kia Soul First Drive – Meeting Expectations Nicely

When you look at a Kia Soul, you likely peg it for just what it is – a boxy, utilitarian commuter vehicle. You wouldn’t expect it to be a blast to drive, or full of coddling luxury materials and content. Sometimes, what you see really is more or less what you get.

Nearly Unrecognizable 2020 Volvo XC90 Bows With Novel Mild Hybrid System

You wouldn’t know it, but that’s a heavily refreshed 2020 Volvo XC90 staring back at you from the header image. Good thing the grille still carries a Volvo badge.

Toyota 86 British Green Limited: Another Japan-only Special Edition

Despite Toyota claiming that the 86 will stick around for a while, everything points to the car being on its last legs.

At the 2017 North American International Auto Show, Nissan revealed its plans to slot the North American version of its Qashqai crossover between the Juke and Rogue.

Beyond Adventure: Toyota’s RAV4 – Yes, the RAV4 – Gets the TRD Treatment

After last year’s Camry and Avalon surprise, it should come as no shock that Toyota’s keen to expand TRD branding beyond its body-on-frame trucks and SUVs. Frankly, the automaker ran out of BOF vehicles to tune for the trail. Enter the RAV4, redesigned for 2019 and still no one’s idea of a hardcore off-roader.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI: The Sedan With the Heart of a GTI

Big, hulking trucks may have stolen the spotlight in the lead-up to the Chicago Auto Show, but Volkswagen still holds an interest in plain ol’ cars.

Despite Big North American Earnings, Barra Says GM Plants Have to Go

Despite a year-over-year sales drop in the fourth quarter of 2018, a higher average transaction price spurred by growth in high-margin vehicle sales in North America returned better than expected Q4 earnings for General Motors.

Guess Who: Mazda to Debut Mystery Crossover at Geneva Auto Show

It’s the Chicago Auto Show this week, but some manufacturers are already teasing models for March’s Geneva International Motor Show.

Subaru’s Most Troubled Model Gets a Makeover, Bows Next Week

Few automakers can boast of 85 consecutive months of yearly month-over-month growth, but that’s exactly what Subaru did as the calendar turned from 2018 to 2019. Still, despite the automaker’s impressive performance in the United States, not every model in Subaru’s lineup is a sales stud. There’s always a problem child or two.

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric Pricing Very Obviously Targets the Chevy Bolt

Hyundai’s Kona Electric is gradually seeping into select dealerships across the United States, requiring the company to (finally) make a definitive statement about its price.

2019 Honda Passport First Drive – Passport to Sales

Honda really wants to prove that its 2019 Passport five-seat crossover has off-road chops.

2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake S AWD Review – Sultry Styling, British Quirks

Automotive journalists are often accused of falling in love with wagons just because of their bodystyle. Sometimes, however, a wagon is likable for reasons that have nothing to do with shape.

2020 Volkswagen Golf Spotted at German McDonalds?

Despite the 2020 Volkswagen Golf arriving later this year, VW hasn’t done much to tease it.
