The Aston Martin DBX is a tale of two vehicles

The Aston Martin DBX is the brand’s first SUV — and the stakes for the iconic British luxury car maker couldn’t be higher. Like Astons before it, the DBX is objectively handsome. Its sculptural form stretches out to unapologetic ample proportions, and stands out in the crowd of SUVs that frequent the private-school pickup lane. It’s an opulent design that scores high on aesthetics, performance and character. It’s also a vehicle that arrives late to the ultra premium SUV segment, and lacks the in...

The big comparison: The Ioniq 5 from Hyundai makes the VW ID.4 look old, and not just visually

2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum Review: Should You Consider This Three-Row Family Hauler?

2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum In Our Opinion: The 2020 Toyota Highlander feels like a big SUV, but overall it's easy to live with as a daily driver. All models are standard with a list of connectivity features, like Apple Car Play, Android Auto, Waze, and SiriusXM.

I've driven midsize trucks from Ford, Chevy, GMC, Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Jeep. And best pickup is clear — although it has plenty of competition

Consumers have a wide range of choices — especially if they want a midsize pickup that can deliver great offroad performance. The Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison is the best, but it has a challenger in the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. And the ancient Nissan Frontier could be the best bang for...

The $61,000 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is an improvement on the original that made driving this Italian SUV sheer bliss

I drove a $61,240 Alfa Romeo Ti Sport SUV, complete with Alfa's Q4 all-wheel-drive system. This is a refreshed Stelvio; I'd enjoyed the SUV in 2018, but I had a few complaints about the interior and the infotainment system. Alfa Romeo has corrected the Stelvio's flaws in the updated version. My test vehicle had a 2.0-liter, inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood. It makes 280 horsepower with 306 pound-feet of torque and is unchanged from the previous version. With my problems ...

BMW Says Hello To Android Auto

A few short decades ago, manufacturing cars was a relatively simple business. All you did was build cars to the best of your ability, and people either bought them or they didn’t. If you made good cars, you would go on to run a successful manufacturer, and if you made bad cars, you would quickly be out of business. It was a slightly cutthroat world, but the system worked. Nowadays, the number of things you have to take into account when designing and developing a new car is much larger and endl...
