The $24,000 Toyota Corolla Hybrid is a thrifty fuel saver that'll leave you wondering why everyone isn't driving it

My Toyota Corolla Hybrid wore a sharp red paint job. Matthew DeBord/Insider I tested a $24,855 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, from the 2021 model year — the US market has been denied this vehicle until recently. Like the non-hybrid Corolla, the Hybrid version is just a few notches above basic transportation, and the LE trim level (the only one available) has low-key styling and a bland interior. But the Corolla Hybrid has Toyota's proven technology under the hood. The hybrid drivetrain is based on...

The Audi e-tron was built to challenge the Tesla Model X — I drove the all-electric SUVs to see how they stack up

The Audi e-tron is a good electric SUV, but it's not as good as the Tesla Model X. Matthew DeBord/Insider I compared an $89,000 Audi e-tron SUV and a Tesla Model X, now selling for about $100,000.The Model X has been the premier electric SUV in the market since 2015. The e-tron was touted as a challenger.But the e-tron has far less range than the Model X, and depending on trim levels, the e-tron can end up costing more than the Tesla.It's tough to argue against the Model X, even though ...

Specs that rival anything Tesla can produce won't matter much if Lucid can't crack the marketing game. Lucid The physical distancing that is the hallmark of the age of the novel coronavirus may mean automakers can't throw glitzy parties to mark the debut of new vehicles, but that limitation (and the distinct lack of hors d'oeuvres) didn't dampen our enthusiasm when we finally got to see the new Lucid Air EV on Wednesday evening. That's because nearly a decade after the Model S made ...

2021 Audi RS 6 Avant RS Tribute Edition: The 1994 RS2 Avant Comes Back!

One of the current “rules” of the automotive world is that the USA doesn’t get any of the cool European station wagons. Thankfully, Audi has decided to break that rule with the upcoming 2021 RS 6 Avant. And to make sure we’ve got the point, they are rolling out a limited version called an RS Tribute Edition. You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out why we don’t have the cool wagons here in the U.S. of A. It’s a one-word reason: Minivans. At some point in the early 80s, suburban dwel...
