2022 Hyundai Kona Arrives With New Looks, N Line Variant

Hyundai showcased a number of updates for its subcompact Kona on Tuesday without minimizing the funkiness it’s already famous for. In fact, the Korean crossover might even have a little more personality than it did before. While the grille has been reduced in size and some of the hard edges rounded off, it remains impressive […] The post 2022 Hyundai Kona Arrives With New Looks, N Line Variant appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Chevrolet Bolt-based Crossover Makes First Appearance

The Chevrolet Bolt has carried the electric torch for General Motors for several years now. It’s lonely, but won’t be for long. While plenty of press gravitates towards the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq, GMC Hummer EV, and a slew of electric vehicles scheduled to follow, there’s a far more humble vehicle waiting in the wings. Chevrolet’s […] The post Chevrolet Bolt-based Crossover Makes First Appearance appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A More Basic Base: 2021 Cadillac XT6 Sheds Cylinders, Price

Cadillac’s XT6, a midsize crossover our reviewers had something to say about, arrived in mid-2019 with one powertrain in tow. Instant rivalry sprung up between the front-drive-biased XT6 and the rear-biased Lincoln Aviator. Our preference lands firmly on the latter CUV. Regardless of our feelings on the model, Cadillac has decided to broaden the XT6’s […] The post A More Basic Base: 2021 Cadillac XT6 Sheds Cylinders, Price appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

You Know, There’s Still Another Rogue on the Way

Nissan unveiled the next-generation Rogue earlier this year, revealing a taller-looking, butched-up CUV with a newly direct-injected four-cylinder engine under hood. Arriving for 2021, the embattled automaker’s bread-and-butter crossover had best resonate with customers. But that’s not the only crossover shoe dropping for 2021. Overlooked as it is, there’ll be a new take on the […] The post You Know, There’s Still Another Rogue on the Way appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

At Least One Chevrolet Blazer Ekes Out Better Mileage for 2021

The mild content changes coming to Chevrolet’s midsize Blazer for 2021 were the talk of the town last month, though it’s entirely possible people were talking about Blazer for a very different reason… Regardless, one of the changes not talked about by either the public or General Motors is something first aired by the EPA. Noticed […] The post At Least One Chevrolet Blazer Ekes Out Better Mileage for 2021 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 BMW X1 xDrive28i Review – German Wagon, German Luxury Price Tag

Crossovers often get mocked by auto journalists as “tall wagons.” These scribes – and there are many, myself included, who have used this term – don’t understand why people don’t buy actual wagons. Indeed, just the other day, the section of the Twitterverse reserved for auto writers had a discussion about why the public likes […] The post 2020 BMW X1 xDrive28i Review – German Wagon, German Luxury Price Tag appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Buick Crowns Tweener CUV Its Sales Stud

The Buick Encore GX, a larger, unrelated Encore with fewer cylinders than you’re used to, quietly appeared in the brand’s stable just as “pandemic” became every newscast’s favorite word. Like its Chevrolet Trailblazer fraternal twin, the Encore GX boasts a more spacious body than its subcompact stablemate and a brace of three-pot engines designer for […] The post Buick Crowns Tweener CUV Its Sales Stud appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Crossover Injection Aids Kia’s COVID Recovery

U.S. sales results, at least those that we know of, were a mixed bag in July. Automakers foreign and domestic are busy replenishing inventories drained by a two-month shutdown of U.S. manufacturing; for many, the restocking can’t come soon enough. At Kia Motors’s West Point, Georgia plant, production of the Telluride crossover got underway again […] The post Crossover Injection Aids Kia’s COVID Recovery appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Brace Yourselves for the QX55, Infiniti Advises

With the upcoming QX55, Infiniti is tearing a page from the Volkswagen Atlas’ playbook. That German manufacturer saw that it had a good thing in its midsize crossover, so it decided to get more bang for its buck by shaving a little length and height from the three-row model, creating a mildly upscale, slightly restyled […] The post Brace Yourselves for the QX55, Infiniti Advises appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

CX-30 Propels Mazda to Another Monthly Sales Gain

The not-quite-subcompact CX-30 arrived at just the right time for Mazda, appearing at the tail end of what had been a grim 2019 for Mazda.

Plug-in Lincoln Corsair Could Be Thin on the Ground

Lincoln’s compact MKC transformed into the Lincoln Corsair for 2020, bringing style borrowed from its big brother Aviator to buyers of lesser means… or wants. Tagging along a year late, a plug-in hybrid variant will join the Corsair trim ladder for 2021, but a new report suggests it won’t be in plentiful supply.

GMC: Moving From the Middle?

GMC’s an interesting brand. Free of cars from the outset (Sprint/Cabalero notwithstanding), General Motors’ truck brand seems well positioned to turn America’s unquenchable thirst for trucks and utility vehicles into big, big bucks. For the most part, it has, yet glaring shafts of white space remain in the brand’s lineup. Time for a little rearranging?

Power Loss on the Way for GM’s Best-selling CUV

Sure, we joke about the Blazer and question the need for tweeners like the Trailblazer (while lamenting what both names have become), but there’s no denying that General Motors’ Chevrolet Equinox is a sales juggernaut, topping all other GM CUVs in sales by a mile. And there’s a lot of CUVs to top. Customers seem […] The post Power Loss on the Way for GM’s Best-selling CUV appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

BMW Debuts iX3: iNext, Please

BMW revealed the production version of the iX3 crossover this week, adhering as closely to the 2018 concept as possible.

Hyundai Pens a New Palisade Price Ceiling

After putting the finishing touches on its sales-seeking crossover expansion, Hyundai realized something already well-known by domestic truck makers — if you offer a new trim above your loftiest level of luxury, plenty of people are liable to buy it.

The Mazda Bump: What a Difference a ‘0’ Makes

June auto sales in the hard-hit U.S. new vehicle market were nowhere near normal for this time of the year, down an estimated 25 percent below levels seen last June.

Prelude to a Preview: Cadillac Lyriq Continues Its Long March to Reality

“Lear-ick” or “lear-eek”? That’s the first question the Cadillac Lyriq brings to mind, the second being who, exactly, was behind the naming of this future electric crossover.

2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross SEL 1.5T S-AWC Review – In a Word: Weird

Mitsubishi burned a lot of what little street cred it had left by taking the name of a once-beloved affordable sports coupe and plunking it onto yet another crossover.
