I enjoy driving the Polestar 2 more than the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 is more comfortable, seemingly better built, and has a better infotainment system. In all the traditional automotive metrics, it’s a better car, and yet I find it hard to recommend over the Tesla Model 3. The Polestar 2 often excels where the Tesla Model 3 falters.

2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Grand Touring Review: A True Driver’s Car

2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF In Our Opinion: The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a real driver's car. While there are faster and more prestigious cars on the market, they will come with a higher price tag.

Styling-wise (especially the RF), very few sports cars can match it, and we would argue even fewer are more fun to drive. The Miata has been delighting drivers for three decades, a...
