We drove a $38,000 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid to see if it's worth the money. Here's the verdict.

The Subaru Crosstrek is one of the more popular compact crossovers on the market today. Based on the compact Impreza hatchback, the Crosstrek is a tweener that straddles the compact crossover and subcompact crossover segments of the market. The Subaru Crosstrek comes standard with a 152 horsepower, 2.0-liter horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine. While the Hybrid trim gets a detuned version of 2.0-liter engine mated to a pair of electric motors and an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with ...

These are the 10 most useless features in cars

Car makers have worked hard to pack their models with the latest generation of in-car tech in recent years. Many of these new fangled features are really helpful and provide consumers greater levels of safety, comfort, and connectivity. Features such as adaptive cruise control, advanced camera systems, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration have a great benefit to drivers. There are also features that are less useful like gesture control, social media integration, and electronic air vents....

Best Convertibles For 2019? Here Are 10 Fast & Fun Options

Not everyone loves driving with the top down. Yet I can think of no better way to welcome the warm and sunny weather than driving a convertible. No matter what you call them (convertible, ragtop, Targa, soft-top, cabriolet, spider, etc.), convertibles have somehow lost their favor among the sea of new crossovers and modern SUVs. It’s easy to understand why. Setting The Stage Convertibles are not the roomiest or the most practical choice. In some cases, a convertible is usually “choppier” than ...

Let’s Talk About Six: Mazda Confirms New Inline Engine in Development

Much of the news surrounding Mazda this past year has concerned powerplants: a new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-banger for the CX-5 crossover and 6 sedan, a sort-of sparkless Skyactiv-X mill that still doesn’t have a North American arrival date, a lackluster diesel that took its sweet time getting here, and the brand’s continued lack of electric […] The post Let’s Talk About Six: Mazda Confirms New Inline Engine in Development appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Two Tribes: When a Suburban Crossover Owner Butts Heads With Urban/Environmental Advocates, Who Wins?

We drove a $40,000 Mazda CX-5 Turbo to see if it's the perfect compact SUV. Here's the verdict.

What it was like to own and drive a 'no-tech' car

Cars in 2019 are marvels of technology and connectedness. But just a few decades ago, there was very little connected tech in vehicles, prior to the advent of cellphones and the internet. Everything is easier — and safer! — now. But I miss the old days, when you could hit the road and disappear. These days, it's nearly impossible to get into a car and disconnect from the internet. New vehicles typically have some sort of smartphone interface (Apple CarPlay or Android Auto) or enable a certain...

We drove a $39,000 Toyota RAV4 and a $32,000 Subaru Forester to see which one is the better compact SUV. Here's the verdict.

The Toyota RAV4 and the Subaru Forester are two of the most popular compact SUVs in the US. Both compete against rivals like the   Honda   CR-V, the   Nissan   Rogue, the   Chevrolet   Equinox, the   Ford   Escape, and the Mazda   CX-5.

On ICE: Mazda’s Skyactiv-X Wonder Engine Isn’t in a Hurry to Get Stateside

Much-touted engines seem to take a while to arrive in North America, at least when it comes to Mazda. To the brand’s credit, those engines, at least in the case of the Skyactiv-D diesel, do eventually make it to these shores — though many wonder whether Mazda should have even bothered. The Skyactiv-X is a […] The post On ICE: Mazda’s Skyactiv-X Wonder Engine Isn’t in a Hurry to Get Stateside appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

12 Money Diarists Reflect On Their Most Expensive Purchases

As we know from Money Diaries, we all have our unique styles when it comes to saving and spending money.

The Mazda CX-5 Diesel’s Economic Case Is Nonexistent

Finally. Mazda’s promised diesel-powered CX-5 is now open for pre-order in the United States, years after we began chronicling the Skyactiv-D’s lethargic march to North America.

2019 Mazda CX-5 Signature – Inching Ever Closer to Perfection

Does a crossover really need to be good to drive, or is mere competence good enough to win buyers? Most carmakers settle for “good enough,” and yet they keep selling.

Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding

It seems the idea of a sport-utility sedan just doesn’t resonate, despite automakers’ best efforts. Oh well, at least there’s still the prospect of greater traction and somewhat improved fuel economy coming to Mazda’s slinky 6 sedan. During this week’s New York reveal of the much-delayed CX-5 diesel, the automaker mentioned that the 2.2-liter oil […] The post Diesel Engine, All-wheel Drive Coming to Mazda 6; No Word on Suspension Lift, Cladding appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mazda CX-5 Diesel: Giving Yourself the Skyactiv-D

Mazda has certainly bent over backwards to get its new diesel to the U.S. market. Originally slated to premiere inside the 2017 CX-5, Mazda’s Skyactiv-D failed to receive approval from the Environmental Protection Agency. We’ve followed the story for a while, including when it concerned the Mazda 6, sometimes wondering why the company would even bother pursuing […] The post Mazda CX-5 Diesel: Giving Yourself the Skyactiv-D appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
