2020 Subaru Outback Picks Up New Platform, Deep-sixes the Six

For 2020, Subaru’s revered Outback wagon undergoes a host of changes while remaining unmistakably an Outback. And, as New York is hardly the first locale that springs to mind when thinking “Outback,” Subaru decided to have the great outdoors accompany the next-generation wagon to this week’s auto show. The automaker brought both the Outback and […] The post 2020 Subaru Outback Picks Up New Platform, Deep-sixes the Six appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Tireside Chat: Talking Design With Nissan

Designing cars is a mix of art and science – and it’s about more than just looks. Especially when the brand you work for has a lot on its plate. In the past year, Nissan has launched all-new models that represent a departure from the past (Kicks), updated others significantly (Altima) and not so significantly […] The post Tireside Chat: Talking Design With Nissan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Thinking Small: 2020 Hyundai Venue Arrives in New York, Aims Directly at Millennials

Hyundai’s new Venue is not a large vehicle. At 158.9 inches in length, the sub-subcompact crossover is 5.1 inches shorter than the already petite Kona and 5.9 inches shorter than the Elantra GT. Despite its modest length, the upcoming 2020 Venue, pegged as a cheaper entry point to the Hyundai crossover lineup, doesn’t make many […] The post Thinking Small: 2020 Hyundai Venue Arrives in New York, Aims Directly at Millennials appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Baby Aviator: 2020 Lincoln Corsair Dials up the Panache

While Lincoln’s compact MKC crossover sold reliably following its mid-2014 introduction, the still-vulnerable brand couldn’t let it grow stale in a hotly competitive segment. Thanks to shrinking sedan sales, Lincoln took a sales hit in 2018 as it awaited salvation in the form of the midsize, rear-drive Aviator — a vehicle designed to add heavily […] The post Baby Aviator: 2020 Lincoln Corsair Dials up the Panache appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A Sentra by Another Name Appears in China

As journos pack themselves into cramped regional airliners headed for New York, Auto Shanghai 2019 is already delivering the goods, providing a taste of global-market vehicles to come. We showed you a brace of Buick Encores yesterday, but Tuesday brings another model destined to arrive on your doorstep, albeit with another name: the 2020 Nissan […] The post A Sentra by Another Name Appears in China appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

For the World, a New Buick Encore; For China, Two

General Motors’ best-selling Buick, the subcompact Encore, has a new face and body — and also a sibling. Both vehicles, each carrying the Encore name, saw the light of day Monday at Auto Shanghai, but only one will grace dealerships on this side of the Pacific. Buick is a big deal in China, and today […] The post For the World, a New Buick Encore; For China, Two appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Range Rover Evoque First Drive – Familiar yet New

The script for the first-gen Range Rover Evoque included downsizing the Discovery luxury experience to a compact size and extending the distinct styling and off-road capability the brand is known for. The first-generation Evoque came in two-door and four-door variants, followed by a two-door cabrio version. The second-gen Evoque follows the original script, but drops […] The post 2020 Range Rover Evoque First Drive – Familiar yet New appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2018 Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD Review – Double Take

One of my personal auto reviewer “rules” is that I try to test any vehicle I drove on a press junket later, at home, even if it’s months later (and even if it’s many months before I get around to writing about it). I do this because the potholed roads and unpredictable weather of the city […] The post 2018 Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD Review – Double Take appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Jetta GLI First Drive – Jetta, Enhanced

Volkswagen’s latest iteration of the Jetta is a well-rounded commuter car, but a tad boring. VW had an easy fix for that in mind – just implant the heart of the GTI hot hatch along with some Golf R bits. Boom, instant sports sedan. There’s been a GLI version of the Jetta since 1984, and […] The post 2019 Jetta GLI First Drive – Jetta, Enhanced appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Revealed: 2020 Ford Escape

Ford unveiled the all-new 2020 Escape in dramatic fashion by turning the fabulous Henry Ford Museum’s Greenfield Village into “Escapeville.” The automaker seated members of the media on bleachers, but in a moment of trickery, it turned out said bleachers were mobile (insert Jim Hackett “mobility” joke here), while the Escape drove forward from under […] The post Revealed: 2020 Ford Escape appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Jeep Gladiator First Drive – Getting What You Asked For

Jeep engineers and PR folks wasted no time in telling media, assembled in Sacramento to drive the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator mid-size pickup, that this truck is more than just a Wrangler with a pickup bed slapped on the back. Technically speaking, it’s true — there are key mechanical and structural differences. So no one […] The post 2020 Jeep Gladiator First Drive – Getting What You Asked For appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

EU to Require Speed-Limiting Tech in New Cars

Aimed at saving lives and preparing the general public for fully autonomous vehicles, the EU is en route to pass a measure that requires all new cars to be outfitted with speed-limiting features. According to a new study, the proposal will save around 25,000 lives and prevent 140,000 serious injuries. It won’t go into full effect until 2022, but the forthcoming years will be formative …

Just a Reminder That There’s a New Ford Escape Coming

Debuting in North America for the 2013 model year, the third-generation Ford Escape is getting long in the tooth, forced to compete against newer compact crossovers like the Chevrolet Equinox and Honda CR-V. Toyota’s RAV4 is all-new this year, too. And Dodge, well… Dodge still sells the Journey Abe Lincoln drove from rural Illinois to […] The post Just a Reminder That There’s a New Ford Escape Coming appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Dealers Share Details of Ford Bronco Prototype, New Off-road Vehicle Family

Dealers got an early look at a prototype build of the upcoming Ford Bronco. Gathered in Palm Beach, FL at the behest of the automaker, dealers were asked to hand over their phones in order to avoid any leaks. Fortunately, their memories were sufficient in giving us a better idea as to what to expect come […] The post appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Kia Telluride First Drive – Your Road Trip Awaits

Life is often a matter of timing. Ask Kia about the difference between the 2020 Kia Telluride crossover and its last attempt at something similar – the Kia Borrego. Remember the Borrego? I do. That body-on-frame SUV wasn’t a poor vehicle – I drove one, briefly, and liked it – but it came to market […] The post 2020 Kia Telluride First Drive – Your Road Trip Awaits appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

BMW Confirms 2 Series Gran Coupe For 2020

Having already provided Gran Coupe (fastback sedan) versions of the 4 and 6 Series, BMW is planning on doing the same for the “entry level” 2 Series. However, it doesn’t appear as though it will be based on the rear-drive 2 Series we’ve come to appreciate as the one of the best driving cars currently […] The post BMW Confirms 2 Series Gran Coupe For 2020 appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Porsche Sort of, Maybe Teases the Taycan

Even though Porsche’s September Taycan debut is set in stone, it just can’t help itself with the teasers. While the images probably won’t mirror the production version exactly (that paint job certainly won’t fly), Porsche seems to be implying the bodywork seen here is headed for the assembly line. From what we can see, there’s […] The post Porsche Sort of, Maybe Teases the Taycan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Porsche Taycan Timidly Teased Via New Design Sketches

While Porsche has already confirmed its first-ever all-electric model for a September debut, parading it around in Mission E guise, the production Taycan remains a bit of a mystery. Most, including yours truly, are under the assumption that the finished model won’t look all that different from the prototype (probably with a dash of Panamera).

Tesla Model Y: Industry Watchers Remain Cynical As Fans Gird Their Loins

Perhaps to give journalists a taste of what it’s like to be a Tesla reservation holder, Tesla’s Model Y launch event, scheduled for 11 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, started late. When it did, CEO Elon Musk launched into a rundown of his company’s well-documented history. There were a few admissions during his speech, including this […] The post Tesla Model Y: Industry Watchers Remain Cynical As Fans Gird Their Loins appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2018 Ford F-150 Platinum 4X4 SuperCrew – Power Cruising

Part of the appeal of pickup trucks is that they can be many things to many people. Tow machine to haul your boat? Check. Home-improvement aid? Sure, throw those 2x4s in the back. Guarantee that your friends will call you when they need help moving, even if they never call you any other time? Sure.

In The Key of H: Hyundai Sings a New Sonata

Korean’s automaker is known for many things, not the least of which is providing a great feature-to-dollar ratio.

Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept Could Preview Next Crosstrek

Subaru has unveiled yet another concept wearing the Viziv name. This time it’s called the “Adrenaline” and appears to foreshadow the next Crosstrek. Styling is suitably wild for a show vehicle, but enough of Subaru’s current design language remains to make us believe the model isn’t terribly far away from a production model. However, no […] The post Subaru Viziv Adrenaline Concept Could Preview Next Crosstrek appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Mazda CX-3 Too Small? Try the CX-30 on for Size

As promised, Mazda threw the sheets off its mystery vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing a small crossover that’s not too small. The brand’s CX-3 often earns gripes for its diminutive size and limited interior volume, not to mention its middling ground clearance, but until today there was nothing to bridge the gap between CX-3 […] The post Mazda CX-3 Too Small?

Tesla’s $35K Model 3 Arrives Fashionably Late

The $35,000 Model 3 is here. Fittingly, perhaps, it’s three years late. Tesla has promised a $35,000 version of the Model 3 since announcing the car in 2016, but the company focused on more-expensive variants at first to help get the model off the ground without tanking the company in the process. It needed the […] The post Tesla’s $35K Model 3 Arrives Fashionably Late appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Polestar 2 Debut: China’s Response to the Tesla Model 3

Polestar, Volvo’s former performance division (which parent company Geely insisted be spun off as its own electric car brand), announced its second automobile on Wednesday. Whereas the Polestar 1 was a 600-horsepower hybrid coupe, Polestar 2 adds a set of rear doors and does away with internal combustion altogether.

2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI Autobahn Review – All-around Virtue, or the Auto Journalist’s Perfect Car

There’s a reason why the Volkswagen Golf GTI is fetishized by journalists and enthusiasts as perhaps the perfect daily-driver sporty car. Because if it isn’t, it’s damn near close. Changes for 2018 were minimal. The 2018 got a mild standard horsepower bump (assuming you’re using premium fuel) to 220, up from 210.

2020 Toyota Corolla Sedan & Hybrid – Finally Getting Cheerful

I had a nickname for the Toyota Corolla once. Back in my days as an overly judgmental prepubescent teenage boy, I used to call Toyota’s honest economy car the “Crapolla.” Growing up in an affluent North Jersey neighborhood in the ‘90s, everyone and their mother had a Bimmer, Benz, or even a Bentley.
