Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan

The Subaru Impreza has been with us since the 1993 model year, and you’ll still see plenty of the first-generation Impreza Outback wagons on the streets (and in the junkyards) of Colorado. All US-market Subarus got all-wheel-drive starting in the 1997 model year, so the company’s American marketers had to show a distinction between the […] The post Junkyard Find: 2002 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Cadenza? We Hardly Knew Ya!

Say so long to the Kia Cadenza and K900 sedans. Cause of death: Poor sales secondary to the crossover craze and the existence of the Genesis luxury brand. The K900 luxury flagship and Cadenza large sedan will be no more following the 2021 model year, but fret not Kia sedan fans — the K5, Forte, […] The post Cadenza?

Rare Rides: The Lincoln Continental From 2002, Nicest-ever Taurus

Today we take a look at the early 2000s Lincoln Continental. A generation of Continental that didn’t know what it wanted to be, we can take comfort in the knowledge it was at least a nice Taurus. The Continental name had a long and storied history at Lincoln. It debuted as a luxurious coupe and […] The post Rare Rides: The Lincoln Continental From 2002, Nicest-ever Taurus appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part II)

In Part I of this two-parter we were introduced to the J30, Infiniti’s luxurious new sports sedan for the Nineties. Having learned from their Q45 mistakes, the brand was determined their new mid-sizer would be appealable to the American Market. So what went wrong? Let’s find out. Like its predecessor the M30, the J30 was […] The post Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part II) appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part I)

The other day while we were reviewing the daringly spectacular first generation Q45, commenter SSJeep requested coverage of Infiniti’s other rear-drive sedan from the period, the J30. I thought Rare Rides already covered Infiniti’s mid-size offering, but it turned out I was remembering an installment of Buy/Drive/Burn. That means it’s time for J30. At launch, […] The post Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part I) appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

We’ve Heard this Incorrect Forecast Before: Honda Believes in 2022 Civic Because “Passenger Cars are Going to Stabilize”

As Toyota approached the launch of the all-new, 2018 Toyota Camry in mid-2017, the automaker telegraphed its intentions very plainly. “I think you’re going to see the entire sedan market pick up,” then vice-president Jack Hollis said. “We want the new Camry to rehabilitate the segment,” Toyota’s Moritaka Yoshida said at the time. Toyota wasn’t alone. […] The post We’ve Heard this Incorrect Forecast Before: Honda Believes in 2022 Civic Because “Passenger Cars are Going to Stabilize” appeared firs...

Volkswagen Passat Receives Date of Execution; VW Shifts Production Power Away From Lame Sedan

It’s been five weeks since I opined VW should cancel the Arteon and the North American Passat, and replace both with the European Passat instead. Late last week, Volkswagen complied with part of my request. They must read TTAC! As reported by Ward’s Auto, the Passat will exit Volkswagen’s North American lineup after the 2023 […] The post Volkswagen Passat Receives Date of Execution; VW Shifts Production Power Away From Lame Sedan appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Rare Rides: The 1990 Audi V8 Quattro, First Time Full-size Failure

In our last Rare Rides, we discussed how the W126 S-Class established the model as a default for the large German sedan shopper. I also referenced the failed attempt at S-Class competition which was the Audi V8 Quattro. So today let’s expound upon that failure a bit. Prior to the V8 Quattro, Audi had built […] The post Rare Rides: The 1990 Audi V8 Quattro, First Time Full-size Failure appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

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...

2022 Genesis G70 Redefined by Refresh

Genesis has predictably brought the G70 onboard with the rest of its lineup’s familial styling. Fortunately, the look the company has gone for has successfully merged disparate concepts by being both spectacular and incredibly tasteful. While your author would have argued that prior Genesis models had aped German exteriors so effectively that they might actually […] The post 2022 Genesis G70 Redefined by Refresh appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2020 Lexus ES300h Review – The Relentless Pursuit of Fuel Economy

Sedans continue to take up a significant chunk of the marketplace, but with the ever-evolving and more functional crossover SUV becoming less compromised in terms of efficiency and safety, the crossover sales takeover continues. That said, lighter-weight sedans, especially hybrids, can still net you some fuel savings. To wit – the 2020 Lexus ES300h.

Daimler Promises Digital Perfection With 2021 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The S-Class has always been the sparkling sapphire in Daimler’s crown.

Volkswagen Reportedly Allows Passat to Live

When we last checked in on the Volkswagen Passat, the manufacturer was rumored to be considering removing the model from its production lineup.

QOTD: A Hero Behind Each Door?

Movies and television have delivered countless heroes and villains, more than a few femme fatales of dubious loyalty, and still more ethically challenged antiheroes. Quite often, they do not take public transportation.

Fresh Venom? Updated Kia Stinger Debuts Overseas

Everyone’s favorite rear-drive South Korean liftback sedan, the Kia Stinger stands to gain a refresh for the coming year.

Security bugs let these car hackers remotely control a Mercedes-Benz

Few could ever forget back in 2015 when security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek remotely killed a Jeep’s engine on a highway with a Wired reporter at the wheel. Since then, the car hacking world has bustled with security researchers looking to find new bugs — and ways to exploit them — in a new wave of internet-connected cars that have only existed the past decade. This year’s Black Hat security conference — albeit virtual, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic — is no different. Secu...

QOTD: Is There a Ford in Your Past?

Achingly simple question today, folks. With the demise of the Ford Fusion last week, the Blue Oval now fields zero domestic four-door sedans, leaving buyers to choose instead among a bevy of trucks and utility vehicles. It’s the first time since 1908 that the automaker hasn’t built a U.S. passenger car with four doors (earlier […] The post QOTD: Is There a Ford in Your Past? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

New Life for the Shrinking Nissan Maxima?

Nissan’s future will not see it become everything to everyone, and certainly not in all markets. The 2010s, and the market share-chasing, globe-straddling expansionism that characterized that decade’s car-buying orgy, are violently over. Also soon to be over, apparently, is the Nissan Maxima’s gasoline-powered powertrain. The large-ish Nissan sedan’s fate has been the subject of […] The post New Life for the Shrinking Nissan Maxima? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

There’s an all-new Hyundai Elantra arriving for 2021, and not a moment too soon.
