2020 Toyota Yaris XLE Sedan Review – Fare Thee Well

Just when Toyota’s Yaris finally adorned the name of a fun car, the brand kills it.

Outgoing Ford CEO Jim Hackett never won over Wall Street — but he triumphed in his fight to change the carmaker's culture (F)

Outgoing Ford CEO Jim Hackett endured a controversial, polarizing three years at the helm of the 117-year-old automaker. His vision was a tough sell on Wall Street, which sent the company's stock price down 40% during his tenure. But Hackett changed Ford's culture more than any CEO in its recent history, including Alan Mulally, who saw the company through the financial crisis.

Tesla has a huge lead over other automakers. See how the electric-car company's brand became so mighty. (TSLA)

For years, potential competitors kept an eye on Tesla as it absorbed all the risk of creating a viable market for electric vehicles. While the electric-vehicle market hovers in the single digits, the conventional wisdom was that Tesla would exhaust itself proving that consumers actually wanted to go electric. But with the EV market now poised to rapidly grow, Tesla finds itself with the most powerful brand, nurtured for more than a decade by charismatic, controversial CEO Elon Musk. Visit Busi...

Driving a new Honda CR-V Hybrid made me question my loyalty to my old Toyota RAV-4

I own a 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, and I love the crossover. But I recently drove a new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid. I really, really liked the CR-V Hybrid, now available in the US market. Here's the thing: I always like Hondas better than Toyotas — they're fun to drive. But I've often ended up buying Toyotas, and I think I'm going to stick with the RAV4, even though the CR-V is better. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

2021 Toyota Corolla Apex Edition: When You Want Sleek & Fun (But Still Gotta Be Practical)

The 2021 Toyota Corolla Apex Edition shows you that even cars as humble as the Corolla can hope to be something more. Sure, it will never be a total hypercar monster capable of turning the Earth underneath its wheels, but this version of Toyota’s venerable Corolla is at least trying. Obviously, calling it the “Apex Edition” tilts at what Toyota is going for here: A curve-carving machine that is fun to drive, yet still a practical sedan. Think of it as a modern Japanese version of an older BM...

2020 Ford Ranger Lariat Review: A Middle of The Road Midsize Truck

2020 Ford Ranger In Our Opinion: The 2020 Ford Ranger seems like its a little late to the party. There is nothing wrong with that, per se, as long as the entrance is grand. As Ford was prepping the Ranger, GM, Honda, and Toyota got a head start in the reemerging midsize truck market. After driving the 2019 Ranger last year when it was all-new, and now driving it again in 2020, we don't see the grand entrance we might have expected from Ford, especially for a truck. The Ranger isn't bad b...

2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited Review – A New Contender Emerges

The idea of Honda and Toyota slugging it out for midsize sedan supremacy, with every other contender — from the very good to the mediocre to the also-rans — fighting it out for sales scraps, is pretty much an auto-journalism cliché at this point.
