The 2020 Subaru WRX is a familiar friend, and not just because the current model has been around for seven model years. With its sharp reflexes, turbo thrust, spacious interior, and occasional rough edge, the WRX is a go-to flannel shirt that just fits and seems to get better every time it’s run through another

In its base form or its high-performance guise, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia quick and agile sport sedan that is always fun to drive. We rate it an 8 out of 10 for its especially quick steering, ready power, and agile moves. The Guilia Quadrifoglio would rate even higher if we rated it separately. Alfa

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is one of the broadest of any vehicle, from its three body styles to its nine trims and powertrain options. We give it 8 out of 10 as such, and feel compelled to not that its warranty coverage is competitive, but not game-changing. The “entry level” S450 starts at $95,245

Though down a couple of trim options and a few hundred dollars more expensive this year, the 2020 Honda Ridgeline is better equipped than ever, but still pricey at the top end. (Read more about how we rate cars.) For 2020, the Ridgeline drops the base RT and mid-tier RTL-T trims, leaving just four: Sport,

The 2020 BMW X2 trades utility for styling compared to the related X1. The 2020 BMW X2 is the most style-oriented bite-size luxury-brand SUV, but it’s largely in a class of one. There’s a reason you don’t see many on the road: paying more for less doesn’t have wide appeal. For those willing to trade

The 2020 Audi TT delivers performance on a minimalist scale, with a minimalist look. The 2020 Audi TT balances style and performance like few cars on the road. The well-proportioned car is a blast to drive in any configuration, though the best of this lineup is arguably the mid-level TTS. If you happen to have

The 2020 Jaguar F-Type has a feature list that’s nearly as long as its hood, but we’ll break it down for you here. We give it 8 out of 10 for its standard gear, infotainment, options, and excellent and extensive warranty.  To start, all F-Types get 10-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto,

Ford’s venerable workhorse heavy-duty pickup truck gets a fresh face and new off-road package this year to compete with newer rivals from Ram and General Motors. With the 2020 Super Duty, Ford has a lineup of three-quarter and one-ton pickups that span an impressive range from work-ready tools to tony trucks tricked with tech, leather,

Small crossovers like the 2020 Hyundai Venue now have a big stage.  With the Venue, Hyundai has fielded a smaller companion to its own Kona crossover, not to mention an urban runabout five-door hatchback that fits neatly in the shadow cast by its big new Palisade. Sold in SE and SEL editions, the 2020 Venue

Even with a slew of features ranging from the technologically advanced to the sumptuously pampered, and an excellent warranty with service plan, the 2020 BMW 8-Series is not a value, in coupe, convertible, Gran Coupe, or M variants.  Upstart makes such as Genesis and even the gorgeous interiors of Mercedes-Benz have proven that luxury and

Starting at $65,295 (including $995 destination) and ranging to nearly $120,000 with the X6 M Competition, the 2020 BMW X6 comes well-equipped and has more options than a hall of mirrors. The X6 M50i offers the best of the value and performance worlds, and with standard all-wheel drive it is our recommended X6.  All X6s

The 2020 Lexus UX is a spacious, fuel-efficient crossover SUV with standout styling. Edgy styling isn’t the only thing that makes the 2020 Lexus UX stand out in the fiercely competitive field of luxe-lite small crossovers.  The 2020 UX is a strong choice for those with the budget, if not necessarily the garage space, for

Toyota’s range is no longer dominated by boring, bland, and uninspiring cars like it used to be, and the 2020 Avalon TRD is certainly one of the most ‘out-there’ performance cars the carmaker produced in recent memory. The sedan, introduced last year, is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine also found in the Camry

Once cutting edge, the 2020 BMW i3 has fallen well behind other electric cars. Only purists need apply. The 2020 BMW i3 was a bold choice among plug-in hybrids when launched, but other electric cars have since rendered it a tough sell. For those intrigued by its style and its sublime interior, the 2020 i3

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class replaces the outgoing CLA as the least expensive new car available from the brand. The A-Class is better than the old CLA, and it’s less expensive: win-win.  It’s an 8 on our features scale for good standard items and a good touchscreen infotainment system. The standard warranty on all A-Class models

The 2021 GMC Yukon is a full-size SUV from the truckmaker and its biggest to date. It’s new for the 2021 model year and its changes represent the largest shift for the brute ‘ute in more than a decade.  Like the outgoing model, the 2021 Yukon is available in standard or long-wheelbase configuration, the latter
