The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class hides a secret. As its name suggests, the 2020 GLB slots alphabetically in the Mercedes lineup between the GLA and the GLC. But, the GLB offers a third row of seats that opens it up to seven passengers—its bigger and smaller siblings have room for just five. We give it a

The 2020 Honda Fit is a versatile and relatively fun hatchback with impressive features and capability. The 2020 Honda Fit is a spacious small hatchback that’s thrifty, affordable, and safe. It’s not as fun as in years past, and its inexpensive-looking cabin underscores its economy-car status.  We rate it 5.8 out of 10 overall. (Read

While the 2020 Nissan Murano is relatively well-equipped, it loses some ground in the execution of those features for 6 out of 10 in this category.  The Murano range includes four trim levels, including S, SV, SL, and Platinum. The base S model includes 18-inch alloys, cloth upholstery, two front and two rear USB charging

The Tesla Model 3 Performance is unlike any other car we have tested before. Back in September, we spent an enjoyable weekend behind the wheel of this all-electric performance machine and walked away very impressed. It offers superb performance at a great price and is a very compelling package. Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire

If the CR-V is too small and the Pilot is too big, Honda’s punched your ticket with the 2020 Passport.  For 2020, the Honda Passport doesn’t stray far from the crossover that was new last year. In fact, nothing’s changed. It’s kind of a theme with the Passport—it’s closely related to the Pilot, minus a

There’s no “wrong” way to configure the 2020 Volvo S90. It’s simply a matter of how much money you’re willing to spend.  The S90 offers robust base features, a good infotainment system, and superlative trims that rival anything from Germany—at nearly any price. We give it an 8 out of 10 for features, and that’s

The 2020 BMW 4-Series has us all tied up, and that’s before we’ve taken any turns. What’s likely to be its last year in the current iteration, the two-door coupe and convertible, and five-door hatchback (which BMW calls a Gran Coupe) earn a 6.0 on our overall scale. That rating is based on the 430i

It would be a shame if the 2020 Ford Ranger were lumped into a category to include “all trucks.”  The 2020 Ranger is not a diesel-swilling, lifted, train-sized hauler that hardly fits in your driveway. The Ranger is not a profane sticker with a comic character or an ill-advised tattoo.  The Ranger isn’t faultless, but

The 2020 Kia Soul hatchback scopes in its target audience by aiming at the fringes. Outre style, light-up speakers, and a low price speak to periphery shoppers who don’t mind trading style for substance. The Soul’s secret? Its hatchback practicality, fuel-efficient powertrains, and quiet ride are right down Broadway for many buyers. This year, the

The 2020 Audi A7 strikes an enviable balance between luxury, performance, practicality, and style. Moreover, with its 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain, the A7 is even somewhat frugal. It is the automotive equivalent of a German chocolate cake that’s made out of vegetables, albeit one procured from a pricey artisan bakery and not Safeway. We score the

The 2020 X3 offers thrilling performance in top trims, but even the base car is noteworthy.  Starting from an average score of 5, the 2020 X3 gets points above average for a good ride and powertrains that range from very good to excellent. It’s an 8 out of 10.  The base engine is a 248-hp

The 2020 Lexus IS is polished and poised, but ultimately short on compelling qualities. The 2020 Lexus IS was once a gym rat, but its consistent routine means its predominantly European competition has bypassed this once-compelling four-door compact sedan. The allure of a decent value and the option of a strong, smooth V-6 engine don’t

Even if the 2020 Hyundai Palisade’s best feature is its available space, none of the big crossovers are poorly equipped. Hyundai offers the Palisade in SE, SEL, and Limited varieties with top models piling on luxury features. All are equipped with at least an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, active safety

Volkswagen’s big bet on its electric future has left present models like the 2020 VW Passat in limbo.  This year, the mid-size sedan gets an exterior makeover and a streamlined powertrain menu. It costs less than $24,000 in base versions, which is a value for shoppers replacing family vehicles, but the rest of the Passat
