The 2020 Tesla Model 3 sedan was never going to be palatial, but we can’t help but be disappointed by the lapses in material and build quality. Those flaws cancel out the roomy cabin and comfortable seats, bringing our total score to a 4 out of 10.  Appropriate for a car that sells on efficiency,

While the infotainment used to be a big drag on the Q60’s spec sheet, the wait for a better system is finally over. Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are now available, which is a huge plus. In the end, it’s a wash for the Q60 at 6 for features.  The lack of simple smartphone integration

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Jaguar F-Pace SVR are two of the most remarkable performance SUVs on the market and TheStraightPipes recently drove the two back-to-back. The straight-line performance advantage clearly goes to the Trackhawk. Jeep’s most crazed Grand Cherokee features FCA’s iconic 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine and churns out no less than

Few cars are as significant as the Tesla Model S hatchback. The venerable Tesla model didn’t just advance electric cars, it also propelled electric cars past being a shrugged-off science experiment. Once the Model S passes into history, its name will rightly join the ranks of other seminal automobiles that dramatically and permanently altered the

For 2020, the Volvo S60 comes standard with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a tablet-oriented 9.0-inch Sensus infotainment system. Other standard features, such as a panoramic moonroof, offers built-in value compared to other luxury automakers.  We give it an 8 out of 10 for its standard and optional equipment, as well as the vertical

The 2021 Kia Seltos expands a family of crossover SUVs that now includes the Sportage, Sorento, and Telluride. It’s the smallest of the bunch, roughly the size of the Hyundai Kona, but the 2021 Seltos has a few features and touches to call its own. Kia will sell the 2021 Seltos from early 2020, in

This year the F-Type pares back its powertrain lineup to just the essentials. The coupe or convertible is available with a turbo-4, or either a supercharged V-6 or V-8 with increasing spiciness up the ladder.  The good news among all three: each is fire-breathing in their own right, with plenty of exhaust crackles and pops

The 2020 Acura RLX is often overlooked by luxury sedan shoppers, but its merits shine through for those who do some digging. For its potent hybrid option, great safety record, and relative value, we give it 6.7 out of 10 overall. (Read more about how we rate cars.) For 2020, the RLX is unchanged from

The 2020 Kia K900 has all the luxury-sedan charms a four-door can muster—but it’s still a relative unknown. Perhaps the only reason it’s not immensely popular with buyers is the three-letter badge on the hood. With its top-notch quality, amply strong powertrain, and relative value, we give it 7.4 out of 10 overall. (Read more

The 2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport is well-equipped as standard, but some key features are extra that we’d like to see included. For that and its quickly climbing price, we give it 7 out of 10 here, mostly due to a decent infotainment system and options list. The base Discovery Sport comes with all-wheel drive,

The refresh of the minivan includes tweaks to the front and rear styling, a better infotainment system, more storage, and more standard safety features. Chrysler hasn’t said how much the

The 2020 Jaguar E-Pace is well-equipped as standard, but it’s easy to spend thousands more on top-tier models. We give it 8 out of 10 as such, with points for Jaguar’s excellent warranty coverage, good infotainment, and good standard equipment. Available in five standard trims and a new special edition, there’s no shortage of E-Pace

Like a featherweight champion, the 2020 Subaru BRZ proves lighter and smaller can sometimes be superior. Sports cars haven’t always been about power and prestige. In another era light weight and balance reigned over horsepower. The 2020 Subaru BRZ throws back to that era, and impresses with its sharp moves and looks, though the diminutive

The 2020 Toyota 86 is a driver-focused sports car in an era that’s nearly passed it by. Its humble power output, aging platform, and small stature keep it out of the pantheon of all-time great sport coupes—but those looking for an affordable and fun-to-drive sports car need look no further. We give it 5.8 out

VW’s biggest people mover gets its most substantial update since it arrived on the streets. With the 2021 Atlas, Volkswagen has two crossovers: a three-row Atlas and two-row Atlas Cross Sport. Both crossovers share many similarities, including powertrains and available features.  Much like their namesake, the crossovers carry a large burden to attract family shoppers
