The 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with decent safety features and the latest convenience features, such as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. But upgrades such as a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, synthetic leather seats, heated front seats, and adaptive cruise control aren’t made available until the mid-grade LT trim, which at about $25,000 starts to

Performance is why you’re here and if it’s not, it should be. The 2021 Challenger mostly sings the same tune as years before and its key is a low-octave V-8 rumble. It’s an 8 for performance based on the most popular engine configuration, which is a 5.7-liter V-8. If it were rated on what’s possible,

We give the 2021 RDX a 7 for features. In base form it’s well-equipped, and Acura has a relatively long options list. We’re no fans of its balky infotainment touchpad, which costs it an extra point for otherwise strong infotainment. The base RDX comes in just below $40,000—another $2,000 if you want all-wheel drive. It

If big is better, then the redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe betters what it’s been. The full-size SUV expands in length, cargo room, and third-row passenger room to seat up to eight passengers in comfort, abetted by a softer suspension setup.  Built on the Silverado pickup truck platform and mechanically similar to the larger 2021 Chevy

The 2021 Honda Passport punches a ticket for drivers who think the three-row Pilot’s for big families and the smaller CR-V’s for couch potatoes. With the Passport, Honda trims the Pilot’s fat and delivers a five-seat, two-row crossover SUV that’s not quite hardcore, but picks up its off-road game to square off against cars like

The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan plays the numbers. Its 185.1-inch body is larger than most of its compact crossover competitors. It has a cavernous, 37.6 cubic foot cargo hold and room for up to seven in its conservatively styled confines. It costs less than $27,000 to start and all-wheel drive, which VW calls “4Motion,” is available

Pert and perky, the 2021 Honda HR-V is no lumbering SUV; it’s hardly a crossover, though its front-wheel-drive hatchback essentials can be fortified with all-wheel drive. The 2021 HR-V carries over from the year before unchanged, but it’s alone at the bottom of the Honda lineup now that the Fit has been canceled. With the

The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is a full-time four-wheel-drive icon with a handful of luxury touches. The Toyota Land Cruiser SUV is an icon. Its go-anywhere, haul-anything attitude is a direct link between utility vehicles from the past and modern luxury SUVs of today. It’s nostalgic and useful in all the right ways, but it’s

If the DOT hadn’t invented double-yellow lines, the Honda CR-V would have been a great marker for the middle of the road. Honda fits the CR-V crossover with either a 1.5-liter turbo-4, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and front- or all-wheel drive—or a hybridized version, with electric motor and battery grafted on to a non-turbo-4.

The hills are calling and the 2021 Toyota 4Runner is ready to answer the call. This year, the 4Runner returns with a new special edition but not much else has changed from last year. The blocky, off-road SUV earns a 5.2 TCC Rating. Its capability and style give it some legs, but outdated safety scores

Roughly one month after production of the long-awaited Aston Martin DBX commenced, Harry Metcalfe has had the opportunity to test the performance-focused SUV. Aston Martin has spent roughly five years making the DBX a reality, and its future arguably rests on the DBX’s shoulders. Power is supplied by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 sourced from Mercedes-AMG

The difference in Performance and Long Range trims mostly comes down to performance, not features. But with an evolutionary infotainment system, over-the-air updates that keep the car as fresh as a smartphone, and good standard equipment, we give it an 8 out of 10.  The most noticeable feature spans overhead. A tinted glass roof stretches

When thinking about certain modern classics, nostalgia tends to hit like a train. And it’s even worse whenever you’re out driving, because it seems like there’s a BMW 3-Series E46 around every corner, and practically every petrolhead loves an M3 from that very same generation. Depending on the model, miles and overall condition, the best

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata banks on fewer rivals competing for buyers of mid-size sedans. The way it’s chosen to surface in the still-congested group: dramatic flair, along with lots of features and value. With the Sonata, Hyundai’s shaped a silhouette with luxury overtones, crafted a cabin with the same, and stocked it all with some

Hyundai offers the 2021 six different ways, but smart buyers will stay tuned to the middle versions. Based on those models, we give the Tucson a 9 for features, with points for its value, warranty, infotainment, and standard features. The $24,840 Tucson SE offers the lower-output engine, cloth upholstery, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with

Cadillac’s three-row hauler not called “Escalade” returns this year for family shoppers. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 adds a turbo-4 engine on lower trims for a lower entry price and wireless smartphone compatibility. We rate it at 7.0 overall, which is buoyed by good safety scores and good room inside. Three-row competitors are all elbows these

The 2021 Hyundai Kona would like your attention, please. Now. It’s a small crossover SUV with economy-car roots, but the 2021 Kona has fancy hardware, from all-wheel drive to a dual-clutch transmission to an all-electric companion—and it’s all wrapped in a shape that demands you notice it.  Sold in SE, SEL, Ultimate, and Limited versions—and

The Palisade may not offer many options—packages are the way to gain features, take them all or leave them—but it runs the table on features. For its warranty, value, infotainment, and standard gear, we give it a 9. Whether it’s a Palisade SE, SEL, Limited, or Calligraphy, Hyundai’s largest crossover comes with active safety features,
