New Volvo S60 2019 review

Volvo sold just 1,250 S60s in the UK last year, but has huge hopes that this new model, spun off the back of the sumptuous V60 estate, will step up to the mark in a big way when it lands in spring 2019. Significantly higher sales in Britain are targeted and globally this is a huge model for the brand, being the first car built at Volvo’s new Charleston factory in the United States, and squaring-up directly against big hitters…

2019 Jaguar I-Pace Delivered Early to Average American Family

Jaguar has delivered its first I-Pace electric crossover in North America, a little ahead of next month’s retail sales, to a picture-perfect family living in Florida. Who are these fortunate environmentalists? None other than Lakewood Ranch residents Mark and Holly Pascarella, according to Jaguar Land Rover’s Tuesday press release and the multitude of auto outlets that reported it as news without commentary. “When you have a family of five you always need space, so we were looking for an SUV,” explained Mr. Pascarella.…

Goodyear to sell tires direct to consumers, offer mobile installation

The four tire stores in the Washington, D.C., area that Goodyear opened on Monday share little other than the smell of fresh rubber with typical greasy auto repair shops. The new Roll by Goodyear stores aren’t just different looking, with their minimalist, Apple Store-like decor. Goodyear says they’re one cog in a series of new ways drivers can buy the company’s tires. MORE: Winter tires are smart thinking Goodyear will eventually sell tires on a dedicated Roll by Goodyear website…

BMW X2 vs Volkswagen T-Roc

Sporty crossovers are about the most popular sector of the market right now. Every manufacturer has one in its line-up and as petrol power becomes more prevalent, too, more potent, driver-focused versions of these SUVs are gaining traction. Two of the newest on sale are the Volkswagen T-Roc 2.0 TSI R-Line and the BMW X2 20i in M Sport guise. Both of these cars are targeting the same group of buyers, and their closely matched price tags demonstrate this. As…

2019 McLaren 600LT First Drive: Light Fantastic

Six-hundred LT – that’s Longtail in McLaren-speak, which, if you’ve got your history books out, you’ll recognize from the iconic  F1 GTR Longtail. There have been others – notably the 675 LT – but the LT name is derived from that Le Mans legend, and we’ll never tire of seeing it  in the press presentation. 
Nor will we ever argue with what the original Longtail represents. When you think Longtail, think distilled: More purity thanks to less weight, more power, better…

Ace of Base: 2019 Kia Forte FE

Yes, yes, yes. This marks the second week in a row for the same manufacturer, almost as long a stretch as Khabib Nurmagomedov has gone without scaling the wall of a UFC cage. The little Forte sedan (remember those? Ford doesn’t) ups its game in 2019 with a refreshed sense of style and a bucket full of new equipment. This is most definitely our first Ace of Base that includes dual-zone climate control as standard equipment. Those who are un-wowed…

2019 Mazda CX-3 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

With a price tag that ranges from $21,000 to more than $28,000, the 2019 Mazda CX-3 toes the brand’s budget-crossover line. It does so better at the cheap end of the spectrum. We rate it a 6 for features. Mazda fits the base CX-3 with the right stuff, and the hatchback’s a good value, but its infotainment system is finicky. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The base CX-3 Sport comes with just about everything we think is necessary…

Skoda Karoq SE L: long-term test review

Mileage: 1,617Economy: 36.5mpg CLANG! Our Skoda Karoq has picked up a battle scar. A Ford S-MAX driver at an adjacent fuel station pump carelessly swung a door open and left a small round dent on the rear passenger door of our Skoda. It’s one of those you’d never spot if you didn’t know about it, but since we know it’s there the little dimple is forever catching the eye. That mishap aside, it’s been plain sailing for the Karoq. The 1.5 TSI…
