China’s New Volkswagen Passat Could Preview Upcoming U.S. Model

Volkswagen’s Passat has long been the choice for Euro-fetishists who believe themselves too good to purchase a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. That decision was easier to make in 2012, when VW moved 117,023 of them in the United States, diesel cars were still tolerated, and Japan had basically given up on styling its vehicles. But things are different now. Diesel might as well be a four-letter word when not affixed to trucks and Japan’s automakers have gone mental with their…

2019 Buick Regal Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2019 Buick Regal can be optioned up to include helpful features without breaking the bank. The Regal has value in the low-$30,000 range, and buyers have quite a few add-ons to choose from even then. We add points for its wide variety of available features, but ding it for a curiously limited base trim level. That brings it to a 5 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The 2019 Regal Sportback is offered in four…

New Ford Mustang Bullitt review

On the surface, the Ford Mustang Bullitt doesn’t appear to offer a whole lot extra above and beyond what you get from a standard V8 GT.

Not that there’s an awful lot wrong with that. • Best muscle cars of all time Look more closely, however, and there…

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric First Drive

Each successive car seems to have better performance, more practical packaging and, most critically, increased driving range. The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric is the latest to join the fray, and it raises the bar on just about all of these qualities. Doubts about range and a general lack of familiarity with the ins and outs of charging have dogged electric cars from the beginning. The original 2011…

Ferrari Seeks Patent for Elaborate Intake Amplification System

Ferrari has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a “device for the amplification of the intake sound” of an internal combustion engine. The system is a little different than the “Active Sound Design” populating many of today’s modern performance vehicles — a setup that involves piping in engine noises via the car’s sound system (à la BMW), through a speaker attached to the firewall (e.g. Volkswagen), or by redirecting some intake air through a diaphragm and…

Ford Talks Edge ST Strengths and Weaknesses

Last week, we gave you the lowdown on the new Ford Edge ST. The verdict, according to yours truly, was that it was miles ahead of the Sport trim is was replacing but had a few wrinkles that the manufacturer could stand to iron out. Since the ST occupies a place in the market that is entirely dominated by premium nameplates, these shortcomings were largely trivial. There’s less reason to gripe about its non-showy interior or high price tag when…
