QOTD: What Millennials Want? – The Truth About Cars

I can’t claim to know what Millennials want — I don’t consider myself a member of that particular cohort. Depending on the source, I’m either one year into that demographic or one year removed, but given that my circle of friends starts at about five years my junior and tops out at 20 years my senior, I’ll accept one older aquaintence’s assertion that I’m “the ragged edge of Generation X.” That said, social media makes one a sometimes unwilling observer…

2019 Hyundai Tucson Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2019 Hyundai Tucson might have been the infant in the South Korean automaker’s family if it weren’t for the arrival of the new 2018 Kona crossover. Now that it’s firmly in the middle of the SUV lineup at home, the Tucson clamors for attention this year with a new engine offering, some new technology and safety gear, and an interior that cribs from its smaller sibling. We haven’t driven it yet, but we think the upgraded Tucson will fare…

New BMW 8 Series 2019 review

Is it better to be brilliant at one thing, or pretty good at everything? BMW thinks the latter, based on its approach to the fresh 8 Series Coupe. The German firm reckons its all-new 8 Series, which will later spawn both Convertible and four-door Gran Coupe models, can compete with the Mercedes S-Class Coupe on the posh, cosseting side, yet square up to the Aston Martin DB11 for the sporty stuff. BMW’s latest all-rounder takes the form of a front-engined,…

Americans Suffer in Consumer Reports’ 2018 Brand Reliability Rankings

Consumer Reports has released its reliability rankings for automotive brands. The results, based on responses from half million of its readers, are about what you’d expect, with a few exceptions. Normally, reliability rankings don’t change all that much per annum. However, this year’s tally saw some surprising slippage from domestic brands that had performed rather well over the past few years. The biggest loser was Buick, which fell 11 spots in 2018. CR attributed it to lackluster performance from the redesigned Enclave.…

2019 Lexus RC Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2019 Lexus RC has a confusing naming structure, but is best served with either flavor of V-6 instead of the turbo-4. We’ve given it 7 out of 10 with special consideration for its handling and crisp steering. The RC F would earn another point for its strong, sonorous V-8. . (Read more about how we rate cars.) Confusingly, the base coupe was renamed RC 300 last year from 200, and is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 241…

First Drive: 2019 Chevrolet Malibu 1.5 CVT

The 2019 Chevrolet Malibu receives a light refresh, including a few appearance tweaks and some upgraded technology features. But the real news is the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that now comes paired with the base 1.5-liter engine. What’s the Big Deal? Well, the Malibu is the first CVT-equipped Chevy for sale to the public (the CVT was already available in some fleet vehicles), and CVTs themselves are a big deal because they tend to deliver more mpg, though typically…

2019 Hyundai Elantra Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

An edgy new look should help the 2019 Hyundai Elantra stand out in the compact car melange. That’s as long as shoppers can resist the temptation of high-riding crossover SUVs such as Hyundai’s own Tucson. We rate the Elantra at 5.6 out of 10 on its high-quality ride, its good value, and its above average fuel economy. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The Elantra sedan and Elantra hatchback share a name, but they’re distinctly different vehicles. Elantra sedans…

New Skoda Scala prototype review

Wrapped in a psychedelic disguise, and not due to be officially revealed until December, is Skoda’s answer to the Ford Focus and VW Golf. That’s a pretty core segment, you’re probably thinking, so why hasn’t Skoda already got such a model in its line-up? Well, it has, it’s called the Rapid and it is the least popular Skoda on sale in the UK today. This all-new version is designed to reverse that; the car is completely new from the ground up and its dramatic overhaul has…
