2019 Hyundai Veloster N

We came here to test drive the next step in Hyundai’s future, the 2019 Veloster N. As one executive said, “it is a racing car that we’re trying to sell to the public.” What Hyundai is also doing is expanding ...

2019 Lexus UX 200 and 250h

Lexus is a conservative auto brand but it seems to have thrown that philosophy out the door when it comes to its new UX small crossover. First the UX is the luxury brand’s fifth and smallest CUV. They account for ...

2019 Volvo S60

One of the first things a Volvo executive told us was that this is a “huge moment for us.” He was talking about the 2019 Volvo S60 luxury sports sedan. I could not agree more. Yes the car is important, ...

2018 Kia Cadenza

Kia didn’t make many changes to the 2018 Cadenza. In a way, they didn’t need to; the mini full-size sedan didn’t need much. They did what they called some “minor packaging enhancements.” The V6 luxury package now includes the panoramic ...

2018 Hyundai Accent

The 2018 Hyundai Accent was a pleasant surprise. It was a subcompact sedan with a manual transmission. Normally, I’d say that would make it boring. But the Accent had some spunk. Powered by a 1.6-liter direct injected four cylinder engine ...

2018 Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is the automaker’s bestselling model and after a week test driving the 2018 version, it is easy to see why. The CX-5 is basic in what it does but it performed excellently. Acceleration was great. Under the ...

2018 Genesis G90 AWD 3.3T

The 2018 Genesis G90 still draws lots of attention. During my test drive I answered so many questions about the car that they kind of caught me off guard. Two guys even pulled up next to me and shouted “what ...

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

There was a time that Mitsubishi was the technology leader of all the Asian brands and back then that meant Japanese automakers. But bad business decisions disrupted the automaker’s sound footing and put it at risk. Now the company is ...

2019 Kia Forte

The new Kia Forte flies in the face of the market. It is a compact sedan in a sea of crossovers. However, from 2013 to 2017, Forte sales almost doubled. So there is little choice but to give buyers what ...

2018 Toyota C-HR

Smooth, really smooth is what I first thought of Toyota’s C-HR. And after one week of test driving, my opinion did not change. This small crossover from Toyota had a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine under the hood that made 144 ...

2018 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD Inscription

I turned onto McNichols Street headed west quicker than I should have. A minivan coming my way was just too close, about a half block away, but I did it anyway. That’s because I knew my 2018 Volvo XC60 could ...

2018 Subaru Impreza Sport

I was given the choice of test driving a Subaru Impreza equipped with either a continuously variable transmission or one with a manual gearbox. I chose the manual and I’m glad I did. The car was powered by a 2.0 ...

2018 Kia Rio 5DR

Kia tinkered with the 2018 Rio 5Dr; and the moderate changes were definitely for the better. First, 5DR is code for hatchback; that fifth door is the tailgate. The Kia Rio 5-door is now 160.0 inches long, up from 159.4 ...
