2020 Buick Encore GX Review: Small But Substantial

2020 Buick Encore GX Review: Small But Substantial
Not too long ago, I spent a week driving the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer and rather enjoyed the little crossover. Now, I’ve taken some time to test out the Trailblazer’s cousin, the Buick Encore GX. The two vehicles share a platform, drivetrain, and other core attributes, but each model has decidedly different aesthetics, and the Buick gets access to a few additional tech features not found on the Chevy.

2020 Genesis G90 3.3T Premium Review: Grand Lux, Korean Style
When it comes to luxury cars, most people mention brands like Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and BMW. Hyundai spin-off Genesis hopes to gain the same kind of brand cache in the minds of luxury buyers, and with excellent vehicles like the G70 and G80 to their name, I think they’ve got a good shot at just that.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport V6 4Motion Review: Cross, Yes. Sport, No.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport V6 4Motion Review: Cross, Yes. Sport, No.
If one statement holds true in the auto industry, it’s that adding the word “Sport” to a vehicle doesn’t make it a sporty vehicle. Case in point: The 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Pitched as a smaller, sportier sibling to the three-row VW Atlas, this crossover-style SUV still feels big, heavy, and clunky, even if it does look a little more sporty than its bigger brother.

2020 Mazda CX-30 Premium Review: Small Crossover Goes Zoom Zoom
If there are two underlying things I can say about every single Mazda you can buy today, it’s that they all have a great, consistent design language, and they’re all fun to drive. Now, not a single one is a horsepower beast, but they’re all engaging, with a good connection between the driver and the vehicle.

2020 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Review: A Sophisticated and Efficient Sedan
Despite any rumors that sedans are going away, the 4-door passenger car is alive and well, and as far as I’m concerned, better than ever when it comes to the current selection – especially when it comes to the mid-size segment.

2020 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X Review: It’s All About the Drivetrain

2020 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X Review: It’s All About the Drivetrain
Let’s face it. The Nissan Frontier isn’t exactly a modern truck. The current model been largely the same since it first came out all the way back in 2005. Nissan has indicated that a complete redesign is in the works for 2021, but the 2020 model does have a big difference that previews the new truck, and that’s its engine and transmission.

RAV4 Prime Price: Not Bad for a 302hp AWD PHEV
I’m already a fan of the current Toyota RAV4. It’s quite good in both its gas and hybrid versions, and represents a major upgrade over the previous generation, both aesthetically and functionally. So when Toyota announced it was working on a plug-in hybrid version of the RAV4 that made 302 horsepower, my curiosity was definitely piqued.

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert

2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave Review: Plenty of Fun, Even without a Desert
When the Jeep Gladiator came out last year, it marked the first time Jeep had made a pickup truck in decades. Until now, the most capable version you could buy has been the Rubicon. That’s still the case if you’re planning on crawling slowly over rocks and steep grades, but if you’re looking for a Gladiator that can tackle sand dunes, undulating hills, and dirt roads as fast as possible, the Mojave is the better choice, and overall, I think it’s the best Gladiator model you can buy at the moment.
