Autoblog answers all your questions about the 2018 Chevy Equinox
The Ford Escape is right in the thick of the compact SUV segment, with rivals including the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5, and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. The Escape is perfectly suited to SUV buyers who don't want to give up car-like driving manners. Handling is fun and sporty, something you don't often encounter in the sport-utility segment, no matter size or price point. The ride is firmer than some alternatives, however.
What it costs, how far you'll go, and how it's equipped.
Everyone's got a list of features that their next car absolutely must have. For some folks, this is easier than for others. Got six kids? You're looking at three-row crossovers or minivans. But what if you crave technology in your ride? Sure, some cars are known for catering to tech-craving folks, but it's not always easy to broadly survey the entire field of vehicles on sale and see everything in your category.
Autoblog answers all your questions about the 2018 Jeep Wrangler
Don't be the guy in the image above. If you're just plain tall, or have really long legs, we feel your pain – and you should be driving a car that fits you right. A few Autoblog editors fall into the long camp, and despite vehicles designed for Americans generally being generous with interior room, it's not always easy to find a car that'll work without contortion. No one wants their knees digging into the underside of the dash just to reach the wheel, or their head brushing the headliner
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Associate Editor Reese Counts. We talk about driving the updated, turbocharged 2018 Mazda6, 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo 4S Sport Turismo and the 2018 Nissan Titan S 4x4 King Cab. We also discuss aftermarket parts for the Chevy Colorado, pick our favorite 50th Anniversary Hot Wheels and, as always, help a listener buy a new car in our "Spend My Money" segment.
It's true that vehicles get a little bit safer, cumulatively, with every passing year. Each time a car, truck, SUV, or van is redesigned, the automaker can optimize it to ace the safety ratings and incorporate new features that car buyers value to help protect their families and others on the road, like pedestrians and bicyclists. But new cars are subject to more comprehensive safety testing than ever, and there's a gradient of available safety out there.
The 2019 Hyundai Veloster is completely new for its second generation, and it will be hitting dealers soon. And in Veloster Turbo form, it promises to be an interesting entry in the highly competitive affordable sporty car segment, one mostly populated by hot hatchbacks such as itself. The question of course is, can it stand up to the establishment, a group of vehicles including models with decades of history? Ahead of an upcoming drive, we decided to compare its specifications with those of the
Hyundai's 2019 Veloster hatchback will start at $19,385 for the 2.0-liter with a manual transmission when it arrives at dealers in the coming weeks. It'll also be available in Turbo and R-Spec trim configurations, which start at $23,785 for a manual and top out at a $29,035 starting price for the Turbo Ultimate fitted with a dual-clutch transmission. All prices are inclusive of Hyundai's $885 freight charge.
Thirty years after General Motors stopped building it, the Pontiac Fiero might have finally emerged from the darkness. First, it was a humble commuter car that just happened to be a mid-engined coupe, then it was a re-skinnable basis for Fierorraris or other slightly strange kit cars, and then it made some Worst Cars of All Time lists due to its econobox ingredients, including its Chevy Citation suspension parts. But after a few decades, even the most mediocre car will become interesting, as mos
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Senior Editor Alex Kierstein. We talk about our favorite cars from the 1990s, and the ones we've been driving recently. We also speculate about the BMW M7, talk about the Mercedes-AMG GT four-door, and reach a consensus (sort of) in this week's "Spend My Money" segment.
New cars are safer than old cars. Yeah, we know. Obviously. But the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration just released a report highlighting the added safety of newer cars and trucks over older cars and trucks, and attaching real data to an otherwise assumed theory is always a good idea.
Anyone else have "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People stuck in their heads? Well, you do now. I couldn't be the only one. Anyway, the 2018 Nissan Kicks is a thing. It replaces the Nissan Juke, which Mr. Stocksdale thought was a bad idea and Mr. Myself thought was a smart idea. Nevertheless, neither of us were especially pumped up by the Kicks.
Plug-in vehicles make up just a little over one percent of cars sold in the U.S. That's not a huge share, but it is quickly rising. And if a new survey from AAA is any example, the country's taste for electric vehicles should only help accelerate demand, as the insurance group found that 20 percent of customers want their next car to run on electricity, up from 15 percent in 2017.
During our first drive of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the all-new SUV's product manager was asked to identify competitors that might have been benchmarked in its development. The look on his face was about the same as if someone had asked him to recite King Lear in Klingon. As far as Andreas Hoeppel was concerned, the G 550 and AMG G 63 doesn't actually have a rival, or at least something the engineers and designers thought to compare it against. The G-Class is a G-Class, who cares what the
