2019 honda clarity review ag 3

2019 Honda Clarity review: Not the hybrid you’re looking for

Among plug-in hybrid cars, the Honda Clarity stands out for its impressive 48-mile electric range and its comfortable interior, but the automaker’s own Accord Hybrid mid-size sedan may be a better value for most buyers.
2019 Volkswagen Golf R Review

2019 Volkswagen Golf R review: Everyday danger

From the moment the 2019 Golf R arrived in all its glorious pinkness, we knew we were in for a wild ride. Despite encountering severe storms, rough roads, and more than our share of careless drivers, we just couldn’t get enough. Forget the GTI: this is the hot hatch you want.
2020 audi q5 tfsi e first drive review phev 19

2020 Audi Q5 TFSI E first drive review

Audi will roll out a range of plug-in hybrid models for the 2020 model year. The Q5, the A7, and the A8 are all getting electrified. Digital Trends took a gasoline-electric Q5 for a spin in the German countryside to find out whether it lives up to the Audi emblem on its nose, and how it performs as a hybrid.
2019 Maza CX-9

2019 Mazda CX-9 review: Midsize SUVs don’t have to be boring

While getting older in age, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 represents Mazda’s continued move upstream well. Luxurious, competitively priced, fun to drive, and handsome, the CX-9 is a midsize SUV that makes shuffling seven passengers enjoyable.
2020 lincoln corsair review

2020 Lincoln Corsair first drive review: All about luxury

The 2020 Lincoln Corsair takes a different approach to the luxury crossover game. Its intuitive tech and relaxed character are a counterpoint to the German and Japanese usual suspects. The 2020 Lincoln Corsair replaces the MKC as the smallest utility vehicle in Lincoln's lineup.
Driving down the highway | 2020 Audi RS 7 first drive

2020 Audi RS 7 first drive review

Audi's new RS 7 is so quick that our phone flew from the center console to the back seat after we floored it. Giving phones wings is a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-liter V8 engine that makes 590 hp and 591 lb.-ft. of torque. The RS 7 is more than a big engine; it's full of tech, including an excellent infotainment system.
2020 ford mustang ecoboost high performance package review

2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost HPP first drive review: Four is more

The 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost gets a new High Performance Package that brings more power and a number of other upgrades. Is that enough to bring this four-cylinder model out of the V8 Mustang's shadow? The package adds $4,995 to the price of a 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost.
2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI Review

2019 Volkswagen Golf GTI review: Stick with the classic

Year in and year out, the Volkswagen Golf GTI sits atop the list of the best cars you can buy. The 2019 GTI is no different, and like its predecessors is a blast to drive. An additional 8 hp and new driver assistance tech even in the base S model makes it a top pick for those looking for a more compact ride without sacrificing performance.
2019 Volkswagen Atlas review

2019 Volkswagen Atlas review: Big box

Volkswagen has finally realized that Americans like big cars. The Volkswagen Atlas is its first attempt at designing a car to cater to the American market, and for the most part the Atlas looks and plays the part well. But have they played it too safe? They just might have – even though the Atlas is priced right.
2020 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium

2020 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium first drive review

The Toyota Supra makes a triumphant return as a joint project with BMW, to the delights of driving enthusiasts, racing fans, and aftermarket tuners alike. We were among the first group of lucky individuals to give it a proper spin on the road and on the track at Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia.
2019 honda civic touring sedan review

2019 Honda Civic Touring sedan review: All grown up

The 2019 Honda Civic sedan faces stiff competition from rivals like the Toyota Corolla and Volkswagen Jetta. So how does the 10th-generation Honda Civic fare against other current compact cars? Honda gave the Civic an updated infotainment system and other tweaks for the 2019 model year.
2019 toyota prius prime review

2019 Toyota Prius Prime Advanced review: Serious mileage

Thanks to a plug-in hybrid powertrain, the 2019 Toyota Prius Prime offers better gas mileage than a standard Prius. But how does Toyota's effort compare to other plug-in hybrids? Should you put a Prius Prime in your driveway instead of a Honda Clarity or Kia Niro plug-in?
2020 Hyundai Palisade

2020 Hyundai Palisade first drive review

Hyundai aims to carve out a slice of the lucrative large-crossover segment with the 2020 Palisade. On paper, this value-packed, three-row crossover provides comfortable seating for eight in a spacious, affordable package with lots of modern conveniences and clever tech. We find out how it measures up in the real world.
2019 BMW i3s review

2019 BMW i3s review: Fun, but still flawed

The 2019 BMW i3s is the latest iteration of a groundbreaking electric car. With a city-focused design and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic constriction, the BMW i3s is like no other car on the road, but how does it stack up against other electric cars?
2019 nissan leaf plus review 9

2019 Nissan Leaf Plus review

The 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus adds something that was missing in the electric car’s recent redesign: range. The Leaf Plus boasts up to 226 miles of range, compared to 150 miles for the standard Leaf. The Plus model also has more power than the entry-level Leaf.
2020 lincoln aviator review first drive 5

2020 Lincoln Aviator first drive review

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator flies into battle against established rivals like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, as well as fellow newcomer Cadillac XT6. Lincoln brings intuitive tech and a 494-horsepower plug-in hybrid powertrain into the fight for luxury SUV supremacy.
2019 Saleen 302 Black Label

2019 Saleen 302 Black Label Mustang review

Outfitted with an aggressive body kit and a massive blower, the Saleen 302 Black Label shifts the Mustang GT’s intent firmly back into muscle car territory. But while the sights and sounds tell a tale of incredible performance, the experience from behind the wheel falls short.
2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid first drive review

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid first drive review

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is the most powerful Porsche Cayenne SUV model you can buy. It’s also a plug-in hybrid. It arrives in the United States in calendar year 2020, a few months after the V6-engine Cayenne E-Hybrid.
2019 Audi Q3

2019 Audi Q3 first drive review

The 2019 Audi Q3 isn’t perfect, but it’s very good. This is a small SUV that you can use and enjoy every day. It’s small enough to take into the city without a worry, and big enough to haul your stuff and be comfortable. Most of all, it’s affordable. The Q3 really covers all the bases very well.
2020 Nissan Versa

2020 Nissan Versa first drive review

The 2020 Nissan Versa sedan trades the previous generation’s boring exterior and basic features for a more extroverted new look and a ton more tech. Will that be enough to win buyers away from the Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, and Toyota Yaris?
2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder

2020 Lamborghini Huracán Evo Spyder review

Borrowing hardware from the track-focused Huracán Performante while adding a few new tricks to the repertoire, the Huracán Evo Spyder epitomizes the modern open-top supercar experience.
2019 Hyundai Elantra GT

2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line review

The 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line doesn’t reinvent the hatchback game, but plays it well. Boasting suspension upgrades and a 201-hp turbocharged engine, it’s an entertaining daily driver. The N-Line treatment is one step below Hyundai’s full-bore N models.
2019 porsche cayenne e hybrid review 2

2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid first drive review

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid is a jack of all trades. It can silently cruise through city centers on electric power, keep occupants comfortable on highway slogs, or attack corners like a sports car. It’s a welcome addition to the redesigned third-generation Porsche Cayenne lineup.
2020 Cadillac XT6

2020 Cadillac XT6 first drive review

The 2020 Cadillac XT6 is a belated entry into a very popular market segment. While it appeals to broader audience than Cadillac’s sports sedans, the XT6 also feels like a placeholder. The new Cadillac has plenty of tech and interior space, but its parts never add up to a convincing whole.
2020 range rover evoque review ranger feat

2020 Range Rover Evoque review

Packing refined styling and an updated interior, the updated Evoque is a head turner in a segment full of forgettable faces, but powertrain quirks and a hefty price tag ultimately make this pint-sized Range Rover a middling affair.
2020 Lexus RX review

2020 Lexus RX first drive review

The Lexus RX crossover enters the 2020 model year with significant tech upgrades that make it more user-friendly to live with on a daily basis. It gains a touchscreen-based infotainment system, and smartphone connectivity. It remains as comfortable as ever, and it continues to illustrate what Lexus stands for.
2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe prototype

2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe prototype first drive review

BMW is expanding its lineup with a model called 2 Series Gran Coupe. It's a fastback positioned below the 3 Series as the automaker's entry-level model, and it's aimed at young motorists who want a blend of style, practicality, and tech. Digital Trends drove a pre-production prototype ahead of the Gran Coupe's debut.
2020 Alpina B7 review

2020 Alpina B7 first drive review

Alpina began making hot-rodded BMWs years before anyone heard of an M5. Digital Trends traveled to scenic Bavaria to put the B7, its flagship model, through its paces on a variety of roads. The B7 is based on the 7 Series, and it was updated for the 2020 model year, but it's not merely a big Bimmer with a body it.
2019 bmw m4 cs review fw

2019 BMW M4 CS review

Splitting the difference between the standard M4 and the hardcore track setup of the limited-production M4 GTS, the CS brings with it a sharper look to match its sharper performance, but there are some caveats involved.
2019 hyundai kona ultimate awd review 17

2019 Hyundai Kona Ultimate AWD review

The 2019 Hyundai Kona tries to woo buyers with outlandish styling, but its true appeal is under the skin. A well-designed interior and entertaining driving dynamics add some substance to the Kona’s style. The Hyundai Kona competes against a legion of small crossovers, including the Ford EcoSport and Honda HR-V.
2020 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid review

2020 Bentley Bentayga Hybrid first drive review

2020 bentley continental gt v8 coupe review feat

2020 Bentley Continental GT V8 coupe first drive review

The 2020 Bentley Continental GT V8 sits below the flagship W12 model in Bentley’s lineup, but that doesn’t matter from behind the wheel. The V8 version adds an extra layer of sensation, and still offers more performance than the average driver will ever need. It’s the best kind of downsizing.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 first drive

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS first drive review

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS replaces the aging second-generation GLS as Mercedes’ premium three-row SUV. Mercedes claims the all-new GLS is “the S-Class of SUVs.” We put that boast to the test. It’s fair to say the GLS offers a competent interpretation of S-Class luxury, but what surprised us is what happened when the road ended.
2020 Ford Explorer First Drive

2020 Ford Explorer first drive review

The 2020 Ford Explorer emerges from a redesign on a new rear-wheel drive platform, boasting hybrid and sporty ST models for the first time. The Explorer’s redesigned interior boasts bigger screens, and a new digital instrument cluster. But will that be enough to beat other midsize three-row family SUVs?
