  1. The perky Honda Civic Si is getting a handful of tweaks for the 2020 model year, including some nip-and-tuck styling updates and a shorter final-drive ratio for better performance. In the design department, the 2020 Civic Si sedan and coupe get only minor updates to keep the styling fresh. Up front, the grille has been tweaked and new body-colored...View the full article
  2. Volvo scored two more Top Safety Pick awards for its 2019 lineup, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced Thursday. This round of awards goes to the S90 sedan and the XC90 SUV. Both vehicles were penalized for the subpar performance of their optional curve-following headlights, which actually fared worse in IIHS testing than...View the full article
  3. The 2020 Volkswagen Jetta sedan makes up for its lack of pizazz in most configurations with exceptional refinement and value. Overall, we rate the 2020 Jetta at 6.0 out of 10 (read more about how we rate cars). That figure is determined by the most popular versions of the Jetta—S, SE, SEL, and SEL Premium versions powered by a 148-horsepower...View the full article
  4. The 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan is a crossover SUV that doesn’t chase trends. It’s a conservatively styled, well-proportioned family hauler made a more attractive value this year by the addition of standard collision-avoidance technology. The spacious 2020 Tiguan doesn’t shout for attention. It relies instead on its relatively...View the full article
  5. New 2020 Ford Escape crossover costs $26,080 and keeps going from there The redesigned crossover is more car-like and bigger, without a dramatic price increase. Electric 2020 Porsche Taycan debuts native Apple Music streaming service Apple and Porsche announced the first native application of the streaming service in a production vehicle. New car...View the full article
  6. More than 1,500 car shoppers said they avoid electric cars because they're too expensive, don't offer a usable range, or because they don't have access to a charger, a new report found. The survey, conducted by Autolist.com, collected responses from 1,567 car shoppers and asked shoppers the reasons why they would or would not consider an electric...View the full article
  7. Porsche announced Tuesday that its first fully electric vehicle will be the first car available with native Apple Music baked into the infotainment system. The automaker's announcement also gave us our earliest glimpse of the Porsche Taycan's interior as part of the tie-up with the tech company. The 2020 Porsche Taycan will offer the streaming...View the full article
  8. The redesigned 2020 Ford Escape crossover will cost at least $26,080, including mandatory destination charges, when it goes on sale later this fall, about $250 more than the outgoing model. The new Escape's price was first reported by Motor1. The 2020 Ford Escape SE is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo-3 that makes 180 horsepower and shifts power to...View the full article
  9. 2020 Lincoln Aviator full review We rate the new luxury SUV at 7.0 overall thanks to a comfortable interior and a good-looking exterior. Power, efficiency, reality all catch up with 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Why pick a turbodiesel light-duty pickup? The answer won't be the same for all buyers. More than 100K 2015 Ford Fusion, Lincoln MKZ sedans...View the full article
  10. Kia Stingers already have plenty of power to move, but they haven't been moving off dealer lots and now Kia is pricing them to move quicker. Our partners at CarDirect found a dealer incentive of up to $3,000 on some Stinger models, but there's a catch. According to CarsDirect, the $3,000 is dealer-incentive cash, which may not be passed along to...View the full article
  11. The 2020 Lincoln Aviator is strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator. In base, Reserve, and Black Label, both the Aviator and Aviator Grand Touring hybrid vector off in a luxury lane. We give it 7.0 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche...View the full article
  12. For 2020, Ram isn’t letting off the gas—or maybe I should say “accelerator.” The 2020 Ram 1500 marks the return of the EcoDiesel engine under the hood of the automaker’s light-duty pickup truck. With a $4,995 price premium (or $3,000 over the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 e-Torque mild-hybrid) the burning question for the diesel...View the full article
  13. Ford announced last week that it would recall more than 100,000 2015 Ford Fusion and 2015 Lincoln MKZ sedans for seat belt fasteners that could erode and fail to hold occupants in place in a crash. The automaker said it was aware of one injury caused by the faulty seat belts. In a statement, Ford said that 2015 Fusion sedans built between Aug. 1...View the full article
  14. Compact hatchbacks get a bad wrap as soulless econoboxes. Perhaps that's why fewer Americans buy them each year and run toward crossovers like they're In-N-Out Burger. (Eds note: Crossovers are basically hatchbacks on stilts, but we won't tell anyone else.) The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback is one of the few remaining dedicated hatchbacks on sale...View the full article
  15. 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel pickup trucks priced from $38,585 The turbodiesel is a $3,000 upgrade from V-8-powered trucks, $4,995 upcharge from the V-6. The 2020 Nissan Versa tests the limits of content in a value-driven segment Nissan's subcompact sedan remains less expensive than many rivals, but is that still enough? 2020 Toyota Corolla Nightshade...View the full article
  16. Toyota reinvented its compact stalwart for 2019, injecting it with much-needed shots of youthful energy and modern sophistication. For 2020, the Toyota Corolla sedan and hatchback will be offered with a new Nightshade package, giving buyers access to an edgier, blacked-out aesthetic. Nightshade models will have gloss-black exterior badges, side...View the full article
  17. The average transaction price for a new car is now more than $37,000. For those with access to low-interest, long-term loans, that's not too difficult to stomach. In the real world, not everybody is in that position. Some need new-car reliability and the peace of mind brought about by the accompanying warranty, and they need to do it for...View the full article
  18. When the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel goes on sale later this year it'll be the most expensive optional engine available in a light-duty truck. On Friday, Ram said the 3.0-liter V-6 EcoDiesel engine option in the 2020 Ram 1500 will command a $4,995 premium over the base V-6 mild-hybrid or a $3,000 premium over the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 mild-hybrid. That's...View the full article
  19. 2020 Chevrolet Corvette costs $59,995 to start, including fees Chevy said Thursday that its new mid-engine Corvette would cost less than $60,000—no surprise charges. Ford backtracks on Fiesta, Focus transmission claims, offers extended warranties Ford said it would add two years and 40,000 miles to warranties for a clutch in its problematic...View the full article
  20. Chevrolet on Thursday confirmed a surprise. Although the automaker announced last month that the mid-engine 2020 Chevy Corvette would cost less than $60,000, many expected that price would exclude the mandatory destination charge that would add another $1,000 or so. Not so. When it goes on sale later this year, the 2020 Chevy Corvette will cost...View the full article
  21. Cool after kids is possible. The 2020 Honda Odyssey is more about convenience, and less about capitulation. This year, the van is standard with a 10-speed automatic in all trims and celebrates its 25th anniversary with some special badges and wheels, if you like. The basic formula hasn’t changed over two and a half decades. The Odyssey still...View the full article
  22. The first electric car to earn the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest award is the 2019 Audi E-Tron, the insurance industry-funded group announced Wednesday. The IIHS said the E-tron crossover earned top "Good" scores in every crash test, including the driver- and passenger-side small overlap crash tests. The group noted that every...View the full article
  23. Ford will extend warranties by two years or 40,0000 miles on some 2014-2016 Fiesta and Focus sedans and hatchbacks equipped with a problematic dual-clutch automatic transmission, the automaker announced Wednesday. The move follows building criticism from owners and media over the maligned transmission, which has plagued the automaker since its...View the full article
  24. Efficiency-focused shoppers would do well to consider the 2020 Honda Insight hybrid sedan. The small car from Honda returns not only more than 50 mpg combined in most configurations, according to the EPA, it also manages to do it for less than $24,000 in base form and perhaps, more importantly, without drawing attention to itself. It has plenty to...View the full article
  25. 2020 Ford Ranger FX2 is the baja pickup ready for cities The off-road package for rear-drive pickups adds chunky tires, a rear locking differential, and an off-road suspension.
