The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is a brand new model line for 2020—the first in a crop of new utility vehicles from Volkswagen as the German automaker looks to double its crossover lineup. It’s essentially a sportier-looking Volkswagen Atlas with slightly shrunken dimensions, and two rows of seating instead of three. Powertrain options are identical… Continue Reading...
The Nissan Pathfinder is Nissan’s three-row mid-size crossover, slotting above the two-row Murano in the lineup and below the big, Titan-based Armada. The Pathfinder is the utility of choice for customers who need seven seats, but don’t necessarily want the Armada’s towing/hauling capacity, nor its thirsty V8 engine. Now in its fourth generation, the Nissan… Continue Reading...
Infiniti has previewed what will be a coupe SUV that will join the brand’s lineup in 2020.

The Honda Passport is the Japanese brand’s latest niche-filler in the ever-hot crossover market. Automotive trivia hotshots will point out this isn’t the first time the Passport name has found itself on the back of an H-badged crossover. From 1993 to 2002 Honda stuck its badge on the hearty Isuzu Rodeo for two Passport generations. The… Continue Reading...
The Kia Optima is a mid-size car produced by South Korean automaker Kia Motors since 2000, over four distinct generations.

The current fourth-generation model line… Continue Reading...

The Honda Pilot has been an essential part of the brand’s lineup right from its introduction in 2002. The current generation, which first showed up in 2016, is a departure for the model. The Pilot’s gone all swoopy, adopting the curvier, more aerodynamic styling seen on its CR-V and HR-V little brothers. It’s immediately identifiable as… Continue Reading...
Once upon a time, Subaru tried its hand at making a three-row SUV for families. It was called the B9 Tribeca in some markets, or just plain Tribeca in the US. The only thing weirder than its name was its looks, so Subaru axed the Tribeca in 2014 and set to work on a replacement… Continue Reading...
The Kia Sportage has been around longer than most consumers probably realize. The first-generation model, which was a true body-on-frame compact SUV, first entered production way back in 1993. It soldiered on for nearly a decade in the U.S. market without much change, and by any objective measure, it was a sales flop. A couple… Continue Reading...
There’s no mincing words: the Porsche Taycan is Stuttgart’s battery-powered shot at Tesla and the high-end EV segment. It isn’t the first big four-door car in the lineup — there’s the similarly-sized Porsche Panamera — but the Taycan is an all-electric option. It occupies much the same market as its traditionally-powered sibling, starting in the… Continue Reading...

The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek isn’t much different, building on the success of the original. Based on the same global platform as the Subaru Impreza, the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek… Continue Reading...
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a mid-size crossover utility vehicle sold under Fiat Chrysler’s rugged Jeep brand, and produced over four distinct generations. Where many crossovers currently on the market started life as truck-based body-on-frame SUVs, the Grand Cherokee has used a car-like unibody structure since its initial introduction for 1993, making it a bit of… Continue Reading...
Like the New Mexico city from which it borrows its name, the Hyundai Santa Fe is hot. The mid-size crossover, which has been produced over four distinct generations since its launch at the turn of the millennium, helped solidify Hyundai’s standing in the U.S. market.
