First Drive: 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Review

First Drive: 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Review
It’s about time. Just over 20 years since the first Honda Insight arrived on US shores—beating the Toyota Prius to US market by a year—the company has launched a hybrid version of its popular CR-V crossover. And it couldn’t have come a moment sooner.

2020 Volvo XC90 T8 Review

2020 Volvo XC90 T8 Review
There’s a bit-part character in Mad Men whose portfolio is filled with “the cure for the common X” taglines. If Danny Siegel got any amount of seat time with the 2020 Volvo XC90 he’d almost surely call it the cure for the common SUV. And he wouldn’t be wrong.

2020 Toyota Sienna Review
I’m not ashamed to admit this review started for purely selfish reasons. Being honest is important in this field, after all.

Despite its quietly handsome new looks, the 2020 Toyota Highlander lives up to its namesake as a fierce fighter. The battleground: the three-row crossover market. It’s a bloody battle royale, with two dozen competitors all vying for customer dollars. The current Highlander has been fighting with essentially the same tools since 2014, and yet it still…

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S First Drive Review

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S First Drive Review
It’s raining. Normally that’d only be a mild annoyance on a car launch, scuppering more complicated photo ops. But I’m in Finland. Just inside the Arctic Circle. In December. It’s the sort of situation that even the ever-ready Porsche PR team might secretly chalk up as a win. After all, we’re in this normally punishing…
