  • EU investigates whether Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, VW colluded on diesels
    Many people assume that the upcoming movie about Volkswagen's Dieselgate fiasco will look a lot like Wall Street or The Insider: a tale of corporate greed run amok. If European investigators are proven right, though, the film could be more like The Matrix, because the plot is heading deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. Today we learned that...

  • 2018 Mini Countryman
    The 2018 Mini Countryman is the automaker’s compact crossover and first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Charged (literally and figuratively) with moving the British icon into more driveways with a more practical, taller-riding crossover, the Countryman has a large task. Good thing it’s the biggest Mini to date. We give the Mini...

  • 2018 Mini Cooper
    Come for the style, but you’ll have to stay for the substance. Most buyers are attracted to the 2018 Mini Cooper for its underdog attitude and myriad customization possibilities. But that honeymoon will end, and the Mini’s approach to performance and hatchback versatility will likely endure. We give the 2018 Mini Cooper a 6.5 out of 10...

  • Automakers rally to kill proposed border tax
    During the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, then-candidate Donald Trump made a lot of promises to voters--chief among them, vows to repeal the Affordable Care Act and to penalize companies that manufactured goods for the American market outside the U.S. This hasn't been a great week for either of those efforts.

  • 2018 Cadillac XTS
    The 2018 Cadillac XTS is a pleasant, modern interpretation of traditional big-car values. It’s a fine machine, a full-size cruiser that reminds us of another era without the dated nostalgia, so we’ve rated it at a 7.2 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.) The 2018 XTS is available in base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, Platinum, and...

  • 2018 Ford Escape
    The 2018 Ford Escape does its best to deny its company’s sterling truck credentials. It’s a crossover SUV in mission, but the Escape wants to be driven like a sporty hatchback. Ford sells the Escape in S, SE, SEL, and Titanium trim. All offer all-wheel drive, and Ford fits a range of powertrains that range from frugal to frothy...

    2017 Fiat 500X Trekking first drive: an underrated, if overpriced, crossover You can be forgiven for not remembering the Fiat 500X. Underneath its cheeky body, the 500X is basically the same thing as the Jeep Renegade. Both share the same engines and transmissions, and their structure is largely identical.

  • 2018 BMW M6
    The 2018 BMW M6 lineup shrinks a little this year, a reflection of consumers not enamored with its original, two-door coupe configuration. The M6s that buyers really bought—the four-seat convertible and four-door Gran Coupe—stick around and are as desirable as ever. We’ve scored them 7.8 out of 10 overall points based on their...

  • 2018 Hyundai Tucson
    The 2018 Hyundai Tucson deserves some kind of trophy beyond the usual participation hardware. It doesn’t do anything great in our usual rated categories, but if had one for quiet dependability, it’d be rated highly. With the Tucson, Hyundai doesn’t dazzle us with vast interior space or zippy hardware. It simply does the job of a...

  • 2018 Jaguar E-Pace preview
    After just a year on the ground with its first SUV, the F-Pace, there's another crossover-SUV nameplate coming to Jaguar: E-Pace. No, it's not the all-battery SUV coming next year. That's dubbed the I-Pace. In Jaguar's lexicon, this new crossover's related in size to the XE sedan, though it doesn't share its aluminum-intensive body. From first...

  • Tesla and GM running neck-and-neck to be the most highly valued automaker in America
    April 2017 was such a simpler time. Philanderer Robert Bentley was moving out of the Alabama governor's mansion. Freshly approved Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch was moving into his new digs.

  • My car seats were in a crash, so I'm replacing them: why you should too
    It's the call no parent ever wants to receive. But if you do, your heart skips a full five beats. "We were in a car accident," the voice cracked over the phone as I bolted straight up. "We are all alright. Here's our location." The good news: the car seats did their job to safely protect my children. Now I'm replacing them (the seats, not the...
