After wracking my brain for weeks, I still can’t think of a good reason why all minivans aren’t like the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The minivan market is obviously shrinking at a steady pace and buyers are still averse to the idea of relying on alternative fuels to get around, but this new version of […]

In literature, every great protagonist has its foil; a character that helps highlight some of the central figure’s finer qualities. The Toyota Prius has had many such contrasting characters during its nearly two decades on the market, with the efforts of others simply shining a more positive light on the car that has come to […]

It’s 8 a.m. and I’m standing in a parking lot looking at a sea of cones and listening to a lecture about the rules for the day. It sounds like the start of a typical autocross day. Only this time, I’m not in my usual autocross car. I’m looking at something a little newer, a […]

Based around an unusual full hybrid powertrain with no actual transmission – but a virtual continuously variable tranny instead – its 48 mpg combined rating is very close to Toyota Prius territory in a handsomely styled, spacious, and much-more powerful package.

The 2017 Kia Optima Hybrid competes closely with others in the midsized hybrid sedan class, and stands apart uniquely in one important way. Actually there are a few features that distinguish the fully redesigned car introduced for sale last fall, but its six-speed automatic transmission is a relative anomaly some drivers will prefer over a […]

Yesterday Lucid Motors revealed its anticipated electric car with over 400 projected miles of range, blistering acceleration, and intentions to exceed anything Tesla has to offer. The nearly decade-old Silicon Valley startup, formerly known as Atieva, said the Lucid Air “executive class” sedan will create a personal luxury jet “experience.” Mixed in are elegant and […]

Smart has been an interesting experiment in urban mobility. On paper, these tiny runabouts are an ideal transportation option for residents of densely packed megalopolises around the world. But reality is often strikingly different from theory. In practical terms, these cars haven’t been all that popular, at least not in North America. All told, some […]
