Kia Niro SX Touring —Soul searching

(January 15, 2023) In a few of the enthusiast pubs — notably, the Brit mags — there’s the regular reference to what their editorial staffs buy and drive. And those wheels just keep on spinning, with an ongoing hubbub of collectible this and track day that; you wonder how-in-the-King’s name they have the time, even if they can find the money, to acquire so many machines.

Dodge Charger Widebody — Say farewell to the iconic Charger

(January 10, 2023) When Dodge first launched the Charger back in 1966 it was a fastback version of the midsize Coronet as a four-seat two-door receiving a tepid reception with sales not what Dodge expected. The second-generation Charger with more aggressive styling with its recessed grille and flying buttress roofline and recessed rear window captured the buying public’s attention with sales nearly 100,000 units. It also greeted the arrival of the now famous Charger Daytona with its massive rear wing and aerodynamic front nose cone and qualifying NASCAR credentials.

(January 8, 2023) Audi introduced the all-new A3 sedan as a 2022 model after a year hiatus, and we give the German luxury car company a high score for creating a fun-to-drive small car that is every bit an Audi as its larger, more-expensive cousins. This is the smallest Audi sedan, and that suits us just fine. We love small cars that can comfortably accommodate two adult passengers in the second row for an occasional trip to a favorite eating place.

(January 1, 2023) The 2023 Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV with seating for up to five passengers has lived at or near the top of virtually everyone's rankings for the past few years thanks to its premium interior and excellent driving dynamics. Current buyers apparently agree, the CX-5 is an excellent choice because it has become the best-selling vehicle in Mazda's U.S. lineup.

Kia Telluride – Already superb SUV only gets better for 2023



By Jim Prueter

(December 28, 2022) It’s the hottest 8-seat, 3-row SUV on the market with such a selling success that Kia literally can’t build enough of them to meet consumer demand. So much so that Kia is upping production at its West Point, Ga., manufacturing plant by 25 percent to around 120,000 a year.  It’s  the 4th bestselling 3-row SUV in America. In fact, it’s the one I recommend the most for anyone looking for a family friendly 3-row vehicle.

(December 25, 2022) If you have decided on the purchase of a new 2022 Toyota Highlander, but are torn between the standard gas-engine model or the hybrid edition — maybe because of the price difference? We have three numbers for you that may sway your decision — 35, 35 and 35.

Cadillac Escalade — American Pie

(December 22, 2022) Some 50 years after Don McLean penned "American Pie," King Cadillac is looking up while the jester, Elon Musk, is looking down and — I’m guessing here — looking ahead. Of course, Cadillac and its GM siblings are planning to catch Tesla in a way only $illon-dollar multinationals can; Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC and Buick will be introducing a catalog of EVs, beginning in 2023.

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

(December 18, 2022) With a head-turning exterior design and a stylish and sumptuous cabin, the 2022 G80 legitimizes Genesis as a true luxury brand. The second-generation G80, now in its second year, can stand toe-to-toe with its Japanese and German competitors and outclasses  nearly all of its American rivals with its first-rate materials and outstanding driving experience.
