2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible
Ever since Land Rover showed the Evoque convertible concept at the 2012 Geneva auto show, it has been compared with one thing–the ill-conceived, overwrought 2011�--2014 Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet. Given the Evoque's high-altitude seating for four, all-wheel drive, true crossover stance, and the same questionable raison d'鳲e (exactly what is the point of a convertible crossover?), comparisons with the Nissan droptop are understandable.

2018 Audi TT RS: 400 horses of civilized aggression
The Audi TT has always been a bit of an odd proposition, something compared to everything from a Mazda Miata to a Porsche Cayman S and yet never quite feeling like a real, direct competitor to any of them. With its luxurious trimmings, available AWD, a generous curb weight and a pair of token rear seats, it sits somewhere between roadster and grand tourer, yet with each iteration the car has gotten harder, faster, and better. The 2018 TT RS represents its ultimate evolution.

2018 Honda Accord is determined to beat the sedan slump
With consumer hunger for crossovers increasing by the day, it may be easy to write off the launch of a new midsize sedan as no big deal. When the new midsize sedan is a Honda Accord, however, it's still very much a big deal. Through June, the Japanese automaker sold 160,091 copies of the current Accord. While that number lags behind CR-V sales, moving 160,000 units of any vehicle in six months is no joke.

Pushing the X-Mode button on the center console, I whispered to myself, "Don't touch the brake. Let the car do the work for you," With a bit of trepidation, I started down the hill.

Likewise, the current Touareg--VW's pricey, luxuriously trimmed midsize SUV contender--dates back to 2011, and hasn't seen any significant architectural updates since.

Review Flashback! 1977 Mercury Cougar
By the mid-Seventies, Mercury wasn't selling much beyond gussied up Fords. Wedged between Ford and Lincoln in FoMoCo's family album, Mercurys were charged with drawing a customer type that was somewhat more affluent than Ford intenders, yet nowhere conservative enough to commit to a Lincoln.

Review Flashback! 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue
By the time Consumer Guide's review of the 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue was published in the Consumer Guide 1989 New Car Buying Guide, production of the car itself had already ended. A completely redesigned front-wheel-drive Fifth Avenue would be introduced as a 1990 model, marking the end of Chrysler's run of rear-drive luxury and near-luxury vehicles--at least for a while. As noted in the review, there were still cars on dealer lots, but maybe not for long.

Test Drive: 2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback
You don't have to turn the new Chevrolet Cruze hatchback inside out to find things to not like. a few jump out, like limited rear leg- and headroom, and skimpy personal-item storage. Performance is . . . nice. If you stop there, though, you might miss a car that's still pleasing and well thought out overall.

Test Drive: 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
At the top of the Ford F-150 Raptor's steering-wheel rim sits a bright red stripe. It's there so the driver can tell at a glance if the wheel is aligned straight in the 12 o'clock position, which is very useful if the Raptor's front tires aren't touching the ground. Wouldn't want the pickup to lurch to the left or the right upon landing; that could be really bad.

Test Drive: 2017 GMC Acadia
GMC is gambling that less is more when it comes to its Acadia midsize crossover SUV. as redesigned for 2017, it is 7.2 inches shorter from nose to tail, 6.6 inches lower from road to roof, and 3.5 inches narrower than before. as a result, the Acadia is lighter by about 700 pounds–and it's cheaper, too. In fact, the base price on a top-of-the-line all-wheel-drive Denali is almost $3000 lower than that of its immediate predecessor.

With the dawn of the second age of the electric car having crested the horizon, one thing I can tell you about the EVs I have driven in recent years is that they didn't let you forget that they were different.

Test Drive: 2017 Jaguar F-Pace 20d Diesel
There may be just one Jaguar sport-utility vehicle but it has multiple facets. The F-Pace, which makes its debut in 2017, can be luxurious, it can be aggressive when outfitted with a supercharged V6, or it can be fairly frugal between fill-ups with a turbocharged diesel 4-cylinder engine under the hood. Consumer Guide® editors have seen all those facets now after driving a V6 35t R-Sport and, more recently, a turbodiesel 20d Prestige.

In a world gone mad for comfy, easy-driving crossover sport-utility vehicles--especially from the subcompact through midsize classes--Lexus is a relative hardy traditionalist.

Finally, they are both packed with many of the same driving aids and convenience features. Due to those similarities, the Toyota is priced within $5055 of its luxury-label corporate cousin.

And though you don't need to, it's most efficient to plug the car into a standard electric outlet to recharge that battery; otherwise, it's recharged during normal driving, but that may not be enough to give it any appreciable "all electric" range.
