2018 Ford Mustang is a world-class sports coupe... with a standard burnout mode
It seems like Ford has been constantly fiddling with the Mustang, tweaking something here and changing something there; it can't seem to leave good enough alone. The net result is that the 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost and Mustang GT we're examining today are very different cars than when this platform debuted just a few years ago.

2018 GMC

2018 GMC Terrain offers suburban sensibility, three ways
Part of the reason Pontiac and Oldsmobile disappeared is because General Motors ate into its own sales by offering up so many of the same vehicles across its brands with only slight adjustments. GMC still does this to a large degree, but for some reason, it has such staying power that it didn't just survive the culling, it thrived.

2018 Honda

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.

Over the past couple of years, Hyundai has been working feverishly behind the scenes in preparation to launch its new performance sub-brand, N. The division's first offering, dubbed i30 N, finally launches this fall in Europe. Sadly, it's not earmarked for the US -- Americans will have to wait until next year to get their first taste of N. Until that time, the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport seen here may just be the next best thing.

The bummer is that you'd be spending at least $52,900 on the XC60 and as much as $82,800 for the Cayenne. Ouch.

2018 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition is still a worthy sports car
This might be tough to believe, but Nissan has an entry-level sports car, and it's called the 370Z. I'm just making sure you were aware because, despite being an excellent way to get your rear-wheel drive kicks, Nissan sold just 3,265 of the two-seat sports cars in 2017. Sure, it pretty much looks exactly the same as it did when it debuted in 2009, but that doesn't mean it's bad. In fact, it's one of the last tech-free sports cars on the market today.

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.

Blazing the Nürburgring in Kia's 365-horsepower sport sedan
Germany's Nürburgring is among the most challenging and dangerous race tracks in the world. If you don't believe me, just search the internet for a crash compilation video. The historic circuit spans 13 miles, encompasses 73 corners, is relatively narrow, features a lot of elevation change and I have never previously been on it. For my first laps ever around the Nordschleife, I'm in a 2018 Kia Stinger GT.

Bucking a Trend: The Round-Headlamp Cars of 1979
By the time the 1976 model year rolled around, the trusty round headlamp had been an auto-industry norm for more than 70 years. Much of what drove this stylistic consistency was the easily replaced one-piece sealed-beam lamp, the use of which became U.S. law in 1940.

Cheap Wheels: 1986-90 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera GT/International Series Coupe
Introduced for 1982, the Cutlass Ciera was Oldsmobile's version of General Motors's new A-body quartet of family cars with the Chevrolet Celebrity, Buick Century, and Pontiac 6000. All were built on a front-drive chassis largely cribbed from the 1980-vintage X-car compacts. The pricier A-bodies shared those compacts' 104.9-inch wheelbase, but somehow avoided the X-car's trouble-prone reputation.

If you're one of those supposedly ever-rarer purchasers of compact sedans, Hyundai seemingly still wants your business. Its wholly redesigned 2017 Elantra comes a lot of ways in hopes that one of them will be right for your needs. Moving up the line, there's the budget-priced SE with a starting tab solidly below $20,000, the fuel-conserving Eco, the spunky 201-horsepower Sport, and the dressier and convenience-laden Limited.

Test Drive: 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric
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. Compelled by the requirements of battery packaging, and the needs to pare weight and improve aerodynamics, they often had odd exterior shapes and/or offbeat interior layouts.

Test Drive: 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid
Hyundai has been showing off its Ioniq compact hatchback at auto shows this year, promising (in order of introduction) all-electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid versions. We recently tested an electric version and found it to be a strong contender in the class. Now we've had a shot at the hybrid model, and our reaction is much the same.

Test Drive: 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited Ultimate
When you name a vehicle "Limited Ultimate," like Hyundai has done at the head of the Santa Fe line of midsize crossover sport-utilities, the only thing left to do is drop the mic and walk offstage. There can't be a better one next year–what could they possibly call it?

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.

Test Drive: 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible
We've all heard this simile to describe something difficult: "Like herding cats." Apparently Jaguar isn't afraid of a little challenge because it is adding to its herd in the F-Type sports car family. Twenty seventeen sees the debuts of a lower-cost base "F" and a line-topping high-performance SVR--and the 2018 lineup will be larger still.

There may not be one eye-opening or truly outstanding thing about the 2017 Kia Forte sedan but there are enough good things about it in one bundle to appreciate. Even as updated for '17 there's nothing flashy or contrived in either performance or equipment that gets in the way of usefulness. If I had to sum up the new Forte that Consumer Guide® got to test in one word, it would be "honest."

Test Drive: 2017 Lexus GS F
Even though the wheel houses do press in from the sides, the GS F still has ample space on a flat floor that extends far forward into the squared-off cargo hold. At 14 cubic feet it is not the biggest in the premium-midsize class but isn't the smallest, and its shape holds the promise of being able to accommodate a variety of loads. Its utility is further enhanced with a covered bin for incidentals on the left side and a bit of shallow but wide space under the fully carpeted floor. The rear seats don't fold but there is a big pass-through to accommodate long items.

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.

The Lexus LX 570 that Consumer Guide® tested springs from the same body-on-frame platform used by the Toyota Land Cruiser, so they have very similar dimensions inside and out. they also have a V8 engine and 8-speed automatic transmission in common, so performance is nearly identical. 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.

It takes these steps by adopting the core platform of the X1 from corporate parent BMW.

Back in the 1970s and '80s, hot hatchbacks were all the rage. These were otherwise-pedestrian econoboxes souped up with hotter engines, typically turbocharged ones.

In virtually all their forms, plug-in hybrids are much like regular hybrids, except the battery is larger, allowing the vehicle to travel a ways on electric power alone before reverting to "normal" hybrid operation. 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.
