2022 Mazda MX-30: 8 things we like, 8 we don’t about this strange EV

Posted in REVIEWS on December 2, 2021

I just spent a week in the Mazda MX-30 EV. I hated it at first, but then I found some nice things to say about it. Overall, it was a stressful EV to live with as an only car for a week. (My wife’s Palisade was in the shop, and my ’74 Beetle currently doesn’t have a steering wheel.) That said, the MX-30 did have me, once again, yearning for an electric daily driver. Just Read More »

2022 Mazda3 gains Carbon Edition model and new paint color

Posted in REVIEWS on December 2, 2021

Mazda is making a handful of visual changes to the Mazda3 for the 2022 model year. Still offered as a sedan and as a hatchback, the Japanese firm's entry-level model gains a familiar new trim level called Carbon Edition and an additional color on its palette. Positioned near the middle of the range, the Carbon Edition is powered by the naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter engine and only offered with front-wheel-drive. It stands out from the rest of Read More »

2022 Cadillac CT4 Review | Punched out and punching up

Posted in REVIEWS on December 2, 2021

Cadillac’s most compact and frugal four-door is perhaps its most compelling, as evidenced by its place among our favorite sport sedans. This small sedan ostensibly competes with the growing class of sub-compact luxury sedans, yet its rear-drive layout and sophisticated chassis are more akin to European offerings a size larger. The CT4’s chassis makes an excellent case for itself against the benchmark BMW 3 Series, and the Blackwing adds M3-like power to that already-phenomenal platform. Read More »

2022 Hyundai Elantra N is the most affordable N car at $32,925

Posted in REVIEWS on December 1, 2021

While the Hyundai Kona N tops the price range for Hyundai's N models, the 2022 Elantra N slides in just below its Veloster cousin to become the cheapest way to get a hopped-up Korean compact. The standard version with the six-speed manual starts at $32,925 including destination. That makes it $600 less than the equivalent Veloster. The Elantra N is also available with a dual-clutch automatic transmission, and that version picks up a power sunroof. Read More »

November auto sales show ongoing slide as inventory woes persist

Posted in REVIEWS on December 1, 2021

The U.S. auto industry continues to recover from the pandemic-tainted sales of 2020, but you wouldn't know it from a glance at the sales charts, which contained pretty much universally bad news for the manufacturers who still report monthly retail sales totals.  Apart from Genesis, which is having a gangbuster year with a big fat asterisk on it, every brand that has reported its November sales so far has come up short compared to last Read More »

America loves trucks. According to Edmunds, which has tracked the best-selling vehicles by state based on new vehicle registrations, 40 out of 50 U.S. states’ best-selling vehicle is a pickup. Most often, that’s the Ford F-Series, but occasional Chevy, Ram and even Toyota top the lists. Here, we’ve compiled the best-selling vehicles by state, including the four runners-up for each state. Interestingly enough, only one EV shows up in a state’s top five (Tesla Model Read More »

Project Maybach is an absurd, awesome off-road electric coupe

Posted in REVIEWS on December 1, 2021

Mercedes has created some mighty unusual concepts for the Maybach luxury brand. The Exelero high-speed test car and the Ultimate Luxury SUV sedan come to mind. But the Project Maybach, designed in collaboration with late fashion designer Virgil Abloh, may be the wildest yet, being an electric off-road coupe. It's not just the fact it's a two-door off-road coupe. It's the fact that it's a nearly 20-foot-long two-door off-road coupe. And it has very traditional Read More »

2022 Nissan Murano shows its dark side with Midnight Edition

Posted in REVIEWS on December 1, 2021

Nissan is adding the Murano to its range of blacked-out Midnight Edition cars for the 2022 model year. Also offered on the Altima, among other nameplates, the appearance package bundles a handful of black exterior accents that give the crossover a more sinister look. Ticking the Midnight Edition box brings a black grille, black exterior trim pieces, black roof rails, and 20-inch wheels finished in — you guessed it! — black. The package also includes Read More »
