Peter has a Porsche Cayman and was until recently dating someone with a Subaru Forester. This made for a good combination of cars. Sadly, the relationship didn’t last and now Peter’s Porsche is a bit too small for hauling the dog and other things. What car should he buy?
The 2018 Subaru Ascent is an eight-seater crossover designed to climb the mountain of crossovers and crush them all. Hop in kids, time to activate our growing family’s lifestyle.
Look, I get that most of you don’t really like this whole crossover vehicle craze. But the facts are CUVs pay the bills, and if we want automakers like Mazda to have the R&D funds to focus on enthusiast cars they’ve got to move CUVs. Mazda says they have a new CUV in the works that will likely slot between the CX-5…
Lexus RX crossovers are many. Lexus RX crossovers are legion. You can run, but you can’t hide. Because you will see 12 of them crammed in a 10-spot parking lot, we had to see if the latest one was any good. However, it was weirdly disappointing, and not just because it’s a crossover. After driving one for a week I…
The bad news is that we’ve known Lotus was likely going to plunge into the crossover craze for a while now. This new patent rendering seems to show they’re getting pretty far along with the concept, but it shouldn’t be anything to worry about.
When the BMW X5 happened, I said alright, sure. Then came the X3. Again, I said, fine. After that, we got the X6. Uh, OK. I’ll play along. My head is still spinning from the X1 and the X4 and now there’s an all-new X2 coming and I’m like, ahhh you guys sure about this one?
Right now, Volkswagen offers three SUVs for the American market: the Touareg (dead), the Atlas and the Tiguan. And as you already know, Americans can’t get enough of these SUV things. So why doesn’t Volkswagen seem like it has plans to offer the new, 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV/crossover to us Americans?
There’s already a small but burgeoning resistance against Mercedes-Benz (and other automakers) filling lineups with ugly melted sloping “coupe” crossovers that don’t make any damn sense. Today there is victory, for Mercedes has ruled out any form of convertible crossover, at least for now.
Cadillac president Johan de Nysschen debunked rumors about the luxury CT6 sedan being on the chopping block earlier, and said the company is actually reconfiguring its sedan lineup. But it’s the crossovers that are taking over the car market, and de Nysschen said Cadillac has plans for that.
American car buyers have been flocking to the crossover body style over the traditional sedan. While car sales are slowing down and automakers are getting desperate to offload their inventory, the deals on quality sedans are absolutely bonkers.
I’m close to accepting the crossover takeover. I’m close. Like with the revival in high-waisted pants, I’ve accepted that I have no control over the matter. But damn do cars like the 2017 Jaguar E-Pace make it hard.
If you need a vehicle for moving the family, the minivan is simply the superior tool. But if you think getting a minivan means dooming yourself to three rows of slow, uninspired driving, the current crop of vans could probably dust the sport compact you had as a teenager.
The 2018 BMW X3 wasn’t supposed to be in front of your eyes until Monday, but the manufacturer’s local website in Hong Kong seems to have dropped the truly riveting new compact SUV a few days early. Yes, it’s hard to care about, but now the top X3 actually gets a decent amount of power.
When Volkswagen announced than an all-new, all-bigger 2018 Tiguan would be coming our way, I know many of you were very nervous about the fate of the current model. Fear not, fans of mediocre crossovers! The Tiguan you know and love will live on, as the Tiguan Limited.
You all knew this was coming. There is no way Subaru, who could replace their sales staff with monkeys in polo shirts and still hit records every month would sit idly by while VW launches the Atlas. This is the Subaru Ascent because sometimes an Outback isn’t big enough.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to read before I make you come over and fix my sad, neglected Porsche.
The real answer for pretty much any car buyer’s situation is not Miata, it’s the Subaru Outback. Few other vehicles that can be everything to everyone like the Outback. For 2018 Subaru’s best-selling car gets a little bit better with upgraded technology and styling.
When Acura stuffed the NSX’s hybrid system into its three-row MDX people mover, they did what few rarely achieve: they made a big luxury crossover fun to drive. Not only is the MDX Sport Hybrid one of the most fun factory sleepers you can buy, it’s cheaper than most of its cushy hybrid crossover rivals, too.
Everyone’s getting into crossovers.
Crossovers are completely swallowing up car sales across the American auto market, and nowhere is that more dramatic than at Cadillac, where the mall-core XT5 is now outselling the brand’s entire sedan range.
