2018 nissan leaf long-term road test

by dan edmunds, director of vehicle testingwe added an all-new 2018 nissan leaf to our long-term fleet to see if its new 151-mile range can calm our range anxiety.see full article and comment.





2018 nissan leaf long-term road test

the all-new 2018 nissan leaf is here, and not a moment too soon. the original 2011 nissan leaf wasn't the first electric car ever made, but one could argue that it was the first practical volume-selling electric car, one that proved evs could be more desirable than some glorified golf cart.it helped that the leaf was no boutique sports car or a captive fleet car available only to utility companies, or even a lease-only special you'd need to return after three years. the leaf debuted with 73 miles of range — decent for the time — and it was the first ev built with the much-needed sae j1772 standard charge socket, which helped public charge networks and 240-volt home charging technology to flourish. since then, evs have grown to include numerous new vehicles with interesting designs, h...





2018 bmw 540i xdrive long-term road test

2018 bmw 540i xdrive: monthly update for march 2018by cameron rogers, staff writerwhere did we drive it?even though several members of our editorial, photo, video and social media teams were out of town in march for the new york international auto show, our 2018 bmw 540i xdrive didn't stay in the parking garage one single night. auto show festivities kept our coast-to-coast staff busy and there wasn't much leeway for road trips, so despite its popularity the 540i didn't leave los angeles and we only added a little more than 900 miles to the odometer. for those keeping track, that's a little more than halfway to our monthly target of 1,700 miles. what kind of fuel economy did it get?lots of city driving. two of the 540i's three fills in march fell below the epa's city rating, at 18.0 ...





2017 subaru impreza long-term road test

2017 subaru impreza: monthly update for march 2018by calvin kim, road test editorlet the miles pile on! while we thought we did well by just accruing 1,600 miles on our 2017 subaru impreza in march, we blew past that mark and added a total of 3,792 miles thanks to long road trips to san francisco, phoenix and death valley. through it all, our impreza exhibited no faults or issues, and aside from putting 3 more psi of air in the driver's side front tire, no maintenance was needed. with the 20,000-mile mark passed and the impreza timing out, this is probably the last update for our plucky all-wheel-drive sedan. at this point, most of our drivers have begrudgingly accepted that it's a good car but not a great one. there are a lot of technical merits to it, but strict adherence to numeric ad...

2019 lexus es 350 first look

in a testament to the brand's expanding worldwide prominence, lexus pulled the wraps off its 2019 lexus es in a simultaneous unveiling staged in rancho palos verdes, california, and beijing, china. the markets differ slightly in terms of engine offerings, so the emphasis here in the untied states is on the 2019 lexus es 350 and the es 300h hybrid. the relatively young lexus es line dates back to 1989, the year the es helped debut the lexus brand itself as one of two founding models. the v6 front-wheel-drive luxury sedan template that was forged then tended to appeal to a mature audience, but the 2019 lexus es 350 signals a clear intent to broaden the es' appeal to younger buyers. this seventh-generation es offering aims to do that through a combination of sleeker styling, a wider stance,...





2019 kia k900 first drive

kia, a brand known for economical cars, introduced the k900 luxury sedan to the u.s. in 2015. it was intended to elevate the south korean automaker's standing, with the hope of shoppers saying, "that's a kia?" in some respects, it worked. the k900 was exceptional for the money and a decent luxury sedan overall. whether or not it elevated the brand in the eyes of the american car shopper is difficult to prove, and perhaps that single example isn't enough to yield a definitive answer.that leads us to the fully redesigned 2019 kia k900. it addresses almost all of the drawbacks we point out in our reviews and maintains its value proposition. a scant three weeks after its global debut at the 2018 new york auto show, we had a chance to sample it for ourselves in south korea.overturecompared...





2018 ford f-150 long-term road test

2018 ford f-150: 360 split-view displayby dan frio, automotive editorwhen you see an f-150 from the early to mid-'90s, you realize how insanely massive today's truck is. when i cross the bow of our 2018 ford f-150 on my way to the driver's seat, the hoodline nearly reaches my shoulder. if this truck hit me, i don't think i'd go cartwheeling over the hood like you see in videos. i'm sure i'd just be inhaled into the engine compartment.the truck's mass makes it hard to get a real sense of space around the bumpers and fenders, and it makes me approach tight quarters with a craned neck and a murmur of prayer. a bird's-eye surround-view camera would help here. ford has one that it calls the "360 split-view display." it's standard on the top limited trim and optional on platinum, kin...





2019 chevrolet corvette zr1 first drive

you can't ignore the engine. the 2019 chevrolet corvette zr1 has many highlights, but you always come back to that 6.2-liter v8. in part because of its power but also because you see it through the windshield. this prominence is unfair to the parts surrounding it, but it's understandable. after all, an electronically controlled differential doesn't make a baritone war cry. carbon-fiber wings don't render tires into plumes of white smoke. and a sophisticated stability control system doesn't shoot flames. but what you learn about the most powerful and fastest corvette ever, after repeatedly circling the 2.5 miles that constitute the road atlanta racetrack, is that the zr1's marriage of a gonzo v8 to a suite of comprehensively integrated electronic controls makes for supercar performanc...





2019 toyota avalon first drive

with crossovers slowly supplanting traditional cars as the preferred choice for families, it seems as if the timing has never been worse to redesign a car in one of the segments most affected by the suv's rise: the full-size sedan. but these times of uncertainty in the large car market don't worry toyota as it prepares to sell the newest version of its flagship four-door, the avalon. the 2019 toyota avalon is totally redesigned with a sportier profile, revised powertrains, and new safety and infotainment features. the result is a comfortable cruiser that is easily one of the best cars in its class. but will anybody care?courting younger buyersfor the new avalon, toyota is setting its sights on younger buyers for its full-size sedan. according to toyota, the average age of customers in th...

2018 jeep wrangler long-term road test

2018 jeep wrangler: moab easter jeep safariby travis langness, staff writerthe easter jeep safari is a yearly event in moab, utah, that hosts pretty much every kind of stock, modified and owner-loved jeep you can think of, driving through the desert for a week. if it's got sand, mud, slick rock or dirt, you'll likely find a jeep trying to conquer it during the week before easter. the easter jeep safari has run for more than 50 years, and recently the folks at jeep have used it as an opportunity to showcase their newest vehicles, display a few concepts, and get to know their customer base. after all, if this is where the world's biggest jeep enthusiasts show up, why not ask them what they want on the next wrangler? this year, jeep had a lot to show with the release of the new, redesigned...

2018 ford f-150 long-term road test

2018 ford f-150: monthly update for march 2018by will kaufman, associate staff writerwhere did we drive it?our 2018 ford f-150 continues to be much in demand, both for its ability to do truckish things such as move large objects and its general comfort and ease as a daily commuter. it's certainly easier to enjoy the plush seats in a traffic jam when you're not personally footing the bill for gas. in march, the big ford didn't venture far from home base. it handled some light hauling, moved some furniture, and got a visit from a not-too-distant cousin, the new 2018 lincoln navigator. look to see mostly more praise this month, although we did find a few quirks we dislike.what kind of fuel economy did it get?we drove the ford 1,175 miles in march and managed to eke out an impressive-in-our...





2017 land rover discovery long-term road test

2017 land rover discovery: monthly update for march 2018by dan frio, automotive editorwhere did we drive it?march was a workaday month for our 2017 land rover discovery. we used it mostly in local driving and commuting roles, so its mileage fell below our typical monthly target.editor brent romans had it for a spell and formed several impressions of its real-world use, ranging from the usefulness of its air suspension, odd road-noise infiltration, and disappointing infotainment interface. on the other hand, passenger room and cargo space rated highly. what kind of fuel economy did it get?we drove the disco 1,305 miles in march, filling it up four times with 74 gallons of fuel. that averaged out to 17.6 mpg combined. that's better than last month's average of 15.4, but it wasn't enough t...





2018 toyota camry long-term road test

2018 toyota camry: monthly update for march 2018by kurt niebuhr, photo editorwhere did we drive it?our 2018 toyota camry drove through march anonymously. it came and went without much notice, which, to be honest, is probably what most camrys do. thankfully we have nothing much to report. unless, of course, you have to write an update like i do. that said, we did have a tropical encounter with one of our camry's cousins and we found a nice little detail about the trunk. hey, no one said camrys need to be exciting.what kind of fuel economy did it get?our camry only managed to cover about 600 miles in march, which is a bit disappointing. we usually like to see at least double that, but sometimes you just don't have anywhere to go. we're still not hitting the epa combined mpg rating, and we...





2018 kia stinger gt long-term road test

there was a curious car on the kia stand at the 2011 frankfurt international motor show. named the kia gt concept, it was a personal project of designers peter schreyer and gregory guillaume, who wanted to re-create an elegant gran turismo capable of crossing europe with style and pace. and while we could see a nod to the porsche panamera and the soon-to-be-released audi a7, concepts come and concepts go. kia wouldn't really build something like that, would it?when the 2014 north american international auto show rolled around, kia again had a concept wearing the stinger moniker, but this time prefaced with a "gt4." it was a coupe, and while it also looked like a hatchback, it was so far removed from the stinger gt concept that we more or less forgot that idea even existed. unbeknownst t...





2018 jeep wrangler long-term road test

2018 jeep wrangler: monthly update for march 2018by travis langness, staff writerwhere did we drive it?in the first month of our one-year test, we drove our new 2018 jeep wrangler nearly 2,000 miles. it might be a bit early for predictions, but the way this one is going, the jeep will hit the 20,000-mile mark well before a year is up. to get the odometer rolling, we drove the jeep back to los angeles from the las vegas dealership where we bought it. then we spent the next three weeks around town getting to know its character. short freeway trips, runs to the grocery store, and commuting to work all added up to an odometer reading of 2,251 miles. what kind of fuel economy did it get?driving back from las vegas with a loaded cargo bay and several short local trips don't make the wrangler's...





2017 tesla model 3 long-term road test

2017 tesla model 3: monthly update for march 2018by jonathan elfalan, road test managerwhere did we drive it?it was a busy month of learning with our 2017 tesla model 3, which meant it was also a busy month for vehicle testing technician rex tokeshi-torres, who was its primary chaperone. between vehicle repairs, software updates and learning what it takes to simply remove a wheel (news flash: it isn't simple), it's been an exciting few months so far.miles logged in march were mostly local, though we still managed to cover a decent amount of ground for an ev. our model 3 comparison test video is about to go live in just a couple weeks, so be sure to keep an eye on the youtubes for it. even better, subscribe to the edmunds youtube channel and get notified the moment it's posted.what kind ...
