2017 honda cr-v long-term road test

2017 honda cr-v: monthly update for january 2018by will kaufman, associate staff writerwhere did we drive it?another month, another month of commuting. i haven't asked our long-term 2017 honda cr-v what its new year's resolution was, but hopefully it wasn't "go new places" because it spent january going to all the same places. it did get rained on, which made for a nice change, even if it also made for some blurry backup camera views. this month we have some dissenting comments from our nearly universal praise parade, as senior consumer advice editor ron montoya decides that maybe the cr-v isn't the compact crossover for him. otherwise, the cr-v's space and easy drivability continued to win it points. what kind of fuel economy did it get?commuting in los angeles is brutal on fuel ec...





2017 land rover discovery long-term road test

2017 land rover discovery: monthly update for january 2018by rex tokeshi-torres, vehicle testing technicianwhere did we drive it?normal is the new normal. after lengthy road trip adventures in its first couple of months, our 2017 land rover discovery settled into regular commuting duties in january. not that normal is a bad thing. now we get to see how it handles the cyclic, everyday routine of our editorial team.the second or third month of ownership is typically when a new car's glitz and glamour starts to wear off and owners start nitpicking things. we're no different, and we began to notice little annoyances and quirks with our discovery last month. a gremlin also reared its ugly head. was it just a minor glitch? we intended to find out.what kind of fuel economy did it get?the holida...





2017 jaguar f-pace long-term road test

2017 jaguar f-pace: monthly update for january 2018by carlos lago, senior writerwhere did we drive it?it's been a somewhat slow 31 days for our 2017 jaguar f-pace. after 10 months, this stylish suv is nearing the end of its stay in our long-term fleet, and many staffers have moved on to newer, shinier things. the biggest news items this month stem largely from maintenance. we received a recall notice for a problem in which the infotainment screen would randomly blank out, a problem travis langness detailed in our june 2017 update. we also discovered the double whammy of a crack and a chip in the windshield, so we'll have to replace it soon. and we still can't get used to the location of the window controls, no matter how many miles we log. what kind of fuel economy did it get?our f-pace...





2019 mercedes-benz c-class sedan to debut at 2018 geneva auto show

mercedes-benz today announced updates for its 2019 c-class sedan, which will debut at the 2018 geneva auto show in early march. significant changes to the refreshed luxury compact sedan include a more powerful engine, new front and rear bumpers, and a new suite of advanced driver assistance features. adaptive cruise control, as well as a system that reads speed-limit information and relays it to the driver, is included in the new group of driver assistance features, as is a blind-spot monitoring system that can apply brakes on a single side to prevent you from changing lanes to avoid an impact. a new advanced steering assistance system can help you stay in your lane, even through gradual turns, without touching the wheel, and it can even change lanes when you activate the turn signals. the...





2019 ford transit connect first look

when the 2019 ford transit connect goes on sale this fall, shoppers can choose from either the two-seat cargo van or the wagon version with three rows of seats to carry up to seven passengers. regular- or long-wheelbase versions will also be available to fit owners' particular needs. the transit connect wagon is fairly basic transportation for passengers since it lacks many of the creature comforts associated with more traditional minivans. one upside is that the seats fold flat from front to back, providing plenty of passenger-to-cargo flexibility.the differences between this new transit connect and its predecessor are most evident in its appearance. up front, the grille and headlights are more in line with ford's current styling, resembling the fusion sedan in many ways. both sides rec...





2019 toyota tundra trd pro first look

it's back. the 2019 toyota tundra trd pro returns from a one-year hiatus after quietly sitting out the 2018 model year. it is not an all-new truck or even a significant redesign, but the 2019 tundra trd pro pickup did receive a couple of specific mechanical revisions that stand to make it more desirable than ever.chief among them is the fitment of new 2.5-inch fox off-road shocks that employ an internal-bypass design. additionally, the rear units have piggyback-style external reservoirs to increase oil volume and heat capacity. the 2019 tundra trd pro is similar to its 2015-2017 predecessors in its higher stance and improved suspension articulation. that means 2 inches of front lift, a little over 1.5 inches of extra front-wheel travel, and a bit more than 2 inches of extra rear travel co...





2019 toyota 4runner trd pro first look

the 2019 toyota 4runner trd pro won't look much different than it does today and it's not getting fitted with a new engine, but the detail changes toyota has announced at the 2018 chicago auto show stand to make this popular off-road suv even more capable. many on the sidelines saw this upgrade coming because the toyota tacoma trd pro received it two years ago. the two vehicles share many front suspension components, so it was just a matter of time.we're talking about shock absorbers, specifically the switch from bilstein to fox 2.5-inch internal-bypass shocks. the bilsteins served the 4runner well, but they didn't have the ability to crank up the damping force as the suspension stroked closer and closer to its limits. the new fox shocks can do this readily, thanks to seven bypass zone...





2017 genesis g90 long-term road test

2017 genesis g90: monthly update for january 2018by mark takahashi, senior writerwhere did we drive it?our long-term 2017 genesis g90 kicked 2018 off with a series of road trips. i drove it from l.a. to las vegas for ces, and josh sadlier made yet another trip up to california's central coast. as expected, the g90 delivered the kind of silent luxury we seek on journeys like these. in keeping with its recent history, the genesis has also remained trouble-free.what kind of fuel economy did it get?we logged 1,921 miles in january and used 96.9 gallons of premium unleaded for an average of 19.8 mpg. that was an improvement on our lifetime average, but not enough to increase it. best fill and range also remained unchanged. average lifetime mpg: 19.2epa mpg rating: 20 combined (17 city/24 highw...

2018 bmw 540i xdrive: monthly update for january 2018by cameron rogers, staff writerwhere did we drive it?january was another busy month for our 2018 bmw 540i. it stuck around town for most of the month, racking up the majority of its 2,079 miles in the early part of the month. i added 800 more miles at the end of january, driving from my home east of downtown l.a. to cupertino in northern california, and was surprised by the 540i's excellent fuel economy throughout the trip.what kind of fuel economy did it get?the 540i managed an impressive 25.6 mpg over the 2,079 miles. that's the best monthly average to date, raising the lifetime average from 22.2 to 23.1 mpg, or a tick over its epa combined rating. we didn't set a new fill record (that was done by senior editor brent romans in decem...

2018 hyundai sonata hybrid first look

the hyundai sonata received a substantial midcycle refresh for the 2018 model year, with revamped styling inside and out, adjustments to suspension tuning, and a host of advanced safety features. at the 2018 chicago auto show, hyundai rolled out the latest additions to the lineup: the sonata hybrid and the plug-in hybrid.as expected, these new hybrid models adopt the latest styling cues from the current sonata. you'll find a new grille, headlights, hood, fenders, trunklid and taillights on the outside and a refreshed dashboard, instruments and steering wheel on the inside. these more fuel-efficient variants build on the standard sonata's strengths, which include a generous list of standard features, a spacious interior, easy-to-use tech and an industry-leading warranty. on sale in the fi...

2016 toyota prius: monthly update for january 2018by ronald montoya, senior consumer advice editorwhere did we drive it?our 2016 toyota prius traveled a scant 600 miles in january. most of those miles were for commutes to work, trips to the gym and running errands. not terribly exciting, but it's a good example of how most people will actually use this vehicle. in this month's logbook entries, there were a couple of observations on the prius' interior, the comfort of the driver's seat, its handling in the canyons, and even a rare compliment on its looks.what kind of fuel economy did it get?there were only two fill-ups in january. the prius averaged 49.4 mpg this month, which is consistent with our lifetime average of 49.7 mpg. this consistency is what makes the prius so good. drive it ...

2018 lexus rx 450hl pricing announced

we've known about the eventual existence of the 2018 lexus rx 450h l three-row hybrid suv ever since the 2018 rx 350l gasoline version was shown at last year's la auto show. the mechanical details were easy enough to surmise. all you needed to do was compare an existing rx 350 to an rx 450h and then look at the rx 350l on display and extrapolate by adding the same hybrid all-wheel-drive powertrain under its elongated skin.but that left three questions: when would lexus start selling it? how much would it cost? what would be the fuel economy?today we have the answers to two of those three questions. the rx 450hl awd goes on sale this april, and, like every other rx hybrid, it only comes in all-wheel-drive form. the base price will be $50,620, plus the usual $995 for shipping and handling....
