The 2021 Toyota Land Cruiser is a full-time four-wheel-drive icon with a handful of luxury touches. The Toyota Land Cruiser SUV is an icon. Its go-anywhere, haul-anything attitude is a direct link between utility vehicles from the past and modern luxury SUVs of today. It’s nostalgic and useful in all the right ways, but it’s

Pert and perky, the 2021 Honda HR-V is no lumbering SUV; it’s hardly a crossover, though its front-wheel-drive hatchback essentials can be fortified with all-wheel drive. The 2021 HR-V carries over from the year before unchanged, but it’s alone at the bottom of the Honda lineup now that the Fit has been canceled. With the

If the DOT hadn’t invented double-yellow lines, the Honda CR-V would have been a great marker for the middle of the road. Honda fits the CR-V crossover with either a 1.5-liter turbo-4, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and front- or all-wheel drive—or a hybridized version, with electric motor and battery grafted on to a non-turbo-4.

The difference in Performance and Long Range trims mostly comes down to performance, not features. But with an evolutionary infotainment system, over-the-air updates that keep the car as fresh as a smartphone, and good standard equipment, we give it an 8 out of 10.  The most noticeable feature spans overhead. A tinted glass roof stretches

When thinking about certain modern classics, nostalgia tends to hit like a train. And it’s even worse whenever you’re out driving, because it seems like there’s a BMW 3-Series E46 around every corner, and practically every petrolhead loves an M3 from that very same generation. Depending on the model, miles and overall condition, the best

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata banks on fewer rivals competing for buyers of mid-size sedans. The way it’s chosen to surface in the still-congested group: dramatic flair, along with lots of features and value. With the Sonata, Hyundai’s shaped a silhouette with luxury overtones, crafted a cabin with the same, and stocked it all with some

Hyundai offers the 2021 six different ways, but smart buyers will stay tuned to the middle versions. Based on those models, we give the Tucson a 9 for features, with points for its value, warranty, infotainment, and standard features.

Cadillac’s three-row hauler not called “Escalade” returns this year for family shoppers. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 adds a turbo-4 engine on lower trims for a lower entry price and wireless smartphone compatibility.

The 2021 Hyundai Kona would like your attention, please. Now.

The Palisade may not offer many options—packages are the way to gain features, take them all or leave them—but it runs the table on features. For its warranty, value, infotainment, and standard gear, we give it a 9. Whether it’s a Palisade SE, SEL, Limited, or Calligraphy, Hyundai’s largest crossover comes with active safety features,

The 2021 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickup hog mollies are back this year—how could you miss them? Mechanically related to the Chevrolet Silverado HD twins, the GMC versions are comparatively a little more rock ‘n’ roll. New this year are versions of the pickup that take it further off-road (X31) and take it further into

A new face and improved tech are just the start for the 2021 Audi Q5. As the automaker’s ‘tweener crossover between the smaller (but still big) Q3 and bigger (and even bigger) three-row Q7, the Q5 is a segue to electrification-curious shoppers, and even some performance-leaning shoppers. Blunter: The 2021 Q5 needs to do a

Succinct as it is accurate, “It’s a Subaru” pretty well describes the 2021 Subaru Ascent three-row crossover SUV. All-wheel drive? Check. Horizontally opposed engine? Yup. Room for people and gear? Uh-huh. Hard-wearing interior? Sure. The 2021 Subaru Ascent soldiers into the new year with minimal changes on what’s been a reliable formula so far. The

A Lexus coupe or convertible might be the best way to take a hammer to that ginormous change jug or piggy bank you’ve had going since elementary school. An 84-month loan would be OK, too, we guess. For less than $100,000, the 2021 Lexus LC has all the standard touches expected from a car that
