As Tesla protests, what exactly is IIHS’ small overlap front test?

The Tesla Model S and Model X are the safest cars in history... unless they're not. The variations in automotive crash testing are once again under the microscope, with Tesla protesting the latest batch of IIHS results after the Model S electric sedan failed again to ace the controversial small overlap frontal test.

The move is part of the French government's attempt to meet the emissions targets it has committed to for the Paris climate accord, the pact by most in the global community to voluntarily reduce their contribution to climate change. However, unsurprisingly the switchover won't happen overnight.

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

This week the Motorola-made Moto E4 for Verizon is on our review desk, and things are looking up. This device is one of the lowest-cost Motorola smartphones ever made, made to take the place of the Moto G as king of the budget smartphones. Where the Moto G was one of the most inspiring low-cost high-quality phones made in the past half-decade, the Moto E4 is the less-hyped but better-suited tiny monster that's now the best value smartphone available through Verizon - and soon other carriers, too.

5 things you need to know about the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

5 things you need to know about the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF

Mazda isn't going to build a coupe version of its iconic MX-5 Miata roadster, so please stop asking. What it will do is try to dip back into the nearly 50/50 split it had on the previous-generation Miata between soft-top and power-retractable hardtop models by way of the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. Those two letters stand for 'retractable fastback,' and signal to buyers that this unique take on open-air motoring is as close to a fixed-roof Miata as you'll find in the automaker's current showroom.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT First Drive: 5 things you need to know

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT First Drive: 5 things you need to know

Compact hatchbacks like the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT have never really caught on in America, but it has little to do with their merits. Easy to park, cheap on gas, and remarkably practical, the fickle gods of fashion have long turned their backs on the humble hatch, a state of affairs made all the more ironic by the exploding popularity of small SUVs, which are essentially hatchbacks on stilts.

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

The JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod makes the Moto Z2 Play downright thick. I'd laid hands on a few Moto Mods before and I'd even used the Moto Z for a while when it was first revealed. But until now, I'd not been convinced that Motorola's implementation of a modular smartphone accessory system was worth the effort. With the release of the second wave of Moto Mods with the Moto Z2 and the Moto Z2 Play, I've seen the light. And it comes from the speaker masters at JBL.

The actual anniversary is of the market release of the 1st-gen iPhone, which came to stores on June 29th, 2007. Back then, the mobile phone market was a very different place than it is today. So very many buttons! What did LG, Samsung, Motorola, and HTC have then - and what do they have now?

Cadillac Super Cruise First Drive: Trusting the machine

Cadillac Super Cruise First Drive: Trusting the machine

It was, conservatively, 90 seconds before I was satisfied Cadillac's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system wasn't going to kill me. By that point, a combination of cameras, super-accurate maps, and a fancier-than-usual GPS system were keeping me dead-center at 65 mph on California's 280, headed north toward San Francisco. As the CT6 eased its way around the corners, I spent a few moments considering that the car of the future apparently communicates not with the voice of Mr Feeny from Boy Meets World, but with a glowing green steering wheel instead.
