2019 Toyota Avalon first drive: Finally memorable

2019 Toyota Avalon first drive: Finally memorable

Toyota has pushed the boat out with the new 2019 Avalon, both figuratively and literally.

Cadillac Super Cruise Review: I like this more than Tesla Autopilot

Tesla may have convinced drivers that Autopilot is the pinnacle of driver-assistance technologies you can actually buy on a new car today, but Cadillac might have Elon Musk beat. Quietly added mid-year to the 2018 Cadillac CT6, Super Cruise is the first hands-off adaptive cruise control with lane-keeping system on the market.

Wireless CarPlay Review: 2018 BMW 640i GT cuts the cord

Android Auto Wireless may now be arriving on select phones and head-units, but iPhone owners wanting wireless CarPlay don't have to wait - it's available now. While there's plenty to like about the 2018 BMW 640i xDrive Gran Turismo, not least its 3.0-liter, 335 horsepower engine, I had one particular spec in mind for testing. With iPhone X supporting wireless charging, and CarPlay wireless available in a growing number of vehicles, is it worth spending more on the option if you're buying a new car?

LG needs more than fast software updates: What users really want

Given its relationship with Google over three Nexus phones as well as its past track record, you'd think LG was one of the better Android OEMs when it came to software updates.
