2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Hybrid First Drive: Reaching past the Prius rainbow

2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Hybrid First Drive: Reaching past the Prius rainbow

Hyundai's Ioniq initiative is more than just a green flare rising up from the sea of increasingly electrified automotive options. The decision to introduce a family of not one, not two, but a trio of new environmentally-friendly automobiles - the Ioniq Hybrid, the Ioniq Electric, and later this year, the Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid - is the second wind for Hyundai's self-celebration as a major automotive player after last year's launch of the Genesis luxury sub-brand. In many ways, this eco after-party is even more significant than the Genesis project, given that the premium market promises eventual profits. No one, it must be noted, makes anything resembling real money on hybrids and EVs, which means that Hyundai is building these cars in large part to demonstrate to the rest of the world that it can afford to do so - and do so comfortably.

HTC U Ultra Review: Flawed Beauty

HTC U Ultra Review: Flawed Beauty

The fans won't want to hear it, but HTC has made a misstep with the HTC U Ultra. Flagship follow-up to last year's HTC 10, it promises high-style and plenty of functionality to go with its premium $749 price tag, and there's no denying that its high-gloss glass body caught my magpie-like eye. All the same, some questionable hardware decisions have left me frustrated.

Samsung Galaxy S8 hands-on with Galaxy S8+ – To Infinity & beyond

There's a whole lot riding on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in 2017. Samsung's new flagship Android smartphones - clocking in at 5.8-inches and 6.2-inches respectively - debut a new "Infinity Display" with razor-thin bezels, a promising voice agent called Bixby, and make the case for why a Galaxy phone should be at the center of the Internet of Things. In short, not only do they have to mount a pre-emptive attack on the iPhone 8, but the S8 and S8+ need to give their creator some much-needed good news.

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country First Drive: A wagon America can love

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country First Drive: A wagon America can love

When is a wagon not a wagon? Why, when it's a Volvo Cross Country, of course. The nameplate has graced several cars since it first appeared - in abbreviated "XC" form - back in 1997, building up no small fanbase along the way. Fast forward to today, and you're looking at the 2017 V90 Cross Country, the car Volvo is hoping will coax well-heeled outdoors types out of their SUVs and crossovers, and into something altogether more Swedish. Not bad for a metallic brown wagon.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review – The grandest adventure yet

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild review – The grandest adventure yet

I'm just going to admit it right off the bat: I haven't been on board the Breath of the Wild hype train this entire time. When Nintendo first started showing the game off, alongside the promises it made about a truly open world and a reinvention for the Zelda franchise, I was skeptical. I didn't think Nintendo could deliver on its promises. After all, for the past 20 years, Zelda has been anything but open world – aside from a slight detour from the tried-and-true formula in A Link Between Worlds on the 3DS. I thought, if anything, Breath of the Wild would just be a console version of that.
