2021 BMW M440i Convertible Review

2021 BMW M440i Convertible Review

I could spend twelve paragraphs talking about BMW's grille-of-the-moment, but it all really boils down to whether or not you like the 2021 M440i Convertible's outsized snout and - should you not - if the fact you don't see it while you're driving is sufficient aesthetic distance. Time has blunted some of the shock & awe of the 4-Series' fascia, though I still think it's easier to stomach in darker forms as on the M4.

SWFT Fleet Review

SWFT Fleet Review

The SWFT Fleet is an electric bicycle with a classic beach cruiser style and a 37.2-mile range. The bike has a 19.8 MPH top speed courtesy of a 500W motor inside, and it works with a single rechargeable, removable battery that takes approximately 6 hours to go from totally empty to totally full. This is a big, high-quality electric bike the likes of which have scarcely been out-done in the world today.

2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 Coupe Review

2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 Coupe Review

Arguments among auto enthusiasts may come and go, but the contents of the "perfect" one car garage can always be counted upon to start enthusiastic discussion. The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E53 Coupe may be too politely-German to wade into that debate itself, but it's not hard to imagine its blend of long-distance cruiser and 429 horsepower could see it boast some vocal devotees.

2022 Genesis G70 3.3T Review

2022 Genesis G70 3.3T Review

Genesis can do no wrong right now. New SUVs and crossovers storming up the popularity charts with their combination of style, distinctive luxury, and focused pricing, while its line-up of sedans casts skepticism on the idea that that's a dying segment. Arriving to shore up the range is the refreshed 2022 Genesis G70, smallest and most affordable of the sports sedans.

2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Review

2021 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Review

Purists may argue over which generation of Miata is best, but few enthusiasts would disagree with the fact that Mazda's two-door is the epitome of the modern, attainable sports car. This fourth-gen "ND" version again sees the range split in two: the regular Miata, and this 2021 MX-5 Miata RF with a nifty folding hard-top roof.

2021 Toyota Camry TRD Review

2021 Toyota Camry TRD Review

Perennially popular and professionally bland, the Toyota Camry may be America's best-selling sedan but it still seems an odd place to start when you're trying to build a sports car. Word of that incongruence doesn't appear to have reached Toyota, and hence this 2021 Camry TRD - the latest in a series of models to bear the "Toyota Racing Development" tuning division's branding.

2021 Lexus UX 200 Review

2021 Lexus UX 200 Review

The 2021 Lexus UX 200 isn't just the automaker's smallest SUV, it's the most affordable model in the whole line-up. Kicking off at $33k, the UX looks far more expensive than it actually is, with arguably the best example of Lexus' at-times-divisive design language so far.

2021 Hyundai Venue Review

2021 Hyundai Venue Review

The 2021 Hyundai Venue isn't just considerably cheaper than the average new vehicle sold in the US, it's actually cheaper than the average used car price right now. At $18,750 (plus $1,185 destination) the diminutive crossover is a member of the shrinking list of sub-$20k new cars, and you'd be forgiven for assuming - as I did - that along the line something would have to give.

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness Review

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness Review

Subaru gives you all-wheel drive as standard, and the 2022 Outback Wilderness would like to make a suggestion as to just what you should do with it: roam well off the beaten path. The automaker's newest trim level, Wilderness have started out on the Outback but it's already spreading through the rest of the range - most recently to the new Forester - but there's more to see here than just a badge.

2021 Toyota Sienna Review

2021 Toyota Sienna Review

Minivans may not strum the limbic system in the same way that, say, a sports car or burly SUV might, but if the thought of cunning organization and the odd trip to IKEA sends shivers down your spine then there's a whole lot to like about the 2021 Toyota Sienna. Completely redesigned with a hybrid-only drivetrain and bolder design, the Sienna makes no apologies for its minivan identity, and ends up all the more impressive for it.

2022 Kia Carnival Review

2022 Kia Carnival Review

You could accuse Kia of trickery with the 2022 Carnival, a minivan that pretends to be an SUV, but sometimes you have to sugar the medicine that people need to take. Practical, flexible, and capable modern minivans may be, but for many drivers they're still far from desirable, even if in a lot of cases they'd be the most sensible option.

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport Review

2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport Review

"Good" isn't always "memorable," something the 2021 Lexus ES 250 AWD F Sport proves to be a forgettable reminder of. Neither as enthusiastic as the smaller IS, as lavish as the LS, or as ubiquitous as the RX and NX, the midsize sedan feels generally as solid and conscientious as you'd hope from the Lexus badge on the gaping grille. It just struggles with personality.
