Surprisingly Quick: 2018 Hyundai Kona 1.6T Test Drive

Competition in the subcompact crossover segment is getting pretty heated. Leading the segment are the Honda HR-V, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3, and the Toyota CH-R. New additions like the Nissan Kicks and the Hyundai Kona are hoping to grab a piece of the pie. Now, most of these crossovers are available with an engine that produces around 140 horsepower, but the 2018 Hyundai Kona is one of the few models out there available with a second, more powerful engine option.

A Go-Kart for the Road: 2018 Toyota 86 GT Test Drive Review

We have a soft spot for tiny affordable sports cars with a substantial amount of horsepower and a manual gearbox. Every time we test something like the Mazda MX-5 Miata or the Volkswagen Golf GTI, we are pretty excited to see how far we can push them. We recently test drove the 2018 Toyota 86 GT and while there is a new 2019 model year, all the mechanicals are essentially the same. In a world obsessed with crossovers and taking Ubers, the Toyota 86 is a refreshing sports car that…
