2017 Volkswagen Jetta Test Drive Review

If you want a manual gearbox in a compact car these days, it seems you either have to get a stripped-down base model or an optioned-up sport-tuned model. That isn’t the case with the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta SE. Like the base Jetta S, the SE trim level comes standard with a manual transmission and efficient engine, but it also adds in a long list of standard features. Bottom line, it’s the perfect middle ground for buyers looking to balance cost and amenities, and we got to spend a week in…

2017 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition Test Drive Review

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Test Drive Review

At the end of a commercial for the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, you’ll see the Italian words “La meccanica delle emozioni.” In English, those translate to “The mechanics of emotions.” It’s a fitting phrase given that Alfa Romeo creates machines that are designed to inspire feelings of joy, excitement, and pleasure. Here’s another phrase that applies to Alfa Romeo: “Never say never.” When Alfa Romeo left the U.S. market in the mid-1990s, it was uncertain whether the automaker would ever again sell its vehicles in the country whose film industry…
