Upscale Fun: 2019 Volkswagen Jetta SE Test Drive Review

As it usually goes, our first test drive review of the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta had us sampling one of the compact sedan’s higher trim levels, the SEL – the second-highest version of the Jetta after the SEL Premium trim with some impressive class-exclusive features. Even the lower trims come well equipped, though, which we found out with our seat time in the Jetta SE. How does this decontented seventh-generation Jetta stack up against its compact sedan rivals like the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra? We spent a week…

Third Time’s The Charm: 2019 Honda Insight Review

It’s been 20 years since Honda launched the Honda Insight, which holds the honor of being the first gas-electric hybrid vehicle in the U.S. The all-new 2019 Honda Insight will be Honda’s fourth dedicated hybrid model in the U.S. (after the first- and second-gen Insight and the CR-Z), and it takes a far more traditional approach than its predecessors. This, in large part, is thanks to the fact that the Insight is now based off the current tenth-generation Honda Civic (and produced at the same Greensburg, Indiana assembly plant), but…

Bold and Luxurious: 2019 GMC Acadia Denali Test Drive Review

In 2017, almost one-third of all GMC trucks, crossovers and SUVs sold came in the brand’s highest trim level: Denali. This makes sense as the Denali lineup has grown from a single vehicle in 1999 to encompass GMC’s entire lineup for the 2019 model year from the compact Terrain all the way up to the full-size Yukon SUV and Sierra truck lineups. Right in the middle of all these models is the 2019 GMC Acadia Denali, which brings this bold, luxurious trim level to the popular mid-size crossover segment. 2019…

Hauls Way More Than Cargo: Mercedes-AMG GLS63 Test Drive

In the not-so-distant past, only high-performance sports cars were able to achieve a zero-to-60 mph time in the four-second range. Today, this acceleration accomplishment is still a notable, yet not as restrictive, feat, and the 2018 Mercedes-AMG GLS63 is a prime example. Despite weighing almost three tons, the GLS63 can sprint from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds, and it can comfortably seat seven passengers at the same time. So what’s it like driving a full-size SUV that thinks it’s a sports car? We spent a week in this 2018 Mercedes-AMG…

Large, Luxurious, Legendary: 2018 Lexus LX 570 Test Drive

What happens when you mix a luxurious Lexus LS with a go-anywhere Toyota Land Cruiser? You get the 2018 Lexus LX 570. The full-size LX was Lexus’ first-ever SUV when it debuted in 1995, and while the market for crossovers has grown immensely since then, this rough and rugged luxury SUV still plays an important role at the top of Lexus’ expansive CUV/SUV lineup that also includes the RX, GX, NX and the all-new UX. The 2018 Lexus LX 570 is a perfect rival for plush SUVs like the Cadillac…
