NWAPA Run to the Sun: Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Wins Most Fun SUV

Sport utility vehicles have come a long way. No longer are they warmed-rigs work rigs that bounce over bumps and steer like a battleship. In fact, there are loads of good offerings if you’re looking for a SUV that’ll haul more than cargo. But in my experience, nothing does it with quite the gusto and style of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. And that’s why it won the Performance SUV category at Northwest Automotive Press Association’s 13th annual Run to the Sun. Whenever I’m behind the wheel of this Italian…

S60 vs S90: Which Volvo Sedan is Right For You?

For this episode, we’re changing it up a bit. We’re going to lay out the differences between the Volvo S60 and S90, and give you an idea of which would be the best fit for you. Now obviously, there are a bunch of similarities between the S60 and the S90, given that they’re both sedans from the same manufacturer. But they each appeal to a different set of buyers, even if the infotainment, styling, and — since we’re talking Volvo here — safety elements, have a family resemblance. Over the…

Apple Announces Big Redesign for CarPlay: Video

When Apple does anything, it’s big news. Of course, the company’s announcement that the new Mac Pro — which very much resembles a cheese grater — will start at a whopping $6,000 got loads of attention. As did the announcement that iTunes is officially being put out to pasture. But there’s also news to report about CarPlay, and it looks like Apple has made some big improvements to the already popular system. While we’ll have to wait to see how the new versions perform during test drives, what we’ve seen…
