The 2021 Kia Telluride blocks out a distinct place in the crossover SUV realm—as our Best Car To Buy 2020. With the 2020 Telluride, Kia can tote up to eight passengers, with available all-wheel drive and all the luxury fittings it applies to some of its most expensive sedans. It’s an excellent value even in

The 2021 Hyundai Sonata banks on fewer rivals competing for buyers of mid-size sedans. The way it’s chosen to surface in the still-congested group: dramatic flair, along with lots of features and value. With the Sonata, Hyundai’s shaped a silhouette with luxury overtones, crafted a cabin with the same, and stocked it all with some

Hyundai offers the 2021 six different ways, but smart buyers will stay tuned to the middle versions. Based on those models, we give the Tucson a 9 for features, with points for its value, warranty, infotainment, and standard features. The $24,840 Tucson SE offers the lower-output engine, cloth upholstery, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with

Cadillac’s three-row hauler not called “Escalade” returns this year for family shoppers. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 adds a turbo-4 engine on lower trims for a lower entry price and wireless smartphone compatibility. We rate it at 7.0 overall, which is buoyed by good safety scores and good room inside. Three-row competitors are all elbows these

The 2021 Hyundai Kona would like your attention, please. Now. It’s a small crossover SUV with economy-car roots, but the 2021 Kona has fancy hardware, from all-wheel drive to a dual-clutch transmission to an all-electric companion—and it’s all wrapped in a shape that demands you notice it.  Sold in SE, SEL, Ultimate, and Limited versions—and

The Palisade may not offer many options—packages are the way to gain features, take them all or leave them—but it runs the table on features. For its warranty, value, infotainment, and standard gear, we give it a 9. Whether it’s a Palisade SE, SEL, Limited, or Calligraphy, Hyundai’s largest crossover comes with active safety features,

The 2021 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty pickup hog mollies are back this year—how could you miss them? Mechanically related to the Chevrolet Silverado HD twins, the GMC versions are comparatively a little more rock ‘n’ roll. New this year are versions of the pickup that take it further off-road (X31) and take it further into

A new face and improved tech are just the start for the 2021 Audi Q5. As the automaker’s ‘tweener crossover between the smaller (but still big) Q3 and bigger (and even bigger) three-row Q7, the Q5 is a segue to electrification-curious shoppers, and even some performance-leaning shoppers. Blunter: The 2021 Q5 needs to do a

Succinct as it is accurate, “It’s a Subaru” pretty well describes the 2021 Subaru Ascent three-row crossover SUV. All-wheel drive? Check. Horizontally opposed engine? Yup. Room for people and gear? Uh-huh. Hard-wearing interior? Sure. The 2021 Subaru Ascent soldiers into the new year with minimal changes on what’s been a reliable formula so far. The

A Lexus coupe or convertible might be the best way to take a hammer to that ginormous change jug or piggy bank you’ve had going since elementary school. An 84-month loan would be OK, too, we guess. For less than $100,000, the 2021 Lexus LC has all the standard touches expected from a car that

Cadillac learned from the mistakes of the ATS and CTS by equipping the 2020 CT4 with plenty of standard features at an impressive starting price of $33,990. That’s taking a page from the Genesis playbook. No fool, Cadillac takes a separate page from the Germans by offering options and packages that can easily total more

The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has a strong warranty and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, but lacks much more in the way of content. We give it 6 out of 10 for features. At around $23,000 to start, the Eclipse Cross ES is a value-oriented model, with few creature comforts beyond a 7.0-inch

The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport costs about $23,500 in base ES trim, which undercuts many competitors, but is an $850 increase over 2019. All-wheel drive adds $1,500 on each model. The Outlander Sport gets 6 out of 10 in this category. In addition to the active safety features standard on SE and higher trims, all

The 2020 Lincoln Navigator marks a return to form for American luxury SUVs. It’s a massive, stylish land yacht that makes no apologies for its glitz and opulence. It’s easily Lincoln’s best model on sale, and the most comfortable vehicle to wear the badge in decades. We give it 7.4 out of 10 overall. (Read

As luxury brands issue new SUVs with abandon, cars like the 2020 Lincoln MKZ get overlooked.  With the MKZ Lincoln still offers a solid value in premium sedans, one with potent powertrains. But the MKZ’s interior never has shone, and it never delivered on the promise so extravagantly on display in Lincolns from the Aviator
