What Is The Best $30,000 Compact Crossover That Is Still Fun To Drive? 

My wife and I are a one car family, that is soon to be growing. It's time to trade the hot-hatch in for something a little bigger. She wants a safe, compact crossover with AWD. I don't want to give up having a quick car that is fun to toss around. Is it possible to have both for under $30,000? » 3/17/15 1:52pm 3/17/15 1:52pm

2016 Acura RDX: This Is It

Having set sales records every month for over two years, Honda is rewarding 2016 Acura RDX with a meaner face, more aggressive stance, and a few extra LEDs for good measure.

2016 Honda Pilot: This Is It

A complete photo gallery of the 2016 Honda Pilot has leaked ahead of the SUV's world debut slated for tomorrow. Looks more "CR-V on steroids" than ever before, and the proportions remind me of the newly minivanified Nissan Pathfinder. » 2/12/15 12:01am 2/12/15 12:01am

You Shouldn't Hate Crossovers, And Here's Why

Gearheads are still up in arms about crossovers taking over the car market just about everywhere in the world. Here's the thing: crossovers aren't new, and they aren't your enemy. They're taking back what was stolen from us half a century ago. » 12/12/14 3:30pm 12/12/14 3:30pm

SUVs Will Come Full Circle And Be Wagons Again Soon

At every prodigal SUV and crossover launch this year I was told about the same things: "sportiness," and "car-like qualities." Now that we've seen the 2016 Audi Q7, I'm almost convinced automakers are going to make SUVs sleeker and sleeker until they just turn into wagons again. » 12/12/14 1:46pm 12/12/14 1:46pm

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe: This Is It

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 AMG Coupe is an SUV that feels like a sports car. A cruiser that can pounce.

Brabus Finally Made An SUV That Doesn't Look Like An Evil Appliance

I'm not quite ready to call it "elegant," but the Brabus rear-grille-and-shark-gill treatment seems to work a lot better on the Mercedes GLA compact SUV than it does on the the blockier Gelandewagen and GL-Class. » 10/22/14 10:34am 10/22/14 10:34am

Swedish auto safety outfit Teknikens Värld are calling the Porsche Macan's performance "extremely strange" through their lane-change obstacle course they call "The Moose Test." Looks like the SUV's safety tech locks a wheel in a way other vehicles don't. » 10/14/14 5:03pm 10/14/14 5:03pm

QUARTZ Concept Proves Crossovers Could Be Sexy, And Downright Sinister

Peugeot is trying their very hardest to get us excited about yet another new crossover SUV with their QUARTZ concept for the Paris Auto Show. They threw down a fair effort alright– the thing looks like it could be Batman's off-road race car. » 9/18/14 3:54pm 9/18/14 3:54pm

The Range Rover Evoque Isn't Just a Mall-Crawler

Every so often, I'll grab my good friend Jeremy Cliff (who's appeared on Jalopnik at least once in the past), and we'll snap some pictures of a car that I'm reviewing for Web2Carz. This past week, we took a Range Rover Evoque to a local quasi-off-road area to see if we could have any fun with it. Spoiler Alert: We did. » 7/03/14 11:56am 7/03/14 11:56am

2015 Lincoln MKC First Drive: It's Surprisingly Not Bad

With its mainstay customer base dying off (literally) Lincoln desperately wants to be cool again. You're right to be skeptical of a brand attempting metamorphosis, but the 2015 Lincoln MKC makes a pretty strong case for a second coming of Ford's luxury line. » 6/04/14 11:57am 6/04/14 11:57am

No Fewer Than 20 New Crossovers Debuted In Beijing

Trucks and Crossovers are Not Just for Morons

Trucks (including crossovers and SUVs) will very likely surpass car sales this year. The "crossover" craze has been going on for about 10 years or so, but if you ask some people on the internet the vast majority of truck and crossover buyers are just "idiots who think they need something they don't."
