Wow. Wow. Wow.

The $157,000 Polestar 1 is a spectacular insight into what Volvo’s new brand can achieve. It’s also the best car China has ever built

The Polestar 1 is a 619-horsepower, high-performance, high-priced, gas-hybrid GT car that's the first vehicle from Volvo's new standalone brand.

I drove over 50 cars, trucks, and SUVs in 2019. Here are the features I didn’t like.

Most vehicles are quite good, and many are impressive. But there are always some that have features I find annoying.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

The $136,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is a staggeringly good luxury sport SUV. We tested it to see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is still the bes...

Nobody thought Porsche could pull off an SUV that was also a Porsche. They were so, so wrong. And the Cayenne remains brilliant.

The $46,000 Mercedes-Benz A220 is the newest entry point to the famous luxury brand. We tested it to see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is wort...

The car I tested was packed with extras and technology. The A220 is fun to drive, easy on gas, and a great introduction to the Mercedes way of life.

Cadillac’s $52,000 XT4 crossover is a tiny but mighty compact luxury SUV. Let’s see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is worth the mon...

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 fills out the brand's luxury crossover lineup, joining the XT5 compact SUV and the just-launched XT6 three-row midsize.
The Nissan Leaf SL Plus.

We drove a $44,000 Nissan Leaf Plus to figure out if this 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is ready to take on Tesla

The Leaf Plus serves up to 226 miles on a single charge and has a powerful motor. It's a dandy EV and well worth a look.
The Lamborghini Urus is a beast.

We drove a $250,000 Lamborghini Urus SUV to see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up was equal to the hype — here’s the verdict

The Lamborghini Urus is, according to the Italian automaker, the world's first "super-sport utility vehicle."
Lookin' sharp, old boy.

I drove a $47,000 Jaguar XE to find out if this British sports sedan could take on BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and Alfa Romeo

Combining style and joyful driving, the Jaguar XE is held back by a weak infotainment system, but it's still worth a look.
The new and definitely improved Audi Q3.

I drove a $45,000 Audi Q3 to see if a revamping of this premium crossover would change my mind about the SUV — here’s the verdict

I wasn't confused by the larger, snappier Audi Q3, which turned in a more Porsche-like performance than its predecessor.
The Tesla Model 3

I drove a $57,500 Tesla Model 3 and a $44,000 Nissan Leaf — here’s how these all-electric cars stacked up

The Leaf has been in the electric-vehicle market for longer, but the Model 3 was among the best cars I drove in all of 2018.
