By Jeff Perez – Motor1 The only thing we’ve ever really disliked about the Subaru Crosstrek Sport was how lethargic it was. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine simply wasn’t punchy enough, even for such a small crossover. But Subaru listened, and this year the company introduced a new Sport model that adds a

Make no mistake, the short-wheelbase version of our 2021 SUV of the Year winner is still a good thing, offering, like its longer sibling,

Take the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid for instance; does its class-leading power lead to a meaningful advantage in acceleration compared to the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata hybrids? We track-tested the Honda to find out. And after our First Drive review, we
