2021 Subaru Crosstrek Sport

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 aContinue Reading

2021 Nissan Kicks

By: Jeff Perez – Motor1 We have a lot of love for the little Nissan Kicks. The pint-sized crossover has a big driving personality, approachable styling, and great standard safety features.

2021 Toyota Camry XSE Hybrid First Test

By Nick Yekikian – MotorTrend When we tested the 2020 Toyota Camry TRD, we came away confused. Its exhaust sounded great, but it rode harshly and was missing key amenities from higher Camry trims. Frankly, it betrayed the Camry’s core mission of being a usable, easily approachable daily driver, and it underdelivered onContinue Reading

2021 Land Rover Defender 90

By Angus MacKenzie – MotorTrend Less is more. Well, maybe. In the case of the 2021 Land Rover Defender 90, less is most definitely less—17.1 inches less, to be precise. 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,Continue Reading

2021 Honda Accord Hybrid First Test

By Zach Gale – MotorTrend More power doesn’t always translate to superior performance. 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, weContinue Reading
