PostHeaderIcon 7 Practical Mid-Engined Grand Tourers that Came Before the McLaren GT

The new McLaren GT took the market by storm as the most practical mid-engined sports car available. It has a combined 20.1 cubic feet of luggage room, luxury features inside the cabin, and a powerful V-8 engine. It’s definitely a unique car if you factor all these details in, but it’s not the first practical mid-engined car. This design goes back a few decades, and we’re going to check out some of the most interesting creations of the past 50 years.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Cars You Can Now Legally Import in 2019

Every year, several awesome 25-year-old cars become eligible for import in the U.S. without regard to whether they comply with the DOT Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

This law enables us to drive some incredibly cool cars and considering that 2019 is exactly 25 years after 1994, I give you a list of astonishing vehicles you can import from all over the world.

It is important to note that the 25 year period starts from the date of the vehicle’s production. You can prove it with the vehicle documentation, first registration document, or by a
recognized vehicle historical society that can identify the age of the vehicle.

Among many greats from 1994, I’ve picked up a few obvious choices and a few secret gems. If you see something you like, it’ll be worth it to have a piece of rare Non-U.S.-spec automotive history.

PostHeaderIcon Best Car for Elderly Passengers

There is a car suiting any need. The only catch is to find it. This time I bring you twelve best cars for elderly passengers. It is a tough pick as elderly, disabled, or handicapped passengers all have unique needs and while some, for example, may find a car with a high riding position suitable, others may not. Thus, I give you a list of twelve vehicles for elderly passengers that suit any need.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for Car Seats

You may not need it now but, sooner or later, it’s likely that you’ll be on the market for a car that plays the part of a family transporter well. As you’ll find out – or as you’ve already discovered – transporting your infant kids in the car requires you to get a car seat and, while this process in itself is not easy, getting it correctly fitted inside your car can be a hassle too. That’s why we’ve listed ten cars that you should really consider looking into if you have small children or if you’re planning to start a family and want everyone aboard to enjoy a safe ride at all times.

First of all, you must remember that all vehicles made after September 1, 2002, come equipped with a Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system so you won’t have to worry if that system is in place when buying a new car. However, not all cars are particularly family friendly since what you’re looking for is something big enough for both the cargo and the people you’ll be carrying and also one that’s easy to use and it’s also versatile – if you waste many minutes day in and day out getting your kids in and out of the car, you’ve got yourself the wrong car.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for 3 Car Seats

If you’re in the market for a car or an SUV that can haul luggage for more than five people for a weekend getaway, you have plenty of options to choose from. But what about the kids and their car seats? As a parent of a growing family, one of the toughest tasks is to fit three car seats into a vehicle. You will naturally be inclined towards getting a three-row SUV for this purpose, but let us tell you that it is not as simple as it looks like. Back in the day, there were barely any cars that offered three full sets of latches for you to tie the seats down. Even today, the majority of them provide two sets of latches and one make-do tether for the middle seat. However, with all the stress on safety these days, automakers have become a little sensitive and offer their products with latches for three car seats. So, here’s a list of the best cars for 3 car seats that we have compiled for you.

PostHeaderIcon Best Sports Cars by Weight

We typically judge performance cars by their power ratings and 0-to-60 mph times, but we tend to overlook the importance of power-to-weight ratios. Colin Chapman, the founder of Lotus Cars, was among the first to realize that “adding” lightness was better than adding power. The man who designed the iconic Lotus Seven, and other lightweight sports cars, once said that “adding power makes you faster on the straight, subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.” But is this still true in an era when automakers and most enthusiasts are crazy for horsepower and lower 0-to-60 sprints?

Definitely. While most vehicles are becoming increasingly heavier due to new, advanced technology and safety regulations, some carmakers still follow Chapman’s philosophy and focus on lightweight construction rather than powerful engines. Here’s a list of cars that aren’t awfully powerful, but boast impressive power-to-weight ratios thanks to their lightweight designs.

PostHeaderIcon Cool Electric Cars Worth Waiting For (And Why They Matter)

The electric car snowball has been growing rapidly in recent years and, at this point, it’s only a matter of time before the trend will make the transition to norm. While nowadays most carmakers offer some sort of electrification in their lineups, 2020 is expected to bring a sustained push in this direction, with more and more manufacturers joining (or strengthening) the electric bandwagon.

What are we looking at exactly? For starters, a lot of “first-ever” electric cars coming from reputed brands that have a solid history in a given field – take Porsche and sports cars, for example.

Then, we should be in for the rise of unusual suspects, such as China’s BYD, joined by promising startups like Rivian and even boutique carmakers – that’s right, we’re looking at Croatia’s Rimac Automobili but also Pagani, which has recently signaled the intention to build an all-electric hypercar.

So, without further ado, here’s what we think should be on every car enthusiast’s watchlist when it comes to electric cars with coolness as their middle name.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for Cyclists

While some bicyclists may have it out for car drivers and some car drivers may harbor animosity towards bicyclists, there are still people out there who both like to drive and bike, without feeling like they’re betraying one community or the other. For those people we’ve assembled this list of cars that are not only good at carrying bicycles around, but are also genuinely good and pleasant cars.

These days you can pretty much fit a bike in any new car bar the smallest city runabouts, especially since most modern bikes have an easily removable front wheel that makes things so much easier. With that in mind, I’ve assembled the list of cars below and I tried to include one from all major categories of cars on sale today, from SUVs to subcompacts, all of which can and will swallow at least one bike whole (some more than one bike).

We’ve already covered the best wins right here, but what about the big misses? What about the lamest special editions and the weakest model updates? Welp, we’ve got ‘em compiled right here in the following Worst In Show list.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Auto Shanghai – Best In Show

Although the Chinese car market is currently undergoing a sales slump, it’s still the biggest car market in the world. No surprise then that the recent Auto Shanghai show brought out oodles of attractive new debuts, many of which provide clues as to what’ll arrive on these shores in the near future. As such, we’ve got the best of the best lined up right here in the following list.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 New York Auto Show – Best In Show

Last week, the world’s biggest automakers swarmed the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to show off their latest and greatest models, delivering a host of fresh sedans, crossovers, and concepts to an auto-hungry public. As such, we’ve compiled all the hottest reveals right here for your perusal and enjoyment.

PostHeaderIcon Looking to Invest In a Classic Car? These ‘90s-Era Japanese Imports Could Be the Smart Move

Nostalgia can be a very powerful thing, especially when it comes to cars. Just look at the recent surge in high-spec muscle machines, which was driven primarily by demand from the baby boomer generation. Now, as millennials get older and start to accrue a little extra disposable income, the classic car market is starting to shift, from big blocks and American iron to turbochargers and JDM canyon killers. This is the generation that grew up on The Fast and the Furious, Initial D, and drifting, and their four-wheeled predilections follow suit. As such, we put together this list of 10 ‘90s-era Japanese sports car that could become very valuable over the next few decades.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for Kayakers and Canoeists

People these days are actively getting into adventure sports. Paddlesports such as kayaking and canoeing are a few of the most popular forms of activities. But how do you carry your kayaks and paddles to the creek? Even though automakers provide utility packages on some of their models, things can still get pretty tight and rough. Tying them up on ’non-compatible’ cars sure plays the party spoiler before even the fun could begin. To get that out of your mind and to make sure you look forward to your paddle-sporting every weekend, we have listed ten vehicles that are the best on the market for kayaking and canoeing.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for Lyft and Uber Drivers

With the surge of popularity of the ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber, it seems that we are on the verge of creating whole new vehicle segments focused solely on satisfying the needs ridesharing users have. Obviously, Lyft and Uber aren’t the only ones in the ridesharing world, but they are the most popular.

With that said, both the drivers and the passengers do expect certain qualities of their rides. After my research, I have picked up ten best cars for Uber and Lyft ride-sharing services.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for Snow

Technology has evolved so much in recent years that almost all cars have four-season capability nowadays. However, some of them are hard to drive in the winter, when front- and rear-wheel driven layouts tend to slip or become stuck in the snow. Fortunately, automakers are now offering AWD systems on a wide variety of models, so you are no longer restricted to only a handful of them, mostly SUVs.

In 2019 you can also buy sedans, hatchbacks, and even supercars with AWD, which makes life a bit easier if you live in the Northern United States. So, if you’re in the market for a winter-prepped vehicle, here’s a list of AWD cars, ranging from trucks to compacts, to consider.

PostHeaderIcon The Best Cars for Learning How to Drive Manual

Do you remember the fateful day when you first got in a car ready to understand the intricate workings of a manual transmission? Of pressing and depressing the clutch pedal in tandem with operating that stick in between the seats in such a way as to keep the car going without a hitch? Nowadays, most people learn to drive on automatic cars, but we think that it’s still vital to learn how to drive a manual and these are the 10 best cars to learn everything about the more ’analog’ way of driving.

Believe it or not, out of the sea of new cars that are available for you to purchase in 2019 in the United States, only 40 are offered with a manual transmission. This may sound unbelievable to some of you, especially if you’re older and you’re used to seeing manual cars everywhere. Granted, automatic cars have been around since the ’40s but, in the past three decades or so, they’ve really started to eat into the market share of the manuals and, now, barely anybody buys a manual car. In fact, as of 2016, less than 3% of cars Stateside sport a manual transmission and many high-end manufacturers (such as Audi) have stopped selling manual cars in the U.S. altogether.

Why is it useful to know how to operate three pedals and a stick, then? Because you never know when you may have to drive one and, well, would you rather be the guy (or gal) to shrug his or her shoulders acknowledging defeat or would you rather just get on with it? I thought so… And that’s just one of the many reasons

PostHeaderIcon Best Rental Cars for a Road Trip

Ford F-150

Summer is still a season away, but with spring now in full bloom, the days of thick layers and winter jackets are over. For some people, the cool breeze of spring still invites a cup of hot chocolate over a fireplace. But for some people, spring kicks off the start of road trip season. Sure, summer is the peak of road trip madness, but the springtime weather invites plenty of great opportunities to take cars out of hibernation for a quick getaway or a long trip on the road.

Road trips are as much a part of American culture as hotdogs, beer, and baseball games. Taking a trip on the road is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have with your family and friends. It’s even better if you have the right vehicle accompanying you on your trip. Now, there’s not much we can do with the company you keep, but we can provide a good list of some of the best rental vehicles you can drive when you decide to leave the warm confines of home and embark on a quick — or long — getaway.

We’ve made this list as diverse as possible, covering different vehicle types and cutting across different segments. After all, there should be variety in all facets of life, right? That should include the cars you want to have with you on your road trips. Just remember, when you do decide to skip town, do so safely. So go ahead and rent any one of these vehicles. Always remember, though, to buckle up and enjoy the ride. After three months of winter, Lord knows you deserve it.

PostHeaderIcon Best Cars for a Family of 6

When the number of family members reaches six, the usual assortment of two-row vehicles doesn’t cut it anymore and you need a talented three-row family mover. But which one do you go for from the plethora of models available to cater to this need? If you want maximum efficiency while hauling yourself and five additional family members, then the obvious choice would be a cavernous people carrier (known as an MPV in Europe). This type of vehicle doesn’t have a design that gets your heart racing in any way, but it maximizes interior space and practicality for its footprint. The more popular choice these days is a high-riding crossover vehicle, or an SUV, as it provides similar levels of interior space and practicality, but with the raised ride height and seating arrangement, it gives drivers the feeling of safety and go-anywhere capability (even though a number of these vehicles aren’t really as capable as their chunky styling would have you believe). In recent years they’ve dethroned the traditional people carrier as the first choice for larger families to the point that there aren’t as many proper MPVs out there as there were before the “SUV revolution” of the late 1990s, early 2000s.
