PostHeaderIcon Cars that should be dead for 2019 but aren’t

Some cars become so popular that they end up being produced under license for decades. The most common examples include the Volkswagen Beetle and Microbus/Type 2, which remained in production until 2013 in Mexico and Brazil. Another example is the Caterham Seven, which still carries the legacy of the original Lotus Seven, launched in 1957.

But while the Seven was thoroughly updated and features modern underpinnings and technology, cars like the Beetle and Microbus remained rather spartan and eventually had to be axed due to safety and emissions regulations. But due to more relaxed rules in certain countries, some very old cars are still in production today. Here’s a list of vehicles that shouldn’t exist in 2019, but you can still buy them.

PostHeaderIcon Automotive Industry Predictions for 2019 – More of the Same or Drastic Change?

2018 has been a pretty wild year with all kinds of crazy things happening. We’ve seen Volkswagen fall into another scandal, Lamborghini launch an SUV, EVs take over the planet, and sedans all but die off with Ford, for example, killing off every car in its lineup outside of the Ford Mustang – just to make room for SUVs. So, with the end of the year upon us, we’ve put together our very own predictions for next year. To put it simply, we think it’s going to be an even crazier year than this one.

PostHeaderIcon The Best Cars to Roll With in the Middle of a New Year’s Snow Storm

Imagine this: you’re driving to your friend’s house on New Year’s Eve, and you get stuck on the way due to a snowstorm or a blocked road. You end up stuck for a few hours or until the next morning. You definitely won’t be cold if you have enough gasoline to keep the engine running, but things will become boring fast in an old vehicle without comfort and entertaining features.

Whether you’re alone or you have company, you need a few modern features to keep you busy until the storm passes or a rescue team comes to unblock the road. It’s obviously too cold outside, so you need to say inside. Hot drinks aren’t an option, but certain cars will keep you entertained or provide plenty of room to stretch out. Let’s find out which cars are the best to spend New Year’s in.

PostHeaderIcon Cars Discontinued in 2018

The end of the calendar year is usually the time when we look back upon the greatest vehicles unveiled over the last 12 months, while many outlets create rankings for the best cars in various segments. But we tend to forget that many cars also go out of production each year. In 2018, we saw quite a few important nameplates go into the history books, with some to follow suit in early 2019.

Ford and Chevrolet are the leaders here, with both companies discontinuing sedans and other cars in favor of crossovers. Lincoln also replaced two familiar models, while Cadillac is ditching an entire range. Alfa Romeo, Nissan, Volkswagen, and Toyota also join the list of automakers that are either replacing or killing nameplates in the United States. Let’s see what vehicles we won’t be able to buy in North America soon.

PostHeaderIcon 7 Best Used Compact SUVs from 2016

Compact SUVs are the way to go these days. They are neither bulky like ladder-on-frame SUVs nor nimble like soon-to-be-extinct sedans. Compact SUVs are targeted to people from all walks of life; a performance SUV for the young-blood, a spacious SUV for families, and so on. Even the price bracket is huge. In this list, we have listed the best compact SUVs from 2016 that you can purchase on the used market.

PostHeaderIcon Best Used Midsize SUV from 2016

Mid-size SUV is the most practical option for families these days. They have sedan-like handling with a lot more space, they are tough, can haul more than enough luggage for those long trips, and can also be taken on unfamiliar terrain with little risk. The only problem with them is that they are priced high. So, what do you do? You buy a two or three-year-old used SUV for around half the price than what it retails at new. SUVs are built to last; so you don’t have to worry about the longevity, and we have stressed enough on the benefits of pre-owned cars in previous articles. Here is a list of seven best SUVs from 2016 that you can buy.

PostHeaderIcon What Will Santa Drive for Christmas 2018?

We all know Santa uses a reindeer-powered sleigh to move around, but what if he’s also a gearhead? I mean, he’s been around long enough to witness the evolution of the automobile, I’m pretty sure he likes them and drives a few cars in his free time. But what would he drive for Christmas in 2018?

Choosing just one car is extremely difficult so I went with five. A vehicle for a different purpose. Truck and SUVs to haul goods, a sedan to relax in the back seat, a sports car for a bit of fun, and a vintage car simply because Santa seems to be a classy guy. Let’s see what Mr. Claus will drive this year for Christmas in the list below.

PostHeaderIcon The best vehicles for Christmas shopping

The winter holidays are all fun and joy once you’ve set up the Christmas tree and invited everyone over, but before you do that, you obviously need to buy everything on that shopping list. That includes presents, food, and everything else you need for the holidays, and they all need to fit in your trunk unless you want to make more than one trip.

You obviously need a pretty big trunk, so I went ahead and compiled a list of the best vehicles for Christmas shopping. Large SUVs are best recommended for the job, but you can also consider wagons and minivans. Yes, there aren’t many wagons to choose from in the U.S. nowadays, but if you’re not a fan of SUVs, there are few large sedans that offer decent trunk space. Let’s have a closer look at what you can use.

PostHeaderIcon The 7 Best New Cars of 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, we decided to take a look back at the best cars presented this year. There’s a little something on this list for everyone, including models like the Mercedes A-Class, Hyundai i30 N, and even the Hyundai Niro EV. But what is it that makes these cars (and the others we’ve chosen) the best new cars of 2018? You’ll have to keep reading to find out.

PostHeaderIcon Top 13 Subcompact SUVs Ranked from Best to Worst

If you are in the business of finding the best subcompact SUV, I am quite sure that you have at least peaked at the rear seats trying to figure out how much use you could get from them. Well, I’ve compiled a list of 13 subcompact SUVs, crossovers, or whatever you call them, and ranked them by the rear seat room. Sure, this is not the most important measurement to find out which one is the best subcompact SUV, but it is an important factor for sure.

Power, consumption, or the cargo room in the boot are as important. And yes, I included that too. So, without further ado, let’s see what 13 of the most important subcompact SUVs bring to the table in the U.S.

PostHeaderIcon 5 Pocket-Rockets That You Can Have In the U.S.

Here’s a short list of 5 pocket-rockets every U.S. buyer can have instead of that big, sluggish SUV. And yes, such cars are more popular over the pond in Europe, but there are also plenty of choices from we can choose from I the States as well. Sure, an SUV will carry the kids during that trip you’ve been planning, or the groceries from the supermarket to your home, but it doesn’t come close to the thrills you’ll get from a proper pocket-rocket. Here are five go-fast cars you can buy in the United States and have a bucketload of fun with.

PostHeaderIcon Top 6 2018 SUVS for The Holiday Season

If there’s one thing we know about Christmas, it’s that even if we think that we’re going to have time to rest and relax, the busy nature of the season will come back and force us off our beds and couches. Whether it’s a late night dash to the nearest Walmart or Target or a trip to the parent’s house an hour away, we’re going to need our SUVs this season more than we realize. On that end, you’re going to need an SUV that can excel during the holiday season. Need space for all your Christmas shopping? An SUV with a spacious cargo area would come in handy. How about those long distance trips? You’ll need an SUV that can a provide a smooth ride while returning great fuel economy. What about if you need to tow a Christmas gift like, say, a new jet ski? An SUV with a high towing capacity is the ride for the job. All these circumstances could play out this season, which is why we’re putting the spotlight on six SUVs that could come in handy this Christmas depending on what your needs are.

PostHeaderIcon 6 Coupe SUVs That Don’t Look Hunchbacked

Back in 2007, BMW revealed a high-riding vehicle that would end up changing the SUV market segment forever: the X6. It was presented as a sportier and more aggressive looking version of the practical X5 luxury family hauler. As it turns out, it was about as close to an instant hit if I’ve ever seen such a thing in recent times in the automotive industry, taking buyers by storm, and completely shifting their perspective on what an SUV or crossover can look like.

It threw the familiar two-box design straight out the window and in its place BMW designers imagined a dramatic, sloping rear end design reminiscent of what we might call a fastback design on a lower, non-SUV car. Not everybody liked it to begin with, and many people still find the shape a bit contrived (the author of this article included). I have to admit I wasn’t over the Moon ecstatic when BMW announced it was going to make an X4 (which is nearly identical to the X6, but slightly smaller).

Then, after allowing BMW to have the newly created coupe SUV niche all to itself since 2008, Mercedes launched its own model to go head to head with the X6. By that time, however, the X6 was already in its second generation, and The Three-Pointed Star didn’t really present an innovative looking vehicle, but rather its interpretation of the X6 style grafted onto its GLE (which up until that point was known as the M-Class). Then Mercedes added a smaller version of the GLE, dubbed GLC Coupe, to go head to head with the X4, completely copying what its Bavarian rival did.

However, while nowadays even Renault is preparing a model with a similar shape and the new Geely-owned manufacturer Lynk & Co has one in the works, there are manufacturers out there who have not gone down the same design path when creating their sporty, rakish, coupe-like SUVs. This article focuses on those models whose underlying idea is the same (create a sporty SUV with a coupe twist) but whose execution is different and more original.

PostHeaderIcon 10 New Cars That are Begging to be Modified

Out of all those new cars out there, which ones have more promise that is untapped by the manufacturer? These cars are already good, but at the same time, they could be significantly improved with sometimes minimal modifications. In other words, they have what it takes but just need to be honed that little bit more to achieve their full potential.

PostHeaderIcon The Best Full-Size Pickups Ranked from Last to First

The best full-sized pickups in the market are often those that give you the best of a lot of worlds. It’s not enough for a pickup to look good or boast a luxurious interior. It’s not even enough to have the most powerful engine. A good pickup has all of those things to go with impressive handling and driving qualities, as well as towing and hauling capabilities. Like the image the segment presents as do-it-all vehicles, a good pickup has to, quite literally, do it all. That said, not every pickup can do it as well as some of its contemporaries. There are those that excel in a few things but don’t much up as well in other respects. Then there are those that not only excel at one thing; they excel at everything. On that end, we’ve made a list of the best full-sized pickups in the market today, ranked from last to first.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Cars We Don’t Want To See On The Road Again

As many classic cars as the industry has, there are just as many lemons. Some of these lemons still exist today, but a lot have been parked to the annals of history. In this space, we’re going to take a look back at some of the most infamous automotive lemons that have entered our lives. They were bad back then, but imagine what they’d be like if they were still around today. We’re not praying for that day to come, hence our wish that we never see these cars again.

PostHeaderIcon 8 New Car Trends that Automakers Should be Ashamed Of

We live in an age when bad automotive trends are spreading like wildfire, with manufacturers inexplicably copying one another helping proliferate them, despite their obvious downsides. It’s as if originality is not as important anymore, and most automakers are just content to just reimagine what other companies are doing, if whatever it is that they are doing seems successful.
