  • 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

    Volkswagen has finally decided to tackle the American CUV market with a new approach. The Touareg has been cancelled, the Tiguan has grown by leaps and bounds, there’s a big-new three row Atlas and soon we’ll have a third German crossover to fill out the bottom end.

  • 2017/2018 Toyota Highlander & Highlander Hybrid Review

    Toyota’s Highlander is on the smaller end of the three-row crossover segment, but that’s exactly what families seem to love about it.

Some of this has to do with the smaller number of Fiat dealers but I suspect that more has to do with shoppers wanting a compact go-anywhere CUV instead of an on-road corner

  • 2018 Volvo V90 & V90 Cross Country Review

With the driving dynamics of a sedan but a bigger cargo area on the back, an estate (as they call them across the pond) makes a great deal of practical sense. Unfortunately the allure of a higher seating position has left wagon sales in America at an
