Filed under:
,,


Nissan is updating the Rogue Sport line for 2018.5. It’s not a major refresh, but it does make a number of safety features standard on all models including the base-level S. The standard features include automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic assist. The top-level SL trim also gains another standard convenience feature in the form of adaptive cruise control. This feature will also be available on the mid-level SV in the SV Technology Package.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


On this week’s Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Associate Editor Joel Stocksdale. We talk about driving the 2018 Ford Ecosport and Hyundai Accent. Joel tells us why he loves the naturally aspirated engine in our long-term Honda Ridgeline. We discuss Tesla’s profitability claims, Johan de Nysschen leaving Cadillac and a possible date change for the Detroit Auto Show. As usual, we’ll also spend a listener’s money on a car.

2020 Toyota Corolla sedan spied with less camo

Filed under:
,,,


We’ve already seen the Toyota Corolla hatchback and you’ll be able to read about what it’s like to drive April 30, but we still have yet to hear much about the sedan. That’s a bit surprising, since the Corolla is Toyota’s compact bread and butter, making up nearly 94 percent of the Corolla’s almost 330,000 sales in 2017. We may not have much longer to wait, though, since the Corolla prototype in the spy shots above look pretty close to production. Notably, the heavy black plastic of the last pro

Economy-car buyers increasingly get the best deal on technology

Filed under:
,,,,,,,,,,


One of the great things about technology is – with the exception of Apple products – consumers get more for their money every year. For example, the first 1GB USB drive I bought in 2005 cost me $30. Today you can get 10 for that price, delivered to your door thanks to Amazon. The same goes for car tech.

Sunday Drive: One of these things is not like the others

One of these things is not like the others. And we don’t mean that one is a Chevy while the rest are all from Ford. No, what we’re looking at here are a bunch of performance cars, with one lone economy car thrown in for good measure.

2019 VW Jetta vs. best-selling compact cars: How they compare on paper

Filed under:
,,,


As the brand’s best-selling car, the 2019 Volkswagen Jetta needs to be good to maintain its sales, if not grow them. We just drove it, and found the latest Jetta to be stylish, frugal, and decently priced, if not exciting. But we also wanted to see how it compares on paper to other cars in the segment. So we’ve assembled the specifications from the four best-selling compacts on the market in order of their sales starting with the best-selling Honda Civic, followed by the Toyota Corolla, Nissan S

2019 Volkswagen Jetta First Drive Review | More style, not much more excitement

Filed under:
,,,,


The 2019 Jetta is a car Volkswagen really needs to get right. Last year, it was VW’s best-selling model in America by a wide margin. And although the new Tiguan and Atlas have been propelled ahead so far this year by America’s crossover obsession, the Jetta is still VW’s best-selling car, beating the Passat and the Golf. Put simply, the new Jetta has got to be good.

2018 Hyundai Kona First Drive Review | Serving style, price, and utility, in that order

Filed under:
,,,,


Utility is an interesting word. As it applies to cars and trucks, it’s a nebulous term – but this vague concept is the main reason for buying one rather than a coupe or sedan. Both truck-based SUVs and car-based CUVs claim a modicum of it. And so-called utility vehicles come in all shapes and sizes.
