Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. While the 2018 Range Rover Velar S did not make me feel like the King of New York City, as I had hoped, I did feel like at least maybe the Duke of my neighborhood. You know, still getting plenty of attention, but not too much, while having all of the benefits of being born into a world of no real responsibility. It was a nice feeling while it lasted. (Full Disclosure: After seeing them all over New York City and checking our previous Jalopnik Reviews, I reached out to Land Rover to see if I could test a 2018 Velar for a week. A P380 S showed up later with a full tank of gas.) Despite being one of the less-adventurous models in the Land Rover and Ranger Rover lineup, the Velar is still cool in its own right. It’s more of a styling exercise that expands the brand’s appeal to people who just want something luxurious with a nice badge to roll up to the party in. But the Velar has come a long way to prove it … [Read more...] about The 2018 Range Rover Velar Rolls Like Royalty and Attracts as Much Attention

Full Car Details More Reviews The preponderance of SUV sales has lead some to proclaim the end of the passenger car, but it's vehicles like the 2018 Mazda 6 that reveal just how far away we are from every brand on the market suddenly transitioning to a truck-only line-up. Indeed, at Mazda it would seem that the crossover craze has had the reverse effect, providing turbocharged fuel for the refreshed Mazda 6's competitive fire and, in the process, making the lithe 4-door sedan more competitive – and more interesting – than it's ever been before. For years the Mazda 6 has been lauded as one of the best family cars no one seems to know about, an athletic outlier in a segment where the term 'communication' is typically reserved solely for describing the functionality of the infotainment system, not the interplay between driver, road, and suspension. Couple this with pleasingly svelte styling and budget-friendly pricing (even the new 2018 6 starts at an … [Read more...] about First Drive: The updated 2018 Mazda 6 goes turbo, loses its inhibitions
Two years ago this month, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles essentially threw in the towel on the "automobiles" part of its name. Canceling the compact Dodge Dart and the mid-size Chrysler 200 sedans, the company doubled down on the pickup trucks and utility vehicles that had long been its profit centers. Now that decision has become a trend, spurred on by changing global consumer tastes and higher fuel economy for all vehicles. DON'T MISS: Chrysler throws in towel on sedans: 200, Dart to die for SUVs, trucks (Apr 2016) Rumors that the Ford Fiesta subcompact would be withdrawn from the U.S. market had quietly circulated for months in Detroit automotive circles. Now it appears that not only the small Fiesta but Ford's largest sedan model, the Taurus, will vanish from the lineup—leaving only the mid-size Fusion and the compact Focus. The new global Focus model broke cover this week, but it will no longer be built in the U.S. Instead, North American buyers will get Focus hatchbacks and … [Read more...] about More sedan, smaller, entry models bite the dust in Detroit
