Car Review: Last year for the high performance Cadillac ATS-V sedan

WASHINGTON — Small luxury sedans are a tough sell these days, and the Cadillac ATS sedan is no different. So this year will be the last year for this fun-to-drive car. The ATS has a special version called the ATS-V, a sports car with four doors. What sets apart the V series ATS is a twin turbo V6 with 464 hp, and it really makes this small sedan fly. It might not sound as good an Alfa V6 but you can get into some serious trouble if you’re not careful….

2019 Jeep Cherokee Cars.com photo by Christian Lantry Newcomers to our top five most-read reviews since last week include the 2018 Ford Expedition and the returning 2019 Jeep Cherokee — the latter of which Cars.com has just a bit of a history with. Four years ago, we bought a then-all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee as a second vehicle for our long-term test fleet, and like so many long-term relationships, we were better off when it ended and vowed to never subject ourselves to that again. And while Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder didn’t exactly have a change of heart,…

2018 Mazda6 GT wagon new car review

Turbo engine brings more performance. New model a lot quieter than old 6. Beautiful presented cabin. Boot not biggest in class. Rear seat room tight for three adults. New engine thirstier than non-turbo model. Evolution, not revolution appears to be the ethos at Mazda these days. And why not, as the Japanese brand is riding the crest of the wave – in Australia at least – with strong sales and an image that places it between mainstream rivals and the prestige elite. Enter the new Mazda6, which in theory is…

Car review of new BMW X3 XDrive 20D: On-track, but not offbeat

New BMW X3 XDrive 20D It’s love at first sight. The striking design language of the new BMW X3—featuring a bold front with a double kidney grille, adaptive LED headlights and fog-lamps, and the expressive rear that has LED tail-lights combined with a low-slung roof spoiler and exhaust tailpipes on both sides in chrome—attracts attention wherever it goes. The X3, in its third generation now, reflects a new, youthful BMW. What is the X3? It’s a premium midsize sports activity vehicle—BMW calls its SUV-shaped vehicles as SAV. It was first launched…

Regular Car Reviews Tries To Find Which Focus Is The Best Focus

Which Focus is best Focus? Sounds like a simple enough question if you consider only factory-standard models. The answer would have to be either the current RS version, or the latest-generation model, thanks to all of its clever safety and tech features. Of course, that’s not exactly what RegularCars wants to know here, since this video is basically a diss track aimed at people who modify their Focuses in order to make them either faster, faster-looking, or both. Granted, you’re probably going to laugh at least once or twice, especially due to the repetition. Just…

Car Seat Headrest: Twin Fantasy Review

To understand the new Car Seat Headrest release, you first have to understand Car Seat Headrest’s origin story. That story has been told many times before, so let’s keep it brief: In 2010, Virginia teenager Will Toledo started recording songs and posting them to Bandcamp under the name Car Seat Headrest. He posted six full-length albums in about 18 months, the last of which was called Twin Fantasy—a lo-fi concept record about the dizzying highs, terrifying lows and confusing in-betweens of a romantic relationship. Its themes highly relatable, Twin Fantasy attracted lots of…
