2023 Polestar 2 Specs, Pricing, and Complete Buyer’s Guide
The Polestar 2 has been with us for quite a while now, and over the years, the Swedish EV brand has been giving it incremental updates. For 2023, however, the updates are much more pronounced, especially under the skin, though it’s not significant enough to be considered a mid-cycle facelift. Due to these updates, the Polestar 2 has been given a price increase across the range. The Polestar 2 Single Motor now starts at $48,400 (+$2,500), while the Dual Motor version now starts at $51,900 (+$700). These prices do not yet consider the $7,500 federal tax credit and $1,400 destination fee.
Why the Lotus Eletre Is Uniquely Innovative
The Lotus Eletre is probably the most un-Lotus ever, with a massive curb weight, lots of digital screens, and SUV body style. It does, however, offer the performance you’d expect from a Lotus, but there are some interesting quirks to it. From its aerodynamic features to some interesting design queues, and for better or worse, this is the Lotus Eletre.
Battle Of Budget Family Sedans: Nissan Altima vs Mazda 3
While it is fun to see sports cars and supercars drag race, there’s something about watching family sedans doing things that they aren’t meant to. They’re perhaps even more exciting because these are the cars we see on the roads a lot more frequently. ‘Sam CarLegion’ generally stages races between mass-market cars, and this time, he’s brought two family sedans with Japanese routes to face each other – the Nissan Altima and the Mazda 3. Which car do you think will win?
It’s Imperative That Ford Launches a Ranger EV ASAP
At this point, it would be a miracle if we see the Tesla Cybertruck this decade, the GMC Hummer is too expensive, GM can’t sell EVs to save its life, yet the Ford F-150 Lightning is already sold out. What does that tell you? The American public wants electric trucks, but they don’t want to pay a fortune for them and, while the Cybertruck is cool, it’s gimmicky and won’t appeal to the wide range of people that actually buy trucks. A Ford Ranger EV, however, would be more affordable than all of the aforementioned trucks, it would be usable in day-to-day life, and it would just make sense. As it turns out, it might happen sooner than we all thought.
Lotus Will Aim to Dethrone Porsche with the 600+ Horsepower Type 133 Electric Sedan
I never thought I’d see the day that Lotus has a sedan on the market, yet here we are in 2022, the company’s entire sports car brand is dead, and it’s launching into the future with an electric SUV. This is the result of Geely ownership, but that doesn’t mean that Lotus’ future will be tainted compared to its past. In fact, the Eletre only exists because it will make money and, ultimately, fund other more Lotus-like electric sports cars. The first of that range, however, won’t be a typical two-door coupe but instead an all-electric sedan. Known internally as the Lotus Type 133, it too will be built in China, but it will also have a look and personality all its own. Now, we’ve learned a little more about it and how it will compete in the market.
2023 Kia Telluride’s Butch And Blocky Makeover Elevates Its Appeal Even Further

Here it is folks, the 2023 Hyundai Palisade finally breaks cover at the New York International Auto Show and for a mid-cycle refresh, I have to say that Hyundai has gone the extra mile and may have even outdone themselves, with their flagship mid-size SUV.

Why the Lotus Eletre is a Necessary Evil and How it Will Shape the Brand’s Future
Lotus recently unveiled its very first electric crossover, the Eletre. Despite being a crossover, it actually holds true to some of the ideals that make Lotus the brand it is today. It’s capable of hitting 60 mph in 2.95 seconds, has a top speed of 161 mph, and it even has a decent range of around 600 km or 372 miles. During its reveal, though, Lotus intentionally avoided one subject, and that was weight. It’s not surprising as the Eletre is now the heaviest vehicle in Lotus history, with Lotus engineers “aiming for” a curb weight of 2,000 kg or 4,409 pounds. This doesn’t not factor into the ideals that make a Lotus a Lotus, though, and neither does the body style, so what gives? Well, I’m here to tell you that the Lotus Eletre is quite literally necessary for the brand’s survival.

BMW X5 M and X6 to Change Dramatically with the Upcoming Facelift
It has been almost three years since rumors about a new BMW engine started to surface. It was said to be a new V-8, that we now believe is called the S68 and will carry on the legacy of the twin-turbo, hot-V layout. This engine, which could end up being the very last of its kind due to extreme efforts toward electrification, will first launch in the production version of the BMW XM, but has also been expected to trickle down to other models. A new report from Bimmerpost Forums claim it could even land in the X5 M and X6 M
2023 Maserati Grecale Folgore
After what seemed like the longest wait, the Maserati Grecale is finally here, and I couldn’t be more excited. Now, this is an exciting new model for the Modena-based automaker. Why?
Because Maserati’s new Grecale isn’t just another D-segment competitor. The SUV also debuts the Trident brand’s first-ever all-electric vehicle, the 2024 Maserati Grecale Folgore. The Folgore (which translates to ‘lightning’ in Italian) nameplate refers to all-electric models from the Trident brand, with the compete model roll-out by 2025.

2022 Honda Accord Hybrid
Practical mid-size sedans are pretty popular in the country, and the Accord has been here for generations, retaining what a good all-rounder sedan can do better than an average compact crossover. Now that its latest iteration stands four years from its introduction, Honda is trying to improve its budget sedan by offering a bit more each year so that you won’t complain about its aging design. The Accord Hybrid is an impressive car in its segment, and it goes up against the likes of the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Let us remind you that neither of the two competitors of the Accord Hybrid are weak. But, more on that later. The Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter engine which is mated to dual self-charging electric motors, and when combined, the power output is 212 horsepower. It is a powerful alternative, of course, but it is efficient too. So, you might be thinking the Accord Hybrid is done for the day, right? Absolutely not. It offers great ride quality, has loads of driver assistance features by default, a spacious cabin, and a lot more, for the asking price of $27,320. So, should you buy the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid? It is a yes from us, but read the review for a more vivid picture of this attractive budget hybrid sedan.

2022 Renault Austral
Renault unveils its new hybrid SUV, the Austral, which is based on the new third-generation CMF-CD platform. It portrays Renault’s “Nouvelle Vague” which means “New Wave” in the global C-segment SUV markets. If you are familiar with the Megane E-TECH Electric and the Arkana, you will find the Austral to follow similar paths, which includes Renault’s new design language and feature-proof cabin. We think that this compact hybrid/electric SUV is targeting the new Kia Sportage in a lot of ways, bringing in updated tech and multiple powertrain options to soothe your needs. Let’s dive in for a closer look into Renault’s newest addition to its Global (excluding the U.S.) lineup.
2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD - Driven
As Hyundai’s best-selling model, and its resident competitor for the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Mazda CX-5, it’s no surprise that the fourth-gen model takes style, technology, and personal performance to an all-new level. As an all-new model for the 2022 model year, the Tucson brings an attractive, bold look, an impressive and comfortable interior, and a lot of standard technology to the table. The launch model includes a range of fuel-efficient powertrains, including the 187-horsepower inline-four from the Hyundai Sonata or a new 226-horsepower hybrid system that pairs a turbocharged 1.6-liter with an electric motor. While the exterior looks bold and commanding, the interior is more relaxing and well-rounded. When you bring it all together, the new Tucson is certainly heading to the top of the segment, and we’re more than happy to confirm that after spending plenty of time behind the wheel.

This is the new Mazda CX-60. While it might look like just another crossover, it is a significant model for the Japanese brand. It is the first-ever Mazda to feature plug-in hybrid technology and the combined output will make it the most powerful Mazda road car ever.
The 2023 Volkswagen Passat Wagon Was Recently Spotted Testing Without Its Brother In Arms
You should know by now that Volkswagen not only killed the Passat in the States in an attempt to focus on SUV and electric cars, but also killed the Passat sedan altogether all across the globe. The new-generation Passat will only be offered as a station wagon. A few prototypes were already caught testing during cold winter conditions, and now, our spy photographers caught a new prototype out for a testing session in Scandinavia.
