Pavement, Shmavement – Jeep Compass/Volvo V90 Cross Country

September 27, 2018. Alan Rider

Like the Mach 5 in its day, crossovers have developed a legion of dedicated fans. But I predict the Jeep Compass will be sought-after for more than just its body style. Take the midrange Trailhawk model I drove. Simply put, it is the only affordable compact SUV I can think of that will take you…

Hot Hatchbacks – Toyota Corolla Hatchback/Honda Civic Hatchback

August 28, 2018. Alan Rider

Sexy: There’s a word you don’t generally apply to affordable cars. And yet, it’s an apt description of the Toyota Corolla Hatchback. Granted, it’s not bright-red Ferrari kind of alluring. Just the same, this all-new hatchback offers a lot more style than just about any other four-door compact you can name, starting with its distinctly…

Tough Trucks – Ford F-150 Raptor/Chevrolet Colorado ZR2

August 27, 2018. Alan Rider

The full-size Ford F-Series didn’t achieve its best-seller status by resting on its past successes. Which explains the existence of the high-performance Ford F-150 Raptor. The four-door crew cab Raptor I drove frankly looked like it could eat other pickups for breakfast. Unlike many special-edition models, however, this next-generation Raptor is more than just a…

Performance, Please! – Fiat 124 Spider/Kia Stinger

July 28, 2018. Alan Rider

If there’s a nicer place to be on a sunny afternoon than a winding two-lane road behind the wheel of the Fiat 124 Spider (with the top down, of course) we honestly can’t think of it. Yes, this two-seat roadster is every bit that agreeable. Built on the underpinnings of the highly regarded Mazda MX-5…

Making Tracks – Subaru Crosstrek/Volkswagen Golf Alltrack

June 28, 2018. Alan Rider

While crossovers are known for their practical side, the all-new Subaru Crosstrek may be the Swiss army knife of the segment. It doesn’t offer 64 separate implements, but the second generation of this compact SUV is a versatile enough tool for wherever life takes you. On the road, the Crosstrek offers a refined ride and…

American Dreams – Chrysler 300/Buick LaCrosse

June 28, 2018. Alan Rider

What’s in a name? When it comes to the Chrysler 300, about six decades of American motoring history. Not surprisingly, that original 1955 300 was a large automobile, albeit one with an unexpected performance edge. Much the same can be said about the current 10th-generation of this full-size sedan. I drove both the upscale 300C…
