Vietnamese automaker VinFast has unveiled two more new electric SUVs it plans to bring to the U.S. market by early 2023. The VF 6 and VF 7 are smaller than VinFast’s first two offerings – the 2-row, midsize VF 8  and 3-row VF 9. You may not have realized Vietnamese automaker VinFast had introduced any electric  SUVs on the U.S. market. So, an introduction is probably in order. What Is VinFast? Founded in 2017, VinFast is the first Vietnamese car brand to market cars outside that country’s borders. It’s a subsidiary of VinGroup, Vietnam’s largest conglomerate, which does business i ..read more

As you plan your Black Friday and Cyber Monday, remember to set aside $375,000 for the present you’re buying yourself as a reward for shopping frugally. Your new Ferrari SUV will run about that much. To be clear, we don’t know U.S. pricing for certain yet. This price comes courtesy of the U.K.’s AutoCar, which says the 2023 Ferrari Purosangue will start at £313,120 – the equivalent of $376,525 at today’s wildly fluctuating exchange rate. You might want to give yourself $50K of wiggle room to account for unstable global politics between now and whenever Maranello gets around to announcing the ..read more

Lamborghini has issued a recall alert for — oh, it might be easier to just call the nine people this affects. Still, we aim to be thorough. So, let’s go through with it. Lamborghini has issued a recall alert for all nine examples of the 2022 Lamborghini Countach it sold in the United States. In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the company explains, “the rear bonnet glass panels could fully detach from the vehicle, creating a road hazard and increasing the safety-risk of a crash for following traffic.” A supplier is at fault, the company insists ..read more

The 2023 Honda Pilot is all-new from the wheels up, with more rugged looks and more rugged options, including an off-road-focused TrailSport model. Pricing will start at $39,150 — about a $1,000 premium over the 2022 model. The 2023 Honda Pilot is set to go on sale Dec. 12. The Pilot has always been a well-rounded family hauler. For 2023, it keeps that jack-of-all-trades character. A trick second row that can serve as a pair of captain’s chairs for two or a bench for three (the center insert hides in the cargo floor when not in use) may be our favorite feature. That’s available only on Tourin ..read more

Mazda Outlines Plans To Go Electric; Sneaks in Sports Car Teaser

5d ago
While many automakers have scattershot personalities, Mazda knows what it is. The company makes good-looking cars and SUVs with outstanding handling characteristics that aren’t luxury cars but wouldn’t embarrass themselves at a luxury car mixer. Mazda doesn’t try to be everything to everyone. It tries to be one thing and get good at it. So perhaps it’s not surprising that Mazda is among the last of the major automakers to announce its plans to go electric, and its plans are cautious. Up to 40% Electric by 2030 Mazda expects 25% to 40% of its global sales to be electric cars by 2030, the comp ..read more

2023 Kia Forte vs. 2023 Subaru Impreza
Kelley Blue Book

Compact sedans offer a striking balance of value and capability, and the best of them are probably more luxurious and refined than they were the last time you went car shopping. The Kia Forte is one of the most stylish and makes a strong financial case for itself with a fantastic warranty. The Subaru Impreza offers standard all-wheel drive (AWD), making it a solid choice where snow is often in the forecast. This comparison should help you decide which one is right for you. 2023 Kia Forte Kia has made a name for itself with chic styling, fair prices, and a warranty that means few surprises in ..read more

Mercedes-Benz EQG: Electric G-Class Will Differ from Other MB EVs
Kelley Blue Book
by Sean Tucker
6d ago
  Most of the auto industry has now settled on a fairly predictable formula for building electric cars. That includes Mercedes-Benz, which has a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) on the way that shares most traits and many parts. The company plans to go all-electric in most markets by 2030. To get there, it’s building electric equivalents to many of its gas-powered cars, which share a large number of components and a common design platform. But off-roaders are a different engineering challenge — Mercedes has just one legendary off-road vehicle, the G-Class. The storied German automaker h ..read more

Report: Fiat 500X Will Be Canceled as 500e Arrives
Kelley Blue Book
by Sean Tucker
6d ago
Fiat dealers seem to have it rough compared to most. But that presents an opportunity for car shoppers – if you want what they have to sell, they’ll often sell it at a discount. Fiat dealerships in America have just one model to sell – the 500X subcompact SUV. Our test driver found that its 177-horsepower turbocharged engine “delivers energetic acceleration and still returns decent fuel economy considering the standard all-wheel drive.” The ride is otherwise “adequate but not particularly impressive.” The 500X’s most impressive feature may be the deal you can negotiate on one. Fiat dealers s ..read more

2023 Acura TLX Gains Complimentary Maintenance, Starts Under $40K
Kelley Blue Book

It’s strange to call a car built by one of the best-known automakers a “secret,” but the Acura TLX is somehow one of the auto industry’s best-kept secrets. Better-known luxury cars like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5 Series outsell it. Yet the TLX holds its own with them. It currently sits fourth in our list of the Best Luxury Midsize Cars. It often beats them on price, too. Acura last redesigned the TLX for the 2021 model year, so Honda’s luxury division hasn’t found much to update for 2023. Most of what Acura has improved for 2023 relates to the ownership experience, not the car i ..read more

“Nice car. What kind of graphics card does it run?” It’s a strange question now. In a few years, it may not be. Sony and Honda will work together to bring out a new lineup of electric cars that may be gaming machines on wheels. Details on Partnership Emerging The two companies earlier this year announced plans to work together on a stable of electric vehicles. They launched a joint venture, Sony Honda Mobility (they’re pumping all their creativity into the cars, we hope) this summer.
