Review: 2019 Fiat 500x Trekking Plus

In the late 1950s, Fiat introduced a car known as the Cinquecento, which is only one of the coolest car names ever.

Eventually the Cinquecento came to be known as the 500 — which is nowhere near as cool. By the mid-70s the car was discontinued, and that could’ve been the end of it.

But in 2007, what would’ve been the car’s 50th anniversary, they brought it back. Granted, it was much different, but for people who love tiny Italian cars, it was perfect.

Fast-forward to the 500x, a subcompact SUV, with emphasis on the sub, which debuted in 2016.

I didn’t know what to expect before the 500x showed up at my house, but the little red car pleasantly surprised me. Hey, there’s only so much you can do to jazz up a small SUV, but at least it looks interesting.Continue Reading

Review: 2020 Range Rover Evoque

About ten years ago the folks at Range Rover decided to tweak one of their concept cars and see if it could work as a smaller SUV in the luxury segment.

It launched in 2011 and, for the most part, has sold pretty well for its parent company, Tata.

The idea is that you’d get a nice variety of the features you love about its larger Range Rover brethren, while simultaneously downsizing. One thing the Rover people insisted on was maintaining the brand’s reputation for solid off-road performance, and on that score they succeeded.

It just becomes a question of how often you’ll be cutting across streams and over boulders, versus driving in the city. Because while it may be a solid citizen in the hills, it’s not perfect going from one red light to the next.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 BMW M850i xDrive Convertible

First things first. Other than being absolutely dazzled by the low, sleek, but fierce exterior of theM850i, something crazy happened the moment I slipped behind the wheel.

I was mesmerized, for the first time in my 20-plus years of reviewing cars, by a gear shifter.

Yes, the shifter.

In this case, I immediately said to my wife, “Hey, it’s a dilithium crystal from Star Trek.”

You have to see the crystal beauty to believe it.

But let’s wait a moment before we get inside. What exactly is this car all about?Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

I need to understand this weird disconnect between minivan reputations and how we actually feel when we drive them. Something doesn’t line up.

If that confuses you, it probably means you haven’t driven one. So, as Inigo Montoya said in The Princess Bride, lemme sum up.

For years minivans have been the vehicles we love to make fun of. The whole ‘soccer mom’ label — which was never intended to represent cool or fashionable in any way — was automatically attached to the image of a mother carting around a brood of children in a minivan.

So we poked fun. We were soooo superior in our sedans and SUVs, right?

And then something strange happened. We drove a minivan, either as a rental car, maybe because a friend owned one, or, in my case, to review.

And we liked them. We liked them a lot.Continue Reading

Review: 2018 Audi S5 Sportback

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are triggered by names. If they have any perceived negatives, we often find sneaky aways around using them. That means coming up with catchy names that camouflage the original word.

Here’s what I’m getting at: Audi must’ve realized that Americans have a bit of a negative bias around the word “hatchback,” so they pivoted.

When they finally decided to ship the S5 to America with a hatchback — one that had been around for a while overseas — they got clever. It was no longer called a hatchback.

It’s a Sportback. Ah, that’s much better!

But let’s be real: With this car, they could deliver it with Mickey Mouse ears sticking off the back and it would still be a badass. This car is a winner.

One of our co-workers at the radio station has had an S5 for a couple of years, so I was anxious to take this ’18 version out for a week. Here’s what I came away with.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 BMW X4 M40i

Relationship experts like to say it’s all about compromise — while other, more snarky folks point out that compromise simply means both sides are unhappy.

So I feel for the design crew at BMW when they sat down to pencil the rough plans for the second generation of the X4. The original models debuted in 2014, and it was time to spritz things up.

But if you’re designing an SUV, you have to remember that the S stands for Sport. That, by its name, leads us to expect something sporty and fun.

Ah, then you remember that the UV imparts an expectation of utility. Marrying a sporty vehicle with a utilitarian product doesn’t always create a winner.

For the most part, BMW accomplished their goal. Especially since this 2nd generation fixed a couple of areas that required attention.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Range Rover Sport SVR

Try as I might, I couldn’t stop my brain from defaulting to one particular thought during the week I drove this SUV:

It’s a luxury vehicle built to perform near the top of the class in off-road conditions, to the point that it even has a device that measures the depth of the water you’re frolicking through.

And it costs (with options) more than $130,000.

I was nervous and overly cautious just pulling through the parking lot of the grocery store; I couldn’t imagine taking a vehicle that costs the same as a small condo and grinding it over rocks and tree stumps.

I mean, a Range Rover was even once put on display at the Louvre (seriously), and now I’m going to plow through that swamp up ahead?

But here’s the thing. Even with that pedigree of off-road excitement, you can’t deny that the average buyer is very happy tooling up to the valet at 5-star restaurants.

Which is funny, since one of the chief engineers responsible for introducing the Range Rover, Spen King, once said the vehicle was “never intended as a status symbol.”

Dang, sorry Spen. That genie is long out of the bottle.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Mazda 3 Hatchback AWD

Full disclaimer up front: On our morning radio show, one of our sponsors is a Mazda dealership in the Denver/Boulder area. They have nothing to do with this review, nor did I get the car from them.

However, it was through them that I heard about the Mazda 3 picking up all-wheel drive for the first time. So when I found one parked in my driveway, mine to mess with for a week, I was curious how this newly-designed 3 would perform.

My basic review is that I truly enjoyed this car, with only two minor exceptions — and one of those has a work-around. The other is simply another result of the nanny state we’re forced to live with.

For 2019 the Mazda 3 has been fully redesigned, the 4th generation of this model. If you’re only familiar with the older versions, trust me, in many ways this is a big leap forward.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Lexus IS350 AWD

For years Lexus has built its brand on sophistication, luxury, and comfort, and that’s a pretty nice platform.

So while they might have the chops to insist on playing in the sports sedan segment, no matter what kind of oomph they install under the hood they’ll always remain true to their roots.

The IS350 wants to be a bad boy, but it just can’t quite shed its pretty boy heritage. Is that a bad thing?

You’d have to decide. I spent a week in the IS350 and felt like the two sides grappled with each other. Even the name, IS, can’t run from its origin, which is Intelligent Sport.

You’ll never hear Mustang or Corvette try to wear an Intelligent label. They just want to crush you.

None of this is meant in a derogatory way — for Lexus, Ford, nor Chevy. They all have their strengths, and that includes the IS.Continue Reading

Review: 2019 Toyota RAV4 Adventure

It was January of 1996, and consumers who had longed for an SUV that didn’t take up two parking spaces finally were granted their wish.

Toyota unveiled the first compact crossover SUV. They made sure to play off the intended use of the vehicle by naming it the “Recreational Activity Vehicle: 4-Wheel-Drive.”

When you crunch that mouthful down to an acronym, you wind up with the RAV4.

And for the past 20-plus years, Toyota has satisfied the segment of the population looking for a smaller, nimble crossover that’s a little easier on the bank account.

Granted, over the years the price has swelled, but it’s still reasonable. And while there are shortcomings, the RAV4 continues to satisfy the market it targeted in the first place.Continue Reading
