Looking more like a baby Maxima, Nissan’s bread-and-butter midsize sedan has recaptured its mojo to once again become an alluring choice for those still not enamored with the pivot towards crossover SUVs. Is the Altima a better car than the Accord? No. The Camry? Very close. Either way, they’re all solid selections and your decision will likely come down to intangibles and what you prioritize in a car. MSRP of my tester is $38,840. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-nissan-altima/
2019 Lincoln Nautilus Black Label Review By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.

Widebody fever is spreading at Dodge and will soon infect 2 new Charger models; Scat Pack and SRT Hellcat. Closely following the formula already established by its 2-door counterpart, the Challenger, the new 2020 Charger Widebody models fatten up their tires, broaden their fender flares, clamp down on bigger brakes and ride atop a specially tuned adaptive damping suspension to deliver a car that’s faster and handles better than ever before.
Many still don’t know the Genesis brand despite the fact that they’ve been selling 2 different nameplates for a couple of years now – both top notch luxury sedans, one of which comes in a delectable Sport trim. But this car is the one designed for you drivers out there – it’s their sportiest and most affordable – the all-new G70.
The Genesis brand launched late in 2016 and it’s still learning to fly, having left the Hyundai nest for its own retail space but in limited numbers. The nearest dealership to me is over 45 miles away. And in an SUV world they don’t offer a single one. In recent years, luxury automakers measured their coolness by their compact sports sedans. That’s no longer the case but having a car that starts at under $40,000 is important and the G70 could be the car that gets the metal moving. Why? Because it’s rear-wheel drive, still offers a stick and most of all, has an exclusive allure that has captured the attention of car enthusiasts.
2019 Nissan LEAF e+ First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes. The new 2019 Nissan LEAF e+ has a 62 kWh battery pack and an EPA-estimated range of up to 226 miles. Sales in the U.S. are expected to begin in spring 2019. While the regular LEAF will take you 150 miles on a full charge, this one tacks on another 75 miles thanks to a battery with 55% more capacity and a motor delivering 45% more power. That translates into an increased 250 pound-feet of instantaneous torque adding more passing prowess at highway speeds while raising the top speed.
