2020 Toyota GR Supra 3.0 Premium Review By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
What’d you do if you’re a car company that wants to resurrect a dormant sports car nameplate but you no longer build fast cars? One option is to outsource the job to an expert. This is the all-new, BMW-infused 2020 Supra.
I mean this car looks like it just jumped off of a teenager’s sketch pad…and I mean that as a compliment. Its slick, almost cartoonish appearance is the sports car we imagined designing when we were kids and the hat tip to Supras of the past found in the deatils is very cool. But after that, Toyota’s involvement here is murky at best. And you know what? The Supra is so good I don’t really care. For about $56,000 Toyota is selling a fully stocked 2-seater that’ll leave you longing for another backroad blast.
2020 Land Rover Discovery HSE Review By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
Land Rover’s lineup of SUVs offers a little something for everyone; from track to trail and family life in between. But this one here is my favorite because it’s the most well-rounded. This is the full-size, 3-row Discovery. In a sea of SUVs that are starting to feel very similar the Discovery really stands out both for its combination of off-road prowess, styling and the features that it offers
MSRP as-tested: $75,835
Now that they’re both finally here, will you choose the Hyundai Palisade or its equally fresh corporate cousin the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride? The Telluride is the largest Kia ever with seating for up to 8. It’s off to a stellar sales start and is deserving of your attention.
It’s Super Bowl week in Miami so a GMC just wasn’t going to cut it this time around. And is there a more fitting accessory for this vivacious party scene than 007’s whip? I think not. Excluding their limited production hypercars, this is the most expensive, most powerful, fastest Aston Martin the British automaker currently sells. Passing the torch as Aston’s finest grand touring car from the Vanquish S, the DBS nameplate was revived for this all-new model in 2018 along with the super lightweight moniker. And then last year the convertible Volante was added. This is the most expensive, most powerful, fastest Aston Martin the British automaker currently sells. Priced from over $330,000 and offered with numerous customization options, this DBS is ultra-exclusive. I do like how you can fire ‘er up in a quieter mode by holding down the start button otherwise the neighbors would hate you. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-aston-martin-dbs-superleggera-volante/
Let’s talk about Dodge for a minute. Their 5 vehicle lineup’s newest model is the Charger, last redesigned in…wait for it…2011! Now, that’s an insane amount of time to go between complete redesigns but Dodge could give a lesson to the rest of the industry as to how to pull off this magic trick with incredible results. Case in point the Durango; itself last redesigned for the 2011 model year yet amazingly fresh. And….I tell you what; there aren’t a lot of FCA products I’m clamoring over right now but the Durango SRT has looked father time in the face and said catch me if you can. 2019 Dodge Durango SRT 392 https://testdrivenow.com/2019-dodge-durango-srt/
