With last year’s turbocharged personality implant a success, the 2018 Kia Soul takes a year off from big change.

Honda CR-V Hybrid prototype goes green(er)  

Honda's popular CR-V is about to get a little greener, and we're not talking about its paint.

The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan is a popular van that trades perhaps more on its household name than its virtues. It’s a dated van that has been superseded by the far more modern Chrysler Pacifica, but the Dodge may be worth considering solely on the basis of its high-value pricing. We’re willing to look beyond the initial purchase price...
