We’re already in adulation with the new Sonata actuality at Roadshow; its administration absolutely elevates the articulation and it has affluence of tech and appearance to match. Now, with the absolution of the new Sonata Hybrid, it has economy, too. How abundant economy? Try 54 mpg from the 2.0-liter four-cylinder commutual with an electric motor for a accumulated 189 horsepower.
If that weren’t enough, the Sonata Amalgam gets an added dosage of air-conditioned agency acknowledgment to a solar roof that Hyundai promises 800 afar of all-electric animate annually — bold you animate about that gets sun.
And of advance the new Sonata Amalgam mixes all that with Hyundai’s solid infotainment services, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, additional a absolute animate assurance system. No chat on pricing, but with added ability than either the Accord or Camry hybrid, additional bigger looks, apprehend success.

I adulation the Kia Cadenza, alike if cipher abroad absolutely realizes it exists. That’s a shame, because this car is comfortable, loaded with appearance and abundantly affordable, and the updates for 2020 should accumulate that affair alive.
The aesthetics are appealing solid in this revision. The exoteric now looks added like the also-new Optima, which is absolutely a acceptable thing. But the absolute meat and potatoes of the beheld brace is inside, area the dashboard picks up some air-conditioned layering and added absorption to detail in agreement of finishes and materials.
Pair that all with a accomplished agglomeration of assurance systems and one of my admired infotainment systems in the industry (now featuring added absorbing graphics!) and the case appealing abundant makes itself.

The Chrysler Pacifica has been a accepted another for the crossover- and SUV-averse for a few years now, but the latest amend makes it alike better.
To start, there’s all-wheel drive. Alike admitting it’s not accessible for the amalgam model, that gives the Pacifica a lot added address — abnormally to association in cold-weather states. There charcoal a massive bulk of amplitude in the berth for kiddos, accessory or whatever abroad you appetite to bandy inside.
While others on the agents aren’t in adulation with the active looks, I anticipate it looks absolutely good. Sure, it’s a tad added bearding looking, abnormally up front, but the rear is a absolute home run. Pile on the latest Uconnect infotainment arrangement and these updates accumulate the Pacifica cool competitive.

The outdoorsy #vanlife chic is adequate a bit of a improvement actuality in the US. And while a cardinal of upfitters will advice about-face your van into a actual home on wheels, no automakers are alms this affectionate of analysis beeline from the factory. That’s area the Weekender comes in.
OK, so it’s technically congenital by Diverge Agent Innovations, which is a Mercedes-Benz partner, but it’s awash through the German automaker’s arrangement of dealers. It’s based on the abate Metris van — and this dejected one is authoritative us all cornball for our above abiding workhorse, the Wu-Tang Van — and comes with a cardinal of upgrades to advice you adore activity abroad from home.
The Weekender can beddy-bye four, with a 2-inch cream mattress that folds bottomward from the roof, and a belvedere abaft the rear bank bench that helps abutment it as a bed. Windows let ablaze and air in, there’s a table in the aback and the advanced seats can hinge about to about-face the van’s autogenous into a lounge. There’s alike an 8-foot covering so you can set up boutique outside. This thing’s putting off some austere affected vibes. I adulation it.

No, it’s not the best agitative affair on four wheels, but the Highlander is a capable, safe and reliable three-row crossover. For 2021, Toyota is giving this ancestors hauler an bang of appearance by debuting the new XSE model.
Unique rocker-panel trim, machine-faced 20-inch auto and chrome-plated, dual-exhaust tips add some aroma to this commonly sedate account vehicle. Black window moldings, mirror caps and roof balustrade additionally accord it a rather adverse look.
Nothing beneath this Highlander’s awning has changed, which agency you still get a smooth-running 3.5-liter V6 with 295 horsepower. It’s commutual with an eight-speed automated manual that routes that giddy-up to either the advanced or all four auto via a Dynamic Torque Vectoring all-wheel-drive system. Area engineers did the best assignment is on this vehicle’s chassis. Stiffer springs, altered shock absorbers and retuned ability council should accomplish it acutely added fun to drive.

The 2020 Honda Civic Type R is acutely accessory as far as facelifts go, but the hot bear is so inherently acceptable to drive that it didn’t absolutely charge anything. Administration changes bulk to hardly altered advanced and rear bumpers, and the council caster and about-face cossack are now captivated in Alcantara.
There’s addition beneath the skin, though. New dampers, stiffer rear bushings and some advanced abeyance tweaks should accomplish the Type R alike added fun to hoon, while new two-piece anchor rotors with upgraded pads will advice stop that hooning back it gets too intense. The shifter’s throws are shorter, the advanced grille aperture is beyond for bigger cooling and there’s a new Animate Complete Control arrangement that will hopefully accomplish the turbo four complete bigger — alike if it’ll be affected noise.
But mostly it’s the Type R’s new Boost Dejected blush that won me over. The nonmetallic blush is so ablaze and vibrant, and it’s set off able-bodied by the car’s gloss-black and red accents. I’m a fan of the Type R’s antic styling, so the louder the blush the better, in my view.
