The concept of moving electric energy from a power source to a device without a wired connection is not new. Physicist Nikola Tesla developed the “Tesla Coil” more than a hundred years ago for that purpose. Practical applications, however, have been a long time coming.
Although somewhat late to the subcompact-crossover party, at least Hyundai showed up with a nice present: the 2018 Kona, introduced earlier this year.
Our first exposure to the Kona came recently in Detroit, perhaps one of the few major cities in this country with roads as bad as ours here in Chicago. That’s notable because our preview drives usually take place in areas with smoother pavement, making it tough to judge ride quality. Not a problem in this case.
Since its U.S. debut for 1990, the Lexus ES has been positioned at the luxury end of the premium-midsize segment. Today its front-drive layout is in the class minority, and it’s the only member that isn’t offered in all-wheel-drive form.

Hyundai unveiled a freshened version of its compact SUV at the 2018 New York Auto Show.

New powertrains, new names, new styling, and new tech features are all highlights of the redesigned 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV, which made its debut at the 2018 New York Auto Show.
This new fourth-generation version of Hyundai’s midsize SUV is a two-row, five- passenger model that is simply named Santa Fe. Gone is the Santa Fe Sport monicker, which previously denoted the five-passenger variant. The 2019 Santa Fe grows 2.6 inches longer in wheelbase and 2.8 inches longer in overall length than the outgoing 2018 Santa Fe Sport.
At the 2018 New York Auto Show, Toyota unveiled a redesigned version of one of the most important vehicles in its model lineup. The 2019 Toyota RAV4 gets a new platform, updated powertrains, a new top-line all-wheel-drive system, and new technology features.
