Consumer Guide Fuel Economy Champions

At Consumer Guide®, we take pride in not simply reporting the fuel-economy number provided by a given test vehicle’s trip computer–and we don’t blindly accept the EPA’s numbers. Instead, we buy our own gas and do the math.

2018 Toyota C-HR

2018 Toyota C-HR

Consumer Guide First Spin At first blush, Toyota’s 2018 C-HR looks all the world like a rakish new entry in the compact-crossover segment, but it’s not. At least, not in the traditional sense.

However, that may depend on how one defines a “crossover.” Despite the fact that roughly 40-50 percent of small SUVs are purchased in front-wheel-drive form, Consumer Guide’s definition has traditionally included the mandate that it has to at least be offered with all-wheel drive, and the C-HR is not … at least, not yet.

New Car colors for 2017

2017 Chicago Auto ShowBored with beige? Sick of silver? Weary of white? Tired of tan? Chagrined by champagne? Troubled b… OK, sorry, we’ll stop. Though muted, conservative colors seem to dominate in the new-vehicle marketplace, most manufacturers offer at least a couple unusual hues in their factory-paint palettes. Auto shows are a great place to see these colors up close and in person on a new vehicle, instead of looking at a computer screen or a paint chip at the dealer. If you’re an extroverted type who wants your ride to turn heads, an out-of-the-ordinary color is a great way to do it. Keep in mind, however, that these colors can fall out of fashion much quicker than the “safe” standby colors, which can be an issue come resale time.
