2018 Volvo XC60 T8

2018 Volvo XC60 T8

Over the past couple of years, Volvo has released a surprising number of new or significantly revised models for such a small and focused automaker. The string started in 2016 with the redesigned XC90 midsize crossover, its technology and styling themes trickling down to the S90 sedan, XC60 compact crossover, V90 wagon, and “raised” V90 Cross Country wagon. At the start of the 2018 model year, some of those see new variants or powertrains, but the real news arrives later, with expected debuts of a smaller compact crossover named XC40 and a redesigned 60-Series midsize line. Also, all 2018 Volvos come with the Volvo On Call telematics system, which includes emergency notification, remote starting and lock/unlock capabilities, and the ability to find your car in a parking lot, with the free trial period being extended from 6 months to 4 years.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport

Hyundai redesigned its compact Elantra sedan last year, but the Elantra’s  hatchback sibling–the Elantra GT—wasn’t included in the party; it was carried over on the previous-generation Elantra platform. For 2018, the hatchback catches up with the sedan as Hyundai introduces a redesigned GT based on the latest European-market Hyundai i30 platform. And, Hyundai has sweetened the pot with a zingy new performance version that shares its surname and its mechanical enhancements with the recently introduced Elantra Sport sedan.

2015 Soul EV

“We’re baaaaaack.”

It was the 90s calling.

No, not the 1990s, with its mullet haircuts, punk-rock videos, and 50 shades of teal. Rather, it was the 90-mile range estimates on our Kia Soul EV.
