2018 Volvo XC60

Consumer Guide First Spin

Volvo is on a tear.

After years of product stagnation, the Swedish company recently announced that it would bring out a string of eight new or redesigned models over a four-year period – a rather ambitious undertaking for such a small company.

2017 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

At first glance, the 2017 Range Rover Evoque convertible is an unlikely new offering from the British brand best known for classy sport-utility wagons that can go darn near anywhere. I must admit my early thoughts when hearing about the soft-top Evoque included visions of the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet—which answered a question no one was asking—and a colorfully worded version of “what are they thinking?”

1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

By the time Consumer Guide’s review of the 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue was published in the Consumer Guide 1989 New Car Buying Guide, production of the car itself had already ended. A completely redesigned front-wheel-drive Fifth Avenue would be introduced as a 1990 model, marking the end of Chrysler’s run of rear-drive luxury and near-luxury vehicles—at least for a while. As noted in the review, there were still cars on dealer lots, but maybe not for long.

1986 Buick LeSabre Coupe

1986 Buick LeSabre Coupe

For Buick, 1986 was a transitional year; it was also a down year saleswise. The transition came in the form of an all-new LeSabre. For ’86 Buick’s bread-and-butter big sedans and coupes migrated to a front-drive platform, joining the higher-end Electra models that were downsized the year before.

BMW 7-Series Cabin Lighting

We recently had a 2017 BMW M760i in through the Consumer Guide fleet for our usual rounds of editor test drives and evaluations. We’re no strangers to high-end luxury vehicles at CG HQ, but even by premium-brand standards, the M760i was one of the most lavishly equipped (and priciest) vehicles we’ve tested in quite a while.

2018 Acura TLX

2018 Acura TLX A-Spec

Consumer Guide First Spin Maybe Acura saw it coming.

Back in 2015, the company replaced its TSX compact and TL midsize sedans with the singular TLX that slotted between the two in size and price, offering both the TSX’s 4-cylinder engine and the TL’s V6 (and available all-wheel drive) to cover the spread. Considered a midsize, it was on the small end of that class, which always hurt it in comparisons of interior space.
