2020 Toyota Yaris: Bubbly Looks, Hybrid Power And Everything Else We Know

2020 Toyota Yaris: Bubbly Looks, Hybrid Power And Everything Else We Know

Toyota's Euro and Asian market Yaris is an interesting kettle of fish; affordable, cheerful but not so much fun behind the wheel. Supermini's like Ford's Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo have it licked for driving pleasure and sheer appeal. Luckily for Toyota fans this could all about to change with the Japanese carmaker putting the finishing touches on its all-new, TNGA-based replacement for European and Asia Pacific regions. About time you say?

2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition Debuts In All Black Everything - Autoblog

2020 Honda Pilot Black Edition debuts in all black everything - Autoblog

The Honda Pilot isn't a shouty SUV, but this 2020 Pilot Black Edition is aiming to change your mind. All black everything is the theme here, and we think Honda has captured the look successfully with this Pilot. Honda is positioning the Black Edition as the absolute peak of luxury for the Pilot lineup, with the MSRP being even higher than the Elite. With the $1,095 destination charge added in, you'll be paying $50,715. So yes, there's finally a Pilot for over $50,000. That's expensive, but even a fully-loaded Explorer is about $60,000. For your hard-earned dollars, Honda provides blackout treatments to the grille, headlight trim, side trim, door handles, window trim and fog light trim. The 20-inch alloy wheels are also painted in black. Basically, if it could be done in black, Honda has done it. There's a striking surprise waiting on the interior, though. Instead of a bland black interior, Honda is sprinkling in red accents throughout. You get red stitching on the front and second-row seats, door panels and the steering wheel. Red accent lighting can be found on the doors, cupholders and dash. Then, you get a sweet, red center console lid that looks shockingly cool. Black Edition logos can be found on the grille, tailgate, front seats and floor mats. Maybe it'll all be cool enough to wrangle folks into a more expensive Pilot over a Passport. The rest of the 2020 Honda Pilot lineup increases in price ever so slightly. Front-wheel-drive models see an increase of $100 in MSRP, whereas all-wheel-drive Pilots are $200 more expensive than an equivalent 2019 Pilot. This means the cheapest Pilot LX with front-wheel drive now costs $32,645. Honda says the 2020 model year Pilot will begin to arrive in dealerships tomorrow.

2019 Honda Accord Touring 2.0t Review | The Car With Everything

2019 Honda Accord Touring 2.0T Review | The car with everything

In a market that's rushing to fill every micro-segment or create new ones, let's consider a vehicle that offers a little of everything all in one package: the 2019 Honda Accord. What we love about the Accord is that the comfort-oriented trims work just as well as the sport- and economy-oriented trims – and that Honda has supported each with great powertrains, comfortable and easy-to-use interiors, and a healthy dose of style. It's refreshing to see a sensible pushback to the proliferation of niche models.

The Accord's low, wide and imposing shape is further enhanced by tight sheetmetal folds and a lack of extraneous vents and grilles. To me, it looks like a Japanese take on the Dodge Charger – aggressive, athletic, but leaner and cleaner – and I love that. That's not to say it's a perfect design. Some of my colleagues aren't big fans of the fastback roofline, as well as the huge, shiny, upright grille. At least you can tone down the grille a bit with one of Honda's optional designs.

2020 Toyota Highlander | Everything We Know So Far

2020 Toyota Highlander | Everything we know so far

One of the original and most popular three-row family crossovers has been completely redesigned, and if you liked the previous version, chances are you'll like the incrementally improved 2020 Toyota Highlander. It's well-equipped with generous safety equipment and entertainment features, and is available with the best fuel economy by far thanks to its unique hybrid offering. That said, it is smaller than virtually all of its competitors, so if you plan to frequently use all three rows of seats and/or need lots of luggage space, it may not be for you.

We have yet to drive the 2020 Highlander, but will update this post when we do. In the meantime, you can find everything we know so far about it below.

What's new for 2020?

The Toyota Highlander is all new for 2020, riding on the same new platform that underpins other recently redesigned Toyotas. It's only a bit bigger than before, and largely represents evolutionary changes intended to bolster its refinement and sharpen its driving experience. The previous Highlander's V6 engine is now standard (the weakling four-cylinder has been dropped), while the Highlander Hybrid model is more powerful, more efficient and now available with front-wheel drive. The advanced torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system from the RAV4 Adventure is now an option on some V6 trim levels. Finally, styling inside and out is significantly different and infotainment features have been bolstered with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A jumbo 12.3-inch touchscreen is also now available.

2019 Honda Cr-v Review And Buying Guide | Everything You Need To Know

2019 Honda CR-V Review and Buying Guide | Everything you need to know

The 2019 Honda CR-V is one of the bestselling vehicles in the country, and while popularity doesn't necessarily go hand-in-hand with excellence, it most certainly does in this case. The CR-V is impeccably well-rounded with space, fuel economy, performance, value, safety and quality that betters most of its compact crossover SUV competitors. And while some of its rivals may be sportier, more characterful or off-road capable, none manage to cater to such a wide audience. We highly recommend any search for a small SUV include the 2019 CR-V.

What's new for 2019?

The Honda CR-V is unchanged for 2019. It was last redesigned for 2017.

What's the CR-V's interior and technology like?

The CR-V provides a tasteful, if a tad dull, design aesthetic backed up with above-average materials and build construction for this segment. If you're a previous CR-V owner, you'll note that this most recent version features a higher-quality and more premium environment than past models. If you aren't, you'll still find it to have one of the nicest cabins in terms of quality, and also one of the most functional, as it boasts a number of clever storage solutions in the center console.
