Clifford Atiyeh Test Drive Review:

Introduced for 2016, the subcompact HR-V sits below the compact CR-V and midsize Pilot. It’s based on the Fit hatchback but offers higher ground clearance, optional all-wheel drive, an...

George Kennedy Test Drive Review:

Plenty of crossovers and SUVs look capable, but few are actually 100% up to the task. Sure, some have plenty of cargo space or neat storage features, but few are as truly “outdoorsy” a...

Power Ranked 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack SEL 4Motion AWD better.
"The direct injection 1.8L turbo of the Alltrack 4 Motion delivers 199ft Torque at a very low RPM (1600). This gives this car plenty of power. While the Crosstrek has also a 2.0L but not turbo. So only 165 hp at 5000rpm and a weak 145 ft torque at 4000 rpm makes it very slow and feels the car heavy."
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack SEL 4Motion AWD better.
"More space for the knees and shoulders for two big teenagers in Alltracks backseat. And the seats are so much comfy by themselves that you cant even compare."
