2019 Audi Q8</br>November 26, 2018

The Q8’s fastback styling stands in contrast to the Q7’s square-back design that allows for a kid-zone third row (the five-passenger Q8 has two rows) plus additional cargo room, especially with the second and third rows folded flat. Although both models are built off the same platform, the Q8 is shorter by three inches, which also accounts for the Q7’s increased functionality.

2019 Kia Forte</br>October 29, 2018

Over the years, the Forte, along with many of its competitors, has grown up (physically and stylistically) to a point where it could easily qualify as a principal family sedan. Compared to the outgoing model, the 2019 Forte is more than three inches longer and nearly an inch wider. The distance between the front and rear wheels remains the same. A modest gain in roof height means more overall passenger space as well as increased cargo volume.

GMC Terrain: 2010-’17</br>October 23, 2018

For a compact utility vehicle, the Terrain treated its occupants to plenty of space, along with lots of stowage room behind the sliding rear seat. On both points, the Terrain was ahead of the competition. Ride quality was also above the norm, thanks in part to exemplary suspension tuning and sufficient distance between the front and rear wheels that helped smooth out rough roads.

Each TRD variant receives thicker underbody braces to increase torsional rigidity, and each has front brakes with 12.9-inch-diameter rotors, compared with the 12-inch rotors that are standard in the Camry and Avalon XSE trims. The TRD models are 0.6 of an inch lower and have specially tuned shock absorbers for more responsive handling. Wider, low-profile performance tires on lightweight matte-black alloy wheels are part of the mix, too.

No boring statistics or auto-company pap here, just the straight goods peppered with the Auto Sleuth’s commentary and speculative, gossipy-style.
