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.

2019 Genesis G70</br>September 24, 2018

The interior strikes the correct balance between luxury and practicality. The driver-centric stitched-leather-covered dashboard comes with a trio of large dials for operating the various heating/cooling functions, and the eight-inch tablet-like touchscreen doesn’t look like an afterthought.  The G70’s platform is based on the Kia Stinger hatchback (Kia is owned by Hyundai), but the G70 has been shortened by about three inches between the front and rear wheels.

Based on the 911 GT2 RS high-performance sports car, the 935 has a 700-horsepower 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that Porsche officials say is “largely identical to the high-performance standard unit mounted in the road-legal 911 GT2 RS.” The only gearbox is the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) paddle-shift transmission.

For the following model year there were new V-8 options, including a more potent supercharged powerplant for the newly designated XFR model.

If you could have only one automotive feature, this should be it. At Wheelbase Communications, we’ve chosen to stay away from providing an automotive-news column until we could do it in a non-traditional way. And here it is: the Auto Sleuth. Our worldly gumshoe has his ear to the ground, digging up the latest news on everything from product launches and updates to names in the news. The column is solely driven by reader interest. No boring statistics or auto-company pap here, just the straight goods peppered with the Auto Sleuth’s commentary and speculative, gossipy-style.
