This week we sampled the Mercedes-Benz EQ family of electric cars, ranging from the entry level EQB small crossover to the EQS SUV three-row family flagship, and we came away impressed with the easy transition from internal combustion to electric power. The price range isn’t so easy to ingest, however.
The redesigned 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV buffers the bridge between combustion and electric vehicles without breaking the bank. We check in on the changes to other three-row SUVs, and revisit the last run of a once great sedan.
Here’s what moved us this week.
2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV
2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV review
With a TCC Rating of 8.4 out of 10, the Benz EQS SUV steps out of the G-trucks’ shadows with swift, silent power.
2023 Genesis GV80 review
Though it never forgets about its heft, the Genesis GV80 delights in its design and its details, earning it a TCC Rating of 7.8 out of 10.
2023 Subaru Ascent review
A three-row SUV with scads of space, the 2023 Subaru Ascent goes all-in on safety for a TCC Rating of 6.5 out of 10.
2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB 300
Review: 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 eclipses the GLB small SUV
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQB is better than its gas sibling, but also isn’t the EV state of the art.
2023 Mitsubishi Outlander review
A new plug-in hybrid lifts the 2023 Mitsu Outlander’s appeal; the gas-only model earns a TCC Rating 6.3 out of 10, but the PHEV would rate a 6.8.
2023 Jaguar XF review
Sublime style and a peerless warranty put the 2023 Jaguar XF in the hunt; it earns a TCC Rating of 6.6 out of 10.
2023 Kia Sorento review
With a TCC Rating of 6.3 out of 10, the 2023 Kia Sorento gets the nod for plug-in hybrid mileage, but gets dinged in safety.
2023 Nissan Maxima review
Premium-car vibes, check—but the 2023 Nissan Maxima misses out on the sport-sedan fun. It gets a TCC Rating of 6.2 out of 10.
