carsGas/electric hybrid cars have come a long way from the geeky-looking Honda Insight and the original Toyota Prius. Today, there are hybrid choices by almost every manufacturer in almost every market segment from compact two-seaters, to full-size, nine-passenger SUVs. The greatest number of choices are in the compact or midsize sedan segment, and include hybrid versions of popular gasoline-powered vehicles like the Ford Fusion and Kia Optima for example, while some are stand-alone hybrid designs like the Toyota Prius and Honda CR-Z.

2014 Kia SoulWhen the Kia Soul debuted in 2009, it joined the Scion xB and Nissan Cube in that unique market niche defined by the cool factor, funky styling, low prices, and youthful spirit. A mere five years later, we’re watching xB and Cube follow the Honda Element into oblivion. Meanwhile, the Kia Soul continues to enjoy strong sales momentum.

With an eye towards holding on to the hipsters — which seemingly include as many Boomers as Millennials — Kia introduced a new Soul for the 2014 model year that’s been heavily redesigned, with updated styling inside and out, — plus a host of new features. read more »

2014 Honda AccordWe recently had the opportunity to test drive the 2014 Honda Accord EX-L standard gas version, and the TRG gas/electric hybrid version of the EX-L in back-to back weeks. Both cars were similarly equipped, and this will be a comparison review.

Both an all-new Accord sedan and coupe were introduced last year, and only minor updates have been made for 2014. However this year saw the debut of a regular gas/electric hybrid model and a limited-production, plug-in hybrid as well. read more »

2014 Toyota TundraThe 2014 Toyota Tundra CrewMax pickup is big — American big. I grew up with the concept that Japanese pickups were small, spartan mini-trucks that were best for commuting and occasional light-duty hauling. That’s no longer the case as both Toyota and Nissan are strongly entrenched in the full-size American style pickup market.

You could say that the new Tundra is Texas big as it’s built in San Antonio, Texas, USA. read more »
