Instead, the reviews of vehicles are subjective experiential reports of the vehicles in their naturally intended, real-world environment.
2020 Kia Soul EV’s Estimated Range Jumps to 243 Miles
Less than the Hyundai Kona, but way more than the last Soul EVNEWSCollin WoodardFebruary 16, 2019
Kia’s boxy little Soul hatchback got a classy redesign for 2020, and we now know it also gets a nice bump in gas mileage. Not that the 2019 is a gas hog, but the new 2.0-liter engine and transmission that powers most Soul models has boosted the mpg scores, and even the carryover turbo in the newly named GT-Line 1.6 top trim level shows a small bump up.
Range Rover Sport HST Debuts New 395-HP Ingenium Inline-Six
Land Rover chose the Range Rover Sport HST to be the first vehicle in its lineup that gets its brand new, turbocharged and electric-supercharged 3.0-liter inline-six. This engine will replace Jaguar Land Rover’s dated V-6 that was more or less a V-8 with two cylinders missing. In the HST, it’s good for 395 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque, which Land Rover says is enough to launch the Range Rover Sport from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds. For comparison, the 380-hp HSE Sport hits 60 mph in a claimed 6.8 seconds. Eventually, a 355-hp version will be offered, as well.
Automobile is an American automobile magazine published by the Motor Trend Group. A group of former employees of Car and Driverled by David E. Davis founded Automobile in 1986 with support from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation—using the credo No Boring Cars. Automobile distinguishes itself as more of a lifestyle magazine than the other automotive publications, an editorial theme that Davis greatly expanded upon from his tenure as the editor of Car and Driver, though it is a sister publication to Motor Trend.
Unlike most other automobile magazines, Automobile does not often do instrumented tests of cars or provide much technical data. Instead, the reviews of vehicles are subjective experiential reports with the cars in their naturally intended, real world environment. Additionally, Automobile reserves a good portion of each issue covering vehicles no longer in production, but still relevant to collectors or automotive history as a whole. For example, the magazine includes features such as “Collectible Classic,” an in-depth review of a particular older car, and reports from recent classic and antique car auctions. Automobile also has a regular column by former General Motors designer Robert Cumberford, who analyzes styling elements of current production models and show cars, often linking their design to those of older cars.[
