First Drive: 2019 Kia Sorento

Kia Sorento 2018

For a long time, Kia’s sales pitch was mainly focused on value, the deal that the customer gets when choosing a Kia.

Review: 2018 Tesla Model S P100D

2018 Tesla Model S P100D

What Tesla’s managed to pull with the Model S is and will always be remarkable. Out of nowhere, this small car company launched a full-size 100% electric premium sedan and seemingly overnight, disrupted a segment once reserved for established uber-flagship super-luxury saloon cars.
