Way back when he was a kid all Kunal did was talk about cars. Now, much older and maybe a bit wiser, all he still mainly talks about is cars. Somethings never seem to change. Except now he also writes about cars when he isn't talking about them.

The Kia K5 is much nicer to drive than the outgoing Optima, and the overall feeling I got from behind the wheel was one of refinement and comfort. Wide seats, tons of room for occupants front and rear, and a quiet, compliant ride are the main attributes to be found.
First Drive 2021 Nissan Versa: Appreciate that for under $20,000 you can get a brand new, well-engineered little car with a full factory warranty and some really cool tech.
And now there’s a new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, and for this third generation, Ford has thrown everything they have at it. The timing couldn’t be better either with the recent release of the epically good Ram TRX. Ram also threw everything they had at their truck with the distinct advantage of being able to beat the crap out of a bunch of Ford Raptors and learn exactly where they failed.
Review 2021 Toyota Venza: Sitting in between the RAV4 and the Highlander in size and price the Venza starts at just under $40K.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX suspension has been completely replaced: new forged aluminum control arms in the front, new bushings, new links, and new geometry. To fit the standard 35-inch tires the TRX is a full 8 inches wider than a RAM Rebel, easily noticeable when looking at it head-on.
Mazda is not positioning this as a competitor to the recent crop of brash hot hatches like the Honda Civic Type R and Hyundai Veloster N. The Mazda3 rates much higher on the maturity scale. There are no big wings or aggressive dive planes to be found here.
I grew up in the late 80s and 90s, so I don’t know what driving was like in the 60s but the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack makes it feel like I was taken back to that era. You get into this impossibly long coupe through a door that opens nearly 90 degrees and step into what you think has got to be a roomy cabin but ends up smaller than you expect. Sort of like a reverse TARDIS.
All-new for 2020, the popular Mercedes GLE adds a heavy dose of luxury and tech.
Get in the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance edition and things get a bit more serious. Power from the dual motors add up to 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque good for a 0-60 mph blast in the mid 3-second range. That’s about as fast as a Tesla Model 3 Performance, a Ferrari Portofino, or a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S...
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is a car with enough power to flatten a city block but from the driver’s seat it feels about as friendly as a Civic Si. The throttle has a long travel so you can easily meter out all the power; the supercharger is invisible, there is no Hellcat whine, no lag, no on-boost histrionics. It...
