Informed Today Influential Tomorrow


2024 Chevy Traverse, Lexus GX top this week’s new car reviews

From the hills of Missoula to the forests of Germany, we traveled far and wide this week to cover the latest cars coming to market this summer if not sooner. In the immediate term, we finally got to publish our impressions of the latest three-row SUVs with completely different attitudes, one for the supersizing family and the other for off-road considerations. 

Here’s what moved us this week. 


2024 Chevrolet Traverse review

A bold look and a tech-rich cabin bring Chevy’s biggest crossover neatly up to date, earning a TCC Rating of 6.4 out of 10, before safety scores have settled in.

2024 Lexus GX review

The Lexus GX finally gets with the modern times while further enhancing its off-road capabilities, though it goes light on the luxury aspect. It earns a TCC Rating of 5.8 out of 10. 

2025 Subaru Legacy review

With a spacious cabin and all-wheel drive standard across the lineup, the 2025 Subaru Legacy is a great candidate for a family sedan. Get it while you can, because it gets discontinued at the end of the 2025 run. 


2024 Hyundai Sante Fe, Sonata, Ioniq 5 earn Top Safety Picks

The 2024 Ioniq 5 electric crossover earns a Top Safety Pick+ for its rear-seat passenger protection.

The large hybrid sedan now starts at $42,535.
