2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio review: Happiest when driven hard

Maria J. Danford

The Stelvio is as fast as it is quite.


Steven Ewing/Roadshow

I can not consider of an SUV which is additional interesting to generate than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. It is not the fastest, the speediest or even the sharpest crossover you can acquire. But with its uncooked, raucous demeanor, the Alfa is a full thrill.

Like

  • Ferrari-sourced motor is a heart of gold
  • Superb chassis tuning
  • Strong suite of driver-guidance tech

Really don’t Like

  • Interior is even now sub-par for the class
  • Infotainment tech is improved, but even now not terrific
  • Questionable trustworthiness

The entire Stelvio lineup gets

2020 Volkswagen Golf TSI

The Golf’s styling is a little drowsy, but this car’s looks should age well.


Craig Cole/Roadshow

It can be not likely to gain any accolades for groundbreaking design, and nobody will confuse it with some souped-up sports activities vehicle, but what the Volkswagen Golf lacks in psychological attractiveness, it a lot more than tends to make up for in other regions. This machine is simple and genuine, a authentic salt-of-the-earth hatchback that’s not only versatile but unexpectedly enjoyable.

Like

  • Slick-shifting guide transmission
  • Incredible authentic-environment performance
  • Powerful midrange torque
  • Versatile cargo keep

Never Like

  • Odd rev-hang at higher rpm
  • Motor can

2021 Kia Seltos review: Entry-level goodness

Maria J. Danford

Superior things appear in compact packages.


Emme Corridor/Roadshow

Kia’s been on type of a tear revamping its crossover and SUV lineup. But when the outcomes are as excellent as the boxy-great Soul or certainly wonderful Telluride, you will never hear me — or prospective buyers — complaining. The subsequent little bit of Kia utility goodness is the subcompact 2021 Seltos, and it is really however yet another house operate.

Like

  • Unique appears to be like.
  • Wonderful total value.
  • Plenty of common and accessible tech.

Don’t Like

  • Strike-or-skip efficiency.
  • Sluggish preliminary acceleration, even with turbo energy.

I appreciate the way

Galaxy A01 review: Bare-bones smart phone for the budget conscious

Maria J. Danford

The Galaxy A01 is a no-fuss, low-priced Android phone that is the cheapest member of Samsung’s A-series of budget phones. Priced at $150 (though we’ve seen it on sale for as low as $100 unlocked from Samsung), the phone’s bare-bones hardware and features — like its plain design and low-resolution display– aren’t much to get excited about. But the handset covers the basics well enough that, for its low price, it should be a decent device to snap photos, check email, watch videos and, of course, make calls.

Like

  • Affordable
  • Headphone jack
  • Decent camera

Don’t Like

  • Meager onboard memory
  • Camera’s

Motorola Edge Plus: The best cameras of any Moto phone — but I wanted more

Maria J. Danford

The Motorola Edge Plus has pretty much everything you’d hope for in a premium 5G phone: A Snapdragon 865 chipset, a giant battery, an OLED screen with a high refresh rate and multiple rear cameras with heavy-duty specs. Motorola took features found on other top-of-the-line Android phones, put its own Moto spin on them and built them all into one of the most wonderful Android phones I’ve tried in a long time.

Like

  • Long-lasting battery so far.
  • Edge display.
  • Best cameras on any Moto phone.

Don’t Like

  • Verizon exclusive.
  • No IP rating for water resistance.
  • Night Vision isn’t great.

But
