ROAD TEST – 2021 HYUNDAI SANTA FE
The car industry loves to brandish something as all-new. So trigger happy are some manufacturers that merely updating the styling or changing a few interior trims constitutes fanfare.

ROAD TEST – 2020 MG ZS EV
One of the great joys of being in this job is laughing at people who say they really want to buy an EV but just can’t justify spending eighty-odd grand on a Tesla. I always tell them that there are five EVs under sixty grand. Suddenly, it’s not just cost that’s the problem. All the excuses come tumbling out and they end up buying a car that isn’t even a mild hybrid let alone an EV. They just aren’t serious about buying an EV I tell myself.
