Automakers released pricing on popular 2024 models this week, and in a surprise to no one the prices over 2023 models have all gone up. The question, as ever, is by how much. We also pit the redesigned Honda CR-V against the new Mazda CX-50 in a showdown of compact crossovers and came away smitten by a hybrid.
Here’s what moved us this week.
These compact crossovers lead their brands in the most popular vehicle segment on American roads and driveways.
The price increase comes with no changes to the compact crossover except for a new mid-grade hybrid model.
This three-row SUV with seating for seven is best with the V-6, and earns a TCC Rating of 6.5 out of 10.
The three-row crossover SUV with standard all-wheel drive gets a modest price increase and an updated version of EyeSight.
The compact sedan and hatchback cost more than last year’s model, making it more expensive than the Honda Civic.
The mid-size sedan retains its value but the GT model is no substitute for the discontinued Stinger.
The expanded recall of hybrid and plug-in hybrid models represents an escalation of a problem Ford thought it had fixed.
