2019 Audi Q3 Preview

The 2019 Audi Q3 stands out for its striking design outside and its big tech inside.
The trickle-down effect is in full force with the 2019 Audi Q3. Channeling big-brother Q8's styling with its octagonal grille, the 2019 Q3 marks as dramatic a departure from its predecessor in the looks department as we've seen from traditionally staid Audi in a while.

The biggest changes might not be obvious at first glance, however. With the 2019 Q3, Audi has transitioned its entry-level crossover SUV to the modern MQB modular architecture that now underpins the bulk of VW and Audi models. The new platform means that the Q3's wheelbase stretches by about 3 inches, while its overall length is up by about 4 inches to 176.6 inches. The redesigned Q3 is also about an inch wider than its predecessor.

That gives the Q3 a larger footprint than its direct rivals, which include subcompact crossover SUVs such as the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, and Volvo XC40.

The newfound girth reaps benefits inside, where the five-seat Q3's maximum cargo volume grows from just over 50 to nearly 54 cubic feet.

Up front, a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment dominates the Q3's dashboard, where it is wrapped in a thin silver hexagon that echoes the crossover's grille. The Q3 gets Audi's latest infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility plus Google Earth maps for the available navigation system via an LTE Advanced antenna. A 15-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system will be available.

In place of conventional analog gauges, the Q3 features a standard 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

On the safety front, the Q3 will offer automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, and active lane control. A surround-view camera system will also be on offer, as will a park assist system that can slot the Q3 into parking spaces at the press of a button.

Underhood, the Q3 will offer four turbocharged engines globally that culminates with a 230-horsepower turbo-4 paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. For now, Audi has only said that the Q3 will come with all-wheel drive, but a front-wheel-drive version may follow. A choice of 17-, 18-, and 20-inch wheels will be on offer.

For off-road use, the Q3 will be available with hill-descent control, but the sport suspension included with the available S Line appearance package may match the Q3 best.

Audi has not yet detailed standard and optional equipment for the U.S.-market Q3 when it goes on sale sometime in 2019. Later, a hybrid version of the Q3 and a high-performance SQ3 are likely to follow.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
