Lucid Air, Honda Civic top this week’s new car reviews

To kick off the year, we honored the 2024 Kia EV9 three-row electric SUV as our Best Car To Buy 2024. It outshined nearly 300 other new car models on sale with its combination of efficiency, practicality, relative value, and for expanding the appeal of electric vehicles to families. Our recommended EV9 trim, the dual-motor all-wheel-drive Wind model, costs a lot at $65,000, but that’s about $15,000 less than the next cheapest three-row electric SUV. 

We value a value, and it shows in our unique TCC Rating system that assesses every model on sale on an objective and even playing field. Here’s the latest crop of 2024 reviews, and how they rate.   

2024 Mercedes-Benz S-Class review

It’s the pinnacle of luxury and it has lots of space and power to boot. It also bristles with technology and offers all the most advanced safety features for a TCC Rating of 7.2 out of 10. 

2024 Acura TLX review

With its slick moves and reasonable price tag, and a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10, the 2024 Acura TLX is a must-shop midsize sedan.

2024 Honda Civic review

Tried and true, the Honda Civic keeps getting bigger and it keeps getting better, but the hybrid version will be a 2025 model. We rate the 2024 Civic at 6.8 out of 10.

2024 BMW X6 review

Standard with a mild-hybrid starter generator and now equipped with a friendlier user interface, the refreshed X6 earns a TCC Rating of 6.6 out of 10.

2024 Mazda MX-5 Miata review

The roadster is great to drive, but impractical in nearly every other way. It’s a 5.4.

The Air sedan outdoes the Tesla Model S in driving range and efficiency, and its Sapphire sets a new benchmark for large sport sedans. It’s an 8.6 out of 10. 

2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV review

The three-row EQS SUV pushes Mercedes into the EV segment with distinct looks, lots of space, ready power, and the latest in interior and safety technology. It earns a high TCC Rating of 8.2 out of 10.

2024 Genesis GV60 review

The Genesis GV60 combines sophisticated styling with electric performance and great features to present a compelling option in the luxury crossover space. It earns an 8.2 out of 10. 

2024 Mercedes-Benz EQS review

The electric sedan offers power, range, technology, and comfort, though it isn’t quite up to the luxury of the S-Class it emulates. It’s a 7.8.  

2024 Toyota bZ4X review

The Toyota bZ4X doesn’t lead the pack in terms of performance or technology, though it impresses in terms of its feature set and comfortable cabin to earn a TCC Rating of 7.2 out of 10.
