2019 Chevy Traverse AWD Premier and High Country
Popular due to its practicality, roominess, 4G LTE WiFi, OnStar system, and comfortably fitting up to seven adults, Chevrolet’s design team added an impressive facelift to the new Traverse’s list of accolades; the custom Silver Ice Metallic body coat, 20-inch “Gloss Black” wheels with red accents, daytime running lamps, and roof rails gave the 2019 Premier edition a welcomed sporty-meets-aggressive appearance. It’s 3.6-liter, V-6 heart, nine-speed automatic transmission, plethora of safety options including an “SOS” button for emergencies, “Teen Driver” technology, eight-inch color touchscreen, and numerous apps for extensive mobile device capability are just few of the numerous attractions to add to its resume. Simply put, this room crossover SUV is perfect for whatever the family demands.
Note: The Traverse comes in an amazing seven trims, and the highest level is the High Country. This impressive version comes with emergency breaking, adaptive cruise control, leather interior, IntelliBeam high beam assist, and signature SkyScape power sunroof with tilt coupled with a back fixed skylight with sunscreen for optimal stargazing.

2019 Genesis G70
For the past few years, Genesis has truly claimed its place in the industry as a prestigious luxury brand at highly competitive pricing. The smooth, attractive G70—coming in two different turbocharged engines—provides amazing value, with the Prestige 2.0T starting at $34,900 for all its pampering amenities, Nappa leather interior, a Surround View monitor, responsive handling, and generous warranty package. The 3.3T edition terrorizes the streets with 365 horses packed under the hood; multiple driving modes seamlessly customize the riding experience. Ultimately, this sedan is highly recommended and shamelessly one of my favorite brands on wheels.
Price: Starting $34,900 (MSRP); $43,750 for the 3.3T option
