2024 Toyota Tacoma, Porsche Cayenne top TCC’s new car news

Forget Taco Tuesday. The near once-in-a-decade launch of the redesigned Toyota Tacoma has made it Taco Week at The Car Connection. The bestselling mid-size truck gets thoroughly overhauled, riding on a new frame, with three new powertrains, eight trims, and an overlanding special in the new Trailhunter grade. 

We also spent some time in luxury crossover SUVs such as the new Porsche Cayenne and the latest Mercedes-Benz GLC, and we revisited the updated Kia Seltos.  

Here’s most of what moved us this week.

2024 Porsche Cayenne review

Sold with V-6, V-8, and plug-in hybrid powertrains, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne proffers a bounty of performance and a wealth of advanced features, but it’s inefficient and expensive, muting its TCC Rating to 7.2 out of 10.

2024 Kia Seltos review

The small crossover embraces a mid-cycle refresh for 2024 that promises a smoother transmission, good standard features, and a more daring style than other small crossovers. Fuel economy falls short, however, sinking its TCC Rating to 5.6 out of 10.
