Steven Ewing spent his childhood reading car magazines, making his career as an automotive journalist an absolute dream job. After getting his foot in the door at Automobile while he was still a teenager, Ewing found homes on the mastheads at Winding Road magazine, Autoblog and Motor1.com before joining the CNET team in 2018. He has also served on the World Car Awards jury. Ewing grew up ingrained in the car culture of Detroit -- the Motor City -- before eventually moving to Los Angeles. In his free time, Ewing loves to cook, binge trash TV and play the drums.
Fun fact, Roadshow readers: This time last year, we were slogging through snow while covering the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. But even though the Detroit expo has officially moved to June, this post-CES week still proved to be quite busy, with a number of important debuts.
Here's a recap of what stole the automotive spotlight from Jan. 12-18.
Genesis' first SUV is finally, finally here. The SUV was officially revealed in South Korea on Tuesday, and not long after, we were able to take a quick spin in the three-row SUV on the busy streets of Seoul. Our time behind the wheel may have been limited, but we still walked away impressed.
Speaking of first SUVs, Aston Martin is now getting in on the luxury/performance/utility game with its 2021 DBX. The final car isn't quite done yet, but we were able to take a prototype out for a brief test in, of all places, Oman.
The weird, wonderful, three-wheeled Polaris Slingshot is back for 2020 with a number of meaningful upgrades. This so-called autocycle is still as quirky as ever, but thankfully, a lot easier to live with, too.
