Atlas the Titan was condemned by Zeus to carry the weight of the heavens on his shoulders. Atlas the SUV carries the weight of families in its spacious confines, but is condemned by poor fuel economy.  

Updated for 2021 with a rugged Basecamp appearance package, a bolder design, and a turbo-4 now available with all-wheel drive, the Volkswagen Atlas three-row crossover SUV seats up to seven people and plenty of gear.

2021 Mazda CX-30

Mazda’s small but robust lineup reaches higher into the premium segment this year with a new Carbon Edition and fully loaded Signature trims on select models. There are no new models for 2021, but some of the smaller Mazdas have some of the largest changes. 

The CX-3 small crossover marches on despite the CX-30, and a turbocharged engine finally returns to the 2021 Mazda 3 compact sedan and hatchback. The MX-5 Miata remains the same.

The best-selling Subaru model already had safety at the forefront, with standard all-wheel drive, automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control. For 2021, Subaru adds adaptive LED headlights and automatic high beams to increase visibility at night, and a rear seat belt reminder so all passengers are buckled in or subjected to chimes and message alerts. Competitors such as the 2021 Toyota RAV4 and 2021 Honda CR-V offer similar safety suites.

The 2021 Lexus LX 570 full-size SUV available with three rows gets minor updates to the Sport package, compared to last year, but a major upgrade with the return of the limited edition Inspiration Series

Last offered for 2019, the LX 570 Inspiration Series adds black exterior parts and black leather inside.

The large-but-luxe SUV based on the Toyota Land Cruiser has off-road capability and a truck-like 383-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 with an 8-speed automatic in four-wheel drive that includes an electronic locking center differential. Available with a third row that can carry up to seven passengers, the truck-based 2021 LX 570 can tow up to 7,000 pounds on 20-inch wheels.

The well-equipped luxe truck comes with standard safety features such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, a surround-view camera system; convenience features include leather upholstery and wood trim, heated and cooled front seats, and a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Amazon Alexa compatibility. Sorry, Apple and Android users, Lexus isn’t having it.

Architecture firm SAOTA have gone about putting a major modern twist on the typical lakehouse aesthetic in a remote Canadian town. In departure from the regional traditional country cabin style, this summer house design is a highly modern concrete marvel with vast expanses of glass.

The house has been sensitively set back on the plot, situated closer to the street in order to preserve the natural bluff. Surrounding mature fir trees have been preserved to largely conceal the approach to the house, and build magical suspense on arrival.

VisionAir participants don’t even need to be pilots themselves. Cirrus Aircraft

Cirrus Aircraft’s new VisionAir program plans to make the ownership of a new single-engine Vision Jet a complete turnkey operation designed especially for people who might be new to owning a turbine aircraft, or might not even be pilots. But VisionAir is more than simply covering the tricky parts of aircraft ownership like maintenance and hangar issues. With VisionAir, Cirrus Aircraft promises to take care of all the details, from preparing the aircraft for flight to rolling out the red carpet for passengers and even stocking the owner’s favorite refreshments onboard. Cirrus says it delivered its 200th Vision Jet last month.

The Tahoe’s new for 2021, and it’s grown to gain some easy-to-see benefits: more third-row room, greater cargo volume, and enough space to handle all the generational family growing pains. 

But there are consequences to bigness, too, as Josh Baskin attests to in the classic coming-of-age-overnight film, “Big.” Fuel economy succumbs to physics, the garage needs an upgrade, and the price gets correspondingly big in the redesigned full-size SUV.
