Reviews and recalls. Those are the two major themes running through this week’s roster of the most popular news stories. And it should come as a surprise to no one that all the way atop that list, once again, is the wildly popular 2020 Kia Telluride — a name that has dominated reader interest in recent months. This week, that dominance comes courtesy of our expert review of the all-new mid-size SUV, which climbed to the No. 1 spot not just here but on our weekly list of our top five car reviews.

Reviews, in one form or another, occupy a full half of this week’s top 10 articles. At No. 4 is a quick-hit rundown of three things we like — and as many that we were not quite crazy about — with regard to the refreshed-for-2019 Kia Sorento. Meanwhile, a ranking of our 10 most popular car reviews of the 2019 model year lands at No. 5, our video review of the 2019 Kia Optima at No. 7 and our Quick Spin critique of the 2019 Hyundai Elantra GT N-Line at No. 9.

Recalls also drew a lot of eyes this week — be they owners of affected vehicles trying to find out what’s wrong with their car and how to get it fixed, or the internet equivalent of traffic-accident rubberneckers — accounting for nearly a third of the top 10. These were led by a recall of more than 262,000 model-year 2018-19 Mazda CX-5 SUVs, Mazda6 sedans and Mazda3 hatchbacks and sedans for a problem that could cause the engine to stall. A recall of the 2019 Subaru Legacy sedan and Outback wagon occupies eighth place, and one for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class SUV is in 10th.
