Sleek, Stylish, and Budget-Friendly 2017 Sedans


The traditional 4-door sedan may not be getting as much love as trucks and SUVs these days. After all, truck and SUV sales accounted for 63% of all consumer vehicle sales in 2016 -- resounding proof that folks love their trucks and SUVs. But if you're one of those buyers who automatically rule out sedans, you're missing out on some of the best vehicles the industry has ever produced. Today's ... Read More

Now that we're well into spring, with hopes of a long and warm summer just around the corner (Farmer's Almanac be damned), there's no better time to contemplate a new convertible. Fortunately, Audi has the ideal answer to your newfound dilemma of which drop-top to buy. Take a look at the recently updated 2017 Audi A3 Cabriolet, a refreshed version of the entry-level luxury convertible that's ... Read More

2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE

Remember when the Camry was the poster child of mobile conservatism? Its sole mission was to provide roomy, comfortable, reliable transportation to people who purposely wanted to attract as little attention as possible. Camry owners can't fly under the radar anymore. The only four-door sedan in the mainstream volume sector with a more conspicuous grille is the slightly larger Toyota Avalon that ... Read More

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Platinum

In the mainstream volume auto sector only Daimler's Smart brand has fewer models than FCA's Chrysler. Chrysler has three. And next year it'll be down to two. Just how FCA allowed this to happen is anyone's guess outside of Auburn Hills, but at least the two models that will carry the Pentastar flag into 2018 are very good at what they do. Case in point, the 300 has long been one of the ... Read More

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE Sedan

Remember when Mitsubishi had a full lineup of exciting sports models? I first had the pleasure of driving the tri-diamond brand's lineup at an all-model introduction way back in 2002 (a few years after starting out in the auto writing biz), and I was impressed by much of what they had on offer. In fact, I reviewed every single car and SUV available that year, which included compact, mid-size and ... Read More

2017 Ford Fusion Energi Platinum


We certainly have a lot of engine alternatives these days. While oil burners are becoming less prevalent among cars due to Volkswagen's Dieselgate scandal, various types of hybrid and full electrics are available from most manufacturers. "Energi" is Ford-speak for plug-in hybrid or PHEV, a technology that straddles the middle ground between an HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) and EV (Electric ... Read More

2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid


You can be forgiven for not knowing much about Acura's flagship RLX luxury sedan. It's been around for a while, but its numbers haven't reached the critical mass necessary to put it on most luxury buyers' radar. Either that, or they've seen it and opted to shop elsewhere. Likely it's a bit of both, but I've personally met a number of RLX owners who chose it over everything else on the market. ... Read More

2017 Subaru WRX Limited

WRX? EVO? WRX? EVO? WRX? Hold on… we no longer get to make this argument. Sadly, in a dedicated, systematic effort to transform itself into the most yawn-inducing automaker the world has seen since Daewoo disappeared under the umbrella of General Motors, Mitsubishi has forsaken its countless performance fans along with decades of world rally heritage by giving up on the legendary Lancer ...

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE 2.4 AWC

The subcompact SUV category is booming, with sales growing exponentially and new models being added regularly. A shocking four upstarts arrived on American roads in 2015, almost doubling competitors to a total of nine, while two newcomers will arrive before the close of 2017. All I can say is it's a shame Suzuki isn't here to take part. Many who remember the fun little Samurai will point to ... Read More

2017 Ford Escape Titanium AWD

Ford gave its popular Escape compact crossover SUV a major update for this 2017 model year, making it look like a smaller Edge in the process. This will be good news if you like Ford’s mid-size five-seat SUV, but I must say the Escape has certainly lost some of its unique character after swapping its unorthodox grille-less façade for a more commonplace six-sided grille design. It seemed like ... Read More
