2017 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

16 nissan altima sl thumbnail

Like what you see? You're looking at the nicely updated Altima, a car that took on a number of Nissan's new brand-wide design enhancements last year for a mix between the subtle Sentra and sultry Maxima. I suppose it makes sense for any mid-size family sedan to find the middle ground with respect to styling, something the Altima also does with respect to performance. The more wildly penned ...

2017 Volvo V60 Cross Country T5 Drive-E AWD

17 volvo v60 cross country t5 drive e awd Thumbnail

Volvo's Cross Country line is mostly unique in the industry. Certainly the Swedish company is not alone when it comes to producing crossover utilities, but unlike Volvo most premium-branded competitors duke it out in the regular SUV classes against the XC60 compact and XC90 mid-size models. Volvo takes things a step further by offering raised and bulked up versions of its V60 and upcoming V90 ... Read More

2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic Sedan

The compact premium D-segment is filled with sport/luxury hopefuls, but to most buying into this class there are only two considerations. Mercedes-Benz sells more C-Class models than any rival, but that's where things get a bit murky. Archrival BMW splits its D-segment sales into 3 and 4 Series entries, which means its overall sales are higher. In the U.S., 2016 calendar year-to-date numbers as ... Read More

2017 Infiniti Q60 3.0t Premium AWD Coupe

This year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit saw a renaissance of luxuriously equipped personal sport coupes, but only two of the four shown will see the light of day, at least as far as we know. Acura's Precision Concept, while really a four-door coupe, was merely a design exercise to introduce a new look for Honda's luxury division, first translated for the road via the ... Read More

2016 Lexus RC 300 AWD F Sport

16 lexus rc 300 awd f sport thumbnail

At first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking the RC 300 AWD F Sport is an RC F. Of course, the two models are based on Lexus' new RC sport coupe, so their design and overall shape is identical, while this version is visually amped via the F Sport upgrade package's more aggressive styling front to back, not to mention it wears the same Molten Pearl orange paint as the previous RC F I tested, but ...

2017 Aston Martin DB11 Launch Edition

17 aston martin db11 thumbnail

Chances are if you're an Aston Martin fan you tend to lean more toward classic styles than the latest trends, and I'm not just talking about your rolling stock. Your clothing is probably more along the lines of Brioni, Burberry or Ralph Lauren than Poyz & Pirlz, your feet are more likely covered by Florsheim or Franco Sarto than Asos Monk or Giuseppe Zanotti, you wear a Patek or Lange on your ...

2016 Kia Optima SX Limited

16 kia optima sxl turbo thumbnail

I can't say the new Optima is better looking, but it’s certainly different. Let's face it. Improving upon the previous third-generation design would've been difficult. That car changed wholesale perceptions of Kia as a brand. With the 2011 Optima, Kia immediately became synonymous with cool and cutting edge, not unlike the way the sixth-gen Sonata wowed the mid-size class when it debuted in ... Read More

2017 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine eAWD

17 volvo xc90 t8 twin engine inscription thumbnail

To say the XC90 is important for Volvo would likely be the year's biggest automotive related understatement. Crucial is a better descriptive. Over the past year Volvo has gone from a respected albeit almost forgotten premium brand to one of the most desirable, its U.S. sales catapulting from a somewhat embarrassing 53,548 unit total after the first 10 months of 2015 to 64,872 during the same ...

2017 Acura RDX AWD

17 acura rdx awd thumbnail

Name me a German compact SUV that comes standard with full LED headlamps? I'll save you the time of looking, as there isn't one. This advanced safety and styling feature is only optional with the Teutonic brands, each of which costs significantly more than Acura's RDX even when compared in base trim. From the Japanese premium brand's entry-level ILX sedan to its mid-size seven-occupant MDX ... Read More

2017 Subaru BRZ Limited Road

17 subaru brz thumbnail

The FR-S might be getting more attention for 2017, as a revised version transforms from now the defunct Scion brand to become the Toyota 86 in our market, but Subaru's arguably purer version of the car has been thoroughly updated too. The BRZ received a bevy of improvements for 2017, starting with obvious styling enhancements that include revised front and rear fascias featuring new standard ... Read More
