The 18 Things You Learn Driving The McLaren 650S In The Rain

The first thing you learn is that it doesn't usually rain in Spain, but when it does, it's the sort of rain that requires you to be more Captain Nemo than Ayrton Senna. And that's when you figure out how a McLaren 650S is as a submarine, not a car. » 4/02/14 12:00pm 4/02/14 12:00pm

The 2015 Audi A3 Is Premium, Tidy, Fun, And Not A Hipster At All

The 2015 Audi A3 is not soy milk. The 2015 Audi A3 is not the Pizza Underground. The 2015 Audi A3 is not even a fixie. But while its hipster marketing plan may not jibe with most of the actual car, there is one thing that should appeal to its ironic target demographic. It is very retro, in the best way possible. » 3/17/14 12:20pm 3/17/14 12:20pm

Why Ford's Tiny 1 Liter, 3 Cylinder Is The Future Of Gasoline Engines

As a small, weird guy, I've always had a special affinity for small and weird engines. In the US, almost any 3-cylinder is shoved into these categories. Ford's new 1L Ecoboost engine may be the first 3 cylinder in the US that's not weird. It's is, however, small, and very impressive — I know because I finally drove… » 3/14/14 2:20pm 3/14/14 2:20pm

2009 Koenigsegg CCXR Edition: The Jalopnik 180 MPH Runway Blast

Christian von Koenigsegg is standing next to a 2009 CCXR Edition outside of his factory. We're about to head to his company's runway test track for some photos. He looks at me. "Do you want to drive?" I said yes before he finished saying "do." » 2/27/14 1:20pm 2/27/14 1:20pm

2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Big Winged Rude Blue Rally Machine You Deserve

The big wing. It's the first thing you notice. It's like Subaru mounted a billboard on the back of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI that simultaneously creates downforce and repels women of all ages. No fat chicks, fat downforce. This is not a car that will get you laid, not that it really matters. » 2/17/14 10:00am 2/17/14 10:00am

Volvo Just Proved Wagons Are Better Than Crossovers

The Volvo XC60 and V60 are capable vehicles in both their segments, but having driven both of them back to back and comparing their specs, I can't imagine why one would spend more on the crossover than the wagon. Here lies, in my opinion, a strong business case to consider wagons over crossovers. » 2/10/14 12:20pm 2/10/14 12:20pm

What's it like to drive a 700hp prototype supercar in a downpour?

Max Prince has never driven anything quite like this. Its slapdash aero is meant to keep the LS9-powered mule hunkered down, but the airfield is sopping wet. There's no bodywork, because the V8 roadster isn't technically done. Max clears his throat and fires the engine. "Will I survive?" he wonders. » 1/29/14 6:22pm 1/29/14 6:22pm

The 2014 BMW 4 Series Convertible Is Great But I'm Not Sure I Am

"Must be motherfucking nice."That's what the woman standing on the corner, laden with grocery bags, said as I pulled up to the intersection in a white BMW 435i Convertible. And you know, she's not a bad car reviewer. It is pretty motherfucking nice. » 1/22/14 12:40pm 1/22/14 12:40pm

The 2014 BMW M235i Coupe Is What You Hope All BMWs Will Be

LA is lousy with BMWs. After seeing innumerable X3s and X6s parking across multiple parking places, it's easy to forget some very crucial things. Things like the fundamental goodness of humans and BMW's remarkable ability to make incredible sports coupés. Luckily, the new BMW M235i will remind you of half of those… » 1/20/14 2:20pm 1/20/14 2:20pm

The 2014 Mazda3 Will Make You Wonder Why People Buy Anything Else

Mazda has been on a bit of a roll lately. The CX-5 and 2014 Mazda6 are some of our favorite cars in their segment. And please don't get us started on the Miata. The 2014 Mazda3 has a lot to live up to. The smile might have been wiped off its face, but that's ok. It doesn't disappoint. » 7/11/13 5:01pm 7/11/13 5:01pm

2014 Volkswagen Golf GTD: The 40 MPG+ Diesel Hot Hatch Of Your Dreams

I drove the new Golf GTD from Wolfsburg to Berlin on the Autobahn and some mountain roads. What I've learned is that, although the U.S. isn't getting it for a while, it's a car worth waiting for. » 7/04/13 2:00pm 7/04/13 2:00pm

2013 Ram 1500: The Jalopnik Truck Review

In the early '70s, just before the oil embargoes kicked off, Americans tended to drive massive land yachts. With the exception that rear wheel drive sedans have largely disappeared from the American carscape, not much has changed. Today, America drives huge pickup trucks instead. » 8/24/12 10:30am 8/24/12 10:30am

Chevrolet Volt: First Drive

After four years of planning and three years of hype, we've finally driven a production Chevrolet Volt plug-in "hybrid." We expected some character from the most obsessively engineered vehicle in GM's history. We didn't expect so many personalities at once. » 10/14/10 4:15pm 10/14/10 4:15pm
