2012 Nissan March: The Jalopnik Review

The Nissan March (Micra in many countries outside of Asia and Latin America) is an entry-level small car that does a sobering job of making you realize that we don't really take small, cheap cars seriously in the US. And that's a real shame. This little car is stylish, fun, and is packed with cutting-edge technology… » 11/22/12 11:00am 11/22/12 11:00am

2014 Subaru Forester: Around The Block

The Subaru Forester has long been the vehicle of choice for outdoorsy people, competent, no-nonsense lesbians, and Vermonters (not to be confused with Vermonsters, a colossal tub of ice cream incapable of purchasing a car), and I don't think that's going to change with the new 2014 model. It's been updated in some… » 11/13/12 11:00pm 11/13/12 11:00pm

2012 Audi A7: The Jalopnik Review

2013 Chevrolet Malibu Turbo: The Jalopnik Review

The new Chevrolet Malibu Turbo is interesting mostly because of the "turbo" part of the name. But not for the reasons you'd think. When most of us think of "turbo" we still think of it in terms of fast and sporty, since that's what we grew up with. If a car was turbocharged in the 80s, then it was a sports car that… » 10/12/12 10:30am 10/12/12 10:30am

You Need Subaru's Versatile Little Sambar Pickup: The Jalopnik Review

None of Subaru's American PR people or, for that matter, any of the other American journalists took seriously my interest in Subaru's tiny Kei-car offerings, especially the little trucks and vans. It actually became sort of a running joke among everybody. I don't mind, I'm used to that. » 10/09/12 12:00pm 10/09/12 12:00pm
