When we reviewed the 2008 XKR we took issue with its handling, interior and gearbox. The 2010 Jaguar XKR Convertible adds little more than a new, 510 HP engine, but that's our kind of a band-aid.
The 2011 Mercedes SLS AMG is the first clean sheet design from AMG and the new flagship for the entire company. As a modern re-interpretation of the 300SL it's also a return to the fast, striking Mercedes of yore.
The 2010 Acura MDX has been loaded down with technology like no SUV before. That's a good thing, as that tech solves so many of the problems inherent to the SUV form factor.
In Europe, this is the Honda Accord. Here, it's the 2010 Acura TSX V6 and it's expected to compete with the BMW 3-series. Can two extra cylinders and 79 more HP really do that?
Despite its smiley new face, the 2009 Mazda MX-5 Miata, more than any other car, begs the question: Are you man or mouse? Sadly, it turns out I'm the latter.
Normally, when we review an exciting new performance car, we like to use a dramatic burnout shot. Unfortunately, the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO barely chirps its front wheels on its 5.2-second trip to 60 MPH.
The 2009 VW Jetta SportWagen TDI is frugal and fun, but its DSG transmission doesn't suit the diesel engine. Should you buy one?
Yesterday we reveled in the frugal performance of the VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI's diesel engine, but bemoaned the awful DSG gearbox. Join us today as we examine the Jetta's abilities in detail.
Conventional car enthusiast wisdom states the VW Jetta TDI is the thinking man's fuel-efficient car. Free of the complication, sacrificed driving dynamics and image of hybrids, it makes do with diesel instead.
Replacing the CLK, the 2010 Mercedes E-Class Coupe adopts a similar look to the new E-Class Sedan and most of its mechanicals. It's just a shame it's not as fun to drive as the four-door.
Since the early ‘90s we've seen Mercedes slowly dilute its peerless quality in a drive for increased sales. The 2010 Mercedes E-Class represents a major step back towards the timeless luxury cars of yore.
Like the rest of the BMW range, the 2009 BMW Z4 is bigger, heavier and more complicated than its predecessors. But could it be bigger, heavier, more complicated and much better to drive?
The Switzer P800 Nissan GT-R makes over 700 HP at the wheels, nearly double that of the comparatively plain-Jane GT-R. Luckily that's at all four wheels, because we drove it through both snow and ice.
