Look, we at Jalopnik are sort of biased when it comes to the small, light, honest, pure, emotional, exciting, intuitive, and interactive small roadster that is the Mazda Miata. Knowing how good each generation of the car has been, does the new one hold up as a pure expression of driving enthusiasm?
The Subaru Crosstrek (or XV) has a reputation to uphold being a Subaru promising the cavalier, maverick-type abilities of all-wheel-drive. So how exactly does this lifted hatchback CUV thing handle taken way way out of its comfort zone?
The Aston Martin DB9 wasn’t ever as fast as the rest of the field, yet it somehow managed to keep being the coolest gran tourer for more than a decade. XCAR demonstrates what the AMG-powered DB11 will have to top.
Nine days. Nine days until SPECTRE, the 24th Bond film, is released stateside and we finally get to see the Aston Martin DB10, Jaguar C-X75, Land Rover Defender “Bigfoot” and the Range Rover Sport SVR in glorious action.

Remember how I wouldn’t shut up about riding in that amazing C-Type Jaguar in the Mille Miglia through Italy? Well, Alex Goy actually got to drive the beast, and he gives a wonderful account of the whole experience in his segment on XCAR.
The long awaited new Honda Civic Type R comes with 306 horsepower and 295 foot pounds attacking its front wheels, plus a pretty aggressive body. Would that be too much for you?
The Ferrari F12 is mad. It’s supposed to be a gran turismo, yet it can outrun most “track focused” supercars using the insane power of a V12 and a thing called aerobridge. It’s a modern classic already, but Ferrari should totally ruin that by producing it forever.
