    1397836680

    Not only have we tied a bow on the New York Auto Show, we've closed the books on the 2014 North American auto show circuit. (The Beijing show starts this weekend, but then we get some time off from the auto show madness.) While we'd like to say the North American season ended with a bang, that ...

    New York: We obsessively covered the 2014 New York Auto Show
    1397779260

    Every show, we're tasked with writing these wrap-up posts, and every time, nothing we ever come up with is as good as what our former Editor-In-Chief, John Neff, wrote back at the 2012 New York show. Besides, by the time you're reading this, we're all super tired. So for the sake of laziness ...

    1397691600

    We won't argue that crossovers are hugely successful vehicles, with automakers working to provide functional CUVs in a wide range of sizes. But over at BMW, things are just getting out of hand, as evidenced by this new X4 "Sports Activity Coupe" that debuts here at the 2014 New York Auto ...

    1397688000

    Look closely, kids – you're staring at the face of a refreshed Volkswagen Jetta. Yeah, it's hard to tell, what with the only noticeable changes consisting of slightly updated headlamps and taillamps, and some other aerodynamic tweaks. But the big news for the 2015 Jetta is what you can't ...

    New York: 2015 Acura TLX is all too familiar, despite its new tricks [w/videos]
    1397674860

    I'm confident in saying that the 2015 Acura TLX, revealed today at the New York Auto Show, will be a perfectly nice car to drive. It'll be nice to sit in, with plenty of luxurious amenities. It'll be... fine. And for Acura, "fine" is apparently good enough. I say that because while the TLX is an ...

    Feast your eyes on the new longroof model of the seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf – something we've already seen with Variant badging overseas.

    Video: Watch how Ford torture-tested the 2015 F-150
    1397086260

    The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for the past 37 years, and the best-selling vehicle outright for the past 32. That's quite a legacy, and thus, it's no surprise that Ford worked super-duper-extra hard on creating the all-new, aluminum-bodied 2015 F-150 that ...

    First Drive: 2015 Honda Fit
    Honda's Swiss Army Knife Has More Tools, Duller Blade 1397059020

    The last time we left our subcompact hero, the plucky Honda Fit was getting a bit long in the tooth. But the second-generation model was still holding its own rather well, and for the enthusiast on a tight budget who wanted it all, it remained the car of record in its class. If you desired an ...

    Following our first drive of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class a couple of years ago, not much has changed in the land of Merc's midsize, two-row crossover.

    Quick Spin: 2014 Audi A7 TDI
    Checking (Most Of) The Right Boxes 1396627200

    If you're a frequent reader of car reviews (my money says you are), you've no doubt come across prose about how a car "checks all the right boxes." It's a common phrase – I'm guilty of using it myself. And I'm about to use it again. You see, I've just spent a week with the 2014 Audi A7 ...

    Report: Subaru might build WRX hatchback after all
    1396623660

    The 2015 Subaru WRX is awesome. Really awesome. We told you as much in our first drive of the new sedan back in December. Honestly, our only complaint about Fuji Heavy's new performance machine is that it's no longer offered as a hatchback – the new WRX is a sedan-only affair, despite the ...
