    Quick Spin: 2014 Scion tC

    1400083020

    Once upon a time, the Scion brand sought to bring more youthful buyers into the Toyota stable. In the early 2000s, Scion launched with its plucky xA and xB hatchbacks, and a lot of people bought into its affordable, customizable, funky lineup – myself included. I was once the proud owner of ...

    First Drive: 2015 BMW M4 Coupe

    1399910340

    Launched out of the seat by a huge, unexpected dip in the road, yet still held largely in place by the smooth webbing of my safety belt, I clench my teeth waiting to come back to earth. A tenth of a second later, the M4 Coupe touches down and my body is slammed into the leather seat cushion. All ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost

    1399651080

    I'll be honest; when Ford first unveiled its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, I was skeptical. Past attempts at building turbocharged American cars were almost universally awful, I reasoned, so why would Ford's latest effort be any different? This may seem foolish today, considering the success that the ...

    Review: 2014 Toyota 4Runner Limited

    1399564620

    What would you say if we told you that outside of Jeep and Land Rover, the best brand for those who want to go off road is Toyota? Sounds remarkable, eh? But the truth is, Toyota's history of providing vehicles for the rougher bits of our blue marble dates back to 1950, barely a decade after ...

    First Drive: 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive

    1399478280

    Mercedes-Benz has made reviewing the B-Class Electric Drive pretty darn easy. They included the grade the car deserves right in the name: A nice, solid B. For an electric car in today's climate, that's actually pretty high praise. No, this car does not represent the crowning achievement of ...

    First Drive: 2015 Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

    1399305420

    It was probably the best headache I've ever had in my life. A spicy combination of Lamborghini's superlative new 2015 Huracán LP 610-4, fast-as-you-can-drive laps of the tricky Ascari race circuit, 80 kilometers of the Ronda Road and a healthy dose of southern Spanish sun had left me with ...

    First Drive: 2015.5 Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar [w/video]

    1398959820

    Polestar Performance has been around since 1996, but until recently, it only did two things: manage Volvo motorsports operations and run a specialist consumer-facing side that built concept cars and boosted Volvo's turbocharged production cars by 15 to 60 horsepower. Five years ago, it fulfilled ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Land Rover Range Rover L Autobiography

    1398873420

    When it comes to fullsize, ultra-luxurious SUVs, you can't do much better than a Range Rover. We've gushed over the biggest Land Rover several times, praising this latest generation's powerful engines, luxurious interiors, and ability to climb both mountainsides and social ladders all while ...

    Review: 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

    1398787020

    With more than a year separating my test week with the 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250 from its debutante ball at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, I had the advantage of a mountain of data and diatribes with which to inform my initial opinion. Conversations with colleagues and coworkers netted splintered ...

    First Drive: 2015 BMW i8 [w/video]

    1398700620

    The most important thing to keep in mind while driving BMW's all-new i8 is that it's not a product of the company's vaunted M division. Sleek sports-coupe design, carbon-fiber construction and blistering acceleration may cause automotive enthusiasts to drool, but the i8 has not been ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Lexus CT 200h F Sport

    1398441420

    The idea of the Lexus CT 200h F Sport intrigues me. A compact, premium, efficient hatchback with an added dose of sportiness? Sign me up. It's why I'm still crossing my fingers for Volkswagen to sell the Golf GTD on our shores (though recent reports on that front are bumming me out). And judging ...

    Review: 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo

    1398355020

    "The Ultimate Driving Machine" has been BMW's tagline for nearly 40 years. Launched in the 1970s, the marketing campaign was a stroke of genius by ad firm Ammirati & Puris, as the phrase helped differentiate the imported Bavarian cars from their fellow European rivals by subtly pointing out ...

    Quick Spin: 2015 Volvo S60 T6 Drive-E

    1398268620

    For those not paying attention, Volvo has updated its S60 sedan range for 2015 with a new range of engines under the Drive-E label. Wearing the same T5 and T6 badges to note the relative levels of power under the hood, both engines are 2.0-liter four-cylinders, with the lesser being turbocharged ...

    Review: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible

    1398182220

    It may be impossible to spend a day in Chevrolet's new C7 Corvette without someone asking what you think about the iconic sports car – magnetism is an understatement. I was approached by strangers in a grocery store parking lot, parents waiting for their children after school and ...

    Review: 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

    1398095820

    "No Land Rover has any business sounding like that!" My dad's words hung in the air like the few stray puffs of exhaust trailing in my wake as I motored away from him following a nice dinner. His parting statement to me really summed up the experience of driving this Chile Red Range Rover Sport. ...

    First Drive: 2014 Porsche 911 Targa

    1397577540

    I've watched the electro-hydraulic roof panel open and close about 73 times in the past hour, but its fascinatingly complicated operation still has me mesmerized. I've concluded that only a German automaker – Porsche, to be more specific – would go through the trouble of engineering a ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman All4

    1397242680

    The standard Mini Countryman is a bit of an odd duck against the backdrop of 'normal' small crossovers like the Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape, but I sort of get it. Apply the same winning Mini formula to a CUV, and you get a smaller-than-average entry in the segment, one that is far more ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 BMW 328d xDrive Sport Wagon

    1397231820

    There's a running joke among auto writers that the perfect car would be a diesel-powered, rear-drive wagon with manual transmission and no power accessories whatsoever. It would only be available in brown and would somehow be as fun to drive as a Mazda MX-5 Miata. Makes total sense, ...

    First Drive: 2015 McLaren 650S Spider [w/video]

    1397145420

    It seems like only yesterday that we enjoyed a mad dash in McLaren's wild P1 hybrid wallet-breaker. Now here we are, already back with the Brits, this time in on the great roads of southern Spain and at Ascari Race Resort as McLaren launches what has already become its most important seller, the ...

    First Drive: 2015 Honda Fit

    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 ...
