    Featured: Editors' Choice: Top Five 2014 New York Auto Show Debuts [w/video]
    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 [w/video]
    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 ...

    First Drive: 2014 Porsche 911 Targa
    Feeling That 1960s Vibe All Over Again 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 ...

    Long Term: 2014 Mazda6: Winter's End Update
    How I Used All The Grip The Six Could Offer (And Some Luck) 1397491020

    The Winter Without End is seemingly dead. Outside my office windows, my brown and yellow lawn is fully exposed to the increasingly powerful sunshine, the morning birdsong is louder than anything until the garbage trucks start rolling, and I'm seriously considering having the summer tires put back ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Mini John Cooper Works Countryman All4
    Turn A Cool Little CUV Into A Mess For Just $7,000 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
    Form, Function, And Frugality 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, ...

    McLaren's New Volume Seller Makes Evolution Look Sexy 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
    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 ...

    Is The Second Chapter Of Genesis A Revelation? 1396972620

    Hyundai grabbed our attention with its first-generation Genesis. Now, with this second-gen model, the company's job is to keep it. The 2015 Genesis, known internally as "DH," wisely follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, a model that showed the automaker's naked ambition, putting it on the ...

    First Drive: 2015 Cadillac Escalade
    Recapturing Its Star Power 1396886220

    Cadillac has been an interesting story in the auto industry over the past several years. Its comeback bid may be well over a decade old, but it's only recently that the Wreath and Crest has transformed from the auto industry's retirement home into its hot new thing. Today's Cadillac is a powerful ...

    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 ...

    Review: 2014 Chevrolet SS
    You Better Run, You Better Take Cover 1396540740

    Not everyone is an automobile enthusiast, but for the most part, those who possess valid driver's licenses are usually able to differentiate between a performance car and a luxury car. Furthermore, they are usually capable of telling approximately how old a car is based on its styling. But not ...

    Review: Dinan S3-R BMW 1M Coupe
    The Sublime Becomes Even More So 1396454220

    I nearly shed tears a few years ago upon learning that BMW was only planning to produce a very limited quantity of its then-new 2011 1 Series M Coupe. In simplest terms, the two-door was a 1 Series fitted with a modified version of the automaker's twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, and the ...

    Quick Spin: 2014 Audi S3 Cabriolet
    Subtracting Roof And Adding Style Equals A Pleasant, Pricey Diversion 1396368000

    Drivers are either droptop people or they're not. As most usually aren't – at least as far as the willingness to buy one is concerned – all convertibles tend to remain strictly niche cars. Thus, automakers must ask a noticeably higher price for them. The Audi S3 Cabriolet is about as ...

    First Ride: 2014 Ducati Monster 1200 S
    Better Riding Through Science 1396281420

    The Ducati Monster 1200 S has the power-to-weight ratio of a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse and the contact patch of a playing card. I'm elbows deep into leaning this pulsing, growling, screaming red animal across a one-lane hairpin on the edge of a volcanic island, when a sequence of ...

    Fine Art Doubling As An Open-Air Driving Machine 1395849420

    Recently, a fellow editor at AOL asked me to choose "the most beautiful car on the road" for a story he was preparing. I was allowed to choose any vehicle, at any price, as long as it was a model currently in production and offered for sale. The well-oiled gears in my head only needed to turn ...
