America's Ford hot hatch dreams are ending, but not Europe's

The driving style required to get the most out of a Fiesta ST requires braking late into the corner to turn the car on its nose. Which sounds fun until you start dwelling on the potential consequences of running out of hairpin to play on, there being little more than a curb-height wall between you and oblivion. The ability not to worry about that is what separates rally champions such as Ogier from the rest of us, but the ST successfully offers a sense of that driving style to those with average

The everyman’s voltaic slingshot is also a rolling critique of Musk's vision

When the Tesla Model 3 appeared in production form last summer, the hype was already at a fever pitch after months — years, even — of anticipation. With hundreds of thousands of reservations already on the books, it appeared this could be the car that transforms Tesla from a startup to a true competitor.

It does almost everything well

Audi recently expanded its A4/A5 lineup with the A5 Sportback, continuing the trend of German automakers adding coupe-like four-door cars, and also finally giving the A7 a little brother. And of course because the traditional coupe and sedan versions have S variants, Audi created an S5 Sportback.

That's why it was a bit of surprise when Volkswagen showed a concept for a "GT" version that looked like a big GTI, complete with black grille and red highlights, lower ride height and big wheels. It was even more surprising that the car, which VW said was developed by folks at the company's Tennessee facility playing around with ideas for what a Passat could be, became a pr

We drove Infiniti's beefiest SUV

When it comes to body-on-frame full-size SUVs, it seems every automaker has the same strategy. Offer one version as a more affordable, workman-like model, and another one as the plush luxury model. Ford has the Expedition and the Navigator, Toyota has the Land Cruiser and the LX 570, GM has the Tahoe and the Escalade. GM even has the Yukon in normal and Denali models. Over at Nissan, the pairing is the Nissan Aramada and the Infiniti QX80. We recently reviewed the Nissan version, and we just had

These two crossovers provide room to roam

There are very few things in this word that I enjoy more than a road trip through the mountains, so I didn't hesitate when Volkswagen invited us to take their newest SUVs, the Tiguan and Atlas, on a road trip through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park.
