  • Porsche Cayman S goes beyond beautiful

    Porsche Cayman S goes beyond beautiful
    I'm never prepared for beauty. My mind can't retain its details, so the full impact surprises me every time I see a perfect sunset, Van Gogh's "Cafe Terrace at Night," or Ingrid Bergman in "Casablanca." The 2014 Porsche Cayman S packs that sort of visual...
  • ActiveHybrid 3: BMW's grand experiment

    ActiveHybrid 3: BMW's grand experiment
    The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 sport sedan is a little more powerful, a little faster, and a little more fuel-efficient than its nonhybrid cousin, the 335i. It also weighs 231 pounds more and costs about $6,500 more. Is it worth it? It's a close call. The...
  • Lincoln MKZ hybrid achieves balance of features, price

    Lincoln MKZ hybrid achieves balance of features, price
    Call me Goldilocks. Keep your hands to yourself, sailor. This ain't Fleet Week. It's the week I drove the 2013 Lincoln MKZ hybrid luxury sedan. The MKZ hybrid's fuel economy, technology, features and price are just right. It's the car to beat for...
  • Fiat puts a smile on 500L's face, and yours, too

    Fiat puts a smile on 500L's face, and yours, too
    Fiat's a newcomer to the U.S., but the Italian automaker has been doing several things well since it was founded 114 years ago: Cramming lots of interior space into tiny cars. Wringing spirited performance from small engines. Imbuing affordable...
  • GM's new vehicles dominate short list of award contenders

    GM's new vehicles dominate short list of award contenders
    It's early October, but that's not too soon to say this has been a very good year for General Motors. All six of the new vehicles GM has introduced so far in 2013 made the short list of contenders for the 2014 North American Car and Truck/Utility Awards....
  • CTS sedan lifts Cadillac to new level

    CTS sedan lifts Cadillac to new level
    Cadillac reaches new heights with the 2014 Cadillac CTS luxury sedan. The 2014 CTS is the third generation of the sport sedan that began Cadillac's renaissance. It has grown longer and more expensive to compete with midsize luxury sedans like the Audi...
  • Corolla tries to catch up with younger buyers

    Corolla tries to catch up with younger buyers
    Toyota has sold 40 million Corollas, but the company is neither satisfied nor comfortable. Looking over its shoulder at stylish challengers like the Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra and Ford Focus, Toyota set out to broaden the Corolla's appeal for 2014. The...
  • Ford Fiesta ST takes the pole among sporty subcompacts

    Ford Fiesta ST takes the pole among sporty subcompacts
    With any luck, the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST performance subcompact will start a race. Not a street race. That would be wrong, as the Barenaked Ladies might admonish with utmost seriousness. I'm hoping for a race among other automakers to develop their own fast...
  • Lexus IS 250 F Sport is prettier than it is powerful

    Lexus IS 250 F Sport is prettier than it is powerful
    For Halloween this year, I'm going as a 2014 Lexus IS 250 F Sport AWD. The new sedan looks fast and powerful, but the sporty costume makes promises its drivetrain can't keep. The all-wheel drive IS 250 F Sport that I tested had rakish styling and...
  • Chevy Corvette has major advantages over Chrysler's Viper

    Chevy Corvette has major advantages over Chrysler's Viper
    It's no shock that sales of Chrysler's new Viper are a fraction of Chevrolet Corvette's. The differences between Viper and 'Vette are profound, and they say a lot about conditions at Chrysler and General Motors when the companies developed America's top...
  • Edmunds.com tweaks its car-shopping website

    Edmunds.com tweaks its car-shopping website
    Edmunds.com, a website popular with car shoppers, is preparing a new home page and layout. I was recently directed to the site as a randomly chosen test subject. I hated it. Unlike most guinea pigs, though, I have the number for Edmunds' chief of...
