2017 Lincoln MKZ Revealed: Less Ford-like  Nov 18th, 2015 
Lincoln’s slow return to building genuine luxury cars might finally be picking up speed. While the Continental concept laid out the strategy at the New York auto show, the MKZ debuting at the Los Angeles auto show is the initial play. When it goes on sale in the summer of 2016, the 2017 Lincoln MKZ […] 
 
 
U.S.-Spec 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Details Released  Nov 18th, 2015 
“I am Quadrifoglio! I need turbos for my six-hole!” We like to image an anthropomorphic Giulia, a Metallica t-shirt pulled up over its cabin, front wheel-arms pointing skyward, reared up on its haunches like some great Rothian beast. The highest-performing variant of Alfa Romeo’s new sedan is a hot rod of sorts, after all, even […]

2016 Lamborghini Huracán LP580-2: The 2WD Huracán Arrives!  Nov 17th, 2015 
Six years ago, Lamborghini put a stripe on a special-edition Gallardo and named it in honor of Valentino Balboni, the company’s longtime test driver. While toiling away over the sticker package, Lambo’s engineers also yanked the front differential and slightly detuned the car, creating the rear-wheel-drive Gallardo LP550-2. Here, finally, was a machine that put […] 
 
 
2016 Mazda 3 2.0L Manual Sedan Test: Its DNA Is Unmistakable  Nov 17th, 2015 
Many carmakers are fond of employing the term “DNA” in describing their vehicle lineups, but few have as much product justification for doing so as Mazda, and fewer still exhibit as much restraint. We hear a lot about zoom-zoom, of course, but that, too, seems justified. From top to bottom, Mazda’s offerings are uniquely uniform […]

Jean Genie: Volkswagen Introduces Beetle Convertible Denim  Nov 17th, 2015 
Earlier this year, when Volkswagen trotted out its Beetle Denim concept at the New York Auto Show, we lamented that VW hadn’t wholly resurrected the dippier “Jeans” trim from the 1970s. Wolfsburg, undoubtedly in a somber mood these days, ignored our suggestion. On the upside, those of you who worship at the altar of Saint […]

2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune: A Bit of Baja for the Bug  Nov 17th, 2015 
Even without four-wheel drive, the rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive original Volkswagen Beetle made a credible off-roader—so much so that there was a whole class for modified Beetles in the Baja 1000. And Baja-style Bugs were a popular modification. With their bumpers removed, fenders shortened, engine exposed, and beefier wheels fitted, they managed to look mean and purposeful at […] 
 
 
Gone Plaid: Lotus Elise Sport, Sport 220 Lose Weight, Add Tartan Seats  Nov 17th, 2015 
We’re at least four years out until the Lotus Elise returns to America, and yet we’re still enamored with this British bantamweight roadster. The reason this time? Plaid, plaid, and more delicious, 1970s-style plaid. The Elise Sport and Sport 220 are the new names for the previous base and S models. Tartan cloth inserts on […]

Never a Doubt: GMC Finally Releases the Canyon Denali We’ve Been Expecting  Nov 17th, 2015 
As we’ve suspected pretty much since GMC reintroduced its Canyon mid-size pickup for 2015, there will be an upscale Denali trim level, and it’s coming late next year as a 2017 model. GMC has finally revealed the Canyon Denali, and it traces the now-familiar (and 17 years old!) luxe Denali theme perfectly. The Denali package includes the […] 
 
 
2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate: The Pinnacle of the Pickup Pinnacle  Nov 17th, 2015 
The Denali name already carries with it the implied top-dogness you’d expect being derived from the name of the highest mountain peak in the United States. GMC, though, describes the new-for-2016 Sierra 1500 Denali Ultimate as the “pinnacle of premium.” Technically, Denali is the peak—maybe the Denali Ultimate the lookout post perched atop that peak?

Tech Takeover: 2017 Ford Escape Cranks Up the Technology, Gets New Engine  Nov 17th, 2015 
The formula for the compact crossover is not a complicated one: Combine space and utility with a modicum off-road capability and an elevated seating position. Because of this, players in the white-hot segment must work extra hard to stand out from the bunch. To make a mark with the 2017 Escape, Ford’s strategy is to […]

What’s Your State Car? These Are the Unofficial Cars for Each of the 50 States  Nov 16th, 2015 
If you were to take a list of the most popular cars in each state in the U.S., it’d be a pretty predictable list. The Ford F-150 would feature prominently, along with the Chevy Silverado, and of course the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. But we were curious: What car is the most overrepresented […]

Fine Time: Bentley Bentayga First Edition Includes Breitling Watch  Nov 16th, 2015 
Buyers of Toyota Camrys and Ford Explorers generally don’t give a hoot about special editions of their automobiles, but rich folks—and Miata fans—they love ‘em. For proof, look no further than all these Neiman Marcus special editions cranked out over the last few years. Alas, the new Bentley Bentayga isn’t waiting to appear in some […]

Kia Niro: A Prius-Like Stand-alone Hybrid That’s Also a Crossover  Nov 16th, 2015 
Kia has announced it is adding a stand-alone hybrid model to its fleet, although with a twist. Whereas the most widely known dedicated hybrid on the market, the Toyota Prius, is a tadpole-shaped car, the Kia will be a crossover. And it will have a cool name—at least relative to Prius—”Niro.” More than a new […]

Kia is recalling 256,459 Soul hatchbacks in the U.S. for steering loss, according to filings with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. On 2014-2016 Soul and Soul EV models, the pinion gear can separate from the steering assembly due to a poor adhesive applied to the pinion plug. Kia said it was aware of at […] 
 
 
2016 Nissan Titan XD Tested!  Nov 15th, 2015 
Surprisingly, the Nissan Titan has been in constant production since the 2004 model year. It’s the pickup market’s back marker; the 12,527 Titans sold in 2014 about equals how many F-series Ford produces every five days. No one thinks about it, no one talks about it, and few outside of its Canton, Mississippi, assembly plant would […]

Green-Flagged: Nürburgring Gets Approval to End Speed Restrictions  Nov 13th, 2015 
The idea of a racetrack with speed limits seems deeply strange, like a shooting range with blanks. But that’s been the case at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife for several months, after limits were put in place following a fatal crash in March. But they won’t be around for much longer, with the track’s owners announcing […] 
 
 
2016 BMW 650i Tested: It’s in a Class of One  Nov 13th, 2015 
By traditional size and body-style classification, the BMW 6-series is now an outlier—it’s bigger than all the two-door luxury coupes, save the even larger, more expensive S-class coupe from Mercedes-Benz. In the mid-size luxury segment, sales instead tilt toward fast-roofed four-doors exemplified by the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Audi A7—even within the 6-series range, the […]

2016 Ferrari F12tdf Driven! In Order to Create, They First Had to Destroy  Nov 13th, 2015 
To build its latest red-blooded creation, Ferrari first ruined a perfectly good car. In transforming the sure-footed F12berlinetta grand tourer into the fast-and-loose, apex-hounding F12tdf, Ferrari engineers deconstructed the stability that’s inherent in the F12’s long wheelbase, its substantial weight, and its high polar moment of inertia relative to mid-engined cars. The front tires grew […] 
 
 
Everything You Need to Know About the VW Diesel Emissions Scandal  Nov 13th, 2015 
General Motors and Toyota had their massive scandals. Now it’s Volkswagen’s turn.

After years of promoting “Clean Diesel” as an alternative to hybrid and electric vehicles—the company even marched on Washington with a squadron […] 
 
 
2017 Jaguar XE Will Offer a Manual Transmission in the U.S.  Nov 13th, 2015 
With growing despair, we are watching the exodus of the manual transmission from some of our favorite cars.

Cop Stops Google Self-Driving Car—for Driving too Slow  Nov 13th, 2015

Audi’s super wagon—at least in America, where we’re denied the RS6 Avant—is the all-new 2017 Q7. This seven-passenger SUV is lighter, lower, and generally more wagon-like than the first-generation car. It’s also more expensive: Q7 prices are up 13 percent from 2015 (Audi skipped the 2016 model year), now starting at $55,750 for a base […]

If the Mini Cooper S Hardtop 4 Door isn’t possessed of quite enough zoot for you, BMW’s cutesy unit is now offering the Carbon Edition. It’s not quite as potent as the two-door John Cooper Works Hardtop, suggesting that one must sacrifice a modicum of practicality for maximum thrill. Offering 208 horsepower courtesy of the […]

Peugeot Takes To the Skies, Helps Design New Airbus Helicopter  Nov 12th, 2015 
  Fans of stereotypes will likely accept that the French are good at some things: seduction, the non-verbal expression of disdain, and the manufacture of both fine wine and stinky cheeses are all among the less-offensive Gallic archetypes. But think of France and you’re probably not thinking about the design and manufacture of helicopters. Yet […]

BMW might have the longest history of sporty luxury sedans, and Mercedes-AMG might make the most powerful one—in the form of the insanely expensive S65 AMG—but as far as the overall package is concerned, a new player from Audi warrants a close look. Ingolstadt is out to impress with the new S8 Plus, the most […]

Let’s imagine a parallel universe, a réalité alternative where France’s automakers had succeeded in launching themselves in the U.S. and Germany’s had failed.

Wild though they are, Lamborghini’s current crop of four-wheeled raging bulls are mannerly by comparison to their cantankerous predecessors. And alas, updates to the 2016 Huracán suggest that they’ll be even more genteel henceforth. While the rip-snortin’ 602-hp V-10 adds no more power for 2016, it does get off-throttle cylinder deactivation to save fuel—as if […]

Difficult as it is to comprehend, some people believe the twin-turbocharged, V-12–powered Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG doesn’t have enough gristle. We know, right?
