    2013 Buick Verano: Turbo adds punch to compact sedan
    The  2013 Buick Verano turbo marks the latest step in Buick's journey from a hopelessly dull brand into one that consistently delivers unexpected fun, features and value. The turbo adds muscle to the likable but leisurely Verano compact sedan. With...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 2013 Infiniti JX tones down attitude

    2013 Infiniti JX tones down attitude
    Infiniti chose an odd time to go mainstream. The luxury brand made a name for itself with quirky crossovers like the predatory FX, but its new * * * 2013 JX 35 sticks to the straight and narrow like a plough horse in a field. The seven-passenger family...
  • 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...
  • Can MKZ carry Lincoln luxury relaunch?

    Can MKZ carry Lincoln luxury relaunch?
    It's time for Lincoln to stand and deliver. Ford sold off a stable of European luxury nameplates -- Aston Martin and Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo -- to clear the field for its revamped luxury brand, which it rechristened Lincoln Motor Co. in December....
  • 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...
  • 2013 Buick Encore: Superb small SUV

     2013 Buick Encore: Superb small SUV
    Buick may have the New Year's first hit on its hands with the   2013 Encore, a mini-crossover that packs an extra-large serving of goodness into a pint-sized package. Almost 20 inches shorter than a Chevrolet Equinox, the Encore is an early entrant into...
  • 'Vette, Mustang, Cherokee fans, stop complaining already

    'Vette, Mustang, Cherokee fans, stop complaining already
    As new versions of the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang and Jeep Cherokee draw near, I've got a request for the vehicles' purists: Stop complaining that they're different from the old cars you revere. Close your eyes, count to 10, and get back to me after...
  • Range Rover sets the off-road bar high

    Range Rover sets the off-road bar high
    Land Rover rewrote the book on luxury SUVs when it introduced the fuel-efficient Range Rover Evoque a couple of years ago, but the British luxury-SUV specialist returns to its familiar formula with the 2013 Range Rover. The new SUV checks off all the...
  • Small flaws mar Subaru Forester

    Small flaws mar Subaru Forester
    There's a difference between data and information. Information has context and relevance. It's the building block of knowledge. Data can be trivial: meaningless facts. How many rivets are there in the Eiffel Tower? I don't know, and I don't care unless...
