MW's new 4-series is not merely a facelift, it's a whole new car - save for the engine.  That said, few cars have been as anticipated as 4-series and I've already had the luxury of driving i...

porting enough room to accommodate the nuclear family, along with a number of features that generally cost thousands more than other car brands, the Kia Sorento might be one of the most sens...

Audi R8 V10 Plus Review: the Intersection of Value and Insane (video)

I
'm officially ruined.  No car will ever be the same after the Audi R8.  But not just any R8.  The R8 V10 - wait for it - Plus.  That Plus stands for an extra 25hp, extra weight savings (130l...

2014 CTS First Drive Impressions: Not Your Grand Dad’s Cadillac

L
isten.  Let's not quibble about it. Cadillac is your Dad's, or perhaps even your Grand Dad's brand.  But before you start nodding your head, and scoffing down another bag of Doritos, conside...

he day I buy a sedan is the day I bring life into this world.  Until then you'll find me behind the wheel of a coupe.  Visually I find 2-door cars more appealing.  But I'm no fool.  Coupes a...

Chevy Spark EV First Drive: the Affordable Electric Car

The consensus has long been that you'll need some serious greenbacks in the proverbial coffers if you want an electric vehicle.  Which is to say few of the electric vehicles today are a practical investment for the average pers...

aturally aspirated V8s are a dying breed.  And while I'm a proponent for improved fuel economy and emission mandates, they're being supplanted by less potent, more fuel efficient turbo boost...

2013 Audi S7 Review: an Altered Beast

The last three cars that I've reviewed have all been afforded over 400hp.  This includes the RS5 (450hp), the BMW 650i GC (445hp) and now the Audi S7 (420hp).  It's a dizzying amount of horsepower, even for a car that weighs 45...

2013 Nissan Altima Review

The Nissan Altima is currently in its fifth generation, and by most accounts its most stylish. Gone is the largely boxy build, replaced by a sleeker, slender body, or so it would appear.  In fact, the 2013 Nissan Altima is bigg...

2013 Jaguar XF 2.0 Review

Despite Jaguar's rich history, the brand might be best known for its portrayal in the film "Austin Powers".  It may not be the most flattering of associations, but it's one that I heard again and again when I told people that I...
