The 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT Review: The car market is packed with compact sedans that deliver more than basic transportation. The Hyundai Elantra, which when rated on interior capacity, actually sneaks into the midsize category, is one of the best. However, for more action and function, try the Elantra GT Edition. The GT gets a tauter suspension than ordinary Elantras, and the Style Package, for only $1,975, tightens it up a bit more. You also get meatier tires on new 17-inch rims, up from the standard sized 16’s too.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 Grand Touring AWD Review: Subcompact crossover vehicles are cropping up everywhere this year, including one that puts Mazda’s unmistakably fun-to-drive spin on the category. It’s called the CX-3, and it is, by a long shot, the most engaging car to drive in this burgeoning class. While competitors all have their own strong points, like the cute Italian styling on the Fiat 500X, the comfy highway ride of the Chevrolet Trax or the logical, solid cabin in the Honda HR-V, none of them are the kinds of cars an enthusiast driver could take seriously.

The 2016 VW CC Review: The CC is a mystery car. Americans are very familiar with the compact Jetta and the midsize Passat, but the CC slips between them. It’s a sportier ride, made in Europe, different from the designed-for-America other two.

The 2016 Lexus RC 200t Review: If you think of Lexus vehicles as big sedans or medium-size crossover SUVs, it’s understandable. But Lexus delivered a knockout coupe last year, the RC line. Low, sensuous, and energetic, it may change a lot of minds.

The 2016 Audi A3 Review: The A4 has long been Audi’s bread-and-butter model. The A3 was a smaller wagon configuration, directed at a different buyer. The A4 stretches nearly 10 inches longer on a nearly seven-inch-longer wheelbase. That does give rear passengers in the A4 more than three inches of greater legroom. But in 2015, the A3 was recast as a sedan or a convertible, offered with three engine choices and option packages to load it up to your specifications. Now for 2016, the A3 five-door version returned as the E-tron Sportback, a gasoline / electric hybrid.

The 2016 Scion iM Review: Scion, Toyota’s youth brand, began life early in the last decade. The huge Japanese company was selling lots of cars, but had concerns that young, first-time buyers were opting for other brands. The answer? Import a few quirky models from Japan under a new brand and change the buying experience. No annoying salesman when you walk in the door. Do your research online. Show you’re cool by driving an inexpensive, offbeat model like the original xB, a rolling statement of independence from tradition.

The 2015 Lexus IS 350 Review: The IS is Lexus answer to the BMW 3 Series, along with other contenders in the compact luxury sports sedan field. It flaunts dramatic styling, with the official Lexus spindle grille up front. This is as dramatic and imposing as the 1958 Edsel’s vertical slit must have seemed, and it’s more stunning than beautiful. It juts out defiantly, and the rest of the car is hardly a shrinking violet either.

The 2015 Audi A3 Review: Luxury brands build their reputations around their biggest and most expensive cars, which is why vehicles like this, the new, compact A3 from Audi, can sometimes be disappointing.

The 2014 Chrysler 300S Review: American luxury cars have traditionally been designed to deliver three things: big size, big power and big style.

The 2013 Dodge Charger R/T Review: When I think of an American muscle car, I always imagine a stripped-down, bare-bones, 1960s-style coupe with nothing but four wheels and a big ol’ engine. This week, though, I’ve been driving the Dodge Charger, a muscle car that shatters those stereotypes. Not only does it have four doors, making it the last of the V8-powered spacious, American sedans that once packed our nation’s highways, that my test car came loaded with more luxury gadgets than an Apple Store.

The 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Review: The Jetta has always been kind of a cool car to drive and own. In a sea of Hondas and Toyotas, it delivers German engineering and a sportier feel. So, when I read about the new Jetta four-door sedan I was a little concerned. There were comments in the automotive press about "cheaper plastic" in the interior and the external design language seemed a little simplified. But before long, new Jettas started appearing everywhere I looked. As it turns out, the new Jetta is a success.

Dodge Charger SRT8 Review: Back in the 1960s, muscle cars defined America's automotive scene. These were big, heavy, bombastic cars that had loud paint schemes and even louder engines that were designed more for drag racing than mere transportation. Then the energy crisis of the 1970s killed the muscle car, but not for good.
