BMW’s new seven-seat off-roader will be built in the US and will be hitting the streets in 2016.

2014 Land Rover LR2

The Range Rover may be responsible for building the brand’s identity, but the it’s the LR2 that’s designed to meet the growing demand for small- to mid-size crossovers on the market today. It’s built with solid towing capability, good ground clearance and all-wheel drive, but it’s also more at home on the streets than its […]

2014 Nisssan Maxima

Despite Nissan’s push to consider the current-generation Maxima as a “4-Door Sports Car,” it’s proven to be more of a stylish, luxurious alternative larger mainstream sedans, rather than a dynamic one. Calling it a luxury sedan with a few sporty tendencies may be closer to the truth, as the Maxima chooses comfort of and refined […]

2014 Nissan Rogue

It’s been seven years since the Nissan Rogue could stake a claim as the newest crossover plying suburban cul-de-sacs. For 2014, the Rogue gets those bragging rights back. The 2014 Rogue arrives in November, priced just above $23,000, as a part of a new global family of Nissan and Renault vehicles. Around the world, our […]

2014 Kia Sorrento

The Kia Sorento hasn’t been on sale for all that long in its current form (since the 2011 model year). Still, for 2014, the Sorento is already up for some significant improvements. And it’s no minor refresh, either: Kia says that more than 80 percent of the parts in the new Sorento are either all-new […]

2014 Cadillac XTS Softer and Smoother

Cadillac is definitely back up to form. It’s producing some standout sport sedans, with its ATS and CTS models—and of course the top-performance CTS-V. Yet it’s worth remembering that those bold, brash sport sedans don’t exactly appeal to the heart of the luxury market. And for all the Cadillac who might shrug when you talk […]

2014 Honda Accord Sedan

Mid-size sedans sure aren’t just holding ground; they’ve been changing posthaste for the past several years, adopting racier designs, new fuel-efficient powertrains, and all sorts of technological innovations, some of which were reserved for luxury cars very recently. And if we could narrow our choices down to s single model that finds the heart of […]

2014 Chrysler 200: Review

The Chrysler 200 (formerly called the Chrysler Sebring) sedan and convertible were revamped in 2011, and it wasn’t a moment too soon. The Sebring had been received poorly, for inexpensive interiors and overwrought sheetmetal, not to mention a general lack of refinement. With the 200, Chrysler corrected course, but only brought its mid-sizer up to […]

2014: Acura RDX – Crossover to Genius

For style-conscious families who don’t want such a large utility vehicle but also don’t want to make too many compromises in features, safety, or performance, the Acura RDX is one of the better picks. Already into its second year since a complete redesign, the RDX last year found—compared to the first-generation RDX that preceded it—a […]

2013 Nissan Maxima

Nissan reclaimed the “4-Door Sports Car” catch-phrase with the current generation of the Maxima, but with so many true sport sedans available in 2013, it’s proved to be a bit of a stretch. In truth, the front-wheel-drive Maxima does remain a solid choice for those who want a little more of a sporty edge, and […]
