October 26, 2014

2014 Toyota Venza Limited AWD V-6

The 2014 Toyota Venza is a sometimes-overlooked five-passenger crossover that competes with the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano. We drove an all-wheel-drive V-6 model — was it any good?

Lincoln or Lexus? 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Review

April 25, 2014

Image

The 2014 Lincoln MKZ 2.0H Hybrid is one of just two cars in its class — premium hybrids under $50,000 — along with the Lexus ES 300h. The Lincoln is stunning, but does it have substance to back up its good looks?

A Slick Look: 2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T Review

March 14, 2014

2014-Hyundai-Sonata-20T--rear-three-quarters-view

The options list on some midsize sedans is impressive — on a $32,755 2014 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T, HID headlights, a navigation system, leather seats heated in front and back with a ventilated driver seat, and a dual-panel roof are all part of the package.

Just as the Buick Regal gets updated for the 2014 model year, the compact/midsize luxury sports sedan finds itself suddenly surrounded by new entries including the 2015 Audi A3 and 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA250. The Buick Regal, however, now has more standard horsepower than both of those cars, and…

Competence or Excellence? 2014 Acura RLX Review

February 28, 2014

http://image.motortrend.com/f/roadtests/sedans/1311_2014_acura_rlx_first_test/62541453/2014-Acura-RLX-P-AWS-front-end-in-motion.jpg

What’s a competent luxury sedan to do in a class of excellent choices? That’s the question I asked in a 2014 Acura RLX review. The luxury sedan battles other premium choices in the high $40,000 to low $60,000 price range — it’s a crowded field, with everyone from Lexus and Infiniti to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, and Audi competing.
