2017 Ford Fusion

"The refreshed 2017 Ford Fusion is improved in key areas, including a better multimedia system, updated safety technology and driver aids that enhance the car's satisfying cabin and driving experience."

Brian Wong L.A. Bureau Chief

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

"The new Pacifica is sleek, stylish and even more tailored to families with additional room and innovative comfort and convenience features."

Jennifer Geiger Assistant Managing Editor

2017 Cadillac XT5

"The 2017 Cadillac XT5 excels at offering a luxurious experience that should tempt midsize luxury SUV shoppers and worry its competitors."

Bill Jackson Assistant Managing Editor

2017 Ford Escape

"The updated 2017 Ford Escape's improvements are minor if you didn't have the Escape on your consideration list, these won't put it there but this compact SUV is easier to live with daily."

Joe Bruzek Senior Road Test Editor

2016 Chevrolet Colorado

"With the addition of the powerful, efficient, beautifully integrated Duramax diesel powertrain, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado becomes quite possibly the world's perfect pickup truck."

Aaron D. Bragman Detroit Bureau Chief

2017 Audi A4

"The Audi A4's 2017 redesign looks subtle at first glance. But the devil is in the details, and those details make this Audi a strong choice in a crowded class."

Kelsey Mays Senior Editor

2017 Bentley Bentayga

"The new 2017 Bentley Bentayga is a multitalented ultraluxury SUV that's just as at ease tiptoeing down steep off-road descents as it is hustling around a racetrack."

Mike Hanley Senior Editor

2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid

"The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid delivers the impressive fuel economy of a hybrid without the eccentric styling and quirky road manners many are known for."

Jennifer Geiger Assistant Managing Editor

2016 Mazda CX-9

"The 2016 Mazda CX-9 is one of the best-driving SUVs I've ever experienced. Families are likely to also appreciate the improved interior and added features, like rear USB ports, but a cumbersome multimedia system threatens to end all the fun."

Brian Wong L.A. Bureau Chief

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350

"Top to bottom, the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 features the right performance-minded hardware to live up to its claim as the most track-capable Mustang that Ford's ever built."

Joe Bruzek Senior Road Test Editor

2011 Chrysler 300

"More than simply a step in the right direction for the automaker, the 300 presents a compelling choice for anyone shopping full-size cars or entry-level luxury models."

Kelsey Mays Reviewer

2011 Dodge Charger

"The Charger has always been an aggressive-looking car, but the redesigned 2011 model raises the sedan's meanness factor."

Mike Hanley Reviewer

2011 Ford Mustang

"This car is a blast."

Joe Wiesenfelder Executive Editor

2012 Honda Civic

"With 31 pounds-feet more torque than the old 2.0-liter Si, there's enough oomph to get moving in 6th gear above 45 mph or so, no downshifts needed."

Kelsey Mays Reviewer

2009 Hyundai Genesis

"The Genesis navigates tight corners like a much smaller car - body roll is well checked and the balanced chassis encourages you to push it harder."

Mike Hanley Reviewer

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

"The new four-wheel independent suspension soaks up bumps easily without getting flustered like a traditional SUV can, and it corners confidently without any of the top-heavy motions normally associated with SUVs."

Mike Hanley Reviewer

2009 Lexus RX 350

"Now going on its 11th model year, the RX is one of the most fuel-efficient crossovers available today."

Mike Hanley Reviewer

2010 Nissan Maxima

"What I loved most, though - besides the sound of the V-6 from the huge dual exhaust tips - was the Maxima's handling."

David Thomas Managing Editor

2011 Toyota Camry

"The Toyota Camry is spacious, comfortable, packs a powerful V-6 and a silky smooth transmission."

David Thomas Managing Editor

2009 Volkswagen Tiguan

"The Tiguan begs to be driven quickly and tossed about, and thanks to its relatively low center of gravity, good roadholding and a standard electronic stability system, that's not the irresponsible act it would be in many SUVs."
