2015 BMW 428 Gran Coupe

"Now the fifth (!) body style in the growing 3/4 Series family, the 2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe hatchback may be the best four-door of the bunch."

David Thomas Managing Editor

2015 Hyundai Santa Fe

"I've spent 11 years on a quest for the quintessential family car, and while that perfect blend of family-friendly features still eludes me, the 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe comes darn close."

Kristin Varela Senior Editor

2016 Acura ILX

"The restyled 2016 Acura ILX is a competent, fun-driving car in the entry-level compact luxury field, but it doesn't live up to some luxury-class expectations."

Bill Jackson Assistant Managing Editor

2016 FIAT 500X

"With an upscale cabin, surefooted handling and a bunch of features packed into a smallish, stylish wrapper, the all-new 2016 Fiat 500X subcompact SUV proves downsizing doesn't have to mean settling."

David Thomas Managing Editor

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

"The new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado may be smaller than a full-size pickup, but it's no small truck; it provides much of the style, features and capabilities of its bigger brothers for much less money."

Aaron D. Bragman Detroit Bureau Chief

2015 Audi S3

"Audi's 2015 S3 spices up the A3 subcompact sedan with a healthy dose of performance, but I wanted more thrills and fewer frills for its nearly $50,000 as-tested price."

Joe Bruzek Road Test Editor

2016 Kia Sorento

"The 2016 Kia Sorento is an all-star family-hauler with standout styling and a comfortable, feature-filled cabin; pleasant road manners are marred by minor imperfections."

Jennifer Geiger Assistant Managing Editor

2016 Ford Explorer

"The 2016 Ford Explorer is pleasant to drive and offers an improved interior and engine option, but getting the most out of Ford's improvements will cost you."

Bill Jackson Assistant Managing Editor

2016 Nissan Maxima

"The redesigned 2016 Nissan Maxima is a powerful, good-handling sedan that stays true to the nameplate's performance-oriented heritage and features an upscale interior that befits its price."

Mike Hanley Senior Editor

2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S

"Fast, gorgeous and more affordable than its predecessor, the new Mercedes-AMG GT S may just be the best-driving car the automaker has ever made."

Aaron D. Bragman Detroit Bureau Chief

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."
