2015 Toyota Camry XLE first drive review: Resuited

This year should have had a mild facelift of the Toyota Camry. The current generation debuted in 2012, so for 2015—three years later—the Camry should be up for a for a new front and rear cap, perhaps a new dash and a few other running changes. But not this. The 2015 has a new body, […]

2015 Toyota Sienna SE Premium first drive review: True to the concept

2015 Toyota Sienna SE Premium first drive review: True to the concept

The Toyota Sienna is one of a decreasing number of minivans that has stayed true to the original concept. It seats up to eight in relative comfort, doubles as a stuff hauler, and can fit most garages. And even Mom can drive it. (That’s a joke, folks, based on the popular designation of the minivan […]

2014 Fiat 500 1957 Edition Review: The fun, fabulous ’50s are back!

2014 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye review: Drop the ‘e’ and nobody gets hurt

2014 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye review: Drop the ‘e’ and nobody gets hurt

Can we please drop the “e”? We know that Dodge is hyping its heritage with the Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger, and that heritage dating to the Sixties includes the cloying use of the “European”—or is it that the Olde English—way to spell “rally.” But no, it really isn’t. So can’t we, while keeping the […]

2015 Volkswagen CC 2.0T Sport first drive review: For what it is

2015 Volkswagen CC 2.0T Sport first drive review: For what it is

It’s important from the start to understand exactly what the Volkswagen CC is…and isn’t. It isn’t a Passat. It isn’t a Jetta either. Although a four-door, the VW CC isn’t a straightforward sedan like the Passat or Jetta, the two models that make up the overwhelming percentage of Volkswagens sold in the U.S. It is, […]

2015 Kia Sedona first drive: For people who need more room for their stuff rather than their egos

2015 Kia Sedona first drive: For people who need more room for their stuff rather than their egos

 Yes, it’s true. The people-mover portion of the automotive market is one of the few moving down the ladder instead of up. The minivan segment has been seriously maligned with a case of “unhipness,” and families jumped ship as fast as the captain on the Titanic when the next cool thing (crossovers) came along. The […]

2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack review: Packing 6.4 liters of scat*

2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack review: Packing 6.4 liters of scat*

The 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is getting all the press, and at 707 horsepower, it certainly deserves a paragraph or two. But Dodge won’t sell very many of those. More significant to the man on the street, we’ll posit, is the 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack. At only 485 horsepower, it’s much more practical. Riiiiight. […]
