"Jeep purists might smirk, thinking the Renegade has a fitting name, but this subcompact SUV is no Benedict Arnold: It delivers big-time off-road performance in Trailhawk form without sacrificing on-road driving refinement," says Cars.com reviewer Mike Hanley.

"With its 2015 Trax, Chevrolet has offered up a tiny SUV with exceptional visibility, good interior room and a surprisingly large cargo area, but pokey acceleration — especially with optional all-wheel drive," says Cars.com reviewer Bill Jackson.

2015 Chrysler 300: First Drive

CH015_137THL

Austin is weird. In fact, the city hangs its hat on that distinction. A small patch of donkey blue wedged in a sea of elephant red, the liberal city prides itself on its odd-man-out political status and singular strangeness. I visited the Texas city to drive the updated Chrysler 300, and the sedan is anything but strange.

The 2015 Chrysler 300's attention-grabbing styling, elegant interior and composed road manners convey an overall classiness that rivals other large sedans.

Light exterior and interior styling updates, a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with rotary dial and additional safety features highlight the changes for 2015. The 300 has always made a splash visually, and the new model's exaggerated front-end proportions ensure it will continue to be a statement-maker for the brand. Its signature gaping grille is even larger this year — pumped up by 33 percent — and inside the mesh grille floats Chrysler's winged badge.

The 300 Limited, 300C, 300S and 300C Platinum trims are available for 2015; I tested a rear-wheel-drive Limited trim with the V-6; Chrysler expects around 40 percent of buyers to opt for this entry model.

2015 Nissan Altima Review

Altima

"In one of the most competitive classes in the car market, the generally capable 2015 Nissan Altima is hamstrung by subpar drivability — an unrefined transmission and associated engine noise," says Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder.

2015 Nissan Murano First Drive

2015 Nissan Murano

Nissan has a specific buyer in mind for its redesigned Murano. The midsize SUV has shed weight and increased fuel economy, but it's the upscale interior and comfortable ride that will woo and wow shoppers, whether they're the ideal empty-nester Nissan is aiming at or not.

I drove a variety of trim levels through Northern California wine country last week in torrential rains and found the Murano to be a terrific all-around vehicle that has eye-grabbing looks to spare. But the previous generation's performance-focused spirit is no longer present.
