2015AudiQ3_ES

"The 2015 Audi Q3 looks like an Audi, drives like an Audi and has the real-deal Audi experience on the inside — and it drinks gas more like its larger Audi brethren," said Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek. Check out Bruzek's review for more.

2014 Mini Cooper S Versus 2015 Volkswagen GTI

Mini Cooper vs VW GTI

In our recent $30,000 Cheap Speed Challenge the Volkswagen GTI bested a field of eight contenders to take the win. However, the redesigned Mini Cooper was not part of that test. Things don't always work out the way you want, but getting a new Cooper S with a manual transmission at the same time as a new GTI with a manual transmission seemed like karma telling us we needed to go driving. OK, maybe it was just a really good excuse to get out of the office.

Both cars were similarly equipped to the gills with sticker prices totaling more than $33,000 including destination — not exactly "cheap." When all was said and done after a Chicago-area drive route traversing city, suburban and highway roads, the face-off was ridiculously close with the final scoring decided by one point overall.

Charger-lineup-wj

By William Jackson

Dodge shoots for a broad market with its redesigned Charger, aiming to be a practical family sedan that, if so desired, can have 707 horsepower under the hood. In doing so, Dodge has the unenviable job of making a mass-market car for enthusiasts.

Of course, it's one thing to stuff an enormous engine in a sedan and call it a family car, or to take a track monster and claim it can handle grocery runs. It's a whole other thing to actually pull it off in the real world. Early impressions indicate that Dodge largely succeeds.

Wife Tested: 2015 Subaru Outback

FallOutbacks

If there's one car that's found its way into our own garages — if not our hearts — as an editorial team, it's the Subaru Outback. At one point five editors have owned the all-wheel-drive wagon, including my family. We're on our second Outback, a 2010.

The 2010 is my wife's daily driver and shuttles her to work and our kids to school, soccer practice, gymnastics, doctor's appointments, you name it. We've also done many a road trip in the four-cylinder continuously variable automatic transmission combo. That's why I went through a somewhat unusual step of making sure that my wife could get behind the wheel of a 2015 Outback when one arrived at our Chicago headquarters for our editors to test..
