2015 Nissan GT-R Review

2015NissanGT-R

"The 2015 Nissan GT-R is the Japanese equivalent of a Dodge Viper: loud, crazy and faster than hell, yet flawed in unique ways," said Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman. Check out Bragman's review for more.

2015 Honda CR-V First Drive

2015HondaCRVLead

Technically, Honda calls the CR-V's updates for the new model year a "minor model change," or a refresh in our own parlance, but the changes run much deeper than a standard refresh. A more detailed list of changes can be found in our First Look of the 2015, but in brief include a new power train, new top-of-the-line Touring trim level and the debut of new safety technology for any Honda model.

There was also the addition of many standard features across all trim levels, with only an approximate $200 increase in starting price in the lower trim levels. We spent our drive through Orange County, Calif., however, in the new, line-topping Touring trim models with pretty much every option box checked including all-wheel drive.

Five Things That Might Make You Spend $40K on a Kia Sedona Minivan

Sedona5things1

Despite Kia's recent entrance into the uber-lux car segment with the 2015 K900, a full-size sedan, many of us may still think of Kia as a budget brand. With the launch of the reinvented 2015 Kia Sedona, some families may pause before spending around $40,000 for the fully loaded minivan, which you have to do to get all the nifty features. This puts the Sedona in the same price range as the bulk its competitors; read, no major cost savings here. So why should a family consider springing for the rather pricey Kia minivan? I spent some time with the new Kia in and around Laguna Beach, Calif., at a drive event and found five reasons.

2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Review

2015AlfaRomeo4C

"A paradox of modern and historical sports-car technology — and driving characteristics — the beautiful 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is thoroughly, unrelentingly, a machine. For that you may love it or hate it," said Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder. Check out the rest of his review.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class: First Drive

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class

As luxury brands wage a battle royale for mini-SUV shoppers, Mercedes-Benz offers a welterweight fighter in the new GLA-Class. It has more practicality than its profile — a butched-up hatchback — suggests, and the turbocharged-to-the-hilt GLA45 AMG version packs rowdy, gleeful performance. Unfortunately, this SUV, if you want to call it that, loses its shine as a daily driver.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class combines practicality and premium value with performance that ranges from capable to superlative, but you'll want to weigh that against its unforgiving ride quality and poor sight lines.

2014 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid Review

2014VolkswagenTouaregHybrid

"The Touareg has improved drastically over the years, and VW's even jumped onto the 'green' bandwagon by adding a Touareg Hybrid to the mix. Unfortunately, the 2014 VW Touareg Hybrid is an expensive SUV proposition without a major return on your hybrid investment in terms of fuel economy," said Cars.com reviewer Kristin Varela. Check out Varela's review for more.

2015 Ford Mustang: First Drive

Mustangcanyon

Things that don't happen every day: moon landings, royal births, Supreme Court nominations — and an all-new Ford Mustang. This year is one of those rare times in which we get to experience at least one of those events as Ford brings its completely redone pony car to be tested for the first time ever.

On paper, the 2015 Ford Mustang looks like it's got the goods to go global: an optional, fuel-efficient, high-powered turbocharged four-cylinder engine; a completely new all-independent suspension; even forthcoming right-hand-drive models for British and certain Asian markets. Will what plays well in Des Moines, Iowa, also prove popular in Dusseldorf, Germany? Is the new Mustang improved enough to unseat the Chevrolet Camaro and fend off the redesigned 2015 Dodge Challenger?
