Cars.com Podcast: 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco, 2012 Buick Verano, 2012 Audi A6

2013 Chevrolet Malibu
This week's podcast covers three totally redesigned or new models, each of which is integral to its respective make. We start with the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, which features a radical interior design and the return of a mild hybrid system to the model. Next up is the 2012 Buick Verano, the brand's first compact vehicle in more than a decade. Finally, we talk about the new-for-2012 Audi A6 and its tech-centric focus. Recapping all our thoughts and insights on these models are Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder, Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays and editor Mike Hanley.

Cars.com Podcast: 2012 Honda CR-V, 2013 Mazda CX-5

CR-V & CX-5
The 2011 L.A. Auto Show brought us plenty to gawk at in the compact-crossover segment. We test-drove two of the top compact crossovers shown at the event — the 2012 Honda CR-V and 2013 Mazda CX-5 — right out of the gate. We thought the redesigned CR-V was another well-rounded contender by Honda, while the fuel-efficient CX-5 could, hopefully, sell better than the oft-forgotten Mazda Tribute, the vehicle the CX-5 replaces. Discussing all this on the podcast are editors Joe Wiesenfelder, David Thomas and Kelsey Mays.

Cars.com Podcast: 2012 Chevy Sonic, 2012 Volkswagen Eos, 2012 Fiat 500C

Sonicpodcast
Small is big these days, and Chevy’s new Sonic is a big deal for the automaker. It replaces the poorly reviewed Aveo and so far has been impressive. Editors Joe Wiesenfelder, Joe Bruzek and Bill Jackson discuss how far Chevy’s smallest car has come, along with two convertibles from Volkswagen and Fiat.

Cars.com Podcast: 2012 Subaru Impreza

2012subaruimpreza
Subarus are some of the most researched vehicles on Cars.com, especially if you take into account their overall sales being a fraction of popular models from Toyota and Honda. That’s why we figured we’d dedicate an entire podcast to the redesigned 2012 Subaru Impreza. Editors Joe Wiesenfelder and Bill Jackson talk about the entry-level Subaru and how it holds up to the competition.

Cars.com Podcast: 2012 Hyundai Veloster, 2012 BMW X5

2012 Hyundai VelosterThis week’s Cars.com podcast is a duality of sorts. First, we give an overview of the aging 2012 BMW X5, which is likely to be replaced with a new model soon. Afterward, we talk about something entirely different: the all-new 2012 Hyundai Velsoter. The three-door hatch opens up a completely new market for Hyundai, a carmaker that’s been making headwinds in the affordable-sedan category over the past few years. Talking about these polar opposites are Cars.com editors Joe Wiesenfelder, Mike Hanley and Kelsey Mays.

Cars.com Podcast: 2012 Toyota Camry, 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid, 2012 Toyota Yaris

2012 Toyota Camry familyIt’s been a Toyotathon of a week here at Cars.com. First, we got our hands on the all-new, completely redesigned 2012 Toyota Yaris — now available just as a hatchback. Then, we test-drove the even more important 2012 Toyota Camry and Toyota Camry Hybrid. Both have improved ride and handling, interiors and gas mileage. Will it be enough to help turn around Toyota’s sagging sales in the U.S.? Discussing all of this on this week’s podcast are Cars.com editors Joe Wiesenfelder, Kelsey Mays and Bill Jackson.

Cars.com Podcast: 2011 Kia Forte Five-Door, 2012 Infiniti M56X, 2011 Nissan 370Z Roadster

Kiafivedoor
There’s a little bit of everything in this week’s podcast. Kia has been on a roll lately with its Optima sedan and Sorento SUV, but they’ve got compacts, too, and unlike Hyundai, they have a hatchback version of the Forte compact sedan. Does it make the Forte platform more versatile? And how do editors Joe Wiesenfelder, Kelsey Mays and Mike Hanley feel about the new Infiniti M56X and Nissan 370Z Roadster?

Crosscabrio
If it’s not unbearably hot where you live, you may be shopping for a convertible. If a convertible has never appealed to you because it didn’t come in the form of an SUV, then you must listen to this podcast about Nissan’s all-new Murano CrossCabriolet. Editors Joe Bruzek, Bill Jackson and Joe Wiesenfelder discuss this unique entry as well as Hyundai’s two-door sport coupe and Porsche’s redesigned hybrid SUV.
