      It's kind of the best-looking Tucson Hyundai never made, but I definitely like the GLA. It's got that kind of rally-bulldog thing going for it. Apparently the GLA45 AMG is just stupid, hilarious...

      This isn't filet mignon and wedding cake. It's more like a filet mignon vs.s a really good Berkshire bone-on pork chop. Obviously, if you're in the mood for beef, the chop ain't gonna be on your...

      The forms and details are nice and I love the orange accent color on the gray one. That said....the CLA has weird proportions and this does too. In photos, it looks fine fron the rear and sides,...

      I agree with all of this. My '13 is on a different planet from the 11-12 models. Stiffer rear sway bar, at the very least, and I suspect they redid the spring rates as well. It gets a bit of...

      The Venza is crap. Anything but that. It has switchgear that was shared with the 2003 Pontiac Vibe my wife drove when she was a broke-ass grad student.

      The CR-V is a great car. Just do it. ...

      And for those who do drive out to wellheads and pipelines - summer, winter, sandstorms, blizzards, raining, sleeting, 110F, 5F - I can totally understand wanting a plush, optioned-out mobile office. ...

      Just for ****s and giggles, I just priced out a Competition Orange Mustang Ecoboost with Recaros, the oh-so-sexily named Package 201A with Shaker ICE and SYNC, the Ecoboost Performance Pack, and...

      Just 18 months ago, I was looking for a practical, capable, AWD, midsize 5-door family car with excellent fuel economy and decent driving manners. I'm a previous owner of a VW, I'm an affluent-ish...

      For a loaded, V8 midsize luxury sedan with tons of space and amenities? The exact face I made:

      Now go load out a 5-series to a comparable level of spec. Guarantee...

      They're all somewhat premium sedans that are either close to the Genesis' $38k or close to its midsize class, nothing more. And yes, it's a very diverse market with a lot of different choices for...

      Well....sorry, but I think your expectations are unrealistic. For a vehicle with this kind of frontal area, mass, and sheer capability, that is significant. Aerodynamics being what they are,...

      It's a set protocol that produces reproducible, cross-comparable results. That's a hell of a lot less flawed than relying on the self-reported "real life" numbers of people who have a strong...

      "Better" is really subjective. The Genesis is, as OOOO-A3 says, kind of a generic trunker. I'd absolutely call it better than most generic trunkers in the same price range - S60, TLX, Regal, A4,...

      I keep having this feeling that we're going to see Tesla merge or get aquired or something. Might not be a carmaker. I honestly thought Toyota was making a move for Tesla a few years ago. ...

      Having sat in a new S-class, I'd be real hard-pressed, honestly, to believe anything else is nicer. More unique, more emotional, more expressive? I believe that no problem, but the S-class is hard...
