    2010 Volkswagen Golf R Review

    Volkswagen sure knows how to please. The new, sixth-generation Golf is one of the better compact cars, a great-handling hatchback that’s comfortable, too. And we think the sportiest Golf, the 200-hp GTI, is even better—witness its inclusion on our 2010 10Best Cars list. (The previous GTI, based on the Golf V, made...

    2010 Ford Fusion Sports AWD Review

    Heretofore, Sport-y Fusions have been so mostly in appearance; the previous Sport package could be applied to front-drive SE or SEL trims and included a gaudy interior upgrade, a rear lip spoiler, a stiffer suspension, 18-inch wheels, and not much else. For 2010, however, the Sport becomes an independent model—with either front-...

    2009 Nissan Sentra Review

    Nissan’s compact Sentra plays in an increasingly competitive league, thanks to the growing number of consumers who are gravitating to smaller cars. Within the Nissan lineup, the Sentra occupies the space between the less expensive and slightly smaller Versa and the larger Altima family sedan. The Sentra was redesigned and basically all-new...

    With just over 10,000 miles on the clock, our long-term Mazda 3 hatchback is a quarter of the way through its test, and it’s racking up praise at a significant pace. Drama-free to live with yet lively behind the wheel, the little Mazda made it through winter’s worst (at least we hope...

    2009 Mitsubishi i AWD Review

    Mitsubishi tried to chase Toyota and Nissan with mainstream cars and landed on skid row for it. Now it badly needs a product that causes riots outside its dealerships—a car so unusual and unexpected that it will catch Toyota flat-footed while hurling the three-diamond badge like a ninja’s throwing star back into...

    2011 Chevrolet Cruze US Spec Review

    In the compact-car segment, the Japanese rule the field. With the honorable exception of the first-generation Ford Focus, American compacts have been beat by the Honda Civic, Mazda 3, and Toyota Corolla in both sales and public perception. Part of the reason for this is that, as outgoing General Motors vice-chairman Bob...

    2010 Mini Cooper 50 Camden Edition – Review

    It’s a special-edition Mini. Although that in and of itself isn’t particularly noteworthy—Mini churns out a new variant, like, every 10 minutes—the Mini Camden talks to you in reaction to driver inputs. But more on that in a second. Available solely on 2010 Mini Cooper and Cooper S three-doors and named for...
