2018 Volkswagen Golf R Manual Tested!

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 21:04:31 +0000

Few vehicles in Volkswagen’s current lineup are as divisive among the Car and Driver staff as the Golf R. Even a casual mention risks stirring the office pundits, triggering impromptu sermons dissecting the Golf R’s price-versus-performance statistics and quoting heavily from the holy book of the Golf GTI, a deity around these parts. It’s not […]

2018 Jaguar F-type Tested in Depth: Beauty and Brawn

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:56:11 +0000

Some people drive cars for the thrill of it—the mind-body-machine connection, the adrenaline rush that accompanies excessive speed, the whoosh of fallen leaves as they spin into a cyclone in the rearview mirror. Some people drive cars because they want everyone else to know how much car they can afford. The Jaguar F-type sits precisely […]

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:27:23 +0000

The explosive growth of the crossover SUV market has been good for automakers’ bottom lines, but the real winner might just be the consumer. Look at the current state of the compact-luxury-crossover segment, for instance. Every major premium brand now fields an entry, and many of them are very compelling. There’s the well-rounded Audi Q5, […]

Get Out Early, Get In Late: What to Know About Auto Lease Transfers

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 17:56:36 +0000

There are usually three reasons people want to get out of a car lease early. A financial situation could have changed, making payments difficult. Or maybe there was a move to a city, and a car is no longer needed. Most people just want a new vehicle. “There’s a honeymoon period with a new car,” […]

Steve McQueen’s Bullitt-Movie Mustang Suddenly Reappeared. This Is How It Happened

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 16:26:39 +0000

Steve McQueen’s Highland Green 1968 Ford Mustang GT fastback vanished 38 years ago. The ominous-looking pony car with the barking 390-cubic-inch V-8, which starred in one of the greatest chase scenes in movie history in the film Bullitt—with McQueen doing the driving in many of the shots—may have been lost, but it was never forgotten. […]

2018 Toyota RAV4 in Depth: Dull Dynamics Outweighed by Practicality and Value

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 15:49:33 +0000

As one of the original compact crossovers with roots dating back more than two decades, the RAV4 continues to be one of the most popular choices in the Toyota showroom. It is hard-earned popularity: the RAV4’s spacious cabin, straightforward controls, and the added perk of advanced standard active safety tech such as automated emergency braking […]

Driveshaft Delete: BMW X2 and X3 Drop Price with New Two-Wheel-Drive Variants

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 13:55:04 +0000

There’s no use paying for something you don’t need on a new BMW, even if nobody “needs” a new BMW. To sweeten the deal on its latest crossovers, BMW is offering two-wheel-drive versions of its X2 and X3, a move that effectively lowers starting prices. At their debut, both the X2 and X3 were available only […]

Audi’s New A8 Will Be the Last with a W-12; V-10’s Future Looks Shaky, Too

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 13:36:16 +0000

While nothing succeeds like excess, the trend for downsizing is reaching higher and higher into the auto industry. Now Audi has confirmed that the newly introduced 2019 A8 sedan will be the last model the company produces to use a 12-cylinder engine. “We will not have the 12-cylinder forever,” Peter Mertens, Audi’s R&D boss, told […]

Driven: The All-New Ram 1500 Pickup Is More Aerodynamic, Efficient, and Luxurious Than Ever

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 04:01:05 +0000

There’s a war raging on the home front. A divide in our nation. A fight between deeply entrenched opponents. Social media up in flames. But it’s not what you think. This thing has been going on for decades. This is the truck war, the clash among the best-selling vehicles in the United States. In 2017, combined […]

Ford Explorer ST Confirmed, Rear-Wheel Drive a Possibility

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 22:07:57 +0000

Ford formally confirmed that the next-generation Explorer lineup will include a sporty ST variant, much like the recently announced Edge ST. Expect the high-performance Explorer ST to take the place of the current Sport trim level in the Explorer hierarchy. Like the Sport, the Explorer ST is likely to be motivated by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6. […]

Porsche Panamera 4S Tested: Speedy but Sterile

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 21:29:32 +0000

Any day that we can drive a new Porsche is a good day, although we admit we especially enjoy examples packed to the rain rails with performance-enhancing goodies. There are many such items on the German company’s famously long list of extras, including active suspension systems, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, chest-thumping exhaust systems, aggressive wheel-and-tire combos, […]

2018 Infiniti QX30 In-Depth Review: A Striking Mini Crossover with Minimal Practicality

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 20:58:34 +0000

The highly stylized QX30 attempts to connect the experience of compact hatchbacks and high-riding crossovers. Its unmistakable sheetmetal is straight from Infiniti’s design studio, but its platform and powertrain are courtesy of Mercedes-Benz—specifically the CLA- and GLA-class. The little luxury ute shares their 208-hp turbo four-cylinder and seven-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard; optional […]
