2012 Paris Auto Show: New Cars, New Concepts, Old Problems

The auto industry's been known to defy logic. At the 2012 Paris Auto Show, it seemed to defy gravity. Europe's been embroiled in a currency crisis for more than a year.

Chevrolet’s full-size crossover, the Traverse, gets a bit of a makeover, both inside and out, for the 2013 model year.

2013 Cadillac SRX: Walkaround Video

The 2013 Cadillac SRX gets a number of minor changes throughout, but it's worth skipping right to the instrument panel, where GM has a host of industry exclusive features in its groundbreaking new CUE (Cadillac User Experience) infotainment system.

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe
2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Walkaround Video

2013 Buick Enclave
2013 Buick Enclave: Walkaround Video

The Buick Enclave has been on the market for about five years, and because it was the first vehicle to represent the new face of Buick, the 2012 model that's in showrooms still looks relatively fresh and contemporary from the outside.

2014 Chevrolet Impala: Walkaround Video

Despite being the largest sedan in Chevrolet’s current lineup, the 2012 Impala lacks anything of merit to make it stand out in a crowd. Sure, the 2012 model gets a six-speed automatic transmission (finally), but even that isn’t enough to make a car that was largely ignored by GM over...Read More»

2013 Nissan Altima
2013 Nissan Altima: Walkaround Video

When the final tally was counted for 2011, the Toyota Camry still held on to the title of best-selling passenger car. In a surprising second place?
