2017 Volkswagen Jetta SEL
Drive notes: 2017 Volkswagen Jetta SEL

The people spoke and Volkswagen listened with its Jetta compact sedan.

2017 Ford Fusion Sport
Mid-size sedans scrapping vanilla in favor of sport

The family sedan is in the midst of a quiet revolution. What was once indisputably the type of car most likely to be found in the average American garage has been displaced by crossovers and SUVs that channel a little Marlboro Man with room for the kids and their gear (plus maybe the neighbors'...Read More»

2018 Toyota Camry
2018 Toyota Camry video preview

Look, the Camry’s never been a car one might call exciting to look at, or frankly, exciting period. But this new 2018 model, while evolutionary, does move the needle. It’s sharp, with more sculpting in the sheetmetal a lower hood line. Overall it just looks sleeker. WATCH: 2018...Read More»

Honda Civic: The Car Connection's Best Economy Vehicle to Buy 2017

Trucks may get all the glory, but economy cars do just as much work.

2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport first drive: close encounter of a turbocharged kind

Outside of Vegas, an alien-themed cathouse provides the only Kodak moments for a hundred miles or more. Honest, honey--we're just here for the pictures! Yep, that's how we'll sell it on social media. And at home. The weird, fleshy offshoot of capitalism gives us reason, at least, to pull to the...Read More»
