2012 Acura TL
2012 Acura TL SH-AWD: Driven

Mention the Acura TL as a next-car possibility, in certain sport-sedan enthusiast circles, and it's possible you might lose some credibility. If you want a serious sport sedan, they'll argue, you might as well get one on a dedicated rear-wheel-drive platform, like the BMW 3-Series, Cadillac CTS, or...Read More»

2012 Chevrolet Sonic: Subcompact, Definitely Not Subpar

With the introduction of the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic, General Motors at last has some truly competitive, top-notch small-car choices in its lineup. And it's about time; with decades of inconsistent model entries and frequently shifting nameplates—Chevette, Vega, Spectrum, Sprint, Metro...Read More»

2012 Buick Regal GS Production Live Shots
2012 Buick Regal GS Gets Pre-Launch Horsepower Bump

Common wisdom decrees that Buicks have an interior that’s silent as a tomb, with handling most often associated with ocean-going vessels. Common wisdom, then, wouldn’t apply to the new Buick Regal, which is the first Buick in recent history to add a dose of sport to its ample amounts of...Read More»

2010 Saab 9-5
2011 Saab 9-5: Top Safety Pick, Class-Leading Roof Rating

The 2011 Saab 9-5 might be relatively rare on U.S. highways, as it's been plagued by production issues related to Saab's financial difficulties and change of ownership. But it went on sale months ago—and now it's been thoroughly crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety...Read More»

2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.0T
2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo: Driven

Just a few years ago, the conventional wisdom with mid-size sedans was that, unless you counted yourself among frugally minded tightwads, you'd be much happier with the optional V-6 than with a standard four-cylinder engine. Then four-cylinder engines found a new benchmark for power last year, when...Read More»

2012 Cadillac CTS 2-door Coupe Premium RWD Gear Shift
2012 Cadillac CTS Models Lose Shift-It-Yourself Option

When Cadillac launched the CTS Sedan, and later the CTS Coupe, they presented the cars as a viable option to European sport sedans and coupes.

2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport
2011 Suzuki Kizashi Sport SLS: Driven

Sold under nearly any other major automotive brand, the 2011 Kizashi Sport would be a major sales success. So far for Suzuki, however, it hasn't; and we think that's a shame, as it's one of the best sport sedans for anyone on a tight budget. After a follow-up drive with the new 2011 Suzuki Kizashi...Read More»

2009 Acura TSX
Driven: 2010 Acura TSX V6

Full confession: When I first heard Acura was putting a big, 3.5-liter V-6 into its TSX sport sedan, my response involved a shoulder shrug. That's because the TSX didn't really need it; as we've said in previous drives, with the standard rev-happy 201-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (especially...Read More»

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD
Driven: 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD

For 2010, the Acura TL is once again offered with a manual gearbox. But you're probably going to have to special-order it, or at least do some calling and searching to even find one. Why? Because even among luxury sport sedans, the number of people opting for a manual transmission is very...Read More»
