2017 Toyota 4Runner
2017 Toyota 4Runner

It may be something of a relic among SUVs, but that's part of the Toyota 4Runner's lasting appeal. It's like a Patagonia fleece pull-over that never seems to wear out despite being your hiking go-to. If you're a city slicker, there are far better SUV and crossover offerings on the...Read More»

2017 Toyota Sienna
2017 Toyota Sienna

Minivan drivers are some of the most fiercely loyal owners on the planet—just ask one. It takes some coaxing (or capitulation) to get them inside, but once they're in, they usually stay there. They're ultimate family vehicles: vans are robust machines built for car seats, plenty...Read More»

2017 Toyota 86
2017 Toyota 86

With the demise of the Scion brand, the FR-S sport coupe becomes the Toyota 86 (pronounced "eight-six") for the 2017 model year. With the changeover, the 86 gets styling tweaks, revised suspension settings, slightly more power, and a few upgraded interior materials. The changes tweak...Read More»

2017 Maserati Ghibli
2017 Maserati Ghibli

The Maserati Ghibli has a name that throws back to the Italian automaker's past, but in its current form the Ghibli sedan only dates back to 2014. It's based on the bigger Quattroporte sedan, but is smaller and not as luxurious. Today's lineup of Ghibli sedans includes the base car, the...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Cabriolet
2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is no longer the flagship of the German automaker's lineup; it's a complex set of flagships, with coupe, cabriolet (convertible), and sedan body styles, rear- all-wheel drive, high-performance AMG versions, ultra-luxury Maybachs, and even an S550e Plug-In...Read More»

2017 Toyota Avalon
2017 Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon doesn't beg you to own it or drive it. It puts comfort to the fore: it's comfortable like a pillow-top bed, and no longer rides or handles like one. This year, it's offered as an Avalon XLE, XLE Plus, XLE Premium, Limited, or as an Avalon Touring. Avalon Hybrid sedans...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class marks a significant, mid-cycle upgrade for what was previously knew as the GL-Class. As part of a nomenclature change sweeping the entire brand, each of the German luxury maker's sport-utility vehicles has received new badging and a full or partial...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class
2017 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Nearly every vehicle in the Mercedes-Benz model lineup has become a little more emphatic and expressive over the past year or two; and with the arrival of a refreshed 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL lineup, the same applies to the luxury automaker's classic two-seater. Not quite a sports car, but...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class
2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class

As the smallest sedan in the three-pointed star's ever-growing family, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA continues to woo a different kind of buyer than those who have traditionally sought and owned the German automaker’s big, rather conservative sedans and purposeful utility vehicles...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class
2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has moved far from its roots as a utilitarian vehicle designed with soldiers in mind. It's available in G550, G63 AMG, G65 AMG, or new G550 4x4² (that's "four-by-four squared") configurations, all of which are decadent and way over the top. Overall...Read More»

2017 BMW i3
2017 BMW i3

Without a doubt, the BMW i3 is the most unusual car to bear the brand's signature blue and white roundel. Yet it's also the most environmentally forward-thinking car to ever emerge from Munich, even if it is rather pricey despite the compromises it forces. We appreciate the i3's unique...Read More»

2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class (E300)
2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz has long laid claim to some of the most technologically advanced vehicles on the road. With the new E-Class, the German automaker says it's outdone itself: the new 2017 E-Class is even more flush with technology than its nearly new S-Class. In its initial form, the E-Class...Read More»
