2016 Honda Fit Review

The 2016 Honda Fit sets the benchmarks for interior space, utility, and safety for small hatchbacks. It may not be as entertaining to drive as it once was, and some minor fit and finish niggles could use some attention, but by a wide margin, it's our top choice in its class.

2016 Lincoln MKC Review

With the 2016 MKC, Lincoln is trying to connect with a crowd it's simply lost touch with: young, affluent professionals in big East and West Coast cities. With the Lincoln brand again in flux, and migrating toward something that's more design- and technology-focused, it's getting a lot closer—if these shoppers can look past the ambiguity of the badge.

The new version is the S8 Plus, and it makes its world debut next month at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

2017 Ford GT Spy Shots And Video

Ford’s new GT supercar has been caught once again testing in production trim—or a somewhat more naked version of production trim—and this time we have video footage. The video gives us a good idea as to what the new supercar will look like on the road when it's finally launched on the market, currently scheduled for sometime next year.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC Priced From $39,875

We already had a chance to take Mercedes-Benz’s new GLC for a spin and found it to be a very impressive vehicle. With a roomy interior that’s easily the best in class, a powerful engine under the hood (and more potent units to come), and ride comfort that’s comparable to the impeccable C-Class sedan, there’s a lot to love about this plush small SUV.
