2017 Toyota Camry Review

The Toyota Camry is America's best-selling car in a competitive segment that includes strong entries such as the Honda Accord, Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, and Subaru Legacy. The Camry was most recently overhauled in 2015, and this year's model carries over largely unchanged.

2017 BMW M2 Review

While other M cars have sacrificed driver engagement for track times, the M2 gets back to the basics, and makes it the type of M car that enthusiasts expect from BMW. Power is derived from a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6. The direct-injected, twin-scroll-turbo inline-6 is distinct from what’s used in main-line BMWs and the current M3 and M4.

The 2017 Honda Accord Sport becomes Special when you add leather, we agree

The new Accord Sport seems to be doing well for Honda. After making its bow last year, the appearance package for the new Accord that heaps on body sills, a rear spoiler and chrome dual exhaust tips gets a sibling that will add two more tricks for 2017: heated leather seats with red stitching and sweet, sweet "Special Edition" badges.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R roars into Goodwood Festival of Speed

Mercedes-AMG’s new GT R sports car was hardly a secret, but regardless it’s finally here and there are plenty of details to divulge. The GT R is a track-focused version of the GT sports car launched by AMG two years ago, and it’s coming onto the market next year with even more power, less weight, advanced aerodynamics and active rear-wheel steering, making it a perfect match for cars like the Chevrolet Corvette Z06, Nissan GT-R Nismo and Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Your grandchildren won't fill their tanks—or even own cars: report

The internal-combustion car was the dominant form of personal transportation in the U.S. for most of the 20th century, and that is still the case today. But electric cars are gaining momentum, and they could lead to even more drastic changes in the car industry than just the abandonment of fossil fuels.

New Tesla Model X overreach fix: removable mesh to block sun

The Tesla Model X is set apart not only by its electric powertrain, but by several dramatic design flourishes. These include the famous Falcon doors, as well as a windshield that extends up much further than on most cars.
