    2016 Kia Optima

    by Frank S. Washington ASPEN, Colo., – The new 2016 Kia Optima has two story lines. The first is the evolutionary change in design. The sheet metal is new but you’ll know the car is an Optima from across any parking lot. The second is the quantum leap in the reduction of noise, vibration and harshness. The silent running of the Kia Optima was the talk of this press launch. On a long straight … [Read More...]

    2015 Ford Mustang Convertible

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – Although the new Mustang is just that – all new – it is unmistakably a Mustang. But it is contemporarily styled inside and out. The hood is still long and the rear end remains more of a stump than a rump. Our 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible was lower and it had a wider stance with wider fenders and track. In other words, it was firmly planted on the … [Read More...]

    2015 Alfa Romeo 4C

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – Where to begin, the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C was just that different. This Italian made pocket rocket is the first of a slew of Alfa Romeos headed to this market. And if the 4C is any indication, then there is a new player in the luxury performance game and the engineers from Modena, Italy, are to be taken seriously. Our test car was small, real small. It was … [Read More...]

    2015 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData.com When it comes to Mercedes-Benz, any car with an “S” in its name is special — and usually fast. In 1955, a Mercedes-Benz 300SLR won the 1,000-mile Mille Miglia with Sir Stirling Moss and Denis Jenkinson on board — I saw Moss driving it at this year’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance! And in the past few decades, the S-Class sedan was Mercedes-Benz’s flagship … [Read More...]

    2016 Chevrolet Malibu

    By Ken Chester, Jr. ,  Motor News Media It seems that throughout time, the Chevrolet Malibu has always been the “go-to” in the automaker’s line-up when consumers looking to buy a solid, reliable, economical and roomy four-door sedan. For the 2016 model year, the automaker has upped the ante with an all-new Malibu. This completely reimagined sedan is all-new from the ground up. The 2016 … [Read More...]

  • Created by driving enthusiasts for driving enthusiasts, the dramatically styled 2016 Nissan Maxima looks like nothing else on the road today - and drives like nothing in the segment. The all-new Nissan flagship not only resets Maxima's iconic "4-Door Sports Car" positioning, it sets a new standard for style, performance and technology in the large sedan segment.

    2016 Nissan Maxima

    By Frank S. Washington PLYMOUTH, MI, -- You've got to give Nissan credit. The automaker has always been a little bit different; intrepid when it comes to going places where no others dare. This time the variance involved its flagship sedan, the Maxima, and how the company has incorporated its new futuristic design language into the car. In a phrase, you’re either going to love or loathe the … [Read More...]

    Mercedes-AMG GLA45 4MATIC

    Written by Lyndon Conrad Bell If you shop this car on the Mercedes-Benz USA Website, you’ll find the Mercedes-AMG GLA45 4MATIC model is listed under SUVs & Wagons. Then, when you click the dropdown menu, you’ll see it listed as the GLA45 AMG SUV. This is straight-out subterfuge. The GLA45 AMG is about as much a sport utility vehicle as Kanye is likely to remain seated at an awards … [Read More...]

    2015 Lexus RC-F coupe

    By Mary Chapman I am not a fan of amusement park rides, particularly when they are machines that go fast and whip you around like your great-grandma's butter churner. Not my idea of fun. Call it a case of cognitive dissonance, then, 'cause I love me some fast cars, particularly those as wild and rollicky as Lexus' RC-F monster. The barely street-legal adaptation of the nascent RC coupe, the … [Read More...]

    2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD

    By Mary M. Chapman  Because I came of age in a different era, I've been trying, for more years than I'd rather admit, to get used to the "new" Cadillacs. See, Daddy was a Cadillac man, and every two years or so, in the '60s and '70s, he'd buy a new Eldo or Deville, to go with our requisite van or wagon, of course. That vaunted Cadillac crest? It may as well have been our family's crest So, … [Read More...]


    2016 Toyota Tundra 4X4


    Tweet by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – The most difficult segment of the American car market for an outsider to crack is the light duty truck segment. That has much to do with the Toyota Tundra’s failure to dominate this segment as it has just about every segment that it has entered, despite having a…

    2016 Jeep Renegade

    Tweet By Russ Heaps – MyCarData.com Base Price: $17,995 Price as Tested: $23,295 A small SUV with a big heart, the Jeep Renegade upholds the family name. Yes, it’s built in Italy and shares many components with its kissing cousin the Fiat 500X, but Jeep managed to bake enough of its well-tested off-road engineering into…

    2016 Toyota Corolla S Plus

    Tweet by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – Toyota’s Camry has been the best-selling car for years but the company’s Corolla has defined the brand for decades. And it is still America’s best-selling compact. The new Corolla was big, for a compact. And that meant there was a bunch of rear-seat room. Two adults could get…

    Tweet By Casey Williams – MyCarData.com He wasn’t even considering it. My friend, and the Cadillac ATS-V, that is.
