    2015 Kia K900

    By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman - MyCarData.com While we found our test car, the all-new full-sized rear-driven Kia K900 luxury sedan certainly worth its $66,000 price — in fact, a true bargain — the question that kept popping up as we floated down the road, who is going to buy this vehicle? Perhaps Kia has answered the question that nobody has asked except for the media. Michael Sprague, … [Read More...]

    2014 Porsche Cayman

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – There’s nothing like the rhythmic serenade of a Porsche mid-engine sports car when it is mated to a manual transmission and it is accelerating. Yes, to boost sales Porsche developed the Doppelkupplungsgetriebe or (PDK) transmission. In English, that means a dual clutch seven-speed automatic. It is so good that it out performs a professional driver to the … [Read More...]

    2014 Mercedes-Benz E350 Wagon

    By Chris Jackson - MyCarData.com The Mercedes station wagon is an automotive icon. Let me give you some backstory. This car's reputation has been pretty much set in stone, thanks to the unkillable diesel sedans that first appeared in the U.S. in the 1970s. For the most part, American consumers didn't take to diesel, but the cargo-carrying version introduced a new range of buyers to the … [Read More...]

    Rosso Lamborghini Aventador LP 700

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData The day was cloudy, misty and cold when I was pointed to a Rosso Lamborghini Aventador LP 700 and asked, “Would you like a drive?” The coastal Florida roads outside the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance were thick with traffic, and worse, Highway Patrol and local deputies. They were hungry, looking for fools dumb enough to nail a 700-horsepower Lamborghini on their … [Read More...]

    Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData There are only a handful of luxury super sports cars in the world. Ferrari, McLaren, Aston-Martin, Porsche and Lamborghini dominate the very short list. For a decade, Lamborghini’s bread and butter has been spread by the Gallardo, a mid-engine V-10 supercar that survived because it diversified from a slightly fussy Italian exotic to a dependable exotic with loads of … [Read More...]

    2014 Ford Explorer

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – Ford bet big on digital controls and the automaker seems to be winning. The center stack of every Ford is almost button-less, controls are actuated either through a touch screen or a touch pad. It makes for a really clean and uncluttered look. That’s the case with the 2014 Ford Explorer. The interior of the sport utility was modern and unfettered by a lot of … [Read More...]

    2014 Toyota Tundra 4X4

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – With nothing to haul or to tow, the only way to really test drive the 2014 Toyota Tundra half ton full size 4X4 pickup truck was to approach it as a personal use vehicle. Of the three cab styles available on the new Tundra --  a two-door regular cab, four-door double cab and four-door CrewMax – the test vehicle was the latter, a four-door Crew Max. That means … [Read More...]

    Mercedes-Benz CLA

    By Dan Scanlan - MyCarData America has a new baby – a baby Benz, that is. Twenty one years after Mercedes-Benz introduced a 14.8-foot-long C-Class as its first compact, the CLA-Class comes stateside to now become the company’s current compact (15.1-foot) sedan. Or, to be correct, four-door coupe. As well as being small, although its actually a touch longer than the C-Class sedan that lives … [Read More...]

    by Frank S. Washington DETROIT – One foot of snow and a rear-wheel-drive sedan makes for adventurous driving that is not fun. That is exactly what happened during the week-long test drive of the 2014 Dodge Charger SXT Plus. Worse, was that it was bitterly cold, like below zero cold and it stayed that way for days. One of the characteristics of cold weather and snow is that salt is not really … [Read More...]

So whenever the Korean automaker changes the car it is done with great care and great planning.   For the 2015 model year, Hyundai wants to broaden the Sonata’s…
