Kia K 900

The South Korean car market is marked by fierce loyalty for domestic brands, bolstered by government policies restricting imported brands that have only eased during the past several years. The hometown crowd that packed the arenas to cheer the country’s Olympic speed skaters will no doubt prefer the second generation of the Kia K900, the …

Chevy Colorado ZR2

Chances are you’ve already heard of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2. A smaller alternative to the high-speed desert-crushing Ford F-150 Raptor, it features a handful of fantastic off-road features and advanced suspension tech perfect for bombing down your nearest desert flatland. Here in the Northeast, where Road & Track’s online presence is based, we don’t have …

2018 Subaru BRZ

I had a 2018 Subaru BRZ Limited with a six-speed manual and half a day to play on wet, windy roads hemmed by pine trees in the foothills of a massive mountain range. But Michigan was on my mind. Some cars work everywhere. Michigan’s the perfect place to find those that do: The roads are …

Audi A7

The 2019 Audi A7 is a stone-cold fox, plain and simple. From its rakish squint to its faceted tail, the new Sportback updates the design-centric theme that originated in 2009 with striking, fresh sheetmetal. But while the original A7’s big hatchback layout was a novel packaging exercise paired with a somewhat compromised rear-seat experience, the …

2018 Lexus LS 500 F

The ultimate Lexus, and the one that launched the brand, the LS was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year. It introduced an aggressive version of the famous (infamous?) “spindle” grille, a swoopy interior, and went to a completely V6-powered lineup, the fully gas-powered model featuring a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter engine. Not only that, but it …

The Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro already shares a few V-8 engine choices with the C7 Corvette, and there might soon be some manual-transmission overlap as well. AutoGuide found a document from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) that suggests the 2019 Camaro will gain a seven-speed manual transmission, presumably the same unit found in the Vette, in …

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

It is, without a doubt, one of the strangest variants of a high-volume vehicle on sale in the U.S. right now: the 2018 Chevy Equinox fitted with the company’s 1.6-liter EcoTec turbodiesel. That’s right, one of the most typically American platforms fitted with an engine type that, especially given the Volkswagen Group’s recent difficulties, has …

2018 Mazda MX-5

Every few years, Mazda adds a couple of tasty options and upgrades to the MX-5 Miata to keep its roadster fresh. For 2018, the MX-5 soft top gets new tuning for its rear suspension and electric power steering, plus a red soft top and Recaro seats as options. Nothing game-changer, but potentially welcome improvements for …

2019 Chevy Silverado

Forget the spy shots, teasers, and speculation. This is the 2019 Chevy Silverado, which got a surprise debut at an event celebrating the brand’s 100-year anniversary of trucks, in brand-new Trail Boss trim. While we’ll have to wait for the Detroit Auto Show next month for all the details, we can at least get a …

Lamborghini

It’s healthy to be skeptical of ambitious supercar startups. Far too many of them fail before ever delivering a single working vehicle. Creating a new car, even one based on a current production vehicle, is a difficult, complex and expensive task. This is the Ares Design “Project Panther,” a concept for a coachbuilt supercar based …
