The do-it-all wondercar. Some folks search for it like Ponce De Len after the Fountain of Youth. Others declare the very concept anathema: The jack of all trades is master of none, they harp. Both are right, and both are wrong. The proof? The ten-cylinder, carbon-and-aluminum 2017 Audi R8 V10 Spyder. As a cargo hauler, …

The 2017 Nissan Rogue Sport isn’t a high-performance car. It’s the new pint-size version of the increasingly popular Rogue crossover, and its surname means the same thing as when you say “Hey, sport!” to a small boy — or did back in the ’50s. Nissan calls it the Qashqai, the name of an Iranian ethnic …

The Nissan Qashqai is Europe’s best-selling urban crossover, and is now available with significant enhancements which further develop its premium character.

The Prius nameplate has been inexorably tied to the green car scene for a long time now. When Toyota unleashed the Prius Prime upon the world, we said it was the best Prius yet. But this is no longer a world where Toyota’s hybrids are automatically crowned king. Our recent time with the Hyundai Ioniq …

During the 370Z’s nine-year tenure on sale in the U.S., we’ve tested several iterations of Nissan’s two-seat sports car. But this is the first time we’ve gotten ahold of a base model without any performance-enhancing options, which also made it the slowest Nissan 370Z we’ve tested. Defanged base models of high-powered sports coupes have been …

Think of the 2017 Lexus RC350 F Sport as James Bond without his trademark marksmanship or Frank Sinatra sans his famous low notes. It’s handsome, but handsome only takes you so far. Key to the Lexus RC350’s character is its Frankenstein’s Monster chassis that’s made up of pieces from three different Lexus models: The front …

The Chevrolet Equinox was one of the lesser-known compact crossovers in the market, and it didn’t really help that, in terms of size, it was slightly larger than most of its competitive set. Now sized appropriately and packing more tech, the all-new 2018 Equinox is looking to take a bite out of the rapidly growing …

The weekend mud club at Bundy Hill is your usual cast of characters, from the battered old Wrangler and Cherokees to more lithe and stripped-down dune buggies. A moderately sized three-row family crossover, let alone one from Germany, is about as common here as a polar bear. Nevertheless, Volkswagen felt confident enough in the capability …

What’s 220 pounds to General Motors’ new 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8 engine? Not much, based on the minuscule differences between the performances of the 2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD tested here and a slightly smaller, extended-cab Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with the same engine we tested earlier this year. This 8000-pound GMC—a high-zoot, crew-cab Denali model—is 9.5 …
