Identity Crisis Aside, 2016 Scion iA is a Gem

Toyota recently announced it will discontinue its youth-aimed Scion brand, a not so surprising move for one of the world’s top automakers. One of the brand’s newest models, the 2016 Scion iA sedan, will continue as a Toyota model. But it’s not really a Toyota, either. The iA is actually built by Mazda and sold elsewhere as the Mazda2, a […]

2015 Nissan Juke NISMO RS: In Odd We Trust

My next-door neighbor occasionally flags me down to check out the Ride of the Week. He recently mentioned that he prefers cars that are a bit offbeat, a sentiment I can certainly appreciate. He and I aren’t the only ones. Bruce Weiner, owner of the now-closed-to-the-public Microcar Museum in Madison, Georgia, reportedly turned to weird little cars after becoming bored […]

2015 BMW M4 Convertible: Feel-It Fly

I opened the passenger-side door of the BMW M4 and flipped the front seat forward. My six-year-old daughter climbed into her booster seat in the back and buckled up, and I jumped in the driver seat and hit the starter. I glanced in the rearview mirror to see her expressionless face as she waited for me to get on the […]

2014 Scion FR-S: Underpowered or just right?

The 2014 Scion FR-S is a real sports car. Just consider the attributes listed in the Wikipedia entry for “sports car”: small (check: the 2014 Scion FR-S is certainly not a large vehicle) usually two-seater (check: the FR-S is a 2+2, but the rear seats are tiny) two-door (check) “designed for spirited performance and nimble handling” (check: this is a purpose-built […]

2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Edition 507: Street Art

This little monster is among the last of Mercedes-Benz models to receive a naturally-aspirated AMG V8. New, turbocharged motors power everything from CLA-class to S-class AMG models, and a new 4.0-liter twin-turbo makes up to 503 horsepower in the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car. The broad switch to turbocharged engines for the AMG lineup just makes this 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG […]

2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport: Luxury Features, Affordable Price

What constitutes a luxury vehicle? Is it an esteemed nameplate with a long history of producing fine automobiles, like Mercedes-Benz or Cadillac? Is it technology like the electric propulsion system of a Tesla? Or do certain features define a luxury vehicle, like a panoramic sunroof or a heated steering wheel? If the last definition is your idea of luxury, you […]

2014 Ford Fiesta SFE: Go Small or Go Home

When I heard about Ford’s new-to-the-U.S. three-cylinder EcoBoost engine available on the subcompact Fiesta, I was intrigued. The tiny, 1.0-liter turbocharged motor is lightweight yet relatively powerful, and Europeans – both auto experts and everyday drivers – have raved about it for years. But beyond this interesting engine, my expectations for the 2014 Ford Fiesta SFE were modest. This is […]

I’m posting from inside a 2015 Buick LaCrosse with 4G LTE

I’m sitting inside a 2015 Buick LaCrosse as I write this. This vehicle is equipped with 4G LTE from OnStar, which turns the car into a wireless hotspot. If you use your call like a mobile office, consider a model from Buick or one of 30 other 2015 model year GM vehicles offering the technology.

2014 Porsche Cayman S Review: Best Sports Car at Any Price?

Precision. That’s the word that kept coming to mind as a drove the 2014 Porsche Cayman S. This is a sports car that delivers precise performance in every aspect, from the fit of the well-bolstered seats to the crisp gear changes and glorious mid-mounted six. A colleague said the Cayman S may be “the best sports car at any price,” […]

No Atlanta Alfa Romeo Dealer, for Now…

Chrysler announced 82 U.S. franchise Fiat and Maserati dealers that will sell Alfa Romeo models when the Italian brand makes its return to the U.S. The list includes dealers in 33 states including one in Savannah, Georgia. Unfortunately for the city too busy to hate, Chrysler has not included an Atlanta Alfa Romeo dealer, at least for now. That’s a […]
