Transcendent: 2015 Chrysler 300C

The American sedan is dying. Full size sedans are downsizing their powerplants, shuffling their drive wheels, and wholly being usurped by crossovers. The era of big, rear-drive sedans with large displacement V8s seems to be waning. Ford has been out of the game for years. The Chevrolet SS, […]

One Day: McLaren 650S Spider

“Do you have any experience in a supercar?” That’s a loaded question. Every enthusiast hopes to get behind the wheel of a supercar one day. But the question itself implies that driving a supercar is very different from any other car. And you might think it is. You […]

Spicy: 2015 Audi S3

Our first impression of the Audi A3 was that of a younger, sprightlier A4. Its smart styling and compact packaging are reminiscent of the A4’s formative years – a time when it wasn’t encumbered by the bloatware built into the modern luxury sedan. For 2015, Audi has given the […]

A Little Extra: 2015 VW GTI

32 years ago, Volkswagen paired a sporty fuel-injected four-cylinder engine with its Golf hatchback. The combination sparked a revolution and coined the “hot hatch” phrase. 2015 marks the launch of the 7th generation GTI, and it arrives at dealerships with a trophy case of awards. Winning Motor Trend’s […]

All-In-One: 2015 Audi SQ5

While sitting at a red light, minding my own business, I couldn’t help but notice the guy next to me sizing up the Audi with those “I can take it” eyes. He didn’t know what he was getting himself into. Not all CUVs are made equal, which is […]
