Coupe

The IPL G Coupe feels like what you’d expect: a slightly hotter and very well-rounded Infiniti G37. The ride is a little firmer, but not harsh. Turn-in is precise but not darty.

The 2012 SLK’s driving experience was a good one. It did, however, leave us wondering about the lighter SLK250, which is down by more than 100 pounds and weight distribution should be closer to 50/50.

The G25, with Its 2.5-liter VQ engine, is otherwise nearly identical to the larger-engined G37. It still bests the BMW 328i on the features front, offering things such as an extra gear in the transmission and Xenon lamps for more than $2,000 less.

The planted feel of the Mercedes C350’s chassis, the quietness of the interior and the abundance of save-your-distracted-butt technologies make good first impressions for buyers shopping for this class of vehicle.

The 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX could be an easy, practical performance car to live with. In most people’s real lives – as opposed to their fantasies – 265 horsepower is plenty, making the WRX STI’s extra 40 hp seem superfluous.

The 2011 Durango R/T is immediately comfortable and easy to drive. The interior is quiet, the seats supportive and all major controls work as designed. This new Durango is no old-school dinosaur.

Ford radically alters the fifth-generation Explorer, ditching body-on-frame construction and pickup truck mechanicals for fuel economy and enhanced safety features in a seven-passenger body that doesn’t look like a minivan.

Minivan

Because they deliver on practicality, minivans survived the age of the SUV and seem to be holding their own against the onslaught of crossovers. Designed purposefully for families, the 2011 Quest is absolutely competitive with the segment’s other new entries.

Kia is now on its third-generation of Sportage. For 2011, everything is new. And better. Not perfect. But better. Better looking. Better driving. The only thing that’s the same is the value offered by most models.

Not that many years ago, trucks with the capability to tow eight tons were not comfortable every day drivers. The 2010 Ram 2500 and 3500 HDs are. Taxpayers should hope that truck buyers give the new Dodges a look. The payoff could be substantial.

This new, seven-passenger model, due in dealerships this winter, couldn’t be more different from the Explorers that preceded it. It’s clear that the Explorer has evolved. We’ll have to wait to see whether public perception of this redesigned SUV will change in turn.

Bottom line: If you must drive a full-size luxury SUV, the $76,000 (base) Cadillac Escalade Hybrid gives you some cover with your environmentally oriented friends.
