For all of its sales significance, the 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer ES we recently took for a spin doesn’t feel like an automaker’s pride and joy.the Lancer is slowly sliding further behind its ever-evolving, better-quality peers.

Sure, if you really want to “go rogue,” pick up a Nissan Rogue Krom. But if making a bold statement isn’t your MO, the cheaper, more attractive, and no less competent standard editions are the better way to go.

For the handful of drivers wanting a relatively rare CUV that ruffles few feathers, has room for seven, and proudly touts 74.4 cubic-feet of cargo capacity, the current Tribeca should stay on their Potential Buy radars.

We’d bet though that if you stuck a driver into a debadged version and let them go drive around for an hour, they’d never guess it was an Avenger. Nicely done Dodge, and way to live up to a name.

A vehicle’s quickness ultimately takes a backseat to how much fuel it gulps, its everyday usefulness, and its bottom-line price, three factors the Forte SX excels at. Throw in some handsome looks, and what Kia now has is the hatchback it always wanted.

The Infiniti JX has obviously struck a chord with wealthy drivers looking for luxury crossover without an A in front of its name. It may have taken some time to get here, but for a certain type of buyer, the smart alternative could not have arrived soon enough.
