Coupe

Even if g-forces don’t blow up and lap times resist slipping in this new Competition Package M3, it’s the hard-core, all-natural feeling that makes it the best $2500 you can spend on the model. Retaining the M3’s everyday practicality and comfort should make the buy all the more sweeter.

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.

Dodge has finally done the Avenger right. The midsizer now offers the performance, comfort, and appeal to help move it into class contention. Consider the shortcomings of yesteryear’s model avenged.

Does the C-Max Hybrid give the Prius V a run for its fuel-efficient money? If you’re a car nut who enjoys stylish five-passenger road machines, you already know the answer. And you’ll be insisting on a ride very soon.

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.

Wwhile Infiniti may be fashionably late to the luxury hybrid party, this technology-stuffed, sporty hybrid sedan certainly looks as though it will be a green machine worth keeping on the guest list.

Coupe

It is easy to understand why the XKR-S should be extremely popular with Jaguar fans, with its uncharacteristic speed and lithe cornering abilities. And when it comes to rarity, bombshell looks, and a truly earth-shaking voice, this cat’s got them all beat.

Hatchback

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.
