If the throttle and transmission were as good as the rest of the car, the E63 AMG wouldn’t just be the rarest car Mercedes-Benz makes—it would be the greatest.

Coupe

Ride, handling, acceleration and even interior aren’t the point of the Cadillac CTS Coupe. Style is, and in that regard Cadillac has grand-slammed it. All of the competing Germans and Japanese two-doors simply can’t hold a candle to the Coupe’s glorious lines.

The XTS is mostly good looking and has a posh interior, suspect cabin controls, a carryover drivetrain, and a magic carpet ride thanks to GM’s groundbreaking Magnetic Ride Control and torque-steer cancelling HiPer front struts.

The Ford Escape Titanium nets you seemingly every bell and whistle known to man. My only gripe is how it looks. Be that as it may, most people really seem to like the new exterior. And even more folks will like owning such a high-quality compact CUV.

What we’ve got here is a pretty compelling, good-looking, sporty handling, inexpensive crossover. Like its cousin the Hyundai Tucson, this represents great value when compared to competition like the RAV4, CR-V and Escape.

Sedan

For the corner-carving set, there’s no question that the lighter, much more tossable M37S is the Infiniti to get. However, if big, wafting, luxurious road trips are your thing, you’ve got to choose the M56S.

Wagon/CUV

The Prius V is a fine, well-thought-out vehicle. It’s much better to drive than any other Prius, and it can haul as much as a small CUV and get a combined 42 mpg while doing so.

Whereas the old tC was simply a smartly styled, semi-sporty value proposition, the new car is actually quite an eye opener — as in, we weren’t expecting to like the 2011 Scion tC as much as we did. Luckily we like surprises.

The newest big-dog Challenger SRT8 392 feels like a rocket sled. And we’d like to tip our hats to Dodge for keeping her naturally aspirated, proving once again that there’s no replacement for displacement.

The 2012 Beetle is one of those cars that was not simply built to move people, but rather because some people love cars. It will never command its own chapter in the big book of automotive history. But it’s not a bad footnote.

While the mechanical work is all well and good, if there’s any place the old Durango needed polishing, it was inside the cabin. That’s why the 2011 been completely redesigned with higher-quality materials, tighter panel gaps, and fewer seams.
