The more I drove that car, the more I loved it, and the more I understood why so many people love the Honda Civic even though, I still maintain, it has been surpassed by so many rivals in exterior and interior styling.

The 2011 Infiniti M37, available with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, is a fine automobile. Its interior of leather and Japanese-ash wood trim bespeaks luxury with taste.

The 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is the first small Chevy in 20 years designed to be better than the competition. It has better fuel economy than its rivals, better utility than most of them, and it is put together as well as all of them.

Don’t let its looks fool you. The Mazda3 is addictive, arguably as much fun to drive as a more powerful and expensive automobile. It is engineering magic performed with lightweight materials.

The 2010 Volkswagen Jetta TDi sedan is far more than the sum of its parts. It is proof that economy and efficiency need not be in conflict with fun-to-drive.

I’ve found the perfect urban wagon for young couples and families. It’s also ideal for empty-nesters. Meet the 2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD, the most complete compact crossover-utility vehicle I’ve driven to date.

The Tucson showed me that Hyundai understands that most automotive consumers, especially those in need of family transportation, look primarily for affordability, safety, fuel economy, comfort and reliability.

Honda’s stylists might have displeased more conservative customers with the new Odyssey’s rakish exterior. But its interior ergonomics are the best of any minivan available in the U.S. market, and the new Odyssey is fun to drive!

Hatchback

I love the Fiat 500 Sport. It is a commuter designed for playing hooky, a sparkling bean of a car seemingly more toy than passenger conveyance, yet one serious in all respects of an automobile.

The emphasis in the 2012 CR-V is on utility simply rendered. Everything is where you want and need it. I truly like this one. There is something organic about it — a wagon that becomes an integral part of you each time you drive it.

The overall improved design, engineering and build quality of the new Sonic justifies every penny of its higher cost over the Aveo. But the Sonic gains little in value-for-dollar bragging rights.
