The McLaren accomplishes what it sets out to do, namely providing an incredible driving experience while increasing usability. Could you drive the MP4-12C daily? You sure could. Would you want to? We would, gladly.

The FR-S is about driving dynamics that are some of the best we’ve experienced, combined with an affordable price and a total package that can be used for both the weekday commute and the weekend track session. Scion nailed this one.

Like at Porsche, we couldn’t care less what Maserati needs to sell to pay the bills, as long as it continues to build cars like the GranTurismo MC.

You might be tempted to think of the new base-level A8 as something of an A8 Lite; a car that offers less for less money. But you’d be wrong. We like the new entry-level A8 for reducing the price without sacrificing performance.

Once you drive the ML63, you’ll never turn back. It hits all the right buttons for someone who needs a do-it-all utility vehicle and has a little coin to splurge on some luxury. It also has more torque than a Lamborghini Aventador.

It’s the engine that really makes the SL63 AMG, but those looking for a little more connection to the road will be disappointed. Overall, we wished the SL63 was a bit more involving to drive.

Much of what made the original RDX feel special — the firm ride, turbo antics, and crisp handling — are gone from this 2013 version, but don’t despair. The new RDX is more mature for a more mature buyer.

The Panamera S Hybrid is not only be the most fuel-efficient vehicle Porsche has ever offered, but also the fastest production hybrid vehicle in the world. We’re in a brave new world, and it’s one Porsche is embracing.

A strong engine doesn’t necessarily make a strong car, but the Malibu does benefit from the addition of a Turbo model. With plenty of power, a comfortable ride, and a few conveniences, buyers without much need for rear seat room should find plenty to like.

In the end, it’s clear Lexus didn’t set out to redefine the luxury sedan with the 2013 LS. Still, a large number of small improvements help keep the LS relevant in a market that Lexus itself says is slowly melting.

The Toyota Avalon’s raison d’etre is quite simple: Provide a full-size sedan packed with luxury features for a price the average workingman can afford. And the Avalon does that job even more admirably for 2011 with a recent redesign.

One of the best features of the ML350 is that beyond its practicality, the all-wheel-drive sport ’ute also is among the top in its class when it comes to driving experience.
