Sedan

Acura’s ILX instead comes with a handsome exterior and manageable price tag, a button-worshiping and tech-heavy interior, and a lack of space, power and aptitude for fun. There’s nothing like a neutered, well-made, conspicuously moderate car to bring the family together.

If the Verano’s value, comfort and especially its seats deserve an ode, the car’s styling deserves a eulogy. This is where the car fails. This exterior design takes precisely zero chances and reinforces the notion that a Buick is only for people who buy Ensure by the pallet.

Tthe Passat could be poised to grab a solid slice of America’s midsize-car pie. While dull to look at and a bit lazy on the road, the car is comfortable, well-made and competitively priced.

Wagon/CUV

From the outside, the 2010 Subaru Outback looks as if your run-of-the-mill station wagon. But climb inside and voila! Suddenly you’re in an SUV, with the same field of vision and command of the road.

Hatchback

For denizens of Big Bear’s slopes or voyagers on Malibu’s Backbone trail, this 2012 Impreza hits all the marks. Although it’s a little noisy at times, the car as a whole is as functional, well-built and economical as it’s ever been.

SUV/Truck

Ford’s SVT did a fine job channeling its dark side when creating the Raptor. The company has created a niche in the pickup truck market, and it should have no trouble dominating it.

SUV/Truck

The goal of the Touareg Hybrid is to give buyers V-8 power with V-6 fuel economy. If you’re comfortable spending $61,000 on an SUV that says VW on the outside but implies Audi on the inside, the Touareg Hybrid is easy to live with.

While the 2011 Chrysler 300 doesn’t have the braggadocio of its predecessor, frankly it’s better off without it. In its place is a more refined, more able-bodied competitor for the full-size segment it already has on the ropes.

The GS 350 is best judged from the driver’s seat, or anywhere else in the excellent cabin. Yet step outside and view the car, and that coherence dissolves. Passion involves focus and risk, both of which the GS needs more of.

The 2012 Hyundai Accent takes all the metrics that the auto-buying denizens of the world actually need and rolls them into one not-so-giant ball of pragmatism.

The 2012 CR-V has a degree of styling and refinement that just didn’t exist in the three previous generations. It also rides and handles with confidence born out of recent engineering and development.
