Some call the California a mixed message from Ferrari. There’s no denying the California is a Ferrari, but it’s one that mixes the old with the new.

Fast, elegant and comfortable, the new 2011 Jaguar XJ might just steal your heart away…from Bentley. Get ready to love this new generation of Jaguars.

SUV/Truck

As sporting as the line of Porsche SUVs are, the role of the Cayenne GTS in the company’s words is to be the sportiest. And, frankly, it is one of the best SUVs for those who really enjoy dynamic driving and still value the option to deviate from the paved roads of urban chaos—even if they never do.

Acura has implemented changes in the 2nd generation RDX that better targets the needs of real buyers. Treading softer and more efficiently isn’t necessarily a bad thing, especially if it’s what your audience is into.

With all the bases apparently covered, I’d be surprised if fans of the previous BMW 6 series don’t immediately take to the new 2012 6 Series Convertible.

Even with its mild weight gain and inherent loss of torsional rigidity, there are definite gains enjoyed with this new Roadster, which further underscores Mini’s reputation for building cars that are perhaps best described as front-drive Nirvana.

All in all, though, the ILX is a vehicle that ultimately makes sense as it expands the Acura brand to new buyers that want to graduate to a premium car without breaking the bank. We see it as a step toward reviving the Acuras we so fondly remember driving.

In the realm of people movers, the Chevrolet Traverse is one of those vehicles whose design makes sense the instant you enter the cabin. It is a comfortable city cruiser, but this is a vehicle that weighs nearly two tons, and mass is a difficult to hide.
