The Evo is the one happy place in Mitsubishi's U.S. lineup right now, so it's no wonder the company continues to polish its little jewel. For 2006, we have the Evo IX (that's Nine, for anyone who flunked Roman numerals in math), and it's tweaked slightly versus today's Evo VIII.
The Azera, which arrives this fall to replace the current XG350, is evidencethat Kia and Hyundai are serious players in the global auto industry. Theinterior quality was stellar, with fits and finishes and materials that putthe new BMW 3-series to shame.

The latest 3-series, codenamed E90, replaces the best-selling E46 that went on sale in 1998. Fortunately for BMW fans, the exterior styling isn't as controversial as the 5-, 6-, and 7-series that preceded it, although the interior looks cheaper to our eyes than the outgoing one.
