2012 BMW X5 M

BMW's X5 M is astonishingly fun to drive for a while. There's ludicrous thrust from the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 and ample stopping power from the 15.6-inch front and 15.2-inch rear brakes.

2012 Honda Civic Si Sedan HPT

This car is fast. Well, it feels fast thanks to the fact that the Si is naturally aspirated versus its turbocharged competition.

2012 Mazda3 S Grand Touring Sedan

The Mazda 3's new-for-2012 fascia is a welcome improvement. The 3 looks sharper and more mature now that the smiley-face designs are gone.

2011 Land Rover Range Rover HSE

Outside, the Range Rover is elegant and muscular at the same time. It's styling is much tamer than competitors like the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne, but it's still an attention-grabber.

2011 Mazda RX-8 R3

Let's not mess about, mince words, or try to be coy about it: the RX-8 is fantastic.

2011 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4

The Toyota 4Runner is something of an artifact in today's automotive landscape. It rides on a beefy truck platform, whereas most competitors have switched to lighter unibody designs.

After testing the all-new-for-2011 Elantra earlier this year, we applauded the liberal amounts of style and equipment Hyundai had brought to its compact sedan.

2012 Volkswagen CC LUX Limited

We love Volkswagen's six-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and we also love Volkswagen's omnipresent turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4.

2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

The Challenger sure looks and sounds great, but don't expect to see much out of the slim greenhouse. But then again, that's not what this car is about - it's about cruising, 0-to-60-mph sprints, and that addictive V-8 rumble.

2011 Jaguar XKR Convertible

We really love the way Jaguar products drive. We really hate the touch-screen infotainment system and pretty much any other electrical item on the car.
