All-Star: 2007 Infiniti G35
Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Infiniti G35

If the BMW 3-series is the Goliath of entry-luxury sport sedans--and who would argue that it is not?--then the latest Infiniti G35 is the closest thing to a David that BMW's competitors have yet produced. Many stones have been slung at the giant Philistine's f

All-Star: Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Car Awards

All-Star: Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Ever since interest in front-engine, exotic sports cars revived, we've been waiting for a truly memorable automobile, something that would capture the spirit of our time, just as the Ferrari 365GTB/4 Daytona did in its time. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is that

All-Star: 2007 Lotus Elise
Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Lotus Elise

At a time when every new car is bigger, heavier, roomier, more comfortable, more luxurious, more tech-laden, and more removed from the act of driving, the Lotus Elise is an All-Star because it's none of these.

All-Star: 2007 Mazda 3
Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Mazda 3

The Mazda 3 is simply one of the best small cars in the world, absolute proof that small and inexpensive does not have to look or feel it. Mazda's wildly popular 3 is more spacious than a Honda Civic and more stylish than a French car, and it's one of the few

Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Mercedes-Benz S-class

It's dj vu all over again. More than a decade ago, I was tasked with writing a cover story for the U.K.'s Autocar magazine, an article whose headline roared something along the lines of "The Best Luxury Car in the World!" We had gathered together in Michigan

All-Star: 2007 Honda Ridgeline
Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Honda Ridgeline

This nutty truck is the perfect choice for that one useful vehicle in the automotive connoisseur's dream garage. We're sure Honda's design team wasn't thinking nutty when they penned the Ridgeline's oddly carved front flanks, but then, we're not sure what they

Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 Chrysler 300C

There's typically quite a bit of turnover on annual lists of automotive favorites, for the simple reason that cars are always getting better and last year's star might be this year's incentive-laden also-ran. But the Chrysler 300C, three years into production,

All-Star: 2007 BMW 3-series
Car Awards

All-Star: 2007 BMW 3-series

Why are 3-series BMWs so well loved? They are not the best in any single attribute, whether speed, acceleration, fuel economy, space, comfort, quality, or appearance. But they are better than all others at doing everything extremely well, because they've been

All-Star: Mini Cooper
Car Awards

All-Star: Mini Cooper

This modestly priced, front-wheel-drive hatchback with great fuel economy is actually an exotic sports car in disguise and yet can still function as simple transportation.
