2004 All-Star: Sports Car

The two-seat roadster segment is based largely on impulse and emotion. New roadsters sell well for a few years until they are deemed passe by the mix of enthusiasts and poseurs who consume them.

2004 All-Star: Coupe

The risky and ambitious RX-8 is the rear-wheel-drive flagship of a new wave of greatness from Mazda. Most obviously, it looks special, with two rear half-doors that swing back to give unusual access to the snug rear cabin. Kids fit back there, and they love it back there.

Car Awards

2004 All-Star: Small Sport Utility

The Element may be the progeny of an unholy union between an ice cream truck and a Honda Civic, but it clearly received the best parts from each parent: Honda engineering meets boxy-but-useful dimensions.

2004 All-Star: Family Car

The Mazda 6 is not the most perfectly polished car in its class, or the roomiest, or even the most powerful. But it is the one family sedan that will bring a smile to your face every time you get in and drive, the only one that is designed to appeal to enthusiast drivers.

2004 All-Star: Pickup Truck

When Nissan decided to build a full-size pickup, rather than pussyfooting around as Toyota has done for a decade, this Japanese automaker zeroed in on the target: Detroit, where big trucks equal big profits.

2004 All-Star: Small Car

2004 All-Star: Luxury Car Under $40,000

If you are intensely aware of the difference between what is simply very good and what is genuinely excellent, if you love to drive yet are constrained to run a four- or five-seat vehicle, not the mid-engined two-seater of your dreams, then BMW 3-series cars are the perfect answer.

2004 Man of the Year

Mazda is currently producing the kind of cars we love at Automobile Magazine--affordable, stylish products with real character. Just think of the outgoing Protege, the 6, and the RX-8. Without Martin Leach, those cars never would have happened.
