2010 GMC Terrain priced from $24,995

2010 GMC TerrainWhen the 2010 GMC Terrain begins rolling out of General Motors' CAMI assembly facility in Ingersoll, Ontario and into dealerships this September, the new CUV will be clutching a $24,999 sticker price (including a $745 destination charge). For that sum, buyers will get GM's latest direct injected four-cylinder engine, in this case displacing 2.4-liters and producing 182 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. Perhaps more importantly, this engine manages to deliver an EPA-estimated 32 miles per gallon on the highway, a class-leading figure. More information


First Drive: 2010 Ford Taurus

2010 Ford TaurusThe Taurus name has never been extended upmarket like this before (let alone in such a waterlogged economy), and it isn't immediately clear who the model's competitors are – a detail that could prove problematic when trying to target customers. The Chicago-built Taurus is no longer a logical Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Chevrolet Malibu cross-shop – that's the Fusion's turf now. In size, technology, and aspirations, Ford is pushing its new sedan several of rungs up the ladder. Is it the right product for the right time? Perhaps of more immediate concern, is it carrying the right name and will Ford be able to overcome the Taurus brand's baggage and sell America on its virtues? More information & pictures


Review: 2010 Lincoln MKZ

2010 Lincoln MKZLincoln has definitely freshened the look of the MKZ both inside and out, and it's a markedly more attractive package than the first generation model. We're not sure if Ford's luxury brand was aiming for the middle, but after a week with the freshly updated MKZ, that's exactly where it finds itself. In terms of styling and performance, the MKZ ends up being a nice alternative for those among us who want something more spirited than a Lexus ES350 and more subdued than a Acura TL. Whether those attributes will help Lincoln steal sales from the competition is another matter. With stellar reliability ratings, solid performance and the most standard features in its class, it should. More information & pictures


2011 Audi R8 Spyder will launch with V10 only, next A8 not coming to Frankfurt

2011 Audi R8 Spyder It's been all but confirmed by Audi that the R8 Spyder is due to debut alongside the new A5 Sportback at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, but according to two reports from Car and Driver, there will be one less vehicle on the show stand in Germany and only one engine available in the drop-top supercar. The 2011 Audi R8 Spyder will reportedly be available with the 525 hp, 5.2-liter V10 at launch -- meaning no V8 -- with a standard six-speed manual gearbox or optional R-tronic automated transmission. The 420 hp, 4.2-liter V8 currently fitted to the standard R8 could be added later. More information


2009 NISMO 370Z officially priced from $39,130

2009 NISMO 370ZThe hardcore NISMO 370Z first appeared in April at the New York Auto Show, but Nissan didn't stick a price tag on it at that time. Those interested in the ultimate in factory Z performance now know that they will have to save up $39,130 in order to get a taste. For that near 40 grand price tag, pretty much everything is included on this late-to-the-party 2009 model. The only options available for the NISMO are back-lit sill plates, carpeted floor mats and a carpeted trunk mat, none of which do anything to make the NISMO any quicker.All of the go-faster bits are included in price of admission, including an upgraded 3.7-liter V6 that bumps power from 332 to 350 horsepower, and torque nudges from 270 to 275 pound-feet. Like the standard Z. More info


Review: 2010 Roush 427R

2010 Roush 427R2010 Ford Mustang has raised the bar for modern day pony cars. The sculpted body, finely tuned suspension, higher quality interior and additional horsepower make it one of the best Stangs to ever come from the Blue Oval's stable. With a flood of aftermarket variants sure to come, we couldn't help but wonder if the new Mustang would provide an even better platform to work with, or if tuners might struggle to improve on an already excellent product. Roush, who were given inside access to the 2010 Mustang by Ford for their own product development, were first to market with their 427R Mustang that was unveiled back in March...

2010 Acura TSX V6

2010 Acura TSX V6Acura's best selling car is not its entry-level model: Acura moves more TLs than anything else in its line-up. And unlike those other brands, Lexus included, all of Acura's offerings carry five-star safety ratings from NHTSA, are rated as top safety picks by the IIHS, and the Automotive Lease Guide has declared that Acura offerings have the best resale value among luxury brands. Now, Honda's premium division has grown by one with the addition of the TSX V6...Acura decided the V6's buyers were looking for sport package identity, they simply wanted more power.

Review: 2009 Lexus IS F

2009 Lexus IS FThe Lexus IS F is the sole Japanese contender in a crowd of compact high-performance sport sedans. Boasting a full complement of performance upgrades, including a 5.0-liter V8 mated to a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, the 416-horsepower sedan blasts to 60 mph in well under five seconds.The interior features sporty bucket seats, revised instrumentation, special trim, and additional standard features. Of course, there are also plenty of "F" emblems and escutcheons on the car to remind you why you paid a base price of $56,610 (our tester rang up at $61,120). ..More information & pictures


2009 Infiniti G37 Convertible starting at $43,850

2009 Infiniti G37 ConvertibleThe seven-speed, automatic-equipped model starts at $43,850, while the six-speed manual model (6MT in Infiniti parlance) with its standard Sport package comes in at $43,900 (both excludes $865 destination and handling). Just for comparison's sake, the BMW 328i starts at $44,550, while the hotter, twin-turbocharged 335i commands $50,700 for the privilege. Package pricing is listed in detail below the fold, but for $3,250, the automatic model can be outfitted with the Premium setup, while opting for the Sport 6MT saves you $200 on the same package.

Review: 2010 Jaguar XFR, XKR

2010 Jaguar XFR, XKR The all-new XJ is due to be revealed next month and go on sale this December, and for the 2010 model year, Jaguar has added two new high-performance models to the mix – the XFR and XKR – along with upgrading the powerplants in its shapely sedan and arresting (pun intended) coupe/convertible.Both the naturally aspirated and supercharged 4.2-liter V8s are gone in the U.S. market for 2010, and in their place is an all-new, Jaguar-developed 5.0-liter direct-injected eight-pot putting out 385 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque.

First Drive: 2010 Lexus HS 250h

2010 Lexus HS 250hThe latest master weapon comes from Lexus in the form of its HS 250h hybrid, claimed to be not only the world's first hybrid-only luxury sedan, but also the most fuel-friendly luxury vehicle extant. If Lexus has it, they put it on this car. Our question was: Would we want to put one in our driveway? Frugal hybrids are here, sports car hybrids are here, and luxury hybrids are dipping wheels in the waters. This car marks the first luxury-only hybrid to make its acquaintance with the public.

Officially Official: Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ400

Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ400The Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ400 has been rumored for months and its finally ready for its close-up before sales begin in the UK this June. In keeping with its NSFW nomenclature, the FQ400 is putting out 403 hp at 6,500 rpm, with peak torque – 387 lb-ft of the stuff – arriving at an oh-so-usable 3,500 rpm. The extra grunt is thanks to a set of high-flow fuel injectors and a new turbo with low friction bearings, an uprated thrust bearing and high temperature turbine that Mitsubishi insists will keep turbo lag at bay.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport production begins

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand SportThe luxury car builder Bugatti’s plant in Molsheim has officially begun production on the ultra exclusive Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport model. The limited edition open air super car will only have a run of 150 units, 30 of which are already spoken for. Bugatti is very selective about inviting members of the public into their ownership club; only the most exclusive clientele will have the chance to buy one. Just like the fixed roof version, the Grand Sport is powered by the same quad turbo W16 that develops 1001 HP. The targa top Veyeron is capable of hitting a top speed of 252 MPH, or 223 MPH with out the roof.More information



Review: 2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE

2009 Land Rover LR2 HSEThe unibody LR2 is actually the heftiest customer of the compact premium class, toting around some 4,250 pounds (competitors generally ring up in the 4,000-4,200 pound range), a number that doesn't bode well for the 3.2-liter inline-six, which only brings 230 horsepower (@ 6,300 rpm) to the party. That's substantially fewer ponies than the LR2's aforementioned adversaries, most of which corral upwards of 260 hp. More info & pictures


Vauxhall Insignia VXR Sports Tourer unveiled

Vauxhall Insignia VXR Sports TourerGM has formally unveiled the Vauxhall Insignia VXR Sports Tourer (a.k.a. the Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer on the other side of the Chunnel). By now, you're probably seen the specs, but we'll go over them again for the sake of being complete. 325 horses are corralled in the 2.8-liter turbo V6 underhood. Yep, that's a six-speed stick you see in the attached photo gallery, and both all-wheel drive and eLSD are standard. Stopping power is supplied by Brembo, the seats are by Recaro, and the overall appearance is liberally sprinkled with awesome. More information & pictures


Fast & Furious Skyline stolen from Hollywood garage

Fast & furious R34 GT-RIt took two years to build it in reality, ten seconds of montage to put it together on screen, and about ten minutes to steal it. In a rare automotive example of life imitating art imitating life, the Nissan Skyline that Paul Walker drove in the latest Fast & Furious movie was stolen from its storage facility in Los Angeles. Although dressed up to look like a full-on R34 GT-R for the movie, the car underneath was actually a lower-spec GT-S.Reports indicate that thieves, evidently knowing the car was inside, broke through a metal door and ripped off that specific car, leaving the rest but sideswiping a Studebaker and a Porsche Boxster on the way out.

Review: 2009 Toyota RAV4 Sport

2009 Toyota RAV4 SportsWanting to cover all the bases, the RAV4 can be had in a variety of configurations, from a basic front-driver with four-cylinder power up to a leather-lined, four-wheel-drive Limited with a silly-powerful V6. A Sport version seeds right in between the base and Limited, carrying a satisfying level of equipment. There's an allure to the big horsepower delivered by the six – especially when it costs as little on EPA ratings as the RAV's 3.5-liter..More info & pictures


2009 BMW Z4 Roadster review

2009 BMW Z4The all-new 2009 BMW Z4 Roadster is the eagerly anticipated replacement to both the Z4 Convertible and Z4 Coupe. Adding to this pressure, the two-seater is also tasked with satisfying the enthusiasts who enjoyed the high-performance M variants, both of which are discontinued – at least for the moment. The all-new 2009 Z4 is BMW's fifth roadster offered during the past two decades. The first model was the late-80's steel and composite two-seat BMW Z1. It never made it to the States, but its influence paved the way for our U.S.-built BMW Z3 in 1996.. More information & pictures


Review: 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1The new ZR1 is truly a daily driver supercar, at least for most days. Even with proper snow tires, it would be extremely unwise to attempt driving a ZR1 in the winter. The ride is comfortable enough, however, that even driving it in Michigan is tolerable, while the grip is sufficient to drive through corners at speeds that would easily get you thrown behind bars. Even the interior – while not up to the standards of Audi or Ferrari – is livable enough as long as the seats get replaced by something better. More info &


Review: 2009 Audi A4 3.2 Quattro

2009 Audi A4 3.2 Quattro So when developing the "all-new" A4, Audi knew it had to hit every note in pitch-perfect harmony. Our First Drive proved that many of the A4's foibles had been left in the past, but until we lived with one for a week, the jury was still sequestered in a hotel, living off an $11 per diem. Now, deliberations are over and we're prepared to deem the 2009 Audi A4 one of the best sports sedans on the market. In fact, the A4 is so good, it's almost boring. More information & pictures


Review: 2009 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8

2009 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8With the introduction of the Tiburon, Hyundai finally dipped its toe into the sports-car segment, but as nice as it was, it simply didn't have the chops to play with the big boys of the performance set. Enter the Genesis Coupe. Hyundai's rear-wheel-drive two-door is the second salvo in the automaker's bid to flesh-out its premium Genesis sub-brand, while at the same time taking direct aim at a field of established competitors ranging from the Ford Mustang to the Infiniti G37. Does the Genesis have what it takes to play the game? We spent a week with a 3.8-liter Track model to find out. More information & pictures

First Drive: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2010 Mercedes-Benz E-ClassThe E-Class' interpretation of the now common form language introduced on the 2006 S-Class is accentuated by four things: the angular cast of the headlamps, which follow the contour of the new SL headlights but are vertically sliced in two; the upper door-line tied thematically around the front helping to break the side into three discretely angled surfaces, working with the prominent, chrome-trimmed lower door line that spans the full distance between the wheel wells, then continues much more subtly around the rear of the car. More information & pictures


Review: 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring

The Touring's sheet metal is also more attractive thanks to a strong character line running the car's length with a concave sweep up to the windows. This line emanates up front behind the large headlights (dig the blue angel eyes on the projector lamps) and combines with some pinched metal running up to the A-pillar to create distinct front fenders and a raised hood. The thin grille sports a chromed corporate 'H' with pride and small chrome eyebrow accents set off the fog-lights in each corner of the front fascia. More information & pictures


Lotus releasing Elise Purist Edition for $43,995

Lotus Elise Purist EditionThe "Purist" edition is an attempt to get the Elise closer to the MSRP it carried when introduced to the U.S. market in 2005. So Lotus has set the price at a slightly more achievable $43,995, or around $3,500 less than a base Elise. However, the "Purist" is hardly a stripper model. Only available in Ardent Red, Monaco White and Saffron Yellow, the entry-level Lotus is still packing the 190-hp, Toyota-source 2ZZ 1.8-liter four and six-speed manual transmission. More info



First Drive: Chevrolet Volt powertrain mule

Chevrolet Volt powertrain muleFor the Volt program, the first-generation powertrain mules were built using previous-generation Malibu body shells with the Voltec (E-Flex) powertrain -- the so-called Mali-Volts we first saw about a year ago. Those vehicles originally ran in late 2007, with the engine-generator and electric motor as well as a small hybrid battery to start development of the powertrain control system. Later, the full Volt T-shaped battery pack was installed and in 2008, the second-generation mules were built using the body of the new Chevy Cruze...More information & pictures


Bugatti celebrates 100 years with four Centenaire specials at Villa d'Este

Bugatti celebrates 100 years with four Centenaire specialsEach of the four one-offs bares a different color to contrast with the chrome fenders, and each honors a different driver from Bugatti's glory days by taking their names. To more clearly emphasize the cars historical linkages, the four Veyrons arrived in Italy accompanied by matching historic Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix racers. One of the most successful race cars in history, the Type 35 racked up some 2,000 race victories over the course of a decade of competition in the inter-war period. More information


Bugatti unleashes four-door Veyron

four door veyronIt's the Veyron for all the family! This is our best look yet at the stunning Bugatti Royale – a four-door four-seater that’s set to take the famous firm into a new market. With the £900,000, 253mph Veyron 16.4 already crowned the world’s most expensive and fastest supercar, Bugatti is seeking to go a step further: it will celebrate its 100th anniversary by unveiling this hyper-saloon at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.More information


Review: 2009 BMW 750i

2009 BMW 750iWith its 400 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque at just 1,800 rpm, the turbo V8 is an ideal power-plant for a big luxury sedan. It's only available with a ZF six-speed automatic transmission, as for the overwhelming majority of people who choose a 7 as their preferred conveyance, a manually-operated clutch wouldn't find favor. But that's not to say the 750i isn't suited to fast driving. On the contrary, even without the sport package, the 7 feels surprisingly nimble for a 4,500 pound vehicle. More information & pictures


Ferrari F142 taking shape

Ferrari F142 taking shapeCAR Magazine is running a new sketch of what they anticipate the newest V8 Ferrari will look like, and we have to say, we're a little disappointed. Internally dubbed the Ferrari F142, Maranello's replacement for the F430 is inching closer to its first public showing, and although we've seen some rather clunky test mules so far, we were hoping that the Italian firm would recapture its former sensual styling glory last seen on the 355 and Challenge Stradale. Some critics might even go back as far as the Dino. More information
