Review: New Car Model
Pros And Cons

Here's a list of some of the more popular and highly regarded cars on the market (more to be added soon). The review information focuses primarily on the positives and negatives of each vehicle as well as its retail and dealer invoice prices.

If you are interested in any particular vehicle, each article also links to information detailing what has proven to be the best money-saving new car buying strategy possible.


Acura:

2013 Acura ILX: Acura has introduced an all new, entry-level, luxury compact sedan in the 2013 ILX. Smaller and costing less than the TSX, it's targeting buyers interested in something more upscale and sportier than a traditional sedan while also avoiding the higher price commitment of a typical luxury car ...


BMW:

2014 BMW X1: The wagon-like BMW X1 is a fairly new entrant in the compact luxury crossover class, having made its debut just last year. But just like that, it quickly vaulted to a segment leader level thanks to a small package which still delivers an impressively sporty performance, luxurious surroundings, decent gas mileage and even respectable functionality ....

2013 BMW 3-Series: The BMW 3-Series is one of the most renowned sport sedans on the planet and the best-selling luxury car in the United States. The 2013 version, while also possessing a few negative characteristics, will likely continue its position at the top of the leaderboard in its class ...


Cadillac:

2013 Cadillac ATS: Here's something very unusual: a topnotch compact sport sedan manufactured by a U.S. auto company. Well, the all-new Cadillac ATS fits in quite well with its more renowned, and typically European, counterparts ...

2013 Cadillac CTS: The CTS sedan was one of the cars having a significant impact on turning things around for Cadillac as they successfully refashioned a more edgy, youthful and fun-to-drive brand. And today, it still offers lots of appeal, including a distinctive and attractive interior with high-grade materials and plenty of high-tech features, while also offering capable handling and solid power from its larger 3.6-liter V6 engine. ...


Chevrolet:

2013 Chevy Cruze: The compact car segment had long been dominated by entrenched favorites, including the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. Well, the time was ripe for change by 2011 as upstart competitors caught up to stagnant leaders, and the fuel-efficient, capable-handling and affordably-priced Chevy Cruze burst onto the scene ...

2013 Chevy Equinox: In a very competitive compact crossover SUV segment, the 2013 Chevy Equinox still manages to reside among the top picks thanks to its nice balance of stylish design, versatility, refinement and comfort ...

2013 Chevy Malibu: The Chevrolet Malibu has long been a "pretty good" choice in the family sedan market. But with its total redesign this year, including significant improvements in overall refinement, available features and fuel economy, the new Malibu is now right up there with the segment leaders ...


Ford:

2013 Ford Edge: The new Ford Edge represents an appealing middle ground for those seeking SUV functionality but who also value maneuverability and decent gas mileage over three-row accommodations. The Edge offers an attractive and well-equipped cabin as well ...

2013 Ford Escape: For years the Ford Escape has been a solid choice in the small crossover SUV segment. But with a major redesign for the 2013 model, the Escape has elevated its standing still further as one of the very top choices in a segment loaded with strong rivals ...

2013 Ford Explorer: Way back when, the Ford Explorer was one of the key players in earning the SUV a special place in the hearts of American drivers (and families). And its immense popularity continues today thanks to its very capable road manners, upscale cabin and excellent safety ratings ...

2013 Ford F-150: In addition to appealing qualities such as strong engines and a comfortable cabin, the F-150 is also America's top-selling pickup due to its myriad of available trims and powertrain combinations ...

2013 Ford Focus: With last year's total redesign, the Ford Focus has become one of the very best small cars available. It simply exudes the character and class of a car which should be more expensive ...

2013 Ford Mustang: New upgrades this year include standard xenon headlights with LED accents, painted rocker panels, revised front and rear fascias including a new Shelby-inspired grille, updated taillights and functioning hood vents. Inside, the ...


Honda:

2015 Honda Models

2014 Honda Accord: The latest Accord follows last year's much needed, and heralded, major redesign. It successfully reestablished the Accord as a clear midsize sedan segment frontrunner thanks to its abundant features, capable handling, comfortable drive and excellent fuel economy ...

2013 Honda Accord: The new, ninth-generation Accord, introduced for the 2013 model year, has successfully addressed some of the aging issues of its predecessor. This latest and slightly smaller version offers an updated cabin, improved handling and class-leading fuel economy ....

2013 Honda Civic: The Honda Civic is back! After being matched and even surpassed by strong competitors in recent years (even after last year's uninspiring revisions), this year's upgrades have taken on its previous weaknesses and added improvements that once again place it among the very best values available ...

2014 Honda CR-V: The Honda CR-V has been the best-selling compact crossover SUV in recent years for good reason ... in fact, there are a host of good reasons ...

2013 Honda CR-V: The Honda CR-V has long been found at the top of the leaderboard in the compact crossover SUV category ... and the 2013 version offers more of the same. Even in a segment where the competition has stiffened significantly in recent years, the CR-V continues to excel thanks to its family-friendly functionality, long feature list, pleasant driving experience and excellent fuel economy ...

2013 Honda Odyssey: While many seem deadset against even considering the purchase of a minivan, primarily for esthetic or lack-of-fun perceptions. The truth is, they are often the best available choice for active moms and dads who find themselves seemingly always toting around family, carpooling, shopping, transporting little leaguers, girl scouts, and so forth ...


Hyundai:

2015 Hyundai Models

2013 Hyundai Elantra: The Hyundai Elantra is one of the most improved cars out there over the last decade, culminating in a dramatic inside-and-out makeover in 2011. The 2013 Elantra can now clearly be counted among the very best picks in the compact car segment, having passed by traditional leaders from Toyota and Honda by offering superior styling, performance, features and value ...

2013 Hyundai Sonata: The 2013 Sonata is simply less expensive than its rivals, while even the base GLS model comes standard with features such as remote power door locks, power mirrors, heated mirrors, one-touch power windows, air-conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, Bluetooth, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, wheel locks, a trip computer, a 60/40-split rear seatback, four-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), stability control, traction control ...


Jeep:

2015 Jeep Models

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee: The 2013 Grand Cherokee possesses an overall upscale look and feel, not very surprising since it still shares some of the Mercedes-Benz ML genes injected during the DaimlerChrysler ownership years. But even with its higher refinement level, it still excels in challenging off-road situations ...


Kia:

2013 Kia Optima: The Optima's overall positives would include its stunning design, powerful and fuel-efficient engines, an attractive cabin, an abundance of features, excellent crash test scores, a long warranty and an impressive value. On the downside, its overall negatives would include tight headroom, elevated SX ride firmness and noise level, as well as uninspiring handling with the hybrid ...


Mazda:

2013 Mazda 3: The 2013 Mazda 3 is simply one of the top compact cars in its class. Blessed with athletic road manners, a distinctive and sporty look, and a fiesty yet super fuel-efficient engine choice, the new Mazda 3 is a rare commodity, offering both a "fun-to-drive" personality and good fuel economy at a relatively affordable price ...

2013 Mazda 6: As in previous model years, the 2013 Mazda 6 once again demonstrates that the words "boring" or "bland" are not necessarily applicable to all family sedans. The fact is, with its sporty looks and athletic road manners, the 6 offers one of this segment's strongest appeals to drivers who want more than one typically expects from a traditional family sedan ...


Nissan:

2014 Nissan Altima: Already highly regarded as a "family sedan" that is actually fun to drive, last year's design update made it both safer and more comfortable as well. And while it may have trimmed back just a bit of its athleticism to do so, this midsize sedan still impresses with its road manners ...

2013 Nissan Altima: This year's Altima was on the receiving end of a total redesign. It's not that the last version had glaring deficiencies, however, because it was already solidly among the family sedan segment leaders. Instead, the newest Altima has simply improved to a still higher standard ...

2013 Nissan Rogue: The Nissan Rogue's popularity stems from its appealing blend of capable and smooth-riding road manners with the space and cargo versatility of a compact crossover SUV, while also offering a sharp and distinctive exterior ...


Subaru:

2013 Subaru Impreza: With its major redesign last year, the Impreza was transformed from essentially a "one trick pony" (all-wheel drive) to a much more rounded choice, thanks to its composed and comfortable ride quality, spacious interior, improved cabin materials and excellent fuel economy for an all-wheel drive vehicle ...

2013 Subaru Outback: The Subaru Outback is actually closer to an SUV than it is a wagon thanks to its generous interior space and secure all-wheel-drive handling. And while often mounted with canoes, bikes or kayaks, it still manages to offer the superior fuel economy and overall driving comfort of a sedan ...


Toyota:

2013 Toyota Camry: The new Toyota Camry is noted for its lively engines, comfortable ride, long list of features and more, but one of several tradeoffs include some interior quality issues ...

2013 Toyota Corolla: The Toyota Corolla has a long (40-year) and well-proven track record of providing a highly dependable and relatively affordable compact sedan with solid fuel economy. But while the 2013 version again offers more of the same and will again likely prove to be a very competent choice, the market has changed in recent years ...


Volkswagen:

2013 Volkswagen Jetta And TDI: Following the Jetta's significant redesign and price reduction two years ago, with the intent of making it more mainstream, it nonetheless continues to offer one of the most spacious interiors in the small sedan segment ...

2014 Volkswagen Passat: The family midsize sedan segment is just plain flush with good choices. But as the only "European" brand, the Passat offers its own unique take on what a family sedan should be; an appealing blend of performance, quality and design. It also offers a turbocharged diesel variant, the TDI, with outstanding fuel economy that's on par with hybrid sedans ...

2013 Volkswagen Passat: Although manufactured in Tennessee and designed specifically for "American" tastes, the Passat still stands out from the pack with a certain "European" upscale flair and refinement that makes it unique in the midsize family sedan segment ...
