2015 Infiniti Q70, Q70L: Now Available in Sizes Big and Bigger [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 16th, 2014 
Mid-cycle updates rarely extend to foundations, but the updated Q70 (that’s the old M sedan for those who aren’t fluent in Infiniti-speak) is an exception. Infiniti unveiled two versions of its top-of-the-line sedan at this week’s New York auto show: one with the same dimensions as the 2014 model, another—the Q70L—significantly stretched.

2016 Mercedes-AMG GT Lacks Benz Name, Has Neat Interior [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 16th, 2014 
That AMG’s forthcoming sports car would be called GT wasn’t one of the industry’s better-kept secrets. But there was one piece of information about the car that was unexpected: Its official name is Mercedes-AMG GT, which is in contrast to the outgoing SLS, whose full name is Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

High Style: 2015 Kia Sedona Gets a Serious Schreyer-Inspired Makeover [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 15th, 2014 
Just a day after we posted a not-unemotional video on the passing of the VW Kombi, the spiritual progenitor to the modern minivan, we received our first detailed information on the newest of the breed, the 2015 Kia Sedona. Coincidence? Probably. But while the Sedona is almost certain to never attain the cult status of […] 
 
 
2015 Chevrolet Trax: The Buick Encore’s Sister Act [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 15th, 2014 
With a corporate portfolio as large as GM’s, there are options. Remember the Chevrolet Orlando? That crossover was supposed to come to the U.S. before GM decided it might cannibalize sales of the mid-size Equinox, so it shuffled the Orlando off to Canada instead. The Trax, on the other hand, was not supposed to come […] 
 
 
2015 Mini Countryman: The Big Mini Now Looks More Like the Little Mini [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 15th, 2014 
In European cities, its sheer size can be intimidating, and even the company itself admits that the Countryman is “the big Mini.” But despite the snickering of purists, this car is a success in the market.

2015 Nissan Murano: Flamboyantly Dancing Into the Typically Boring Mid-Size Crossover Segment [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 15th, 2014 
Nissan’s “Innovation that Excites” marketing tagline often falls a bit flat—we’re still searching for any excitement or innovation in the Versa or Sentra, for example—but in the case of the 2015 Murano, it’s right on the money. Whether or not you think the Murano is attractive, its design certainly couldn’t be called derivative or boring. […]

Aston Martin’s DB9 has never looked tired at any point during the 10-plus years it’s been with us, but that doesn’t change the fact that, aside for some minor updates and one thorough refresh for 2013, it’s still a 10-year-old car—a 10-year-old car that’s being hawked to people accustomed to buying new six-figure cars every […]

Despite being packed to the gills with modern technology, allowing customers to drastically reduce their monthly fuel costs, and, in some markets, providing access to carpool lanes, one of the chief complaints about the Chevrolet Volt is that it’s too expensive to buy. Even after slashing the price to $34,995 last summer, the Volt simply […]

Years ago, during an Audi press conference at the Los Angeles auto show, a German executive declared of the second-generation TT Roadster, “It features a hybrid construction of aluminum und schteel!” The earnest, Germanic passion behind the statement was enough to make one giggle regardless of the words, but it was a pretty big deal […] 
 
 
Watch the Volkswagen Kombi Reflect on Its Life, Try Not to Cry  Apr 14th, 2014 
Dr. Bob Hieronimus didn’t go to Woodstock himself, preferring to stay in Baltimore and work on a mural commission at Johns Hopkins.

2015 Volkswagen Jetta: Improved, If Only Incrementally [2014 New York Auto Show]  Apr 13th, 2014 
When the current Jetta bowed nearly four years ago, Volkswagen loyalists moaned and howled over its decontented nature—a ploy on VW of America’s part to take a more serious bite out of C-segment sedan sales.
