The full-sized car just isn’t what it used to be.

Toyota Avalon

The full-sized car just isn’t what it used to be. About two decades ago, the traditional full-sized car was a rear-wheel drive, V8-powered, body-on-frame holdover that went through various design changes towards being modern. Nowadays, they are mostly front-wheel-drive with equally powerful V6 engines and plenty of luxury goodies once found on more expensive models. In the midst of this change is the latest Toyota Avalon.

2013 Honda Accord Sedan

2013 Honda Accord focuses on performance, not looks

Honda’s Accord has become a generic family sedan in America, a car that’s a good value, an excellent performer, but does not stand out. You may never notice the 2013 model, but you may want to own one. While Toyota has added a touch of styling flair to its formerly vanilla Camry and Ford has leapt forward with its new Fusion design, Honda stays with its safe, bland look, coupled …

Hyundai Pumps Up The Fun With Veloster Turbo

2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Review: Hyundai wasn’t happy to leave well enough alone, and added a turbo to its sporty coupe/hatch, the Veloster.

It’s the same 1.6-liter direct-injected engine, but with …

Volkswagen’s CC Offers Midsize Luxury At Fair Price

2013 Volkswagen CC When Volkswagen launched its sporty CC in 2009 it went head-to-head with its own Passat, which was then a dowdy midsize sedan that was in need of a restyling. Now, Passat is coming off a face-lift last year to thin its body to blend more with the other midsize sedans that sell well: Toyota’s Camry, Honda’s Accord, Ford’s Fusion and Chevrolet’s Malibu. So the CC, which VW …

Chevy’s Malibu Is Stylish, Smooth

Chevrolet continues to impress with nearly every new model, or revamped model it launches, and the latest Chevy Malibu is no exception. The tweaked styling makes the Malibu more like a Camry, especially from the rear. To me, that’s a good thing as the current Camry is the most stylish it has been in years. I tested a sharp-looking metallic crystal red Malibu in 1LZ trim, which is near the …
