Acura RDX A Solid Luxury Crossover With Great Ride

2013 Acura RDX Review: The 2013 Acura RDX is more spacious, more luxurious feeling and a better all-round performer than its predecessor, which was no slouch.

2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 is more than muscle

The 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 clearly is a muscle car. This beast looks the part with sculpted metal – bulging fenders and hood with deep troughs, scooped out door panels and a spoiler on the trunk. But it’s the power the SRT8 packs under the hood that will stress your tendons. The Charger is powered by a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 470 horsepower and similar torque rating. Dodge lists the …

In the near-luxury car corral, it has become an article of faith that you cannot simply ride with the herd; you need a spirited showoff to rope in the customers. Thus it is that BMW has its high-performance M versions of the 3-Series and 1-series. Similarly, there is an AMG version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and an S version of the Audi A4.
