2016 Acura ILX Review – Autoblog

Autoblog drives the refreshed 2016 Acura ILX: Gone is the meager base 150-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder, replaced with a 2.4-liter mill that produces 201 hp and 180 pound-feet of torque. The new engine produces a third more stallions than its predecessor thanks to the displacement bump, reduced weight and friction, an increased compression ratio, and various […]

Jalopnik reviews the 2013 Pathfinder and writes: The Pathfinder is a genuinely good, practical, economical car — making it a great buy if you’re in the market for a medium sized SUV. It’s perfectly capable of conquering a bit of wet tarmac and, of course, it’ll even handle some snow, too. So stop pretending you […]

Some of the first 2013 Altima reviews are out. TTAC reviews the 2013 Nissan Altima and comes away with this: The 2013 Nissan Altima isn’t cheap, and it doesn’t stand out from the crowd aside from offering the highest EPA numbers and (only on a fully loaded car) a multi-talented rearview camera. But even without […]

Autoblog, lucky bunch that they are, reviewed the 2011 Porsche Cayenne S and had this to say: With the Cayenne I sampled only the V8, but drove a Touareg with the V6 in 280-horsepoweer tune immediately beforehand. While the V8 is quicker and more sonorous than the V6, it doesn’t transform the Cayenne like it does […]

2012 Hyundai Genesis Review – TTAC

TTAC reviews the 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec, the baddest Genesis of them all, and has this to say: Oversteer can’t be dialed in nearly as progressively or intuitively as in a BMW or GM vehicle with right-wheel-drive.

Autoblog checks out a 2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i and writes this: Most annoyingly, throttle tip-in is noticeably sluggish. More than once after nosing the X3 out to snag a gap in quick traffic, we found ourselves with an indecisive vehicle and angry oncomings. The throttle doesn’t just choke during clutch plays, either – the initial […]
