Driven: 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

So how does the Boss 302 shape up as a performance vehicle? Fan-freaking-tastic.

Blog: Winding Road At The Indy 500

There is an anticipation that comes with attending an event like Indy that differs from other things in life. I just got home from Indy yesterday, and I’m already looking forward to the 2013 race. After this year’s race, though, I’m not really sure I’ll ever attend it the way I used to.

List: Top Ten Ultimate Collector BMWs

In the meantime, we’ve drawn up a list of what we think are the best BMWs for collectors in the here and now. We’ve got a wide range of vehicles here, with a variety of body types, along with prices and levels of availability. However, this list is hardly comprehensive. If there’s something that you think deserves to be on here (or something you think has no business here), then be sure to chime in down in the comments section. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

Quick Drive: 2012 Honda CR-V EX

Honda’s CR-V isn’t a bad car. It’s comfortable, safe, reliable, not bad looking, efficient, and has all the creature comforts expected of a vehicle in its segment. It’s an all-around good vehicle if you need a lifted, five-passenger vehicle that can sip fuel. The problem is, it’s like driving water.

Photo Shoot: 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage

For Winding Road Issue 76, in the Under The Hood column, Editor-In-Chief Miersma recounted the week he spent piloting an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Using an exotic sports car as a daily driver is a lottery dream for many of us, and Seyth was fortunate enough to live it (if only for seven days and 1000 miles).

Long-Term Car: Our Mini Gets Its Snow Shoes

As Editor-In-Chief Miersma mentioned in the first impressions of our long-term 2012 Mini Cooper S Coupe, winter rubber will be a must-have for our loaner. Having arrived with a set of Continental ContiProContacts, we certainly weren’t prepared to tackle even the mild winter we’ve had so far, so the quest began to find a suitable set of snow shoes.

Quick Drive: 2012 Toyota Prius V Five

As of today, there’s no question that the Prius V wins within its small market segment. Of course that conclusion is helped along greatly by the fact that it basically has this sliver of the market—a very high-mpg small wagon—to itself.

My Thanksgiving: 2012 BMW 650i Convertible

Despite being a pretty bad long weekend for convertible driving—Michigan offered up a very par-for-the-course November compliment of damp, cold, cloudy days—my Thanksgiving drive did serve as a fine counterpoint experience in the 650i convertible. When I drove the car for the first go-round, it was nothing but top-down and sunny-weather driving through the balmy Mexican countryside. That’s nice and all, but it certainly didn’t give me much of a frame of reference for cold-weather driving in the new 6er, nor really for a lot of top-up stuff.

Quick Drive: 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X SE

My fiancé, Molly, is really used to my having a couple of new cars to test out every week and, like anybody, makes a kind of subconscious judgment about each one as soon as she gets inside for the first time. Of course, even for the experienced driver/passenger, sometimes that means you make snap decisions that are dead wrong.

Quick Drive: 2011 Jaguar XJ Supersport

The new Jaguar XJ line has been a rarity for Winding Road, in that it’s a car that almost every member of our staff agrees about pretty wholeheartedly. With supple but athletic handling, massively good engines, and amazing looks, what’s not to like?

Quick Drive: 2011 Nissan Altima Coupe 2.5 S

Almost every comparable measure would make me opt for Honda’s Accord Coupe over this Altima, with the noticeable exception of exterior styling. The Honda competition has got better gearboxes, more characterful and tuneful engines, better throttle response, and nicer interior fitment. With that said, I think that looks count for a lot in the four-cylinder coupe category, and many buyers will simply be happy with something that looks this good. Styling is huge.

List: Top 15 All-Wheel-Drive Cars From Winding Road’s Involvement Index 2.0

Since we rebooted the Winding Road Involvement Index in Issue 61 of our digital magazine (in which Editor-In-Chief Seyth Miersma gives it a good, explanatory introduction), the list has been growing each month as we rate more and more cars. In this list you see before you today, we showcase the 15 most engaging all-wheel-drive vehicles on Version 2.0.
