Driven: 2013 Dodge Dart

Not only is the Dart better than the kinsmen that barely helped Dodge make it to 2013 as a still-going concern, but it’s actually a fair bit better to drive than the sexy-as-hell Alfa Romeo on which it is broadly based.

Driven: 2013 Scion FR-S

And we should add that—after experiencing a bevy of canyon, track and highway miles—we’re pretty confident the Scion FR-S is not for every sports car buyer, despite its excellence. If you’re seriously interested in this car, you’ll want to stay tuned and understand why.

Driven: 2013 Acura RDX

With that as background, it would be difficult to rate this 2013 RDX as anything but a direct bullseye for Acura’s development team. This new crossover sort of “joins the herd” in terms of overall character and performance, and then immediately attempts to gain separation in the more traditional arenas of ride quality, content, fuel economy, and price.

Driven: 2011 Infiniti G25x

We reported briefly on Infiniti’s entry-class G sedan last fall, when Rex Roy drove the rear-drive G25 in close proximity to the range-topping IPL G Coupe. As is often the case when two similar, yet critically different, cars are driven back to back, we found the G25 to be lacking in urge, if still respectable in the handling department. Given the gap in time from that reporting until now, and the fact that Infiniti delivered its all-wheel-drive G25 to our offices this week, we thought a double dip was fully in order.

Come along for the ride as we take Infiniti’s all new performance hybrid out for a spin around the block. A more stirring experience than most hybrids can manage, to be sure.

Driven: 2012 BMW 1-Series M Coupe (Prototype)

We’ll always have a simmering adoration for the original M3 that brightened our world back in 1985. That M3 had nearly ideal proportions and still looks so tempting to the eye. It remains a blast to drive, too. That is, whenever BMW lets us take out one of its perfectly maintained museum pieces and tells us to have at it.
