    Five 1992 4WD Minivans vs. Alaska’s Dalton Highway

    From the March 1992 issue of Car and Driver. Alaskan’s advice on driving the Dalton Highway in November: “Take spare windshields and tires. Take money.

    2000 BMW 323i Wagon Brings Practicality Without Penalty

    From the September 2000 issue of Car and Driver. You may have noticed that almost every station-wagon introduction in the past few years has inspired observations about wagons making a comeback.

    2021 Dodge Durango SRT 392 Makes Powerful Sense

    Sensible probably doesn’t spring to mind when you think of the Dodge Durango SRT 392. For one thing, under its hood is a big 6.4-liter V-8 that pumps out 475 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It also weighs 5457 pounds, and it costs $64,490 to start. A Toyota RAV4 it is not. But Dodge’s […] More

    UPDATE 1/14/21: This review has been updated with test results. Hyundai says its N performance division is named for its Namyang proving ground in Korea and Germany’s Nürburgring, but the team involved probably would tell you it stands for No Sleep.

    2021 Mini John Cooper Works GP Sets a Record

    Mini is counting on 3000 buyers to think that a two-door Mini hardtop with 301 horsepower, carbon-fiber fender flares, and a $45,750 price is an irresistibly good idea. The Mini Cooper JCW GP is certainly a novel idea. Replacing the regular John Cooper Works’ 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is a tweaked 301-hp version of that […] More

  • Aston vs. Ferrari vs. Porsche in the Year 2000

    Aston vs. Ferrari vs. Porsche in the Year 2000

    From the September 2000 issue of Car and Driver. Fed chairman Alan Greenspan has been tapping the brakes lately, but that doesn’t mean you have to. Summer’s here, Europe’s famous fast-car makers are pushing the envelope harder than ever, and if you make your money the old-fashioned way—that is to say, you’re not a dotcommer—then […] More

    2020 Porsche 718 Boxster T Handles It All

    Sports cars don’t ride this well. After a few miles, disbelief turns to awe. You see, this Porsche Boxster T is aimed directly at the lunatic fringe of car buyers who crave the sportiest handling in a base Boxster. We had a short drive of a European-spec Boxster T in 2019, but we’ve now spent […] More

    2019 Tesla Model 3 Long-Term Road Test: 20,000-Mile Update

    20,000-Mile Update With more than a year and 24,000 miles logged with our Tesla Model 3, we’re way past the honeymoon phase. Our initial 12 months of included premium connectivity has expired, which means in-car audio and video streaming now only works with a Wi-Fi connection. And since not one of our area Superchargers has […] More

  • 2000 Nissan Frontier SC Crew Cab Gains Much-Needed Power

    2000 Nissan Frontier SC Crew Cab Gains Much-Needed Power

    From the September 2000 issue of Car and Driver. After floundering for the past five years, Nissan appears to be back in the game.

    2007 Luxury Performance Sedan Comparison

    From the November 2006 issue of Car and Driver. In 1976, country bard Tom T. Hall summarized the fundamental needs of men advancing into what is politely called middle age. The song was “Faster Horses,” and Hall’s refrain boiled life down to the essentials of the slightly older guy. The contestants in this comparison seem […] More

    2021 Mercedes-Benz Metris Weekender: Four-Wheeled Escapism

    If you’re going to have an adventure, you’ll want to be familiar with sunk-cost bias. It’s the idea that if you’ve spent a lot of time, money, or energy trying to accomplish a goal, you’ll be inclined to keep at it even if quitting is the wiser move. You know Green Boots, the man whose […] More

    2021 Mazda 3 2.5 Turbo vs. Audi A4 45

    Marc UrbanoCar and Driver You may not know that Mazda attempted a Lexus-style subbrand of its own in the early 1990s. That’s because the automaker has mostly succeeded in quashing the story of its failed luxury spinoff, Amati, that collapsed with Japan’s economy and never saw the light of day. But while we’ll never know […] More
