2014 Mazda3Mazda has really been on a hot streak. The CX-5 crossover SUV and the Mazda6 sedan have both fared very well in magazine comparison tests. Consumers have supported those wins at the showroom. The all-new Mazda3 compact sedan is another big winner. The company’s best-selling model scores high in all categories: design, construction quality, interior roominess, fuel efficiency, and handling proficiency. read more »

2014 Honda PilotIn contrast to many recently redesigned, and restyled large crossover competitors, the 2014 Honda Pilot SUV is relatively unchanged since the second-generation Pilot debuted back in 2009. While its age is a disadvantage in a few key areas, its major plus is ample room inside, which continues to make the 2014 Pilot a solid choice for buyers needing seating for eight and more than a little flexible cargo space. read more »

2014 Chevy MalibuWhile the Chevrolet Malibu was all-new for 2013, its reception from buyers was somewhat lukewarm, and at one point, dealers were actually selling more discounted 2012 models than new 2013s. Chevy quickly worked up a significant list of refinements and changes for its important 2014 midsize sedan — including a revised engine, suspension and upgrades to the rear-seat interior space. The intent of the makeover was to further improve fuel economy, comfort, ride quality and handling over 2013. It succeeds in part thanks to upgraded chassis and suspension components borrowed from Chevy’s larger Impala sedan. read more »

2014 Acura MDXSeven-passenger SUVs have improved dramatically from those early truck-based, gas-guzzling monsters like big-block V-8 ’70s/’80s Suburbans and first generation V-10 Excursions. Minimal sound insulation, harsh ride dynamics, and single or low double-digit fuel economy figures are a faint memory thanks to the current generation of innovative SUVs such as the 2014 Acura MDX. read more »

2014 Mazda 6With a retooled powertrain, more standard features, and a striking new design, the 2014 Mazda6 is a worthy alternative to the plethora of boring, look alike, family sedans. Everything from bold exterior lines inspired by Mazda’s Shinari concept car, to the powertrain, to the manufacturing process, are all-new.

The front-wheel drive Mazda6 utilizes Mazda’s Skyactive technology — a collection of technologies and weight reduction strategies that debuted on the CX-5 crossover. read more »

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRTThe Jeep image has always been one of ruggedness. The brand is so synonymous with off road performance that people unfamiliar with a particular SUV’s identity are most apt to call it “a Jeep type vehicle.” Jeep’s stellar reputation was established during World War II and maintained and enhanced in both civilian and military markets ever since.

In addition to their underlying toughness, modern Jeep products have become increasingly sophisticated and luxurious. Among the various Jeep products the Grand Cherokee is the outright leader in combining high tech performance, luxury, utility, and all-weather safety with legendary off road capability. read more »
