First Drive: 2012 Toyota Camry
Is the 2012 Toyota Camry new and special enough to vanquish the Hyundai Sonata? Is the SE model a poor man's sport sedan? Is Toyota's rebound in J.D. Power & Associates' initial quality rankings, and the company's vindication over specious unintended acceleration claims, enough to warrant purchase consideration? Do you experience headaches, dizziness, or nausea when driven swiftly in a sports car?

В If you've answered, "Well, heck, yes!" to any of these questions, get ready for a quiz in which we determine whether you'd notice an all-new seventh-generation model if it used your driveway for a U-turn.

Here are some study materials: Camrys traditionally run two cycles on one platform, and...

First Drive: 2012 Toyota Yaris U.S. Spec
When the Yaris took over for the Echo as Toyota's smallest car in the U.S. in the middle of the last decade, the subcompact realm was barely inhabited. Gas prices were low, SUVs ruled the roads, and GM and Chrysler seemed healthy enough. Back then, the B-segment was just a gleam in most automakers' eyes.

But despite Toyota's long presence in the segment, the Yaris hasn't gotten much love. According to reports, the No. 1 Japanese automaker didn't have the budget for a comprehensive redesign, so the 2012 Toyota Yaris -- the company's third-best-selling vehicle in the world behind Corolla and Camry -- would have to settle for a refresh.

Gone is the bulbous, tadpole-like face that never failed...

Verdict: 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour 4WD
In a landslide vote, the staff has declared the Accord Crosstour an ugly vehicle. The staff later declared that tires are round and proper martinis are made with gin. All foregone conclusions, yes, but each equally worthy of our consideration.

In truth, the Crosstour's appearance was discussed more than any other aspect of the car. Nearly every log entry mentions it, and the entries are rarely flattering. Whether it's the Zamboni nose or the tucked-up tail, or the fact that those two don't work together at all, the staff had plenty to say about the Crosstour's sheetmetal. So there, we've made our case.

There's far more to a car than its outward appearance, and, once our editors stopped carping...

Verdict: 2010 Volkswagen Routan SEL
The Volkswagen Routan isn't like every other minivan on the market today -- it's like two other minivans. With the structure of the Dodge Grand Caravan/Chrysler Town & Country beneath its shiny new skin, the Routan is a mixture of Teutonic ingenuity and Canadian build quality. The result is a baffling vehicle with both eye-popping improvements over the Chrysler duo and forehead-slapping oversights.

Whether or not you agree with VW's decision to restyle its competitor's minivan for the U.S. market rather than build its own from scratch, the German brand did manage to get at least one thing right about the Routan: This people-mover is better-looking than either Chrysler product. Staffers praised...

First Drive: 2013 Lexus GS Prototype
Lexus has a problem. Toyota's luxury brand is -- whisper it -- not cool. The bland smoothness and silence of the current LS and ES models are increasingly appealing to a generation whose idea of a great drive is the back nine at the country club with their retired buddies. The rumbling IS F might be an intriguing AMG-meets-Ginza sport sedan, but the rest of the IS range remains resolutely regarded as a chick car. The lux-by-numbers RX, which has become the brand's leitmotif in the U.S., is now the favored ride of modestly prosperous suburban women of a certain age. (How Toyota squandered the opportunity to define the Lexus brand with the original LS, a car so stunningly well-engineered it sent...

First Drive: 2012 Scion iQ
Inching along in shoulder-to-shoulder rush hour traffic in a roaring city with pedestrians swarming crosswalks -- all while desperately searching for a parking space -- is nobody's idea of a good time. Scion has a proposition for urban dwellers in the form of its new 2012 Scion iQ city car.

The Toyota iQ (the car the Scion is based upon) is not a new car. The Scion version is -- technically. Designed to blend into densely populated cityscapes, the iQ does everything small, but in a big way. Dimensionally, it's slightly bigger than a Smart Fortwo, but it's still a runt when placed next to a Camry. While its size is the iQ's most eye-catching asset, it presents inherent packaging dilemmas. It's...
