First Test: 2011 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro
Ever since 1995, when the Audi A4 first bowed in the U.S., it has been known as the car with the nice interior. That holds true today, but impressive confines alone don't win sales battles. Last year, Audi sold 34,672 A4s in the States, placing the car somewhere in the middle of the tough premium compact car market. That number was enough to top the Lexus IS and Acura TSX, but the A4 lags behind the Mercedes-Benz C-Class (58,785) and the BMW 3 Series (100,910).

 According to those numbers, Audi's German rivals have a better grasp on what makes the segment tick. But with each new generation of the A4, the folks at Ingolstadt are slowly but surely giving those automakers a reason to look in...

First Drive: 2012 Cadillac SRX
My fellow editors weren't too kind to the Cadillac SRX when they first sampled the crossover in 2009, dinging the 2.8-liter turbo-six's lackluster performance and the suspension's jittery ride. Customers apparently felt the same way -- at least about the 2.8-liter -- which is gone and won't be missed. Despite the early hiccups, the SRX was Cadillac's best-selling model in 2010 and only slightly behind the CTS so far in 2011. We're betting the soon-to-arrive 2012 Cadillac SRX we just took for a spin will push it back to the top in no time.

On the engine side, the 3.0-liter six is also gone, at least in the U.S. (it remains in export models due to displacement-related taxes in several overseas...

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 Nissan Versa Sedan
At 6 feet, 6 inches tall, my half-Norwegian, half-Swedish co-pilot is no small gentleman. At 175.4 inches long, 66.7 inches wide, and 59.6 inches tall, the 2012 Nissan Versa is a relatively small five-passenger sedan. Yet surprisingly, the two work well together. He fits inside the popular B-segment car and his neck isn't kinked at nearly 90 degrees. We're both quite comfortable in the new Nissan.

Comfort was one of four main areas Nissan engineers fast-tracked for improvement on the new Versa. Efficiency, style, and value were the other three as the Versa's engineers built an all-new car from the ground up.

 Producing a spacious cabin and significantly smoother ride that felt more like a...

First Test: 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec
Twenty Benjamins. Two large. Two thousand dollars. Any way you put it, throwing that much cash on top of the Genesis 4.6's $44,500 base price gets you a Hyundai sedan unlike any other. The new 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec touts more power, promises stickier grip, and has the most inappropriate name in Hyundai's modern-day lineup.

Despite what its label may conjure in enthusiasts' minds, the R-Spec isn't a sedan designed to embarrass the curvy-road combatants from Mercedes AMG, Cadillac V, and BMW M. No, the Genesis 5.0 R-Spec is more a sport model than 'Ring racer. That's that.

But the R-Spec is a step in the right direction. It gives the standard Genesis much-needed injections of athleticism...

First Test: 2011 Lexus CT 200h
Scouring Motor Trend's extensive test data, we found just one 2011 model year vehicle that's slower from 0-60 mph than the 2011 Lexus CT 200h - a four-cylinder all-wheel-drive Hyundai Santa Fe GLS. If all you want in an entry-level premium hatchback is highway on-ramp quickness, and you are repulsed by the CT 200h's 10.1-second 0-60 mph time, go get an Audi A3. The Lexus CT 200h is for drivers who appreciate a car that finds a meaningful compromise between speed and efficiency, but leans toward the latter.

 Your opinion on Lexus' new entry-level vehicle will depend on your priorities. A BMW 1 Series or Audi A3 hatchback might provide more driving enjoyment, but the Lexus combines reasonably...

First Test: 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD
Despite being the original Japanese luxury brand, pre-dating Lexus and Infiniti by several years, Acura, with the notable exception of the now legendary NSX, has always been somewhat tentative about its luxury aspirations. Acuras have always been a bit more spartan and purposeful, forsaking some of the more gratuitous frills found on competing offerings. The Acura most resplendent with gadgetry, the RL sedan, is the brand's perennial slowest seller.

The Acura TL sits right in the middle of the Acura family, both in terms of market positioning and sales. The MDX crossover is the undisputed sales king, and the TL jockeys for chart position month-to-month with its smaller cousin, the TSX. Both...

Verdict: 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS
Buick must have been tired of watching Lexus build its reputation on cars that dominate the comfortable luxury sedan segment the American brand once ruled. The ES sedan was Lexus' top-selling vehicle for seven of the first 10 years the brand existed. After more than 20,000 miles with a 2010 LaCrosse, it's clear to us that Buick has crafted a car capable of challenging the popular ES 350.

As a bonus, the LaCrosse looks damn good-and not just for a Buick.

"Stop the presses!" said senior editor Jonny Lieberman. "We parked [the LaCrosse] at a lot on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, catty-corner from the Capital Records building. As I handed the car over to the valet-a guy who, night after night,...

First Test: 2011 Lexus LS 600h L
The stairs leading to the entrance of the Getty Center -- perched above Los Angeles' perpetually gridlocked 405 highway - are long and flat, forcing visitors to slow down and enjoy their rich surroundings. That's what the 2011 Lexus LS 600h L attempts to do in the automotive world. If you want a stimulating luxury flagship car, try a BMW 7 Series or Jaguar XJ. The Lexus LS 600h L wants nothing to do with fast-paced excitement, and that's why it excels.

Lexus wants to play in the full-size luxury sedan class above $100,000, where V-12 powered Mercedes-Benz S-Classes and BMW 7 Series sedans dominate. What distinguishes the Lexus from competitors is its single-minded pursuit of isolating passengers...

First Test: 2011 Lexus IS 250 F Sport
As the present generation Lexus IS nears the end of its lifespan, Toyota's luxury brand has been busy expanding its F Sport offerings for the IS line. The 2011 Lexus IS 250 F Sport we recently had in for testing was equipped with the latest in F Sport gear and is an evolution of the IS 250 F Sport equipped model we drove back in 2008. Without taking F Sport too far, Lexus has crafted a daily driver with an added dose of sport for those looking for a departure from the BMW 328i's of the world.

 The new $2440 F Sport package is sporty without becoming so pricey that owners wonder why they didn't simply spring for an IS 350. Retuned springs and shocks plus summer tires wrapped around the unique...
