First Drive: 2012 Volkswagen Jetta GLI
In the first five generations it was pretty easy to comprehensively sum up the difference between a Golf and a Jetta: One had a trunk. The sixth-generation Jetta has established its own identity in the Volkswagen product line as a bigger, more mass-market-friendly car. Now, the differences between the two run much deeper. Mechanically and spiritually, the Jetta stands apart from its former fraternal twin the Golf. It makes sense the 2012 Jetta GLI would follow suit and differentiate itself from its Golf-based brethren, the GTI.

 Although the sixth-gen Jetta has seen record sales volumes since its introduction last year, longtime fans were let down by the newest offering. In an effort to compete...

Quick Drive: 2013 Mazda CX-5 Prototype
REYKJAVIK, ICELAND -- "Skyactiv" finally makes sense. This October, an updated, 40-mpg (highway) Mazda3 with the brand's new gas direct-injection, 2.0-liter four, and six-speed manual or automatic gets the Skyactiv badge thanks to all those goodies. Afterwards, only Mazda's all-new models will wear the badge, which will be used in a manner similar to Mercedes-Benz's Bluetec and Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive. It's a green-branding ploy.

 Unlike either of those two automakers, Mazda is too small to get into hybrids or any type of advanced electric/battery powertrains. The strategy is to concentrate on what most experts say will continue to be the mainstream technology: highly evolved internal...

First Look: 2012 Bentley Continental GTC
We've already sampled the updated 2012 Bentley Continental GT back in April, and now it's time for the drop-top version, the GTC, to take a bow before its debut next month at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Like the coupe, the updates to the 2012 Continental GTC are evolutionary, with many of the differences hiding firmly in the details. The craftsmen (and women) from Crewe applied the same sort of small, careful updates to the convertible that they have for the coupe.

The big news for the convertible is in the open air interior. A new, sweeping dashboard and instrument panel help the GTC's cabin feel more spacious and luxurious. The interior is hand-crafted from the finest soft-touch leather...

First Drive: 2012 Kia Rio
During the driving portion of the 2012 Kia Rio press presentation in South Korea, we visited a phallic-themed, public rest area located off National Route 44. Thankfully there weren't any live ones, but you couldn't escape the wooden and stone phalluses and trinkets standing at attention in the parking lot and gift shop. After distancing ourselves from the giggling European vacationers, we asked about the location's significance.

Our Kia hosts didn't have a backstory for us, and not wanting a nastygram from our IT folks, we didn't attempt to Google from Korea. But we do have answers about the new 2012 Rio, which, like a particular rest stop now seared into memory, is designed to stand out...

Arrival: 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring
No sooner had we said goodbye to our Volkswagen Routan than a new 2011 Honda Odyssey joined our garage. It came loaded with the Touring Elite package with leather interior, navigation with voice recognition, rear-seat entertainment system with a 16.2-inch split screen, and a cool box in the center stack. At the test track, the 248-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 gave us a 7.4-second 0-60-mph run, and it is expected to return 19/28 mpg city/highway. The family-hauler'sall-new exterior styling has received mixed reviews, especially for its "lightning bolt" beltline and gaping sliding door channel.

So why would the Motor Trend staff-especially the photographers-be excited about getting a minivan, of...

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: 2012 Volkswagen Beetle
Want to know the secret to angering the Volkswagen PR guys? Ask them if the brand-new 2012 Beetle "isn't just a GTI in a Halloween costume." They'd sock you one if they could, but luckily, they can't. But they would do well to remember that a large part of Volkswagen history consists of dressing up an existing chassis in a new outfit. After all, what was the VW Type 3 if not a Type 1 with 200 extra CCs, a rubberized subframe, and some new metal? Then you've got the Type 14 Karmann Ghia and -- dare I say it -- the Porsche 356. Point is, there's no great shame in dressing up an existing chassis, especially when Wolfsburg does it. There would only be shame if the newly garbed car weren't any good.

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 Drive: 2011 Volvo C70 T5
Famed philosopher Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might miss it." And what better way to stop and smell the roses than in a convertible? Volvo's C70 makes it very easy to drop the top -- push a button, wait 30-40 seconds, and bathe in the sunshine. It's a lot easier than with traditional soft tops: no levers, no latches, no hooks. Heck, you don't even have to stretch your arms if you don't want to. It's leisure at its best.

 This is not a sports car. It's a comfortable, relaxed cruiser, one of many power retractable hardtops that came out in the mid- to late-2000s. Volkswagen has the Eos, BMW has the 3 Series and Z4,...

First Drive: 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan
Chuck Taylors are far from the best choice for hiking shoes. Especially a worn-out pair with more miles on them than many cars built in the previous decade. This thought is stuck to the top of my skull like a passenger inside an elevator in freefall as I am quickly transferred from a state of vertical to horizontal. I'm in the Austrian woods to drive the revamped 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, but more important, I'm accelerating towards wet, spongy ground that is too much for me and my Chucks. I shouldn't have gotten out of the SUV, because it doesn't seem to be having any problems.

 The Wild Cherry Red Tiguan looks like a waxed metallic forest fire set amongst the mossy trees in what will be an...
