Jessie and Aaron test the Honda Fit and the Mazda2 with Beach Balls. Plus, Ryan tests Skyactiv in Canada.
Ryan, Jess and Aaron pit the 2011 Mitsubishi Evolution X versus Acuras TL with SH-AWD and the Audi S4. Which all-wheel-drive sport sedan will come out on top in this 600-mile adventure?
Ryan travels to the Northeast to test Subaru’s all-new 2012 Impreza. It now features a smaller 2.0-liter motor, but also claims to have the best MPG of any AWD car in America. Note that the WRX and STI will not be in this new chassis until MY2013 at the earliest, so this review only applies to the naturally-aspirated Impreza. Those turbo models will remain in their current bodies until the next revisions.
Ryan drives the 2012 Mazda3 with the new Skyactiv drivetrain technology. Is Mazda’s 40mpg really better than other car makers’ 40mpg?
Aaron takes the all-new 2012 Hyundai Veloster along the Columbia George. Does this new coupe deliver both the style and substance it promised?
Ryan, Aaron and Jessica test a pair of 135i’s at the airstrip. Which is better? Modifying an older 2009 or buying a brand-new 2011 BMW 135i?
