The 2020 Nissan Maxima Platinum.

I drove a $46,000 Nissan Maxima to find out if this stalwart sedan lives up to its 4-decade reputation — here’s the verdict

The 2020 Maxima should keep loyalists happy, but the four-door competes in a tough segment that's been shrinking as consumers switch to SUVs.
The Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400.

I drove a $60,000 Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 all-wheel-drive sport sedan to find out if it could combine luxury, tech, and fun — here’s th...

Good, not great.

Say hello to the new Sentra!

Nissan has kept it simple with the eighth generation of this stalwart sedan: There is but one engine available, a 149-horsepower four-cylinder.
What a wagon!

I drove a $41,000 Subaru Outback to see if the ultimate SUV alternative is still the king of suburban wagons — here’s the verdict

Subaru has been steadily perfecting its mighty wagon since the mid-1990s. The sixth generation might be the best yet.
The Kia Soul GT looks cool.

I drove a $29,000 Kia Soul GT-Line — and although I warmed up to the crossover SUV, it was ultimately disappointing

The Soul GT-Line gives up too much speed to fuel economy, a regrettable bargain, but it did wind up being fun to drive around corners.
The BMW 840i Gran Coupe has a sleek fastback design.

I drove a $101,000 BMW 840i Grand Coupe to find out if this luxury 4-door is the best Bimmer money can buy — here’s the verdict

My test car was luxurious and dashing, and its inline six-cylinder engine served up better performance than I was expecting.
