Head to Head: 2017 Honda Fit vs. 2017 Toyota Yaris

The battle between Honda and Toyota is probably best described as a Japanese version of the longstanding rivalry between Chevy and Ford. At this point, Toyota doesn’t make a high-end sports car like Honda’s — technically, Acura’s — NSX,  but otherwise the two automotive giants go toe to toe in every segment of the market. And like their American counterparts, each has a devout circle of devotees who simply wouldn’t think of buying anything other than a Honda or a Toyota. But for our AutoNation readers who are open minded,…

2018 Dodge Durango SRT: 0 to 60 MPH in 4.4 Seconds

Now, some enthusiasts think muscle cars are synonymous with the 1960s, but that’s sepia-toned nostalgia.

Conventional wisdom says you’ll be safer in a big, beefy vehicle. So score one for fans of old-school reasoning, as the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty recently earned a five-star NHTSA crash rating. For those playing along at home, that’s perfect. As in can’t get any better. Now, it’s worth noting modern cars have become safer thanks more to brains than to brawn. The bevy of electronic nannies — think traction control, ABS, collision avoidance systems — present make them less likely to get into an accident in the first place. And…

The Porsche Panamera Wagon is Finally, Finally Here

OK, so maybe the Porsche Panamera wagon isn’t at your local AutoNation Porsche dealer just yet. But Stuttgart has unveiled the production model at the Geneva Motor Show, so we know it’s actually a real thing. It’s called the 2018 Panamera Sport Turismo. Hallelujah. To say Porsche fans — and enthusiasts in general — have been waiting for a long-roof version of the Panamera is a bit of an understatement. The faithful have been calling for it since before the four-door sedan’s debut nearly a decade ago, and only intensified after…

Lexus LC Could Get 600-Horsepower Twin Turbo V-8

The Lexus LC 500 stunned attendees when it debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in January, and now we’ve learned the company is readying a 600-horsepower, twin-turbo V-8 to power top-spec F models. The news comes via our friends at Car & Driver, which said a source inside Lexus described the potent power plant as two 8AR 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines — the kind which currently power the NX 200t — joined together at 90 degrees. Unless you’re as dense as the sound deadening in the LS 500, the message is clear: Lexus isn’t messing…
