Toyota 860 Special Edition 86 Hits Dealerships

It’s safe to say that the Toyota 86 — formerly known as the Scion FR-S — is one of our favorite vehicles released in the past few years. And to keep the car fresh, the company has just announced that an 860 Special Edition 86 is on the way. Now, even in base form, the 86 is a fantastic package. While its 200-horsepower engine doesn’t produce mind-melting amounts of poke, at around 2,700 pounds, the car is relatively svelte, so it doesn’t need much motivation. We’ve spend several fun afternoons…

Head to Head: 2017 Mazda3 vs. 2017 Hyundai Elantra GT

For driving enthusiasts on a budget, Mazda has long been a beacon of light. The company’s venerable MX-5 — it’s OK if you still call it the Miata — is routinely mentioned as one of the most fun cars you can drive at any price level, and it holds the crown of most-produced sports car in history. That said, it’s been a generation since Korean upstart Hyundai landed on our shores, and the brand’s transformation from purveyor of sub-par econo-boxes to genuine threat to the status quo has been nothing…

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

If there’s anything the last few years have proven? It’s that we’re living in the era of the muscle car — and the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT is just more evidence. Now, some enthusiasts think muscle cars are synonymous with the 1960s, but that’s sepia-toned nostalgia. The Pontiac GTO — widely regarded as the first example of the breed — was launched in 1964, but by the early 1970s, increasingly strict EPA clean air restrictions saw these beasts being phased out, and we entered the malaise era.
