R&T Overview:

Kia has taken the once so-so Rio subcompact and turned it into a contender in this increasingly crowded marketplace. Right off, you notice the more sporty, sophisticated exterior styling, thanks to new sculpted contours and a posture that makes a 1.6-liter car look fun. Inside, the Rio delivers high marks for its class. The design not only ensures you won’t be bored behind the wheel, the newly extended wheelbase offers expanded passenger room. Fuel economy gets a boost with the 1.6-liter Gasoline Direct Injection engine when equipped with Idle Stop and Go system, which shuts off the engine when the car is at rest. There are three trim models: LX, EX and SX. Unfortunately, for driving aficionados, the 6-speed manual is only available in the LX, while EX and SX get the mandatory 6-speed automatic. Choose the Rio 5-Door hatchback…really.

R&T Overview:

With a small dealer network and low profile in the automotive market, Suzuki needs superior product to break through the clutter. Luckily, that's just what they have in the award-winning Kizashi midsize sedan. Built as straightforward transportation, the Kizashi delivers more than its price point suggests. Styling is good inside and out, the mechanicals contemporary and the features extensive. An all-wheel-drive version is available, and a new leather and heated seating package has been added to the popular SE trim level. The sportster GTS with manual transmission is dieting this year by deleting its sunroof and power passenger seat; those items remain in the automatic. Also unchanged are the headlining SLS Sport and entry-level S.

R&T Overview:

Following a refreshed look last year, the big news for 2013 is a wider choice of engines.

A 340-bhp 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 is also available with the option of an all-new awd system, which Jaguar calls Instinctive All-Wheel Drive. All XF models receive a new ZF 8-speed automatic transmission. V-6 and V-8 models now have the Auto Stop/Start system to further improve fuel economy. A New Speed Pack option for the XFR is available with suspension and aerodynamic improvements to boost its top speed from 155 mph to 174 mph. The XF family also receives the new Meridian audio system and upgraded navigation and infotainment systems.

R&T Overview:

The big news for this classically sensuous Grand Tourer is the addition of the XKR-S, which is Jaguar’s most powerful road car ever. The engine is based on the supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 in the XKR but revised mapping delivers 550 bhp and a massive 502 lb.-ft. of torque, giving it a 0–60-mph time of 4.2 seconds. All XK models utilize Active Dynamic technology, which continuously adjusts ride and handling characteristics. Both the XKR and the XKR-S also have Jaguar’s Active Differential Control to help provide grip. The suspension in the XKR-S is further upgraded beyond that found in the XKR. All XK models get some minor exterior and interior changes while the XKR gets other design cues to differentiate it from the “base” XK.

R&T Overview:

Mercedes-Benz fired a salvo into the compact luxury crossover segment when it introduced the GLK350 three years ago. With competitive pricing, typically robust Mercedes build-quality and GL-Class-inspired styling, it found plenty of takers. The unchanged lineup for 2012 offers a 268-bhp V-6 paired with a 7-speed automatic and rear- or 4Matic awd. Equipped with the latter, the GLK is in its element on wet or snowy roads, but is not happy climbing boulders. The cabin offers comfortable seating for five along with luxury cues like Burl Walnut trim, dual-zone climate control and a central controller for the dash-mounted infotainment display. Ample options include an AMG styling package, Comand with navigation, full-leather seating and a panorama roof.
