2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe Pictures
If you're an auto enthusiast, you can hardly be faulted for thinking Honda has largely abandoned you. In fact, you might even feel justified in thinking that the once enthusiast-driven company has lost the plot and gone Toyota, ditching drivers' cars for various forays into the hybrid scene and profitable-but-bland people-movers of various shapes and sizes. You might even get depressed when you look at Honda's enthusiast car portfolio circa 2001 and compare it to its portfolio today.
2011 Volkswagen Beetle reborn
Volkswagen will relaunch the iconic Beetle In early 2011. The VW Beetle coupe – scooped here in our latest spy photos – arrives first, followed by the cabriolet later in the year.
The original rear-wheel-drive Beetle sold 21.5 million units over 65 years. Its successor, the front-drive New Beetle launched in 1998 in the United States, soon became the darling of a predominantly female fashion- and lifestyle-oriented clientele which was not even remotely interested in flower power songs or the anti-establishment mantra of the roaring Sixties.

2011 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid Luxury SUV
The idea of a hybrid full-size luxury SUV immediately sparks cognitive dissonance. Hybrids are for sprout-eating environmentalists, aren’t they? And full-size luxury SUVs are for carnivorous conservatives, right?
Enter the 2011 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, the full-size luxury SUV with a two-mode hybrid gasoline-electric powerplant.

2011 Toyota Corolla Photo Gallery
Toyota Corolla - What the Auto Press SaysThe 2011 Toyota Corolla ranks 21 out of 33 Affordable Small Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 31 published reviews and test drives of the Toyota Corolla, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
In a class filled with cars that offer quality, reliability, comfort, good fuel economy and affordability, the Toyota Corolla is merely adequate.
The Corolla is struggling to compete against reliable cars that offer competitive packages that include affordability, top performance and quality cabins. Even though it’s not hard for the competition to top the Corolla, it isn’t a bad car. It’s fuel efficient and performs well, but the interior and overall fit and finish can’t match the Honda Civic or Ford Fiesta. Add a cargo hold that doesn’t match the Honda Fit, and the Corolla is easily forgotten.

2014 Mercedes-Benz GLC
Fast forward to today. Can you name every model line currently offered by Mercedes? (Here's a hint: There are 13 available in the U.S. alone, and three more in Germany.) Better start memorizing now, because it won't get easier: The brand is about to expand its portfolio by at least two more models, both of which are derived from the front-wheel-drive platform of the next A- and B-class.
The Name Game
2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan Teaser Photo Released
Before we continue, it’s worth addressing the future role for the CTS. When that car launched nearly a decade ago, Cadillac pitched it as a rival to the BMW 3-series and Audi A4. (For you history-passionate readers, you can see these three and more duke it out in a comparison test from 2002.) It was always big for that class, though, and the current generation is even larger. The third-gen CTS will again get bigger, and therefore be repositioned as a direct competitor to the BMW 5-series, Audi A6, and Mercedes-Benz E-class.
