"The best way to think of the X4 is as a BMW sports sedan that happens to have a bit more ground clearance, a station wagon body, and a crossover’s capability. It is, first and foremost, a Driving Machine and hence returns strong dynamics on the road."
When we first saw the 2015 BMW X4, we were skeptical about how marketable a car like this could be. It is, after all, basically an all-wheel drive station wagon.

Peter Mullin of the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California shows Jay his teardrop coupe. Often considered one of the most beautiful cars of all time, Mullin’s coupe is one of only nine built. This is about as awesome as it gets.

In today's Thursday Throwdown, we look at luxury full-sized sedans. Most of our picks are in the higher end of the luxury market with one noted exception. Some of these vehicles may be a surprise while others would likely make most “best of” lists in this segment.

In today's Thursday Throwdown, we are looking at station wagons. The field of wagons has seen a lot of change since the station wagons that dominated driveways in the 1970s. Today, wagons are on a comeback as more offerings begin to enter the field.

As the Toyota Yaris struggles for market relevance, the company’s younger brand, Scion, has introduced a new four- and five-door sedan as competition for the beleaguered Yaris.
