Middleburg, Virginia is only an hour’s drive outside of metropolitan Washington, D.C., but it is a world apart from the hustle and bustle of our nation’s fair capital. Instead of crowded city streets where cabs, buses and bicycles vie for space between tall buildings, there are two-lane country roads meandering their way around horse farms […]
The 2014 Volvo XC60 is a mid-size crossover/SUV that has distinguished styling, an extensive list of safety equipment, and all-weather capability. Handsome and chiseled from almost any angle, the XC60 defies the stodgy look of its Swedish wagon brethren and carries a certain savoir faire attitude. The interior is distinctly Scandinavian — with its floating center stack, dial-operated console, and supportive leather seats that are comfortable for hours — it has a look and feel that can match up to the best European cabins on the road today.
The desert-racing-inspired SVT Raptor stands apart from all other pickup trucks and we go full throttle at Miller Motorsports Park doing jumps and rock climbing.

The new 2015 Outback continues with the same basic recipe, but offers a few tweaks here and there to help perfect the formula.
We tested the 2014 IS F sedan and came away both impressed and a little disappointed with this 4-door rocket. Overall, at $67.5k as equipped, the 417hp Lexus is priced mid-pack compared to the competition: BMW M3, Mercedes C63 AMG Sport, and Audi RS 5. The Lexus IS F isn’t without its flaws and quirks, but it is a fantastic sport sedan offering track-inspired performance.
