Chevrolet Volt


The Chevrolet Volt is an extended-range electric vehicle, one that uses its batteries and motors to power the front wheels, combined with a gasoline engine that only kicks in when electricity is needed. Now in its third year on the market, the Volt goes essentially unchanged since it debuted, which happened through the aftermath of GM's bankruptcy. See our full review of the 2013 Chevrolet Volt...

30 Days Of The Audi Allroad: The Competition


Among family-oriented luxury vehicles, the 2013 Audi Allroad isn't—at least yet—a common choice. Crossover models like the Ford Explorer or Acura MDX certainly are; but if you want just some of the ruggedness of those models, paired with an attitude mode along the lines of a sport wagon, the Allroad is a great starting point—and possibly the model you'll end up with once you go for a drive.

BMW Z4


The BMW Z4 is two-door, two-seat hard-top convertible with rear-wheel drive. It's both sporty and comfortable, and it competes with the Mercedes-Benz SLK, Jaguar F-Type and Porsche Boxster. See our 2013 BMW Z4 review for pricing with options, gas mileage ratings, and specifications Tracing its roots back to the lighter, simpler Z3, the Z4 changed the Miata-fighting tack and grew into a more...

30 Days Of The Audi Allroad: Ride And Handling


2013 Audi allroad

$('#inline_gallery_stripe'+1+' .inline-gallery-thumb').live('click', openPhotoOverlay); Newsletter Stay up to date on car reviews, buying guides, articles and more After spending a few weeks with a 2013 Audi Allroad, we've grown to appreciate how, from choppy, rutted unpaved access roads to nicely surfaced curving blacktop, this stocky wagon manages to handle surprisingly well, without punishing passengers or transmitting too much road noise into the cabin.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG


The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is a two-seat convertible or "gullwing" coupe supercar. Straddling the fence between supercars and sports cars, the SLS is charged with keeping the brand's gullwing heritage current, as well as pave the way for future exotics like the 740-horsepower battery-powered Electric Drive model.

Dodge Durango


The Dodge Durango is a family-friend mid- to large-sized SUV with seating for seven. It's loosely related to the Mercedes-Benz GL Glass, making it a smoother, more comfortable vehicle than Durangos of yore. Nearly everything is better about the new Durango than the past model, and it looks great, too. See our 2013 Dodge Durango review for pricing with options, specifications, and gas mileage...

Mercedes-Benz SL Class


The Mercedes-SL is a two-seat hard-top roadster with gobs of horsepower and impressive handling in the AMG versions. It the SL 550 and the SL 63 AMG models, the car is powered by a twin-turbocharged V-8. The top-tier SL 65 AMG is equipped with a bi-turbo V-12. The SL is one of the most expensive Mercedes products on the road no matter which version you choose, and it competes with the Jaguar XK, Porsche 911, and Bentley Continental GT.

Rolls-Royce Ghost

The Rolls-Royce Ghost is least expensive way to get into Rolls, but that's a relative statement. Priced from $260,000, it's anything but entry-level, and it competes with cars like the Aston Martin Rapide, Bentley Flying Spur, Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and BMW 7-Series. For more information, including specifications, see our page for the 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost Based closely on the 200EX...

Volkswagen Beetle


The Volkswagen Beetle is a three-door hatchback or two-door convertible that comes with ample heritage and plenty of style. It's been available in the U.S. in 1979, but this third-generation Beetle is completely modern. For a more detailed look at the Beetle, see the full review of the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle. Like the second-generation New Beetle before it, the current Beetle is a front-engine...

Rolls-Royce Phantom


The Rolls-Royce Phantom is the brand's flagship sedan, built for the hyper-luxury market. It's a piece of rolling artwork, and each Phantom is meticulously hand-built and opulently equipped. While the Phantom doesn't have a true competitor, the Bentley Mulsanne and the top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz S-Class make for interesting alternatives. For more information, including specifications, see our...

Volkswagen CC


The Volkswagen CC is a mid-size sedan with a stylish, coupe-like profile, simliar to luxury models like the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7. The CC competes with cars ranging from the Nissan Altima to the Audi A4, and it was recently updated for the 2013 model year. For a more detailed look at the CC, see the full review of the 2013 Volkswagen CC. Introduced for the 2009 model year and known...

Man of Steel Movie Review


Full disclosure: I'm a big Superman fan. I get giddy even hearing rumors about a new Superman movie. Let me put it this way: not only did I religiously watch every episode of "Smallville" but I'm actually one of the few that liked "Superman Returns".

Volkswagen Eos

111


The Volkswagen Eos is a four-seat hard-top convertible that flirts with the edge of the luxury market. Despite sharing many components with the Golf, Jetta and previous Passat models, the Eos is a unique car for the VW range with one very unique roof.


For a more detailed look at the Eos, see the full review of the 2013 Volkswagen Eos.


The Eos' unique style and packaging give it few natural competitors; the MINI Cooper S Convertible could be considered an alternative, as could the BMW 1-Series Convertible. The MINI is smaller, and the BMW can be considerably more expensive, however.


Volkswagen pitched the Eos as the successor to its VW Cabriolet model (based on an earlier Golf model) when the car launched back in 2007. That Cabrio had a cloth roof, though, so the Eos was definitely a step up in insulation, weather protection, and comfort. It's also a hit with kids, who will relish watching the folding roof lift up, separate into give panels that nest inside each other, and retract to drop itself into the trunk compartment--all in less than 30 seconds.


The packaging is quite marvelous in the Eos, in fact. Its trunk is reasonably roomy, and the power top won't descend if there's anything in its path. The back seat is, surprisingly, roomy enough for kids—or even shorter adults, for brief stints—and access isn't bad. Wind deflection isn't great at highway speeds, though, so you'll probably travel at speed with the top up.


The Volkswagen Eos hasn't changed a great deal since its 2007 launch, except for some changes to trim levels and the loss of the VR6 engine option. All models include a pop-up roll bar plus head and thorax side bags, along with more standard features than you'll find on VW's other small cars.


This year, there's only a single engine offered in the Eos: a 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (2.0T), here paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or the optional, and excellent, six-speed automated manual (DSG) gearbox.


The first two years of Eos also offered as an option VW's 250-hp, 3.2-liter VR6, which came only with the DSG. What it gained in smoothness and exhaust note, however, the V6 gave up in fuel economy--it was much thirstier--and it really didn't feel much faster on the road. The current engine does well on fuel economy, with EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway.


On newer versions Bluetooth has been made standard and larger wheels have helped spruce up the Eos' appearance somewhat. And for 2013, VW furthered that by introduced a new Sport trim, with a lowered suspension, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, fog lamps, and special 18-inch alloy wheels, plus a touch-screen audio system.


Handling and roadholding are better than the car's conservative exterior might suggest. The Eos is a better-tuned, better-balanced vehicle than all the smaller cars in VW's lineup except for the GTI—and it's considerably more refined than that hot hatch. Ride quality in the Eos is also supple and composed, especially for such a short vehicle.

Gunpoint review


There's nothing new under the videogames sun, perhaps, but indie action/hacking game Gunpoint confidently proves that it is at least possible to shine a different light on familiar concepts.

Take hacking, for instance - usually in the vaguely irritating real of number-matching or maze-solving minigames. In this future-noir 2D game, it takes on far more prominence, and dispenses with complexity and tedium in favour of big results.

BMW unveils all-new 2014 4-Series Coupe, and also subtly confirms return of the 8-Series?


BMW sought the opportunity to unveil their all-new 3-Series…*ahem*…I mean, 4-Series Coupe, which is in essence, despite the name, supposed to be a 3-Series coupe successor. This is in BMW’s effort to rework their nomenclature, stating that all vehicles within their lineup that are coupes will be even number models, while the odd-number models will be sedans at minimum.

Apple MacBook Air 13in (Mid-2013) review: true laptop longevity now available

G-Technology G-DRIVE 4TB review: high-performace USB 3.0 hard drive


G-Technology offers a range of smart external storage, styled to blend with professional Apple Mac hardware. Most of the G-Technology desktop models now feature two- or four-disk RAID for peak performance and capacity, but a single-disk unit like the G-DRIVE can still offer vast storage, and at a keener price point.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z review: super slim Android tablet


Sony has had two attempts at making a high-end Android tablet. The previous Xperia tablets weren’t overly impressive and very much became one of the crowd. The firm aims to correct all this with the Xperia Tablet Z.

Emcee review - software adds Mission Control to Windows 8


Years after its debut, Mission Control (formerly known as Exposé) remains one of Mac OS X's most distinctive features. It allows you to to lay out miniature copies of all of your windows on the screen at once, making it both useful and pretty. Microsoft briefly experimented with a fancy task switcher of its own for Windows, called Flip 3D, but the feature was retired in Windows 8, along with the Start button and other familiar fixtures. See all software reviews.

Sony Xperia M preview


Sony is clearly aiming to have an Android phone at every price point and its latest effort is the Xperia M. This is a budget-conscious smartphone that's likely to have a very competitive price tag when it officially hits the shelves in the coming months.

SearchYourCloud review - an able companion to online storage


SearchYourCloud is free for 14 days, after which you'll have to pay £15 to keep using it. That price may seem a bit steep, but business folks especially are likely to find the convenience and security that it offers worth the cost... but only if they're using a supported cloud service. That's because SearchYourCloud doesn't work with every cloud-based storage service out there: Right now it's limited to Dropbox and Box, and offers plugins for connecting with Exchange and Sharepoint. The company plans to add support for Google Drive and SkyDrive, which will greatly enhance its appeal, but has not offered a timeline. See all software reviews.

For the 2014 year, the new Cadillac CTS sedan starts at $46,025 with the $995 destination fee, which is about $7,000 more than the last generation model.

Audi to be the first to implement INRIX Park assist, but not the kind that actually parks the car itself


Automobile manufacturers adopting the use of parking assistants is nothing new—especially with cars as basic as the Ford Focus coming with a system that actually parks the car itself. However, Audi is taking a rather different route.

Photo Rendering: This is what the potential Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG coupe could possibly look like


We’ve heard through the pipeline before that Mercedes-Benz is planning to produce an AMGified E-Class Coupe and Convertible after conceding that their failure to do so the first time around was a major mistake.

Considering that the E-Class lineup was just recently redesigned, an artist over at Virtuel-car.com has decided to create a rendering of the potential Mercedes-Benz E63 Coupe could look like. And we think that this wouldn’t be too far off.

Video: Apple reveals iOS for the Car, slew of automakers already confirmed for integration

Well, not quite, but this is fairly automotive related, as Apple has officially announced that they’ll be integrating iOS in a variety of automobiles from around the world.

Sony SRS-BTX500 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review

Apparently, we're all very busy. We're all going somewhere and have no time for tethered entertainment. Smartphones and tablets are packing an endless amount of entertainment for on-the-go (or on-the-deck) use. The one thing that they can't seem to pack into that tiny form factor is decent sound.

There are a lot of manufacturers coming out with wireless devices to make that audio experience a lot nicer. One of the latest is the Sony SRS-BTX500 Premium Bluetooth Wireless Speaker, which pumps up the volume of almost any portable device.

New for 2013, the SRS-BTX500 includes all of the latest wireless bells and whistles you'd want in a tabletop speaker. Well, except for AirPlay; there's none of that here. Instead, Sony opted for Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, as well as AptX and AAC Bluetooth codecs. Also notable is that this is a 2.1 system, which means there's a built-in subwoofer to fill out the sound a bit.

At 4.7 pounds, the SRS-BTX500 feels pretty hefty. It's got a nice, solid build with sound to match. Inside, there are a pair of 1.88-inch speakers, a 3.25-inch woofer, and a bunch of Sony's secret sauce that's known as DMC technology. DMC combines the aforementioned dual passive radiators, magnetic fluid speakers, and clear phase digital signal processing into one super-slim package.

Who do you think will win? A bone-stock Bugatti Veyron, which is one of the world’s fastest production cars to date complete with a 16-cylinder 1,001hp engine? Or a Nissan Juke-R modified to put out around 700hp?

Sandisk Extreme II SSD review - fast, inexpensive solid-state drive


Sandisk's newly launched Extreme II SSD offers a nice blend of price and performance. In its larger capacities, the drive retails for considerably less than a buck a gigabyte, and it's one of the fastest drives with large files that we've tested. Its performance with small files, on the other hand, is merely average, and the drop-off in write performance from the 240- and 480GB models to the 120GB version is steep.

UltraEdit 19 review - an excellent text editor for developers


UltraEdit 19 is a feature-rich and powerful text editor. It doesn't just have a kitchen-sink list of features. It's got a kitchen sink full of bells and whistles crammed inside another sink. When many developers are focusing on stripped-down software for the exploding mobile and tablet markets, it's nice to see someone out there is still thinking, "But what else can we add?" See all software reviews.

Jeep prices the aesthetically challeneged 2014 Cherokee starting at $22,995


Jeep officially announced the pricing for its all-new and very aesthetically challenged 2014 Jeep Cherokee, which starts at just $22,995 without a $995 destination charge. Hitting the showrooms later this year, the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has had it rough ever since it was released, with many calling it plain ugly. Though I personally can’t pass judgement since I have yet to see it in person. But I will admit that the pictures really haven’t done much for me either.

Report: Mercedes-Benz supposedly jumping on the four-door hatchback frenzy with a C-Class hatchback


Word in the pipeline via Autobild.de is that Mercedes-Benz might be jumping on the four-door compact shooting brake-like frenzy after BMW upped the ante with the 3- and 5-Series Gran Turismo models. Previous, we heard through the grapevine that Audi was also in the works with their own competitor.

Klipsch Image One review - headphones go heavy on the bass
