Small turbo engines don't deliver | Consumer Reports
In the quest for better fuel economy, Ford is offering small turbocharged engines in the Ford Fusion and Ford Escape. And Chevy put a turbo engine in its Chevrolet Cruze. But Consumer Reports' tests find those small engines come up short. Find out how other vehicles perform with our Guide to Fuel Economy: http://bit.ly/QxSuoQ





Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #27: Models to Avoid
When you're spending your hard-earned money on a car, we think you deserve a good one - and some models are better than others. This episode focuses on those models we think you should avoid, presented by category. Don't confuse this with a list of the "worst cars." Cars like the BMW 7-Series and Ford Taurus certainly aren't among the worst cars out there, but they are bad choices within their respective market segments. As with the other shows, this episode will also be available through the iTunes store and SoundCloud.

2014 Mazda 6 iGrand Touring Review and Road Test
This week we look at Mazda's new CamCord fighter the all-new 2014 Mazda6. Can Mazda pull off a solid mid-sized sedan after their divorce from the Blue Oval? Join us as we find out. We got our hands on the 2.5L iGrand Touring version. Since iLoop had not been released officially yet be sure to check back when we get our hands on that extremely mild hybrid system. 2014 brings Mazda's new corporate grille to the Mazda6, and I have to say, it's a beautiful schnoz. I was a little worried the gaping maw would be too large in person, (in pictures it looks enormous) but up-close-and-personal it has to be the second most attractive front end after the Fusion. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but during the week I was unable to find anyone who disagreed with me. So my opinion reigns supreme. I'm worried however, the proportions look perfect on the Mazda6, so what will the Mazda3 be like? Why am I worried? Because if you park the Mazda6 next to a CX-9 or CX-5, the crossovers look more cartoonish than if they park alone. Just like your girlfriend seems pretty until you park her next to Megan Fox. Although the 2014 model looks longer than the outgoing Mazda6, overall length has been cut by about two inches. Adding "visual length" as well as much-needed rear seat room, the wheelbase has been stretched by two inches to 111.4. Mazda's nose may be a notch below the Ford in my style-guide, but out back it's a different story. I find the Fusion's rump to be a little awkward. It's almost as if Ford ran out of time and "hurried" the back end of their family hauler. Not so with the Mazda6 which has a finished look from the "raised eyebrow" tail lamps to the twin chrome Exhausts. Thanks to the best butt in the business, I call the Ford v. Mazda beauty contest a tie. How about the Koreans? I never warmed to the Sonata, but the Optima is aggressive and attractive, just not as emotional as the Mazda6. Thanks to the low sales volume, the Mazda is also a step outside the ordinary, something that attracts me. Something that has confused reporters in the past is Mazda's new transmission. Some describe it as a hybrid between a dual clutch and a traditional automatic, some have even suggested that it can "disable" the torque converter. In addition to the 6-speed manual transmission you can opt for the SkyActiv branded traditional automatic transaxle. Traditional? What about the fancy clutches? Here's what Mazda did. Lock-up torque converters are nothing new, having been introduced in 1949, but in our age of efficiency companies are using them more aggressively. By locking the impeller and turbine (input and output) of the torque converter, you increase efficiency by cutting most of the impelling losses in the torque converter (there are still some because it's still spinning, but it's greatly reduced). Old transmissions only did this in their final gear and relatively infrequently. Modern automatics like GM/Ford's 6-speed transaxle spend about half their time in lock-up and will engage the locking "clutch" in most gears. Mazda's new slushbox is programmed with an aggressive lockup agenda and will lock in every gear. In addition, it spends more time in lockup (80% or more) than a competitive unit on the same driving cycle. The result is a more connected 1:1 relationship between the engine and wheels than you find in a CamFusCord.

No longer the by-product of the marriage between Ford and Mazda, the all-new 2014 Mazda 6 is now strictly all Mazda.

2014 / 2015 Volkswagen Passat TDI Review and Road Test
Once of the most frequent car advice emails I get is from the commuter that wants to save gas on their commute but doesn't want to give up the family sedan. Until recently this question narrowed the field down to a few hybrid sedans, but in 2014 the field is wide open with hybrid options galore and soon we'll have two oil burning options. While we wait for the Mazda's new SkyActiv diesel to start shipping in the USA I picked up a Volkswagen Passat TDI for a week to find out if a little diesel could bring some cost reduction to my commute. Join me as I dive deep into the TDI and compare it to the latest gasoline electric hybrids like the nee 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid.
