The latest RR Sport is evidence that field-and-stream Elvis has left the building, perhaps forever. Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the now official performance arm of the brand, has gotten hold of the Range Rover Sport and turned it into something both dreams and nightmares are made of. With a performance-tuned engine that spits out 550 horses and 502 lb-ft of torque, the SVR is an unequivocal monster, the fastest Land Rover ever made - and one we attempted to tame when we recently got behind the wheel.
Since its beginnings in 1976, the Honda Accord nameplate has become synonymous with reliability and affordability. The best-selling Japanese car made Car and Driver's 10 Best list a record 30 times. It's no wonder Honda keeps building them, even the coupe variant - a segment many other mainstream automakers have abandoned. Now in its 9th generation, the Accord Coupe doesn't rest on its laurels. With a major refresh for 2016, the Accord reminds us that Honda is still committed to building sturdy vehicles, and with five different trim levels there is something to please everyone, including the driving enthusiast, with the available V6.
The competition amongst sport-luxury sedans is always fierce, with BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and Lexus always in the melee. Attention-grabbing looks, cossetting cabins, ample amenities and, of course, solid handling and performance are prerequisites in order to be taken seriously in this field. Just keeping up with the segment's continual state of flux requires rapt solid attention and an eye for detail. That being said, Lexus is changing things up again but it's more than just body work this time.
