ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH
2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0 Premium

AUTO REVIEW—No, they’re not all high. Long before Colorado legalized marijuana, Subaru has been the most popular car in that state (for that matter, also in Maine, Washington, and Connecticut). The entire line has all-wheel drive, and the quality and reliability of its products are well-known. Harvey Schwartz reviews one of the most popular of this popular line, the 2015 Imprea 2.0 Premium.

DANCING WITH THE STARS
2015 Mazda3 S 5-Door Grand Touring

AUTO REVIEW—Editor-at-Large Doug Stokes gives the Mazda3 5-Door Grand Touring a 10 out of 10 in the category of…Dance. That puts it in some pretty star-studded territory—except that the Mazda can be had for just a tad more than the proverbial plug nickel. It’s all about the balance. Stokes explains why this one can dance with the stars.

THE BIG FIVE 0
2015 Ford Mustang GT 50 Year Edition

AUTO REVIEW—It’s not just the new 5.0 motor we’re talking about. This year marks 50 years since the original Ford Mustang. For its golden anniversary, Ford has produced an all-new Mustang—one with four-wheel independent suspension, and an available turbocharged four to supplement the familiar base V6 and premium V8. Senior Contributing Editor Harvey Schwartz reports on the 2015 Ford Mustang GT 50 Year Edition—an eight banger with all the trimmings.

THE LONE RANGER
2015 KIA Soul EV

AUTO REVIEW—Among the pure electric vehicles in its price class, the new KIA Soul EV stands alone in wearing an EPA-rated range in the 90s—93 miles to be exact. But in our 80-mile Monrovia-to-Santa Ana-and-back-to-Monrovia freeway loop, the Soul EV completed it with over 40 miles to spare. That’s a new record for pure electrics in our book, giving this electrified compact crossover the coveted title of The Lone Ranger.

FROM BREAD AND BUTTER
To toast and jam

AUTO REVIEW—For 2015, Toyota took its popular bread and butter Camry, dialed up the heat and sugar, and turned it into toast and jam. Editor-at-Large Doug Stokes samples the most flavorful Camry of them all—the new XSE V6.
