AUTO REVIEW—The internet is filled with videos and stills of cats performing feats ranging from the silly to the stupendous. These are among the most popular go-to sites online, but Jaguar may have them all beat. The new F-Type R Coupe performs cat tricks like no other. Harvey Schwartz reports, and presents his owns still shots of this amazing cat.
AUTO REVIEW— I am driving a car that I really like a lot. Do I love it? If it were human, would I put a ring on it? Probably not, but we would be really good friends. There’s a lot to like about the 2016 Kia Optima EX, a reasonably priced good-for-everything type vehicle that makes an excellent daily driver. It’s spacious, practical and looks great. Honestly, I have been a fan of Optima in recent years because the car has definite eye appeal. It hasn’t always been that way but, over the years, Optima has evolved into quite a head-turner. Reed “The Traffic Guy” Berry reports.
AUTO REVIEW—It’s the introduction of the fourth generation Mazda Miata MX-5. The new model is less an update of the last version, with the size and proportions more akin to the original that debuted in 1989. The result is an all-new roadster that seriously raises the bar. While I had ample praise for the last generation Miata and its ability to do almost everything asked of it well, the 2016 model raises the bar by feet, not inches.
AUTO REVIEW— Are you cool enough to own a Jeep? Not the comfy, four-door, enclosed, SUV Jeep. A REAL, iconic Jeep? Open air, high ride height, squared off, function over form, short wheelbase, tall tires, in-your-face Tank green Willys-style Jeep? Feel up to it? We tested the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Willys and found ourselves dreaming of off-road adventures, camping excursions, and generally having a good time at the beach or mountains or wherever else we decided to go. Harold Osmer reports.
