Latest on Autocar

Mercedes is turning up the heat in the super sedan wars with the arrival later in the year (Q3) of the new (and renamed) AMG C 63. We have the report from its international launch in Portugal. If you like Porsches, we have a triple treat for you with reviews of three GTS models, the Cayenne, the Cayman and the 911. Sticking with the supersports theme, the Lamborghini Huracan features this month, the speedster setting a new performance record for the magazine. Coming soon to a Volvo dealership near you is the new XC90, some 13 years in the making, and we have a first impression for you of the new seven-seater. There are two SUV twin tests. In the first, a 4wd faceoff, we compare the new Subaru Outback and the Skoda Octavia Scout while in the second, a freshened CR-V meets the newly revised CX-5. We also have reports on the Mercedes-Benz CLS 500, complete with the brand's first nine-speed auto, the new Audi TT, and the manual version of the Mazda2, the only three-pedal car tested all month. Mention of three, the Yamaha Tricity also features, a scooter with three wheels, along with a ride report of the all-new Honda CBR650F. There are also the usual views from our wise columnists and news stories on upcoming exotics displayed at the Geneva motor Show.
