2012 Hyundai Accent
2012 Hyundai Accent - Editors' Notebook - Automobile Magazine
Small and stylish with substance.

At the press event, every journalist in attendance kept commending the Accent's size. While it's true that the interior is quite spacious for a subcompact (the EPA rates it as a compact), the Accent still drives like a small car. The short wheelbase -- and relatively stiff suspension of our SE model -- makes the car crash over highway irregularities and skip like a stone on a lake over expansion joints. In the city, the Hyundai performs much better.

Ecoboost comes to two more nameplates, this time in 4-cylinder form.

For 2012, Ford is putting its Ecoboost technology to work in its popular Explorer and Edge sport-utilities, in a quest for better gas mileage. Previously available only with V-6 engines (which continue), the Explorer and the Edge are both adding a turbocharged, direct-injected 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

Deep Dive: Mercedes' Big Plans for Small Cars
Deep Dive: Mercedes' Big Plans for Small Cars - Automobile Magazine
Seven models, four green powertrains, AMG variants -- and one for Infiniti?

Mercedes-Benz has never been afraid to think outside the box when it comes to producing small cars, but neither has it met with great success. The rear-engine Smart is struggling. Ties with Chrysler and Mitsubishi unraveled. And then there are the A-class and the B-class, which, despite an innovative sandwich-floor platform, haven't matched the impact of BMW's Mini brand, let alone Volkswagen's Golf.
